Microsoft shells out the big bucks for GTA IV exclusive content

In a recent conference call it was revealed that Microsoft paid $50 million dollars to get exclusive rights to Grand Theft Auto IV episodic content (something that Peter Moore announced at E3 last year).  With two episodes in development that means that Microsoft paid $25M for each episode.  This of course raises the question of how much is Microsoft going to be charging for the content when it's released next year. I'm guessing it's going to be in the $10-$20 range and I just hope it's worth it.  Either way Take-Two is the big winner as that cash really helps their bottom line.
