Yet Again GTA V Advertise As PS3 Exclusive, Now in Taiwan

Yet another smart marketing decision of Rockstar Games and Sony for GTA V on PS3.

The story is too old to be commented.

They really should ask Sony why they are not paying to advertise that its on Xbox as well.

cleft51762d ago

Well in eastern countries the 360 doesn't do so well so I can see why they aren't bothering with marketing for the 360 version in a lot of eastern countries. I think if you are in Taiwan and you own a 360 than you are up to date with what sort of games are going to be coming to the system.

It's a drop in the bucket anyway with what sales you get there.

DaCajun1762d ago (Edited 1762d ago )

Like we haven't seen tons of commercials on TV in the USA where 3rd party games show Xbox 360 only like it was exclusives and no mention of PS3. So what's wrong with PS doing it too finally.

Nationalism at its finest... Too bad we don't do the same here...

humbleopinion1761d ago

Nothing to do with success in Taiwan, just with the sums of money changing hands - just like any other ad deal.

UltimateMaster1761d ago

Asian Countries are dominated by the PS3.
It's just that simple.

DonFreezer1761d ago

Well in eastern countries Sony pays the developers money to advertise the game as a ps exclusive. Why is it so hard to speak about the truth once?

Not surprising. Sony did the same thing in Europe with FIFA and Far Cry 3. Microsoft does the same thing with other games.

TheGrimReaper00111762d ago

I hear that
I know some people who think COD is exclusive to xbox

It's probably going to be the same where Saints Row is better on the 360 than PS3 anyways. Just like most games this gen. Just like how Saints Row dominates on 360 over PS3.

"""PS3 has 960x720 resolution with QAA resulting in a soft look
Xbox 360 has native 720p along with 2x MSAA resulting in a far better IQ than PS3
The core artwork remains the same between both version of the game
Alpha buffers are rendered in a lower resolution on PS3
Xbox 360 has better AF and aggressive level of streaming compared to PS3
Game runs with unlocked frame rate and no vsync on both platforms
Cutscenes run with vsync engaged on both platforms
Xbox 360 version has the option to toggle Vsyn Off/On in Options menu

Games aren't advertised based on specs.

They use the best version's footage (unless they do "in engine" videos), but they don't just NOT LIST the others.

But I'm probably wasting my time explaining that, since your post reeks of intentionally off-topic trolling.

My god man get a life

dantesparda1762d ago

wth? talk about off topic, stop trolling

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF1762d ago

Can't make your cake and eat it too... Sorry, Saints Row is on the better console this gen. It happens.

JP13691762d ago

Why don't you also post their SR3 comparison? It's funny how you mention "most games" are better on 360, yet repetitiously provide a single example. I bet you're the smartest guy you know.

SilentNegotiator1762d ago (Edited 1762d ago )

"Saints Row is on the better console this gen"

...really? Tell me more about a game that has nothing to do with this article.


SSJBen1762d ago

Didn't your teacher teach you not to go off-topic in an essay?

What does Saints Row has anything to do with GTA?

ShinMaster1761d ago (Edited 1761d ago )

Over 7 years and you think people still care about this?

And by the way. Guess what version of GTAV Rockstar is showing off:
PROTIP: Those are not Xbox buttons.

NeloAnjelo1761d ago


And your point exactly? MS doesn't exist in Asia in any meaniful way. Plain and simple.

They aren't advertising this is PS3 exclusive. They just aren't advertising it's also on 360. Microsoft does this all the time with commercials.

I mean, when you look at an Xbox magazine, do they say the games are also coming to Playstation? No, and vice versa for Playstation magazines.

Well, I have seen many Tv ads only showing the 360 logo for multiplat games. It happens often, I don't think it deserves an entire article.

ABeastNamedTariq1762d ago

Exactly. COD and Skyrim come to mind.

There's a partnership between R* and Sony, of course they wouldn't advertise the 360 version.

PlayStation_41762d ago

Take-Two and Sony*

Take2 own Rockstar, 2K games and Irrational games

pyramidshead1762d ago

has there been any gameplay shown on the 360 yet?

ABeastNamedTariq1762d ago

Nope. All of their gameplay stuff shows the PS3 version, IIRC.

GarrusVakarian1762d ago

Nope, not yet. Lead platform is the PS3, which is why its been used in the trailers.

GarrusVakarian1761d ago

@ IHassounah

Regardless, there's a reason they chose PS3 footage for all trailers so far. So i will buy the PS3 version (and hopefully the PS4 version in the not too distant future).

ABeastNamedTariq1762d ago (Edited 1762d ago )

This is simply a marketing partnership between R* and Sony. Kind of like what MS does with COD and Bethesda games.

But one check on the MS website, Destiny and Watch Dogs are still being subliminally advertised as exclusives. They're right in the middle of their actual exclusives.
