You mean $250M spent on a game needs a large user base, and Xbone and PS4 are not guaranteeing enough sales to make it worth it? You have to think that these new consoles willsell though. Or are console sales decreasing these days?
I think it's pretty much guaranteed that GTA V will eventually be released on the next gen consoles, as well as the PC. Those ports can be easily developed on parallel since the architecture is similar. But a game this huge has to turn profit quickly, and so yea, a large user base is pretty much a requisite for that from the get-go.

And speculating how the next gen will turn profit for the studios at this point is something only Pachter would do. We all know the economy is still in the tank and video game sales have been in decline throughout 2013. Still, your guess is as good as anybodys...
