Take-Two, the parent company of GTA publisher/developer Rockstar, has revealed its line-up of games scheduled for release in 2008 and there's still no indication that PS3 will receive any GTA IV downloadable content.
But LA Noire indicated as PS3 exclusive
"with no indication that any extra Grand Theft gubbins is planned for Sony's console " doesn't mean there will be no downloadable content;I love the way the xbox fanboys spin the news,they are so jealous and unsecure,I feel sorry for them
I feel sorry for fanboys that bash other fanboys. Get off your podium.
Is it possible that the PS3 don't need the downloaded content because it will already come on the disc?
Remember guys, the PS3's BluRay version will have a TON more space for extra's while the 360's DVD will perhaps have the users download it?
360 is supposed to have "exclusive" content. I thought extra stuff usually comes a few months after a game's release. If PS3 includes extra content on disc, does that mean its coming later? I dont think so. For all the talk of Oblivion having extra content, Shivering Isles is yet to show up on PS3.
There will be Downloadable content on Both Platforms. They said it themselves in game informer. Whoever wrote this article is a dip.
I remember reading this myself in Game informer, you guys should really read the news, lol. Rockstars on words, "Both Platforms will have downloadable content". My stomach is hurting so bad from laughing at 360 fanboys. Their so far in denial that's it's gonna be painful to watch them suffer when that low quality machine of theirs falls short.
To: The guy below me,
LMAO are you serious, how many GB can a dvd hold again, lmao. You actually love compressed audio, LMAO, and you call your selves Next Gen players. Wait a tick, how many time have your console been in for repairs. HAHAHAHA!!!!
But seriously all jokes aside you guys need to get the facts straight. In 6 months time your denial phase will be over and then your gonna have to start actually thinking.
dream on sport! What's to deny about the 360? It's got more going for it
than your Blu-ray player son.
The article is indeed bullsh*t.
Reply to Vash' edit:
Well actually V ass, I bought mine in dec. 2005 and it's still going strong. Talking about storage room. Tell me, what game are you playing or movie are you watching on your beloved ps3 that actually needs and uses the storage potential of the blu-ray disc? Exactly, none, so STFU! Besides, by the time the space is really needed for games, we'll be a few years along and we'll use digital distribution.
And if that's the main argument you give me for ps3's superiority, it's pretty pathetic, so once again STFU!
In the end, both Xbots and Sony Cheerleaders will be playing the game. Who really cares who gets what for downloadable content? I sure don't. I'm sure both will get something the other won't, so there's no sense in bashing each other.
And why are you so hard up on uncompressed audio? Do you actually waste disc space on FLAC over MP3s because you really believe you hear much of a difference? It's like the 30fps VS 60fps argument. Most people can't tell the difference. More space != better. If you really think it does, I feel sorry for you.
When the Digital distribution gets moving, you will have to shell out more money to MS to use it. 20GB vs 60Gb? The black ones really are bigger. Go shell out more money to MS for a bigger HDD. So far, the games hindered by DVD? Tiger Woods 2007. Could not fit all the courses in High def, so it got 12 while the PS2 version gets over 20 courses for less money? How about gears? yea I said it. Imagine what that game would heve been on HD-DVD. Your 360 is handicapped out the gate. I had one, traded it for a Wii. Best deal yet and now my house seems cooler, all the candles don't melt when not lit.
Like I said, what game on the ps3 couldn't be done on a dvd? Don't gimme resistance couse we all know that was fluffed up to get as much gb's as possible. And even if space is becoming insufficient on dvd; tah dah!; 2 dvd-discs. Who gives a f*ck if you have to change the disc once in a while? I know I don't.
360 handicapped out the gate? Right chum. Ps3 cripled itself by putting a Blu-ray player in it. At $400 it would have sold a lot more and been on the market alot earlier than now. It's obvious ps3 is in a not so good position right now so you gimme YOUR money and to you too STFU!
any played any gta games and i dont want to.
So it doesnt bother me.
Edit: to people who disagreed with me. What is the point of disagreeing to my comment. i wasnt expecting it.
Yea i'm with you, I'm all for mindless fun every now and then, but GTA is a little too mindless....
I could just never get into the games. No depth at all.
it sound like you have a ps3
Why does it matter to you which console people have? People who own certain consoles don't have valid opinions? Please.
