wait wait wait...
but here is the thing everyone, it sounds pretty definite, i've seen it in many places now, that PS3 is eventually getting extra/i think new DLC, it maybe for MS too, but PS3 is getting it
and MS obviously thought all of this through and had a reason to buy it, yeah, they may not be able to pay that back, but maybe they had a new reason
such as (only a few of many POSSIBLE REASONS)
- they thought more people would buy Xbox versions because of the DLC
- they thought more people would buy the console rather than buying a PS3
- or maybe they just wanted to have at least one thing that they could definitely say they had on sony/ps3/other consoles
even if they didn't think of every aspect of it, which they possible did, they obviously thought it out a little and had a reason for it
just like R* had a reason for giving it to them, and Sony had a reason for possible getting DLC in the future, and R* had a reason for giving that to sony, and everything had/has a reason in life...
not trying to preach, but just think about it, it is highly improbable that a company that big would overlook something, even if they don't make as much money, chances are they realized that and had something else in mind
and yeah, things don't always go as planned, so maybe some things went awry for them and not as planned, but they still had a reason/expectations/plans/etc...
