It is understood that after the generational change, both console manufacturers and developers want us to play on the new hardware. This is what makes PlayStation 5 compatible with previous generation games, Xbox Series X/S, and all generations of Xbox. Of course, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will still be supported for a few more years, and there will be factors, but it looks like the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 have already been pushed to the ends for good. Another sign of this is the server cancellation of many popular Rockstar games in the near future.
Well, of course there is time to prepare: GTA Online (or GTA V), which was Rockstar’s most popular game in 2010, will no longer be supported on December 16, 2021 on PS3 and Xbox 360, so players can no longer access the online part of GTA V. Of course, the single player mode allows you to play without further ado from now on, and you can also download GTA V as many times as you want.
The same is true for the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of LA Noire and Max Payne 3, their servers and online-only services (such as the Rockstar Games Social Club) will be shutting down as early as September 16, but both can still be played for solo players. mode , and you can download them if you already have one of these platforms a couple of generations ago.
The bad news is that those who have GTA Online on PS3 or Xbox 360 will lose their character and development after December 16 as they won’t be able to transfer them to PS4/PS5 or Xbox One/Xbox Series X/S. Likewise, related Shark cards cannot be redeemed It can already be purchased, and cannot be ported to newer generation devices. (Source: rock star)
Originally, Sony was about to launch the PlayStation Store in general on the PS3 and Vita, but it has pardoned users in this area as it saw high demand (and anger) on their part. How it will result from Rockstar’s angry decision, and whether it will affect the fate of GTA Online, is still in question. However, it’s not about GTA V, so the online part will also be officially released in a renewed format for PS5 and Xbox Series X/S on November 11 this year.
