that trailer is very representative of the console it's going to be on(american). i hope it delivers and reflects the 50mil MS put out for it.

Damn you M$ and Rock$tar for doing a exclusive deal....*sigh*
I play GTA4 almost daily and would have loved this.

I hope it makes it's way to PS3 at some point......Or at least the PC.

What should it represent exactly? and Microsoft gave Rockstar an interest free loan of $50m, even if it fails to deliver they still get their money back.

Trailer looked good but I hated the music, even though it is fitting for the theme of this. I'll wait to see if it has better mission variety before I decide if it's worth a purchase.

They didn't just pay 50mil for this. They paid that much for multiple dlc episodes for it.

Sorry, it's confirmed that it's only on the 360 this time.

The DLC story appeals more to me than the main GTA4 story :), all depends on the price for me.
Commented on 2008-12-15 21:23:18 In reply to dcdelgado
1200 or 1600 points I reckon, unless the dlc story lasts quite a long time.

Think I also heard about a new radio station as well - if it means a more heavy metal tone (think V Rock), then I'm all up for it. Swiss Beatz and bikers don't quite mix, I think...

Oh, and IIRC, the music is Sepultura...

Don't forget that this is only the first of two episodes.

Not super excited over this DLC but I'll probably check it out, seems a lot more interesting than 90% of the paid DLC coming out on 360 games.

I still play GTA4 pretty often, just messing around and crap.

Notice how none of them are wearing a helmet :O :O
Those of you (all of you?) that played GTA4 knows how often a helmet can save niko's life when you crash into a wall while on a bike :P

I don't think they care about making their money back. $50 million is nothing to Microsoft.

Many people still see GTA as a "Playstation game" and even people who own both consoles generally seemed to want the PS3 version because of that. I'm sure the promise of this DLC brought a lot of people over, and now that it's actually coming hardcore GTA fans don't really have a choice if they want to play this.

looks cool, great music but give me new citys instead. I dont like driving bikes in GTA4 but im gonna get this anyway. :P

It doesn't have to. Take 2 needed money so Microsoft loaned them 50 million. Instead of paying back that amount of money plus interest they give them the total income of two exclusive GTA 4 episodes. And then they have to pay back the 50 million minus DLC income.

And the DLC will cost 1600 points each.

I can't believe how many Ps3 fans seem convinced to this day that quote "people" see GTA as a "Playstation brand" when it's complete BS. Only the person saying that is the one who sees it as such, and then they project that onto what they consider the casual game playing market. How about you take a fucking census instead of just saying stuff you have no evidence toward.

Second, people who own a 360 and Ps3 did not "generally [seem] to want the PS3 version because of that". Again, unless you want to take a poll, from my personal experience reading message boards like NeoGAF and 1up, it seemed like the vast majority of multi console owners wanted the 360 version regardless, because unlike the Ps3 version it was in native 720p, appeared to have better draw distance from comparison videos, and even if they weren't sure if the exclusive DLC would be worth the money, they wanted the CHOICE when it came around.

Yeah, I'm pretty miffed about this. And I'm a 360 owner (or was and will be again soon). I'm pretty annoyed at any exclusives, but this is the stuff that realy pisses me off. Its a little too much like Gears of War PC.

Also, I thought the guy you play as isn't supposed to be Niko? WHo is he, his brother? Looks just like him lol. Looks great though, much more into bad ass bikers then teh other stuff. Not that an ex military euro chap ain't bad ass. And its a hell of a lot better then a stereotypical gang banger. Was that grenade launcher in the original?

You aren't serious are you? Most people and gamers alike have no idea what native resolution is, and the majority of reviewers stated the PS3 version looked better beside the fact it is technically quite different and "worse" in many ways (no AA, lower resolution)

Seriously most of the things you wrote are the complete opposite, the draw distance thing is BS.The videos I have seen show similar distances on both consoles, which it to be expected since most of the game isn't exactly streamed off the Bluray, if it was there would likely be a difference.

what is Blu-Ray?

"I hope it makes it's way to PS3 at some point......Or at least the PC. "

It won't. This content (and the second load of content after this) are 360 exclusive, only, forever.

No. Oddly I dont see poeple bitching about all the games that get released only for play$tation3. Not like there would bee too mutch of those anyone would want to have:D
When is tis supposed to be released? This is the only reason why I havent sold this game yet. Hopefully there is allso new xbox live gamemodes too.
Commented on 2009-01-01 13:40:16
You see, because if you ask the average dipshit they will not know what a Bluray is, nor how it affects gaming.

What is hi-def? Why are my games so short? How do I put the disk in the tray?
Oh the woes

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (30 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (42 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts electric devices, entertainment devices, etc. So who has that much money left that isn't reserved for Christmas perparation and gifts?! All around bad timing, hence why I believe Spring would be right (44 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Then you have the fact that by now people's wallets are hurting. And many people buyed new consoles, PS4 Base or Pro, and XB1 S. Plus Holiday season sells a lot of other things like clothes, PC parts, (46 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I believe it has to do with the fact that there's too many games to play at the moment, and most of these new games ar very long. This is the week FF15 was just released, and WD2 on PC as well. (48 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Maybe, but I believe it would have become a kind of "cult-classic" niche game even if it failed to become a very huge success. Still, if a game like TF2 isn't succesful, it's a real shame. (49 minutes ago)
