Today marks the worldwide release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, available exclusively on the Xbox 360. Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City combines both “The Lost and Damned” and “The
Ballad of Gay Tony” on a single 360 DVD and doesn’t require a copy
of Grand Theft Auto IV in order to be played.
If you don’t believe in the whole “patience is a virtue”
nonsense, and have all ready downloaded “The Lost and Damned”, then
you can purchase “The Ballad of Gay Tony” through Xbox Live in just
a few short hours.
Judging by the early reviews it appears as though Rockstar North has once again delivered an outstanding product, with the review scores in most cases exceeding the score given to "The Lost and Damned".
US – 9.2/10
UK – 9.2/10
Games Daily/Kikizo – 9/10
Xbox - 9.8/10
Rockstar have also posted details of an Xbox
Live multiplayer event, kicking off on Friday the 30th and ending on Sunday November the 1st where you can play against members of Rockstar North. If you do manage to get a game with one of the developers, make sure to hound them about the future of the Manhunt series.
PlayStation 3 owners shouldn't give up hope of seeing the content make its way over to Sony's black box just yet, PS3Center is reporting that Rockstar representatives let slip of it possibly making its way over somewhere down the line.
