By now, you’re probably well on the way to being, oh, half way through GTA IV. But, if you’re after the extra downloadable goodies we’ve been promised, you’re going to have to wait until 2009.

In a conference call, the CEO of Take Two, Rockstar’s parent company, said "The reason we moved it is more about portfolio balance than anything else... the delay is not about development issues.”

Really, that means they want to make more cash in the next financial year having already taken the world and his wife to the cleaners in 2008. The extras had been scheduled to arrive this autumn.

The DLC will be exclusive to the Xbox 360, and according to Rockstar, let you head off on new missions and help out folks around Liberty City, courtesy of special packs available through Xbox Live. But with a year–long wait, will we care when it finally arrives? You bet your ass we will!
