This article has been assembled with current information of the next DLC, update as announcements are made. Liberi Fatali37 01:36, 1 April 2009 (UTC)
I feel so proud of my self posting that :D
In the article it says that The Ballad of Gay Tony is the fourth instalment of the GTA 4 era. Is this a mistake and if not, then what are the other three cause I can only think of the main game and the lost and damned. --LuisFernandoLopez 19:12, 28 May 2009 (UTC)
- Forget that, my copy of Chinatown Wars arrived today, and I realised that it was the other installement.--LuisFernandoLopez 10:41, 30 May 2009 (UTC)
This page needs an infobox to simplify information. Liberi Fatali37 04:56, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
The disk for Ps3?
Do you think the disk with the two on it will be available for the Ps3, since the two would not be downloadable content, but in fact two completely separate games. It was probably always R* intention to do this, those really smart people, but the contract said that they could not release this information. --LuisFernandoLopez 19:39, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
- Microsoft paid for the episodes to be exclusively on the XBOX, as stated before. They didn't pay for DLC rights, they paid for Episode rights. The episodes won't be on PS3. Sorry. Liberi Fatali37 20:08, 1 June 2009 (UTC)
- GTA SA was a PS2 elxusive went if first came out.--Black Artist 15:57, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
Overal, BoGT was immense. Astonishing story, heavily detailed characters and expanded gameplay. Although this is almost perfect, it wud have been even better if it fitted in some missions for Gracie Ancelotti, who cud give Luis jobs that her father wanted done.
Also, the multiplayer basejumping challenge was either very well hidden, or disappointingly absent. Because I can't find it on the multiplayer games list. --AndyP96 20:46, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
Have anyone else noticed that there isn't an "IV" in the game logo, just something I saw recently. DAWeeE1 15:46, 7 June 2009 (UTC) Yeah I see that too, should we change the main page of the article to just call it Grand Theft Auto The Ballad of Gay Tony, cause that's what is on the website.--LuisFernandoLopez 15:49, 7 June 2009 (UTC)
- The IV isn't there because that's a beta logo. The same thing was with the TLaD beta logo, but they changed it to include the IV. --TheHatTrik 18:12, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
The reason thats their is because Ballad of Gay Tony is going to be something way bigger than TLAD .. they took it out for a reason guys
Yes! October 29! a week after my birthday, I'll wait that game!--Blaff 60 23:21, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
Heh. it comes out the day after my 16th B-Day.--The Vercetti 18:09, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe it's time to start listing new content, the trailer clearly shows new cars, guns and lots of helicopters. . --addinsell 18:31, 01 September 2009 (GMT)
I've done the vehicles ! As far, there will be a new unknown sports car (a Maserati, might have been produced by Dewbauchee), the civilian version of the Buffalo (finally !), the Bati Custom (and maybe other motorbikes from The Lost and Damned), two new helicopters (a small one with torpedoes, and a bigger one), a huge yacht and... the Caddy !!!--Loadingue 18:14, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
Two new weapons have been shown in the debut trailer. The first is the AA-12 Automatic Shotgun and the second is the P90 Sub-Machine Gun.--Golf Lima Tango 20:36, September 1, 2009 (UTC)
I was watching the trailer when I saw a second new sports car... It looks like the Infernus, so it might have been made by Pegassi... The picture is already on the page for the vehicles in TBOGT.
Breaking news : the SWAT Tank will be in TBOGT !!! (by the way, there already was a handling line named "SWAT" in handling.dat... It means that this tank was already planned...) And another new vehicle will be a Rolls-Royce Phantom ! Is it the new Stafford ??--Loadingue 18:18, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
...catch the back of Niko's head in the new trailer? --LuisFernandoLopez 13:16, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
No. Why?--Blaff 60 16:10, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Just wondering if anyone else saw it? And it doesn't look like it's from any of the times we see Luis in the main game. Maybe Luis watches one of Niko's mission from behind the scenes kinda thing... --LuisFernandoLopez 15:32, September 3, 2009 (UTC)
This is directed to LuisFernandoLopez: The scene where you see the back of Niko's head is from the mission where Niko and Packie McReary exchange Gracie Ancelotti for the diamonds, it's in the GTA IV mission "Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend" Grand Theft AJ September 3rd 6:07 PM
Is it me or the Ballad of Gay Tony is a little bit bluish? -- User:Blaff 60 21:08, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
If your talking about the color filters, I agree, its kinda like how TLAD is all yellowish. It also looks more colorful, I like it.--Thescarydude 21:24, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
But for me, it's kinda weird--Blaff 60 21:28, September 4, 2009 (UTC)
Over the top?
