What qualifies as DLC?
Leo has added all the vehicles added by DLC but has also added vehicles that were released in the original retail release in the Collectors edition and in the retail version Enhanced edition. In my opinion, any vehicle that is available in the game without connecting to the internet to get any online update is not a DLC vehicle. Tony just recently raised this very possibility.
i.e. If I had bought the Collectors Edition for PS3, and never connected it to the internet, I would still have access to:
If I had bought a new copy of GTA V for PS4 and loaded it up and did not connect it to the internet, I could play and see all the following vehicles claimed to be DLC by application of this category:
I would need to connect my Social Club account to unlock these ones:
but that's not DLC either, that's just unlock qualification criteria. All that content is on the disc when I buy it.
Someone inspecting this category will see all of these vehicles listed and expect to be able to add them to their own game via some form of DLC, but this is not possible.
You know, I was thinking about that too, and I agree. Should we come up with a new page regarding these vehicles, considering that you don't actually Download them? It would make a lot of sense more than having them here... Mortsnarg (talk) 15:26, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
I was thinking the exact same thing, tehy aren't really downloadable content are they, the game has to be downloaded yes, but if the xero blimp, the dukes, the stallion, etc come under the category of DLC, so should every other car in the game! I think only actual DLC vehicles should come under this, or we could make another couple of categories for them, like 'special vehicles' or 'next gen-only vehicles'.

The exclusives like the Marshall etc. for returning users and the Elegy should classify as DLC, and Blista Compact is only down because I can't add a category for the Go Go Monkey section. Leo68 (talk) 15:50, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
- The Atomic Blimp ain't even a DLC vehicle either, it spawns in the skies of Los Santos, we download a spawn point for it, not the vehicle itself. (talk/stalk/blog) 15:51, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
- Yes, the blimp isn't one, but you are making it available to use via a downloadable code, so really, it is in a way. I think that DLC vehicles are vehicles released in an update. Vehicles downloaded from a code or from a website (Elegy RH8, etc) should come under another category, and vehicles that are released in another version of the game (ie, enhanced version) should come under another category aswell.

For me, the Elegy,Carbon,Hotknife and Khamelion are classified as DLC vehicles because they need to be downloaded somewhere to be used by the player, despite this, the Elegy spawns in Hao's street races, so it's the same case as the Blimp, IMO if you are forced to download a vehicle from somewhere, then the vehicle can be classified as a DLC vehicle, which isn't the case of the Blista Compact, the Stallion and the Dukes.

I've taken the best idea and put it into action. A new category for the exclusives featured in GTA V has been added, this includes bonus weapons and vehicles available through pre-order, the special editions and the exclusives for returning players. I haven't added everything to it yet. Feel free to expand the info and the media within the category. Leo68 (talk) 17:10, February 10, 2015 (UTC)
