Sony has just announced that Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will release for PS3 on March 30, 2010. PS3 fans will now have the opportunity for the first time to experience the last two exciting chapters of the Grand Theft Auto IV saga together on one standalone Blu-ray™ disc, or as individual episodes available for download on PlayStation®Network. It’s about time this gets to PS3, but I keep feeling like Sony continues to accept being second fiddle to Xbox when it comes to getting things out first and they won’t win this generation of console wars that way, but hey maybe they don’t intend to. Whatever the case, for PS3 players its been a while since we we were roaming the streets of liberty city, are these two new chapters enough to make you go back even if by now you probably know how they end from all your Xbox buddies?
In the first episode, The Lost and Damned, players will become immersed in the dark underworld of Liberty City and its motorcycle gangs led by Johnny Klebitz and The Lost motorcycle club. Players will follow the shady exploits of Luis Lopez in the second episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony, as he becomes involved in Liberty City’s fast-paced, corrupt nightclub scene. Both episodes feature new vehicles, weapons, and music.
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City for PS3 will become available in stores on March 30, 2010 in North America at a recommended retail price (RRP) of $39.99. The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony also will be available on the same day in North America to purchase separately on PlayStation®Store via PlayStation Network for $19.99.
