It appears that Rockstar Games, creator of the Grand Theft Auto (GTA) series, has a different definition of the term “exclusive”.
On the release of GTA V on PC, the company claimed that the Rockstar Editor, a video editing tool that shipped with the PC version of the game, would be exclusive to the platform.
However a recent Q&A on Rockstar’s site claims otherwise.
“The Rockstar Editor is an advanced tool requiring additional processing power so it would not be compatible with GTAV on the older systems, but we are currently working on a version tailored for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles – and we hope to release that sometime this summer, or as soon as it is ready,” the company said.
In addition to this, the PC-exclusive radio station “The Lab” will be coming to the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 as well. It’s an interesting to see PC-only features like the Rockstar Editor hitting what are perceived to be less powerful platforms. And while Rockstar has not indicated how exactly this would be implemented, it’s safe to say that it would be available to all owners of the game on PS4 and Xbox One via a software update.
We played GTA V on PC and found it to be the definitive edition of the game what with some great mods available for it as well.
