On Thurs., GTA IV for the Xbox 360 held a No. 3 rank, while the PS3 version held a No. 4 rank in the Video Games division. Grand Theft Auto IV is the next chapter in the best-selling Grand Theft Auto franchise. The Xbox 360 version will include two downloadable episodes available exclusively on Xbox Live. The title focuses on Niko Bellic, an Eastern European immigrant who travels to Liberty City. Take-Two Interactive in Aug. delayed Grand Theft Auto IV to 2008 from an original Oct. 2007 release. The publisher cited additional development time required to complete the title. The title will be released on Apr. 29 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. In Mar., Take-Two rejected a $2B buyout offer from EA, saying that the bid undervalued the software maker. Rockstar Games and Amazon in Mar. said that the two will partner to allow buyers of the Grand Theft Auto IV to purchase music tracks heard in the game from Amazon. Tracks to be featured in the game include Electrick Funk's 12-inch treasure "On A Journey", Elton John's "Street Kids", and exclusive trackcs like "War is Necessary" from rapper Nas.
