Microsoft backing GTA 4 with Halo 3 scale ad campaign

The platform holder is spending big money to ensure gamers know the Xbox 360 version of GTA 4 is the one to buy.

Xbox Head of Gaming and Entertainment Stephen McGill has confirmed that the platform holder will be supporting the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV with a campaign on the same scale as Halo 3.

"Rockstar will naturally be doing their own campaign to launch what obviously will be a massive title for them, but Microsoft sees GTA IV as a fantastic title to showcase how great Xbox 360 is... what with it's amazing graphics & gaming experience, coupled with playing with your friends on Xbox LIVE, achievements and of course the exclusive extra episodic content for GTA IV that will be downloadable this Autumn and will only be available on Xbox 360.

"As such you can expect a large awareness campaign from us, showcasing how great GTA IV on Xbox 360 is, and what great value the Xbox 360 console is too. Our campaign is the same sort of scale as our Halo 3 campaign last year so you can expect to see and hear a lot about GTA IV on Xbox 360 over the coming weeks."

The campaign began this week with lifestyle press advertising - commercials will begin to run on TV from this weekend, continuing beyond the launch of the highly anticipated title.

GTA 4 is scheduled for release on April 29 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

oops, i meant to put that it's rumored soddy, soddy.


This could be very funny. “Skip” - Andrew Pfister, the writer of 1up’s GTA IV preview - has posted on Neogaf saying that the PS3 version of GTA IV features a five-minute mandatory install. Unsurprisingly, teh internets have gone grade A crackers for it.

We’re also reliably informed this morning that the 360 version features an “optional install” as well. We’ll drop Rockstar a note asking for confirmation.

FOR ANYONE INTERESTED

As it stands now, EA is holding firm to its $26-a-share offer, which Take-Two management has rejected as too low and ill-timed. Take-Two, based in New York, has offered to negotiate with suitors, including EA, on April 30, the day after the latest version of Grand Theft Auto ships. The ambitious game -- expected to be a spectacular hit -- has been one factor complicating predictions about the outcome of EA's bid. Take-Two executives have said the company's share price prior to EA's public disclosure of its bid in February didn't reflect Wall Street expectations for big sales of the game.

Future Publishing have just released their CVG GTA IV special. The whole magazine is dedicated to the biggest videogame franchise of the 21st Century. What stands out is their blatant lust for the Xbox 360 version over the PlayStation 3 version. Why? Because of the Downloadable Content of course. CVG compares the Xbox 360 exclusive DLC to the Vice City & San Andreas games in space and scope, and claims the DLC will feature a brand new city.

I've included the whole quote here so the comments can be viewed in their full context.

"Of course, to call games as vastly ambitious as Vice City or San Andreas mere 'expansion packs' seems childish, but nevertheless, the downloadable content (DLC) coming for the Xbox 360 version of IV has repositioned those games in just this way. DLC so far has meant the odd new car, jumper of bit of horse armour, but GTA IV is set to completely redefine the idea with expansions that are to GTA IV what Vice City or San Andreas were GTA III. Yes, Rockstar is clearly hinting at new downloadable cities; and the chances of them being London, Vice City or SA again are slim to none. So that's new as in brand new. GTA IV's Liberty City is the beginning. Think about that and be excited."

What should be noted is that this special edition magazine has been sponsored by Microsoft. There are advertisements for the Xbox 360 edition of GTA IV (with DLC) as well as other 360 games including Ninja Gaiden II and Lost Odyssey. In this context the comments by CVG sound suspiciously like advertorial - e.g. paid for editorial. If this is the case than CVG really should follow proper journalistic standards and clearly label the piece as such.

Nevertheless a full new GTA city coming to Xbox 360 in Autumn? Those Houser brothers better get their skates on.

10 hours at least is good to hear... but hearing that it could be a new city has me thinking about Shivering Isles... that was massive in itself.... if it's like that then :applause: if not, then stop the BS microsoft

50 million bones my dude, 50 million bones, MS needs to recoup all that as fast as possible now and even more later on with DLC.

I don't see a TIMES SQUARE partyh event and sh*t for a GTA game though, this game is too controversial to be put in that type of light, so don't expect anything like that.
