If you’re a Grand Theft Auto V player on PC, you’ve currently got the ability to edit together your own mini-movies by setting up and recording in-game footage. Soon, however, those tools will also be in the hands of console players.
As part of the latest “Asked and Answered” feature on the official Rockstar Blog, the team announced that the Rockstar Editor?the toolset used to let players dip their toes into the world of virtual movie direction?will soon be coming to the new crop of consoles. The reason they weren’t available before? The lack of system power.
“The Rockstar Editor is an advanced tool requiring additional processing power so it would not be compatible with GTAV on the older systems, but we are currently working on a version tailored for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles ? and we hope to release that sometime this summer, or as soon as it is ready,” the blog post answered when asked if the tools would ever come to consoles.
While some console games have offered such features built-in, these kind of advanced non-gaming options are often left to the domain of the personal computer. So, it’s nice to see that that could be changing.
