New NYC GTA 5 Ad Forgets About The Xbox 360 version

Gameranx: "Rockstar has put together an ad for GTA 5 mentioning only the PS3, while foregoing mention of the Xbox 360." (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

PS3 is superior version, it's understandable

360 doesn't even lift bro, everyone knows that
SuperLupe  +   570d ago
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.

lol @ "forgot"
You don't forget such things when making a 20 meter long advertising banner.
HammadTheBeast  +   570d ago

Unlike CoD or BF4 timed DLC, Destiny has exclusive content. Not timed.
gaffyh  +   570d ago
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.
SilentNegotiator  +   570d ago

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.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   570d ago
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.

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 ..

Mainman  +   570d ago
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.

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.

"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
RedHawkX  +   570d ago
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.

Tito08  +   569d ago
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.
GenericNameHere  +   569d ago
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.

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...

Tito08  +   569d ago
@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.

Whats the big deal ? You see the same thing with 360 and Call It Doodie. Only question is will the 360 version be gimped on purpose by Rockstar like the PS3 version of COD is by the hacks over at Infinity Ward and Treyarch. And unlike them I think Rockstar still has a bit of pride left in what they do so the game should run fine on 360.

Rockstar are talented developers . Making Ps3 lead platform will mean great ps3 version and X360 will either get the same quality port or near it. But if you make X360 as a lead platform the ps3 most of the time get a bad port.

I for one never noticed the differences in multiplatforms between the consoles .
YodaCracker  +   570d ago
As Rockstar have already stated, there is no lead platform. Both versions are being developed simultaneously. No ports:

0pie  +   570d ago
Eh... its nothing new! It sometime happen when 2 company like rockstar and sony playstation make a deal between them.

I guess the deal must be something like ; sony pay a part of the advertisement of the game if they only publish playstation as the system on the ad.

If im right i think its the same thing with cod with xbox and it was the same thing for some of the assassin creed with playstation

this article is useless...

If I remember correctly GTA 4 had massively timed 360 DLC release. In fact it was so long before it came to PS3 it was almost obscene! A bit of an insult to all the PS3 fans who bought the game.

I don't like timed exclusives, DLC or preferred marketing. Just me. Yes it happens, but I don't like it!

They are also selling a GTA V branded Sony Pulse elite headset at the same time. Even better is that those who already have the Pulse Elite will be able to download the GTA V Sound Mode.

why is everyone moaning about which console is better.....end of the day you lot moaning about this ad should be thankful that its coming to both consoles.....either way its only going to play as good on the ps3 as it is on the xbox 360. tho i cant deny im well excited for GTA V's release!

Didn't anyone seen the run in GameStop? After the first big marketing push when the date slipped, came the full force marketing that had no mention of any platform other than PlayStation 3. Hell, even the blue aurora was all over the place. If one weren't in the know, it would be assumed that PS3 was the only place to get GTAV!

Couple that with the fact that GameStop will be carrying, exclusively, the GTAV Special Edition Pulse Elite Headset and BOOM!

I'd love to see it be a timed exclusive for the PS4. Sony can come out at GamesCom and announce the PS4's release date as 9/17/13!! Then they will roll a big 4 over top that 3 on the 20 foot banner. Now that would be great! While the franchise did start on PS1 and on PC, as far as gaming consoles are concerned, it's been a Sony exclusive all except for GTA4. So this would in fact be a triumphant move for Sony and GTA. Would be shocking on so many levels, it's guaranteed to steal all headlines. PS4 release date 9/17/13! GTAV on PS4 day and date!! This would be a move to top all moves....really does need to happen.

GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas all came out on the XBOX. Also I'd rather see a new Red Dead game on the next gen consoles instead of them porting GTA V to the PS4 and XBOX One.
