GTA IV updates coming to Windows?
Screenshot signals PC edition of TLAD
PC gamers look set to gain access to Grand Theft Auto IV’s downloadable episode updates, if a Games for Windows Live (GWL) screenshot is anything to go by.
GTA IV's downloads are currently only available on the Xbox 360

A screenshot of GTA IV’s achievements page on GWL has appeared online. It lists five of the achievements available in The Lost and Damned - the first of GTA IV’s two downloadable updates, both of which are currently only available on the Xbox 360.
Microsoft signed a deal – thought to be worth $50m - with GTA’s developer, Rockstar, to ensure that only Xbox 360 owners could download the updates.
It has never been announced if the deal with Microsoft is time-limited, but Register Hardware is sure that it wouldn’t have been hard for Microsoft to expand its exclusive deal across to Windows.
Sorry, Sony! ®
Yes I spotted this yesterday after another big update...Just in time for Christmas?
They really need to pull thier finger out though, the PC version needs updates before it gets completely forgotten/superceeded.
Remember 3rd December 2008?
hmm I wonder what happens on 3rd December 2009?
Clue: 12 months after PC Release!
Coming to PS3 too.
Serveral PS3 demo units were seen running GTA IV Lost and Damned at E3 earlier this year. with a line of punters waiting to play it.
Obviously rockstar can't SAY anything about it as their contract prevents it, but if Sony want to put up some demo units, who were they to stop them.
I'd suspect by Jan we will get a date for both PC and PS3.
