According to upcoming cover from French PC Jeux magazine, GTA IV The Lost and Damned is heading to PC. (See cover's bottom for announcement)
...and? GTAIV was a terrible game, GTAIII, vice city and SA all brought something new, GTAIV was the only one of the 4 that actually took features away, keep the DLC...
well since it didnt sell on the 360 maybe it'll sell better on PC and maybe at the end its coming to the PS3
And a dollar short. In the end, waiting over 18 months for the full number of DLC packs to hit the market is pathetic and completely destroyed the basics of DLC. They should have followed the DLC layout of Fallout 3 and released the DLC as fast as possible. Oh well, the base game was not that good anyway so any DLC is bound to be equally as bad.
So the odds of seeing the DLC on the PS3 has increased? I don't think the DLC will sell that well being late, but if Episodes of Liberty City does see a 2010 release for the PS3, it will nevertheless strengthen the solid PS3 lineup for next year.
...is suddenly a Microsoft exclusive. Oh well, good for me and my kickass PC.
Im waiting on PS3 version.
I just hope we get gay tony so we can base jump
GTAIV was a terrible game, so? More content is always better, there are people that like the Franchise enough to support this game, even if it's [email protected]
It's okay, it's a "Microsoft exclusive" lol
Yeah PC gamers have known about this for 6 weeks now. Since the last patch Rockstar added the Lost and Damned achievements to the PC version. They also changed some of the game files in preparation for the DLC and added a new command line "-uninstall content" which apparently "uninstalls GFWL in game content". If you then factor in the complete silence from Rockstar (ie no denial) and the fact that if anyone mentions the PC TLAD achievements on Rockstars site they get threatened, there is only one conclusion you can come too. I used to be a massive GTA fan but right now the way Rockstar has treated the PC community makes me want to tell them where they can shove their DLC. The PC version of GTA 4 is horrendously broken and I am not about to give this childish company any more of my money.
No surprise then. Next it'll be Halo 3 and then just about every 360 exclusive will be available on the PC.
except pc gamers couldnt careless about gaylo or any other milkbox exclusive for that matter.
haha, what do you mean apparently were jealous of alan wake, all I can say is thank god a shooter lite/action game doesn't taint the pc games library
So 360 exclusivity is over?
there's was nothing all that 'exclusive' about the 360 to begin with, unless you count Halo 3 and Gears 2. I have a gaming PC and a PS3 and I definitely don't feel like I'm missing out at all. People gaming only on the 360 are the ones missing out.
Well i won't be buying this one, because i already have it for 360, but i'll buy Gay Tony for PC if it comes out. I loved GTA4, own all 3 versions, PC, PS3 and 360, PC version, despite it being a pretty bad console port is still the best version.
Is this for real man I love GTA 4 on PC
How can you say that, you're doing yourself and all pc gamers a disservice by supporting god awful ports, that game is probably the worst game i've bought in 10 years, no exaggeration, terrible abomination of a game, I don't know what kind of retarded thread hierarchy the programmers used, but a game as basic as gtaiv requiring a heavily OC i7 to remove the cpu bottleneck? that's insane, I can play RTS games like supcom with 200 units on screen and get better frames. Not to mention the graphics are the worst of any multiplat i've ever played on pc in the last 3 years
You don't need an I7 to play this game I played it on a dual core nvidia 9300 gt first it was laggy but I downloaded the patches then I was able to play it on high - medium settings with the shadows off but i was able to complete the game and I enjoyed the game
I know you don't NEED an i7, but i'm running a c2q and a gtx280 with 4 gig of ram and considering i run almost every other game at 60 frames with 8aa, i can safely say that gtaiv is a terrible port because I don't think it ever gets 60 frames, and it's cpu limited not gpu
dude graphics are not important to me because what Im after is the story not the visuals of the game but sometimes people or gamers and even I myself was blinded by the graphics and they forget about the story that is why they say it is an bad game because of bad graphics but this is only my opinion.
lol,IT FLOPD SO HARD ON BETABOX THEY DECIDE TO PRIG IT PC AND SOON PS3.
