"Publisher Take Two announced in a financial results conference call that Grand Theft Auto IV will be shipped simultaneously for the Xbox 360 and PS3 during the month of October.
They also stated that the Episodes will start to be released in 2008, as far as we know this is still an exclusive to Xbox Live Marketplace."
Excuse me for my ignorance and all, but will GTA IV be released in October or in 2008? And what the hell are Episodes? Thanks in advance
Nice guys finish last

The game comes out in October, Episodes are just extra downloadable content to make the game last longer, may include extra missions or other stuff.
Oh shit, I'm feeling it

It's going to be released in October 2007.
And episodes are simply put, add ons
For example, people could consider Vice City an episodic update of GTA3.

The possibilities via the Extra Content are unlimited, only limited by space and what the console can handle

I'm pretty sure that the exclusive episodes will be released for PS3 at a later time.
And whatever "exclusive" content the PS3 will get, will probably be limited as well.
But like with the Xbox and PC in the III engined generation, the PS3 will have to wait longer than the 360 users for this content.
Gives the 360 the "I need a console for GTAIV what one should I get" market for GTAIV in the short term atleast.
ANd as to the updates pertainign to possible games..I doubt it. The X360's hard drive is only 20GB, and the PS3's is only 60GB. Microsoft may have plans for a 120GB..but still.
Anyway my point being to download an entire game, the filesize will be HUGE. And with the amount of people on download-limited broadband, it's just not a possibility.
