Contract?

adrian949
i know for sure some sort of DLC will come out for ps3 that will also come out for xbox because R* is money interested and wouldnt ignore such a big market of gamers that could equal big dinero$$$$, there was ~ 3 million copies sold on ps3 in the first 5 days so just with that selling two $20 DLCs to just those earlyybirds would yield $120million in sales, i really dont think R* is that bad in business. What the DLC for ps3 will be, is unknown. But seeing how nothing has been mentioned about it, I honestly think it would be the same DLC just released a year later, i think that must companies wouldnt sign contracts that are forever. But even a year long contract is worth microsofts $50 million because that really off puts the ps3 users because honestly how interested would they be after almost 2 years of the games release.

 

And the only MGS4 would be released on xbox360 would be on multiple discs and for a good chunk of change, and it honestly doesnt seem like something that would come to reality, it would be the equivalent of Halo coming to ps3 which i know will never happen for many reasons.

 

And for the xbox360 being cheaper, for me buying a ps3 was a more financially sound decision. Because i aint going to buy a hundred dollar wireless adapter which is the only way to get internet to my console and i honestly dont enjoy or play online enough to pay a yearly fee but i wanted to have it. And once the next gen comes along and i buy a new console, i will have a really good blu ray player for my secondary HDTV and xbox360 owners will have a white paper weight. In the long run it makes sense to get a ps3 unless ur really fond 0f xbox exclusive games.

Adrian949.. I don't want to get into a fanboy war but saying the 360 will be just a paper weight is pretty funny. PS3 owners will also have a paper weight when the nextgen movies will all be downloads via a hardware appliance like the PS3 or xbox 360. DVD players will cease to exist within 5 years. Hell look at any store the selection of DVD players is pretty small and there are not that many bluray players on the market. Even with having bluray being the standard now.

 

The Xbox 360 is a gaming machine and a cheap xbox 360 plus a used wireless adapter can be had for 200.00 bucks. As far as MGS4 coming to the 360 vs Halo.. There is a big difference once again for the uninformed people. Halo is published by "Microsoft"

 

MGS4 is published by Konami.. Not Sony!! And most of the game is uncompressed audio and video that take up that space on the bluray disk. I am sorry but it can be easily compressed Bioware already proved that fact as did Rockstar.

 

But you can keep wishing that Lost and Damned is coming to the PS3 next year or whenever but the fact of the matter is it is published by Microsoft. Your chances of getting that are about 99.9% to .1

 

Not gonna happen. But anyways I am sure you can watch the videos once they go up and atleast see the story. Goodluck man.

U may be right about the MGS4 stuff. But with the way the economy is going there is no way consumers can afford to change movie mediums every f*cking 4-5 years and the amount of space on a harddrive for HD movies is pretty ridiculous, is everyone going to ditch there current players for harddrives with multiple terrabytes, i really dont think that makes sense in a finacianal sense. Maybe HD movies could be streamed, this would require a reworked infrastructure to allow such a high speed internet connection. I believe this could be possible and very pratical for non tech geek consumers in say ten years for having a fat hard drive but u most realize that next gen begins around 2010/2011, about 2 years, and really do not think this new technology would be introduced so quickly after blu ray. I say blu ray has a minimum of 5-8 years left.

 

Furthermore, if i bought the cheapest xbox360 i would not be able to download any DLC cause it only has about a 1/4gb of harddrive so i would have to buy the 300 dollar one plus the 100 dollar wireless router plus xbox live subscription which is already $400 without LIVE.

 

Any you obviously do not understand business, R* is a business which only serves one purpose and that is making money and not doing the right and just thing, and i know they wouldnt handicap themselves from the ps3 market forever with their contract with microsoft. You obviously have little knowledge on business, logic, and any knowledge in how to write out probabilites correctly. Sorry, i aint a ps3 fanboy, i really dont give a f*ck what u have to say about it, im just a anti-fanboy warrior that uses logic and well educated thoughts as weapons against them. monocle.gif

