E3 2014: Grand Theft Auto V Hijacks a Slot in PS4's Lineup

Posted by Sammy Barker

Welcome back to Los Santos

After an outrageously dull monologue from new SCEA chief Shawn Layden, the platform holder pulled its E3 press conference back on track this evening by confirming that Grand Theft Auto V will be launching on the PlayStation 4 later this year. The firm announced the news by revealing a new trailer, showing the release in all of its lovely next-gen glory.

While the title has been rumoured for a while, the Japanese giant added that it will allow PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 owners to import their saves, meaning that those eager to jump sides will not lose a moment’s progress. You can check out the release’s trailer in the space below. Will you double dip on this classic? Let us know in the comments section below.

The only negative about this announcement is it kind of looked like it was fallout in the beginning.

But the transfer saves from ps3 AND Xbox 360 is pretty huge.

It was pretty smooth of them to allow the 360 save transfer. I was a little surprised by it.

Kinda pointless. Alreadt bought and completed on the 360. Unless its got some spectacular bells and whistles and its dirt cheap. Most people have already bought this game once.

It'll do great numbers again though. Same with TLoU and the Master Chief Collection. They're all re-releases and I'm not a huge fan of that, but all will sell.

@Gamer83. Ahh but tlou was a ps exclusive. So New converts will be buying that. The halo collection is a ccollection of different games on one disc . Gta was released less tHan a year ago. If there nothing greatly new to it the average gamer isnt going to shell out much money for the exact same game they still own on previous gen. Especially considering theres lots of new games starting to get released now

I'm loving all of these rereleases. As someone who only had the Wii last generation I'm hoping for more of em!

Just when you thought the conference was going downhill, Sony activates their trap card. A good chunk of PS4 owners were 360-only players so the file transfer is a good move.

I already completed it on the 360 so I doubt I'll double dip.

I'll grab this is they have an "upgrade" program for PS3/360 owners otherwise I doubt I'll pay full price for it again no matter how good it looks...
