Ok, the_sextein, you are going way over on this. R* asked both, Sony declined, MS accepted, MS paid $50 Million, R* Invested $25 Million into each DLC Episode, Bigger DLC was created. Most game companies don't see much profits from DLC so the time developing it doesn't seem worth it, that's why most games just get basic map packs as DLC, now yeah, games out there that rake it in due to DLC (Rock band for example). What's happened here is that R* are attempting a full add on (Stories style game) as DLC so they've used the money from MS to fund that, so even if they don't make it back, they haven't wasted any of their finance on it. Plus I'm sure you know the worlds in shit at the moment and Take2 of all companies can't just throw money around.
