Rumor: GTAIV Lost And Damned Content Headed To PS3
If you're a Grand Theft Auto fan, you certainly want the new Lost and Damned DLC, regardless of any platform preferences you may have. Therefore, you'll be happy to hear about the latest rumor...this speculation was almost inevitable, even if the foundation isn't all that stable.
The rumor is as follows: as most of you know, the aforementioned DLC is exclusive to the Xbox 360; in the original press release concerning Lost and Damned, Microsoft and Take-Two Interactive confirmed that it would be a "downloadable exclusive." Of course, this left a little room for interpretation, which is now coming to light. According to a supposed inside tipster who spoke to PSInsider, The Lost and Damned will release for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in disc format. some time next year. It will feature everything that's included in the current 360 DLC plus the next episode (scheduled for release later this year), and it will retail for $40. Obviously, as this is nothing more than a rumor, no official source has confirmed anything. Everyone is still waiting to see if Rockstar or Take-Two will issue a statement of some kind, and if they do, we'll be one of the first to tell you about it; that's for sure. We figured we'd see something like this, as PS3 owners really do want to have this extra content. But is this just wishful thinking? Or worse, a way to rile everyone up on the Internet...? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, let's just cross our fingers. It does seem plausible, and timed exclusivity seems to be a common theme when it comes to Microsoft. It wouldn't really shock us if Lost and Damned ended up on the PS3 in some way, at some point.
