Confirmed today at GDC, Xbox 360 owners of GTA IV can expect to see additional content sometime this fall. No information regarding pricing or content has been announced yet.
FAR earlier than I expected
Yea right, you launch a game in the Spring and the content doesn't come until fall? For the people who would still be playing that would be a benefit, but that exclusive content will hardly dictate sales. GTA4 will sell better on 360 because it has a larger install base not because of the exclusive content.
There are many reasons why the 360 version will sell more
, but it isn't.
maybe one day, they will let people know what it is.
The link to the article doesn't seem to work... It just gives a page with "Error" on it...
Ah, the link works now :)
& once again most of these posts belong in The Open Zone I thought The Gamer Zone was heavily moderated ?
so ms has gears 2 fable2 this gta stuff and some other games 4 fall 2008. oke
GTA IV looks just more graphical then GTA SA on PC -_-
I can't understand how people can put a negative spin on downloadable content for the Xbox. Mind you, most likely I will not be able to enjoy it, as I do not own an xbox myself, but come on, more is good. Who knows, maybe by then I'll have an Xbox to enjoy it.
Playing more missions is not fun for me but for them it might be fun.
sony needs to buy dlc for ps3 or ps3 version will be really sad, come on sony you can do it!! ps3 fans should boycott ps3 version of gta4 if it has no dlc
I think a boycott would be a little rash; the game will be good even without two missions. I've been wondering though, can this really be seen as bonus content? Or is it more likely content that was in the original version that was stripped from the disc thanks to a heft payment?
yeah man its like ms is paying for missions and stuff that should come already on the BLUE RAY rockstar is already making the dlc so it will mostly be done when the game comes out but they are saving it for xbox live dlc, not really fair to PS3 boycott
By boycotting the ps3 version, it only reaffirms what MS wants to happen. Paying for exclusive content is setting a horrible precedent. If paying for exclusive content results in higher sales, then this act will only become more routine. On can see where this slippery slope goes. Maybe Sony and Nintendo can purchase the content for some games, but they can't keep up with MS in all games.
I must rush out and buy a 360 so I can achieve: <sarcasm>'The Ultimate Experience'</sarcasm> Rofl=)
Ultimate experience or not... More content is more content.. and what make things worst is: not available on the PS3... any fan of the game and not the console.... will not mind the extra content.
In Fall 2008, the Xbox 360 proposition will be worthless compared to the redesigned PS3 with MGS4, LBP, GTA4, Killzone, GT5, Resistance 2, White Knight Story and FFXIII almost on there on the gates.
MGS4 you have a point KZ2 and R2 lose to Gears 2. WKS could be countered w/ Infinite Undiscovery/lost oddysey LBP loses in User created content to the new XNA FFXIII won't be out till 09 possibly 2010. Gt5 has decent match in Forza 2. and even with all those GTA is a bigger franchise then most of those combined and exclusive content will go a long way.
Oh yeah, you know those racing games- they really push consoles. Killzone is pre-rendered crap. The first Resistance fell short. Lots of smoke, no fire. But hey, at least your PSFree is good for watching HD movies!

I thought the DLC was going to be free?
Could of swore I read that someplace quite a while ago.
Am I mistaken?
Well we are talking Microsoft here, and we all know they love giving away free stuff when there's a dollar to be made. All the extra purchases needed to make the 360 wireless and with a harddrive were free so why not this right?
GTA4 DLC & Gears of War 2!!! *Whew*!!
Guys it'll be out in october for like 400MS Points, just watch.
all the news links coming from kombo makes me wanna say today is 360 day.
Must be a holiday
i swear i heard somewhere that it'd be realased right after the game launches
I want the extra content - but not at any price. Mindedon you make a valid point. If we pay (and it will be at least 1000 points) will it just encourage Microsoft to charge us more often for extra content? I genuinely havent decided which version to go for. :(
i do not believe DLC will push the sales of this game on the X360.
me personally, i'm getting it for the X360 versus my PS3 because my brother owns an X360.
that's always the main reason why i choose the 360 multiplats over the PS3. not because of DLC.
For all the complainers about the DLC, the DLC is equal to San Andreas/Vice City, that's an incredibly amount of content that's like 2 entire exclusive games. GTAIV DLC - When MS says exclusive, they mean that no other system can have DLC content for GTAIV - It will be bigger than a lot of people think. GTA3 Vice City and San Andreas were basically expansions of GTA3. Think of the DLC that way. We are talking major expansion for GTAIV - No price has been discussed yet. It’s up to Rockstar on whether or not they will charge for it - If successful, DLC may be the new way to deliver GTA expansions
