Get Lost... And Damned!

Grand Theft Auto IV's first downloadable content has just been released. Contrary to earlier reports, the download weighs in at 1.78 GB so you'll have awhile until it downloads unless you're on a super fast internet connection.

Stay tuned to GTA4.TV once you've got it as we'll have plenty of guides and screenshots on here to assist you with any of the objectives you might be stuck on.

Jump onto the forums too where you can arrange biker races and general multiplayer fun with fellow members.

Enjoy!

In other news, happy birthday to GTA-SanAndreas.com which was originally started on this very day 6 years ago! Unbelievable.

9%, I seem to be speeding up a little. Maybe my connection is lazy like me and wants to drag out the first 10% or so.

It was an honest though taken out of context. It would be very unfortunate if it were to happen but it is likely. And yes my PS3 is broken. The only thing stopping me from seeing if I can fix it is one little fucking stripped screw. Now isn't that a bitch?

It wouldn't surprise me if it does eventually. I bet its in the small print of the contract that its a timed exclusive. It might not be 6 months but give it a year or so and it'll be out on the PS3. R* aren't dumb they know in the long run they could make more than 50 million dollars having both DLC packs multi platfrom.

I do think it was a mistake R* splitting their fan base up like that knowing fine well for a lot of GTA fans the Playstation was seen as the natural home of GTA but I guess GTAIV cost a bomb to produce on platforms with not a huge user base and they needed to make their money back somehow. I doubt very much you'll see DLC exclusivity on future GTA's.

And I wouldn't believe anything R* say about it either. They said the PSP versions of LC Stories and VC Stories would never be on the PS2 and faster than you could sneeze they were both on the PS2.

Oh and for the record I have both consoles and I'm enjoying L+D as we speak.

FYI.

QUOTE(DuffMan @ Feb 16 2009, 04:33 PM) View Original Post
LCS and VCS were a little bit different, seeing as the Playstation and PSP are both Sony consoles, and porting PSP to PS2 was almost a copy + paste job. They didn't have a deal with Sony either so they could have released them onto the Xbox if they wanted, but that would have meant more than a simple copy + paste to port and Xbox ownership was very low, and they were already working on GTA IV. The situation now is the exact opposite: there is a deal, and porting from 360 to PS3 properly takes forever (if a developer takes shortcuts, you can tell). It won't be released on PS3, it would just take too long and end up losing Rockstar money after development costs and the legal costs after Microsoft sues them or they negotiate a price to get out of the contract. So please, stop banging on about it, it isn't going to happen.

GTA was originally on PC/PS, but PC sold the most copies I believe.



That should clear up what you said without me having to type it out.

Yes, because I am sure that Microsoft will hand over $50 Million and not read the contract through a few times...

haha! I dunno you know, they may have read that and they just market it as Exclusive and then 'on purpose but by mistake' leave out the "until 2011" or something like that. It's a tradition for marketing teams to just pick out the words from a contract that make it sound more apealing when they marketing it to customers.

However.. I'm completely sat on the fence about it all. I did think eventualy it would go to PS3 but Duffman makes superb points that has made me 50/50.


TBH, at the end of the day, every1 (including me) should STFU and sit it out. Xboxers should go back to playing L&D and PS3ers quit whining.

Doesn't make me mad, I'd never buy a content pack for a console game if it 'should' head to PC, just isn't worth it in my opinion. I know I've said that somewhere before... PC just offers more.

Also, I'd like to note regardless of the babble of people wanting this for PS3, Micro$oft are just dicks for paying that much money for exclusive content on such a highly anticipated series, in the end people should just hate MS in general... Gamers don't win when they do this. Rockstar wins however, they got paid... Now the tuckloads of cash they make became boatloads *wonders if people will pick up on what I'm talking about*. o_O

1. No 360's will RRoD downloading this, it isn't 2006. And Demo's are quite often between 700-1.2GB.

2. @Kuwong, it depends on the contractual agreement.

Trust me, anything that is called "exclusive" has a sell by date...

