I would doubt it too. What might be more likely is GTA3/VC/SA to become available to download on Xbox Originals.

The way I see it, Microsoft wants Xbox to be the home of Grand Theft Auto. They want people to think, "Oh, GTA? That Xbox game?" That's why they're going out of their way for the downloadable content and what not, so I think they'd be willing to spend some big cash to get everything Sony gets and more. I'd expect those three games to be Xbox Originals as well.


How could they be considered XBox originals if they were never originally on the XBox??? If they came to the Market Place or whatever on XBox Live! then they still couldn't be considered XBox originals because it didn't go to the XBox until 10 years or so after they were originally released.

I think Sony payed Rockstar money to have Grand Theft Auto on the PSOne so I think they're partially owned by Sony, in a way, not really though. The originals are basically Sony's territory.

I think you missed something, that comment about the games coming to Xbox Originals was regarding GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas -- all of which have been released on the Xbox.

But you're forgetting something, aren't the first two GTA games also out on PC? And the games aren't Sony's property by any means, Rockstar owns them and can do as they please with them. Now if Sony has some sort of contract (which I doubt seeing as how III-IV have all been on the Xbox) then that's a different story.

The way I see it, GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas will all be released on Xbox Originals before GTA IV hits stores. I also think that GTA and GTA II will be out on both the PSN and Xbox Live Arcade before GTA IV is released. But whatever, time will tell I suppose. It can't be much longer before they make some sort of announcement regarding this, right?

If I remember correctly, Sony did own the rights to the GTA's for at least six months.

True, but is this still in affect? GTA IV is being released at the same time on both, so wouldn't you consider Sony's exclusivity to be gone? :/

Yeah...they were on the PC...not the XBox...

"The games aren't Sony's property by any means"...sort of like the downloadable content?

What is this "XBox Originals"??? If they're what I think they are...then can't they only consider San Andreas an original since GTAIII and Vice City came out on the PS2 before the XBox?

If they were going to XBox Live! as well...don't you think they would have announced that already??? This seems like the same thing as when we first heard about the downloadable content for the 360.

Most likely not, but maybe for the classics? Not sure if they'd spend their money on it though.

Xbox Originals are the Xbox 1 games downloadable from Xbox Live. They have Indigop Prophecy, Halo, etc.

I highly doubt GTA 3, VC, and SA will make their way to Xbox live. And they can't be consider Xbox originals since they appeared on the PS2 first.

After reading more about Xbox Original I get it now. >.<

It still doesn't look like its going to happen anytime soon. R* giving MS all the fun isn't a good idea.

It does. But seeing how slow Microsoft releases games over Xbox Originals, I doubt we'll be seeing GTA III-SA anytime soon.

As for releasing the classic GTAs over PSN/XBL, hell no. We can get them for free right now.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

You make some good points there, I see what your saying now. I've always thought of the GTA games to be Sony's though, and I think a lot of other people have too. I guess it is possible it can change.

Me too, but it seems to be changing to me.

Sony gained Rockstar's respect by staying loyal to them and thats now changing because Microsoft is just bribing Rockstar into their own hands. Disgraceful.

I hate all this Rivalry between consoles.

Nothing to see here, move along
