GTA IV: No New Exclusive 360 Content - EU Release April 25th?
Posted by XanTium | December 19 13:02 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From next-gen.biz:


Contrary to widespread reports, Rockstar has told Next-Gen that there has been no announcement regarding additional exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV content for Microsoft's Xbox 360.

A Rockstar rep told Next-Gen Wednesday that the content in question is merely the second of the two previously announced pieces of episodic content making their way to Xbox 360. While both pieces of episodic content were initially scheduled to hit Xbox 360 in Take-Two's fiscal 2008, the second piece of content will now be available in fiscal 2009, a delay presumably brought about by the later than expected release of the highly anticipated title, which slipped from a planned 2007 debut to a 2008 fiscal second quarter (February 1 - April 30) release.


From mcvuk.com:


MCV understands that Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV will NOT be released in March as expected - and will in fact be held back until the last week in April.
Sources close to the game's publisher have told MCV that the title's UK release will miss the Easter period entirely, and will instead go on sale in the final week of Rockstar parent Take 2's second financial quarter.

A Rockstar spokesperson told MCV that the publisher didn't comment on 'rumour and speculation'.

Kinda sucks this keeps getting pushed back. If it gets pushed back once more we most likely won't see it released until the fall of '08, skipping the generally slow summer for game releases.

Who said Xbox 360 would have exclusive content? Nobody. Everyone knows and there are videos where people say that GTA IV will have exclusive DOWNLOADABLE content on the Xbox 360 version.

I meant exclusive content out-of-the-box, but my edit seems to have failed. I think someone mixed out-of-the-box and additional content here and people are releasing their confusion as news.

Lets hope it will be an awesome game, hopefully released when not a lot of games are released.

Would be nice to see the outcome of the delays, I'm still positive it's something to do with the PS3.

I just hope the game does not retail at 50 or so, no gamer can afford that..on every game.

If you read the entire article you would understand the following:

Originally there were 2 additional pieces of exclusive content announced for the 360

In the Stockholders meeting they discussed an piece of content coming in fiscal year 2009, this led some to believe that there was another block of content coming in 2009 a 3rd episode. This was not correct. Due to the delay of the actual game release the content will be released as follows:

1st episodic content in late 2008 already announced
2nd episodic content in fiscal year 2009 (end of april onwards) already anounced

3rd episode - NO ADDITIONAL EXCLUSIVE CONTENT



JEES, this is news how??!!??!!

Next time you post up news please ensure you quote the preceding stories from your sources.

Appears you were right, it is partially Sony's Fault:
