Gay Tony DLC Comes to Xbox 360

props to ezzokid

Rockstar is certainly no stranger to controversy with games like Manhunt under their umbrella, but it seems like they may have taken the cake on this one.

In contrast to Grand Theft Auto IV‘s seedy biker gang expansion The Lost and Damned, The Ballad of Gay Tony is said to focus on the glitzy “high-end night life” of Liberty City. The second Xbox 360 exclusive episode will put players in the role of Luis Lopez, confirming previous rumors, as his part-time hoodlum duties are supplemented by full-time work for nightclub impresario Tony “Gay Tony” Prince.

Even better is the fact that this will come out as a standalone game as well so gamers can finally have a game that says “GAY” in bright glitter in their library.  Seriously, this is a unique idea.  Very interested to hear what everyone thinks, but please be respectful and try not to show your ignorance.  Jokes are jokes but use some restraint.

    Enters GameStop retail store.

    Waits in line at counter.

    Guy behind me is discussing how hardcore the 360 is.

    The clerk is talking to person in front of me how hadcore the 360 is and its the best console on the market.

    I get to counter “Can I get Grand Theft Auto Ballard of Gay Tony?”…..

    AWKWARRRRRRRRRRD.

    Stupid PS3 fanboys! It will be Luis Lopez character that you playing as not Gay Tony. You only work for the Gay Tony and Luis is dominican, if you guys remember the dude who wears a baseball jacket at the bank heist scene, jew church scene, and the time you finally exchange Tony’s daughter for the diamonds. I called it, i know this guy Luis will play as a character in 2nd DLC…and yes this is going to be sweet as Mikedemo will agree.

    I think it will be interesting, stop focusing on the word gay.

    Sure the title is weird, but I think that was done for a reason. To gain attention, now personally the game is dead to me, but It is interesting.

    The fact that I see everyone focusing on the word gay, tells me equality will never come to this country.

    Anyway I’m looking forward to what this is.

    but anyways i don’t really see a problem with the game but the problem is they used the word “GAY” and it might get a lot of publicity to that term. but its GTA so you know the DLC is gonna be good. just get past the name people and you’ll be alright.

    “The Ballad of Gay Tony” I rather have something else like a side story of Jacob or Dwayne claiming back the streets Playboy X took from him. This DLC might turn out alright but I think there was better paths that Rockstar could have taken. I don’t have a problem with the word “gay” so if it comes the PS3 I would still buy it because it’s GTA.

    Classic GTA humor.

    I can’t believe how many people said they don’t want it just because it has the word ‘gay’ in it. None of those people 360 owners I guess. That’s like not buying GTA 4 because of the character Bernie.

    Now that I think about it, maybe Bernie and Gay Tony could be friends.

    What? Gay Tony is gay?

    since when is GAY or Man and another Man righteous? its the depraved world we live in that keeps getting worse. bad is turning to good in the eyes of many. if you support gayness, u are going against the Bible’s strict and clear law of against homosexuality.

    Im not sure DLC about a Gay character is really gonna sell all that much. At least, its not with me.

    Which doesn’t mean I’m against Homosexuality or hate them or anything…

    I just don’t see my buying something that is called Gay by its own developers..

    I’d imagine people would see this on the Marketplace and be like “what? what the hell?” and just move on.

    This doesn’t mean I’m homophobic, I just don’t think that people are going to be gagging for this like they were with the original.

    One question for you: Can human beings control their desires and lusts? Yes, but sadly the worldly answer is No.

    This post has become an interesting thread.

    I wish I had more space to fully address the issue of homosexuality, but there isn’t enough time nor thread space to do it justice.

    Therefore, I will just say this, drug addiction, alcohol addiction, gambling, pornography, greed, jealousy, murder, beastiality, lesbian and homosexuality are all sin.

    Sin is nothing more than a desire to please yourself. How can a person overcome the above sins? Simple. When your desire to please God becomes greater than your desire to please yourself you will overcome sin.

    I like playing good video games and reading about them; that’s why I come to this form. But, nothing comes before God, nothing.

    If this post has been useful to you, great! But, if you have found absolutely nothing of value in this post, THAT’S OKAY, TOO! Just take what you’ve just read and toss it into the trash can in your mind. I promise, I won’t be offended, honest.

    Thanks for reading, and continue to have a great day!

    Desires and lust??? Depends on the person. I just went McDonalds for lunch, there was a guy that was maybe 400lb, that guy clearly can’t control his desires or lusts. Also alcoholics will say there powerless against there “disease.”

    But people can’t choose who there attracted to.

    All the prescripitions against homosexuality, thats written in the bible, is in the Old Testoment. If homosexuality is soooooo wrong in god’s eyes, how come Jesus never mentioned it????

    You can’t intrepret ideals that were made in the Bronze Age of man, and then try and translate them into today’s society.

    go read 1Corinthians 6:9, it sure is in the New testament. and for all those who are quick to say ‘im not guy but i am not against Homosexuality or hate them or anything…’ what point are you making? its like saying i am not a terrorist, but i don’t mind them. they are committing a clear wrong and evidently a serious sin before God Almighty. all who love and respect God should abhor that sinful act and by all means refrain from condoning it.

    Jesus did talk about those sinful acts in the New Testament. Matthew 5:28- “But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to desire her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” Now you might look at that verse and say he said a woman not a man but sin is sin, if I murder a man then I’ll be just as wrong for murdering a woman.

    Superballa123, I’m saying the word “attraction” like the biology thats built into man. Like are drive to eat meat, its something we can’t control. People can’t control there attractions.

    He has made them in his image and likeness (Genesis 1:26-27).

    What I believe your saying is that every man is born with sin. Sin is our desires, and desires in some people, would be homosexuality. So by NOT resisting this “sin” its wrong??? If so, then its a good point.

    I just don’t subscribe to that dogma.
