Rumor: Max Payne 3, GTAIV Team Working On PS3 Exclusive?

While we're always in the business of providing reliable, up-to-date news on anything PlayStation-related, we have to admit that everyone snaps awake when the word "rumor" accompanies a report.  So raise your hand if you like a good rumor. 'raises hand' I do, I do!

Enter EGM's Quartermann; he's at it once again in the October issue, as detailed by 1Up.com. Quartermann isn't always right - that's why it's called a "rumor" - but if this information is true, it's going to raise a lot of eyebrows amongst PlayStation 3 owners. First of all, it seems that despite Remedy Entertainment spending all their time with Alan Wake, Max Payne 3 is still in the works. Rockstar has taken up development duties; the same team that gave us The Warriors is at the helm, and that's good news. But the second part of this rumor is even bigger: apparently, EGM has word that Rockstar is "still hard at work on an unannounced PlayStation 3 exclusive." The team behind this mystery project is the team that gave us Grand Theft Auto IV, so, yeah...crazy stuff. If it's true, what could they possibly be making?

Check out the October issue of EGM to read all this for yourself; it should be coming into stores this week. Obviously, we will now be scanning around for any info concerning a supposed PS3 exclusive being made by Rockstar. You can bet on that.

Isn't Knights of the Old Republic a BioWare game? Correct me if I'm wrong. But thanks for reminding me about that series, I'd completely forgotten about it. Hope we do see a new KotOR game in the future.

I want both current installments ported to PS3...I don't care how crappy the quality might be...pull a bioshock sort of thing and upgrade it...such a good story!

I don't believe that they would work on an exclusive game. Why would they? After seein all the money GTAIV made on multi platform. I'm seriously not understanding that rumor at all. But Max Payne 3 sounds kick ass!

IT IS A PS3 EXCLUSIVE,I HAD NEVER EVER FORGOTTEN THAT STATEMENT MADE BY A ROCKSTAR REP. THAT THEY WOULD MAKE A GAME WHICH CAN ONLY BE DONE ON PS3,THAT MEANS BLU-RAY IS GONNA BE NEEDED TO DO DAT!

Max Payne 3 would be excellent. The series needs an update for gen 7.
btw, how long do you think it'll be before we start seeing the abbreviation MP3 confusing us on this game?

That would be great if they were working on a ps3 exclusive, no 360 to hold back the game's potential.

If they are working on a new game, I think it will probably be a new IP.

I remember this rumor from a while ago, actually. I don't know the exacts, and my old memory is getting a bit faulty and is in need of a 16oz/gig Red Bull upgrade, but I can faintly recall someone asking a Sony rep -- one of the big dick guys in the company -- about GTAIV not being exclusive, and him asking the questioner something to the effect of, "How about a new IP exclusive to the console from the same developers?" Am I wrong on remembering this?

yea right ... MS is gonna bribe them again to get it on their platform, unless if they make this new unannounced game push the PS3 to the limit in which the 360 cannot do, like MGSIV and Heavy Rain.

I'm gonna have to agree with that Max Payne 1 was definitly better than 2, 2 might've LOOKED better but definitly not better. 3 might be good tho if they do it right...hopefully.

I highly doubt that out of any team out of teams out there, that the GTA4 team would try to stay exclusive. I say BS on that rumor and/or timed exclusive if ANYTHING.

You guys need to learn how to read. It states that Rockstar is making Max Payne 3, AND a PS3 exclusive.

Max Payne 3 is NOT the exclusive, sorry every post I read, read it wrong.

This is good to be hearing news on this. I've also heard that a RS rep also suggested that all future GTA's will be exclusive to the PS3. I don't have a link and it's just a rumor, but feel free to google it.

This is essentially just an extension of the rumor from last August. http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/1673.html About Sony "taking Rockstar under their wing" (likely with development tools, basically giving them all the advantages that their second party studios, such as Insomniac receive). But this one is also combined with the rumor from last September. http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/1613.html Where an "unannounced exclusive" from the guys behind GTA was under development.

The fact that this has finally popped up again makes me optimistic at the chances that this is true. But I can't get the pesimism out of my system entirely. It seems like this guy couldn't find anything else to print so he reached into the vault. I just hope that the GTA4 team is working on SOMETHING. Be it GTA5, something else, or what ever; I don't care if it's an exclusive I just love these guys games. I also hope that even if Sony did pull their support for LA Noire (http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/2766.html) that the game is still in development in some way or another (again, exclusive or not) it's just TOO good an idea to give up on.

And while I'm digging up old-ass Rockstar rumors, I really hope this (http://www.psxextreme.com/ps3-news/2264.html) turns out to be true. Before EA gets their hands on Take 2.

Poet,
All I asked was a simple question. You don't have to answer it if you don't like too. Please explain to me why asking you if you would buy a game if it was published by a particular publisher is flaming or would question if I have any dignity? I feel it is a legitimate question.

Every 2 months since the comments sections opened we've gotten some moron who comes on to the site types in all caps and claims to "know" developers, have inside information, etc. I might have jumped down your throat a bit but it is not completely without reason, and I stand by my comments.
