Both 'exclusive' DLC 'episodes' and GTAIV story mode were due to be the same game, same city, same time scale, different perspectives. Much like selecting one of 3 criminals in GTA1.

Rockstar needed more funding than intended and had to fund the rest of the game and had to dismantle the true vision by ripping apart the game into three parts because Sony had spent more money on the production of first party games and technology unlike the 360 and MS offered that the full game would be made, but with a catch; 2 parts of the game would be removed from the retail game for temporary exclusivity on 360 because it couldn't fit on DVD9.

This then meant that the target date for GTAIV was shortened down to 2008 instead of 2009/2010 and the full game with the DLC episodes will be seen in a collectors edition on both systems in the next two years as the true GTAIV experience as it was designed with all three perspectives in the same timeline.
