$20 doesn't seem at all bad to me. I highly doubt if they charged $15 more people would buy it. It's pretty obvious everyone who wants this is sweating it real bad and they are going to pay what it cost even if it was more.

I predict this will sell more than they think it will.

Right now they are basing it's projected sales on how many people play gta 4 on xbox live.

Truth be told allot of people (including some of my friends) who don't have live hooked up are going to go over other people's houses who do. They will bring their 360's over hook it up to their friends network and download it on their console that way.

Another factor to think about is that allot of people would hook up live but they just don't have the proper motivation, which is something this DLC will defenitly give to all hardcore gta fans.

they will sell more than 1 million in the first day, not a total of a million, trust me on this it will happen.

You ps3 fanboys in here do know that a huge chunk of the 50mill from MS was spent by R* fixing the porting issues to get gta iv on ps3 by deadline right? Because that's actually where most that money went, the 50mill was spent before IV even launched. The 50mill was a contractual loan, R* nearly went bankrupt when they missed the first release date because the ps3 port was not ready and they had already spent so much.

No I haven't played it much . Russian, Serb, Croat ,whatever. They all get along so well anyways, right?

/joke

But more seriously, Niko's origins are never confirmed beyond Eastern European. He's thought to be Yugoslavian but hey, he could have come from Russia. Not like he has an official background or anything.

i'm guessing who ever wrote this article probbly didnt even play the game Niko is not "Russian" he even says it a couple of times through the story hes probbly Croat or Serb.

As for DLC, its tempting but the thing wit DLC is that thers always a negative, and from what i've seen from gta iv the story will probbly be good, but its gonna be short, so thas whi I'm holding onto my mine for something better

I play GTA for the story... and I thought Saints Row 2 kicked ass. I will most definetly be buying this, but $20 does seem a little steep.

I think this is totally worth the money. It's not just new missions but new radio stations, weapons, bikes, cars and all sorts of other suff as well. Also $20 for 12-20 hours of gameplay is pretty damn good. Also it will make you feel badass, like being a real biker.

Rockstar is corny. Instead of makin money by releasing it on xbox and ps3 they chose to take Microsofts money and release it only for 360

As if anyone will PLAY it, no one plays GTA for story, they play it to kill and run around in cars, which is why GTA fails.

I think you might be right. I think they'd make more profit by selling more copies at $10 or $15 than they would selling less copies at $20.

But I guess Rockstar employs dudes that would not agree with me.

Despite all the new content, $20 seems to be a bit high...
