Grand Theft Auto IV Xbox extras delayed
Released knocked back a quarter
Rockstar won't be releasing downloadable extras for the Xbox 360 version Grand Theft Auto IV quite as soon as rather a lot of gamers were anticipating.
There are at least two downloadables coming. The first chunk of this "episodic content" was expected sometime this coming autumn, but Rockstar's publisher, Take-Two Interactive, last week revealed the content won't be released until November at the earliest.
Take-Two said the content had been planned to appear during the fourth quarter of its current fiscal year - the quarter runs from 1 August to 31 October - but will now be released in the first quarter of FY2009, which kicks off on 1 November 2008.
The publisher said the delay had been implemented "to provide a better balance in Take-Two's release schedule".
The news will tickle onwers of the PlayStation 3 version of the game who have been annoyed that the rival console will get the goodies.
Re: Anyone notice?
That's someone else pretending to be Mark for a laugh, surely?
"I think that how it works, if the game sucks [...] move on to hyping the next game, and pretend you lever liked it or wanted it anyway..."
Motorstorm, Heavenly Sword, Lair, Haze.
GTA remains very similiar on both consoles, and a perfectly good game wherever you play it. Spending time arguing about filtering quality vs. resolution is quite incredibly childish.
Now that it transpires that the 360 got the crappy version of the game, suddenly it's now a 40hour bore, and there are far better things out there... LOL, had it been the other way round, GTA IV would have been the great things since sliced bread, in the eyes of the Xbots..

They have PS3 fanbois now? You mean there are actually people who are dumb enough to own a PS3? Are these the same people who were sucked into iPods, Macs and other overpriced crap or are they the same people who obsess about niche freeware tat like Linux? The way I see it you have to be one or the other to earn the title of "fanboi".
Either way I guess you have some pent up anger issues you need to resolve. Are you upset because your daddy's didn't buy you a betamax when you were a kid?
Well, I own this game, and the only thing I have to say is meh.
I can't be bothered with it. I don't want to have a girlfriend. I don't want to go drinkning with mates. I just don't care.
The gameplay itself is nothing new at all.
Honestly, I play Geometry Wars on my 360 more than GTA IV.
Yawn. More GTA.
To be honest after spending 40 odd hours playing the same drive here - shoot him - run from the police missions i would not want DL content. Least not in 6 months time, and would definitely not pay for it. In 6 months time Ill still be playing Metal Gear.
Anyone else think the same?
