The latest gossip on Grand Theft Auto IV DLC, a Harry Potter Lego game, and LittleBigPlanet as we finally start our holiday shopping.
People will buy GameStop's GTAIV DLC simply because they have store credit to use up.
Hrmm Good Idea I still have 30$ on my card, haha
I wonder why they'd sell it through retail as opposed to just letting people download it through an online service. Retailing it seems to be just adding another layer to the process that could be avoided...unique download token or no it's not like you aren't going to have to drive home and download it anyway.
Well not every 360 owner has a Gold Subscription (about 8mil of them i think). MS are rumoured to have paid $50mil for the DLC, if that's accurate, they need to maximise their potential customer base. I think the code is a great idea, it opens up the customer base to those with silver accounts, or even no internet as long as they have a friend who has. Their costs will be minimal as they're not using a DVD or Case, less graphics (point of sale) required. It seems a perfectly logical move for them to make to me. Especially when the DLC is predominantly single player orientated.
Isn't there a cap on file size for LIVE downloads?
Maybe Rockstar wants to do this to see if they could possibly release a retail (physical media) version of this for PS3 owners or something (just a guess). No one said Rockstar couldn't do that. Of course, no one actually said Rockstar couldn't give PS3 owners and GTA4 DLC or episodes, yet people STILL think that, so expect people to try to tell me that some catch-22 contract caught that retail possibility along with everything in existence, as well.
You'd be stupid not to make a Harry Potter lego game. Cha-ching.
Agreed. I'd buy it...for the kids, of course. :)
Off topic. Episode your avatar is taken from is Amazing! LOL > http://www.southparkstudios...
I'm surprized it didn't happen sooner...
Yup, it's a personal favorite of mine, as well. (Heroin game, LOL). My avatar was DL'd from the South Park Studios site, so the quality is a bit grainy. I need to play with it a bit to get it better. My old avatar (also Stan) was pulled from the John Edward episode with VLC's snapshot function. Back on topic: I would also welcome the often-rumored Lego Halo.
LEGO High School Musical? (if that ever happens, shoot me)
