Look, MS paid 1.5 mill? for EXCLUSIVE DC (those of yous that don't understand exclusive, look up a dictionary..) If they paid money for us not to get it, guess what, we ain't gonna be getting it..

As for the hopes of a 3rd set of DC, not gonna happen. GTA has been out for close to a year, give it a couple of years and the new one should hopefully be out.

Why even bother getting your hopes up when its EXCLUSIVE to the 360.

 

Sorry to burst your bubbles but come on, i'v accepted it. Time for yous to aswell..

Yes we all know that, and we know that monster steve balmer emphasized the importance of DLC and micro payments as being the future of platform gaming[as their responce to their failure of the HD disc] i bet they're agressively trying to get rid of their competitors in that same market..but that wont happen.. cause we got Kroes colgate.gif

Exactly, this is same like Little Big Planet, a lot of people wanted it on the Xbox360 too but guess what it didn't come so it's simple get over it.

OR BUY BOTH CONSOLES in the worst case.

There has been very little discussion of the terms of the deal-- this article has some of the details.

 

http://www.gamecareerguide.com/industry_ne...c_strategy_.php

 

It sounds as if Take two doesn't receive any revenue from the episodic content until sales reach at least $35 million (1.75 million copies) for each episode-- beyond that, take two gets 100% of the royalties--

 

This is speculation assuming there is a excluvisity release in the deal-- which may or may not exist- which is the big question between the PS3 and xbox fanboys-- I don't know how hard it would be to port the content over to PS3-- I imagine it wouldn't be too hard/expensive.

 

[speculation]

Those sales levels may be the level in which MS releases take two from the exclusivity deal, if the sales fall short then take two would have to pony up (at least) the difference in order to be released-- essentially MS advanced take two $25 million for each episode in royalties-- will earn 10 million more back per episode if they reach 1.75 million sales, and hopefully for them, increase their xbox sales and XBL subscriptions-- this was actually a pretty good deal for MS if it works out.... however they will not get any direct benefit (only indirect benefit from console sales and XBL subscription) from any sales above 1.75 million.

 

On the other side of this, if the sales fall way short (which I doubt will happen), the only way for MS to recoup their investment would be to allow take two to release this on PS3 so they can collect royalties for on PS3 sales to pay back the advance MS made to take two

[/speculation]

 

Either way, take two is going to have a lean year unless their Xbox sales of this DLC is really high-- as they realized their episodic content revenue in the last fiscal year, so will see alot less if any in the coming year.

 

Once again-- I don't believe there is an exclusivity release for the PS3-- if there were, there would be a significant buyout-- not paid by sony but by take two so they can earn money off their creation.

Once again, I still don't forsee PS3 getting this content under any circumstances, however, PS3 will Definitely not get it unless xbox sells > 1.75 million of each episode--so urge all your xbox buddies to buy this content

Around here, the Xbox 360 owners seem to be under the belief that Microsoft owns the content and the exclusivity is permanent. The thing is, nobody actually knows the terms of the contract. It could be permanent, timed or as you said.

 

No doubt that somebody will come in and rant about how Microsoft paid $50 million. It was likely an advance that Microsoft handed over so that Rockstar didn't have to fork out $50 million of their own. It doesn't mean that they own it. Everything that anybody says about it is mere speculation.

I totally agree-- MS does not own the content-- if there is a release it would likely include a significant payout by take two to MS....-- an insignificant amount to M$ wink.gif

Rockstar own the content, but MS will own it to a degree. Why shell out cash on something and not reap the benefits?

Again, PS3 owners need to simply consider the $50 million deal and accept that for that kind of money Microsoft either made a deal that prohibits the content from ever being released on PS3 or prevents it from being released any time soon.

 

Even if it expires you can rest assured that Microsoft got an expiration date that won't occur within a reasonable timeframe. Maybe it will expire in 10 years when nobody gives a crap anymore. I would have liked to get the "Stories" games for Xbox at the same time the PS2 got them but now I just don't care. Microsoft may even have access to those titles now but there's very little demand or interest in them at this point and even if (and that's a very, very big "if") PS3 gets it it could very well be a similar situation.

