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.

While I enjoyed GTAIV (still have to finish it, actually...), to be honest I don't think I'll care enough about it in 2010 to buy the new content. The Lost and Damned doesn't do it for me, but who knows, Rockstar may wow me with the second batch of DLC.

I mean, will there even be enough PS3 owners to care about it next year? (Don't mean in numbers, just people's interest)

Who's excited for this? Not many is my bet, it was a good game and I'm hanging onto it, but 40 bucks more for a (probably brief) spinoff? They better get to work on GTAV or a GTA: Subtitle and stop playing around with this stuff. I kinda laugh when people mention this as a "2009 exclusive for 360", I mean yeah it's exclusive DLC but not really a whole game and everyone is pretty much over the game by now.

A game like Grand Theft Auto should be no less than the size of San Andreas this generation. Sure there was alot of things to do in GTA IV, but the staying power after completing the game just wasn't on par with the other GTA's. Even with online multiplayer, I was turned off from playing it because the chaos level and enviroment wasn't as fun to explore as the other games.

I might pick it up (depending on when it comes out) I have to get back to GTA4, it's like the only game on my list with hardly any trophies, it looks pitiful :P Those ones are so hard to get though, and very time consuming. Maybe this extra content will get me to go back to it.

Rumor is that Microsoft payed for Splinter Cell: Conviction... And I really wanted that game.

Everything in KZ2 has spoiled me, I don't have much to do online in that game anymore since ranking up to General, now I only face the toughest opponents >< which hasn't been working out for me at all D: So i'm going through the single player campaign for the 2nd time. All my other games don't look very good, or play very good at all anymore since KZ2. Not sure if this game was a blessing or a curse now.

Doubtful for the price M$ paid but it's a nice theory. Even tho it's short it looked a bit more badass than the drudgery that was the main game, and I can wait a year to play it with all the other A games.

By the time that the DLC is available on disc, there will already be rumours of a GTAV, And then no one will care...It's possible for it to come to PS3, but 40 bucks for 1/8th of what GTAIV was? No thanks.

I've seen a couple of adds on the TV for the Lost and Damned but does anyone know how it's doing sales wise? I'm just wondering if all that money Xbox paid for the DLC exclusive was worth it.

I can't speak for the Xbox crowd but it seems most people on here have already moved on to other games. In order for the hype of the DLC to be effective shouldn't it have come out a month or two after GTAIV instead of a year?

I was wondering about this when the exclusive content for Fallout 3 was announced. I'd like to know how succesful exclusive DLC is.

As far as I'm concerned, MS can have the DLC. I'd rather have a good new game, than fork over extra money to extend the life of an old one. Not to spark the flame, but I think 360 owners have to lean more on the DLC because the list of exclusives is so sparse. I think it's the exact opposite for the PS3.

Anywayz, there are very few games that I would choose to spend $10 or $20 (let alone $40) to extend rather than put that money toward a new game.

Lol, the flame didn't need spark, but you may have just added fuel to the fire...

I know what you mean about spending the extra cash though, I'm still a little peeved about spending 200 buck on Rockband..Sure I got all the goodies, but it doesn't get played as much as my other games. The only time I bring it out is when people come over..then after a few drinks the Band takes the stage. My friends all have fun with it when they come over, but they didn't have to pay for it..lol, maybe I should start charging cover... or get new friends...lol

I believe MS was testing the waters with DLC, when the idea of DLC first came out (only a mere 2 or so years ago). They figured if they could secure DLC on their console, that it would sway users to their consoles. I think GTA4 DLC was their biggest gamble, and if 'Lost and the Damned' flops, then expect no further $50M deals for future DLC exclusives (for any title). As it stands, I doubt the new DLC has garnered enough hype or movement in the X360 to justify the $50M investment.

Also, because of this recession and their less-than-dominant stock value, I seriously doubt they have the same amount of freedom to throw money around, as they once did.

Unless 'The Lost and the Damned' sells exceptionally well, I doubt MS will see a positive ROI (Return On Investment), in their $50M deal. You have to also consider putting in money to advertise, promotions, etc. Also, DLC costs less than the full titles, and only people who currently own GTA4 will consider it. All factors that they must consider...

So let me get this straight. GTAIV has sold upwards of 13 million copies. They've estimated 1 million LaD sold to date, with 2 million sold by October. If those estimates are anywhere near correct then I think Take2 has made a big mistake with their exclusive DLC. Release it for every system and let the customers choose. Instead they've got half their customers pissed off at them and the other half don't care enough to buy the exclusive DLC.

Take2, don't bother now. I for one am not buying any of your DLC and will not rush out for the next GTA.
