Sony caught a lot of flack for its over-hyped but utterly disappointing Playstation 3 launch. The Playstation has been the king of the console hill for the past two generations, but poor reviews and little game selection has seen the third gen Playstation struggle to compete with its peers. But Sony’s not going to go down without a fight, especially to something with a name like “Wii”. Sony and Rockstar Games, creators of the Grand Theft Auto series, have signed and exclusive deal for the controversial video game companies “next great franchise.” As Sony’s Michael Shorrock on the PlayStation blog:
“Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3, harnessing the power of Cell and Blu-ray disc.”
Good news for Sony fans (and their stockholders), but really, you can keep all that wannabe gangsta bullshit. I’m just counting the days till Final Fantasy XIII.
