200°
272w ago - Is August 20th the day for the Lost and Damned DLC?

For months now, PlayStation 3 gamers have been asking when will the Lost & Damned DLC come to the PSN Store?

PSW Magazine recently published an article in their magazine stating that Microsoft only had a 6 month exclusivity deal for 'The Lost and Damned' add-on for Grand Theft Auto IV.

This potentially means that the add-on will be released on August 20th, 2009.

So everyone get ready because it will come sooner rather than later!
 

GTA Chinatown Wars for Nintendo DS Leaked, Working on Carts!

200°
280w ago - GTA Chinatown Wars for Nintendo DS has been leaked online just before the weekend, and many users at GBATemp.net (linked above) have confirmed it works with a variety of carts.

The official streetdates for the title are March 17, 2009 for North America and March 20, 2009 for Europe.

Apparently it works on the G6 real with latest firmware, SCDS1 (clean, no patches with latest firmware and AKRPG (AKAIO).

To quote: "At the start when you turn on your DS with your supercard, go to the GTA NDS file on the top screen, then in the bottom screen you will see the file information, at the right hand side you will see ''SET PATCH'' click that, and you will notice that the top one is ''ENABLE PATCH'; which is ticked, well untick that and start the game!!"

Also, the DS-X is reportedly capable of running it with the [Register or Login to view links] and others by using this save game file on your cart:

Rumor: GTA IV Episodic Content Coming to PlayStation 3

250°
280w ago - Coming hot off the heels of industry analyst Michael Patcher [Register or Login to view links] he believes the Lost and Damned DLC will sell 2 million on Xbox 360 and the next full GTA title will come out next year, PlayStation Insider has received an anonymous tip.

To quote: The tipster cites Microsoft and Take-Two Interactive's (parent company of GTA developer Rockstar) original press release about the episodic content claiming, it was carefully worded PR hyperbole, only confirming the episodic content would only be a downloadable exclusive, mentioning nothing of future retail releases.

The game will likely be released mid-year 2010 in the storm of hype Take-Two will be producing for it's next full release Grand Theft Auto title. It will come with at least the Lost and Damned episode available on Xbox Live right now, as well as the next episode, and will retail on a disc for around $40 on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The source also believes the second episode will be released on Xbox Live later this year, and we also have a very strong hunch we will see some more of the next episode by this summer.

While we have no other details, we will report them as soon as we have official information. Rockstar has yet...
 

Pachter: GTA 5 by 2010, GTA 4 DLC to Sell 2 Million by Year's End

100°
281w ago - What with development for the DLC episodes, Rockstar Games isn't done with Grand Theft Auto 4 just yet.

Despite that, analyst Michael Pachter is already pegging 2010 as the perfect time for the next console iteration of the sandbox franchise.

And since it's Pachter we're talking about here, he can't just leave it at a release date prediction. He's also forecasting that by 2010 - if GTA V does get released then - it will be able to sell 50% more than last year's GTA IV.

To quote: We don't think it is reasonable to estimate that sales of GTA will double the prior version, but we think that a 25 - 30 per cent penetration is reasonable, suggesting 15 - 18 million units sold.

That means that Take-Two's profits from the next iteration should be approximately 50 per cent greater than from the last version.

Total sales for GTA IV on the PS3 and Xbox 360 currently amount to 12 million units so far. That's 40% of the 30 million projected installed base of the PS3 and Xbox 360 combined in Europe and North America. (In short, of all the people who have a PS3 or 360 in the west, 40% of them bought GTA IV). The "25-30% penetration" he mentions above is based on a projected 60-million combined installed base for the two consoles by 2010.

Another prediction...
 

Microsoft Plans Free XBox Live Gold Functionality for GTA IV

50°
284w ago - Microsoft has announced that is will offer free access to Live Gold functionality for players of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV in February. Starting on February 17, anybody playing either Grand Theft Auto IV or its upcoming expansion, The Lost and Damned, will be able to play free of charge. The offer will expire on February 22.

The move is set to coincide with the release of the new DLC episode The Lost and Damned, which Rockstar hopes will revive interest in its open-world shooter. Hopefully they have also made some tweaks to the multiplayer modes in this new game. Heck, if it is free to go online and check them out, we will definitely give it a go.

This is the first time that Microsoft has extended such an offer. We can see this move potentially backfiring for the Redmond company, however. Like the days of Perestroika, once gamers get a taste of the good life, they might not be so eager to go back to the old gulag of paid online service.

Hopefully this opens the door for future online demo offers to coincide with the release of new titles, leading to the eventual liberation of Xbox live for all. Microsoft, tear down that wall!
