Sony's Marketing man hints at something exclusive for GTA V on PS4


It's being claimed by SCEA marketing vice president John Koller that the PS4 version of GTA V will have a certain something to make it the most appealing option.

When asked in a new interview with Kotaku if the PlayStation version would include anything extra or exclusive, Koller told the site, "I don't think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be."



"The amount of people who purchase one platform or the other relative to the install base swung well in PlayStation's favour for the initial release of GTA V. That was thanks in part to a partnership with Rockstar which included cross-advertising efforts and hardware bundles.

"We would expect that to happen here, too," Koller said. "GTA is a PlayStation franchise. It started with us. We really feel strongly that it belongs as a key platform driver for us."

Koller is a marketing man, so this deal could be anything from exclusive advertising to exclusive DLC or it could be something that most people will barely notice. It sounds to us like we just have to wait and see.

Interestingly the PC version actually has something exclusive, a movie maker which by the sounds of things is similar to the one present in GTA IV.

Some exclusive DLC would be nice, and it'd be something they could laud over Microsoft. Having said that, I think an exclusive bundle is more likely. Still, guess we shall have to wait and see :)

It is nice to know you want me to feature in the DLC, but I am not gay! If the exclusive PS4 content is worth it then may get the PS4 version, but will still probably go Xbox ONE or PC, as that is what my friends have.

This will be PC for me because of the modding community.

It would be PC for me but I think with my current setup my PC would spontaneously combust if I tried to run GTA V

Nope! You will need to spend another £1000 cos apparently that is what PC gaming is like

Popular theories about this are that it's gonna be either a discount for owners of the PS3 version or the game is going to make use of that new PS4 multiplayer feature where you and your friends can play the game online together even if only one of you has a copy of the game (Far Cry 4 obviously being the 'launch game' for this feature.). Could even be both. Either one would be very welcome though.

I'd also like to debunk his statement of '...GTA is a PlayStation franchise. It started with us...' no it didn't, it started with the PC. For those that can remember that far back.

"I'd also like to debunk his statement of '...GTA is a PlayStation franchise. It started with us...' no it didn't, it started with the PC. For those that can remember that far back." - The series didn't really take off in popularity until GTA3 came out on PS2 though. So in that sense, he's right.

Doesn't matter if it only took off cos of the controversy of GTA 3, still was originally a PC series.

Shish, GTA was on GBC, it started on Nintendo. ;)

"Doesn't matter if it only took off cos of the controversy of GTA 3, still was originally a PC series." - Was 'originally' planned as a multiplatform title from the off. Seems it had a lot of development setbacks though and the PS1 version of the first game came out a couple of months after the PC one and a planned N64 version was just canned outright. Semantics aside though, the series has always been more closely tied to Playstation platforms than any others. Koller maybe should have said something like that instead.

That is the wording I would have used, yes

This will make Rockstar a Tonne more cash. Judging by the trailer the game received a substitutional upgrade. Now will they sell it at full price? heck even if they did we will all be like sheep to the slaughter house ;)

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
