The astronomically huge GTA IV expansion, The Lost and Damned, has finally gone live on Xbox Live, and can be downloaded from the Marketplace now.
Apparently it's not nice.Sorry for lieing
I think the 360 members think your being sarcastic since you favor the PS3 most of the time
I started playing through GTA4 again last night (in part for trophies), and have to say that Liberty City is not so bad on the second visit. In fact, I think I can appreciate the game more now than I did back when I picked it up some 10 odd months ago. I guess this is because I no longer compare it to previous GTA's in terms of vehicle control. And Niko is perhaps one of the most memorable characters I've ever played as in a game. So yeah, I'm jealous. Hope the DLC does well on 360 so devs will give us something like this for a 1/3 of the cost of a new game. Here's hoping the PS3 gets some DLC of its own in the near future. PSN/360: Lifendz
When I finish with Fallout 3: I'll be sure to pick up this DLC.
Do you have to have GTA IV to play this ?? 'coz I sold my copy. :(
yep... i did too but i think they discounted the price to 39.99 so people could buy it and get this
You can definitely find GTAIV for much cheaper, specifically Ebay. http://shop.ebay.com/items/...
Don't know if it helps, but I saw used copies at blockbuster for $14.99 and without original cover $9.99! I kept mine because GTA games hold more value than just bearing missions. I like to explore the whole city, and try stuff I might not have. Overall, I just like having a big city that I can do whatever in without having to worry about spending time in real jail!
I rented it earlier today, and I am downloading it now 1.78 gigs 1600 MS points
bubbles for info. This should help some.
the game has to be in the drive to play it. so the dlc will only work as long as the rental. also, i'm live now and can't find it in the market place...is anyone actually d/ling this yet?
Nasim and his multiple accounts hitting disagree for what? For somebody stating how much the games costs and how more storage it takes? Dammit mods do your job. Stop this nonsense. It's ridiculous now. On topic: Guess it's time to buy GTA4 for my 360 so I can get the DLC. I was borrowing my brothers PS3 version of GTA4 while waiting for the expansion.
Go go go!
@ sumguy81 Just put in the disc and highlight over the PLAY GTA IV, then press Y(game details) then go to DOWNLOADS, then scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. or Go to GAME MARKETPLACE, then go to GAME ADD-ONS, THEN NEW ARRIVALS, and it will be right there for you to download.
Lemme know how it is, guys. My roommate's too cheap to download it. EDIT: Obviously, you're lying. Somebody disagreed with you. Seriously though, I hope it's good. I want more!
im pretty sure my roomie will be downloading this later on today... he actually finished the game a feat I didn't even get close to doing...I still play an occasional GTA race though.. edit: I guess I am...lol still as I said in another thread if you enjoyed GTA4 then you should buy this...if you didn't then stay away .... and to the person who dis-agreed I may not like the main game..but the online was fun 4awhile....GTA Race is the shiz....
Leon... I'm pretty sure nobody on this site likes your roommate. Is he a deuchebag or something?
finally...best 20 bucks ever!
why disagrees go away fanboys dlc is 360 exclusive deal with it silly fanboys never die killzone 2+dlc=best feb ever it's nice to be a gamer :)
If anyone's having trouble finding it on the marketplace, here's the direct link: http://tinyurl.com/gta4dlc EDIT: I'd LOVE to know where the "disagree" came from!
as im sure you already know N4G has a dis-agree troll that occasionally gets loose...
The disagrees are coming from bashers/haters. Also the bashers/haters are getting disagrees because they outnumber the fans in here and the fans of the platform and game remember what the bashers/haters have said. Going to download this content right now have fun man.
It's the same reason why my comments below received so many disagrees, despite stating absolutely neutral comments. Fanboys with an agenda who feel a piece of machinery somehow holds influence over their lives.
I'm surprised no one has mentioned Killzone 2 yet. Oh look, I did it myself! ;) edit: I noticed below that Danja beat me to it.
To be fair, that mention of KZ2 was simply in response to a 360 troll who, even in a 360 news article can't resist trying to thumb Sony fans in the eye. Don't act like it's somehow Danja's fault that he took the bait. As for the disagree's, I can only assume the very notion that something is difficult to find on the new marketplace layout is considered tantamount to blasphemy. That's probably explains most of your disagrees. Just try posting "Hey, I can't find something on marketplace," on a news post sometime and see how many disagrees you get.
...downloading it right now. Can't wait to give this a go. Pretty damn good for the price.
This is gonna set new standards for what people expect out of DLC. Also, guess who makes a cameo in the intro? *laughs* Rockstar wins. Gotta feel bad for Sony right about though.
Why would you feel bad for Sony because of this? There's obviously a bunch of other games coming out for the system this year that look promising...
who cares about GTA4 ne more ?
The million plus of people likely to download this.
I will be very surprised if this sells 1 million. I'm sure it's a very great add on for gta4 and those that play it will have lots of fun but I only see it selling about 500k.
If a new XBLA IP like Castle Crashers can be successful, then I expect this to boom. Especially since Microsoft will probably advertise it.
Because it's such a huge chunk of content. More precisely, I feel bad for the Sony fans who won't get to try it out. But yeah, still plenty of good stuff coming out for PS3.
well lots of PS3 owners actually own both consoles...still.. dont let the ppl on N4G make u think other-wise edit:@below I didn't really get into GTA4 as much I did with the games back on the PS2 , it just didn't have that fun factor to it like past games ..the missions got boring and repetitive and there was literally nothing to do in the city other than bowling...searching for easter eggs or taking ur annoying chick on dates...I still have my copy but I never really use it..
