Rockstar will also be releasing this, along with the Lost and The Damned DLC, as a standalone compilation disc. This will be titled “Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City“.

The Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony is said to take more of a look into the glitzy high end life of Liberty City, in contrast to the biker gang life of Lost and The Damned.

Grand Theft Auto 4 has been out for over a year and Microsoft is celebrating this by releasing a Xbox 360 Elite bundle that comes with the Xbox 360.  Though, there is no word on the GTAIV: Lost and The Damned DLC being packed in with the bundle pack.

This birthday bundle comes with two exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV stickers, one of the GTAIV logo and the other being the Liberty City Swingers logo. Some are complaining that this is lackluster compared to the other Xbox 360 bundles. The pricing and release date of this bundle pack has not yet been addressed by Microsoft. Also the regions that this “Anniversary Bundle Pack” will be released also isn’t known, though it is speculated that it will be released for those down North.

Hmm, Two Stickers and a Game. This bundle pack is sounding quite useless, to be honest. I don’t see the selling point for it. They could have easily included vouchers for the Lost and The Damned DLC, and just maybe, it’d make the bundle pack that much more worth getting. The Fable 2 + Halo 3 bundle pack is looking way more appealing then this.
