Rockstar Games upcoming secretive action game 'Agent' is exclusive to PS3, and that's because it will get "the right support," gives it attention and "traction".
Agent is an experience "about espionage, set in the 1970s." It's not similar to the Grand Theft Auto games, it'll be "very fresh for gamers." So far nothing more than a name has surfaced.
"It's not made up; these are all relationship matters and contractual matters. When we talk about our relationships and our exclusivity for PS3 and Agent, for example, we don't disclose anything beyond what we've already said," Take-Two CEO Ben Feder told .
"But we think it's important for us to be with Sony, and it's important for Sony, I think, to be with us. The game promises to be one of the best games available because of who's developing it, and because of the subject matter."
The boss man responds to the lack of juicy intelligence on the upcoming Rockstar espionage extravaganza, which is no surprise given how rigid the studios secrecy can be with new titles.
"I think it will be worth waiting for. When your readers - gamers generally - see what Agent is, what promise it has, I think it will be worth the wait," he added. "...I've seen the game - obviously I review all the games. I think gamers will be blown away by it."
"It's a completely different storyline, there is completely different character development. It's a game about espionage, set in the 1970s," explained Feder, on any similarities with GTA.
"GTA is obviously more about an urban experience, a typically rags to riches experience. Very, very different storylines, very different character development. It's going to be very fresh for gamers." Take-Two and Rockstar believe it safer with Sony, despite larger Xbox numbers.
"Because sometimes it's important when you're launching a new franchise to make sure you have the right support, so it really gets the user's attention and gets traction with gamers."
The urban experience, bullying at school, a cowboy ruckus out West and now the secret agent lifestyle - Rockstar sure lives the dream...
