GTAIV's Exclusivity

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 01:56 PM MDT | By Kodo
Thanks to Slim Trashman for reporting this IGN article concerning Sony's response to GTAIV not being exclusive to the PS3. Phil Harrison responds to questions about PS3 third-party exclusives and how GTAIV will be simultaneously released on the PS3 and Xbox 360. He is quoting saying,
"I don't think PS3 has the install base to support Rockstar's investment in GTA IV on its own"

When elaborated, it means that Rockstar would spend a lot of money and development time creating the first GTA game on these next-gen consoles, and would not sell enough copies on the PS3 alone. Harrison was not worried about losing the GTA exclusivity because he knows that in time, as more people buy PS3s, that Sony will be able to afford major third-party exclusive titles.

Holy #%$@ it's Kodo! :D

Well anyway, at least Phil is being honest here. Maybe they'll be able to get the next GTA game as a timed exclusive.

Not necessarily something I'm upset about, both consoles are great. They deserve GTA IV.
