E3 2014: Grand Theft Auto 5 on PS4 will include a special bonus
PlayStation's North American marketing vice president John Koller today revealed, in an interview with Kotaku, that the PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will include “something very special.”
When asked if the PS4 version will include any sort of console-exclusive incentive, Koller said:
“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.
“GTA V is going to be, I think, a title we’ll talk about more in the weeks and months to come,” Koller added, “but GTA V and the GTA franchise is something that will be something very special on PlayStation 4.”
Of course, the exact nature of this bonus content remains unknown. The most likely candidates are some sort of content throw-in, be it a handful of bonus missions or a timed exclusive, but it’s anyone’s guess until further details surface.
GTA V will release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC this fall.
