A significant portion of Grand Theft Auto (GTA) players are PlayStation users, but a recent report reveals that many do not possess a system capable of running the upcoming GTA 6. Set to release in Fall 2025, GTA 6 will be available exclusively on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, with expectations of compatibility with the rumoured PS5 Pro.

Sony's Insights on PlayStation Users

According to video game journalist Stephen Totilo, Sony has shared new insights regarding their consoles. Currently, the PlayStation 5, which is in the latter half of its lifecycle, has sold 59 million units. However, with 118 million monthly active PlayStation users, half of them are still on the PlayStation 4, which cannot support GTA 6.

Potential Impact of the PS5 Pro

The PS5 Pro has yet to be officially announced by Sony, but leaked specifications suggest it could provide better gameplay experiences for titles like GTA 6.

Additionally, a survey indicates that about 49% of gamers in the UK are unlikely to purchase GTA 6, highlighting potential market challenges for Rockstar Games.
