Why you'll buy GTA 5 again on Xbox One/PS4/PC
Karl Slatoff says a raft of visual improvements and new content will make the new versions a "very compelling" proposition.
The improvements featured in the upcoming Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC versions of Rockstar's 2013 open-world hit, Grand Theft Auto V, are so numerous and compelling that people who already bought the game for Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will have a tough time saying no to spending another $60 for an additional copy.
That's according to Take-Two Interactive president Karl Slatoff, who said during an MKM Partners Entertainment & Leisure Conference today that the upcoming Xbox One and PS4 versions of GTA V could also help sell hardware.
GTA V for new consoles will offer "something very special," not only in the form of better graphics, but also from a content perspective, Slatoff said.
The game will also offer major visual and technical upgrades like increased draw distances and higher resolution overall. In addition, GTA V for Xbox One, PS4, and PC will include more weapons, vehicles, and activities; additional wildlife; denser traffic; a new foliage system; and better damage and weather effects.
"The world is going to feel more rich; it's going to be more vivid; it's going to be more alive," Slatoff said. "We think the value proposition will be very compelling."
