Sony was given the unique privilege of announcing Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4, so it’s little wonder that it’s cooking up something special for the next-gen port. Speaking with Kotaku, marketing executive John Koller hinted that there’s a special bonus in the pipeline for those who purchase the re-release on its latest super machine – but it’s not ready to divulge what at this stage.

“I don't think that we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be,” he said when quizzed directly about the prospect of some kind of added treat. The platform holder has been pretty proactive when it comes to exclusive content and extras, so you should probably expect a small sweetener in the form of an additional weapon, costume, or, potentially, vehicle.

Koller continued that, despite being a multiformat affair, Grand Theft Auto is a franchise that’s strongly associated with the PlayStation brand. “It started with us,” he explained. “We really feel strongly that it belongs as a key platform driver for us." He continued that more information will be announced as the title edges closer to its fall release window.

It’s worth mentioning that the PS4 version will allow you to import your multiplayer data from either the PlayStation 3 or the Xbox 360. Moreover, developer Rockstar Games is promising that the package will provide more than just a minor visual bump – as evidenced by these side-by-side comparison images.
