PS3 Owners Will "Probably See GTA IV DLC" Says SCEE Boss

david reevesDavid Reeves, the big bossman over at SCEE, recently told VideoGamer.com that owners of the PS3 version of GTA IV “probably will see” DLC in the future. If this is to be taken seriously, it would take the “exclusive” wind out of the Xbox 360′s sales and leave them just floating aimlessly upon the water.

This comes on the heels of Microsoft sending out press releases and sound bites regarding their exclusive deal to bring hours of additional gameplay to the 360 version of GTA IV – something that the PS3 was lacking. However, when Videogaming.com caught up with Reeves after his SCEE PlayStation Day presentation in London yesterday evening, they asked him if the Xbox 360 exclusive content was “damaging to the PS3″ and he had this to say:

“Well I think you probably will see it, it’s just that a deal obviously was struck between Microsoft and Take-Two to do that, and if that’s what they want to do, I think that’s the last shot they have.”

Videogamer.com went on to ask Reeves if he had anything to say to PS3 owners who were curious about being left-out of the DLC, he replied:

“I would say to them then, you know, email Rockstar (laughs), and ask them what’s coming. I think they already are, probably! I’m honestly not going to make any comment on that because it’s too big a thing to… we can make an announcement when we make an announcement.”

Baited words from Sony, and no comment from Rockstar. Nothing unusual there.

Sounds like this guy was completely unaware that there was any DLC for the game at all.

Sony really looks like they are just sitting there in the corner with their thumbs up their asses this generation doesn’t it?

Apathy will kill you Sony.

The only reason I will be buying a PS3 is to play Blu-Ray movies, and maybe two exclusive games that are worth a flip….oh how the once mighty have fallen.

RIP Sony, you are mostly dead to me as a credible video game entertainment provider anyway….

Go Marlins!!!!

I can’t decide if he sounds apathetic or cryptic. The implications of saying “I’m honestly not going to make any comment on that because it’s too big a thing to… we can make an announcement when we make an announcement,” almost seems like he knows there is something in the works, but doesn’t want to be the one to blow the lid off it.

I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

I love how Sony can’t admit defeat ever since the PS1 was released. :lol:

I think it will happen. I’m just wondering how far down the road it will be. I think Reeves is just choosing his words carefully.

My guess is the deal has terms that specify how long the exclusivity will be. The money and time would have to be agreeable to both sides. With so many units sold on both consoles and the relative ease it is to deliver online content and profit from it, R* would want to have an option down the road to sell that content to the other console.
