Xbox 360 GTA IV Exclusive "episodes"

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 08:22 PM MDT | By cyrix
GTA IV might be scheduled to be released on the 360 and PS3 at the same time, but it seems that Microsoft has managed to secure some exclusive content that is to be released via Xbox Live!

In a recent X06 announcement today, the content will be available a short time after the game is initially released in two "chapters." Each chapter is said to contain approximately 10+ hours of gameplay with new and unique content not accessible through the standard version of the game.

The release date is set for North America on Oct. 16 and Europe on Oct. 19. As of this announcement there is no scheduled release date for the episodic content.

Thanks to Kotaku for the information

Of course, we still know absolutely nothing about GTA4 aside from the name and expected platform.

Just to clear things up for everybody else who might not know, do you mean it will be released this year or next?

GTA4 is slated for release in October of 2007. It's still more than a year off.

I am not sure what these "extra contents" are.

Surely Rockstar would'nt release anything TOO significant to the story and leave PS3 in the cold?
After all it was thanks to the PS2 that made GTA REALLY big. It would be a bit un-decent of Rockstar to leave Sony fans in the cold.

But yes, it's still more than a year away and only time will tell. I am just hoping the city gets REALLY interactive. Take advantage of next-gen! Although with Blu-Ray (50GB) only release they could have done more. I'm sure R* won't dissapoint.

R* will do whatever they feel they have to do to make the most money.

They're a business, ultimately. That's what they do. It's possible the episodic content may be released later for other platforms, but don't bet on it.

That's kind of exciting, but I bet PS3 will have content like this too.

Good to know, but like others have said, I hope it makes it to PS3 also.

Exciting though, I bet the 'exclusive content' will be awesome.
