You’re probably drooling over the recent video, Chaina Meye by Hridoy Khan, made using Rockstar Editor on GTA 5. If you’ve got a console instead of PC, you’re probably heartbroken and somewhat jealous at your PC gamer friends solely for the movie making features.
Well, I’m here to let you know, in case you didn’t know already, that our days of frowned face are soon going to be over. Although we console players won’t have access to the wide range of mods that are available to PC gamers, the Rockstar Editor used for making movies on GTA 5 is soon heading our way.
Developer Rockstar confirmed this earlier this month that Rockstar Editor will be available this summer. They are currently working on it and an update to GTA 5 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will soon bring tears of joy to the console gamers.
Movie-making tool Rockstar Editor will be available only on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One — Rockstar
Sadly though, Rockstar said the hardware limitation of previous-gen consoles — PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 — make the good news limited to the current generation consoles only. What this means is while PS3 and Xbox 360 players will continue to receive various updates for GTA Online, the movie-making feature Rockstar Editor won’t be coming to them.
Rockstar admits that they knew there would come a point when the hardware limitation of the previous-gen consoles will force them to stop providing game updates to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. While that point hasn’t come yet, Rockstar Editor — something that’s not a core feature of the game — is the first major update for the current generation consoles that won’t make it to the previous generation.
I can tell that the bad side of the news has already brought tears to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players, but let’s look at the bright side, we didn’t expect the update to hit to the consoles in the first place, right? On the other hand, for those of us with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, let’s start counting the days!
What movie will you make when Rockstar Editor is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One? What console, if any, do you have? Let me know in the comments and let’s start writing scripts for own movies shot inside the vast world of GTA 5.
