Rockstar’s released The Lost and Damned, GTA IV’s first major piece of DLC, as you can see here.

The content’s priced at 1,600 MS Points, and features around 10 hours of gameplay.

You need the original GTA IV disc in the drive to play it, remember, and it’s a 360-only thing. Just in case you’d forgotten.

Thanks Michael O’Connor.

    10 hours? LOL pretty short. Well have fun 360 owners. I doubt it was worth for MS paying 50 million for it…..

    I guess that really depends on how much money they make off the back of it, hmm?

    Besides, it was $25million. The other $25million is for the next batch of DLC.

    10 hours is short now? Someone should tell the developers of 90% of the full priced games I’ve played recently. :D

    I saw this was DLC was the maximum size it could be for XBL, but what is that actual size – how many GB’s we talking?

    Oh, and I think people have difficulty understanding the term “loan”.

    Well Psychotext, you are the first time I’ve ever heard it was a loan.

    No offence, I just assumed you assumed that.

    I think ti was 1.7gb’s as someone said earlier… I think.

    And 10 hours is long. If it includes driving to your next hit, then that really doesn’t do a thing for me.

    “how many GB’s we talking?”

    1.78GB, to the mark.

    That’s at least 2 dozen cutscenes, numerous new vehicles and buildings, and new radio content, including a new radio segment about the current “economic crisis”. *laughs*

    Not bad for the price.

    I don’t do assuming. :)

    All the relevant information is in Take Two’s financial results and it was discussed in their investor teleconference.

    ha… I just noticed the images at the top of the page. That’s very clever. :P

    So how did you gain access to their teleconference (or atleast information of it) and where is it stated in their financial results.

    Anyway, it was a superb business decision for Microsoft to swoop in then, no economic crisis, T2 in hard times, superb idea. ESPECIALLY if it was a loan.

    Although it being a loan, further fuels the idea it’s contractually exclusive.

    You can see the analysis of it here if you don’t want to go digging on the take two site / conference history sites: http://www.edge-online.com/news/microsoft-paid-50m-advance-gta-iv-content

    It moderated me yesterday for using two smilies in a single post.

    I can kind of see it’s point, actually. Now that I think about it.

    Yeah, you’re overly smiley Blerk… It’s a goddamn recession.

    By the way, why is VG247 linked to, by Cecil Kim’s blog (cecil-b-demented), Sony Santa Monica concept artist!?
