Hey, sorry if this has been posted, please delete if it has...I haven't been online much and really didn't have time to do a search

Anyway, I was checking email and the PS3 store said the Ballad of Gay Tony and Eps from Liberty City are coming this month for DL. I thought this was XBOX exclusive...or was it exclusive for a year (or whatever) Being that there's an inch of dust on the game, I might not care or it might bring the game back to life for me.

Anyway, does anyone have a rough idea of the cost? Does anyone know why the PS3 is getting it now?

Thanks

The PS3 is getting it because the two DLC for GTAIV sold so poorly on the X360. R* supposedly threw a BF at Microsoft, and Microsoft worked things out so they could bring Lost and Gay Tony to both the PC and PS3. Either way, you are in for a treat as both DLC are definately worth the money if you are a hardcore GTAIV fan like I am. Part of the argument for its poor sales is that it came out so late that people had simply moved on and wern't playing GTAIV anymore. I don't know how much it will cost you, but I bought the DVD version that was sold at stores for $40. It sounds steep for DLC, but it was definately worth it as it adds a lot of playing time. It also fills in some holes in the storyline of GTAIV that you definately saw, but likely wern't paying attention to.

I know if you like GTA, it's probably the funnest and most exciting chapter yet. The pacing is awesome. Get's you right into the action.

Some how I just don't think that's true. Probably more like the exclusivity contract was there from the beginning.

I'm only telling you what is going around on the rumor mill. Besides the PR nice talk we have all read, i'm not sure anyone outside of R* or MS actually knows the actual terms of what happened here. I remember originally from the PR at the time that these DLC's were never supposed to go to the other platforms of something like that. Afterall, Microsoft supposedly paid $50million at the time which is way more than enough to bankroll even the hardest core of a full game.
