About Bloody Time! Really glad this is finally arriving but its a bit sad aswell; GTA was considered the playstation exclusive game until xbox bought the rights, and then they went on to secure the DLC. Im glad its finally become avalible to Sony, but it just proves it: Nothing is exclusive anymore. Shame really.
Still, really looking forward to this coming out! Its going to be avalible on the PS Store, so you dont have to pre-order it really...will probably be cheaper aswell as your not paying for a disk or a case or for the shop to stock it or mail it.
yup but with the xbox also, u might probably need the gta4 game to download it from psn. i dont mind paying the price for the hard-copy, gta afterall started out on playstation and pc formats im just glad rockstar listened to their loyal followers and released it for us too. =P
Very glad this is coming out on PS3. GTA IV is relatively old now but I'm still playing it - love it. I'll have to make do with going back through San Andreas (the best in the series so far, IMO) until March 30th.
I wonder if the Xbox exclusivity for the DLC is only for a certain length of time. Fallout 3 DLC was exclusive to Xbox but it eventually came out on PS3 as well, much like the GTA stuff is now coming out for PS3 - much later than Xbox. Maybe the agreement with developer/publisher is to make it Xbox exlcusive for X amount of time.
Ha ha ha! No title exclusive to the xbobx can escape the PS3! I bought this game for the xbox, and it's still the only reason I still have a 360, so finally I can get rid of that piece of rubbish... I wouldn't be surprised if more Xbox exclusive stuff came to the PS3, like the next Mass Effect. Microsoft keep paying millions for these exclusives, but like the Fallout 3 DLC they all get exported to other consoles--- How much disposable income have they got???
Anyway, good news about the release of this- even on Xbox- brilliant game. Most recommended! ZRH
Im slightly paranoid that its not a port issue (and if it is, i hope they take a little extra time if its needed to make the game port well) and its microsoft paying to have it stalled and eventually cancelled. Crazy i know but...
My delivery date is expected to be between 18-19 April. Has anyone got a 16 April delivery date?
I remember when getting GTA IV, it was originally going to reach me by May 1-2 instead of the release date of 29 April, but the game did arrive on the release date after all.
I'm wondering if the delivery date will be revised to 16 April in the next few weeks. If not, I'll cancel the order on 14/15 April and buy it at a shop instead, as I don't want to wait over the weekend.
And its even more gutting/annoying that we should have got this AGES AGO. Dam exclusivity payments. If this happened with DVDs with the DVD players having rights to play Universal or Paramount films people wouldn't have it. But it seems fine with the games industry. Grrr.
apparently each episode will be 13.99 which makes it not cheaper than this, also you dont get it on a disk so you have to riley on your hard drive and a good internet connection. Also no worries of losing it if you want to swap your hard drive
That's if the Rockstar geeks don't back-date it again like they back-date everything. I don't know why they had to keep on back-dating this game when it's already been released for the 360. All they had to do was convert it to the PS3.
