Bigfoot and the ghost of CJ's mum did it.

GTA V delay: Rockstar dismisses 'conspiracy theories'

Well I'm sure the quality could be improved a lot by PUTTING IT ON NEXT GEN CONSOLES! You'd have to get up pretty early in the morning to catch me out, Rockstar.

Now you must excuse me while I make a fresh tinfoil hat for the day and start tweeting about Beyonce's triangular Illuminati hand signal last night...

The old San Andreas myths were great, surely everybody spent a few hours searching for Bigfoot?

GTA V delay: Rockstar dismisses 'conspiracy theories'

Postby fatgangsta » 04 Feb 2013, 17:09

This was said last week when the news was dumped on us all and my opinion is it's left with a sour taste in my mouth because i would love insanely to play the game but then again i would rather them polish the game to make the game even better but i still reckon there will be the odd bug as always.

The other situation is with the 20th coming ps4 what ever the release date is for that the amount of time from the release of GTA 5 to the release of the console would you seriously buy a brand new Ps3 when ps4 could be coming a month or 3 later? so second hand Ps3 are going to be sold just to get your fix of GTA 5

Awesome. I love a good bit of conspiracy theory. I hadn't realised that Beyonce was so heavily involved with it all. Illuminati no less. Even named her kid for it.

I reckon they will release it on both this gen and Next gen. An improved version for next gen, with better draw distances and more characters on screen. Or put your Xbox 360 version in your new xbox and with the aid of a patch it will present you with an improved version (let's call this forward compatibility)

Hey the ghost cars were real (though not ghosts, more like Christine), i had many of them just roll up behind me up in the Vinewood Hills and the Back O'Beyond, they'd stop moving as soon as they were on screen for more than a few seconds.

Honest injun!

They are doing it to avoid clashing with the release of Shaq Fu 2 - El Mag told me so.

I remember going looking for Leatherface in the Panopticon area for ages. Obviously never found him but it kept me busy!
Here's a lockpick, now jog on.

Don't forget the lake monster in Red Dead Redemption an' all. I still sometimes look that for that f**ker and he didn't even have the decency to turn up in Undead Nightmare, though it's probably for the best because the Bigfoot mission in that made my eyes sweat great salty globules of regret.

I'd love to see this released for the Wii U, the console is great so far and a lot to look forward to. And hopefully the PC players get it also and maybe released along with the PS4 and Xbox720. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible and it would be great for everyone who any of the mentioned consoles/computer.

not really you know the price here in blighty and in Europe for a ps4 or a Xbox 720 will be insane compared to the Us and Japan and the games will be £50 for a top price game so better off out for this generation rather than the next it will be cheaper in the long run

I still think the delay was for the MP. It was only just before Christmas they had that survey going that asked fans what they would like from the MP so they probably only just got started on it.
