Cool, if true. Good on Sony, got in there before MS.

EDIT: @1.2- I agree. After reading a little bit more about this rumor, it seems like bullcrap. Too many things in the article seem too fishy:

#1- giving Rockstar a blank check? Executives never say that.

#2- If this statement was given to the press, why was an Xbox only magazine be the only one with the scope?

Douche3696d ago

This contradicts Jack Tretton's statement of Sony not buying exclusives. The only difference here is that Rockstar truly wanted this in the first place. To be able to harness the power of the PS3 solely and to take advantage of the benefits of Bluray. Who really cares about being the nice guy at this point? Good job taking initiative Sony.

xbots just got owned..
ps3 IS future proof, it will own 2008, and will continue to own 2009 with gta exclusive!

im not so sure but dvd9 wont be enough for gta..the next gta will be bigger and badder

Vojkan3696d ago

Jack Tretton is a puppet. He doesnt know a sh.t! Just check youtube to see some of his legendary charades.

DarkArcani3696d ago

Two IPs. One is LA Noire and the other is yet to be announced.

if sony gets rockstar dat wud be HUGE

The next GTA that is the once coming out after nxt yrs will be GTA 7. San Andreas was technically GTA 5 and the next 1 would be GTA 6. GTA 3 was the first of the games to hit playstation 2. Then we had vice city and san andreas.

MS just isn't hungry enough... There too busy closing up shop.

SuperSaiyan43696d ago

The next GTA is GTA 4...GTA 7 could be most likely a PS4 title...Or a PS5 title depending how quickly Rockstar want to mint the franchise.

LSDARBY3696d ago

It means it will be the 7th in the series, including vice city & san andreas.

TheExecutive3696d ago

7th installment in the series... San Andreas, Vice City etc. are counted

jcgamer3696d ago

It was two GTA's before GTAIII, then there was Vice City and San Andreas, which would make 5...GTAIV makes 6...this exclusive would be the 7th in the series...and on the PS3 exclusively, according to OXM...no name announced yet...they could call it GTAV...

Snukadaman3696d ago (Edited 3696d ago )

let them have it...its only GTA 7....3 more versions too go until its exclusive...for some reason ..some of them think GTA 6 or 5 is delayed right now......lol

look..its a rumor from official xbox magazine...no announcments from sony or rockstar...wouldnt you think both would be saying something..cmon now. especially if its exclusive for sony.

ohh sorry i forgot the /sarcasm my bad....

SRuN43696d ago (Edited 3696d ago )

are you kidding me? exactly the type of person i commented on down the page; the typical "GTA7 is years down the road LOLZ" response. if you actually read it, you'd clearly state the 7th game of the series not GTA7 itself.

DethWish3696d ago

There was a GTA London also... and I think there were atleast one other GTA game before GTA3 (excluding GTA1 and 2)
So this would make this title...... GTA9? :O

Anyways this rumour seems a bit weird to me
