GTA IV Exclusive XBox 360 DLC: Did Microsoft Blow $50 Million?

GTA IV Exclusive XBox 360 DLC: Did Microsoft Blow $50 Million? 50°

Well, now we have all seen the trailer for the new DLC and if you have not, the video is below. It is basically going to add a whole new storyline and allow you to take control of a new character and will be titled "The Lost and the Damned World".

Microsoft also announced the surprising cost of $19.99. At this point, without a doubt it seems like a steal but will it be worth the millions for Microsoft?

STREETVETERAN (Co-Host on Podcast)
