Contract?

What we really need is a definitive statement from R*/Microsoft telling us what exactly is happening.

 

 

btw I have a 360 so its win-win for me. colgate.gif

You don't know that for sure, and no fanboy crapola to my comment, it's a fact that your information is not confirmed, period. And I was referring to deyessorc or whatever.

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

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

How do you know it's timed? Or is it a theory?

If I paid 50 million for something.. believe that there wouldn't be a time attached to it. Microsoft owns it.. get it through your thick skull.

IT WILL NEVER COME OUT ON PS3! GET IT THROUGH YOUR HEADS PEOPLE AND STOP SAYING IT WILL!

 

Let me restate what I said earlier- If it is a timed contract:

 

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 and our competitors will gain money "

 

This thread needs a close, for Christs sake it just keeps going on and on with these people.

Every post in this thread is speculation, whether is's typed IN BIG UPPERCASE LETTERs or not. No one (let me type that again) NO ONE in this thread knows for sure what the exclusivity agreement between Rockstar and Microsoft is or how far it goes.

I myself would be extremely surprised if TLAD never comes to the PS3, because that seems like a very poor business strategy, to alienate a portion of their fan base.

 

Besides, never say never. Sega said Sonic would never appear in a Nintendo game, and now he's on every system.

I know what you mean about how it is a poor business strategy to alienate a a portion of their fan base.

 

But for gods sake, it is DEVELOPED BY MICROSOFT. The fact that that is written on the case means it will not go to anyone else.

 

As I said, if in the future theres a chance it will, they still won't release it because how many PS3 fans are going to in two years buy an extremely outdated episode pack for a game that is a year or two old that they already know the complete story of and probably watched youtube videos of the entire game from beginning to end?

 

It just isn't realistic.

I completely agree, and years after the orginal release of the gta games for the ps2, they also came to the xbox, and I had a feeling of "been there, played that."

 

If the PS3 does manage to get this DLC, it'll be right about the time that GTA 4 is a greatest hits title, or they'll sell all the DLCs with it in one package, like a gold edition or something (my speculation.) At any rate, if you wanna play as a badass biker, you better have an xbox biggrin.gif

Wasnt it Rockstar saying that xbox360 is gonna be the only system that people will get the full experience from GTA 4 while they were discussing about DLC few months before GTA 4's release?

That's because all the PS3 fanboys are too jealous of something they want to give up hope of getting it. I honestly can't believe people are debating this.

Rockstar has broken every exclusivity promise so far (every GTA III era game), so i don't see why they wouldn't break this one

Because a 50 million bucks deal is a bit much to break, don't you think? confused.gif

I see what your getting at, but Rockstar have always said things that turn out differently later on, like 'Liberty City Stories will be exclusive for the PSP' a month or two later... 'Liberty City Stories will be coming out for PS2'

 

The same thing happened with GTA 3, VC, SA and VCS. Oh yeah, and GTA IV, now that they've released it for PC.

 

So basically, what Rockstar says don't mean jack sh*t.

So basically, what Rockstar says don't mean jack sh*t.

1. PSP and PS2 are both Sony products, in case you didn't notice.

2. The VCS and LCS STILL haven't come out on any other platforms, so yeah, no 360/PC owner has complained about that yet but as soon as a silly little DLC is announced definitively exclusive 2 years ago, we still see PS3 owners crying and wishing that Rockstar would violate the contract and go into deep legal trouble with Microsoft, just because they made a poor decision buying the PS3.

3. No one ever said that GTA IV wouldn't come out on the PC.. if anyone did, it was a small number of console owners (mostly PS3, because back then they thought it was the second coming of Jesus due to the Cell processor) arguing that "PCs couldn't handle it."

 

 

If you really want to complain about the DLC's exclusivity, then do so but while ALSO complaining about the Stories not having come out on other platforms besides Sony's. smile.gif I think it's a fair deal that you get your Stories, and "we" get the DLC (which by the way will be shorter than the Stories).

I am pretty sure that I made my decision in buying a 360. But, none of you saw what's written on the contract papers. Maybe it is a timed exclusive? Or full time exclusive? Who knows.

Didn't you read the part where I mentioned GTA 3 VC and SA? They were exclusive to PS2 but then moved to PC and Xbox.

 

''3. No one ever said that GTA IV wouldn't come out on the PC''

 

Rockstar said it themselves 'Grand Theft Auto IV will be exclusive to the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3' meaning that PC won't be getting it. BUT IT DID.

I actually do know how a contract works.

For example, fooball(soccer icon13.gif ). Cristiano Ronaldo has a contract with manchester united till 2012. The club pay him the money, so he doesn't leave the club. But as all football freaks now, his heart is at real madrid. How is this similar to m$ and r* you say? Easy.

 

Microsoft has a contract with R* that includes money to stop it from coming to the ps3. But R* can easily break the promise can they?

thats minor tho. Even if Liberty city stories came out for PSP then later to PS2, its still sony. no differences. The thing is with you PS3 people, you guys compare the minor stupid sh*t to a major sh*t. was there a contract stating that Vice city and GTA 3 will only be Sony/PS2 Exclusive? Not that i know of... or was there a contract stating that VCS and LCS are PSP exclusive? no. R* never said GTA 4 wasnt gonna come out to PC, everyone knew that it would but for acouple of months. all that sh*t u listed is minor,

 

what u PS3 ppl dont get is R* cant back down on a 50 mil contract. and thats what microsoft payed for DLC. Sony didnt pay. So dont compare minor thing R* said about PSP VCS GTA 4 on PC ect, ect. They may have lied about that in the past, but 50 million wasnt at stake. and IF R* decided to ignore microsoft contract and make a DLC for PS3 anyways, i think that GTA 4 will be the last GTA game they make consider Microsoft will sue them.

this is what I don't understand about PS3 owners.

 

I was a Nintendo loyalist until the PS2 came out and because the GameCube sucked. PS2 was amazing.

 

I was a PlayStation loyalist until the 360 came out. The 360 has much better online multiplayer experience, has better games, some of them even exclusives. Microsoft treats it's customers very well, for instance spending FIFTY MILLION DOLLARS on a DLC for us ONLY.

 

So to me, you PS3 owners are the ones who made a bad decision. You should have bought a 360. Sell your PS3 and buy a 360 is my advice. It's the better console.

 

Microsoft is the winning team. You want to enjoy being on the winning team? Buy a 360. It's awesome being a customer to a company who will pay anything to get it's players great stuff

The Wii is not much of a video game console. It sells well because is is entertaining and its the kind of thing people can do for 20 minutes a day. Its not made for people who like to play competitive games online.

I gave the wii to my parents and it's at their house, not at my place anymore. When we have family dinners we all play the sports crap in it and my grandparents and parents aunts uncles have a ball with it.

 

the Wii isn't for competitive online play.
