1 million sales for GTA IV: The Lost and Damned

1 million sales for GTA IV: The Lost and Damned The Xbox Live-exclusive downloadable content (DLC) title "The Lost and Damned" has reportedly been downloaded over one million times from the online service. At around $20 a pop, it's very decent revenue for a single DLC title.
However, it's worth remembering that Microsoft paid Rockstar $50 million to produce two new chapters for the blockbuster "Grand Theft Auto 4", released in April 2008.

The Lost and Damned broke day one sales records on Xbox Live, and according to analyst Michael Pachter, it will have been downloaded 2 million times from Xbox Live by the end of the year.

I got mine...very disappointed with the "fuzziness" that RS put in the game...I would like for them to patch the game and clear it up....If I wanted to have a fuzzy game I would break out the old XBOX...It just looks like shit playing on my HDTV

Microsoft won't see it as 'only' 20 million for the first of two exclusive chapters. Its more like 20 million NOT going to sony or nintendo and another reason they will say the 360 has the upper hand in the gaming department.

Agree with Muccione, Very fuzzy!

When the second DLC comes out I'll wait for reviews, if that one is fuzzy my money will go elsewhere.
How about an update for the game itself, make it possible to buy houses, fly planes, Jet Pack, increase map size.... So many great things from the previous GTA's make GTA4 look cheap and quickly thrown together.

True. They sacrificed a lot of the fun for supposed realism in 4.
