GDC: GTA IV DLC is massive, says Microsoft

Friday, 22nd February 2008 21:11 GMT By Patrick Garratt

Something worth pulling out of the blogger breakfast Microsoft held yesterday. According to this, Microsoft said the exclusive DLC for GTA IV will be huge, similar in scope to Vice City or San Andreas compared to GTA III. We haven’t listened to the audio from the event, and if we’re being honest it sounds a little squiffy for us, but according to this:

  • When MS says exclusive, it means that no other system can have DLC content for GTA IV.
  • It will be bigger than a lot of people think. Vice City and San Andreas were basically expansions of GTA3. Think of the DLC that way. We are talking major expansion for GTA IV.
  • No price has been discussed yet. It’s up to Rockstar on whether or not they will charge for it.
  • If successful, DLC may be the new way to deliver GTA expansions.

    Probably not going to happen anyway, at least not in the way as it is descripted there.

    It does sound a tad inflated. Mind you, MS did spend a hell of a lot of money, so they’d expect something decent for it, you’d guess.

    [...] Rockstar North’s Neil Corbett has seemingly posted on rllmuk to say that the Xbox 360 version of GTA IV is “superior” to the PS3 SKU and that the Xbox 360 DLC is by no means as massive as we were previously led to believe. [...]
