GTA IV: Episodes From Liberty City Officially Announced for PS3

SCEA officially announced today that GTA IV: Episodes from Liberty City is coming to the PlayStation 3 March 30 2010. After the rumors broke out this week from a retailer, SCEA finally confirmed the rumor was true. The game will get both the digital download and retail disc similar to the XBOX 360 version.

It seems the exclusivity contract of Microsoft with Rockstar finally expired. Now, if you’re itching to get Lost and the Damned and Ballad of Gay Tony on the PS3, now is the time to wait and pre-order!

In the first episode, The Lost and Damned, players will become immersed in the dark underworld of Liberty City and its motorcycle gangs led by Johnny Klebitz and The Lost motorcycle club. Players will follow the shady exploits of Luis Lopez in the second episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony, as he becomes involved in Liberty City’s fast-paced, corrupt nightclub scene. Both episodes feature new vehicles, weapons, and music.

“Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City has been one of the most requested gameplay experiences by PlayStation fans, and we’re thrilled to finally bring the closing chapters of the GTA IV story from one of the biggest franchises in gaming to PS3,” said Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations, SCEA.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for PS3 will become available in stores on March 30, 2010 in North America at a recommended retail price (RRP) of $39.99. The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony also will be available on the same day in North America to purchase separately on PlayStation®Store via PlayStation Network for $19.99.

    Microsoft paid $50,000,000 to keep these two expansions as timed exclusives. I bet they’re feeling quite stupid now knowing that not only are the Liberty City Episodes coming to PS3, but Agent has been secured and bought out by Sony, shattering the hopes of those fat and smelly 360 fanboys.

    How ugly and stupid Sony Fanboys. MS ‘lended’ Take Two $50,000,000. not ‘paid’. So MS didn’t loss that money. Ugly Sony Fanboys have to play DLC much later.
