Yet another smart marketing decision of Rockstar Games and Sony for GTA V on PS3.
They really should ask Sony why they are not paying to advertise that its on Xbox as well. /s
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.
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...
Nothing to do with success in Taiwan, just with the sums of money changing hands - just like any other ad deal.
Asian Countries are dominated by the PS3. It's just that simple.
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?
"Yet Again GTA V Advertise As PS3 Exclusive, Now in Taiwan" Not surprising. Sony did the same thing in Europe with FIFA and Far Cry 3. Microsoft does the same thing with other games.
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 """ http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Thats a cool story brah.
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.
@midnight My god man get a life
wth? talk about off topic, stop trolling
Can't make your cake and eat it too... Sorry, Saints Row is on the better console this gen. It happens. Smashed.
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.
"Saints Row is on the better console this gen" ...really? Tell me more about a game that has nothing to do with this article. /s
Didn't your teacher teach you not to go off-topic in an essay? What does Saints Row has anything to do with GTA?
Over 7 years and you think people still care about this? And by the way. Guess what version of GTAV Rockstar is showing off: http://youtu.be/N-xHcvug3WI... PROTIP: Those are not Xbox buttons.
@midnight... 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.
Exactly. COD and Skyrim come to mind. There's a partnership between R* and Sony, of course they wouldn't advertise the 360 version.
Take-Two and Sony* Take2 own Rockstar, 2K games and Irrational games
has there been any gameplay shown on the 360 yet?
Nope. All of their gameplay stuff shows the PS3 version, IIRC.
Nope, not yet. Lead platform is the PS3, which is why its been used in the trailers.
Here confirming that your wrong ; http://www.rockstargames.co...
@ 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).
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.
This happens all the time for a majority of games. Not news. Definitely not "smart" either. Why ignore half the market?
"Definitely not "smart" either. Why ignore half the market?" I don't think anyone watched this or any trailer like this and thought "Darn! I thought GTA V was a multiplatform title." I mean, most people know and even if they didn't, I would have googled it to make sure. So all this really does is highlight what the individual system can do. It also implies that said console is the better of the two for said game, which is what they're going for. Like how Skyrim / CoD had early DLC and GTA V has the headset with the special audio option for GTA V.
because in those countries there are barely 10 360 owners
sony is doing so well, so i hope they can keep it up, because it ain't no telling what microsoft got planned.
Its a smart marketing move when its Sony, However when a game is marketed towards the xbox without mention of a playstation version, its evil and MS throwing money around to make it look as though its only on the xbox. Another fine example of the insane nature of the sony fanboys on this site.
When Microsoft advertises certain Xbox 360 games as exclusive despite being multiplatform, Xbots get a major hard-on. When Sony advertises certain multiplatform games as PS3 exclusives, Xbots go to N4G and immediately claim everyone on N4G is a Playstation fanboy's site. Another fine example of the insane and asinine and hypocritical nature of the Xbots on this site.
And your reply just affirms what I have said. Thank you
Well, Microsoft has to, the 360 has barely released any AAA exclusives for the last couple of years. lol
Affirms what? Lol I just copied your comment, and replaced PS fanboys with Xbots. I wasn't taking you seriously. Calm down. If I cared, I would have replied with an original comment.
Ummm Again Microsoft PAID companies to NOT show PS4 versions of games, just to keep up the confusion that they have more exclusives than they actually have...Sony on the other hand has never paid any company before E3 to pretend it's not a Multiplat.... There is a huge difference to there is a deal in place between 2 companies i.e. Rockstar and Sony on GTA, and just paying someone to pretend the other version doesn't exist
Dry your tears.
Same thing with Activision and call of duty. It's advertised as a 360 exclusive in NA.
Ummmm No it's not....Microsoft just feels the need to constantly show commercials and they tell you at the end of the commercial map packs available first on XBL. Which isn't advertising it as an exclusive
Umm NO. Most ads revolving about call of duty basically say ' Now available on Xbox 360" or something like "Pre order now for xbox360"
In these cases MS is most likely paying for the commercial. It benefits the publisher because it takes the load off them, and benefits MS because it makes their system more desirable. One could argue that spending that money on developing an exclusive game may be better for the long term, but it made sense last gen as MS was the underdog going in. No company is really immune from being shady in some of it's marketing. It doesn't really effect people like us because we're up to date, but it does change people's perceptions if the only place they get their gaming news is from TV.
playing MS at there own game LOL good for sony hahaha
This isn't being advertised as a PS3 exclusive any more than Call of Duty is advertised as an Xbox 360 one. It's a simple marketing deal. Nowhere on those ads does it say "exclusive" or "only on playstation". These kinds of deals are the norm these days.
Huzzah, someone talking sense.
Sony is buying the ads. The lead line of this article is full of fanboy agenda. (Why? Its not a "smart move" for two reasons, the first of which i already mentioned, and because its a multiplat and you want to sell as many copies as possible and not promote the gains of just one company. ) The title is deliberate misinformation (advertised as exclusive.) Front page as always. Fanboys cheering all the way.
Breaking news: popular game advertised on a console! Christ this happens all the time, this is nothing new. TV adverts, huge posters, it's all the same. You really should have better things to do.
"Yet another smart marketing decision of Rockstar Games and Sony ..." Had me wondering when the last smart marketing decision between Rockstar and Sony occurred? Then I read that this "smart" decision involved adverts on a bus in Tapei.... Doesn't take much to generate a "news item" nowadays.... What really matters to genuine gamers is: does one system have an edge on another when it comes to how well a particular game plays, including multiplayer....? Right now, no one can answer that question in regards to GTA5.
Funny cause 360 gets GTA online a week before PS3 users. Xbox should be advertising GTA Online exclusive for 360, at least for that week.
where did you read that made up bullshit. or just stop making up nonsense. Fool.
If your trying to stir up a flamewar, You just failed :P That's alright Sony :D
xbox advertises COD as an exclusive so much, I think there really are people who think that it is
Shut up complaints again? Rockstar own PS fan than u suck deal with Xbox!.
That made my brain feel weird reading it.
Read it in the voice of the Hulk,I find such comments go down easier that way. Smash.
I love how people complain whenever Microsoft does something like this yet praise Sony when they do. Ugh, come on gamers.
@miDnIghtEr20C_SfF the only games that appear to run better on the 360 are the 3rd party games and the reason for this is that MS have it in there legal agreement with 3rd party companies that when they make games they have to be as good or better than there competitors that is why they appear to be better where as sony do not do this they let companies do what they want and if you dont believe me then why is it that all first party games are WAY BETTER THAN ANY 360 FIRST PARTY GAMES now you have been SMASHED
"the only games that appear to run better on the 360 are the 3rd party games and the reason for this is that MS have it in there legal agreement with 3rd party companies that when they make games they have to be as good or better than there competitors that is why they appear to be better where as sony do not do this they let companies do what they want"
I really hope MS don't pay for 3rd Party companies for next gen?(Do you think it'll happen again?)
it's just an advertising deal made with the console maker. been happening for years. ms have done it many times and sony have done it many times. they're not technically claiming it's exclusive, they're just not telling people that it's also available on other formats. it's not a sony thing or an ms thing, hell, it's not even just a gaming thing. when tesco or asda advertise a product they're selling, say a new film, they don't tell you that it can also be bought at other supermarkets.
Sony need the exclusives? Ha ha