End of the day, and i say this for the second time... No one knows if TL&D will come out on other platforms except Rockstar themselfs and they do (& forgive me for saying this) lie occasionally. I'm on the fence, 50/50 about the whole thing... but at least i see that there are no official verdicts and i'm not just basing my opinion on gut feeling.


Comment by Pieface posted on 19th Feb 2009:

As Duffman has stated, which is the most likely reason for it never happening, is the fact its not as simple as placing the same thing onto the PS Store and then that is that. There will need to be a monumental change and it won't take a few days, weeks or maybe months.

I'm highly aware of how games are designed, scripted and structered. I also think that IF this comes out on any other platform other then Xbox, it will take at least 10months to convert. Then again, games are made on the PC/MAC that are then scaled down to work on consoles... so it would'nt be a switch from xbox to ps3 as such. Just because its a not a copy and paste job will not stop them doing it. GTA4 was a complete new engine, city and story but they didn't just go "oh it will take years.... fuck it" now did they? no, because their are bucks to be made here.

It's the same reason GTA VCS and LCS didn't make it onto the Xbox. Not because off some exclusivity thing, but just time and effort. By the time both the Xbox episodic contents (I doubt they'd screw Microsoft if they did it before) and then started to convert both the contents the next GTA will be out soon, or even out. So therefore less sales with the episodic content.

Comment by mobe posted on 19th Feb 2009:

The technical challenges of getting the L+D onto the PS3 are in no way beyond R* by any point of view. R* have a lot of studios round the world they can farm out work to (didn't R* San Diego do most of the brainstorming getting GTAIV to work on both consoles? ) and those studios have a lot of expertise between them.

Contrary to what a lot of people think MS won't have bought the copyright to the L+D. Meaning that given time R* can and will do exactly what they want with it in due course. Personally I have no doubt in my mind that this time next year PS3 owners will be playing it and I wouldn't be surprised at all if it were sooner.

I'm actually interested to see if the PS3 does get any DLC of its own. Sony said a while ago they had 'something up their sleeve' with regards to GTAIV and R*. It was probably bluff but it'll be interesting to see if R* do offer PS3 owners any sweetner for their version. It would certainly be in their financial interests to do so.

You are being so naive about extra content for ps3.

Correct me if i am wrong, but around about the same time VCS and LCS came out, Rockstar hadn't long released GTA:SA on xbox? The two smaller titles for PSP were basicly small money earners to cash in on a niche market... and then again another small money earner to simply put the same content onto a disk for the PS2. Granted, it would take longer to cross it over to the xbox platform and the fact that LCS and VCS never realy hit it off hugly its easy to see that the work/reward ratio is way off. However, the work to reward ratio for bringing GTA4 content to PS3 would be extremely poor business sense to miss.

Microsoft have exclusive rights to DLC made by rockstar and I GUARANTEE there is a time limit to how long they can have the content on their console exclusively.

Also, towards your statement that Rockstar will be working on their next game. The next GTA game you will see on the shelf (apart from them probably releasing DLC on disk in store too) will likely be featuring the GTA5 engine for a next gen console. So expect them to completely milk the GTA4 engine for the next 4 or so years.

I think there's a difference between a guarantee where a company hasn't paid much yes. But it is majorly different when there is $50 Million on the table. This has been the first GTA game that has had an exclusivity in it. The first 3 (Which many people thought were exclusive to the PS2) were either not out when the Xbox was around, or when it was first released. We won't fully know the situation for a couple of years at most. But personally I think that the $50 Million is a major factor. That could pay for most, if not all off the Episodic content straight away so they will not have made a loss before it is even released, but then they also get the profits off the Xbox Live.

I can't believe you're still debating this. How about we end it with:

"Well, I guess we'll see if the DLC ever comes to PS3... until then, stfu."

Agreed with Stoic, but there is no doubt in my mind that these two episodes will never come to the PS3 when that much money was involved.

However, that doesn't mean the PS3 wont have some kind of DLC in the future. It's nothing but wait and see.
