Episodes from Liberty City heads its way onto the PS Store on this fine sunny day*. This includes both expansions (The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony) and won't require the original GTAIV disc.

To quote: This month's episode features one of the most anticipated PlayStation Move titles, previews of two popular sequels, and a retrospective look at the series.
