, Rockstar owning Take Two stated that downloadable episodic content is an area that it intends to invest heavily in, with regular updates for its biggest titles already penned in for 2009.
We also have significant visibility into fiscal 2009, which includes additional episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV, Mafia II, Borderlands, BioShock 2, our complete sports lineup, additional Nick Jr. titles under our agreement with Nickelodeon, and several new brands,” Take Two CEO Ben Feder stated.
Whilst we know that the upcoming DLC for Grand Theft Auto IV on Xbox 360 will be exclusive to Microsoft’s machine for 2008, the fact that Feder neglects to mention any specific platforms for 2009 suggests that perhaps PS3 owners will be treated to similar delights later down the line.
And on the theme of GTAIV, Take Two also confirmed that both the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game, which is due out on April 29th, will be identical – aside from the fact that the Sony version will have a slightly warmer colour pallet”.