You ARE correct that R*'s purpose is to make money. You are wrong about how them not making a DLC for the PS3 is going to ruin their sales my friend. A 50 million dollar MS contract IS money. Your well educated thoughts are not well educated. Such as the statement " knowledge in how to write out probabilities correctly" And what further proves you are 12 years old is you calling yourself an " anti fan boy warrior "

 

Sorry my kind sir, but Rockstar and Microsoft have this agreement, it will not be released on PS3 EVER, and that is final. You coming here calling people who trying to help you out by telling you the truth fanboys and such is just stupid. I recall you having a nice little debate/chat with Nitara, then you realize you lost and can't win so you say " I DONT GIVE A f*ck WHAT U HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT "which also shows us you are 12 years old. That also is really not what to say during a debate, did you see Sarah Palin say that during her failure of a debate with VP Biden?

 

Furthermore, I don't think any of us want to hear you telling adults and people who have studied business or just people who plain know what their talking about they don't understand business. I know you have managed a couple of lemonade stands in your time, but that doesn't give you the right to say you know business better than adults.

LOL Adrian.. I am sorry but here is where I let your age and your lack of knowledge bite you in the ass...

 

First off from the very beginning Rockstar announced that the "DEFINITIVE" Gta 4 experience would be on the Xbox 360.. Why??? Because they were getting 2 exclusive episodes...

 

That does not mean that the PS3 wont get any episodes.. It just will not be Lost and Damned.. Now if you can't understand what "Published by Microsoft" means Then you should look it up.. This is where your lack of knowledge shows quite litterally..

 

Again with HD movies.. What part of compression did you not understand?

 

You do realize Music CD's are uncompressed Wave files right? What is an MP3? that is 20 times smaller then the actual file?

 

Bluray is not gonna last..LOL it is the standard and nobody is making bluray players... That is a key freaking sign.. Netflix and Blockbuster both announced the future is digtal downloads...

 

As far as Storage.. My god dude storage is cheap.... But regrdaless you will be ab le to store 100 movies on a hardware appliance that will be able to transfer its data when newer technology is available.. LOL what do you think people do with ther Ipods?

 

As for your numbers on the Xbox 360.. WTF do you need another router for?

 

Used Xbox 360 goes for 150.00 Comes with 20 Gig Drive

Used Wireless Adapter 50.00

Xbox Live Silver is free.. You only need to pay if you want to play multiplayer.. And furthermore every freaking game comes with free Xbox live time cards on top of if your strapped for 50 bucks a year then you dont have any money to by bluray movies that are 30 bucks a piece..

 

Once again I was trying to be nice.. But I will bitch slap you with facts when you make an ignorant post!

If you understood business you'd know if two public companies have a $50 million contract they do what the contract requires, because big deals have big, enforceable penalties for breaking them, and also trust is the only thing that makes future deals possible.

Thanks Bro!!!Seriously I hate to argue with people on this subject because I do feel for GTA fans who have PS3's.. But damn when you try and be civil and they act like 5 yearolds who had there toy taken away just ticks me off.

all i really was trying to say:

 

is that with the the number of ps3 copies of gtaiv out there it would be stupid to not make some sort of DLC to exploit the numbers for a profit for Rockstar but it would also be released on 360 for the sake, again, profit because it makes no sense to make different ones (not talking about the $50 million 360 exclusive)

 

the fact whether the microsoft contract has an expiration date or not, is debatable. because it would make sense for them to not state the conditions of their contract if it were to come out later on ps3 to make people go and buy a 360. but like i said i honestly think its debatable and only R* and microsoft know.

 

i was talking about new consoles, and why would buy a used console? especially with the 360 and its 3 rings of death.

 

i really dont understand compression what is the ratio of memory between compressed files and uncompressed

 

Im not 12, Im 19. honestly how old are you fools? and i really dont have time to sit and proofread my paragraphs.

 

when stating a ratio of the probability of two outcomes, you dont use percentiles, just numbers. (e.g. 50:50)

 

I like to talk sh*t/argue when i am not in best of moods.

I'm just waiting for Microsoft to buy Sony so people will stop hoping Sony will buy L&D. I'm sorry, any Ps3 owners, but 50 millions$ is hard for Sony to come up with...

