Guardian writes: It allegedly cost Microsoft around 50million USD for Xbox 360 exclusivity rights but the upcoming downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV sounds promising. Yes the hype has started for the Lost and the Damned.
im looking forward to this downloadable content :)
A must have. I did like GTA 4 so I'm going to get this. Those of you who did not like GTA4 (most PS3 users) stop whining about this how lame and bad this will be. It's for 360 so let it be. Just stick with Killzone2 while the hype lasts.
Yeah looking forward to all those motorcycle missions! LOL right... vehicle i most hate and ill have to be using it in most if not all those missions ? HELL NAH
"Those of you who did not like GTA4 (most PS3 users)" I did not like it. Why do you attack PS3 users suddenly. NEARLY ALL of my friends who played it from XBOX AND PS3 did not like it. The game was just not that fun.
This isn't a 'game'. A game insists that it is packaged as such, a disc or a free lance version like HALO:ODST. HALO:ODST is STILL DLC/XP. This is no exception. GTA4 Lost and Damned is not a game, as you require the original GTA4 disc to play it. Simply DLC.
How can someone disagree with this comment!? Its true! If u need a GAME disc to play the DLC then its an expansion DLC and not a game! Will it not require the disc to play? o.O
exactly my point I brought in the other post.. since you need to GTA4 game disc for this to be place..it's nothing more than a Expansion Pack...coming in the form of DLC... BTW what Hype....haven't heard ne thing about this game other than it suppose to be 20hrs long , which in reality the actual game is about 7-8 HRS long with the other hrs being spent trying to find easter eggs.........
Not a 'game'? Thats one of the dumbest things I have heard on here. And this is N4G for chrissakes...
its not a game? its a freakin video "game" expansion
GTA4 came out last yr. What you have here is Downloadable content. Its just being called a game to up the value in the eyes of the consumer. If you can play it without GTA4 in your console then you can call it a sort of spin off title. But as long as GTA4 needs to be in your console its DLC
If all of the above agree, where the disagrees coming from?! Im just curious! If i Disagree i usually bring my argument to the table! The Ddisagreeers (lol) couldnt prove me wrong? I dont own the truth, ya know!
it's not a game because you need to own the original to play it i.e. it's an expansion pack. for me a game is an item that works standalone without the need for the atcual full game. just like the recent mgs lbp expansion is an expansion pack and not a game. semantics really. before everyone rush in to disagree, i am not saying anything about whether the dlc is good or bad.
"Simply DLC" I agree, but can I just add that this is probably the 'biggest' DLC game add-on to ever be released.
Is this all PS3 owners have to keep telling themselves to sleep at night? LMAO.. Here let me join in... It's Not a Game... It's Not a Game.. Umm..Because you need the original disc to play... No duh..Why let potential consumers bypass the ORIGINAL game..and only pay $20..to play the exclusive content only... If this SAME exact content was debut release was on the Wii and the PSP..Rockstar could have sold it at full price with a couple of tack-on multi-player elements..Instead...as the normal non-fanboy goggle wearing human can see..these guys are CHANGING what DLC is all about..not some extra Street Fighter level on LBP..a whole new plot and game with the same engine..oh my bad..and we get another one after this too...I'm in
i own GTA 4 for the xbox 360. RIGHT NOW, don't think many ps3/xbox owners will care about dlc. many players haven't even completed the original game so i doubt they would stump up for the dlc. hence it isn't an insecurity issue. HOWEVER, by offering exclusively dlc for the xbox GTA 4, MS made sure that people who couldn't decide which version of the original to get were more likely to be tempted by the xbox version. this was the main reason why ms went dlc exclusive. GTA4 was recognised as a big franchise with a strong ps3 affinity. MS wanted to prise this ps3 affinity by giving a carrot for people to buy the xbox version.
NEWS FLASH - the way to make hype, is to post news articles stating that there is hype. oooo i feel the hype now! LOL But yeah, i was probably the most addicted gamer before GTA IV came out, i had cleared a few days out of work just so i could play it. Every SCRAP of information i could get on it was like heaven, refreshing gta4.net a million times lol Then i get this piece of crap, it was NOTHING like what they promised, i thought euphoria was going to change the way i thought about games you know. MASSIVE dissapointment. Now a biker expansion pack? 8 hours long? geez give me a break.
Tell me about it. The game was mediocre at best with a very undeserving hype. Still didn't stop me from trading it in the first couple of days lol. The media hypes up horse sh!t and the 360 loyalists (stock brokers) gobble it up.
"Now a biker expansion pack? 8 hours long? geez give me a break." pardon me, but isn't 8 hours considered normal length for a FULL single player game? I completed cod4, heavenly sword, uncharted, gears of war and many other titles in under 8 hours, all fantastic games and none of them felt short at all. 8 hours for an expansion is perfectly acceptable.
LMAO The xbot lemmings eat this sh!t up with a spoon. Looks like Halo Wars will be the only real game for the 360 this Spring
how's 3rd place treating you? it's amusing keep it up :)
you don't like spoons? ok, try this instead: http://www.journalnow.net/i... cool thing is it also works with tears
I don't see much hype for it. I think most people have had their fill of GTA IV.
