thats was a rather boring trailer to be quite honest....

not a very impressive trailer. is this content 360 only, or does it come to the pc as well?
Commented on 2009-02-03 17:04:16
I'm wondering, is this just a marketing tool for MS or is it actual worthwhile content? Like, hours and hours worth of GOOD gaming?

lol @ the responses. Trailer is pretty good. It's 360 only AFAIK. The PC version of GTA4 TANKED, so no reason to release this content to the pirates. This expansion is supposed to be like 20 hours of gameplay, new music, weapons, missions, nearly everything. I'm buying this for sure.

The 360 version of the game is the best version anyways.

You'll play as another character if didn't know it yet. So a whole new story line in the same city with new content. I'll get it for sure.

I love the way masteratt jumps on Rockstar for this being Xbox exclusive. If you were offered 50Million to make an exclusive game I doubt you'd turn it down to keep some fans happy.

But yea, I will defiantly will be getting this.

PC and PS3 owners have no reason to complain whatsoever.

Microsoft announced this content was coming out ages ago . . . before the PS3 even launched.

Knowing that info years in advance, if you were a GTA fan, you should have bought a 360; period. It's not like you were not told three years this content was coming exclusively to the Xbox 360.

On the other hand, if you are a fanboy claiming to be a GTA fan, claiming to feel upset because this content is Xbox exclusive, then in the immortal words of William Shatner, "Get a life!"

PS3 fans have had three years to make up their minds - either you are a fan of the games, or you are a fan of the hardware. And PC fans, I bet most of you do not have a PC even capable of even running GTA IV on PC, the system requirements to run the game smoothly, are through the roof. You'd literally be saving money just buying a 360 for the game, than upgrading most PCs just to play it.

This content is exclusive. It's been highly publicized for three years that it would be exclusive. So anyone who says that it is unfair they cannot get it (as well as get the next chapter) on their game platform of choice, well you did not want it in the first place; as supporting your hardware of choice, was obviously far more important than actually playing games.

As for the trailer above . . . it's alright. Nothing earth shattering, but alright just the same. I figure R* is going to release a proper story trailer in the next couple weeks in the build up to the game's release on the 17th. So these mini-trailers (teasers) are okay for what they are.

As for the game itself, well that is so purchased. The Lost and Damned is easily the one of the biggest no-brainer purchases since the Orange Box. About 20 hours of new game play, for $20 . . . plus new side missions . . . new online modes . . . new Achievements . . . new weapons . . . new vehicles . . . new music tracks . . . and a new protagonist . . . not bad for $20.

I can't wait. February is turning into one helluva month. FEAR 2: Project Origin, Street Fighter 4, Killzone 2, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails, Stoked and GTA IV: The Lost and Damned. I'm going to be busy all month long. This is the way every year should kick off.

About 20 hours of new game play
i doubt it, but time will tell i guess... im sure reviews will tell us the real deal when it comes to length. atm we're assuming R* are telling the truth...but we all know they usually exagerate when it comes to stuff like this, why admit its only 5 hours long when you can get more sales bullshitting that its 20.

I really hate times of the year like this, I'm gonna be broke and have no social life for a couple of months at least.

really do dobt it will be 20 hours, but heres hoping! just hope its better than what we see in the trailer.

powder grow up! its people like you why i hate xbox live. i just wonder what all these people who are saying its going to be 20 hours will do if it turns out to be a fraction of that?

me i think it might be around 8-10 hours at most- but that still a lot longer than most full price games. anybody any iodea when the next dlc pack will be out and freeswag i do have a pc that can run gta 4, mind if lost and the damned turns out to be good i will still be getting for my 360.

By 20 hours, they probably mean: Play through about 3 hours of solid missions, add in the time to watch the cutscenes, and then the remaining bit is the time that you spend just screwing around not doing anything in particular, but just blowing stuff up :D
Commented on 2009-02-04 00:10:28
I'm sure the 20 hours thing is taking into account the amount of time you'll be messing around with the new weapons and vehicles, but I don't really see a problem with that. By the looks of it, we're getting a really large amount of new content.

THIS is exactly how all DLC should be done, not just random bits and pieces removed from the game, but a full on expansion.

I haven't bought GTA 4 yet (got bored playing the other ones). Is it worth getting or has it been over-hyped?

This is a serious question BTW, not trying to piss on the flames or anything!

Commented on 2009-02-04 14:17:37
I think its' really well done trailer. I love the music and the way it's cut. Nicely done.
Commented on 2009-02-04 16:22:42
Does anyone know, what audio-track that is? ... it's nice. Trailer itself isn't that bad either ;)
Commented on 2009-02-05 00:36:57
Isn't this £13? Not really worth it as GTA4 only cost me £10 delivered :)
