GTA 5 is “very special” to Sony, so expect bonuses on PS4

GTA 5 on PS4 will include some sort of bonus offering above and beyond what PC and Xbox One purchasers receive.

Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One was announced at Sony’s E3 2014 conference, so it’s no surprise Sony and Rockstar have come to some sort of arrangement.

What the deal actually entails is still up in the air; speaking to Kotaku, SCEA marketing boss John Koller refused to give details when asked if there would be special content for PS4 owners.

“I don’t think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be,” he confirmed.

“GTA 5 is going to be, I think, a title we’ll talk about more in the weeks and months to come, but GTA 5 and the GTA franchise is something that will be something very special on PlayStation.”

In fact, GTA 5 has already been pretty special for PlayStation.

“GTA 5 is a title that did extremely well on the PlayStation 3. In fact, the index rate — 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 favour for GTA 5, a lot of it because of the partnership we had with Rockstar,” Koller said.

“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.”

GTA 5 hits PC and next-gen consoles in northern autumn. The first GTA 5 PS4 trailer looks brilliant; watch Pat have hysterics over it below.

Thanks, Gamespot.

    I haven’t played GTAV yet so can’t see just how much better it is. Will need to see some high-quality screenshots compared to last-gen to see the difference.

    But very excited to play on PC. I wonder if the stuff they have planned on PS4 is something last-gen have already gotten or some new stuff that will be released only on PS4.

    For example didn’t see much difference in The Last of Us PS3 to PS4.

    This should have been announced at Sony’s e3 conference when the whole world was watching. So I’m not sure of how significant the exclusive ps4 content will be

    PC is going to have something real special as well: Mods.

    Best place to play this game by far.

    I’m boycotting this game due to a lack of a female protagonist.

    for a lot of people the best place to play is from the comfort of their couch in front of their big telly’s with a controller in hand without the need of having to spend much more in order to have the means to play practically the same game…so no
    didn’t see you say the same for Titanfall…weird

    @8

    You can do all those things with a PC as well. And it’s not the same game, with mods you can practically turn it into whatever you want.

    And not once did i say anything bad about the PC version of Titanfall, in fact i bought it for PC. Not sure what you’re getting at here.

    @gomersoul I’m glad they didn’t make a big deal out of it, and I hope you’re right that it’s not something super fancy, although Playstation is my console of choice. Parts of a game or DLC exclusive to one platform does nothing good for anyone in my opinion.

    such a hassle while turning the living room into a space station.
    sure for a very few(the hardcore ) this works but most people(casual) who are gamers don’t even bother buying gaming rigs or even game on pc.They just buy low-averaged priced laptops,netbooks,tablets etc for their multimedia and internet needs and game on consoles.i know a hell lot of them

    When Microsoft pulled similar PR stunts over Titanfall you seemed to be dancing all over while also contributing to that…but here,it’s obvious you just want to shit all over it.

    Paying X amount of Millions for exclusive content on a game what 1 years+ old… Not a great decision in my books… Same when MS comes to these type of decisions when purchasing DLC or content…. Maybe…Maybe if this was a new entry in the series… but, it’s not.
