As much as I want this to be true, I don't beleive this for a second. Because for one, Rockstar said specificly that it was an exclusive deal with Microsoft and Microsoft pay'd money to make sure that the DLC packs stay with the Xbox 360. And seccondly, I am thinking that Gaming Front is full of it!

Well I'm sure I won't be very much affected. I'm using Mac OS X Leopard.
But... I'm pretty sure the story is bullshit.

Sony has gone to shit, well every video game hadware company eventually does. From first to last? Seriously?

Besides Rockstar doesn't need the Sony BMG deals anymore. They've got money now.

Source: The most recent issue of the British magazine PlayStation World (aka PSW).

What we heard: Microsoft's locking down of exclusive downloadable content for its platforms is a sore point for PlayStation 3 owners. The foremost offenders are the two Xbox 360-exclusive episodes for Grand Theft Auto IV, which Microsoft paid $25 million each for, according to a June 2007 Take-Two Interactive conference call. (A transcript of the call is available on finance blog Seeking Alpha.)

While the timed PlayStation 2 exclusivity on previous GTA games like Vice City and San Andreas helped that platform become the top-selling console of all time, GTAIV has sold best on the Xbox 360. In part, that success was spurred by the two 360-only expansions, the first of which, The Lost and Damned, debuted in February to strong critical praise (see below).

Still, the prayers of many PS3 owners appeared to be answered this week, when Play.tm and about four dozen other multilingual (mostly) European sites cited PSW as reporting that Lost and Damned was PS3-bound. According to Digitial Spy's summary of the article--which is not available online--Microsoft only has a "a six-month exclusivity deal for the content, which expires in August." After that, the magazine reportedly said, the "content will arrive on the PS3 once the deal has run its course."

The official story: Sony did not respond to e-mails, and Take-Two reps politely-but-firmly declined to comment. Microsoft, however…

Bogus or not bogus?: …issued a blunt but unequivocal statement about the prospect of a PS3 Lost and Damned. "The [GTAIV] episodes are exclusive to Xbox 360," a rep told GameSpot, officially ruling out any chance of a port. However, Take-Two Interactive's refusal to divulge sales figures for The Lost & Damned make it unclear if Microsoft paid too high a price to keep the add-ons 360-only.

Im sticking to my belief that it will indeed see the PS3. The only time i will believe that TLAD WONT be coming to ps3 at all is when Rockstar say it themselves. So until then...

Think about this question. Did Microsoft pay $50,000,000 for the Lost and Damned and DLC#2 to be 360 exclusive, or did they pay $50,000,000 to have all GTA IV DLC only exclusive to 360?

I always thought the deal was $50 million for 2 episodes,
but then again none of us know the details of the deal between rockstar and microsoft
it could be only a 6 month exclusive thing, and microsoft wouldn't want anyone to know cause then they could wait for it to come to PS3 and not buy the xbox 360 version
only time will tell, once we get some word from rockstar or take two thats the only time we'll know for sure

Why are Sony and Rockstar saying no comment to this rumour. If the contract between Rockstar and Microsoft is for all GTA IV DLC to be exclusive indefinatly then all Rockstar has to say is "The Playstation 3 will never get Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content due to the deal that we and microsoft share where all GTA IV DLC will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 only. Saying that would officially stop the rumours from circulating and put the speculation to rest, but no they said no comment. Either they are making PS3 DLC for GTA IV that isn't the same as Microsofts exclusive episodes, or they don't want to comment on rumours. Why is this story got to be so close to E3. If Sony and Rockstar were gonna announce anything major (PS3 getting DLC for GTA IV is major) then they are gonna do it at the years biggest gaming expo. Which is E3. If Rockstar were gonna say something to stop these rumours then they would have done it by now. Something big is happening.

Because, The Shy Child, if a company comes out and says No, then people think they are lying and it means Yes, Companies are pretty innocent women and gamers and rapists, when they say No it means yes! For example, Hideo Kojima, Konami, Kojima Productions, Sony, etc have always said that MGS4 is never coming to the 360, what's the latest rumour? "Oh I heard that MGS4 is coming to the 360", remember no matter how many times they say no, gamers think Yes.

edit: Also DigitalSpy is not a creditable source anymore, over the years they've become more mainstream Celeb news than Technical news and their reports of gaming are just recycled articles from other websites, they don't have a clue anymore.
