Good to hear this, as I own a 360 but this has got to suck for the people with PS3's.

Yes Dex, but think of this:

LCS: "Exclusive to PSP"
VCS: "Exclusive to PSP"

What happened? A few months later they came out on PS2. Rockstar don't really keep their titles exclusive to a console because they will make more money having it open to more buyers. It's possible that with the Content, it will end up on PS3 to make more money for Rockstar.

Thing is that both LCS and VCS still ended up on Sony specific platforms. Considering Microsoft forked out fifty million to Rockstar, I highly doubt that the PS3 will get downloadable content any time soon.

Hmm, you are right. Rockstar really seem to be leaning a certain way this time, towards the Xbox. Fair enough because they got that much money, but they should still support other platforms.

Thank you. And as it relates to the deferred revenue chunk associated with the episodic content on X-Box 360, you can see that $25 million of that moved into short-term deferred. Could you give us any sense of when thatís going to hit the P&L? Will we see $25 million at one time and then the second 25 or will it be a slow bleed?

Lainie Goldstein

The first 25 is for the first episodic content package thatís supposed to go out and that is in March of í08. Thatís why it moved into current because itís in the next 12 months. The second 25 will be for the second episodic, the episode, and that will be later in fiscal í08.

Yeah, I suppose at one time GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas were all "exclusive" to PS2 but the contract with Sony was only for a certain amount of time. After the contract expired they were free to put the games on the Xbox. I could see something like that happening again.

Slim, the stories series ended was still on Sony products only. Microsoft have done a deal with Rockstar, sorry to say this but I highly doubt PS3 will see these expansions. (although they'll most likely have their own)

People still don't seem to get that the only reason 360 is getting this content is because Live costs money, while PS3's online service is free. Rockstar wants to make money like any other company out there. Who would by content off of the 360 when you could download it for free on the PS3?

I think most extra downloadable content on both systems cost money, however, you have to pay for the Live service, and not the PSN one.

The content would still cost money even if it was going to be available on the PS3 at some point in time. Xbox Live may not be free, but it's certainly better than the Playstation Network.

Wow, they just said it was a EXCLUSIVE for the 360! Stop hopeing that the content going to be on the PS3.
Do you know what exclusive means? But yeah I think the PS3 is going to get a little surprise.

Rockstar doesn't do something like this to their fans, they wouldn't. Rockstar had a deal with Sony since GTA III, so did that mean the games would never be released on Xbox? Nope, it surely was, the PS2 versions never got anything extra than the Xbox versions, can't see why they wouldn't follow that same pattern here. Everyone gets the same thing, just at different times. Don't let the word "exclusive" put you in doubt, Rockstar uses that word in probably the worst ways possible we've learned over the years. No deal with anyone will change that.

Enemyinsurgent, I assume you're a 360 owner, so at this point you could probably care less or not at all if PS3 owners get the same experience. You obviously know the definition of "exclusive" but not Rockstar's definition.

Love it or not, that's still console bashing. Wrong choice of words there. And how is the PS3 "fucking Sony up" (according to you) relevant to this at all? Is it alone the PS3's fault that its version of GTA IV will "apparently" (by what we know thus far) not be receiving at form of exclusive content? No, makes no sense.

Is your brain dead? If PS3's online is free doesn't mean that the content has to be free

Buy it in store, download of a special place designed for it etc
