    I think I've bought it 5 times so far... bought GTA 5 on PS3 first, then got it again when I upgraded to the PS4, then a copy came with my Xbox One, and then I also have 2 copies on PC (one via Rockstar and one via Steam). Two versions on PC because one is kept vanilla so I can dip in and out of the official GTA Online servers and the other is heavily modded for roleplay servers through FiveM.

    Exactly, if it is still a cash cow, you keep milking it and keep on improving GTA6. It is what I would do, because if for some reason GTA6 is not as big of a hit they will have shot them selves in the foot. I am sure GTA5 will do fine for another 2 years, once sales on next gen consoles start to dry up they will release GTA6 :)

    Plus this is a great opportunity for them to sell they GTA5 one more time again on next gen consoles.


    Soon you will have your 6th copy on PS5? :p

    Hopefully not, but more than likely will cave eventually... definitely proves that they can keep milking it though if people like me keep getting new copies.

    They'll only release it once the next gen consoles have sold a sufficient number of units to make it worthwhile, I'd say it's at least 3 years away at best.

    Makes sense to me. It is around then I will buy a PS5 myself, as that is when there will be a lot more games, and price will be down. I recon we will get it for £399 with an extra controller and game in 2-3 years time. That is when I intend to buy it. Zero interest in the Xbox, as I have a pc and play it’s exclusives on there if I wish.

    Nah, it was Sony's fault for making GTA5 the opening to their big showcase.

    Anyway, back on track... really hoping to see some more info about Pragmata in the next couple of months, the trailer looked good but was extremely vague on what it was actually about.

    I doubt we'll see anything again until next year re: Pragmata.

    PS5 this year for me, don't really need the X when the majority of the games are released on PC anyway.

    Look forward to hearing more details soon.

    I must be one of the few that has never played GTA5.... Never had the sort of time needed, but might give it a try this time.

    You’ll need to find even more time when you try to load into online sessions.

    How small do you think cabinets are (assuming it's horizontal rather than vertical). I thinking fitting an Xbox under a TV will be harder.

    I just had a look in my games cabinet and it appears I already have it on 360 and PS4...... Will have to give it a go, but with 2 kids and a very demanding job, it's hard to find time for this sort of game .

    Not sure there is a "harder" here. They're both potentially a problem, depending on the cabinet in question.

    Both consoles are significantly larger than typical consoles/DVD players/set-top boxes. So if it's a cabinet with shelving designed for those, a Series X probably isn't going to fit. But the PS5 is hardly svelte either; with the stand it seems to be around 12.5cm thick. There's every chance neither will fit (which is the case with my unit). If the cabinet is designed to take home cinema amps, both are probably fine (though the PS5's length is pushing it, and may be too long for some units).

    Neither will fit in my Besta unit as it's configured now. They're both too tall (when laid horizontally).

    when is everybody selling their PS4's remember if you leave it too long you won't get much because the market will be flooded.

    They both appear to be designed like chimneys, with the heat being drawn up through the top. The XsX will be an issue whichever way you have it, but I am eager to see how the PS5 copes laying down - will this affect the thermals significantly?

    It’s funny, during the reveal I went giddy as a school kid when I saw GT7.......but now I think about it, I haven’t enjoyed a GT game for quite a while. Am really looking forward to GoW though.

    The amount of airflow caused by heat will be completely overshadowed by even the smallest amount of airflow from a fan.