Seriously, not everyone who owns a system fits into some stereotypical niche. I've had a PS1, PS2, and love my PS3, but can't stand playing GTAs, Gran Turismos, Final Fantasies (or ANY RPG for that matter), and Metal Gear Solids.
You said it better than I did.
That's what I thought.
"Never played one, and I never want to."
Until I played San Andreas. Then everything changed. (until I played Halo 2 online, then everything changed again.)
im still waiting for n4g to start banning the fannboys who runn around like ass tards. they disagree with you cause they have nothing better to do. they will pull the same thing with me and only prove more that i am right , so i will have the last laugh.haha. haha. ha!
it'll be funny if the PS3 already has the content to begin with, coz the BD has more space, and 360 gets it as DLC, that would be hilarious
That makes more sense than anything I've heard about the new GTA yet!
Actually wasn't it Rockstar who said that it is harder to develop GTA 4 the same as PS3 version because not all versions of the 360 have hard-drives, so it would be less likely that 360 has DLC than the PS3.
the way the DLC(360) was described implied the ps3 would be missing it...so doubt its information that the ps3 already has
the 360 gets DLC and the PS3 has it on BR, will it be a free DL on XBL? Seeing how MS loves to charge for everything, They make it seem SOOOO hard to give away free content for games (Gears maps)when the developer wants to give it away. Or Over charge (Pacman CE, Marvel: UA extras, horse armor).
I ever picked on Bloodmask, just enjoy your 360 my friend, stop worrying so much about what the other guy is doing.
awww isn't that special, I try to make nice and someone actually has the audacity to disagree with that. this place is crazy...lol
No downloadable content for PLAYSTATION 3 version cause it will be appear in original version which the Xbox360 version must to download due to "DVD 9" ^^"
like i said b4 the information /content that will be up for download is "exclusive" to the 360 console ..now i think by the definintion alone it implies that the content cant be found any where else ..just maybe (sarcasm) and dont come at me with that weak fanboy crap cause by the end of the summer i;ll have a ps3 ..but you put me in the category of "wii hater" cuase that system is trash (overhyped) not that big a deal!
whats rhe use of DLC if the game itself is bad,let it release first,btw ps3 owners might get a exclusive gta4 home lobby,thats something no 360 owner can get
FREE ONLINE SERVICES ROCK!!!!
A once giant monopoly company like MicroSOFT can't even provide something free for it's gaming community, I actually fell sorry for those guys. A little.
Whatever content comes your way for GTA their gonna make you buy it. Look at Gears.
Thats why I sold my 360.
Geez stand up for yourselves.
i don`t care about that game, but just curiuos. =)
so, how many of you (GTA fans, which don`t have x360 and ps3) will buy x360 instead of ps3 for that content? =)
about gta, i don't like it, but maybe there is no need to download something that fits well on a br disc, but who knos, maybe i'm wrong, beacuse there are some things that can't be put right know on the disc......time will tel
I'm pretty sure there'll still be episodic content downloads
I am sure I read once that there will be DLC for both versions but that the DLC would be completely different on each platform.
This means that each platfrom can claim some level of exclusivity as each version will have access to unique content.
My money is on the 360 version (is it still a timed exclusive?) getting its DLC first with the PS3's following shortly after.
I can see the idiotic flamewar about who has better DLC....lol
Rockstar did admit that the were making downloable content for both and also said that they were making more "exclusive" downloadable content for the 360. So, I think I'll just get the 360 version - hey, gotta get the achievement points:)
You should never have to pay cash for online achievements points. I've learned.
How can anyone disagree with me when I'm only stating what Peter Moore at last year's E3 told everyone that M$ had entered into a deal to get "exclusive" downloadable contact in GTA4.
Plus, if I choose to buy the 360 version of the game for that content or if I chose to pay for it (if there is a fee - no one knows as of yet) then that is my choice. I not sure about anyone else but, I love unlocking achievements for bragging rights.
Also, the deal is; why should I wait to get - let's say for example Rainbow Six...on PS3 when I could have earlier on the 360 and get achievement points (bragging rights) for completing certain stages in the game. When I'm spending $60 as a consumer - why would I want to get a game later rather than sooner that doesn't have little incentives like achievement points. I'm getting a little bit more (however small) for my $60. I'm not a fanboy, I'm just looking for the best possible deal...especially since next-gen gaming isn't cheap!
