  • Nice, thank you Rockstar!

  • Am I right I thinking the Digital version is Next Gen only (out on 11th November) and the Physical is for Last Gen? The store front only states the platform for the digital version is PS5 and not PS4.

    • It looks like there isn’t a dedicated PS5 version. It’s the PS4 game played via BC on PS5. PSN only has one entry for this game and it’s tagged with both PS4 and PS5 labels.

    • Loads and loads of games are tagged wrongly as PS5 only on the store.

      Not sure if it’s done to make it seem like there’s more PS5 only titles, or it’s just a mistake.

      Generally it will mention it will work on PS4 in the text though.

    • @MiseryPrincess Yeah they’ve just updated the title to say (Ps4 and PS5)

    • Hej vad heter du

  • If the PS Now version is PS4 only and not PS5, then there is no point. If streaming is currently not possible for PS5 games, they should at least be downloadable.

    • The PS5 is backwards compatible with PS4 games. Lol The game will be downloadable and streamable.

    • Can confirm. I have PS Now and PS5 both streams and downloads PS4 games, and it does it with a much better PS5 UI, rather than the PS3 UI used on PS4. Now is much more fluid on PS5.

  • The pre-order page says it’s for the PS4 Pro, I’ve only got a normal PS4. :/ Will this work on mine?

  • So, that’s why it’s taking so long for the next-gen gta 5 to release. You could have said so. Did you think we weren’t going to find out?
    Why do game producers always act so shady?

    • The post states that this project was done by Grove Street Games, so no, this would not have affected gta

    • …affected GTA 6 development.

    • It does not state that the WHOLE project was done by them. It was “adapted to modern platforms” by Grove Street Games. Did you even read AND understand the article?

    • I believe this is being made by Ruffian Games that Rockstar bought a while back, a studio that worked a bit on the Crackdown games. So the Unreal Engine part makes perfect sense. I think they are called Rockstar Dundee now.

      This would hardly affect anything going on over at Rockstar North so I have no clue what you lot are talking about here.

    • No one believes anything you say, Andy. Especially when you like to make up random lies to try and look better in your replies.

  • Very confused by this hot mess. No physical PS5 release, and suggestions that the digital release is also PS4 only, ie. PS5 via BC, but with 4K and 60fps… presumably like the PS4 games that received a patch.

    And that’s without individual titles hitting Game Pass and PS Now, but no mention of whether we can buy them separately.

  • Will there be a physical version of the PS5 version. They only mentioned PS4 and on Best Buy Canada I can only see the PS4 version

  • All we had to do was release a PS5 version, CJ!

  • Looks great, I hope they didn’t change the driving physics and mechanics, that was my favorite part of this trilogy. Can’t wait to drive a Kuruma again.

  • Why is there no physical copy of the PS5 version?

  • Yesssss! This made me smile

    • I was a 13 year old kid when GTA 3 first released. Now 33, I’m more excited than ever to play through Liberty City and Vice City again. San Andreas was the only GTA I have never played once, can’t wait to experience it for the first time.

  • Nice 👌🏽💯 Thank’s RockStar, Now i can play my favorite Grand Theft Vice City 🌃 with better graphics than ever before!!!! 😊

  • i am definitely getting this game 100%! it just looks really good, even for an remaster… now this is a proper remaster of the old GTA games! soooo existed for this! :D

  • Why is there no physical disc release version for PS5 though ?

  • The only concerns I have is that this appears to have been made by the same devs that destroyed the HD versions… Also, there hair looks like clay. LoL. Rest looks great tho, Fingers crossed.

  • This looks great. New but still retains the same style like they said. THIS is what I would love to see for something like a Twisted Metal 1 and 2 or Driver remaster. Something that gives them a new lick of paint but not a full blown remake that would cost millions and too much time to make. Like the millions and time Sony wasted on DOALoop.

    • Oh and Ridge Racer. The first 4 PS1 Ridge Racer games, remastered in this sort of scope and style would be glorious.

