Why does PlayStation like Grand Theft Auto so much?

I mean PS promotes a lot of third party games, but mostly it's GTA. Why is this?

GTA to playstation is like call of duty to xbox, it's like their favorite third party game to use to make you play it on their console instead of the rival. And GTA5 and GTA4 is really way better on PS3.

GTA 4 is better on Xbox 360 since that was the console it was built on, before being ported to PS3. Since both GTAV versions were built in unison, R* were able to take advantage of the PS3's specs and that's why GTAV's better on PS3 and all their marketing material was from PS3 version.

 

 

 

OP: You seem to have something against GTA. I'm a huge GTA fan, but I really don't see anything wrong with the series. It's very fun, and IMO the best open-world series currently out there.

Theres nothing I remember more then playing gta3 on the ps2. Even though it also came out on pc and xbox with better graphics and custom music, for some reason I have the best memories on the ps2 version. That wingless plane is burned deep into my memories Smiley Tongue

Its one of the best games ever made, for every copy sold they also get money, its a "playstation" game just as COD is an "xbox" game.

Might have something to do with the roots of the series starting primarily on PSOne.