 

I'm not bashing anyone! But people don't seem to get it straight. I even have sympathy for you. I wished everyone would have the L&D but Microsoft being...well Microsoft, they bought the R* newest episode's rights so people would buy more 360's.

 

EA buying a few companies, as I heard, and later on Mcdonalds owned by Microsoft. lol.gif "Would you like a Pc with that?"

Well we don't know how it exactly came about, whether Rockstar were planning on doing DLC and MS just happened to pre-empt this and throw their cash on the table for an exclusive or what. In the gaming world where DLC has become a big thing its easy to see Rockstar might of been thinking of it before being asked.

Didn't someone find unused code in San Andreas for loading mission packs? Meaning DLC was considered and rejected for San Andreas? It shows Rockstar was moving in that direction. I think the history of IV's DLC could go all the way back to 2004 or 2005. If I were Microsoft, I would have been calling Rockstar immediately after the Xbox version of San Andreas came out and tried to get the next GTA to be a 360 exclusive. If I were Rockstar, I would remember the history with Sony and say no to that. Exclusive DLC would be the logical compromise and that's what happened.

Idiot.

 

Rockstar had a longer history with Microsoft. Period.

 

Every GTA since GTA1 came out for Microsoft systems except for LCS, VCS, GTA Advance and Chinatown Wars. Pretty much handheld game only since Microsoft don't make them.

 

If you need a reason for the sony exclusivity for the GTA III era, it was due to music licensing and also due to the fact that Rockstar Games was an offshoot company from Sony BMG.

 

Also, the first GTA was developed for the PC platform, and every other major GTA game came out for the Xbox systems too. Rockstar Games could never refuse the Microsoft deal. They had a longer history with Microsoft than with Sony, and Sony also did nothing to stop it. And there was money on the table.

 

"Business is Business"

 

Rockstar told you your answer.

After the PS2/Xbox generation, Rockstar had history with BOTH, and you should know the current ownership/management of Rockstar only goes back to GTA III. By 2004 there was no reason to say yes to GTA IV being 100% Microsoft exclusive or Sony exclusive. Rockstar wanted Microsoft's money and also to be on both next-gen platforms. The DLC deal let Rockstar get everything Rockstar wanted, Microsoft got a partial exclusive, and Sony didn't lose GTA IV entirely.

Sorry Adrian but you in fact said the PS3 would get the same DLC, 1 year later. Do not back out from that statment.

 

You then state that the contract is debatable.. LOL what part of Rockstar saying the "Definitive" GTA 4 experience would be on the Xbox 360 did you not understand ... Knock Knock Hello Hello McFly!!!

 

Quite honestly I dont care if your 12 or 19, your attitude doesn't give you the right to take it out on anyone here. And the only fool is you sir.

 

You have been weighed, measured, and found wanting..Next time don't talk sh*t about stuff you have no idea about.

Well we don't know how it exactly came about, whether Rockstar were planning on doing DLC and MS just happened to pre-empt this and throw their cash on the table for an exclusive or what. In the gaming world where DLC has become a big thing its easy to see Rockstar might of been thinking of it before being asked.

Didn't someone find unused code in San Andreas for loading mission packs? Meaning DLC was considered and rejected for San Andreas? It shows Rockstar was moving in that direction. I think the history of IV's DLC could go all the way back to 2004 or 2005. If I were Microsoft, I would have been calling Rockstar immediately after the Xbox version of San Andreas came out and tried to get the next GTA to be a 360 exclusive. If I were Rockstar, I would remember the history with Sony and say no to that. Exclusive DLC would be the logical compromise and that's what happened.

It actually goes way way deeper than that - good eye.

 

What you are seeing right now is only a preview of many many games located in Liberty City. Think of this as Video Games' version of one of Hollywood's favorite shoot locations. I think there will be lots and lots of games done in the GTA locations we all know and love.

all i really was trying to say:

 

is that with the the number of ps3 copies of gtaiv out there it would be stupid to not make some sort of DLC to exploit the numbers for a profit for Rockstar but it would also be released on 360 for the sake, again, profit because it makes no sense to make different ones (not talking about the $50 million 360 exclusive)

 

the fact whether the microsoft contract has an expiration date or not, is debatable. because it would make sense for them to not state the conditions of their contract if it were to come out later on ps3 to make people go and buy a 360. but like i said i honestly think its debatable and only R* and microsoft know.