    • Twisted Metal remasters would be great, First two were my favs. I also hope they make a full length PSVR2 game. The IP could work really well in VR, and could be another major 1st party VR game.

      I never heard or Ridge Racers but suddenly Im remembering Coolboarders haha. Oh and Herc’s Adventure!

  • Grove street? Hahahahaha. Just like the game they are working on.

  • I’ll admit it actually looks better than expected. That said, with there already being a GTA Trilogy (recently delisted) this is just an upgrade of that. Yes, seemingly a substantial upgrade, but what about the people that bought the previous version? Of course they can still play it, re-download if needed, etc. But there should really be an upgrade path to this version as well. Similar to Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, a discounted price was given and the upgrade process was very easy. This should be the same! Upgrade to the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition for $30, maybe even $40 if you own the previous version. This will surely well even at $60 though, would just be something nice for the consumer. I will buy the disc version in December, and hope sales are enough to warrant the rumored Red Dead Redemption remaster.

    • Never going to happen. Rockstar are going to be utter scum and charge full price for this (even more practically no visual upgrade than Ghost of Tsushima) PS5 port of GTA V.
      And they even managed to beat Sony on being worse on how they are charging for it too.

  • Rockstar stated the ps5 version will run at 4k up to 60fps. Am I correct to assume the physical copy works like the digital? So if I buy a ps4 physical copy and run it on my ps5, will it have 4k up to 60fps?

  • I’ll take this classic trilogy over gta 6 anytime!!

  • I have bought the triology nonremastered long time ago, will there be a free update?

    • That would be fantastic for existing users, especially since it’s delisted now so new customers have no choice but to get this version anyway. I doubt it will happen though even at a discounted upgrade price, certainly not a free upgrade. Though that would be a great PR move if Sony could make that happen… *ahem*.

  • You should have made a physical PS5 version for this. Absolutely inexcusable that you didn’t.

  • The retail version that will be released on december 7th is the ps5 version or not? And if you buy the ps4 version retail will it have the graphical improvements on ps5 or it will run on compatibility mode?

  • Amazing! Can’t wait!

  • wow wow gta😱❤

  • I already have GTA San Andreas bought digitally the original version, So im wondering will i get the remaster for free or an update?

  • Does the PS4 physical version include a Free PS5 upgrade? The physical copy is cheaper in my country.

  • Don’t see a version that works for both ps4 and 5 yet. I don’t have a ps5, may never get one, but I don’t want to pay for a whole new game if I do. Call of Duty, Gran Turismo and other games are sold as PS4/5 compatible, so I’ll wait and see with GTA.

  • Y’all need to remake a GTA 4 also. Y’all really forgot about the GTA IN NEW YORK, smfh

  • Will the PS4 physical disc upgrade to the PS5 version? I don’t buy digital games.

  • All the “controversial” bits have been edited out so no crybabies will be offended… I honestly didn’t think Rockstar would do this. Looks like this is just another big money-grab and I think I’ll just stick to the originals if I ever feel like playing them again. Remasters on games this old won’t add much improvement, anyway. Should have just remade them, or, at least one of them, like 2K did with Mafia, which, by the way, looked incredible. This is a hard PASS for me! I’ll save my money.

  • Voice acting and music are both 👍👍, but I really don’t like the character models.

  • So no physical release for Playstation 5.

    So it might be included on the “expanded and Enhanced” PS5 version?

  • yall should have made it available for digital download on PS4

  • Original music in vice city?

  • Can the gaming industry stop with these remasters seriously Alan wake remastered gta trilogy remastered mass affect trilogy remastered crisis trilogy remastered etc can’t think of anything else to make so they just remaster older games if ya gonna go back to older games how about remake it from the ground up not these cash grab remasters btw remastered games are overrated af

  • The PlayStation store has it being released today on 11/10/21 but time is counting down still, really should but correct dates on the games!
