What is the point in these analysts, do they actually have a purpose? They don't know anything, only Rockstar and take two know their plans.

I've yet to see solid proof of these so called next gen consoles coming out at that time, just analyst talk and rumour speculation. Then again with the way a lot of people suddenly went from "Pfft, we don't need them" to "We need next gen!" I wouldn't be surprised if these companies latch on to that hype and go along with it earlier than expected. If there was to be a version of GTA V coming out on them (which I also have yet to see any evidence of happening) around that time, I'd only expect it to be done the same way they did Smackdown vs Raw 2007, just a better looking version of it but not developed anywhere near enough to take advantage of the hardware it's on.

To those of you saying or seeing various conspiracy theories about there being some other ulterior motive for this delay, rest assured that they’re all nonsense – literally the only reason we’ve delayed the release is because we want the game to be as good as it needs to be.

For those of you asking about the official box art, that will be coming out a bit later as well.

Thank you all for understanding.

That's from RockStar themselves and we have to take it at the moment with a pinch of salt now if around that release date the new Xbox came out i would smell a dirty great big rat called Microsoft and RockStar

How can I get a job as an analyst? They seem to make a good living of guesses and assumptions.

Sometimes they state the obvious, sometimes it's guess work but most of all it's analysing things...

The clue is in the name and once analysed, they have to present and advise.

The good ones make a lot of money, because they in turn make a lot of money for the company they analyse for.

As for this piece of news, poop... I was looking forward to 5 sooner rather than later.

The comments by people on the official website are disgusting.

Revolting, useless privileged little sods should all have been drowned at birth.

I wish I was joking.

Anyone can be an analyst in games, you can say things that aren't even true and never will be, like the guy from Game Trailers.

This analyst is full of crap the next GTA on a next gen console will be the next game. GTA5 will be on PS3, PC and 360 because everyone owns one.

Why can't they do both? Two bites of the cherry.

GTA games, with their hugely varied terrain (textures) and long view distances are particularly well placed to use all that rumoured extra memory for next gen consoles.

Rockstar aren't like that though.

Gutted, was hoping this game would see me through the summer lean spell and up until the release of the next gen. If they release a next gen version after the launch for this gen i will be buying it twice.

Yeah I've wondered this too, why is everyone so sure we are getting new consoles this year. Sony and Microsoft haven't said a thing.

IMO there won't be next gen consoles this year. Sony or MS haven't even announced them yet. In the past the release was always at least a year after they were announced. Christmas 2014 that's my prediction :D
