GameStop's website is hinting that the upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV's downloadable content pack can be purchased at their stores, but the expansion still has to be downloaded via Xbox Live.

Rather than a disc, the pack comes with a "token card" accompanied with a code so users can download the game via Xbox Live Marketplace, and they're also throwing in a two-sided poster.

The expansion is titled The Lost & Damned, and is one of two downloadables available only for the Xbox 360 version of GTA IV

While Rockstar has confirmed its release for February 17, 2009, the second expansion date is unknown.

It's priced at $19.99.


The PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV, which releases next week on December 2nd, will bump the player count in multiplayer up to 32. The console versions were limited to 16 players online.

There is, however, talk that this increase in players will only be for certain modes including Team Deathmatch and GTA Race.

The PC version is currently available for pre-loading on Valve's Steam service.

Are you getting the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV?



The folks at MTV Multiplayer are discussing an interesting topic that made me think about you, the valued readers of TheFeed. When is the right time to release downloadable content? The blog states:

"This question came to mind yesterday when Bethesda Softworks announced that the first of three downloadable content packs for 'Fallout 3' will be released in January. And the day before that, Lionhead Studios said they’re planning to release a premium DLC pack with new quests, characters and items in mid-December for 'Fable II.' Last week, Rockstar Games said the first DLC for 'Grand Theft Auto IV' will be out on February 17, with additional characters, missions, weapons and vehicles."

When I wrote this story on the Grand Theft Auto IV expansion, several of you mentioned that the DLC's release is too far removed from the original game's release -- too much time has passed and too many games have come out for you to care. I'd like to get more opinions on DLC. When's the right time to release? Is a few months best for you (the Fallout 3 way)? Or would you rather have a longer gap between the retail release (the GTA IV way)? Are you more concerned about getting an additional experience for a gamer sooner? Or would you rather wait longer for better content?


USA Today reports that the next installment of Grand Theft Auto IV will be called "Lost and Damned" and will be released exclusively on Xbox Live on February 17, 2009. The retail version of the game is required to play the new episode. "Lost and Damned" stars Johnny Klebitz, a member of Liberty City biker gang The Lost. USA Today quotes Rockstar vice president Sam Houser as saying:

"Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background. I can't go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show you a different side of Liberty City."

Obviously, this will be a huge hit on Xbox Live. Obviously (again), I expect the Xbots to rail into the Sony Defense Force about how their version of GTAIV is the best. Round 257. Fight!!!


Press Release

A lot of people have been making "Real Life GTA" videos for a while, but this one really impressed us. The makers get points for the effects and fake breaking a window.

Also, Roman should really stop calling.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the series' upcoming Nintendo DS debut, will reportedly take place in the Liberty City of Grand Theft Auto IV.

According to reports, the playable area will be the titular Chinatown, as well as Duke, Bohan, Broker, and Algonquin from GTA IV.

The New Jersey-esque Alderney will not be included.

Selling drugs will also be a large part of the game and a good way to make money. We can't wait for the touch screen minigame where you scratch away the imaginary spiders that haunt you between fixes*.


*This probably isn't in the game.

A little while back we reported that Japanese publication Famitsu had given Grand Theft Auto IV a 39/40 over LittleBigPlanet's 38/40, but we didn't know if this would translate into a big sales difference.

Turns out it did.

Last week, the PlayStation 3 version of GTA IV has moved 133,000 copies and claimed the #1 spot on the charts. LittleBigPlanet clocked in at 52,000 for a #3 finish. That's more than double.

The Xbox 360 version of GTA IV also managed to squeak into the charts at #7 with 34,000 copies sold.

This continues to confuse us, as LittleBigPlanet seems perfectly suited to the Japanese audience. Apparently, they prefer to live the American dream as a violent immigrant.


It looks like the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV might need to stay in the oven for 2 more weeks as retailers like Amazon.com and Gamestop have now listed the game's release date as December 2nd. The original date was November 18th.

There's no word yet from Rockstar Games or Take-Two, but retailers don't usually bump back release dates without a reason. Sure, they may make up release dates for games that have none set to move pre-orders, but this could actually mean a delay is afoot.

Either way, Rockstar's open-world crime game will hit the PC soon.



Here's a piece of good news for PlayStation 3 owners who are playing Grand Theft Auto 4. Rockstar has released a patch for the third-person action game, and 51 trophies have been added.

They are identical to the 360's achievements for the title, except for one: A platinum trophy called "Taking a Liberty," and it's granted for earning all the rest of the trophies.

But here's the full list. Spoilers, obviously.


Japanese gaming publication Famitsu has given a review score of 39/40 to Grand Theft Auto IV (Xbox 360, PS3, PC), which received a 10,10,9,10 from their four reviewers. This is notable for two reasons:

  1. Famitsu generally rates most Western games lower than Western reviewers.
  2. LittleBigPlanet (PS3) got a 38/40 with scores of 10,10,9,9.

Now, before you get all outraged that LittleBigPlanet got a lower score, remember that a 38/40 from Famitsu is a great score for any game.

Does this mean that one game is better than the other? Not at all as they are completely different games. It just comes as a surprise to us as LittleBigPlanet seems much more suited to Japanese audiences than Grand Theft Auto IV, but hey, they like those Yakuza games, right?


ETA on 'GTA' DLC Unknown


Posted October 9, 2008 - By TylerColfax

Xbox Live Corporate Vice President John Schappert recently said he has no idea when Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content will be available although the initial announcement pegged it as "this autumn." This from a roundtable interview Schappert conducted after his keynote address at the Tokyo Game Show.

So, we may have to wait longer than initially stated for more GTA. This should be no surprise considering Rockstar's track record of pushing dates. Granted, it's becoming industry standard and the DLC will no doubt be fantastic. We just want it yesterday.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is coming out for the DS sometime early next year and it's now been announced by way of a print magazine (Edge) coming out soon, that this version of GTA will have an ongoing side mission where the user, no pun intended, is meant to traffic 6 types of illegal drugs during gameplay.

You'll track the economies of heroin, cocaine, weed, ecstasy, acid and downers and bolster your side income with good decisions about your dealings. Dan Houser of Rockstar has said they've wanted to do this drug-dealing mini-game for a while, but it never fit quite as well as it does in Chinatown Wars. He has also said that Nintendo did not want a kid's GTA.

But what if they did want a kid's GTA…?
