    GTA4 - Don Mattrick: "Multiplayer support is unique to 360"

    He states:
    "[GTA4 is] an amazing piece of software and I'm really excited with it's downloadable content and online multiplayer support, again that's something unique to 360. We think consumers are going to love that and it's going to create what I would describe as the premium experience on our platform."

    About 9 minutes in or so.

    I myself hope it's not true, I doubt it's true as well.

    Note - I read this on another forum, I myself have not viewed the thing itself. Forgive me for an errors in my post. And yes, I know it's kinda stupid to post it without viewing it myself first, but I'm in a rush and being the person I am, posted it anyways.

    I listened to the interview earlier and those were his exact words. He also spoke about what he has being doing for the past 6 months, how he's prepping for 08. Also testing unannounced games. This would make a lot of gamers on the other side mad if MP was only on the 360.
    "We don't provide the 'easy to program for' console that (developers) want, because 'easy to program for' means that anybody will be able to take advantage of pretty much what the hardware can do, so then the question is, what do you do for the rest of the nine-and-a-half years?"

    If that has any weight to it, then the X360 sales will boom through the roof and the PSTriple sales will have a following but nothing special, online will make or break the game imo considering X360 will have the exclusive episodic content and achievements already and same visuals...

    Be a very bold move by MS, Online multiplay GTA only on 360? cant see it myself....


    Shouldn't the thread title include the fact its GTA we are talking about??

    They constantly use words like "unique", "exciting" and "I promise your 360 won't break down again". It doesn't actually mean anything.

    Tracking ahead to exclusives for next year, what does Microsoft have on tap?

    There’s a collection of exclusive and third-party hits, and we’re going to have a similar year to what we’ve enjoyed in 2007... We’re excited about “Grand Theft Auto [IV],” not only because it’s a great title, but there’s multi-play and downloadable content that consumers will only be able to get on 360. That’s a huge win. Arguably that title has the potential to be the “Halo” equivalent in calendar year 2008 in terms of number-one title revenue unit.

    sounds to me like hes saying the old 'the only place where you can have all of these features' is the 360, not saying that multiplayer is 360 only, but that DLC+multiplayer is unique to 360, whereas ps3 doesnt get DLC, perhaps?
    i think its just worded strangely.

    I think Don has been misunderstood...

    He means the use of GTA, Episodic exclusive content combined with XBL will be unique.

    I'd like to hear the logic of anyone implying what this thread is actually implying. Otherwise please lock and delete, this is the worst rumour I've ever heard. It's like people have 2 + 2 and are trying to come out with a 5.

    Well that's possible, when MS adds that silent/invisible (to many) 1 into the equation.

    maybe misunderstood, but why rockstar ghosted multiplayer on their site, if it will be on both version.

    also he said DC and multiplayer support, i think he understand what he meant

    D/L content has been confirmed as exclusive, the MP has not, while I really don't care either way because the GTA series is not one of my must haves.

    The lack of MP on the PS3 would be a reather dumb move, especially with all the units that will be sold by the time the games comes out. Either MS paid Rockstar a TON of money to do that to offset the profits lost with MP on a PS3 or it simply is not true.

    Amazing I seen the resemblance, I know it isn't a nice thing to say but I'm being honest.

    MythBusters for the win.

    Anyway, yeah, he was talking about the downloadable content+the multiplayer will make for unique experience.

    Yea.... people took his words out of context. He is clearly claiming that the the multiplayer experience + dlc episodic content is "unique" to the 360 not just the mp component.

    Sony would never let this happen or the fanboys would come flying out of the woodwork with email death threats.
