Why do 360 owners get extras? Sony has been more faithful to Rockstar and THIS is what they get?:(

LOL! Well the exclusive extras will still enrage Sony fanboys/girls... I don't care 'cause I won't ever buy a GTA game... though it's big news and big business.

Where do you get this stuff? Faithful??? It's the console makers that need GTA now, not the other way around!

That stuff about extra content is complete and utter BS lol. They are both being relieased simultaneously, one of them isn't getting any special treatment over the other.

If you mean Xbox exclusive stuff like xbox live stuff, downloadable content etc, then PS3 will also have it's own exclusive features to compensate.

:rolleyes:

They can't accept it... although if the PS3 was said to get extras they'd not only believe it but think it was all just right and proper that way!

No, coz MS did a deal with RS, MS was a bit misleading when they announced it making people belive the whole game was exclusive.

What they probably meant was exclusive to the 360 at first. That's the way the other GTA exclusives were, they came out on PS2 and then Xbox later. Even if that's all it means then it's a big boost for MS.

You might be right.

What part of "simultaneous release" don't you understand? :whi:

What part of this don't you understand: I haven't seen anything official that says "simultaneous release"! ;)

If that's the case, then that's cool for everyone... but don't try and act like MS isn't getting anything exclusive, because they wouldn't make a big announcement if that weren't true in some fashion! :p

From what I can gather, GTA IV will release on both 360 and PS3 at the same time in 2007. However, it appears that MS have struck a deal with Rockstar and will get extra downloadable content via Xbox live. No mention of any extra content for the PS3.

No mention of any extra content for the PS3.But there obviously will be, otherwise it would just be a complete waste of the PS3's online network.

Guess I did misread you in the other thread UT :D

I think X360 will have the downloads for a period of time, then after a while, both PS3 and X360 will have them :)

During MS press conference, they emphasised the fact that MS and Rockstar have entered a partnership where they will provide exclusive downloadable content via Xbox Live.

It doesn't matter whether the PS3 has an online network. If MS has the exclusive rights to this content then Sony simply will not get it.

Well there was certainly no mention of it at the Sony press conference :wve:

Well Rockstar says "simultaneously" and Moore comes out and says "360 first", which seems to be what he actually did say...

I don't want to fight with Night Crawler--or anyone really, 'cause none of us knows the real truth--but obviously there's a discrepancy. You might tend to think MS is wrong, but maybe not. These deals can be finalized at any time and if they secured first rights to the game you can bet he'd be chomping at the bit to say it. The Rockstar announcement could have been a press release written weeks ago--particularly with regards to release schedule information, which changes all the time for games by all publishers.

*Sigh*

I'm sick of arguing! I'm not even getting a PS3 rofl and I find the GTA series kind repetative now.

I'm more of a Wii fanboy really, I just love a good argument! ;)

Can you confirm if GTA4 will be also Vista-only exclusive? I think it will be, but I'm not sure. MS sucks as usual...
