Houser – Gay Tony must hit discs to get to “more people”
Rockstar’s Dan Houser reckons GTA IV’s DLC episodes have to come to discs because digital distribution for larger items just isn’t there yet.
“I know, as a consumer, I’m more comfortable buying songs, which are almost like playing a jukebox, than I am buying movies as purely digital items,” Houser told USA Today.
“We all feel that way, so we can surely get more people to experience it if we put it on a disc.”
However you end up consuming Gay Tony, it looks as though it’s going to be awesome. Houser expanded on the plot.
“Luis has to do some of these favors and see if he can get them out of debt,” he added.
“The situation with Tony’s drug problems gets worse and worse, and Tony gets more and more out of control.”
Sounds fun. The episode’s first movie was released tonight. It’s awesome. The content releases on October 29.
