Microsoft promises 'hours' of additional GTA IV gaming

Downloadable content for PlayStation 3 also possible

In an effort to sway buyers to play GTA IV on Xbox 360, Microsoft reminded consumers on Tuesday of the exclusive episodic downloads coming to Xbox 360 this fall.

"Starting this autumn, Xbox 360 owners will also have access to exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV episodes that will provide hours of additional game play," the company said in a statement.

Last year, Microsoft announced an exclusive deal with Take-Two that would guarantee two downloadable GTA IV episodes for Xbox 360. Details on gameplay, pricing, and specific dates have still not been revealed.

Microsoft paid a reported $US50 million advance to Take-Two to secure the two exclusive downloadable episodes.

Though unconfirmed, some industry insiders predict that Rockstar Games will release some type of downloadable content for PlayStation 3, either unique to the console or a delayed release of part of the Xbox 360 content.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
