GTA Next still MIA...

,Q: You and Sony (SNE:NYSE - news - research) have had an exclusive,arrangement with the Grand Theft Auto titles. Are we going to see a,similar arrangement on the next generation of consoles?
,
,When we announced that -- back Grand Theft Auto 3 -- Sony was a,big, big factor in the business and was a great partner of ours. We,have brought that brand to the Xbox and the PC market. It's,just a wait-and-see attitude that we take to the market. study the,market and see that exclusive nature is good for the company,at that time or if it's something that we might not want to do.
,
,Q: So, the decision hasn't been made yet?
,
,We haven't announced anything yet. It's a good position to be in,,because we have the world's biggest brand and we have the hardware,companies asking us, and certainly they want that product on their,system. We will be finalizing that decision as we study the market.

everone knows that if sony gets the rights to gta for the ps3 that ps3 sales well go up just in the first year ... but at the same time if they jsut go for ps3 and xbox at the same time then we can see  both consoles have to find a new game to have the rights too .. if rockstar was msart they would just do gta for both consoles and make more money from the sales of both consoles at the same time .. but i really do want to see sony get the exclusive on gta... it would bring the sales of the ps3 to a higher sale % of that year .. and if its out at the sametime as the launch of the ps3 then you can really see the sales of the ps3 go up even more ... i really think gta sold more units than any other game out there to date.... gta rocks ..

I guess that's the only way Sony can compete with the other consoles. Buy exclusives rights.

How bout some new franchises?  GTA has been the same ever since the original, top-down game.  I'm sick of GTA 6, Halo 3, GT 5, DMC 4, PGR 3, etc.

I'm sure we'll see new IP's but the games you listed didn't really come into their own until last gen. GTA was always known but was never as popular as it is now. GTASmiley FrustratedA was only a taste of what *R* can do with the GTA franchise, with better hardware they'll reinvent the GTA seris once more. Halo was born on Xbox , and is what 4 years old? GT gets a pass because its a racing game and kinda falls in line with sports games because you can only update so much before you don't really notice a huge difference between versions. DMC was born on PS2 its poplaur title that keeps getting better I don't see the problem... PGR 3 see GT5. ,

atleast they only get exclusive rights and not go out and just buy the entire company.
