Rockstar Games Announces Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony for Download on Xbox LIVE« and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Available on Disc for Xbox 360« this Fall

Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce the fall release of both the second episode of Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony - exclusively for download on Xbox LIVE« online entertainment network, and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which will include both episode one The Lost and Damned, and episode two The Ballad of Gay Tony together on a single disc exclusively for Xbox 360« video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

"Liberty City is the most vibrant game world we've created yet. The episodic structure has allowed us to interweave stories, gameplay and atmosphere in a whole new way," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The team at Rockstar North have yet again surpassed themselves, and made something that is both epic and very innovative. This episode's focus on high-end night life contrasts with the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned, whilst giving us a lot of new gameplay possibilities."

Grand Theft Auto IV's second downloadable episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka "Gay Tony"), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City delivers two games on one disc - the all-new episode The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first episode, The Lost and Damned - together on disc for the first time - for Xbox 360 for $39.99 and will not require a copy of the original Grand Theft Auto IV to play.

The Ballad of Gay Tony will release on Xbox LIVE this fall for $19.99 or 1600 MS points and requires players to have Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE membership to download.

This is exciting news. Is Gay Tony the one you kill in the 69th St. Diner? Or was that another random gay?


Comment by TwoFacedTanner posted on 26th May 2009:

French Tom is who you're thinking about.

Yea he was from Lost and Damned it was on the diamond missions. I forgot the name of. Gay Tony and Luis try to make a deal with Johny to buy the diamonds.


Comment by TwoFacedTanner posted on 26th May 2009:

He was also in the original GTA4.

Niko and Packie are doing a deal with Gay Tony and Luis at the water treatment facility and Bulgarin busts it up.

ahh, the gracie/diamond exchange... i sorta vaguely remember him now... thankfully i am near that point in my current game... i'll pay attention when i get to this mission... but, i remember luis from the meseum piece mission and my guess is this game will continue the never-ending quest for the diamonds i am sure... GTAIV seems to be based around those damn diamonds...

the funny thing is, i've never played L&TD but, i know the diamonds show up again during those missions... yet, i recall hearing on the radio that a bum found the stash of diamonds at the end of IV... so, don't spoil the L&TD for me, i just assumed the diamonds were a done deal after IV ended...

i guess not...

TL&D wasn't a continuation.
It ran parallel to GTA4's original story.

Pretty much GTA4 from a different point of view.

I'd definitely say so!
I hope we find out what becomes of those damn diamonds.

Lot of death around those things.
And to be honest, when that guy dropped them off that bridge thing I was soooo pissed. I shot him for like 15 minutes.


Comment by bOnEs posted on 26th May 2009:

maybe gay tony finds the bum in his club throwing around money laugh.gif... and more death ensues...


Comment by alooper21 posted on 26th May 2009:

news on the radio were that the driver was to open a gun shop somewhere in san andreas (or was it vice city?) after finding the diamonds in the back of his truck.

I'd like to see the amount of people who aren't going to buy or download this simply because it has the word gay in the title and it'll make them gay if they buy it.

Actually when I first saw the new logo I thought it was a late (or very early) April fools joke.

But the LFL bit isn't suprising.

Looking back at the chronology of past games, Vice City would make more sense to be done next. And it wouldn't be GTAV, it would be GTAIV: Vice City.

you know how it is with these mission releated news on the radio, you get to hear them or not, or you hear them briefly while on the run, but i was just pointing out what the guy who found the diamonds was to open a gun shop somewhere. and i only played the story once
as for that topic you pointed me to, i suspected those diamonds would be part of the story since i saw them at the beginning, rockstar pushed them too close to our eyes, diamonds are money and gta involves lots of money. but speaking of the begining, i'd really be quite dissapointed if we don't hear something about niko's friend-from-off-the-boat in the future. i forgot the guy's name, but he seemed to be the kind that handle things well considering the tone in he's voice and he's overall tonus, niko's type. so i'd really like to know where that guy is heading (i don't think he appears elswhere in gta4 and i won't get to play the episodes unless they are released for the pc).

That hardly calls for being stupidity. It wasn't completely on topic, but it was based on the speculation of where the diamonds have gone next.
