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.
