Sony Announces New Exclusive Rockstar Title 97

Posted by Zonk

The official PlayStation blog has the word that Rockstar is gifting Sony with a brand-new franchise. Gift is probably the wrong word; I'm sure it cost a pretty penny to obtain those exclusivity rights. Just the same, as Gamespot notes, this is a good sign for a company that's lost a number of fish to Microsoft over the last year: "Recently, more and more titles which were previously thought to be exclusive to one console or another have been announced as multiplatform, including Assassin's Creed, Fatal Inertia, and Devil May Cry 4. Some media speculation stated that former Sony chief Ken Kutaragi's 'slowness' in tying up the red tape of the deals had led to Sony losing exclusives for the PS3." No word on what the game is, other than it is not L.A. Noire.

    Sony Execs: "See - the PS3 does have exclusives! I mean, those Rockstar guys promised us a new game sometime in the future. We just don't know what it's called yet. Or what it's about. Or when it will be finished. But we'll be damned if it's not exclusive!"

    ... if this were a practical joke on Sony

    This summer in cooperation with Sony entertainment, Rockstar Studios presents:
    My Little Pony: Revenge

    Be enthralled as your pony gains hair power to rip the sculls out of unsuspecting pedestrians

    Be overwhelmed as your pony gains frolic points to unleash a deadly stream of missiles on all who stand in his way

    Be ready for the coming of the cute little ponies who are going to Kick Your Ass!

    Coming August 2014

    Rated: WTF

    Actually, now that I think about it, that sounds like a sweet-ass game, I can't wait till it comes out!

    You play the head of the video game division of a large consumer electronics company. Your goal is to successfully market an overly expensive game console against tough competition. The North American title is unknown, but in Japan it will be called "Kobayashi Maru".

When you don't know what to do, walk fast and look worried.
