Contract?

Does $50 Million sound like a timed exclusive, if so that $50 Million is totally pointless.

Exactly. That's called a 'timed exclusive', and there's a high possibility that Rockstar's contract with Microsoft for TLAD is a timed exclusive as well.

 

and there's an even higher possibility that $50 million bought Microsoft a really insanely-long period of time.

 

It boggles my mind: here we are, those of us with 360's are literally hours from playing the game and the PS3 owners don't even have so much as a hint of DLC in their future and they're still up to their necks in denial.

 

People say they get mad at seeing 360 owners playing the "$50 million" card but it's time to wise up: that's a lot of money standing between you and the content you so desperately want and that needs to be accepted and acknowledged.

 

You can put optimistic (or desperate, depending on how you look at it) spins on the whole situation all you want but the fact of the matter is this: Microsoft made this deal to deprive Sony of this content and to give the people who want to play it no choice but to play it on a piece of Microsoft hardware. By it's very nature this deal is something that is going to upset a lot of people but for better or worse the deal was made and we all need to accept the reality of the situation.

 

If you want to play this content you need to buy an Xbox 360. End of story.

To Jordy GTA was not exclusive to the PS2, because it also came out on Xbox and PC.

 

It was exclusive, but some time later it was released for PC and Xbox.

Yeah, and Call Of Duty 2 was "exclusive" to the PC until it came out on Xbox 360.

 

 

If it wasn't exclusive, why did you buy a 360?

Because I didn't want to wait a year for it to come out? And besides, I'd need to upgrade my PC. But alright, I can't really be bothered to convince people about L&D's exclusivity anymore. tounge.gif

Can't wait until Tuesday when threads like this won't be looked upon kindly.

 

I remember when most of these guys didn't care about the DLC "oh it's just going to be a few new cars and weapons" they said

 

But when R* did the reveal with different characters, and new play elements it dawned on them that they would be missing out big time. Hence these silly threads looking for anyone to post some silly link saying that's it coming out on this or that. Even after people have pointed to the cast iron statements by people who know, that it's not coming out anywhere else.

 

The purpose of this experiment is twofold and is beneficial for both MS and R*. MS gets loads of new subscribers to their Xbox Live service and R* gets to try a risky move and release an add on digitally. Both will reap the rewards of this. If Sony had been smart enough they would have approached R* about this before development started.

 

Maybe next time they'll dip their hands in there pockets and stump up the cash.

 

Looks like if you want the game you're going to either have to find a friend who has a 360 and will be purchasing it. Or suck it up and get a 360.

Keep dreaming pal.

 

I don't take any satisfaction in the idea of this content being unavailable to PS3 owners in general but I do find it satisfying that people like you can't play it.

 

But yeah, in less than 40 hours I'll be playing the game and you'll be posting here about how you're gonna be playing it someday, with no information to back that up I might add.

 

It's beautiful.

@ Azazel: Oh okay then.

 

So anyway, how can we find out if the contract will expire or not? Or is it just not possible?

I think you can ask Microsoft or Take 2. I'm pretty sure you have to have a high status in either company to know.

As far as i see it M$ coughed alot of money for it to have 2 exclusive episodic packs for the xbox360. This doesn't rule the PS3 out for getting DLC, just not these 2.

 

I mean they could release a third universal DLC thats for both platforms, perhaps Packie or Roman(before niko came). 50 million dollars is alot of money to throw around just for DLC. So can someone just please close this thread and all this bashing on the xbox getting this.

IMO all this exclusive nonsense is gonna effect all of us negatively in the long run. I hate all this exclusive crap. I would LOVE to play Lost and Dammned, every day I check the forums and watch the trailers thinking "wow I wish I could play that." But what I hate is when people like Guru go rubbing it in peoples faces that its:

 

A. Their problem for Sony not investing in DLC.

B. Its good that hard working PS3 owners cant get DLC.

C. Acting as if somehow 360 deserve DLC where no one else does and look down upon us because we aint getting now exclusive content.

 

Even if I owned a 360 I would still hate the exclusive idea and love the idea of all owners being able to buy this content. WE ALL paid our hard working cash for the consoles and the game and also gave our money to Rockstar so for that I feel spat on to be isolated from such content. I feel as if we ps3 owners deserve the content. I worked hard to get the console and game so the least the publisher can do is make the content available to everyone. I know buisness is buisness but its trademark greed and unfair to all of us.

 

The fact is when I got my ps3 and IV I didnt even know DLC was developed exclusively for the 360. It was only a few months into joining this forum did I find out. Hell, call me a noob but I hardly had any clue what DLC was like. I thought it was small stuff like the extra maps in CODIV.

 

Dont blame us ps3 owners, its not our fault Sony played this generation like ignorant retards. I hate to admit it but its true. The only thing they did right was make multiplayer free. I mean just look at the arrogance of the overpriced consoles when it first game out. 600 bucks? wtf is that? And they have the audacity to wonder why it was selling so badly at first, then in an embarrasing atempt to make the console sell they lower the price by a couple of hundred! It was almost humerous to understand. At the time however I was naive. I got my 40gb ps3 for about 300 if I remember correctly and a couple of games so I thought it was a bargain price (which was true as far as ps3's went at the time). I had no clue about GTA IV's DLC. It was stupid to wait so long to release the console a couple of years after the 360's release. As soon as the 360 came out I thought "hang on, sony are gonna have a bit of trouble. Its a next gen console and sony's ps3 is still in development."

 

I wont let the same mistake happen the next time round. Im gonna do my research, if sony are gonna follow the same route I might just head over to my first ever xbox which im dreading but if im gonna get a better expiriance then so be it.

 

I know deep down im not gonna play TLAD or the next episode all I can do is keep by fingers crossed, look out for any info if it comes and just hope..

I myself definitely don't want to "punish" anyone and I think that exclusivity deals are bullsh*t, but it's a bit silly when a handful PS3 owners forget about the exclusivity Sony got for 5 years last generation, nevermind the Stories and go on a 90s-Slashdot Bill Gates "M$ is evil" rampage.

Yeah, really.

 

Anyone forget about the Stories games? I sold my PS2 a while ago and was without a console until I bought a 360 at the beginning of December, and I don't have a PSP ( I might go and buy one just for the stories games, still debating it ) basically I have been fine living without the stories games, so I think you guys will be fine living without the DLC.
