$19.99 Grand Theft Auto IV Add-On

Rockstar Games has released an additional episode to this year’s top-selling videogame, the Mature-rated Grand Theft Auto IV. Titled “The Lost and Damned” and starring Johnny Klebitz, a Liberty City biker gang member (pictured), the Xbox 360 console add-on is available as a $19.99 download exclusively through Microsoft’s Xbox Live Internet service (watch the game trailer). The New York Times, which reviews the title, posits the episode “will probably become available for the PlayStation 3 and PCs once Rockstar’s exclusive deal with Microsoft expires, but it is unclear when that will happen.”
