With time we'll see where this exclusive content issue goes, there's not actually been any official announcement (such as a press release on Take2's web site) regarding said content to only ever be released for the 360 version of the game.
Actually there has been an announcement about 2008, but PS3 was not mentioned when gta iv content came to place. http://ir.take2games.com/ReleaseDeta...leaseID=248580

I thought it was already known that the downloadable content is exclusive to Xbox 360, according to the take2 press release almost a week ago. Perhaps nobody linked to it before on this forum.

Edit: Oh, Static's post (above me) also has the link to it.

That's if you include DVD which is obvious, I stated this in a previous post if you care to actually read the whole thread. But in HD-DVD Vs. Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray is leading by 3-to-1, If you include DVD sales, then yes, bt obvious knowledge, DVD sales are kicking their arses into the ground, but that isn't a HD format, it's a now standard format like VHS was, it isn't new technology. I'm sorry I confused you.

You didn't confuse me, it's just that, this whole "hd next gen format wars" crap is annoying me. It just isn't needed.

I've got to agree with Victim (and those who agree with him), Really, we've known the downloadable content was exclusive for 360 since last year when GTAIV was annouced. But ofcourse as mentioned above, exclusive with GTA has merely meant a delay for other platforms. Also, until T2/R* say there will be no extra content for PS3 it's still up in the air.

From a conference call held with Take 2's CFO last week:

"The first 25 million is for the first episodic content package that ’s supposed to go out and that is in March of ’08. That’s why it moved into current because it’s in the next 12 months. The second 25 will be for the second episodic, the episode, and that will be later in fiscal ’08."

Well, $50 million's a lot of money. If Microsoft really did pay up, I don't see why it wouldn't be exclusive. Assuming this transcript is true (or if I'm even comprehending it right).

ooooh, nice find. This could mean PS3 may get the content packages fiscal 2009 or really later 2008 and with both of these content packages rolled into one. We can't really tell until we see the full legal contract terms.

50 million dollars for exclusive content.. I gotta be honest when I say that sounds like a lot of bull. Sure Microsoft is one of the most successful companies out there and could no doubt afford that, but that my friend is way too much money.

What I've been trying to say here is that until we get the word from Rockstar and/or Take2 that the PS3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV will not ever be receiving this episodic content, that there is no reason to believe it will never receive the episodic content. Rockstar/Take2 have watched their words with this one. They only say "the content is exclusive to the Xbox 360 version" never have they mentioned the PS3 not receiving the same or its own content eventually after.

Glad to see I could change some of your opinions around. Don't want you guys to give up hope on this.

Edit: Well I've looked more into it, and apparently Microsoft did pay Rockstar $50 million for the content. This means that if the content was priced at $10.00, a total of at least 5 million people would have to purchase at least one of these episodes for MS to break even.

Slim mircosoft can well afford 50 million to secure a something as successful as GTA.
The company has an annual revenue of 45 BILLION dollars. Fifty million is nothing compared to the amount of people who will buy the 360 version just for the content.

Lynk I edited my post after looking into it, okay? I just think that's a bit ridiculous for some video game content, no matter what they can afford. And where were we discussing the # of people who would purchase the 360 version? I only mentioned people buying the content.

And people thought Rockstar would make stupid decisions because they wanted to make more money.. 50 million dollars for episodic content. Rockstar can do about anything they want now.

What turned me to the 360 without having to look back and regret my decision?

GTAIV Episodic Content being "exclusive" to the Xbox 360. So if you consider how many more xbox 360 sales there will be, they dont need to have atleast 5 million people to break even. MS got my 499.99, and I buy games, and 360 accessories. So you can just see how the minimal console sales will mean that microsoft will earn "lifetime"(lifetime for this gen of consoles) customers.

I was just throwing out random numbers I saw on The GTA Place. It's obvious that well more than 5 million people will download the content priced at $10.00 (although speculations have suggested the content will cost much more, but who knows).

As for what "turned you to 360"..

Remember what made people buy PSPs? LCS and VCS being exclusive to the PSP. X months later, oh a PS2 version! Lots of people wasted money on PSPs just so they could play these new GTAs when all they really had to do was wait X months. Of course this case is not exactly the same, but you should see where I'm going with this.

Dude, they're all business men. What makes you think they really give a serious hoot about fans ? I mean, yeah they want to impress us, but on a better note make money just like anyone else in this world.


Please stop with the "oh my gosh, rockstar will never do this to the fans!!" It's all about business everyone...

But on the other hand, who knows what the PS3 version will hold. We don't know yet, so why are we arguing about it ?

It's pretty much pointless at this point of time.
