Grand Theft Auto V Advertised As A PS3 Exclusive

No love for the Xbox 360

Grand Theft Auto V ps3 ad

A huge official advertisement for Grand Theft Auto V shows the game as a PS3 exclusive.

This is an official Rockstar banner as it covers lots of space in a New York street. This seems very odd considering Grand Theft Auto V is a multiplatform video game and will be released on the Xbox 360 as well come September 17th.

Gameranx reports that this could be a partnership between Sony and Rockstar. It’s possible Sony paid all the money for the advertising space in New York City.

It’s also worth mentioning that the first gameplay trailer was shown on the PS3 version while there’s a Grand Theft Auto V PS3 bundle coming out too. There’s no official Xbox 360 bundle for the game however…

    I have a ps3, and I really do not like Xbox at all. I think it’s a beautiful partnership between these two companies. Now, I would like to hear about a PS4 GTA V bundle!

    um just because its the Playstation version being advertised doesn’t mean its pegged as exclusive to that console.

    if sony paid for the banner to say Playstation then obviously its not going to have its competitors name brand stamped to it.

    besides one huge factor is missing.. it doesn’t say “ONLY ON PLAYSTATION” anywhere..just says on playstation indicating its one of the platforms.-_-

    theres an “on xbox” banner by my Gamestop.

    it would have been beast if Sony kept this exclusive. imagine a PS4 release with GTA as an can only dream:)

    Grand theft auto V is not going to be for Playstation only. I pre-ordered it for the 360 and the man at Gamestop even asked me to confirm, “Will that be for the 360?”

    Also, on a side note, why would Rockstar make GTA V a Sony exclusive? GTA IV was on the 360. That’s like saying that they’d move CoD: Ghosts to the Playstation only.

    Seriously, anyone who believes that GTA V will only be on the PS3, you’re gonna be disappointed.

    There’s is a PS3-exclusive console+game bundle and all screenshots and footage shown so far is from the Playstation 3 version, according to Rockstar. It’s clearly their preferred platform for this game but they say that the game looks and plays the same on Xbox 360.
