At E3 on Monday, a few partnerships between PlayStation and other companies were revealed, including the Battlefield: Hardline beta coming to PS4, the Destiny PS4 alpha test starting on Thursday, and Far Cry 4 getting an exclusive feature where you can invite friends to a co-op session, even if they don’t own the game.
The PlayStation press conference was also home to the big announcement that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, but they failed to mention if there were going to be any sort of exclusives on PS4.
Well, while we don’t know the extent of what it may be, SCEA’s VP of Platforms Marketing John Koller was asked by Kotaku if there might be “anything to that particular deal or that particular offering that will make it better-suited to play on PS4 instead on any other platforms?” Here’s what Koller had to say:
I don’t think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be. I think GTA V is a title that did extremely well on the PlayStation 3. In fact… the index rate is the amount of people who purchase one platform or the other relative to the install base – it swung well in PlayStation’s favor for GTA V, a lot of it because of the partnership we had with Rockstar. We would expect that to happen here, too. GTA is a PlayStation franchise. It started with us. We really feel strongly that it belongs as a key platform driver for us.
Koller wouldn’t go into any further specifics, just teasing that we’ll hear more in the “weeks and months to come” and “GTA V and the GTA franchise is something that will be very special on PlayStation.”
When we learn more about Grand Theft Auto V on PS4, we’ll let you know.
What do you think the exclusive thing could be? New content? A PS4 bundle? A GTA V-themed DualShock 4?