I think you might be trying just a liiiiiiiiitle bit too hard, maybe take a Valium or some Ritalin as the case warrants
so exclusive content has become console exclusive content. Good. Lost and the Damned is fun especially if you enjoyed GTA IV. I dont know if there is substantional proof that shows when a game or content goes from exclusive to console exclusive that begins a slippery slope to multiplatform. Yet I do seem to recall this being the case for Fallout 3, or did the dlc for that come out on the 360 and PC at the same time? Anyway I hope it goes multiplatform and that the PS3 only folks get a chance to play it. Before you jump down my throat please see this other comment I made where I defined my terms. Thank you. http://n4g.com/NewsCom-4474...
Finally! I am not gonna comment on how 'GTA IV was' or how 'it would have been' right now, am just happy that being a PS3 and PC owner, I'll get to play the DLC. Awesome news! Microsoft never disappoints! I just hope they let Epic port Gears of War 2 on PC.
Thats what they and Microsoft get for being greedy by making silly exclusivity deals on such a huge multi-platform game series that originally made it's name on a previous platform. In the long run it would have benefitted Rockstar NOT to have made the DLC excluisve and to have released DLC episodes for the PC and PS3 at the same time as the 360, because they would have least made much more money in sales profits. But they chose to ice out the PS3 and now nearly 2 decades later release it on the PC. Take-Two have already expressed the DLC episodes dissapointing performance, and it's no surprise because in eyes of many fans the original main GTA game was a major letdown anyway, even though it was still a good game to play. Plus they left it's release date way too late to create any kind of hype or anticipation for it. The whole thing was totally stupid to begin with. Think about it: * Half of all GTA 4 copies sold on consoles were on the PS3. PS3 and 360 GTA 4 sales were about 50-50 so why leave out the PS3 for DLC? Thats like ignoring HALF the market and HALF your fan base! Even worse when you consider GTA made it's name on Playstation console brand anyway. * The PC gaming community also has a substantial GTA following amongst it's members, as with demonstrated with the huge GTA modding scene. They initally ignored that for DLC too, thats another market percentage and fan base ignored. I think this is a sign of desperation from Rockstar and Take-Two to recoup some lost potential profit and credibility. For a $50 million check, Rockstar decided to ignore more than half it's fan base and deny them episodic content and thus, lose a lot of fan's credibility, loyalty and respect. To make things worse, GTA 4 was not the amazing game it should have been. I sure hope Rockstar enjoyed that $50 million, because it looks like it's caused them to loose a lot more than they have actually gained. As for Microsoft, they must be feeling very silly and embarrassed now. For all the noise and hype Microsoft made about this exlcusive DLC making the 360 GTA version better than the PS3, their money and greed got them nowhere in then end. Ok, I know at first it seemed like a good business move from MS, as they wanted to steal the GTA limelight away from Sony. But what happened in the end was that - GTA 4 sold the same amount of copies on both the PS3 and 360, the DLC episodes clearly did not sell as well as they had hoped for and Rockstar have obviously used that money to fund other game projects for other consoles, eg. Agent on the PS3. This will teach them all a real hard lesson, especially Rockstar. Next time release the DLC on both consoles and the PC AND not too late either.
I thought MS paid 50 million to keep the DLC on the 360?
Umm hello who do you think makes all the OS for the PCs with the name Windows techincally it is still exclusive to Microsoft if the DLC does not port over to the PS3
Hey now all you guys who argue about MS games that are on PC that arent REALLY exclusive because there on PC...can play LOST AND THE DAMNED on there gaming PC Rigs :)
Awesome. Hurry up & get BoGT out, too. Yeah, when the game first came out, it ran like crap, even on my i7 920 rig. Now, though, it runs smooth, looks far better than the console versions, & has some pretty great mods. Personally, I didn't mind them scaling down the insanity a bit, but I understand why a lot of people were irritated that it wasn't more like the previous entries. I still found the game to be very entertaining, & I love the DLC.
Too late, my money goes to other games that came in the right time
and get both for cheaper. they should release both at the same time, who wants to pay now and pay again when gay tony is released?!
I can't stand, Bush.
