Official: Exclusive GTA IV Content for 360 not PS3 confirms Take-Two

A Take-Two spokesperson has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that the episodic content planned for Grand Theft Auto IV will be exclusively released for the Xbox 360.

Talk of an exclusive deal began following the release of Take-Two's Q2 financial report on Tuesday. The report stated that the episodic content would be released on 360 during the 2008 fiscal year - with no mention of PlayStation 3.

Now a company representative has told GI.biz, "The Grand Theft Auto IV episodic content is exclusive to Xbox 360."

Hopefully it will be priced right.

DADO3752d ago

It is not good. It does not matter if it is exclusive to 360 or PS3 it should be included with the game. Microsoft and Sony just want to make the extra bucks.

MADGameR3752d ago

Its coming for both 360 and PS3.

eLiNeS3751d ago

but the Xbox 360 will have Achievement's as well. Take that PofS 3 fanboys!

Hopefully its not what PS3 will have already on BluRay ; )

Wow, Exclusive content ONLY for 360 AND La noire. Great time to be a 360 gamer. If rockstar could add some form of online multiplayer on Live, that would be the icing on the cake.

La noire was always gonna be multi by the way, with the state take-2 is in they wouldn't make a big enough profit from the PS3 version only.
I am NOT flaming. So don't get your fanboy panties in a twist.

They said both versions were likely, but so far we have no concrete confirmation. Lets not get all jumpy just yet. But likely means more maybe then not.

Circa243752d ago

And LA Noire?

Did I miss something? When was that announced multi-platform? By Take-two, mind you...

And unless you personally work for Take-two, you're all-knowing abilities about multi-platform tendencies mean nothing.

BubblesDAVERAGE3752d ago

That a ps3 exclusive...and regardless of who gets the epsodic content ps3 will get something no matter how much money MS throws at them

Lucidmantra3752d ago

you are right you will get a Bluray case with a copy of GTA IV in it... and after that the EXCLUSIVE 360 episodic content will not be included (based on a truely exclusive or timed exclusive model...whichever Microsoft pays for..) Take 2 is in the major major hurt locker and they are doing these things for a reason. Look for the high possibility of Take 2 to be absorbed/bought outright/ or them to sell some of their studios or OIP in the next year or 2.

TheXgamerLive3752d ago (Edited 3752d ago )

Mind you, a few of you ps3 fans went ahead and started talking as if it was exclusive but it was never ever mentioned as exclusive, only as multi.
But usually they never mentioned a platform at all, just that's it is coming to next gen. So ps fans come back to reality, LA NOIRE is and was never ever exclusive or even timed exclusive except in your own minds.

GTA IV: It was mentioned from the very beginning that there would be exclusive episodic downloadable content for the Xbox 360 on "LIVE".

Hopefully this downloadable content doesn't mean the game will feel incomplete when it ships.

SlaughterMeister3752d ago

I have been a loyal GTA fan ever since GTA3, I bought Vice City and San Andreas on the first day they came out. I own LCS and VCS for my PSP.

And now because Rockstar wants to get greedy, I have to do without because I'm a PlayStation fan?

I bought my f*cking PSP so I could play GTA on it!

This better get fixed quick, I don't want to play GTA on 360. I hated the control config they had on the original Xbox, and I DO NOT want to play with those same retard trigger-as-the-gas-pedal controls.

I hope that they reveal this to be because they can't fit the entire game on a regular DVD, so PS3 doesn't have episodic content because they already have the whole thing.

This is retarded, I'm getting sick of this damn fanboy crap, and now the developers are in on it.

Xi3752d ago

playing custom musics = <3

MoonDust3752d ago

By MSFT. What did you expect?
Maybe the PS3 will get other content.

Lucidmantra3752d ago

you mean the same trigger as the gas pedal setups that 90% of the other driving games use???

Also... Money talks and BS walks... Microsoft made a huge errort when they were pitched GTA III and they passed on it because they wanted to keep a cleaner image for the xbox. Hardcore gaming but not Hardcore hooligan/gangsta gaming. They paid for it when GTA blew up. They are locking something down with money that will only be available to the 360. These are the ways a company gets people to say welll... I can get it for the PS3 but the 360 version has exclusive things that the PS3 will not <and on through the other factors for that gamer>

Being able to say ONLY ON XBOX or ONLY ON PS3 is what they are looking for then they pay out cash for exclusive content.

Fart_Bubbles3752d ago

microsoft did pass on GTA:3 which only proves they don't know their ass from a hole in the ground when it comes to gaming. Sony took a chance on it, turned into a beast of a title on their platform and now the little microsuck whores come throwing money at it so they can push their designed in a hurry, abysmal quality controlled, console that not only red rings on people but scratches discs in many instances.

what most people don't realize is that Take-two is bleeding money like a stuck pig. Layoffs everywhere, last management structure got thrown out on its ass. Which now smells of them going to Sony asking for HUGE subsidies,Sony telling em that the consoles launch timeframe would not give them enough of a user base to bail out take two thus told em to go ahead and take Microsoft's money.

If none of that happened I doubt you would be seeing any form of GTA:4 on the scratchbox until the end of 2008.
