Rumor: GTAV delayed for 720 exclusive next gen GTAV marketing spend

Microsoft has showered Rockstar with money in the past, buying first-pass rights for DLC content for GTA IV. It's entirely possible the company has done so again, buying an exclusive port of GTA V for the next generation Xbox -- and wanted the launches closer together. (Sony doesn't seem to be in a financial position to do so at present.)

Basically Sony is too poor for GTAV next gen and releasing it closer to the next gen systems allows them to use the same marketing budget.

Exactly. The idea that they would delay pulling in close to a billion dollars is absurd. There are any number of deals they can do with MS (or Sony) for exclusive content on either next gen platform that have nothing to do with when it ships for 360/PS3.

I'm a little confused. So every one is going to get to play GTA V.. but the next box is getting a port of a game everyone is going to play?
