Im sure we PC and PS3 user will see EFLC in about six months.

I don't see the point releasing it 6 months or later for the PS3. It's like releasing Halo 3 on Playstation 3 suicidal.gif

Well if the rumors are true then MS paid R* for timed exclusives. and they had to make two episodes. now the two episodes has been made for the Xbox. therefore the contract is fulfilled and they can port it to ps3 and PC.

Rockstar hasn't said anything about a PS3 version. Nor have they dropped hints. They have simply declined to comment. That's normal because their policy is to not comment on rumours, incorrect or otherwise. Who cares what anybody else, such as IGN, have to say on the matter. What do they know?

No. They don't comment on rumors. This is not a rumor. R* would of came out and said that EFLC would never be coming on the PS3. But no. R* love to squash rumors and they love their fans to.

Oh, for God's sake! Rockstar could officially announce that the DLC is never coming to the PS3 and we'd still have delusional people coming up with false evidence and baseless rumors to keep their hopes alive. This thread, and all similar ones, are nothing short of pathetic.

You do know that "Rockstar isn't commenting rumors" bullsh*t is years old and it's just a false statement? Lots of people thought that the next PSP title would be San Andreas Stories after Vice City Stories, and that was a rumor if you ask me. And still, they've replied in an interview that they didn't get rid of the idea completely.

 

So that's all about R* not responding to rumors mate... they are just greedy bastards and want to get more money out of you by leaving you with only one chance to play these DLCs on, the sexbox360.

 

I'm not a fanboy since I do own a PC and an Xbox 360 too, but it's pretty obvious that this exclusivity is only timed. The reason they aren't shouting "IT'S COMING TO PS3 AND PC TOO YO BITCHEEEZZ" is because they want to get more money out of the X360 version. That's how they did it every time since the release of the first 3D GTA and that's how they are going to continue it. dozingoff.gif

Charming charlie said he would ban anyone who told others to buy an xbox for the dlcs.

 

Well, your guess is as good as mine in this. nobody knows if we will ever see it for PC/PS3.

Edit: Oh, and look at the BOX ART for the Xbox version of the stand alone EFLC - it DOES NOT say "only on xbox" like lost and damned did... and like both DLC versions of the stories do... but yet, EFLC does not. More evidence of a stand alone being non-exclusive since the DLC is exclusive, and the disc is a separate game altogether.

 

I will be VERY surprised if I end up wrong about this, and I've said it before, I'll say it again (if you already know, you might just skim through) -

 

The ONLY thing exclusive about these episodes is DOWNLOADABILITY.

 

They are NOT episodes nor downloadable when they are a STAND ALONE GAME as EFLC - So, rest assured, we will be playing this on PC, just as the PS3 users will be playing on PS3.

 

The exclusivity was for DLC

 

TLaD and BoGT are both DLC - they are exclusive to Live.

EFLC is NOT DLC it WILL come to other platforms - don't buy on live, make it happen sooner/make sure it happens (if too many people FALL FOR THE LIE that it is exclusive, they will have no need to release it on other platforms. If everyone they want to sell to falls for it, then they have no reason to release it)

 

Now, Toys R Us in particular DOES NOT create box arts. That came from one place and one place only to end up on tne T.R.U. site, and it confirms, without a shadow of doubt, that this is coming to other platforms. This isn't a rumour on some blog, it is the biggest toys retailer in the world - they put up the wrong pic.

 

This, the Russo comments in GTTV, the fact that a stand alone game is not DLC anymore and is instead it's own game, etc. yay, no more bickering or "we get it and you dont, pc and ps3" (I hope no more bickering anyway).

 

Again, EFLC is not DLC - it is on a new executable and thus is treated as such. That it is NOT downloadable nor an expansion to IV makes it totally separate which means it is not exclusive smile.gif

 

Now, if you see anything for PSN where it's the episodes separate and NOT eflc stand alone, then it is a totaly lie. Because MS owns the download ability.

Actually, the EFLC boxart does have "Only on Xbox 360" on it, not that that necessarily means anything.

And Rockstar have stated that EFLC is exclusive to 360, just as they have for TLAD and TBoGT separately. The disc isn't treated any differently. And those box arts on the Toys R Us website were not created by Rockstar. The 360 one was missing the "Only on Xbox 360" logo, which clearly appears on the box on Rockstar's official site, and PS3 games don't even use that logo down the left side anymore. They have new boxarts now with the PS3 logo on the top, similar to 360 and Wii games.

You seriously are going to take that as proof of a PS3 release? Anyone with basic Photoshop skills (or MS Paint skills, for that matter) can take the EFLC boxart and slap a PS3 logo down the side. Once again, it's the old logo that's not used anymore, as well. I could add a Wii logo to the top and say "Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City will be available for Nintendo Wii in 2010." Would you believe that too? Or maybe if I registered a new account on here with the name Houser and posted it... would you believe me then?

It wasn't on the box arts I've seen haha. Seeing THAT and THAT alone has made me less confident in a PC (and PS3) release tounge.gif

 

However, this disc IS treated differently and apparently does not even ship with the music from IV.

