Why the hell would a developer make the next GTA on the Wii? HD GTA games are huge! How would the Wii run that? Oh wait, Rockstar can just tone down the graphics and provide the Wii userbase with half the missions right? No they can't because it wouldn't sell at all as being the massively inferior game. So far the only GTA big hitters are on the 360, PSP and PS3. We saw what the DS could do with the franchise and it just managed a million which is sad for a GTA game and now people expect GTA 5 for the Wii lol?

As for the CTW PSP arguement, how would anyone expect great or better sales from CTW PSP when the game was built with touch screen controls for the DS? It's a late port on a system that already has two full 3D GTA's and now all of a sudden a 2.5D GTA game is gonna sell great? Don't think so, and I also don't think that this warrants the PSP out of the picture for a toned down version of GTA 5 or maybe even SA stories.

I do hope that the next mainline GTA game is announced at this years E3. And as someone mentioned already in this thread the devs should re-release the PS2 GTA's for the HD twins in one set box, that would be amazing. In fact all devs should do that for the PS2/Xbox franchises, GoW only proved how good sales can be and it only takes about about 15% dev time in comparison to a full game.



I believe the next GTA will be announced, it won't be called GTA V, and it will initially be for the PS3 and 360 with a release for the PC at a later time.



GTA SA>GTA CW are best

My argument for claiming it will be on the Wii is that the Wii is the console with the highest userbase, and has been shown time and time again to be the best system for selling games and the best system for making profits. Seems like a decent argument to me :P

 

So it is infact as if I made the claim that humans exist, and you are all claiming they don't

has There Even been a 3rd Party Game to Go Over 3 Mil On Wii?

How about a Exclusive Mature game To sell over 300k?

So your saying

Nintendo Games Sell Great on Wii, Wii has The highest Userbase = GTA5 on Wii? sure But it might end up like CTW, then get ported to PSP

now we might see A GTA Game on wii Someday, But not for the reasons your listing

Maybe a Multiplat GTA For PSP and Wii.



Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Forest Swords

Maybe an announcement. But man Rockstar must be working their asses off working on Agent and GTA V then.

Ok Jake the fake, tell me why you think GTA5 wont be on the Wii

You cannot use the fact that GTA:ctw sold badly on the DS, because it sold worse on the PSP
You cannot use the fact that GTA4 was not on the Wii, because that was developed back when analysts were still predicting incredibly low sales for the Wii

Go!

What exactly is your argument for saying it will be on the wii.

The only arguments you've made are the opposites of the two arguments you're telling jake the fake he can't use.

You said "Surely you have to agree, Attoyou, that the incredible success of CTW on the DS and its incredible flop on the PSP shows where the right market is for this sort of game?" <-- even though comparing gta5 to ctw is a bad comparison, you were the one to bring it up

and if your other argument is that the wii has such a big userbase then by that logic every single dev should be makign their games for the wii.

you know what's happened here is it's as if you made a claim that alien's exist, ppl are telling you they don't. And then you're making them prove it that aliens don't exist when your original claim was totally unfounded in the first place

 

My argument for claiming it will be on the Wii is that the Wii is the console with the highest userbase, and has been shown time and time again to be the best system for selling games and the best system for making profits. Seems like a decent argument to me :P

First off, you're saying that games sell so well on the wii (don't get me wrong many have). but has there been any 3rd party mature games that sold all that particularly well in comparison to those others on the wii? Fact is, a gta game might get good sales on the wii, but to ppl who most probably already own either a ps3 or a 360.

Now, let's play w/ the notion that 3rd party devs keep making piss poor games for the wii, an argument i've heard one too many times on these threads, but a valid concern nonetheless. In this case, there is no basis for R* to go on in order to make the decision to develop a gta for the wii since there is no other games to compare it with. Therefore your comment that the wii is the best system for selling games is moot.

Finally, now I'm not all that technical on these things, but as someone else mentioned, wouldn't this game end up being cut-down either graphically or game-length/mission-wise to be ported to the wii? All this would lead to is poor sales and anger from the wii-community that 3rd parties keep sending bad games their way.

And finally, to play w/ my simile again. Someone who states that "humans exist" is stating a fact. Show me an article when a R* rep said "GTA is coming to the Wii" and then it'll be a fact. All I know is ppl shouldn't of made a big deal about your lil "PSWii60" which I liked, because who knows, it is always possible. But you should not have kept harping on it, in order to defend your lil comment, when your only argument is based on the fact that the console with the highest userbase has sold extremely well exclusively to 1st party titles only.



A GTA being announced sounds like a possibility, not sure if it'll be "GTA 5" though.

As for my favorite, I've actually got the same as scottie. Not sure if it's for the same reasons, though. All I know is, GTA 1/2 multiplayer on the PC was awesome.


I'd agree with others on a HD+Wii multiplat being unlikely. Wii games that are simply watered down HD games (which is what GTA V would be) don't do all that well.



Yes and my fav is GTA San Andreas



Is it true that the next gta will be in vice city
