Well this would be a megaton. Rumors are starting to circulate that GTA V will be a PS3 exclusive since Rockstar wants to include every map from previous Grand Theft Auto games for an epic MMO component. Apparently Rockstar feels that with the PS3 install base at 16million+ and growing even stronger, along with the PS3 blu-ray advantage for massive content storage, they would benefit from focusing solely on the PS3. Well perhaps this is the Rockstar exclusive that has been conformed to exist!

Washington (dbTechno) - According to reports, all future games from Rockstar beyond Grand Theft Auto IV will be exclusive to the PS3. GTA IV is slated to release in April on the Xbox 360 and PS3, but that may be all the love Xbox 360 owners get from Rockstar.

They stated in a report in Play Magazine “The game is both PS3 and 360, but Rockstar has suggested that all further game development is going to be PS3 exclusive.”

This has led many to believe that Rockstar is planning to once again be an exclusive developer for the Sony camp with all future games.

This is still a rumor at this point, but it is definitely something to take under consideration.

Rockstar putting out the past Grand Theft Auto releases on the PS2 gave the Sony console a huge advantage over the original Xbox console.

This has also led some to speculate that Sony has put together another deal with Rockstar to get all future Grand Theft Auto titles exclusive to the PS3, much like they had with the PS2.

Only time will tell, but it is interesting to say the least.

omgomgomgomgomgomgomg.

Of course, this is likely a rumor due to the source, but I would shit my pants if this were true and figured I'd post it.
GTA V + Blu-ray + all maps = Best game ever created by mankind.

why would you post a year old article. The rumors have been going around for a while, but i highly doubt Rockstar and Take two would be willing to cut their potential sales by HALF, even if it was to make a superior game.

lolololololol. My badd.

We all know the word exclusive means nothing in gaming terms, Vice City and San Andreas were both PS2 exclusives - for about 6 months. It would be nice to see all the cities in their revamped next-gen form all together, but it would take years to develop and research, and to maintain a healthy profit margin R* have to release games consistently. Perhaps in a few years when all the next-gen GTAs have been released on PC some uber fanboy can release a mod with all the cities in it. It'd be a bugger to load though.

Agreed with ViceMan, more then likely all it means is that they are going back to how they used to do things. Release on Sony's console first then 6 months or so down the road a Xbox version is released. BTW Vice, making the cities is actually one of the easier parts to do when they already finished their formula, the predictable sense they will be reusing GTAIV formula... It's just a matter of what they want to do now.

You should have posted this like a year ago Analog, o well good conversation anyways. tongue.gif

True I suppose, if R* did reuse their old cities they would've already done a lot of the work beforehand, photographing the real life cities, absorbing the local culture (or lack thereof) and such. But if these new cities are anywhere near the scale of LC or even larger, I think it would take a bit of time to get the layout right, everything has to be meticulously tweaked and retweaked to mesh together and form the city as a whole, if one small aspect of it is out of place the whole thing loses it's credibility.


IMO anyway.

I thought it was an update of a year old article until it said "GTA IV is slated to release in April". Now I am just disappointed in the OP.
TheAnalogKid2112
For the record, I don't care if it's exclusive or not. I think exclusives are extremely selfish for consoles to do. The more, the merrier.
I just quoted the article. I got the thing doing a Google search. I didn't look at the date. I should have wore flame retardent.

PS3 would have the advantage as far as making the game huge but I think R* will always go multi-platform so they can make twice as much money.

Unfortunately i'd have to agree, any company would choose profits over scope, even R*. Can't say I blame them though.
BioSphere
It wont be a ps3 exclusive. They can make multiple discs for the 360 version if it wont fit on it's discs. but you never know. They made Lost and the damned a 360 exclusive but they were paid for it. I bet if sony paid them enough they would make the next gta a ps3 exlusive. but it wont happen.

I wouldn't want every map from previous gta's. it wouldnt make sense. but it would be kinda cool to have to fly to Vice city for a misson and fly back to do other ones. Its pretty much never gonna happen.

Well I suppose I should have said that the task of making the game in general will be much easier now. Most Dev's usually make tools to make things easier, given they are going to be using the same tools and formula (Maturing the tech as they go), I would think the task of making the cities better and larger would be much easier. Involving themselves in the culture of the city's and getting photo's ect... Shouldn't take very long.

I disagree actually, the only way they would make it multi disk is if they managed to save space by putting online aspects of the game on it's own disk, city and all. Otherwise it would be to big of an annoyance. What they will probably do is just keep to the guidelines of the 360 instead of spending time and money on fitting it onto multiple 360 disks. However much data the 360 disks can hold will likely be the threshold of space GTA's use this generation.

I wouldn't be surprised if they came to a compromise of combining cities, for example they could do Miami (Vice City), and New Orleans ect. After all Liberty City this time wasn't completely based off New York, but most of it was. As for Rockstar being Paid off again... I bet we haven't seen the end of shady deals like that, which don't benefit gamers.

It sucks that you are right. I have heard many times that R* is working on a PS3 exclusive project and will push the limits of PS3. I believe they are talking about LA Noire which as it stands right now, IS PS3 exclusive.

