Episodic content for GTA:IV is exclusive to the 360, how long for though, we don't know. What has emerged though, is the price Microsoft has had to pay for such a privilege. The measly sum of $50,000,000 is what has been stated by Kotaku, who source Take-Two's second quarter fiscal 2007 results conference call.
When asked for details on the move by analyst Evan Wilson, of Pacific Crest Securities, Take Two's CFO Lainie Goldstein disclosed both the sums involved and prospective release dates, "The first 25 is for the first episodic content package that's supposed to go out and that is in March of '08. That's why it moved into current because it's in the next 12 months. The second 25 will be for the second episodic, the episode, and that will be later in fiscal '08".
So a total of $25,000,000 for each of the two episodic content downloads. How much do you think they are going to cost for consumers?
