GTA 5 PS5: 10 Improvements & Features Rockstar MUST Add
How Rockstar can convince you to buy their game for the THIRD time.
It's easy to be cynical about the upcoming release of Grand Theft Auto V on next-gen consoles. While the world eagerly anticipates the next instalment in the long running franchise, Rockstar seem content with rereleasing their most succesful title to date on any platform they can.
In fairness, this makes complete sense on Rockstar's part.
GTA V has sold over 135 million copies, generated more than $6 billion in revenue and continues to be in the best selling game charts every week. There is no guarantee that the next game will be able to bring that same level of success, so why would Rockstar bother killing their current hot property for a new one?
Despite their impressive sales though, Rockstar may face a challenge convincing people to buy their game yet again on the new systems. Getting people to buy a game for the third time is a difficult undertaking, especially when the current-gen versions aren't going anywhere anytime soon.
However, here are some things Rockstar can do to make the transition a little easier to stomach.
10. Load Times
This one's a given.
Grand Theft Auto V, particularly in its online suite, has always struggled when it comes to load times. Just booting up the game takes several minutes, while loading into a job in GTA Online can be a frustrating wait. However with the new consoles, Rockstar should be able to rectify many of these problems.
Since the next-gen consoles are going to be equipped with SSDs Rockstar need to do all they can to optimise the game in order to make sure that players are spending more time in the game and less staring at a spinning circle. Not only is this one of the easiest ways Rockstar should be able to sell players on buying their game for the third time, but it could also entice players into spending more money on Shark Cards, since more time in the game means more time burning through money.
Please Rockstar, we don't want to need to have our phones by our side so we can fire up a game of Temple Run every time we want to start a race.
