October 29: Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony


Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, the next DLC for Grand Theft Auto IV, will be released on October 29. It’ll be available on both Xbox Live and on a retail disc bundled together with The Lost and Damned for $39.99.

In the game, you assume the role of Tony “Gay Tony” Prince, who’s something of a nightlife impresario. High-end night clubs (which is an oxymoron, but who’s counting?), doing’ deals, etc.

And I wonder if this DLC is what East Side Dave McDonald, of the Ron and Fez show, recently went to Rockstar to record voice(s) for? It’d be terrific if Dave is one of the main characters.

Also, trivia: you’ll recall from social studies class that the New York Stock Exchange crashed on October 29, 1929. So it’s an auspicious day to launch stuff!
