Xbox will "own" GTA IV launch, says MS (GTA IV Coming To N-Gage Before PS3/360)
 

 
Friday 8-Feb-2008 11:08 AM "Xbox 360 is still going to have the ultimate experience for GTAIV," says Microsoft's Shane Kim,

Microsoft will make sure that the Xbox 360 benefits most from the GTA IV launch, and from a content standpoint it "already owns it", says Microsoft Game Studios boss Shane Kim.

Speaking to US magazine

 Wired at the DICE summit, the Microsoft games boss said that making sure it owns the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV from a platform perspective "is really important."

"We already own it, I believe, from a content standpoint, because we have the exclusive episodes," he said. "And so Xbox 360 is still going to have the ultimate experience for GTA IV.

"But we have to make sure the customers know that." Especially, he adds, "if you look back, again, to the role of GTA III and what that played in terms of PS2's development - in Europe as well, because it was huge in Europe.

"That's a great opportunity for us. We need to take advantage of it."

The Rockstar sequel is released on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on April 29, which Kim says is going to make Microsoft's job harder at hogging the GTA spotlight.

"You absolutely have to work harder," he said. "You just can't lose sight of the fact that Sony obviously has a lot of experience and brand equity in this market. And we're still relatively young."

In Europe, says Kim, Microsoft is competing against an "established Competitor". "[Sony has] good equity in Europe. As I've said this morning, they've done a good job in ingraining Sony into the fabric of people's lives, in a broader sense. And so that means you just have to work harder.

"Even though we've managed to do a good job in terms of getting the game day and date, people still, if you just let things roll, will a.ssociate Grand Theft Auto as a PlayStation franchise. Which means that we have to work really hard to make people understand that no, it's not, and that you'll actually get a greater experience on Xbox 360."

So, lets have a row then. Which version are you buying? And will it take 22 minutes to install GTA on PS3?

I said this months ago. MS & Rockstar will market GTA IV so heavily as a 360 exclusive that people will probably think its not available on the PS3.

Jann that ain't happening, GTA and Playstation go hand and hand, so people will get on ps3 regardless of the ADs.


I said it before, this will be a Madden/COD4/AC situation where both consoles get great sales but 360 gets greater sales due to more people already having a 360 since 2005.

All it matters though is that game will be out for both fanboys of the companies acting like GTA is made by their fav console company.

btw when is the PC version coming?, I will get it for that also.

PS3 fasho i don't care about extra content they waisted 50mil to try and make it better like when the re-released san andreas without the hot coffee mod and added a new mission plus i like to see people make an a.ss of themselves and i'm pretty sure rockstar is not gonna fu*k sony like that so i expect exclusive content later on for PS3 version via the playstation store without the 50mil and if that doesn't happen PS3 is still getting rockstars new IP exclusively leading me to my point of XBOX paying 50mil for extra content in a multiplatform game and sony paying nothing for an exclusive new IP = owned. and you know rockstar always brings it.

The question is wether the 360 will be able to play it well, or will it be like Oblivion, with screen lockups and expected problems. The extra content might sway me to get the 360 version if the gameplay doesnt suffer. I'll just wait for the reviews and then choose.

From what I've read PS3 version will have its own extra content as well, so I don't really think it matters

nope, not until the 360 version is finished with what its getting. MS will spin it and make it clear that the FULL version of GTA is only on the 360. (Im not saying this but this is what MS will spin it into)

The marketing campaign will indeed make sony fanboys sick because they will spin around there words and make it seem like whoever buys GTA on the PS3 is a idiot.
