Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content delayed

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:09 PM MDT | By Neil
It was today announced that "in order to provide a better balance in Take-Two's release schedule" the first episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV will now no longer arrive until the first quarter of the company's Fiscal 2009 year. In real terms, this means that you should now be expecting exclusive Xbox 360 content between November 1st 2008 and January 31st 2009.

The company also announced that Grand Theft Auto IV has sold approximately 8.5 million units since its release on April 29th.

Didn't WiiFit sell like 50 billion* units on it's first day?
8.5 mil doesn't sound much compared to Nintendo madness nowadays.

*huge exaggeration

Considering nothing works anymore, I can't say I'm too disappointed by this. Just had two 360s break in the same week, and despite buying them at the same time, they tell me one's not under warranty. I'm so burnt out on games. It's more work than it's worth these past few years. Meanwhile, my Super Nintendo still works perfectly fine.

This new GTA (minus the storymode) was a piece of crap! Now my only hope of this game somehow getting better is gone. I mean November to January? We'll have a new president by then!!!!!

This is not helping this game or the series at all. What was once the premier title(IMO) is now becoming an overhyped joke.

this game is the best in the series, and the episodic content will add to that surely, but seriously it's only like 1-3 months added to the release date... can you not cope with that? It should be able to tide you over until then with the story mode, and other single player activities, multiplayer, and free roam (yes it should be considered it's own thing). Free roam especially should tide you over for a while... that is.. unless you don't have any friends.

(IMO this game the way it is should be able to hold you over until episodic content comes out, and ultimately until the next GTA comes out.)

Rockstar better get with the game and make a better GTA next time that the (FANS) want to play. Not to say this isn't a fun game because it is. If they want the next GTA to sell as well as this one did they better up their game with a lot more fun features.
