Take Two have released their Second Quarter Fiscal 2008 Financial Results, and inside it is the following quote, stating that the first episode of the downloadable content will be released sometime between November and January, as opposed to the August date originally mentioned.

QUOTE
The Company is providing guidance for the third fiscal quarter ending July 31, 2008 and fourth fiscal quarter ending October 31, 2008 and is raising its guidance for the fiscal year ending October 31, 2008 as detailed below. Fiscal 2008 guidance reflects the release of the first installment of episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 instead of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 in order to provide a better balance in Take-Two's release schedule.

Bad news for those desperate for some new content to play around with, but perhaps we should be used to GTA's delays by now. What's more, there's no mention of any PS3 downloadable content, so we still have no confirmation if such thing is actually going to exist.

If you'd like to get involved with DLC discussions, including a wishlist for what people would like to see included, head over to our Downloadable Content / Next GTA Discussion forum!

Oh well, until R* tell us what the DLC is or whether it's available for the PS3 it doesn't bother me. Not even sure i'd download it anyway, unless it's free, which I doubt very much.

Sucks for those craving the episodes, but interest will stay relatively low until Rockstar drip feeds us some info.

Too bad. This probably means a even longer wait for any mention of PS3 DLC.

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

So will I and I'm guessing alot of other people will be aswell so they have fucked up by delaying it as I think it will prob make the difference in how much money they would have made as people won't be as bothered to buy the DLC because they won't be bored then like we all now, although I will still be getting it lol, It does take the piss though, they shouldn't announce a date if they can't stick to it, come on R* you should have learned by now especially after all the shit with delaying IV. nono.gif

I imagine 95% of people are saying exactly the same as you are. And you'll all do the same "Woaaah! It actually sold millions!" after R* announce how many downloads the DLC got.

I guess everyone forgot that the August date was the one set before the game was delayed until April. In other words, if the game came out on time, they would have had 10 months to make the DLC perfect. Because it was delayed, they would have only had 4 months, and you can't do 10 months work in 4 and get the same quality at the end of it. The game was worth the six month delay, so how about giving Rockstar a chance with this DLC as well?

Yeah i'll give them time. But with the release of Gears 2 and Fable 2, I just won't get much time to play it. I'll remain optimistic though

I totally agree. With the August release date, I was worried the DLC might be rushed. I would much rather have quality DLC over a quick release.

Everyone is talking about what other games they are going to be playing then, but I guarantee when the first trailer for the new DLC content comes out, there will not be another game on your mind. I guarantee the DLC will be epic and will ensure dust gathers on all the video games you got for X-mas.

The delayed release also will increase the demand for the DLC, which will sure be backed up by an extensive marketing campaign and forums fueled with speculations from fanboys based on the trailers/websites. The DLC will not be as big a release as the game was, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of the largest XBL purchases ever once it drops.

I'm fucking ready. But in the meantime, I'll probably play through the story again, work on leveling up my multiplayer ranking, finding FUCKING PIGEONS, and taking care of those elusive achievements. Then I'll think about taking LEGO Indiana Jones out of the packaging and put it in. Besides, Madden 08 and Gears of War 2 will keep me busy until the DLC is finally released.

Xfire Identity: i said your mother!!



oh well... im a PS3'er so, this news doesn't effect me whatsoever... if they end up giving us some kind of info on the DLC then, i guess i'll get excited but, i am gonna treat the delay the same as i did when IV was delayed - forget about it until R* blesses us all with some news concerning what it is...

i mean, when IV was delayed, i decided to not read anything GTA related until a month or so before its release... so, i'll be doing the same if it's announced that PS3 gets something too... no need to start building the hype if there's nothing to get hyped up about...

until then, i'll be fine with just playing IV as it is... i'm still having a lot of fun playing the game so, new content will be a bonus whenever i get it...

QUOTE (Massacre @ Mar 15 2011, 01:24 AM) *
Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

See, most of the people here before GTA IV's release were all like "I'm going to be playing this game until GTA 5 man". And not two months later, everyone's bored of it. This is a bad sign for Rockstar and Take-Two. Maybe they should stop delaying everything...

Even I'm a bit bored of GTA IV. I find myself ditching it and giving love to Guitar Hero 3, which continues to rock! I can't wait for Rock Band to hit Australia (yes I know I can import it from the UK, but I'm saving for other stuff right now).

Im certianly not getting bored of GTA. I just wish more of the forms reg would paly online. If we did regularly it would never get old. I know this game isnt going to last me as long as SA did but that only because Ill be playing MGS4 soon but its not like im putting it away. Ill get the DLC if and when it comes.

and TBH, Guitar Hero is a sorry excuse of a game.

GTA IV as is stands, is an awsome game online and offline. But it could be even better, and hopefully R* do something about it via dlc. As long as it doesnt take forever to be released, gtaIV will be even more successful.
