GTA IV DLC On Xbox Live This Fall

Illustration for article titled GTA IV DLC On Xbox Live This Fall

Wow, it seems like years since the first rumors of the Xbox getting exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV DLC and months since the game actually appeared (ok, it has been months... but I mean more months)

Finally, Microsoft has announced that the first dollop of episodic GTA action will appear on Xbox Live in the fall.

At the Leipzig Games Convention, a nice chap from Microsoft announced,

"In autumn there will be news from Liberty City; the first episodes of GTA IV will be available for download exclusively on Xbox Live"

(and then there was some guff about "underlining Xbox 360's leadership role in the field of digital entertainment." but, whatever)

So, what do we know? Well, it's nice to get confirmation that it will be several such episodes — whether that means actual episodic gameplay in a Half Life 2 style, who can say?. Mention of Liberty City seems to throw cold water on those 'whole new city' rumors, which is a shame, but still - GTA IV DLC! Yay!

What "hype", exactly? (That's such a meaningless word, 99% of the time). People said it was great. Those were opinions. Obviously, you might disagree.

What did people say that was actually objectively wrong, though? What did they say that led you to be "disappointed" when the game finally came out?

Frankly, most of the time people are "disappointed" by the reality of a game vs. the "hype", they have only themselves to blame.
