Eurogamer Interview: Take-Two's Ben Feder on GTA IV, Agent and more

Eurogamer writes: "You won't find too many exec interviews on Eurogamer - we usually leave that sort of thing to our friends over at GamesIndustry.biz. But we got the opportunity to speak to Ben Feder, CEO of Take-Two, at E3 this year. Seeing as he's a big deal, and his company publishes one of the most successful videogame franchises ever, we thought we'd give it a go. Read on to find out Feder's opinion of Jack Thompson, whether he thinks there's a line to be drawn with violence in games and what day GTA V is out. Maybe not the last one." (Grand Theft Auto IV, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, PC, PS3, The Agent, Xbox 360)

alternate source made me laugh. now we'll have a ton of articles with question marks asking 'is agent really exclusive to ps3???'

the thing is, despite GTA being a sony associated game, GTA3, Vice City and SA all came out to the xbox around a year+ later.

This makes me think that they'll have it as a ps3 exclusive in order to get a new ip out there with the support of sony. Sony will love it cus obv they get an exclusive game but i'd actually be more surprised if say a year or so after Agents release on ps3, a 360/pc version emerges.

There would be no reason why it shouldn't looking at the previous paterns. i mean the only game which wasn't on both platforms was table tennis i believe?

from what I've read about it the reasoning seems to be that being a PS3 exclusive will get the new IP noticed with all the extra hype and everything.

I'm thinking that if/when it becomes a hit after release they'll probably keep it PS3 exclusive but the sequals will be multi-platform generating a huge amount of sales and revenue just like GTA does now.

edit: while that's what I think will happen, I wouldn't be surprised if they do port it to PC/X360 like they have with previous GTA games. In those cases though, I don't remember them actually saying the games would be PS2 exclusive.

"""Ben Feder: I have a confession to make: I'm not a hardcore gamer. But I've seen the game - obviously I review all the games. I think gamers will be blown away by it."""

thats enough for me .. AGENT will be HUGE .

the second reason for that is FIRST party sony support.. the most talented people in this industry work together to make AGENT.

i think what you smell is your disappointment at it being a ps3 exclusive.

LOL, Ben Fedrer doesn't think highly of fanboys...
About E3:

"Eurogamer: Who won?

Ben Feder: Oh, I don't see it as a competition.

Eurogamer: But it sort of is. Everyone else thinks it is, really...

Ben Feder: Well, you can take their temperature if you like!"