 

I mean, if it takes 5 or 10 years to get the content and everyone has Xbox 720 and Playstation 4 is anyone even going to give a crap? I don't think so. Even if the content is great it will be outdated and superceded by superior content by then. Again, I've only heard good things about the "Stories" games but they're a huge step down from more recent games.

And there it is. $50 million. That's all anybody around here talks about without even knowing what the terms of the agreement are. If Rockstar have always intended to make new content available for GTA IV, it's more likely that they've given a short timed exclusive of 6-18 months before it's released multiplatform.

 

Sure they could have released another game in that time band but some people may still be interested in playing through and finishing off the loose ends of Niko's saga.

You seem to be the polar opposite to the way you believe PS3 owners are. You're blinded by the fact that Microsoft handed over $50 million and seem to somehow believe that it prevents Rockstar from ultimately doing what they want to do with their own content. I don't think I've seen a single post by you on this board that doesn't have "$50 million" written in it at least once.

 

I may seem rather stubborn in my thoughts that the content could make its way to the PS3. Honestly I'm not so bothered by it now as I was. I've already grown tired of IV and moved on to other games.

Did you read the article I linked to??... http://www.gamecareerguide.com/industry_ne...c_strategy_.php

 

they paid a royalty advance to take two-, they didn't pay them for the content outright- with a maximum of a $70,000,000 repayment amount-- it was essentially a loan to take two that plays to MS intent to get the content to xbox at least initially-- it provides take two with at least a guarantee of a profit on the DLC depending on the production costs of the DLC-- they will guarantee a net profit-- it benefits MS in several ways:

 

1. If the DLC reaches its target of 1.75 million per episode MS will earn $20,000,000 on their loan-- a pretty good return.

2. Xbox gets it first and it may draw users to get xbox consoles and with that about 75% of those people should end up with XBL subscriptions (where MS tends to really benefit).

 

Take two gets a guaranteed profit above their production costs.... so it benefits them in that respect- I don't understand why Take Two would limit any upside they could reap from the content though-- so in that respect why would they enter into such a one sided agreement, ignoring 40% of their customers. It isn't as if MS held all the cards in the deal.

 

That all being said, I don't know the details of the exclusivity part of the contract (as none of you do either)-- so I will admit it is possible it was written so as to permanently exclude PS3 customers from the content, however, it isn't out of the possibility that take two retained rights to do with the content as they please after so much time has passed and/or if certain sales are made or with a buyout clause. And I do agree with you, it won't be 10 years out when no one cares-- it will be within 12-18 months. If it doesn't occur in that time frame, its not going to happen-- if we don't hear anything by the end of next year, we will all know one way or the other.

 

I'm not arrogant enough to say it definitely will come to PS3--

 

I don't understand how you all can be so sure it won't come to PS3- you won't even admit there is a possibility of it??

 

Once again, I'm not saying it will come to PS3 and it very likely won't.

 

Now all you xbox players go out and buy it so MS gets their loan back-- get out there and preorder-- enjoy your "exclusive" DLC... if I don't get it I'm going to borrow an Xbox from a friend of my wife's kid-- so will get to play it one way or the other.

I have a Xbox 360, PS3 and a PC with a decent spec so I'm fine with it staying exclusive to 360. My $0.02 is that it will be on PC by next october-dec regardless of how it sells. Then the other the following year.

 

The only way I could see TLAD & EP2 ever gracing PS3 is as a method of last resort is if it fails THAT drastically that they couldn't possibly recuperate their losses on a PC version alone. But that is just not going to happen and simply by the act of speculating upon this content they've probably made more money from that $50 in IV/360/XBL sales then the content can feasibly generate in downloads, so I don't think PS3 will ever get it or particularly needs it. In February at the same time PS3's got the Killzone 2 Launch which will probably get more coverage and air time and replay value.

