Sorta. While browsing around the GameStop website before posting the GTA: Chinatown Wars release date and pre-order news, I caught this listing for a boxed release of Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned, the Xbox 360-exclusive DLC expansion storyline to GTA IV. Don’t get too excited though, the boxed version of the expansion won’t come on a disc eliminating the need to own the base game. For $20 it’ll simply come with a download code to get the add-on through the Xbox Live Marketplace and a double-sided poster packed up inside a standard Xbox 360 DVD game case. Not quite sure I understand the point of putting a download code inside a box and putting it on store shelves, but I suppose GTA fans and collectors may be excited to pick this up over buying it online.
