Rumor: GTAIV DLC Coming To PS3, Including One New Episode
Update: I didn't make it clear although I thought I did; this is not an official announcement and can only be considered a rumor right now.
PlayStation 3 owners have seriously missed out when it comes to downloadable content for Grand Theft Auto IV but it seems Rockstar is about to remedy that lacking. Better late than never, right? You know, if it's even true.
As most of you know, the likes of The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony have only been made available for the Xbox 360 while the PS3 has been left out in the cold. In the past, we had heard rumors that Rockstar intended to deliver this DLC to owners of Sony's machine; after all, we're only talking about a timed exclusivity deal with Microsoft. Well, Rockstar has supposedly announced that both aforementioned downloadable episodes will finally arrive on the PS3 in 2010. Best of all, as a sort of "thank you for waiting" prize, PS3 players will also receive an exclusive piece of DLC, although we have no details on that just yet. Rockstar boss Dan Houser revealed as much during his simple statement to the press: "We are proud to announce that both episodic experiences - and a new one - will be available for the PS3. We cannot wait for people to play it." Yeah, well, you had better hope that people are still looking for DLC nearly two years after the game released (the game launched in April 2008). Again, though, the statement from Houser and the "announcement" aren't official; we've heard nothing from any actual PR source and the site in question doesn't provide a source, either.
Perhaps there's just too much of a time gap but at the same time, maybe that's a good thing. If you haven't revisited GTAIV in a while, you might be itching to do so and this new DLC will act as the perfect excuse.
