SCE UK boss Ray Maguire has dropped the biggest hint yet that 360-exclusive DLC – stage whisper left: GTA IV – may merely be timed and will eventually end up on PS3.

“One thing to remember: nothing is ever exclusive,” he told Videogamer in London this week.

“Things get wrapped up for a period of time for a large amount of money and if it’s a strategic decision by competition to do that then we have to live with that.”

He added: “Obviously, what we have to do is make sure that our business plan is adhered to and we have the amount of money to invest in games rather than investing in stopping other people making games and progressing.

“So I would much rather that we were investing money into making sure that we’ve got great R&D and we start producing games like LittleBigPlanet, rather than paying other people a huge amount of money to stop people playing their product.”

Don’t lick him: he’s bitter. More through the link.