You can feel bad for me too then, but not because i'm a one-console owner; it's because I am one of the rare 360 owners that doesn't have LIVE service due to the way my network is set up in my house. Still, I do have GTA IV, and I don't know if it's because I'm jaded by the series, but it just didn't do as much for me as the previous games did. I know I'll get disagrees, but that's just how I feel about the game itself. It has nothing to do with not being able to play the DLC. Besides, I have way too many unfinished games at the moment to worry about buying something like this. I still haven't beaten Dead Space, for crying out loud... :(
Dead Space has a good ending by the way :) The final boss is very cool and fun to kill easy but fun.
The final boss visiually was very impressive but even in impossible mode it was easy. Still loved the whole game, even got the platinum trophy. Can't wait for dead space 2
if it's good I will buy it
15 minutes down and a couple more to go before I launch this baby :) LOL some butt hurt Playstation fanboys on a disagree rampage, that makes me smile :)
Then explain why my comments recieved so many disagrees. It's simply someone with absolutely no life whatsoever.
the trolls are runnin wild on this article
I can see the reviews of kz2 hv not been coming recently and the fans of other console are busy playing hide and seek with disagrees. Anyway on topic, the DLC would be great for people who actually finished the game and loved it. I simple left after few missions. The driving mechs put me off as well as repetitive nature of gameplay. I wish this 50Mill would have been put on a new ip.
Thanks but no thanks MS/Rock*, GTA4 was overrated to me especially compared with GTA3 and San Andreas which were just so awesome to play. I will be spending my time with SF4 and with my clan in warhawk(possibly yhe most underrated game this generation) I hope that those gamers who are into GTA4 are able to download this and truly enjoy it, but its just not for me
Fanboys are disagreeing with you because they think you're making an attack on their lives here, when all you are doing is stating a fact that many people have once before stated. GTA IV was pretty underwhelming and overrated for what it offered.
I wouldn't say it's underated. It's just so difficult to get into since its been out so long. I bought it and after a few hours I just gave up cos it was so difficult and went back to MGO I think it was...now that's awesome online :D. But on topic, tbh i've never really been a big fan of GTA or DLC but sounds like this is closer a complete new game than an add-on from what I've read. Look forward to reading the verdict of what ppl think of this DLC...might even buy it if its good/cheap enough :P. @phantom disagrees Grow up ppl, there's gotta be better ways to utilise your time, gaming comes to mind, crazy I know...just throwing it out there or get a job coz u clearly have too much free time on your hands :).
I've been on this site from the very start, so I fully understand how defensive fanboys can be. What really concerns me is that all fanboys are so defensive of their console that they allow developers a pass when they release exclusive games/content on their system which is clearly not all it was hyped up to be. We as gamers need to critize developers who fall short of our standards regardless of affiliation becuase if we don't they will end up screwing us in the long run. My opinion of GTA4 is that the game is not on par with GTA3 or san andreas! Its time rock* added some innovation to the GTA series and clearly Lost and Damned is more of the same, its not innovation. But rock* and MS both know 360 gamers will buy and support it even if it sucks(I'm not saying it does, I'm saying if it really did suck). They know people will flock to the game simply because of the name. Not me, ill spend my time playing SF4 (CE). Agree or disagree if you want but at very least reply and state your reasons why you choose either.
Oh yes, you care so little about this DLC that you've commented on 3-4 different articles/reviews releated to it recently. It's obvious you're a jealous Sony Fanboy. Go away. PS. Warhawk SUCKS. Big time. Reviewers were just charitable towards it considering how the PS3 had such a small game selection when it was released. If Warhawk came out on the 360 it would be a joke exclusive compared to Halo 3 or Gears of War.
I never said I hate or disliked DLC, my comment was directed at GTA4. I have no jealousy whatsoever and never will. Why is it that everytime someone doesn't agree with someones comment they have to call them a fanboy? because I enjoy playing warhawk with my cllanmates I am a fanboy? Your argument against warhawk is based off reviews which are other peoples opinion! How about you try the damn game b4 you talk friend. @ air 1.. Innovation DONE RIGHT is supported. Example LBP, team ico games, flower, flow, Gow series halo series, eye toy, wii, blu ray, GTA3 ect ect ect Innovation DONE WRONG is not supported, example LAIR, Mirrors edge, virtual boy, zune, haze, too human, ect ect ect
Let's have a look. There's TheTruth, giving his opinion that GTA4 was overrated but hoping people who liked GTA4 will like the expansion. Then we have vfitz66, who just doesn't like GTA in general but is interested how fans of the series will take the DLC, which he thinks looks interesting. Then we have pumpkinpunker, who calls other people names and bashes games on their system of choice but doesn't give any reasons. Ok. Let's play...."Spot the Fanboy!"
Great reply, I was alittle worried that this site had lost all chances of becoming a place where gamers can discuss topics in a mature an ubiased way.
"Honestly I would rather them release GTA3 and San Andreas as full games on either XBL or PSN than this DLC/spin-off." Urm, San Andreas has been on Xbox Originals for months...
you ppl and innovation. funny thing is that when something innovative comes out ppl dont support it.. "mirrors edge" you do not have to reinvent the wheel every time something new is made just make it fun and top notch kinda like lost and damned the dlc is great. the dlc is huge its over a gig. the biggest dlc made yet but it's not innovative.. lol.. you enjoy san andreas the truth, im going to be playing this bad boy.
And sounds more fun than the original game.
Agreed. The story in this one looks so much more entertaining. I cant wait to drive my Harley down the streets with the 4 other gang members to the left and right of me.
Just traded in my PS3 copy of GTA 4 for the 360 version via Amazon (and actually made 3 bucks in doing so) just to get this. Indeed, with this and KZ2 out soon it's a good time to be a gamer who is NOT loyal to one particular platform.
are you crazy you are comparing $20 download content to killzone 2 are you in ure senses? lol
