'Something Special' On The Way For GTA V On PS4
There may be no details yet but picking up GTA V for your PS4 will net you some exclusive content.
Kotaku's Stephen Totilo recently had a chinwag with Rockstar's North American Marketing VP John Koller. The talk produced vague but potentially exciting news plus an appreciation of the fans that made GTA a success.
Kotaku: I there anything to that particular deal or that particular offering that will make it better-suited to play on PS4 instead on any other platforms?
Koller: 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...—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.
Kotaku: You're saying that you can't say what it is, but that there will be something special for PlayStation owners?
Koller: GTA V is going to be, I think, a title we'll talk about more in the weeks and months to come, but GTA V and the GTA franchise is something that will be something very special on PlayStation 4.
Something very special? I like the sound of that. Myself and a few other members here have been able to wait and it seems as though we will be rewarded, not that those who loved the PS3 version aren't free to upgrade as well. We don't yet know if there will be an official upgrade option.
What we do know is that for the online portion at least, PS3 and Xbox 360 saves will transfer to PS4.
