It’s the story that just won’t go away. You know the one – Grand Theft Auto IV DLC, the same DLC that Microsoft purchased exclusivity rights to with a cheque for $50 million, is coming to the PS3.
We’ve experienced an endless onslaught of rumours, hearsay, false retail listings and more over the years, but is this it? Has The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad Of Gay Tony finally been confirmed for the PS3?
The latest in the perpetual is-it-isn’t-it is a continuation of the recent sighting of the game in disc format (technically not DLC, but we’re not going there right at this minute) over at SimplyGames – one of the smaller of online retailers.
When the recent listing page was mysteriously pulled, many chalked this latest possibility down to yet another erroneous gaffe on behalf of someone with a copy of Photoshop and too much time on their hands. The plot thickens.
Contacting SimplyGames regarding the listing, ConnectedConsoles received the following reply:
The statement “We have had to remove this title for a short period.” sounds to us that SimplyGames simply jumped the gun a little and inadvertently confirmed the existence of something truly monumental.
At this rate, we’re not even going to speculate on what’s happening with the two episodes and whether or not they will finally make an appearance on the PS3. There have been so many false dawns in the past, we’ll only believe it when the disc is physically in our hands. Or, you know, Rockstar tell us it’s real. That will also suffice.
