No, Grand Theft Auto V isn't coming to the PlayStation 4. …we're pretty sure it isn't, anyway. 98% sure.

A certain message on the Sony UK Twitter account got a lot of people talking. As you can see, it seems Sony says GTAV will be available on the PS4.

But developer Rockstar Games was quick to respond. A company spokesperson confirmed to GameSpot that in fact, that Tweet was just a typo. Sony then updated with the following:

"Apologies for the typo about GTA V. It's due for release on PS3 on September 17th."

We've been hearing rumors that the hotly anticipated title would indeed head to next-generation consoles at some point, but Rockstar has consistently denied such reports. Maybe we'll see it eventually (perhaps some time in 2014) but for now, GTAV is only going to be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 on 09/17.

Of course they wouldn't say its coming to next gen consoles, it would be financial suicide. They would lose a large amount of people buying it now and wait for the next gen iterations. Soon as they make some good revenue they'll announce the next gen versions. It only makes sense.

gotta ask yourself though would it be such a bad idea?
the hype for this is through the freaking roof, and its out in 3 weeks time.
every man and his dogs going to go buy this in 3 weeks time, whether they know a next gen version is coming out or not.
many will say no im waiting, than they will come home on that fateful day and see their friends playing it, and say oh f*ck it and rush down to the store.
people are tripping over themselves awaiting 3 more weeks, let alone 3 more months, and thats if it would be ready as a launch title, which it cant be.

Well I'm a huge GTA fan and I'm waiting to get the game till it is released on PS4 so I guess I'm proof you're wrong?

Why do I get the feeling it will release and then 6 months later be confirmed for Xbox One but not PS4?

No rush, so I too will wait. Learned my lesson with the last two rockstar hits (GTA4, Ep of LB, GTA4 comp. Then same with RDR.)

I don't want GTA V on next-gen consoles. I want the next-gen debut of Rockstar's opus to be utterly magnificent, made for the future, not just an up-rezzed version of what we can play on the PS3. Seriously, they need to take the same approach they have this time, getting their various gameplay elements worked out by experimenting with other games before melding them all together in GTA VI.

Just my opinion.