The theme is "and so it begins" as in now that info has just now been revealed here comes the hype which is really a handful of impressed previewers and not real unfounded hype.
why did u decide to finally lay the Ultimate troll account..to rest..? can't stand being in the one bubble gang ? Edit: @Volcane my comment was directed at.."Why Dis'..not you...
I have no idea who POG is, I'm just posting what I think. It has been a long time since GTA IV came out, I played it for about a month completed it, and enjoyed it, I just don't see this add-on content adding much to the game, and with so many other great complete games coming out soon, I would rather put my time and money into them than an expansion. @Danja - Ok
Will you stop with the POG crap lol.
i've been on this site for 2 years using only one account... nice try though POG...
Try to stay on topic or go to the other zone. GTA4 DLC should be welcome to any GTA fan. I don't think we have seen hype though.
GTA4 DLC ..should be welcome to any 360 owner who actually enjoyed GTA4.... not to any GTA fan becuz im a GTA fan but I wouldn't buy this , after the mess that GTA4 turned out to be.
GTA made the playstation its alright to be angry and let down or betrayed. I'm sure you have a buddy with the 360 so you can get hands on so that you can see for yourself otherwise why waste your time letting people know you hate it?
im not interested one bit. gta 4 was awesome, even wonderful at first but damn it got old quick. it just had no real depth, and too fetch missions ruined an otherwise decent story by stretching it out arbitrarily. so im not exactly scrambling for more of that.
GTA made the Playstion..? silliest comment of the day... GTA didn't even became immensely popular until GTA3 came out on the PS2...so did GTA:2 make the PS1 a success ? ne ways have fun with the 1st of 3 exclusive expansions packs hitting the 360 this year..XD
ps3 game hype just happens, xbox360 gamers have to be told that they are going to be hyped. hahaha.
Street fighter 4 and Resident Evil 5 =(
I think it will sell ok to your hardcore GTA fan, altho I would have said I was one of those until the most recent fluff up of a GTA game. You may even find people who havnt even completed the full game buying it, just to see if it offers something different and new GTA the full game was just so repetitive so repetitive so repetitive so repetitive the argument about it being a game, all the xbox fanboys were saying GT5P wasn't even a 'game' so you certainly cannot call this a 'game'...its DLC.
Yay! More drop off missions. More pick this up that up. Take me here and there...zzzzzz
...fool on me. Hype me again, not f**king likely. GTAIV was over hyped and did not even come close to living up to my expectations. Its one saving grace is that it came on physical media which I could trade or sell for something else. I would advise those thinking of getting the DLC to wait for real gamers to provide their opinion as once you download it there are no refunds or opportunity to on-sell.
Thats how I feel about Killzone2 hahahahahaahahahahahaahahah but yeah im gonna pick up kz2 regardless since I will simply trade it for VC if I dont like it
like you actually have a ps3. troll.
The overpriced dlc? hmmm im not rebuying it for 360 for some lame biker DLC lmao we can all see that microsoft is trying to tackle killzone 2 with it, they shall lose.
i bet u can't wait for lbp dlc how much o yeah $5 for some clothes so if u buy four clothes u just spend $20 on clothes
With the two DLCs GTA4 will be bigger and better as SAN Andreas. MS marketing = million seller.
i just found the game boring ill pass on this one
Who even play GTAIV ? That game was 7/10 score MAX. It was overhyped and overrated and huge disappointment to GTA Fans.
I've been a GTA fan since they were top down 2D, and I thought gta4 was amazing.
I've just recently popped in GTA IV to play through it a second time, and I'm having loads of fun. Just like Perjoss, I've been playing GTA since it's first installment (on the PC, not the console remakes).
Question: IF THE DLC IS LARGE THEN HOW ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO OWN AN ARCADE W/O A HARDDRIVE?
Sucks to be them?? Or they can call MS and get 20gb HDD for $19 sent to them.
They see the offer that's touted on the NXE that offers a 20gb harddrive + 3 months of xbox live for $29.99 and buy it if they so choose
I wouldnt be bothered if the game was DLC as long as it is good. But GTA doesnt seem the same to me anymore and i honestly got bored playing it.
that is your opinion and you're allowed to have it. My opinion is that it was great game (not fantastic), and I will be downloading the DLC day one when it comes out. It will give something to do before KZ2 comes out a few days later.
Hype on 360 expansion pack game? Now it doesn't take a fanboy or so called non fanboy to realize the 360 is pretty much hurting for games this year when GTA DLC is being hyped. So call me a fanboy but wouldn't this be the same if PS3 owners were hyping Killzone 2 DLC? I own a 360 & PS3 and I can tell you I will not be buying a used copy of GTA just to buy this DLC. Personally I believe the game was the worst in the entire series and shouldn't warrant another dollar of mine.
There's no hype for this game....I don't see anyone hyping this really.
