Scott Steinberg, VP of product marketing at Sony America, isn't concerned about Microsoft's exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV content
. Speaking with GameDaily,
Steinberg believes anyone who's played GTA: San Andreas
knows there's plenty to do in a GTA
game without adding extra content, but he really drives the point home with a zinger saying Microsoft "spent the GNP
of several small Latin American countries to get that [content]."
Steinberg surmises that not a huge percentage
of customers are going to jump for the downloadable content when GTA IV
is so huge and they're still playing through the core game. He also contends that consumers who are still fence sitting about purchasing a console will want a PS3 after noticing that GTA IV
, Metal Gear Solid 4
and Gran Turismo 5 Prologue
are all on PS3.