I cant believe the mind set of some of these sony boys!! you guys think that rockstar would include the extra content on the PS3 JUST because it has more space(blu ray)WRONG. this is a way for them to make a 60 dollar game into a 70 -75 dollar game, by having you PAY for the extra content. an one things for sure, you guys better hope that the extra content sells well on the Ps3 because if it dont, you better believe there wont be much extra content coming you guys way in the future!!
But we've already seen evidence of the opposite. The Darkness and Stranglehold will both have extra content/media on the PS3 version at launch. And Obliviion was released much later, granted, but they didn't (as far as I know, I don't have the system or anything) lower the cost of downloading the content for the 360 version that came natively on the PS3 version. I'm not going to deny that a copmany will put out a game with the intent of updating it later, but if you have content already made, I can't see them not throwing it straight onto the disc. I think it's more along the lines of "we've made the game, what do we have to cut out?" rather than "we're finished. Anything else that we want to add just for the heck of it?"
Space wise, the PS3 version may not need to have the first question asked. They don't have to do any work retooling things, and since its there, they'll probably just release it anyways with the extra stuff, while the removed stuff has to be downloaded later by others. And keep in mind, if it's "extra" due to just not fittin with their original plans, it may very well be free.
the ps3 version didnt come with the expansion tho but ur still sorta right (for oblivion that is)
Ahh, it didn't? My mistake then.
came with the Knigts of the Nine expansion, but they never released Shivering Isles.
People think this is bad for SONY when in reality it's bad for Microshaft customers. Talk about screwing your customers out of every penny you can.
Half the Game = $60
DLC = More $
Lenght of $haft up their ass = 3ft...HAHAHAHHHAHHA
Wake up DIPSH!TS.
Ful Game and extras = $60 and no more $ to be spent.
EDIT@ HokieF4g bellow.....It's not Rockstar that will shaft their customers, it's M$, and as far as me saying the things I say,...TOO FUKING BAD. Quit trying to be such a kiss ass trying to win your little $ for the June prizes for being the most liked comment poster, and get off my nuts. If you don't like it, IGNORE ME.
@ace385....you couldn't be further from the truth. The reason why my comments bug you LOSERS so much is just that because YOU have no lives.
@achira...Your tha man bro, hahahah...I've been a fan of you too for a while bro. You and a few other "one bubble crew" members out there. We seem to be the only one's on this site with a sence of humor. Keep it up bro.
@Babylonian...Yes, one more that actually gets it. Thanks bro. I've tracked a few people myself, but just like you I'm not sure how it works either. If anyone would like to explain, that would be great. Thanks in advance.
Do you actually believe that they will charge money for content on the 360 that will be free on PS3? I'm sorry, but that's just ridiculous. There is no way Rockstar would do that.
Why do you feel the need to add comments like "length of shaft up..."??? How old are you, 12? I bet you whine that you only have one bubble because of "xbots", right? Maybe it's because you use juvenile comments like that instead of well thought out remarks.
Thanks for the reminder. I get so mad at myself for letting rude, immature, and angry people such as him get to me.
I had no idea that there was a contest to be most liked, thanks for letting me know! You seem to have a lot of anger in you, please calm down. Do you really need to curse in all caps at me? I'm not "on your nuts", and have no interest in being there.
Also, please explain how Microsoft is going to hurt their customers, if content is held back from the game, that is Rockstar's decision.
hokie, just ignore him. He is a person who has no friends in real life, goes to this website 6-10 hours a day to make fun of the 360 and has no friends here, has a ps3 and has no friends on that, and to be honest...sucks at life.
i am a fan of bill gates.
I love Bill Gates comments. He just joking around, don't take it personal.
Hahaha you crack me up man really. I tracked you but I have no idea how that works.
I really didn't take his comments personally, I just think his foul language and bad attitude are ruining this site. Good, heated debates are fine, bad language and insulting names such as "hokief2g" are not. That is not an example of a good sense of humor.
You deserve more bubbles. But xbox fans just love to pay M$ and will be angry if you remind them about it.
people just love speculating cr@p so quick these days on the net for the sake of news
Well, it's all about getting hits on your website right? Rumors and speculation seem to attract the crowds (this site is a great example). It's sad, but seems to be true.
