  Rockstar Games to be Exclusive to PS3 Only (After GTA IV) - Official News
  Posted by: Danny on 08-21-2007 @ 07:58
This News Item has been viewed 13,877 times
It seems that all of the Rockstar Games including the GTA Series will be exclusive to the Sony Playstation 3 only, but GTA IV will still come out on the XBOX 360, but any other GTA Games if they come out will only come out on the PS3 and nothing else according to this link (if its accurate). This might also mean there could be no more GTA games for the PC, at all in the near future. The news is about 3 weeks old however.

Game titles drive console sales, and exclusive titles can of course turbocharge those sales. That's why the PlayStation 3 community is buzzing about a new deal in which the PlayStation 3 will have an exclusive to the "next great franchise" from the hit-making studios of Rockstar Games.

Rockstar is the company behind the blockbuster hit Grand Theft Auto (GTA), among other titles. Sony is promoting the fact that the collaboration with Rockstar will emphasize the PS3's uniqueness. "Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of Cell and Blu-ray disc," wrote Sony's Michael Shorrock on the PlayStation blog. This deal will do that, he added.

Rockstar Games, the folks behind the Grand Theft Auto series, have announced to be working on its "next great franchise, which will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 3 console. No details were offered on just what that franchise might be, though.

Sony says that the title being developed isn't L.A. Noire, another PlayStation 3 exclusive that Rockstar is expected to release sometime next year. On the official PlayStation blog, Director of Third Party Relations, Michael Shorrock, said:

"Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of CELL and Blu-ray disc and this deal lets them do just that.. This is really a win-win situation for both companies.

It does say after GTA IV, so at least that will be on the XBOX 360 since its released on the same day as the PS3 version but there hasn't been any news of a PC version (I'm still hoping for one)

Grand Theft Auto IV had better be the best game I've ever played if it's going to be the last Rockstar Games production for the PC.

Resident Evil on the Gamecube is actually better than the PS2 version though smile, apparently has better frame rates (although the PS2 version has some more features as it was released later)

Wouldn't the Xbox360 and PS3 versions of GTA IV be almost exactly the same in terms of graphics quality though since they are making the game for both consoles at the same time?, and these consoles are fairly similar in the terms of graphics capabilty (fan boy comments for both sides don't count stick out tongue - not that i'm calling anyone here a fan boy / girl though wink)

What a way to nail your own coffin shut. Sony is pulling at straws to get an old buddy to pull them out of deep water. The PS3 is getting beaten in sales by the Gameboy advance.. only could game was Resistance.. everything else was an Xbox 360 port.


Rockstar, you just limited yourself a whole lot.

Well, if that gonna happen (i don't believe it will,but whatever), it would be a great mistake from R*. I have a very strong feeling it's only about marketing purposes, like Halo was only for XBox, like older GTAs exclusive to consoles, like MANY games with an exclusivity... for just a couple of months after their release smile Have faith big grin

This news isn't correct, what I heard is that R* is working on a game that will be PS3 only.

I highly doubt that. They ain't gonna sell a ton on the PS3 since it kinda sucks and is really hard to work with. GTA V will definetely not be PS3 exclusive.
