    Wow that's a lot of money, but it is GTA so I bet they made a huge amount on it, Millions of people bought it on release ( me included ), I was shamefully disappointed with, I'd rather stick with San Andreas thanks

    Sigh... why pay for a game that sucks? I think it sucks... it's been too much of the same lately...
    Ah well, since most people have and/or will buy/bought it, it'll make them money. Lots and lots of money.

    Probably worth it for MS in the long run.

    Rockstar & Take Two win big in the end £75 million (if true, we know Patcher is a liar) plus game sales on three formats. They have must have planned this before announcing what the game will be on.

    I didn't really like GTA 4, but for a lot of people GTA would be a reason to buy a PS3. This is a really smart move from Microsoft, even though 75 million dollars is a lot of money. Microsoft still tries to buy great content for their customers.

    What I don't get is why Sony didn't pay Rockstar to make GTA an exclusive.

    GTA as a PS exclusive would've been one of their (Rockstars) worst ideas ever.

    That's pretty damn good for Rockstar, since GTA IV cost around $100 million to make

    Sony paid for timed exclusivity on the PS2 era games. (GTA III, VC, GTA:SA)

    Seems like a good strategy. People no longer think of GTA as a "Playstation game." Mission accomplished. MS will stop at nothing to win their war with Sony.
