Episodic Content For GTAIV PS3 In 2009?

Sometimes, when a specific platform isn't mentioned, it can actually turn out to be a good thing for owners of that platform. No, really...we're not going insane just yet.

During Take-Two's most recently released financial statement, they said we can expect more episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV in 2009. This news came along with the first official confirmation of 2K Marin's Bioshock 2, which, according to recent rumors about Microsoft paying big bucks for the exclusive rights, may not arrive on the PS3. But you may notice that Take-Two isn't singling out any one console with the following quote regarding future episodic content:

“We also have significant visibility into fiscal 2009, which includes additional episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV, Mafia II, Borderlands’, BioShock 2, our complete sports lineup, additional Nick Jr. titles under our agreement with Nickelodeon, and several new brands,” said Take-Two CEO Ben Feder. (source- Videogaming247 blog)

Feder did say that episodic content for the Xbox 360 was "cooked-in" for 2008, but that's it. Hence, with no mention of the PS3 in the aforementioned statement, most are already starting to speculate that Rockstar will be providing additional content for the PS3 version of GTAIV in 2009. Chances are, this is probably true, as most experts didn't anticipate the 360 version getting all the bonus content. Could this be an official hint that the PS3 GTAIV will have episodic content next year? We'd like to think so.

lets see... comes out late Apr... DLC in 2009..

yep, I should be ready for that when it comes, lol.

as for the 360's DLC in 2008, thats what MS paid for, but how gutted are they? seeing as the game got delayed until 2008, not exactly the length in time of the exclusive DLC that they paid millions for.

at the end of the day I would rather have DLC when I wanted it. maybe I will sit there in a few months and wish we had something, or like the other GTA's be totally happy with the game and in 2009 welcome what ever we get from R*.

I think people seem to forget that the PS3 has many AAA titles coming out this year (imo), so the lack of DLC for one of those games isnt that much of a worry. its coming, thats enough for me!

Its sad that the only power M$ has is their $$$. And if it does coem out late April, I think most of us will be playing the main game far too much to care about the DLC and by the time we're getting tired of the main game...BAM! DLC for the P...S...3!!! :-P Neener neener!

So is this what Rockstar meant when they said both versions of the game (360, PS3) would have the exact same DLC? The only difference is that the xbox folks get it waaay earlier than we do, right?

when Microsoft starts throwing money around, everything starts to get confusing :(
