Only 2,676 Claims in GTA Hot Coffee Lawsuit
GameDaily is reporting that the hot coffee lawsuits, if you remember from San Andreas, only bothered 2,676 enough for them to file in the class action lawsuit.
These various claims, which range from $5 to $35 and sometimes include a fresh copy of the game, will cost Take-Two $30,000. Take-Two has agreed to make a $860,000 charitable contribution as well. By contrast to this, Lesser and his colleagues at 10 other law firms are seeing $1.3 million in legal fees, a fact that rankles some.
It looks like Rockstar got a great deal out of the hot coffee fiasco: a ton of free press!

GTA IV DLC Delayed until Nov 08 - Jan 09
There's been a slight delay as to when we can expect to see new GTA IV DLC. Take-Two says:
"Fiscal 2008 guidance reflects the release of the first instalment of episodic content for Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 in the first quarter of fiscal 2009 instead of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 in order to provide a better balance in Take-Two's release schedule..."
Odds are we will be seeing a release in time for Christmas '08.
