I think they'll delay it further and make it a launch title for PS4 and the next Xbox, if it comes out then.
The protagonists are nice, Michael feels like an elder Tommy Vercetti (who is my favourite). Franklin kinda reminds me of CJ. Trevor feels like a representation of what every GTA player does in between missions. He's the first protagonist who looks like he'd want to get a 6 star rating for fun. xD
They SHOULD make a PC version, honestly don't care about Wii U version, though.

A month late but what the cow.

They won't delay it for the PS4/Nextbox, it's a question of numbers really.  Remember this game has probably cost them ~100 million to make (GTA IV was that much, but I'm not sure if that includes RAGE development and other things) and currently the PS3 and 360 has a userbase of something around 140 million.  Well units sell, that's a rough number you could probably shave of a small fraction for second consoles/replacements whatever but it's still a massive, massive number compared to what, the couple of million the next-gen consoles may have the end of the year?  They need it to make money, and a lot of money.

PS3/360 are not going to be irrelevant when the next-gen comes out, they'll probably be profitable for a while yet - maybe not the extent the PS2 was (support only stopped fairly recently) so GTA V will have a shot at long healthy sales.   

however, I sort of believe they'll make a port to the next-gen consoles, GTA tends to have high sale life - Hell I still see copies of GTA IV being sold brand new and a next gen port would only help that.

don't worry about a PC version, that's is more than likely coming.

I heard new rumors that some Rockstar official said a PC version is unlikely.

And yeah, why would Rockstar want to release their magnum opus for an outdated console?

Rockstar haven't said anything official about a PC version other than 'its under consideration' they've always ported it to Pc starting with GTA 3 (1 and 2 being PC First games.)

Like I said, sales from a much higher userbase, They've been working on This game for 5 years they're going to want to make a profit and they'll get a higher one currently from this gen userbase than next gen which will only launch this year.
Rockstar do very good games, but realistically speaking, they have to make products profitable.

A Next Gen version may happen though after this GTA V launches after this gen.

Rockstar would be dumb as hell to not release this on PC

They'll probably end up building it up so that the game pushes the limits of the existing consoles, but still looks good enough so that it won't look already dated on the next generation.

That's something I'd agree with.

Maybe it'll be one of the first streaming games for PS4.

I bought it today. Traded in Resident Evil 5, Forza 3, MW3, Dead Island, Force Unleashed and NFS Undercover to raise some funds. Currently installing, although I don't understand why I HAVE to install it. Unless Rockstar are like EA and think that ALL gamers are pirates.

Maybe that's why there's no PC version yet. Although I'll probably end up getting it on PC. Think of the mod potential!

The game installs for better performance.  It's both able to stream from your disc and the HDD at the same time I believe, that and if you're playing a 360 you don't have to switch disc.

i have to say that it is a pretty damned quality game.
the gameplay look pretty sweet when compared to gta iv and the driving mechanics are definitely cooler not so detailed its annoying per se unless you count really crap rides annoying

+colour!!! its not all beige and grey and red!!!! lots of colour super good.

if i could fall into the sky, do you think time would pass me by?

If you look at Los Santos from a distance (from the end of the pier or from the countryside) the visuals look incredible, but in the actual city they're not much different from GTA IV.

Although the LA Noir style facial animations look great.
