Episodes from Liberty City delayed until mid-April on PS3 and PC

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 04:00 PM MDT | By Neil
Rockstar Games just announced that it has pushed back the release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City (and the corresponding DLC) for PS3 and PC until mid-April.

The move comes following a "last minute game submission request from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe to edit some of the in-game Liberty City radio station, television, and internet content". The company has not been more specific than this, but it's likely that some fans will begin comparing the new releases to those which arrived on Xbox 360 last year.

Rockstar says that it wants the release to be "fair" for all and doesn't want to punish only PS3 players in Europe. Episodes from Liberty City and its respective downloadable content will now be released for PS3 and PC on April 13th in North America and April 16th in Europe.

I wasn't going to purchase it straight away anyway, because of Just Cause 2.

No console/platform wars please, yes it is a crappy move but slating whole companies for one small part is pointless.

This is the first POSSIBLY bad move I've ever seen Sony make.

I hope Sony know what they're doing, and they're not doing anything stupid.


I'm still looking forward to both the P.C. and PlayStation 3 releases despite this news.

Wait, so they are like cutting out content? How is Rockstar trying to be fair if Xbox received it?

Whatever. Rather play Rainbow Six Raven Shield, the best strategic/tactical FPS not-so available on the market.

^Rainbow Six, FUCK YEAH! So, I know there are some folks around here who usually have some good intel. Why are they editing radio content? I never noticed anything on the 360 version that was too over the top.

On one hand, I think that the ps3 shouldn't get many more content that the xbox360 and they should say no to this request. But on the other hand it
would be nice to be able to talk to my friends who have a ps3 or pc and talk about TBOGT. Bu whatever happens will happen.
