Grand Theft Auto V on next gen is more than just a port

As we reported earlier today, Grand Theft Auto V looks to be coming to both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 next generation consoles on October 28th.  While that release date is still a ways out, and the game has been out a significant amount of time on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the next generation version has generated quite a bit of hype.

With the reported price of the new version of Grand Theft Auto V to be $59.99, fans are going to want a significant upgrade and bonus content to make the purchase warranted.  While little has been announced as far as content upgrades go, it looks like, at least on the PlayStation 4, Rockstar is coming out swinging.

Thanks to a few screenshots and GIFs comparing the two games, the next generation of Grand Theft Auto V looks to be quite the expansion on the already gorgeous looking previous generation version of the game.  That PlayStation 4 has significantly enhanced capabilities in comparison to its predecessor, the PlayStation 3, and they appear to be on full display.

Obviously the Grand Theft Auto series has been one of the most awarded and clamored after franchises in all of gaming, and the continued advancements are no doubt why Rockstar continues to see such success.

While I would be one to still remain on the fence having beaten the previous generation on the game, some sort of advanced content is going to need to be available in order to warrant another purchase.  $120 into one game is a lot of money unless there is a vast difference between generations.
