Jordan at GTAPlanet did a good job of analyzing an easily misinterpreted quote from a representative at Rockstar in an article of PLAY magazine, a Playstation-oriented magazine.

QUOTE
"The game [GTA IV]is both PS3 and 360, but Rockstar has suggested that all further game development is going to be PS3 exclusive."


I italicized "game development" because the term is very obtusely vague and could mean any new franchise they are building. Remember the ho-hum about a new franchise being made by the team to be developed for the PS3? That could be what they are implying to. However, a simple gaff of words can't really account as to why a representative would say such a thing. Unfortunately though, I haven't found the article to which this was published so the context of this quote is a little misleading on it's own. It's considerably illogical from a business standpoint to take a AAA title and have it just be on a platform that is just starting to grow.

I have decided to post this so we can qwell any console hysteria perpetuated by some of the slower members of the community. As of now, this little quote is very unsubstantiated and for all we know may of been an editorial goof by the magazine.

Also, please be courteous and keep your console warrior/fanboy tripe to yourself in the comments. Thank You.

Unlike the mainstream forums, we're gritty, crazy sociopaths. And still approved by Rockstar. Most GTA Sites cater to a younger, softer audience (Zidane?), as opposed to this forum, which caters to bi-polar grandmothers with too many cats (Pyro?).

Of course exclusivity promotes an influx in sales of a particular console but the variable in this instance is the user base already established for the Xbox. On a developer standpoint, shafting over a million consumers would no doubt take a hit in revenue. Why chance on something as the PS3 when it's userbase is just starting to gain ground?


Yes, but with PS3 sales increases, cost of production decreasing, positive media attention (IE the "Year of the Playstation" on MSNBC.com), BluRay winning out over HD-DVD, and PS3 sales picking up pace, the momentem appears to be on Sony' side...

I've found it's impossible to be more human than human. Inhuman, however, is easy.

Im looking forward to the year of the playstation 3 as long as GTA 4 isn't as bad (Framrate) in comparison as Skate was on the 360 then im very happy indeed.


P.S Skate on the 360 was a lot smoother than Skate on the PS3

Although this sig is a direct copy of bOnEs's sig i made it in tribute of his sig, as i liked it so much and wanted one of my own. Plus he already knows i was making a sig to imitate his one. Standard.
