"new entry" doesn't guarantee it's actually GTA6 though...

Re: Grand Theft Auto 6 (TBD)

This better be releasing sooner than later. If it releases in the rumored 2025 window, we will already be on the backend of the PS5's lifecycle and 12 years removed from the release of V. Get your asses moving.

One thing you can bet money on is that whatever date they do eventually give won't be a realistic one, they will delay it like they always do.

Mods, can we please change the thread title to read: "Grand theft auto 6 to a VI" like you did for me when I asked back when the GTA 5 to a V thread was opened? Come on, we got this.

Well, at least now everyone knows who is responsible for that thread title...

From the leaks I wonder if we can take hostages and negotiate with Police?

Re: Grand Theft Auto 6 (TBD)

Now people are worried about him saying "The next Grand Theft Auto" instead of "Grand Theft Auto 6" lol.

It's going to be very interesting to see if this game is the same garbage as five with the long wait just being for hype. I mention this because of how much money five made/continues to make. They could easily go less than half-ass on this game and make a HUGE killing on it. I'm also wondering if the rumored 150 dollar version of the game includes things you can ONLY get with that version - it wouldn't surprise me at all if that was the case as Rockstar/take-two are f'n worse than EA Games now with shit moves like that.

It's going to be interesting to see the first trailer and gameplay vids. I'm guessing the game itself will release in early 2025.

Re: Grand Theft Auto 6 (TBD)

I feel like they did with 5. It's a game that doesn't warrant a 10 year gap before the next game in the series. I think they weren't even expecting (to an extent) to make as much as they did with it. They can literally do anything at this point and not go wrong from the business side.

It's a ten year old game that's miles ahead of most games that are released today. Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean it sucks.

Na, it was never miles ahead of anything and that's basically my point. That and the fact that there was absolutely no reason for a 10 year gap in between games and the only reason for that gap is due to the gazillion dollars it made.

I have, but never even tried V. I think I played a little of one of them on some console way back when. I remember liking it. Except for the driving parts. But, it was fun for the time I had it. I think maybe PS2 I had for a minute.

Re: Grand Theft Auto 6 (TBD)

GTA 6 publisher CEO thinks videogame prices are "very, very low" for what they offer

But that doesn't mean publishers have the power to raise them


Speaking to investors in an earnings call this week, GTA 6 publisher Take-Two's CEO Strauss Zelnick had a bit to say about the eternally uncontroversial topic of videogame prices. In news worth holding the press for, he thinks they're pretty cheap for what you get in return.
Advertisement
Zelnick cautioned one investor against "generalising" about the state of game pricing based on the recent fortunes of TV and movie subscription services like Netflix, which have had to increase subscription fees to match their expenses after underpricing themselves initially to grow their audiences. Videogames might be all about subscription services these days, Zelnick said, but that doesn't mean they are subject to the same commercial logics as ye olde non-interactive media. In particular, it doesn't mean publishers are currently able to raise videogame prices, even if they feel like they're overdelivering.
GTA 6 publisher CEO doubts AI generation tools will make games more profitable or cheaper
Read more on Rock Paper ShotgunBy way of explanation, Zelnick shared a little of Take-Two's own methodology for calculating videogame prices (be warned that the following sentence may give you a headache). "In terms of our pricing for any entertainment property, basically the algorithm is the value of the expected entertainment usage, which is to say the per hour value times the number of expected hours plus the terminal value that's perceived by the customer in ownership, if the title is owned rather than rented or subscribed to," he

Let me try to simplify that for us non-C-suite-based lifeforms: price is about the relationship between what you get per hour, how many hours you can expect to get, and what you perceive to be the overall value of the thing you're playing, watching, etc.

"You'll see that that bears out in every kind of entertainment vehicle," Zelnick went on. "By that standard our prices are still very, very low, because we offer many hours of engagement, the value of the engagement is very high. So I think the industry as a whole offers a terrific price to value opportunity for consumers."

"That doesn't necessarily mean that the industry has pricing power, or wants to have pricing power," he added. "However, there is a great deal of value offered, and look, it's our strategy here to deliver much more value than what we charge consumers, that's always been our strategy.

"We want to ensure our experience is first class, and the nature of the experience is not just the quality of what we offer, it's what you pay for it," Zelnick continued. "Everyone knows that anecdotally. So that's how we look at it. There have been precious few pricing increases in the business. The price increase to, for example, 70 dollars for certain frontline products [in 2022] was the first price increase for many years after many generations. So I think we offer terrific value to consumers."

Zelnick is far from the only multi-millionaire exec who thinks blockbuster commercial games are considerably underpriced, though he seems relatively relaxed about it, possibly because he's in charge of the company making Grand Theft Auto.

In September, Capcom’s president Harushiro Tsujimoto gave a speech at the Tokyo Game Show (thanks Kotaku) claiming that videogame prices are "too low" given that, according to Tsujimoto, development costs are now "100 times" higher than during the Famicon era. "There is also a need to raise wages," he added. "Considering the fact that wages are rising in the industry as a whole, I think raising unit prices is a healthy option for business.

Re: Grand Theft Auto 6 (TBD)

For games like GTA and Red Dead I would not argue they are worth more than the current asking price for games. But not all games in general.