Well there is good news however about it all. They can likely save large amounts of space this time because they know how to code the formula better now. I don't think it will be all that bad keeping to 360 limits. I however do wonder if San Andreas scope of content would be possible without dumbing down the 360 version. I am not entirely sure how much space they have to stretch. I believe it's around 2 gigabyte. Leaving 1 gig open I think to help it from getting damaged. So they probably can push to 1.5 gigs more of data on the 360 disk.

Yeah probably LA Noire, think they said it was a new franchise. Also heard that game has a big budget. Either way should be good.

It would be a stupid choice by Rockstar to do a exclusive. They would lose half of the money they made on GTA 4.
SirPsychoSexy
It would suck since I have a 360. Though I hope the DLC packs will come to both PS3 and PC aswell. This "Exclusive" thing is just stupid!
1UP
I don't think you guys should worry, the worse that will happen is that it becomes PS3 exclusive for about 6 months then comes to 360, somewhat like they did last generation. This isn't some small franchise, its always been for everyone but Nintendo. =)

I was reading somewhere that LA Noire is predicted to do to PS3 what GTA III did for PS2.


And the budget is fucking HUGE. Right now its at an estimated $100 million.

I did some reaserch on LA noire and some topics say its no longer ps3 exclusive because sony has stop funding it!!??
that phil harrison and the team bondi head wear hating on each other.
here is the source... http://www.lanoire.net

There is no confirmation on this (at least i don't think so) and the source is a year old and not so credible.

for the 360's DLC Microsoft had to pay a hell of a lot of money As a Ps3 owner i wish Sony would do the same

Any company with that much money to blow will, Microsoft is probably looking to create a monopoly in gaming as much as they can, right now they are the only ones that can do it, Sony is being very careful of what they do. This is why I keep saying Microsoft paying 50 million for exclusives like this is a horrible thing for all gamers, the lack of competition will dumb down games if one becomes far to popular, sort of like Intel and AMD processors, Intel has such a difference that they can charge twice the price and still make huge amounts of sales and dominate the market. All it does it hurt us the consumers.

Lots of rumors of that. If they are making a game thats really trying to push the PS3 the 360 wont be able to run it and have to have a dumbed down version. If that happend I really don't care if it does come for the 360. As long as the PS3 version isn't limited and it bees all it can be.

lets all pray this "almost orgasmic rumor" becomes reality ... why should potential to be best game ever be instantly erased by the low capabilities of ... xbox...

I smell a console war debate rapidly approaching.

As far as i'm concerned, no one knows what's planned for the next GTA, except the top execs at R*, although i'd imagine R* North would have dedicated a small team to do some field research for the next game while the rest of the team work on the next DLC and patches for the current version. All we can go on is speculation, the merest hint of some underlying context hidden between the lines in interviews with the developers, although they remain purposely ambiguous so as to keep us guessing. We read into it what we will, some people like to read between the lines and invent their own truths, make up their own ideals and envision their fantastical ideas of what the next game might be like.

(Although saying that, work on the next game has probably begun already.)

I hope I made myself clear and enunciated my points concisely. *cough*

Most people on here were thinking me posting interviews with Dan Houser was pointless. =\

I am betting they started work on the next GTA right after GTA IV launched last year in April, It would not take their whole team to make the DLC, if they did use the full team it wouldn't have taken 3 quarters of a year to make, or so that's what I think. tongue.gif

its just something ppl say 2 scare 360 owners,but i own 360,ps3 and pc,so im not bothered,but i do prefer the xbox.

Slightly off topic

OP - You do realise one of the main reasons Sony are using Blu-Ray is because the architechture of the programming of PS3 games is so difficult that they need the space avaliable on a Blu-Ray disk.

Take Metal Gear Solid 4 for example. Takes up nearly the whole disk? And why? The compression rate. And also because they seem to love using unprocessed sound.

Not a flame at PS3 or you. But just stating they it won't be possible to get all of the original games (with the RAGE engine) on one disk. If it was a downloadable add-on then its fine but then its not on a disk.

Its like when people say that they want to be able to explore every single building etc. If Rockstar wanted to make that possible the game world would be considerably smaller and also take longer to develop.

Anyway, it would be nice but its just not possible.

As for PS3 exclusivity. I very much doubt it. Rockstar's main purpose isnt for making the biggest game world possible, its for creating quasi-believable crime dramas set in a factional city. And they can do that on both consoles regardless of its hardware specs.

Look at me using big words lol.

Do YOU realize that your completely wrong?

From what I see, your saying because it's more difficult to code it takes up more space and that's why Sony used blue-ray? If so, that is one of the worse conclusions someone could draw, MGS4 was made that way on purpose, Hideo expressed how he fault compressing files, mainly audio takes away from the quality, and he was very right. It would seem your confused at how it works.

A good example is how GTA IV takes nearly the same amount of space on blue-ray as it does on HD DVD, because they didn't try a shady port and made the games separate, the PS3 version was slightly more stable, however such a small margin no one would notice, they were both identical with slight color variation.