To all PS3 owners:

 

If you want the DLC just do what microsoft did..buy it. But you do not need to cash up 50 million dollars just enough money to get a 360 and IV + DLC. Very simpel

 

I wanted a PS3 more than 360 at first but seeing the DLC would be exclusive to 360 there was no reason to buy PS3. So I guess all GTA fans buying a PS3 did not want the DLC anyway. So why complaining about it now? Or did you miss this news back in 2006?

That amount of money should essentially blind you to everything else. I've said it before and I'll say it again: $50 million pretty much trumps everything else.

 

Also, it stands to reason that the highest amount of money ever paid for exclusivity on a video game is going to have unprecedented exclusivity. Again, it's common sense.

 

Until proven otherwise it's a safe bet that Microsoft got the best exclusive deal ever when they paid more than anyone's ever paid for that exclusivity and you can count on that until proven otherwise.

 

and there isn't a shred of evidence that suggests otherwise. Just a lot of people spreading their wishful thinking online. That, too, is easily trumped by $50 million.

Nowhere does it even suggest that exclusivity wasn't a major component of that deal. It obviously was. Money exchanged hands. Microsoft is getting something in exchange for that money. What they're getting is a guarantee that you'll need to buy their product to play this content. How this is even up for debate is beyond me.

 

Again, PS3 owners need to look at the sum of money in question here and understand that Microsoft paid Rockstar a lot of money to keep this content all to themselves. Every bit of evidence supports that, period.

Microsoft paid $50 million as an advance for the content to be developed. Not the exclusivity. They could have paid $1 million for the exclusivity. They could have paid $0.02. Or they could have paid nothing for the exclusivity and just asked that Rockstar give them some exclusivity as a thank you for the advance.

Realistically, it isnt going to cost anywhere near $50mil to develop two episodes, Im pretty sure exlcusivity will be tied into that figure. As for exclusivity as a favour, it just wouldnt happen, if it isnt contracted it wont hold water and Sony would have free reign to get their own DLC developed.

 

I dont have any fanboy feelings on this subject, but basically Sony arent in the right shape to throwing that kind of cash around and I think they will be content to let it slide and concentrate on other titles. They already canned two major titles this year, and if this DLC falls on its arse, then they havent run that risk.

Or they could have paid nothing for the exclusivity and just asked that Rockstar give them some exclusivity as a thank you for the advance.

 

Or the whole amount could be what was paid for exclusivity (and is, by common sense). Do you honestly think Microsoft paid them a $50 million advance for something that could be released on the PS3? Did they do it out of the kindness of their hearts?

 

It's like the PS3 losers can't see the forest for the trees. It's really not that complicated: this deal exists to keep this content on the 360. You can sit around all day and think of a bunch of interpretations that are absolutely batsh*t crazy and hope that somebody won't point out the inherent flaws but again, the $50 million deal trumps everything.

 

Microsoft paid $50 million and they're getting exclusive access to the content. Sony paid nothing, they're getting nothing.

 

The simplicity of it is beautiful,

 

But then again, the hoops that PS3 owners are jumping through to assure themselves that they're getting it in spite of all evidence? Well those hoops are beautiful too.

 

As an Xbox 360 owner I'm getting "The Lost and Damned" in 50 days and in the mean time I'll be entertained by some of the most glorious stupidity I've ever experienced online. Thanks a bunch!

You think they developed the episodes for free?

 

Read this

 

People seem to be under the belief that Microsoft paid just for the exclusivity and Rockstar must have used $50 million of their own money in developing these episodes or magically developed them for free somehow.

 

They paid $100 million to develop the game. Another $25 million to develop each episode. They've put reportedly another 10 hours of gameplay into the first episode whereas the main game was reported at around 30 hours.

 

So it would definitely be possible to spend that $25 million in developing another 10 hours of gameplay with all the new animations for characters and the new vehicles and weapons and the new multiplayer content and the voice over work and all the after work of publishing and so on. And there's other expenses such as electricity to power their equipment for developing the game among other things, water and coffee or tea bags for drinks to keep them going along with food. It all adds up very quickly.

