Rockstar doing PS3-exclusive

Group hug!

Rockstar is crafting a brand new franchise exclusively for PlayStation 3.

That's the word from Sony America's director of third party relations, Michael Shorrock, who told Sony's US blog that the game was "not LA Noire," in case anybody tried to put two and two together, "but something all-new".

"Everyone knows to have success in this business you need to look ahead, identifying the talent and titles that are going to give consumers new kinds of gaming experiences that help set the bar for the rest of the industry.

"Rockstar has a heritage for doing just that. We have had incredible success with the GTA franchise and are happy to continue to offer those titles on our platforms, and even more excited about what's to come from the current and future relationship between our companies.

"Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of CELL and Blu-ray disc and this deal lets them do just that," Shorrock declared.

Right now they're not saying anything about it, but promised to "share more info as soon as we can".

Rockstar titles that have debuted on Sony formats:

  • Bully/Canis Canem Edit
  • Grand Theft Auto III
  • Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
  • Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
  • Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
