Hi,

Anyone know if 'Gay Tony' for 11.99 on the store also has the MP with it? I know the MP is slightly different than the standard MP on GTAIV but it's more or less the same right?

The MP Mods of The Ballad of Gay Tony are more or less the same, Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch in new locations, and a couple of racing modes. The Ballad of Gay Tony on it's own on the store does require the original GTA IV though as it's the DLC version.

If you want the game on it's own you'll have to buy "Episodes from Liberty City" as that's both the DLC on it's own without needing GTA IV.

The Lost and Damned is the one which comes with extra Multiplayer Modes and Games.

The free roam online is better on the Episodes from Liberty City because it includes all the new feature / vehicles that got added wth that DLC.

I wouldn't worry about MP. I haven't been able to get a decent MP game in years on GTA IV.

Well I have the complete collection on disc, and I am slowly reducing my discs to digital downloads.

I could buy the episodes from the store, then trade in the disc on Amazon.

I'm sure the single Gay Tony episode has MP though, it says in the description on the store 'Network Players - 8'.

Any way of knowing for definite?

It DOES have MP Modes, just the basic Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Race, GTA Race and Free Roam.

Same as any other version of TBOGT, but i'm just pointing out, that TBOGT (And TLAD) on their own are the DLC versions which require GTA IV to run. If you want the version WITHOUT needing GTA IV, then you must buy Episodes from Liberty City.

Ah ok great thanks. Do you think GTAIV could be reduced on the PS store as part of the summer sale, or is this a no no due to it being a Rockstar title?

It MIGHT go on sale, I don't really know, Rockstar titles are currently on a sale on iOS and Android platforms after coming out of a sale on the PC (some of which is still on) and there was a sale on the Xbox 360 versions earlier, so I'm not sure if the PSN has already had it's sale for Rockstar titles.

It's had San Andreas and Vice City on sale I think, but not GTAIV as far as I know.