 

So do you still think Microsoft spent $50 million purely for exclusivity rights?

 

 

As an extra note, if this new content flops and Rockstar doesn't bring in enough money to pay back the advance to Microsoft and therefor has to use their own money to pay back the advance, don't you think they'd want to look at other ways of bringing back in that money so they're not out of pocket? Say, releasing their content across the other platforms?

Can you PS3 fanboys not get it into your tiny head that THE PS3 WILL NOT GET THE LOST AND THE DAMMED CONTENT AND THE OTHER PACK. Oh and before you start saying you don't know how good a PS3 is cause u own a stupid xbox well yes I do know how good a PS3 is. I own both. /me likes the xbox more

I also own both but I like the PS3 better, of the exclusive games i've played for both consoles i've had much more fun with Uncharted, Little Big Planet and resistance 2 than I have with Fable 2 and Mass effect, Fable 2 bored me and I just didn't enjoy Mass Effect no matter how much I wanted to.

Also I find that the x-box has more lag and Fable 2 has quite a few freezing issues where I then have to mess about re-setting the console.

Plus online play is free to PS3 and it's no better or worse than the x-box service.

And finally when I quit a game on PS3 i'm not instantly re-directed to a blatant advertisement of the latest thing for sale.

This ain't fanboy talk, this is just my personal opinion and I, like many others on here, am entitled to that.

Having said all of that above though I will be getting the DLC but if this very slim chance of it ever coming to PS3 actually becomes a reality then i'll sell my x-box, get some cash, some new PS3 games and the DLC on PS3.

As Guru said, why would Microsoft fund development of DLC without any decent exclusivity? If they were that benevolent, they'd have funded the original game so PS3 could have it without Sony paying a penny. Considering they have 90% of the world's PC market, I can't see Microsoft being that helpful to anyone but themselves.

Microsoft paid $50 million to ensure that PS3 owners will never get the first two episode packs. Accept it, fanboys, and move on.

 

If there's a third episode pack there's nothing keeping it off PS3 but unless Sony coughs up money for their own exclusive DLC it will be available to both PS3 and Xbox 360 owners. I'd imagine that Microsoft's deal probably includes something that prohibits them from turning around and dealing with Sony.

 

So, this is the reality of the situation:

 

Episode pack #1 (The Lost and Damned) Xbox 360 only. EVER.

Episode pack #2: Xbox 360 only. EVER.

Episode pack #3: nobody knows if there will be a third pack but Microsoft's deal only covers 2. There is no Sony exclusivity deal so it could possibly be on both but again, there's nothing suggesting there will be more than 2.

 

But again, PS3 owners, you're not getting this content, and all the desperate online "wishful thiking" posts in the world aren't going to make up for the $50 million Microsoft paid to deprive you of playing this expansion.

well damn Microsoft for being console Racist, i have a 360 and love that we have DLC to come but purposely depriving PS3 of this is just mean, ID RATHER DIE THAN HATE

Probably a good thing you sold it then and not now. Unless Take-Two's shares aren't currently crashing in this economy.

about $8/share last I checked....

 

I bought it looking for the IV bump (got it early with the EA hostile takeover bid) bought it in 06-- got a similar bump off of SA by buying in 03.

 

GTAs do well--- I urge everyone to buy stock about 12-18 months before a new GTA is released an hold it til after the release date-- then buy both consoles and a large flat screen with your earnings.

It's not their content. It's Microsofts.

I hope you don't seriously believe this.

I'm sure Sony has paid Rockstar Games more then $50 Million to make "GTA:III Canon" a "timed" Playstation 2 Exclusive game series (this numbers are not official, just my opinion).

 

Please can everyone just shut up and wait? I can wait another 10 months for the next GTA but IN MY OPINION this downloadable contents are "timed exclusive." This is my opinion and please don't quote my post to say "50 million dollaaerss!"

 

Thanks.
