Bad news for Xbox 360 and PlayStation gamers who are fans of the Grand Theft Auto series: Rumor has it downloadable content might not be kept up to date on the (somewhat) older Xbox 360 and PlayStation models. For those unfamiliar with the lingo, this means GTA players with an older Xbox or PlayStation model might miss out on being able to download new features for their games. It’s unfortunate, but bound to happen as older generation Xbox and Playstations have their thunder stolen by Xbox One and the PlayStation 4.
As Idigitaltimes.com discovered, one such DLC update is coming in September, and will unfortunately leave out GTA-ers who are playing on an Xbox 360 or a PlayStation 3.
“Since GTA 5 arrived to next-gen consoles PS4, Xbox One, as well as on the PC, Rockstar has done a great job offering new updates every month across all consoles and PC. However, that may be coming to an end. Rockstar recently announced that its next GTA 5 Rockstar Editor DLC is slated to arrive in September and will bring the Rockstar Editor, previously a PC exclusive, to PS4 and Xbox One.
“However, original GTA 5 gamers on the PS3 and Xbox 360 platform will be left out of the Rockstar Editor fun.”
This doesn’t mean Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will be entirely forgotten, of course. Plenty of older games such as the Call of Duty series and the Rockband games are alive and well on Xbox 360, and there is downloadable content available for them via Xbox Live, often times for free.
If you prefer PS3 to Xbox 360, not to worry; you can pre-order Yakuza 5 for PlayStation and get a variety of downloadable goodies with it, including playable storylines from the Japanese DLC. Not surprisingly, though, sales of both Xbox 360 and PS3 have been sagging while their successors (PS4 and Xbox One, respectively) are enjoying skyrocketing sales numbers, as Inquisitr reported.
Don’t get too down just yet, though; According to GameRant.com, Karl Slatoff, President of GTA’s distribution company Take-Two Interactive, announced that there’s no word on when the DLC will be available for Grand Theft Auto V. In other words, it may be a while no matter whether you’re using a newer or older Xbox or Playstation model.
Some theories about future DLC updates for Grand Theft Auto include content packs that will allow players to buy and sell property, as well as participating in an online stock market. A content creation tool for Grand Theft Auto V was also released in beta form in December, 2013, via a downloadable content pack. This tool allows users to create and tweaks jobs and missions for use in Grand Theft Auto Online.
