Microsoft to Pay $50 Million for Exclusive Grand Theft Auto Episodes
 
In a bid to steal more of the faltering PS3's market, MS is forking out 50 million for exclusivity to two episodes of the hugely popular GTA series, and at the same time bailing out a financially desperate Take-Two Interactive.

Obviously we have no way to really assess whether that's a good idea or not, but it's never stopped us from offering out opinions before! :biggrin:

Do you think it's worth it, or is it throwing good money after bad?

$50 big ones is peanuts when you consider the fact that vid games are a bigger market share than movies.

They'll make big bucks (provided the games don't suck), and hurt sony at the same time.....

Prior to the launch of the xbox 360 (or ps3) if I were told that Microsoft would be doing excellent in sales with thier new console and sony would be doing much worse (by comparison) I would have doubted that the power would have shifter NEARLY as much as it has.

GREAT business move, taking a well known tittle that is sure to sell many copies. even if microsoft looses 5 million on the GTA Deal its still worth it to prevent Sony from having that title in its PS3 Line up :thumb:

I hope that this means that a Windows version will be made, too ... But I somehow doubt it ... :(