I have recently heard that TBOGT will be alot more like San Andreas in terms of insane missions like parachuting out of planes and lifting subways cars with helicopters, i wanted to know if anyone else besides me thinks this is a mistake. (Stebner603 21:54, September 8, 2009 (UTC))
So long as they don't go too far with it. I mean lifting a train car is a bit farfetched but its realistic. A gangbanger stealing a jetpack from Area 51 is just plain stupid.-Gerry Spring 19:50, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Luis in GTA IV
This is just me but i think that maybe Luis could have something to do with the Roman's Sorrow mission in GTA IV. Because in the news it says that the fire chiefs suspect arson because witnesses saw a guy throwing molotovs. Also Roman said he was being chased by people and maybe that could be Luis? Who knows. Anyway tell me if you disagree or agree and why.--Kremer 02:37, September 11, 2009 (UTC)Kremer
could be, maybe has to connect with the diamonds that are "stolen" from Bulgarin.--DarkSaint14 02:26, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
Yeah I figuered they may have something to do with him since he works for Bulgarin, the diamonds i understand that but i dont know because they went from Cook, to Gay Tony for like 10 minutes then the lost, then back to Gay tony, then to bulgarin's men then to the hobo that found them at the dump so i dont know maybe bulgarin just says that because he wants them and he is a liar. Hmmm i dont know--Kremer 02:37, September 11, 2009 (UTC)Kremer
Its the question of how The Cook got to meet with Gay Tony, probibly Bulgarin went to buy the diamonds from The Cook, and Luis got there first--DarkSaint14 04:23, September 11, 2009 (UTC)
I always thought that it was Dimitri and Ray throwing them, never considered it was Luis since I never thought Luis had any affiliation with Dimitri.--Gerry Spring 19:47, October 27, 2009 (UTC)
Yes it was Dimitri and Ray the news report say two guys were throwing molotov and i dont think Luis had anything to do with it why would he?
What's wrong with you people? There is no reason to think, that it could be Luis. It was some Russian mafia goons. Orto Dogge 20:53, May 1, 2010 (UTC)
Game Informer Info
I just got my issue of Game Informer and it has a preview of this. Among the new things are a tank, Mission ranking system, TV shows, websites, C4, enhanced sniper rifle, base jumping and base jumping challenges, and if you do good on base jumping challenges, your own parachute for use. Also, it looks like that Bahama Mama's building in Algonquin is a new club. --FlameWolf 21:26, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
it's released today but i can't edit the news
i've tryed editing the news but when i look for the news section i can't find it. Grandtheftautodude 09:32, October 29, 2009 (UTC)
do you need xbox live for episodes from liberty city?
It starts AFTER bank heist?
