I read about this on another site although not confirmed so don't flip out yet sony fans :D but if this does happen another blow to ps3 sadly...


The very next day on G4TV, Peter Moore sat down with Kevin Pereira for a shocking announcment. This is the one that would cause al the controversy! In the interview, Moore revealed that just prior the the interview he was doing, he signed a contract of exclusivity, and that GTA IV was now "Only on XBOX 360". Kevin asked Moore how he managed to steal away such a huge title from Sony. Moore stated that Rockstar were "smart businessmen" and that they "knew what they were doing".

After E3, no one was talking. Rockstar, Take-Two, Sony, Microsoft...nobody. Until Sony makes a statement that would almost collaborate what was happening behind the scenes. Sony co-CEO Jack Tretton commented in an interview about the deal, saying the following:

"There's no question that having the Grand Theft Auto franchise helped us a lot and helped us sell some units, but I don't think the battle would be any different with or without Grand Theft Auto.

If you look at our first-party library and the franchises that we've brought to market over the course of PlayStation 2, we have a very formidable first-party library of exclusive software that will help define us."

In other words, Sony claims they don't need GTA.

The PS3 logo on the bottom of the official site (http://www.rockstargames.com/grandtheftauto4/) is all the confirmation I need that this is false until otherwise proven.

Well it hasn't happened yet because microsoft hasn't taken over take 2 this is saying if microsoft does then it will take gta and make it exclusive. I never said it was true but it has a good chance of happeneing.

P.S I am a sony fan so I am hoping it doesn't happen but ps3 seems to be losing exclusives alot lately.

I think he generally means stuff like Assassin's Creed and GTA4. Those are the only I can think of.

Microsoft taking over Take 2? Is this speculation based on anything grounded? That would be huge.

Its atm speculation I think because like article states Take 2 is losing money even with gta sales so they will either need to join with somebody or sell company. Microsoft would jump at it though for thier titles.

Why wouldn't Sony jump on it?

If you read sony flat out said with or without grand theft auto we will do fine. Microsoft wants gta to sell systems sony doesn't really care.

Anyways gta4 will most likely be ps3 I agree but after gta4 if take2 doesnt start making money I see company selling.

Anyways I know just as much as you guys basically nothing. I just seen article and posted.

It doesn't mean Sony wouldn't jump on buying Take 2.

Sony is right with what they said. If GTA 3 wasn't an exclusive for a brief period of time they still would of sold plenty of systems.

GTA is my favorite game for Playstation, if there isn't going to be a GTA4 for PS3 I may rethink making the purchase.

Well, I absolutely hate playing sports games on PS2. I grew up playing Nintendo almost exclusively and I hate the glitches and jumps in the action on PS2. I can handle the loading times, but when I am in the middle of a game and it hiccups on me, I want to throw the controller through the TV.

:wink:

Even if you don't like the game, can't you tell the fact that the game is amazing?

I hate FPSes however I can see why people love Halo, that is a well made game.
