Sony officially announced tonight that Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City is headed to the PlayStation 3 as a standalone Blu-ray disc. The last chapters of RockStar Games’ Grand Theft Auto IV will be available on March 30.
Both episodes The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony will be featured on a single Blu-ray disc. You can also download the episodes individually via the PlayStation Network. The Lost and Damned features the underworld of Liberty City and its motorcycle gangs led by Johnny Klebitz. The Ballad of Gay Tony follows Luis Lopez, who becomes involved in the city’s nightclub scene.
"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.
The game will be available in North America on March 30 for $39.99 USD. The individual episodes will cost $19.99 on the PSN.
There’s been plenty of speculation about when Episodes from Liberty City would hit the PS3. After tonight’s official announcement, it’s nice to see PS3 owners will get to enjoy these episodes in March.

I knew it would come eventually 360 doesn't have any exclusives that aren't for PC that's good anymore. which is why I sold mine the other dya.

Ha suck on that MS. MS payed Rockstar more money for that timed exclusive period than all previous Rockstar games had generated for MS combined. Does that make sense? For some reason im having trouble explaining it.

I'm so glad they're releasing this on PS3. Something tells me, Rockstar had always planned it that way (they've been pretty good to PS3 owners). Definitely a must buy for me.

They can STICK em!!! rubbish game and they burnt their bridges with Playstation when they decided to move over to XBOX and then give them preferential treatment.

$50 million well spent, MS. -.-
Too bad GTA4 wasn't all that great...

I feel like many on here, too little too late, but as much as this game was less than SA, i will be buying it- from what i've seen looking over the fence, gay tony looks like a heII of a lot of fun,despite the fact the graphics look old already. lost and damned- meh... ok i guess. R* is a business, and some times busness isn't pretty. they did screw over the PS3 fan base but it seems like they want to make up for it. good lord, i haven't seen this much system hate since the nintendo/saga war in the early 90's!

- 9:16am EST - January 30th, 2010

$20 each? isn't that a tad too much?