I thought there was a mission in TLAD where you steal the diamonds from Gay Tony and Luis and that was going to be a mission, but if it starts after the bank heist how can this be? --LuisFernandoLopez 10:37, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
- The timelines of each game aren't completely in sync, given that you can take different missions at different times. In any case, the bank heist is performed before the diamond exchange, so it's technically accurate, although it does force a lot of events into only a few days. Sawbones 21:21, November 1, 2009 (UTC)
UK price is incorrect
it stated the game retails for £34:99 this needs correcting becuse I baught it for £25 from Argos
- RRP is the recommended retail price. Some places will sell it cheaper, other places won't. Gboyers talk 23:37, December 4, 2009 (UTC)
The BoGT Main Page
Has anyone had problems trying to edit the BoGT main page?. Ive tryed adding the Triathlon link to the page, but whenever I try to type it in., my computer starts to run slowly, so then I have to cancel down the page, and restart it. Has this happened to anyone?. It might just be my PC. User:FXX|FXX]] 00:34, December 23, 2009 (UTC)
Don't just delete the Story section, if it's too long make some edits, don't take it out completely. Grand Theft AJ 19:29, January 31, 2010 (UTC)
Ballad of Gay Tony(on ps3)
Rockstar officially annouced that GTA:Episodes Of Liberty City will be released fo the ps3 and pc on march 30th
Damn thats two and a half months
i cant wait
i used to have GTA 4
but now i dont
Im going to buy TBoGT for the PS3 when it comes out but I wondered. With the new replays and the 100%, in some particular missions it asks you to do some head shots. But if you do all 3/4 objectives which have been asked of you, can you go back and complete that achievement (just one) and you will have done 100%. I know its a bit confusing. If anyone can read what I just typed (LOL) and tell me, it would be greatly appreciated. FXX 21:08, 1 March 2010, (UTC)
- Yes, you can. The games keeps track of what objectives you did complete, and if go back and play it again, will only have to do the ones you haven't done already. And that was a fun D.eagle match the other day--Black Artist 11:25, March 10, 2010 (UTC)
MUSIC in the Trailer
Hey, I remember this music from my youth, is someone able to name the song? :S --Satkir 16:29, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
The song in the first main trailer (You'll Always Be the King of This Town) is "Pjanoo" (Club Mix) by Eric Prydz, the one in "Meet: Tony Prince" is "Menergy" by Patrick Cowley, the one in "Meet: Yusuf Amir" is "Arab Money" by Busta Rhymes feat. Ron Browz, the one in "Meet: Armanda & Henrique" is "Jump Up" by Major Lazer (feat. Leftside & Supahype), the one in "Meet: Luis Lopez" is "Anything Goes" by Major Lazer feat. Turbulance, and the one you're probably talking about, in the second main trailer ("There's Always a Girl") is "The Look" by Roxette. Also please sign your post with four tildes.--Loadingue 14:58, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
Hey, thanks alot! My bad, I didnt remember to add my username :( Here, go have a hamburgermeal *gives 10 euros* :P Can't wait for 30th march O.O --Satkir 16:29, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
You're welcome. I can't wait either !--Loadingue 17:13, March 18, 2010 (UTC)
I own a PS3 and I think that the release dates are stupid. How come BoGT comes out 3 days in Europe after North America?. Its totally unfair. Also that Rockstar North who produce some part of it are in Europe. Anyone think this is unfair?, I know its just 3 days but come on!. FXX 13:48, April 14, 010 (UTC)
Players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family, ninjas, friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price." Where the hell are the ninjas? Until confirmation, ninjas is removed. Jackass2009 00:07, April 25, 2010 (UTC)
Well, there is a new word called, " ninjas " , which means criminals and robbers. It is a new word. The definition was created yesterday. In Wal- Mart, I saw a dictionary with hundreds of new words. I checked out the n section since I got bored and then I found ninja. The definition was read as " described as criminals and bank robbers who steal money, drugs, and other objects. PS The only reason I bought the dictionary was because it was shiny and I saw the cover was UFC but sadly it turned out to be a dictionary. Mr. Strippah
Choices like in the other games
Something I thought would've made the plot incredible is if they actually let you decide whether to shoot Tony in Party's Over (like the choices in both other games). The plot seemed way too short and two endings would have definitely spiced things up. Watching Luis kill his father figure would have been the ultimate tear jerker...
Personally I doubt any peace offering would have satisfied Bulgarin/Ancelotti, and Luis was a target with or without Tony. If Bulgarin sent all those hitmen to the club without knowing what Luis chose, that pretty much proves it. Maybe he'd put up with Rocco (disowned by the Ancelottis) as the new co-owner, assuming he wouldn't stab Luis in the back, or maybe he would have agreed to Yusuf's deal, who knows... either way he'd have been guilty and miserable. I'd say he had every single reason to spare Tony, but still it'd be interesting to see into that alternate universe.Kyleneu 05:50, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
