I definitely do wonder, though, why they didn't wait a few months and make it a Xbone or PS4 exclusive.

Pure market share. 360 and PS3 combines is a ~150 million potential customers. GTA4 sold like 15 million in the first two months, IIRC? And you gotta figure Rockstar hopes to beat that number. They're sure putting the money into the game to beat it, anyway.

They wait a few months to make it next-gen exclusive, and they're looking at, what? Five million people at most? Sony and MS won't be able to put more product into the channels than that. So even if you assume that every single next-gen console customer buys a copy, they're missing out on 10 million sales.

Neither MS or Sony is going to pony up 600 million dollars to make it worth it for Rockstar. (Well, actually, MS might. In fact, I'm still surprised they haven't done so.)

I'm sure we'll see a next-gen version come out before March 2014.
