Gameranx: "Rockstar has put together an ad for GTA 5 mentioning only the PS3, while foregoing mention of the Xbox 360."
"yolo" - that ad
PS3 is superior version, it's understandable
360 doesn't even lift bro, everyone knows that
Sony wrote a check for a publicity deal so its understandable. Just like they wrote a check for Destiny exclusived timed DLC and what have you.
Sweet. Where did you read that?
lol @ "forgot" You don't forget such things when making a 20 meter long advertising banner.
@SuperLup Unlike CoD or BF4 timed DLC, Destiny has exclusive content. Not timed.
This is pretty normal actually, just like on Ass Creed ads, they only mention PS3 for example. On a side note, that's a huge advert, never seen one that big in UK.
@zod Uhhh, the size of the banner would have nothing to do with someone's capacity to make a mistake. That said, it was probably just a placement funded by Sony.
Its obvious no other site picked this up... Except N4G. Its super obvious Sony have an exclusive deal with R* which means "not showing the other console" and you have comments like @Abzdine. You see posters like this relating to COD every year on Xbox. Your commeent makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. Care to explain what your comment means @Abzdine. Bet you bubbles he can't explain without sounding like a fanboy.
SuperLupe Never heard of a developer get paid for a lead platform . However , the advertisement and exclusive content are paid from sony which MS do too so i wouldn't make it a big deal right now ..
If the X360 isn't mentioned in the add, then Sony probably subsidized the add or something. This happens all the time btw. There are a bunch of adds on tv, banner's etc for multi-plat games that only mention a single platform. This is most likely due to the platform holder sponsoring the add instead of the publisher.
I'm glad they do it. All those XBox360 commercials. For COD, and The Elder Scrolls, the commercial always ends with "get it now on Xbox 360!" Leaving all other systems behind.
both versions will be fine and every one will enjoy a great game but i'm happy to see sony is doing good job at marketing games on ps3
yep seems like it lol.
Not sure which version is superrior but let me say this: a ton of times multiplatform games were just advertised for the xbox 360 while there was no mention of the PS3 version and no one really cared (in the gaming journalism world). Now that the tables turn it's suddenly unaccaptable and news worthy?? Give me a brake.
How could you possibly know that?
@ AngelicIceDiamond "Its obvious no other site picked this up... Except N4G." ............ Where N4G is using other sources for it's article's. Do you even know how N4G works o_0
shock horror... a company paying for the advertising and seeing as they are creating a bundle with a picture on the box, is it not obvious that some money changed hands for advertising??
@super - The destiny stuff is not timed, it's for the life of the game per the interview with bungie.
I detect a timed PS4 exclusive deal possibly in the works.
"PS3 is superior version, it's understandable " The 360 version of gta4 ran at a higher resolution and had better frame rates (then ps3 version). I'm just saying
ps3 is the superior version might as well start getting your titles on the ps3 so your trophies can transfer over to the also superior ps4. its best to get started now because xbox one is dead boy and girls. im gonna be playing the heck out of gta on the ps3 because playstation is where 3d open world gta started.
Nobody wants the 5 disc version :-)
360 Versipn is two discs, one for the game, one for installation...
^Show him who's boss! lol
lol two discs.It's been 8 years since i bought a DVD disc, let alone a 2-disc dvd set.
i still find it amusing that it's a thing... last time i bought a game with multiple discs was Final Fantasy IX in early 2000's... although do keep in mind that i haven't bought any pc games since....ever...? yeah, the latest pc game i got was Star Wars BFII and even that only had one disc haha
I don't see a problem with having an installation disc personally... The game will run off 1 disc after that horrifying 10 mins :/
Video Game remakes would like to have a word with you MR. Yolo.
How stupid are you guys are . Everytime you see a poster with only one console mention is because that console paid for the damn poster or commercial .This should be comment knowledge for everyone by now . I hate this kind of fanboys article .Gets stupider each time
"Stupider". Stupider. Huh.
Don't know what comments you are seeing, but just about everyone above you is posting with knowledge of the ad being sponsored by Sony. And your angry and poorly written post just made me chuckle.
don't be so naïve and you wouldn't get fanboys if you and everyone else just supported the better system the ps3 and the ps4. butttt nooooo you have to go full retard and lose bubbles and peace of mind because you want to be a fanboy. if you cant beat playstation then join playstation so you can relax and sleep at night lol. its the best system anyways so what is your problem with playstation for christe sake?
