This is truly a next gen game by all means yet here it is doing its thing on these 7-8 year old boxes.
I just have a feeling what we've seen is either from a suped up PC or is from Xbox One/PS4. Think about guys...there's really no way we're going to get this amazing experience on this old of hardware, I swear it just seems too good to be true.
Did you see some of the games released on PS2 nearing the end of its life? Some of them looked almost as good, if not as good as very early PS3/360 games.
If a "next-gen" GTA looks this good on these systems, just imagine a GTA pushed to the limits in the next-next gen.
So far, this appears to be everything IV should have been. Doesn't seem like I am going to have to pretend to like it when it releases.
