Grand Theft Auto IV Content Goes Exclusive
Take Two Interactive announced recently that the first two packages of episodic content for their upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV would be exclusive to Microsoft’s Xbox 360 console. Microsoft will pay a total of $50 million for this privilege.
Take Two plans to release GTA IV this fall for both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. With this move Microsoft hopes to attract the legions of GTA fans when they make their next-generation console decision. The last game in the series, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas sold 14 million copies on the Playstation 2 console.
Who knows, maybe this is the kind of thing Microsoft needs to stop the momentum of the Wii.