Check out: www.imdb.com Ad on top is for GTA V and only shows PS3. I think Sony have paid R* good money :D I know I'll be getting it on PS3.
WTF is comment knowledge? I'm winging it here but don't you mean common knowledge? Off ass my laughing...
oh no they didn't lol what you talking about willis? lol this is great news for inner fanboys but a normal thing in gaming now a days, just like COD,BF etc dlc exclusive for ms
Most likely PS3 exclusive stuff this time around.
I guess Rockstar prefer the PS3 then? This is absurdly strange...
Seriously? Not even. This is no different than the PS3 logo before every assassin's creed commercial on TV. Can't believe this can spawn an entire article now.
Exactly, there are so many commercials that only show the Xbox logo at the end. This isn't news.
The fanboys have a field day GTA 4 was advertised for the 360 shock horror, companies always have exclusive advertising going on like FIFA with the ps3 http://m.youtube.com/result...
Most like Sony may have paid for part of the ad. No different than all the multiplat game commercials that ended with the Xbox logo.
They honestly all prefer ps3, when I go to gamestop all I see is ps3 gta posters..the game was always played on a ps3 devkit so I guess. Mine is for xbox 360 though CANT WAIT!!
Yeah, no matter which system you choose for it, the game is going to be phenomenal!
Both my current gen boxes will retire to be "GTAV boxes"
(yes - that means purchasing the game twice - and again whenever another is announced - PC/NextGen)
Why the stupid title ?
Hmmm makes me wonder.does this mean ms may have struck a deal for an exclusive xbox one version? most likely we could see Gta5 for the xbox one...Its not too far fetched for ms and rockstar to pull off...they have done something similar in the past with exclusive content.all it takes is an office,lots of beer, cash and firm handshakes...just a thought...expecting to get hit with many disagrees..remember its just a thought..lol.
Wow, were you sober when writing this?
LMAO yeah that's exactly what I was thinking.
"all it takes is an office,lots of beer, cash and firm handshakes" what are you babbling about?
Yeah, you was right expecting disagrees with such a silly thought, I definitely bet MS would rather go after Rockstars next GTA for the X1 when already this one is coming out for current gen, and R* isn't that stupid to let MS have that when the PS4 is going to be there right around the corner as well as X1, so if you're expecting GTAV on X1, expect it on PS4 as well.
Hmm makes me wonder. There are no Microsoft signs here. Only PS3. Maybe Sony got a PS4 exclusive deal? You just need a room full of devs who are happy to tell you they are doing good with Sony, and possibly exchange hardware and game banter with the first-party Playstation devs like Naughty Dog and Sony Santa Monica...just a thought...expecting to get hit with many disagrees..remember its just a thought..lol. /s
@zod 18 & trenso 1 -
sober? babbling? you guys seem to be so anti xbox ..I guess it was really to be expected after all its n4g..and to think if a similar comment stating sony would be getting a ps4 version exclusive would have had lots of agrees to it. ..N4G .smh
I guess we will just have to wait and see then...
No you were just babbling I would have said the same thing to that same line i quoted even if you were talking about the PS3/4. So don't just pin everything on being anti anything when people don't like or agree with what you say.
Dude do i work for sony or ms?how am i to know if there is actually a deal of sort?i was only trying to be funny and stating something that crossed my mind.damn everyone here is so uptight .no probs bro.its all good.
That's because they know the 360 version will sell anyway....lol
Disagrees for the truth. As a neutral gamer, even I know it sold better on Xbox 360
Lmao...here it doesn't matter.some people have their hands by default on disagree.
X360 sold better because.. DUH.. it was timed exclusive.
Two disks and mandatory installs for the Xbox version.
@PSVita - The PS3 version also has a mandatory install of the same size. Both versions only use one disc to play the actual game.
only by 500k, and that's with the timed dlc. i bought it on PS3 and happily waited for it to arrive on the system lol.
@MassEffect23- Actually the episodes were time exclusive on 360, not GTAIV. @YodaCracker- True, but the difference in GTAV is both game and install are on one disc on PS3 while 360 version has a disc served for the install, while the other is for the game, so basically without that installation disc being inserted first, the other disc is totally useless, after installation is where you don't have to use the installation disc as long as it's installed onto the HDD.
neutral gamers don't have 3 bubbles they have 5 because they know not to be dumb and support crap xbox 360 and xbox one because of how ms trys to screw everyone over all the time lol.
Please buy it on the Playstation....
Any perticular reason why?
Because he asked nicely?
because i dont like pulling out after install....or at all :)
