GDC: GTA IV DLC is massive, says Microsoft

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.
