:eek: Considering Microsoft owns RockStar games and Take Two say's they are making it for Xbox, it's a matter of time when Grand Theft Auto3 come's out. But I would like to know when though?:)

First off Microsoft does not own Rockstar. That was a rumor months ago about Microsoft pursuing Rockstar but those rumors never came true.
And GTA3 will not come to the Xbox until Sony's exclusive deal runs out.
Which could be as long as the usual 1 year.
But maybe at e3 we Xbox owners will finally hear something, cause these GTA3 threads are out of hand!:rolleyes:

I know for a fact Sony has a contract for exclusive period of time for GTA3. I do research instead of making stuff up like dude that says Microsoft owns Rockstar:rolleyes: If that's the case why am I not playing GTA3 right about now Point Dexter?

Anyways exclusive contracts go way back to the SNES/Genesis days when Nintendo payed Capcom off to have Street Fighter II be SNES exclusive for 1 year! Then after that time ran out Capcom quickly made Street Fighter II Hyper Champion Edition for the Sega Genesis.

Also in this day in age Sony just payed Sega off for 1 year exclusive rights of VF4.

dude, I could go on and on about contract, but I think I made my poit already.
have a nice day!:)

Like I said before, Microsoft is the new owner of RockStar Games. Look in the official Xbox magazines and game store's.

Shut the **** up. M$ dont own Rock *. They have a big share in take two like around 20% i think. But they dont OWN Rock *.There exclusive contract should b over soon also. Like everyone else said wait till E3. We tell u and then u go against what we said. whats the point of asking. W/E. Guys dont even bother.

Microsoft said themselves they own RockStar Games. I'm not going to believe a pansy like you!

the only thing i can find that even says Microsoft bought rockstar is info from a source that is admittedly not that reliable.


This afternoon, I went over to my local Sam Goody retailer to finally pick up a copy of Grand Theft Auto 3 for my PS2. Apparently, they're out of stock. According to the rather chatty sales staff, Rockstar Games (makers of GTA3) were approached by Microsoft about making a version of the game for the XBox. Rockstar apparently declined. Microsoft then purchased Rockstar games, at which point they stopped production of GTA3 for the Playstation 2 and began development of a new GTA3 for XBox.

That is the only thing i can find, please show us something reliable from a news source or something. Either do that or stop posting that you KNOW that Microsoft bought Rockstar.

:( Question: Dose Microsoft own Rockstar Games?

( Eric has joined )
( Kar has joined )
Kar: Hi, Eric! Welcome to the Xbox Interactive Online Support. My name is Kar.
Eric: ok
Kar: No, Microsoft doesn't own Rockstar. Take Two Interactives own Rockstar.
Eric: I've been hearing the other way around
Kar: Eric, Rockstar games is a branch of Take Two Interactive.
Kar: Microsoft did not buy either one of them.
Eric: ok
Kar: Seems that what you've heard is only a rumor.
Eric: Do you know if the Xbox will get GTA3?
Kar: A GTA title for the Xbox is expected in Fall/Winter 2002.
Eric: cool
Eric: thanks
Kar: You're welcome, Eric. Is there anything else that I can assist you with today?
Eric: not right now I don't think

Thank you for inquiring about Xbox. If you need further assistance, please come back and visit us again. I hope you have a nice day!
( Kar has exited )
( Eric has exited ) I guess somebody plated a joke on me so as the chat state's above is true. I can except the fact I was wrong. But at least there will be GTA3 for Xbox!;)
