It almost seemed like a fantastical rumour at first, but today it was confirmed by Rockstar Games that GTA V will have first person perspective included in the PS4 and Xbox One versions releasing on November 18th. This will be a huge departure for the franchise which last changed player perspective moving from the top-down GTA 2 to the third-person GTA III which has been the staple ever since. Whether or not this is going to be something that sticks around in future games is yet to be seen, but it probably gives players on last-gen consoles another reason to pick it up again to play on Xbox One and PS4.
