Earlier this week a few news articles were seen on numerous gaming websites about the next GTA for next-gen consoles being an 8 month exclusive for the PS3. Most of them being from fairly unknown websites, which already raised a few red flags. However as always a rumor like this should have a starting point and throughout the days I sniffed around the web to find it.

By the looks of it, it must have started between PS3 Updates and Gamer Andy. An editor called Clay was contacted by an unknown source about the next GTA for next-gen consoles (otherwise known as GTA4) being an 8 month exclusive for Sony's Playstation 3. He appeared to have said that both Sony and Take Two Interactive will announce this closely to Xbox 360's release.

That was October and two days ago he was contacted by one of the companies mentioned in the previous article (possibly Take 2) and they confirmed to him that it is in fact true. This comes as no surprise though as throughout the years Take Two and Sony had a good relationship when it came to Grand Theft Auto. GTA: San Andreas for instance was a 7 month exclusive for the Playstation 2.

So if you plan to buy yourself an Xbox 360 later this month, bear in mind that there is a big possibility you will have to wait a very long time after GTA's PS3 launch to play it on your 360. For now we'll just have to keep an eye on Take Two's press release page.

I also think that it will go to the PS3 first then the PC then the Xbox360. That is how it went with the PS2 to PC and Xbox. So GTA will always be for playstation.

Exactly! Which reminds me of the PS3's 2k x 1k resolution :drible:. It'll be interesting if this time round they will have to downgrade it for the PC. Or it can disspointing for some as it won't work on their PC.

*sigh*

No - GTA Vice City was the fourth game to come out with the title of "Grand Theft Auto", but was really only a sequel to GTA3, using the same 'engine' to work on, just a different city, storyline and a few modifications (such as bikes and helicopters). San Andreas was only an improvement on Vice City again, so those three games are known as the GTAIII Trilogy.

There is another GTA set to come out next year, which will be completely new (like gta3 was to gta2), running on a completely new engine, with completely new characters and locations - this is a new game, so it gets a new name, which we don't know yet, so we call this GTA4.

And not a single fuck was given that day.

1 thing that I have to add to that too is that the PS3 will have more power then the Xbox360, also because of that blue ray.

:nope: OH NO!!!
Anybody here wants the Next GTA (GTA4) to be in the PC? I do. I NEED IT.
Guess I better try to kindly-make my parents buy a PS3, or win a lottery.

If this is PS3 only, then I'm sure R* would lose quite a bit of income, as there are a lot of people using the XBox 360, or just on a PC.

I support the Brett Favre society of grey-beardness. Grow some stubble, and make that shit grey. Leave it that way. Forever. Retire from your job twice in eleven months.

I totally agree with Akuma...
But, if the PS3 is REALLY as/or more powerful to a Super Computer... Then Gamingworld is actually more important than science discoveries I would presume... :coolthumbup: Hooray for SONY!!!

The LAUNCH is PS3 exclusive. That's a given. It's obvious. The same way the past three games have gone((excluding LCS which isn't even on PS2)).

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

I just wish the :drool: system requirements are not too crazy, and that R* won't leave any mistakes on Porting the game from The Console to the PC.
