SIP YEK NOD gets the ball rolling on the ol "its cuz the ps3 is too complicated"/"its cuz of the crappy dvd 360" theories


could this be because the ps3 is too complicated, or the xbox 360s dvd limitation catspider.gif

Ah, damn. I knew something wasn't kosher. Rockstar kept claiming to be showing 'older' demo builds, editors kept complaining of choppy frame-rate, etc. Things just didn't add up.

Maybe the game just wasn't where Rockstar wanted it to be. I honestly hope this is a case of just wanting to do a better job on the finished product, not something to do with another bunch of critics trying to slap the AO rating on IV. Hey, you never know. I've got a feeling Rockstar is under more pressure than we could possibly understand after that whole Manhunt 2 bit.

Oh, well. Looks like we're all waiting till next year for this title to show it's face on store shelves. However, I wonder where we go from here with announcements and new information? With a setback like this..well, it's possible the information will slow down, even come to a grinding halt.

Don't expect anything new to come of this, the game will now be almost complete. They won't use this time to add new features to the core promise of the game.

Well, seeing as how Rockstar wanted players to discover most of the game for themselves, I doubt we'll be getting any new info about the game itself for, quite a while.

Wow that's a surprise. Damn... that's a long as wait. I can see it being delayed a month or so... but yeah, 6 is a LOT. At least the game will be even more perfect... or something. Hopefully there'll be nearly no glitches, and they really make this game as great as possible. 6 months is a LONG TIME.

Uhg, man.

The playstation 3 build we all knew was behind by a couple of weeks, considering R* have an agreement to release the game on both consoles simultaneously, has the PS3 caused this delay?

A six-month delay!! confused.gif

This is the worst news EVER.

Maybe it has to do with the content and ESRB?? I mean, fixing the bugs and glitches doesn't take 6 months!! I'm sure they are to adjust some of the game content.

Worst news ever!! suicidal.gif

Wow. While I want my new GTA as soon as possible, I want the best game R* can give me. If that means waiting another few months, so be it. I wonder what the Halo fans think of all this...

Rockstar have better make sure that the "Bug Searchers" they have pull their finger out and do a good job, becuase with a 6 month delay, people should now expect a top-notch game with NO bug whatsoever.

Well didn't some report from seeing the E3 version that it was highly unstable framerate wise? guess they took the advise from that. I'll admit, I'm am pissed off since it was the game to look forward to this year. But it just means I can spend my £40 on something else Q4.

Annoying it's a good few months into 08.

With that much of a delay i'm expecting flying cats and dogs that wield rocket launchers. Maybe we can fly space shuttles. cry.gif

... seriously though, were they planning on screwing us over by releasing it in October? It can't be that unfinished.. can it?
