First, an official Sony Twitter account let it slip that "Grand Theft Auto 5" will be coming to the PS4. Now, some intrepid souls have discovered code within "GTA 5" that could be proof that "GTA 5" for PS4 is surely on the way, according to Gotta Be Mobile.
Check out an image of the alleged "GTA 5" for PS4 code below.
Note the text that says "Orbis." Why is that significant? Well, Orbis is a code name for the PS4's operating system. Does that certainly mean that "GTA 5" is being made for the PS4? It certainly looks that one, though we must caution that the code could always be bogus, put together by someone who just wanted to make some news. However, the fact that Sony's official Twitter account publicly acknowledged a PS4 version of "GTA 5," only to retract the statement as a "typo" lends credence to this alleged code.
Whether the code and the tweet let news of "GTA 5" for PS4 slip or not, it seems like a foregone conclusion that the game will one way or another find itself on PS4, Xbox One and PC eventually considering the sheer amount of dollars that releases on those platforms would generate for all parties involved. Regarding a "GTA 5" for PC release, we spotted this image and were told that it was snapped in a store in Australia recently. What's more, the German version of Amazon has a page up for the PC version of "GTA 5," though it lacks any references to Windows 8.
What do you think? Do you think that PC and PS4 versions of "GTA 5" are on the horizon? Do you think the "GTA 5" for PS4 Orbis code is legitimate? Why or why not? Sound off in the comments below.
