I'm not going to delve too hard into this because, all in all, and on the scale of life issues, it doesn't really rank highly at all. But it is a bit of a headscratcher and I'd appreciate some brief advice.
Approximately three months ago, my house was broken into and someone stole my Xbox 360, a small stack of games, and two iMacs. Insurance will cover the replacement, so long as said replacement is in the same category as the original item.
So I can replace my game console (I'll get about 300-ish dollars, plus another 100 for the controllers stolen, plus some for the four or five games). I have two years to cash in and do this, so there isn't a rush.
Here's the thing: While I love all games, from Skyrim to Halo 4, I really really really love Grand Theft Auto and have been looking forward to the new one for quite some time. But the theft of my console has put me in a bit of a pickle.
Fiscally, it makes sense to wait a few months and use the replacement money toward either the Xbox One or the PS4. But apparently GTA 5 isn't coming to next-gen consoles at all and will only be current-gen?
Do you guys know at all if Rockstar will release at least a version that can be played on next-gen consoles? And also: Do you think GTA 5 will be downloadable? I know when my console was stolen, a lot of games were being placed on Games on Demand on the 360; is that now at the level where they'll post a new release that can be downloaded the day the physical copy of the game is released? I ask because my friend has an old fucked up 360 with a completely bonked out disc drive, but it can run other than that. So I figure I could always download it and circumvent the disc tray issue completely, if you guys don't think it will be released on next gen at all and if it will be downloadable in the first place.
I hate you and you hate me.
