Sony announced Rockstar at Sony’s E3 conference this week in Santa Monica. Take-Two president Ben Feder has expressed his confidence in the game being a success as a PlayStation 3 exclusive.
â€œAt this phase in the cycle, when youâ€™re trying to launch a new franchise, exclusivity can really help you launch the franchiseâ€, he told Gamespot. â€˜It can give you the kind of platform that you need to start exclusive, start in the right kind of way with the right kind of partner. Exclusivity does work.
â€œI have a lot of confidence in Sony. I have a lot of confidence in their ability to lead the market, as they always have,â€ he added. â€œTheir console is a terrific platform to be developing for, and Agent is a great testament as to our belief in what that platform can do, and what they can do with us as part of a partnership.â€
The game itself is going to be fantastic, according to him. It’s agreeable as well, with the Houser brothers working on the project.
â€œWe think this has the potential to be yet another great Rockstar North franchise title. â€¦ Itâ€™s the Houser Brothers and Rockstar North. Itâ€™s the A team working on an AAA title. I think the subject matter, the characters, the story, the environment, the backgroundâ€“all the elements are there. Itâ€™s such a rich environment to play in.â€
