The next GTA has been confirmed by Gamespot. Go to their E3 coverage to learn more about the PS3 (but sadly, not much more about the next GTA)

I am 100% stunned.

@ GTA-Raptor: It was obvious from the second Sony anounced Blu-Ray in the PS3.

hate exclusivity contracts.....if they don't release the the next gta for pc atleast they will be shooting themsleves in the foot.

i play gta for gta but mainly i get into for the modding and ps3 no modding. the next gta will have to be pretty hot shit for me to fork out the money for a new playstation.

and no not a fan of xbox either(xbox 360 is a dumb name.) so don't go on with "you starting a console war!!" just not a fan of the new looks out there for the systems and ouch that ps3 controler looks painful.

that controller freaks me out LOL so the Xbox 360 and PS3 are both silver??? you know how the exclusive deals work, the xbox and pc versions will come out later on... but the next gta will be on PS3 first, dont forget about the PSP game! I guess Rockstar just loves Sony, so the marriage continues...

If the file size for the next GTA goes above that of San Andreas (which it most likely will) then it will be impossible for a GTA game to come out on Xbox 360.

PS3 looks good it'll be faster than xbox, but not double. The advantages of PS3 are:
1 - Main RAM isn't shared whith video RAM, and it will be very fast at core speed.
2 - 8 processing units, which means more tasks running very fast. And great programming possibilities.
3 - Fast GPU.
And about GTA4, check out IGN:
-------------------------------
May 16, 2005 - Despite early reports that claimed Grand Theft Auto would be a PS3 launch title (gotta love that early launch chaos), we have confirmed with our editors at the Sony E3 press event that no new GTA title has been confirmed for Sony's upcoming machine.



What Rockstar did confirm, however, was that it would be supporting the powerhouse system in the future and that it's looking forward to creating living, breathing worlds with the Cell technology.

Evidence of this could be found in Rockstar's PS3 trailer that showed an old-west style desert game that is as of yet unnamed. We'll have more on that in just a few minutes.
-------------------------------
So, Rockstar Rocks!:) It's too early for the next GTA.

I think Nintendo is going to be out of the picture soon if they don't step up their game. I don't even think Revolution will hold a match to this inferno. I like the fact that we are getting better more advanced systems. Don't know if I'll buy a PS3 right off the bat. Nothing is getting the chance to run a course like the original PlayStation. After all it pretty much owned the market when it came out and it owned it for years. PS2 hasn't had as long of a run. Partially because Xbox was an honorable adversary. I'm looking forward to experiencing both new systems however i don't like the new controller for the PS3. I don't know what Sony is thinking changing their controller style. The current controller is perfect. It fits comfortably in the hand and is easy to use. This one is just painful to look at in my opinion. Anyway, Happy Gaming!

Exacly what Xeroer said. Read this article, and no 'Grand Theft Auto' game has been confirmed for the Play Station3 Home Entertainment System.


They haven't even considered to start making it yet. Even if a new GTA title is announced, it surely won't be for atleast two to three more years.

Fortunetly my self i never liked consoles and this is just a fancey dsign to grab people just so they can show of to freinds having a nice peace of shiny plastic under the telli with a RIVA TNT1 inside this thing wont run sh*t i can tell

the only time you need silly designs is when you dont have anyhting to put in it (in other words waste all the money on plastic and the rest on a riva tnt1)

I thanku altho i have made it clear i dont like the thing the design is still good but needs something more than power its to clean and heartless needs some heart like PS2

I think ALL of u agree with me when I say that the PS2 had the best controller available, MAYBE, just maybe this new one even though it looks a bit odd, might be good too, like handling-wise. But I guess we'll have to wait to touch it.

Damnit, it's not going to cost over $350 at launch. That just doesn't work in the console market.

Oh, and Dankill:

PS3 = 2.18TFLOPS total CPU power where Xbox 360 is about 1TFLOP

So yeah, it's twice as powerfull.

san andreas xbox trailer on IGN.com !!! its fn great, the music is Eminence Front from The Who, I love that song... 1 minute trailer, I think its better than all the ps2 trailers... check it out, you can download the wmv version too, Ive already watched it about 20 times, it kicks ass, san andreas xbox june 7th baby! the official countdown has begun, only 20 -21 days 3weeks! heck yeah

I think that is the best controller I've seen for a console. I know that it looks weird, but it looks sssoooo comfortable. Look how the d-pad and buttons are turned to the side. I seriously think it will rock.

PS3, just.....unbelievable. Sony comes out on top again, rolling xbox like its mashed potatoes. but it might being $465? even thought it does sound good, it's jus a whole $200 more than the ps2. they should at least have it around $350. but Sony did a kick ass job on the ps3. i give all thumbs up

Youve got to be kidding me... Sony *I BELIEVE* hasnt even shown real footage. All weve seen is pre-rendered. If I can see some live footage like what weve seen from the Killzone 2 video, Ill definately buy it, but Sony may be promising more than it will deliver. PS3 isnt even playable at E3....

According to the conference video I've seen, they say everything shown is in real time running on the PS3. Not only that, but I've also heard that the final product will be even more powerful than the one shown at E3.

Yeah what Sony has shown was not pre-rendered, it was real time.

When a system rocks so hard people think it's pre-rendered you know it's good.

The controller is shaped like a boomerang to ease the concerns of gamers who would frequently throw their controllers.