 

i was talking about new consoles, and why would buy a used console? especially with the 360 and its 3 rings of death.

 

i really dont understand compression what is the ratio of memory between compressed files and uncompressed

 

Im not 12, Im 19. honestly how old are you fools? and i really dont have time to sit and proofread my paragraphs.

 

when stating a ratio of the probability of two outcomes, you dont use percentiles, just numbers. (e.g. 50:50)

 

I like to talk sh*t/argue when i am not in best of moods.

I too also saw u posting in different threads saying that PS3 will have everything that xbox has. what u gotta understand is,

 

Microsoft has got R* by the balls.

Why would they be bluffing? THEY ARE A MULTI f*ckING TRILLION DOLLAR COMPANY!

 

 

You're making me want to f*cking strangle a baby.

 

Your right they will not care about exclusivity after a year, but just because they don't " care " doesn't mean the contract will expire. They aren't going to contact R* saying " Oh hey guy's, it's Microsoft. You want us to rip up the contract so you can sell it on the PS3 now? We have NP with that so you can earn extra money "

 

Jesus Christ almighty man.

 

If you're 19 what is your major in college? Is it like engineering or something along those lines because you really don't understand any type of business procedures.

Law enforcement, which reminds me if you love guns like me than look up Frontsight, dude knows his sh*t. And to that adrian dude, have you suddenly forgotten that Bill Gate's IS the richest motherf*cker on the planet, owns Microsoft, so that means it's his, that guy won't ever let any other company gain profit off of what is essentially "his" wake up and smell reality, money owns the world and so does Bill Gates, that was a joke about the owning the world crap. But for real it doesn't matter if your 19, I know 45 year olds that say what they don't really know all the time.

That's right, he took the $ (about 50 billion) out of M$ and now it's just MS.

because R* would not handicap themselves to the ps3 and pc market, but in there contract it would say that they cannot speak of the conditions of their exclusivity and obviously microsoft wouldnt want to state the conditions either. Thats what im saying that could be happening right now and the exclusivity is pretty ambiguous that could allow a situation like that. And R* could in fact by the rights back and/or maybe they ll come out with a third that comes out to all three systems.

 

Thats a terrible thing to do to a baby.

 

Im doing premed right now at UCR im technically listed as Undeclared: Physical Science but Im switching to Business: Economics but i only have taken macroeconomics and statistics because Im finishing my Premed classes first and other requirements to graduate.

 

And i think Bill Gates has recently stepped down from head of Microsoft

THEY WILL NOT BUY THE RIGHTS BACK!

 

I don't want to be rude Adrian BUT SHUT THE f*ck UP AND GET OUT OF THIS THREAD YOUR PISSING EVERYONE OFF JESUS CHRIST!

 

 

 

About Gates- Gates is still the non-executive chairman of Microsoft and if he wants something done it will be done.

I predict that once sales of the DLC on 360 slow down or stop, Rockstar might let PS3 have it for extra cash.

Op asks for no fanboys, but he gets them anyway. Gotta love these forums.

 

Anyway OP, I am not sure if it will coem to the PS3 man. Despite the fact tha I am a Sony fan, I also own a 360 Elite, but I bought GTA IV for the PS3. Sony is struggling hard right now, and I honestly do not see R* making such an investment. On top of that, GTA IV sold more copies on the 360 than on the PS3, so I am sure that R* are looking at that fact as well. Then again, they may feel that more money coming in from another system is best. So know one really knows for sure. More than Likely I will be getting TLAD for the 360, but I won't rush to get it.

 

Another thing is that M$ did pay 50 Million Dollars to have the content exclusive to their console. Yes, i hate to pull that card all the time, but it is true. I can't see Sony doing that for some reason.

Thanks Irviding, and I didn't mean too piss off everyone who is up on the times with Bill Gates life, and I think he's a douche, just my opinion, but he is a rich and powerful douche none the less. And I agree about that Adrian kid angry.gif.

Slow down or not, it will happen. It's a timed exclusive.