Im getting sick of these misleading headlines. The have not confirmed PS3 downloadable content, which means they havent stated either way.
There is absolutly no reason why the PS3 version couldnt have downloadable content, but we will have to wait and see.
Its getting to a point now where 8/10 articles posted on this site are just total BS! So i think its time for me to say farewells. Goodbye to the good, the bad, and the ugly posters.
Ouch, this is just going to be another reason to get the 360 version because even though they said the 360 was holding the game back it sounded like they were going to hold the entire game back so it'll be the same game on each platform. So all this does is tip the scales towards 360.
i literally cant wait for this game. i really dont care about DLC either, im sure the main game will suffice for me.
btw captain tuttle every time i read your posts i imagine a scuba diver. is that a scuba diver in your avatar?
Man is it the new fad to try ot justify the Blue ray player at every turn???
Like honestly think about it, do you think MS didn' go out and ask developers "hey are you going to need more then a dvd or two?" My guess is they saw most people wouldn't and as compression tech gets more and more advanced we'll see bigger and bigger games.
what like the Dreamcast.
Peter Moore was behind that one too.
you make your self sound dumber and dumber everyday.
keep up the good work.
because it all will fit on the disc.
nice try bloodass.
There is no reason to be rude.
Also i'd like to point this out. The content is new stuff, its stuff they're releasing like they do for Sam and Max, small chunks of new story to progress a plotline or add new features, its not stuff that didn't make it in.
why are ps fanboys so stupid? they keep dreaming and making up excuses that the content will come out on ps3. their only lieng to themselves. shure both of them will have downloadable content...but that dosent mean the only content they make is the 2 episodes!ps3 users will get the crappy downloadable things like mabe a new car or cloths. but as for the 360 they will exclusively get new missions + the content that is shared for ps3 and 360.
If any of you didnt know already gta4 is being built on the ps3. They stopped building it on the 360 when the had that trouble with lack of HDD. Meaning it will be a better game on ps3, it will run smoothly and ps3 owners dont give a sh!t about content. You xbots play it on your 360 (reloading the disk every hour while we play it on a good piece of hardware)....
actually your wrong. about 2 weeks ago when rockstar invited people from magazines to have a 8 minute glimpse at the game they all said that it was running on a xbox 360 dev kit. i dunno about your common sence but if you were creating a game wouldnt u want it to look and run the best it possibly can? well obviously they chose to use the 360 dev kit instead of ps3 for a reason!
I hate this about all of the next gen games the trojan horse effect. Who knows if it was suppose to be there anyway and they are making you pay for it..for ex GeOW that all that exra stuff should have been included in that 10 hour game..
At least it had online gaming included, that's more than you can say about the jap version of Motorstorm. Talk about getting cheated. I don't see any current Ps3 games filled with more content than 360 games.
The best GTA4 version is for the 360?
You Sony fanboys know what sold the PS2, right?
Yup, GTA... Thus all those gamers that like GTA want the best, the most content, they'll suck it up.
They'll jump in, and get the 360 & version
@ BubblesDAVERAGE (above)
You know they only used 6.25 GB with Gears of War, right?!?!
SO that's still 2.25 GB they could fill with extra content. They just didn't had more, because MS wanted them to launch Gears before Christmas. To sell like they did and push the 360
so, in essence they deliverately held back the development just to get the game out for christmas then?
come on, while I did enjoy gears, it was incredibly short, which indicates to me that maybe a DVD just can't hold the data for such a graphically intensive games like gears and have it as a 30-49 hour game too.
i have more than 500 hours of gampeplay in gears...and more 500 to come weeee.
as far as gta 4 comes, i don't really mind the extra content, even if it has extra content on the xbox 360,we will probably have to pay for it...i'm poor T_T. But i'm guessing they'll make the two versions similar.
I am assuming that your 500 hours are in total, including multiplayer?
What if the person playing doesn't like online play? What then? I generally do not like to play through story modes (other than resi evil) more than once - which IMO, reduces gears to barely an 8 hour game.
im getting tired of these BS stories....so to save me trouble of having to post and deal with little kid fanboys, im going to look for the word "confirmed" in the title of these types of articles.
Fix the incorrect (fanboy) article title. Complete flame-bait.
