I waited for IV to come out but I won't be doing no childish count-downs for DLC or any game anymore like I did for IV.

Neither will I get my hopes up too high.

I'm happy with IV but at the same time I want to stay on the safe-side because R* is full of sh*t with postin their flase AD's and features that never show up in the real game.

I'm right there with you brother.

I never was so excited about a game as I was for IV. I'll never do that again.

I expected the DLC to be in the end of the year. It was obvious.

Anyone really expected the first DLC in "August"?

Interesting that TakeTwo are regarding the episodic content to be on the same level as their full games (Midnight Club LA etc) in their release schedule, not wanting one to reduce sales of the other.

But isn't it just the episodic content that has been delayed? There "could" be other DLC coming, just not the biggie we we expecting. Not like I'm fussed as Multiplayer will keep me occupied until the end of summer.

Actually, it's never Rockstar. They give previews of their games, and magazine articles feel it's their duty to speculate the hell out of it, and make all sorts of wild assumptions about what they think will be in the game. So when it finally comes, everyone's disappointed tounge.gif

No... its Rockstar telling journalists things like "No wasted space" and "A lot of interiors" as well as "No loading times". And "Shaping your own destiny"? What the f*ck? Most of the stuff that was promised came straight from the mouth of either Houser or whoever was presenting the demo. Don't go blame people when it's the company themselves that lied.

Wow you're Full of sh*t Dude, read the interviews n previews again you haven't done your research Son!! there is actually no wasted space in LC, there are a lot of interiors you just have to find then, some of them are enormous n
there are No loading times whatsoever. just at the start, cut scenes n when entering 2 or so buildings !! stop blaming R* they told us everything that was going to be/not be in the game when the first previews were released.

How much of the hard drive will the DLC fill? Is this a silly question - I guess nobody will know yet?

Also I have the premium Xbox with the 20GB hard drive.
When I make saves on GTA4 it says I only have 9.9GB free memory?

I've not played any other games yet - I bought it for GTA4 blush.gif

Any help would be mucho appreciated.

There's only 13 GB of free space on it. The other 7 is reserved for some reason.

Ah I see, a tad confusing.

So GTA4 takes up 3.1GB then? I'm sure it was only supposed to use 1GB?

..Maybe I dreamt that one up. bored.gif

Well isn't that a surprise? Delayed GTA, delayed DLC. I wonder what else they're going to delay. I can't wait to find out.

Why would SR2 be delayed? Anything delayed by this is the PC version of the game.

SR was originally set to be released this summer but it was delayed probably because of GTA IV.

The official reason was to tighten up Coop - although not clashing with IV's DLC is probably also a reason.

SR2 is scheduled for October now I believe, and the first IV episode I would expect in December, just in time for the holiday season - if indeed it has been delayed, it could still be released in August but have revenue deferred.

That does make sense. Goddamn economy.

rockstar always push back their 'release dates' by ~6 months. but the extra time gives them a chance to put more into the product, making it better.

was anyone NOT expecting this?

PS3 isnt exclusive dlc. I think PS3 is getting something that both consoles get.

TBH, I sorta didn't.

The DLC was always "scheduled" for x number of months behind the main game. Even before the initial delay of the game there was announcements saying the first episode would be available on XBL 4 months after release. Then the game was delayed and it was announced the first episode would be available in August (again 4 months after release).

Oh, and not to argue - but I think IV should have been delayed another 6 months before release smile.gif