 

It is NOT DLC and it is NOT the same game, it is NOT the two episodes - it is episodes from liberty city - same experience, DIFFERENT games, thus, the possibility is still quite high, and rockstar really haven't said much about the exclusivity of this disc pressing, so we can still assume the $50 mil was for exclusive DLC, or exclusive downloadability more precisely, and that a stand alone disc pressing frees them of exclusive binds (its obvious, while Sony charges something like 16 cent per gig, Microsoft approached rockstar and said "f*ck that, We'll pay YOU, don't pay them lol", then sony had to wait lol)

If Microsoft paid for the DLC, don't you think that would cover a disc release as well? They wouldn't let that little detail slip past them and get screwed over, now would they? Also, why wouldn't this so-called PS3 version of EFLC release at the same time as the 360 version if the disc has no connection to the DLC and can be released on other platforms?

 

On another note, I believe it has yet to be confirmed whether or not the original IV music will appear on the EFLC disc.

Because every time Sony paid for GTA exclusivity, it was a timed exclusivity contract? I think that's a hint already on PC and PS3 users getting the DLCs something like six months later. I don't think R* would want to loose money not releasing those episodes on PS3, because even if there are far more Xboxers out there, it isn't possible to run copied games on PS3 and that's a big advantage over Microsoft's system.

 

But this is still speculation... and even though it's logical, some people here didn't learn from the past... you'll always just buy, buy, buy everything what's f*cked under your noses as it is, and will never wait to get it maybe cheaper or a version on a platform, which gives you more options in configuring your game and such. dozingoff.gif

 

You know what? I'll just wait this time... I'm not going to buy the EFLC disc after I bought TLaD! That IS a rip-off. dozingoff.gif

It'll not only come to PC, it'll come to the PS3 also imo.

 

R* are hard for Sony, R* will even add more content for both the PC and PS3 versions of this game and screw us all out because they bend over to Sony time and time again.

 

If the Housers were/are fanboys, they're Sony fanboys.

 

They did it with CTW, they'll do it with EFLC and yet we still don't have Vice City Stories and/or Liberty City Stories except on Sony platforms. It speaks for itself.

Been said time and time again, they 2 last games came out for the PS2 when the 360 was getting released.. That would mean a total recoding of the games, to output it on this gen consoles with HD. Too much work lmao for something that wasnt a full game and didn't sell as well as the predocessors. Waste of time, effort and resources, hell yes.

For these 2 DLC's, it wouldn't be a waste of time wink.gif

 

But as all the other PS3 and PC users, i'm just gonna bide my time. And that time will be in 6 months time wink.gif

Rockstar has been bombared with questions about the DLC coming to PC/PS3, and will continue to be bombarded until the situation with the Microsoft deal is made clear. If there was *no* realistic possibility of it happening, Rockstar would make this fact clear and declining to comment would benefit nobody: 1) Rockstar would continue to be bombarded with questions; 2) PC/PS3 fans would continue to remain uncertain; 3) It doesn't benefit Microsoft either (if they made it crystal clear right now that there is no chance of this content coming to other platforms, some PC/PS3 fans would cave and go out and buy an Xbox).

 

It's common sense if you ask me. They wouldn't have said "no comment" if there wasn't a realistic chance of it happening. It benefits absolutely nobody.

No comment means no comment ad infinitum. As in, we are not permitted under contract to speak about the MS deal either way. People will continue to speculate and read into everything no matter what is announced or not.

 

Plus its a PR knife edge for R*, they dont want to be seen to be sh*tting on the PS3 onwers by saying theres no chance of the DLC.

Tbh theres just too many hints now saying that it will be. We'll see, we'll see i guess

 

(i'm still thinking timed, 6 month or a year. So if by next Hallo's eve we don't have it, we won't get it.)

I just got done finishing Bully and was hoping for a Bully 2 so I decided to look up for any rumors or new information. When someone asked for a comment from Rockstar they said, ''Rockstar does not comment on rumors or speculation.''.

They don't comment on these things, for all rumors.

You PC/PS3 fanboys all refer to previous exclusivity cases. But in this case, Rockstar has said in public that 50 million bucks was paid to let the episodes go exclusive to Microsoft's console.

And that is different from all other exclusive deals in the history of GTA. monocle.gif

Besides, 50 million bucks for only timed exclusivity? Then Microsoft has to be real dumb... lol.gif

Which could be why Sony turned it down in the first place. No-one knows what was on the contract that was signed.

 

So MS paid 50 mill for DLC.. PC users not MS? lol It can be rest assured, they need to come out for the PC. PS3, i just hope it gets it but not too bothered either way. Its like LCS and VCS, not a full game plus i'v read they split online up (GTA has needed an online, which has kept me playing since release.)

50 millions is nothing for R*, considering they'll get the double or triple by releasing it to PS3 and PC. It's a timed exclusivity for sure. Get in R* position, and choose one:

 

- Get 50 mil (1 year exclusive) + the rest of the money from PS3/PC

- Get only money from selling it on all platforms.

 

Of course you'll get the 50 mil and then sell it to other platforms, its a win-win situation.

 

Plus, if it was exclusive forever, R* would have clearly answered "Yes, exclusive forever" and not just say "no comment", its obvious they're hiding it. The guy on IGN's video slipped something about it coming to PS3 too.
