In all honesty, it's something PlayStation 3 owners should definitely want, and something they're definitely missing.

As part of their "we'll-buy-anything-for-a-certain-price" endeavor, Microsoft managed to secure exclusivity for the Lost and Damned downloadable content for last year's gem, Grand Theft Auto IV . However, as Gamingfront reminds us, that exclusivity deal only lasts six months. …hence, if we do the math, The Lost and Damned should be free of its constraints and become available to PlayStation 3 owners on August 20. Obviously, it's unlikely that the DLC will pop up on exactly that day on the PlayStation Network, but we wouldn't be surprised to see it arrive towards the end of summer some time. As many have said, outside of first-party projects, there really isn't much in the way of true-blue "exclusivity" left in this generation, and if you're talking about a game that was multiplatform since Day 1, well… It almost seems inevitable that The Lost and Damned would show up for the PS3 version of GTAIV at some point, and that's not just optimism talking. For those of you who are still annoyed that Microsoft managed to strike this deal: you're just gonna have to get over it.

We'll let you know when we hear more about this DLC for PS3 owners. You never know; it may be one of the big Sony announcements at E3.

actually i don't remember if ben posted it but i think he did but the ps3 is supposed to get content for fallout 3 and it's in some kinda pack so it's possible to be the old ones also if not then most are expecting exclusive ps3 content

I haven't even completed GTAIV yet, I'm sure there's many people out there that agrees with me. There's still many small achievements to get in GTA IV.

It's possible. There are 1 million sales in GTA DLC, 20 dollars each download. Microsoft paid 50 million for 2 DLC. Looks like they lost 10 million dollars. Maybe microsoft gets royalty if they put it on PSN to compensate for their losts.

I don't have GTA4 any more; I beat it long ago. However, I'd buy a used copy just to play The Lost And The Damned. GTA4 was my GOTY of the year. I hope it happens.

Maybe it'll happen….if Take 2 actually cares for profit. As for Fallout 3…is it still out of the question? – let's give it some time…who knows what would happen.

I don't have this overrated game and if I did I still would not support this DLC crap if it came.I am against companies that do deals like this,because we as gamers regardless of the console suffer.If you have a multiplat game,then all DLC should be available for all consoles.This sickens me,because companies are really starting to turn the focus from what matters most and that's the games themselves.i really don't see how anyone can support companies that do this crap.

If Sony doesn't have this awesome developers making games for them and loyal gamers like us that knows quality work of arts, Sony would've been eliminated this generation with Microsoft's constant attacks of DLC and timed-exclusives.

Darthnemesis, GTAIV isn't overrated,it's top notch quality.

JDHexen,GTAIV might not be the best game of this gen but it's certainly one of the best this gen and in someone's eyes it's the best for him thus far this gen, like me.

It is overrated. It appeals to a certain demographic and those think it is the Goty. I like sand box games but Mercs 2 is more fun. Airstrikes and bringing every building down is far more interesting.

Darth Nem…. overrated? wah..?

have you played saitnts row 2? Godfather 2, mercs 2…? and then have you played GTA4!! its plain and simple, GTA4 is not overrated. that is so obvious if you have ever played any of these games…. becuase that is where the industry is at the moment. GTA4 is beyond their dev for companies like EA, that is why they wanted R*

I do love the three games i mentioned before, but quality wise.. they dont come even close. now prototype, infamous and red faction look damn damn good.. but theyre not out yet, so you cant compare them.

as for not giving in to the DLC thing, i agree… but fact is that if you dont buy said DLC.. youre going to be very bored. your choice not to buy the dlc will not influence many and it wont stop any company from doing this dlc for money thing. so either buy and enjoy it… or dont buy it and play something else.

its like I hate it when the DLC is of things you can unlock if you try.. its pathetic that people like say EA charge you for this.. remember the Battlefield Bad company crap? thats nothing compared to what other companies (as well as EA) do these days.. but at the time everyone was going to boycote EA. ..but did they? no.. in fact everyone buys the dlc and enjoys it. so.. your choice. I will most likely get the DLC myself.

One thing about this generation, is that you can finally see the true colors of the developers. Of course money is the main concern, profit is always the first thing in mind. But it has gotten to the point that some company holds back content and sell it back to you. This GTA DLC is actually extremely high quality. I say the next best thing is Ratchet & Clank:Quest for Booty. These are completely different story/game that were built from ground up, that couldn't be done in a day or two.

This generation's developers are going for every dollar possible in return, losing quality in their games. If you make a good game with added extra content for free, you probably don't get a good sales right away, but be a little patient. After a couple games, your reputation builds, and nothing is more important than that. No one telling you face-to-face, doesn't mean your fans don't know or appreciate the hard work being done. I'm fine with Microsoft paying to develop DLCs, but it'll only corrupt the future gaming industry if we continue.

The mission structure of GTA is annoying compared to the more action packed missions in Mercs 2. Though not perfect, it is imo more fun.

Meh, I'm not much for GTA anyways but if this DLC hits by that date, that would be great for PS3 owners. I hated how M$ nabbed this right in time to attempt to overshadow KZ2, along with using Halo Wars. If I've learned anything about M$, it's that they spend more money on campaigning than anything else. They're terribly good at it too.

A crappy outfit in street fighter is like $2 to $3 dollars already. LBP is a great game, but all those downloadable clothes adds up, i bet if someone is counting, downloading it all cost more than the price of the game. If you ever got into a habit of paying for DLC, just do the math. I think you probably spent enough to get this GTA DLC. It's a matter if you are a fan or not.

Alienange

Buying costumes in LBP? No way sir. Never. I'd rather buy horse armor in Oblivion. But I won't do that either. I'd buy Chinatown Wars for 20 over this DLC and I loved GTA4. The only thing… and I mean the ONLY thing that kills me, is that I want the trophies. Sad but true. I hate having the platinum but only 86% completion just because I didn't buy the DLC.

While I think GTA IV was a great game I won't buy this crap.So basically Microsoft gives us PS3 owners permission to play the dlc that 360 owners been enjoying.Rockstar can shove it!, either give us a brand new dlc which can be release on the 360 simultaneously(I am not selfish like that) or just leave the Lost & The damned where it is.

I don't understand why Rockstar didn't make DLC for Sony as well. Microsoft bought 2 DLC, it doesn't mean they can't make a DLC for Sony at the same time. Just make sure the MS DLC never shows up on the Sony platform. It's still an exclusive to MS.

If Rockstar waits 2 years to release their DLC, people pretty much have gotten over GTA IV already and moved onto another game. Gamers don't wait years for a DLC/spinoff. Some will, but the sales will drop to the point where your effort is wasted.

Actually I think this is going to happen soon. One of the guys that I work at gamestop with said that we got an e-mail that mentions the L&D DLC coming to PS3. I didn't see it myself, but I don't think he is the type to lie.

I really want to try it, but it's not something you can rent. Even if I could rent it I would have to get gta4 for the 360 at the same time.
