Yes it is quite good actually. I'm impressed. I bought GTA4 for the 360 just to play the Lost and Damned ( I also have GTA4 for my PS3 and play it more than I do any other game).
One thing I will say though is that I find the graphics a bit 'strange'. There seems to be some sort of grainy filter over it, it's feint, but it's there.
I also though that the graphics on the NICO GTA4 version on the 360 were 'different' to those on the PS3. But didn't notice the grainy effect on that.

I had to get the DLC as I'm such a big fan of GTA, couldn't let something as trivial as loyalty to my PS3 stop me from playing it.

u can turn that grainy effect off or so i've been told

It should eventually come to ps3. After all, Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, San Andreas where a ps2 exclusive and after a time it came to xbox, it's only right that it would eventually come to the ps3. Weather microsoft paid millions or not.

they wanted it to look like a gritty biker side of GTA, they will also do this(but opposite) to the "ballad of gay tony", to show you the birght night life of GTA, although i'm not a big fan of it. i own a ps3 and i'm reaalllllyyyy hoping that it's a 6 month exclusive so i don't have to buy a 360, but alas, i could also get "splinter cell conviction" which is another stupid MS exclusive, ripped from sony. Oh well...

I agree the loss of splinter cell is a bummer but to be fair the 1st game was originally an xbox exclusive so Conviction going exclusive is more ubisoft going back to xbox than xbox stealing it from us.

 

Also is L&D not coming to PS3 now? At the rockstar area there were PS3s set up where you could play it...

**** M$. No symphaty points for Ballmer & co. 

But hopefully Rockstar is smart enought to bring it on ps3. 

 

Now M$ lost so much cause of a *****ty console they try to push the sell with exclusive contracts.

Anyway this ship is going down.

 

Sony did a good job with the ps3 and the whole feature market around it.

I'm right there with you planet_lee.  I just got an XBox 360 with the intention of getting L&D because I freaking love GTA.  But to tell you the truth I'm having second thoughts.  The XBox is just an inferior product: no Bluetooth, non rechargeable controllers, can't backup my data w/o getting a 3rd party hardware, have to pay extra for wireless networking, fear of RROD, external power supply (fuhreaking lame), you have to pay for online gaming, etc etc...

I actually feel dirty playing the XBox 360...

 

I'll probably get the L&D, finish it, and return the stupid XBox.

Well if your Xbox gets the RROD aleast you get a replacement unlike sony :/

Also you pay to play online because you get better servers and better add ons like voice msgs etc .

The extra little things really aren't worth the money at all though, and the community over on the dark side isn't very nice, they're all angry (probably because they have a **** console :smileytongue: ) The servers are fine (for me) anyway on the PSN.

 

Why did you buy an Xbox just for L&D? you've basically paid probably around £150 (unless it was second hand?) for some DLC...that's what's going to make MS get their money back and then do this whole thing again but next time with something even more dear to us PS3 owners!

It's only a timed exclusive.  However Rockstar can't say that, and Microsoft won't say that.   Guarentee PS3 owners will eventually see it.

If Microsoft payed $50 million for Lost and Damned, I'm sure they didn't make a return or profit on this. It seems like a real flop to be honest.

Possibly, but who's to say that Microsoft are getting 100% of the sales from the 2 DLC ?

It's Rockstar's game after all.

Since no-one outside of R* or M$ really knows the detail of the contract, the $50 mil may only be to obtain exclusivity, perhaps M$ only get $1 for every copy sold.

 

Who really knows ?

 

Oh & I doubt For $50 mil M$ only got a 6 months exclusivity clause.

For $50 mil you'd demand the clause was infinite or at least for 5 years or so.

No it isn't!

 

I really think PS3 owners are going to have to accept that they won't be getting this DLC. I'm sure we'll be getting other DLC in the future, but not Lost and Damned.
