Any visual difference between the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Grand Theft Auto 5 will be "completely negligible", Rockstar has claimed, reassuring single-format console owners that players can "expect the same great gameplay experience" regardless of which version they pick up.

Discussing the differences between the two versions in a new Q&A, Rockstar explained that both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions had been "developed in tandem".

"Like all of our games, trust that we're committed to making sure Grand Theft Auto V looks and runs as great as possible regardless of whether you pick it up for PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360," said Rockstar, "and we are excited for fans on both platforms to experience Grand Theft Auto V this September.

"We expect any visual differences to be completely negligible."

There will be some minor differences, however. Though the game requires a mandatory installation on both platforms, the Xbox 360 version will ship on two discs. The PS3 version will ship on a single Blu-ray disc.

And Rockstar hasn't ruled out the possibility of GTA 5 appearing on Xbox One, PS4 or PC either.

"We don't have anything to share about the possibility of a next-gen or a PC platform release at this time and we are completely focused on delivering the best possible experience for the consoles people have right now," it said.

GTA 5 launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17, 2013.

Well the PC version of GTA IV released 8 months after its console release, and with the conversion to PC and the next-gen consoles, (assuming they haven't been developing it alongside the 360 & PS3 version) I'm betting it will be just short of a year before the release.

Either way I'm happy to wait, I'm just praying that if there is a PC version release, it won't be using Games For Windows Live UI

I would wait for next gen versions as long as it wasn't a year but if I end up buying it on 360 to only after get told its coming to One before Christmas I would be super pissed off, they need to decide now wether they are bringing it to next gen in the near future or not and to tell us instead of waiting till We've already paid for it and expect us to buy it again.
