I was really bummed when I first found out that GTA IV was delayed. I was looking forward to October 16th all year long. I wouldn't have had a problem if they hadn't announced the release date and then blown it. After anticipating something for so long, it really is a downer to have it taken away. I'm still excited for this game, but would really like a release day to look forward to. Maybe they haven't announced it because they're afraid of missing it again, or maybe they want a quieter time of the year for their announcement to make a bigger splash. Either way, I hope we hear soon!

> Another indication that the PS3 is harder to develop for is the fact that almost all multiplatform games arrive weeks - if not months - after their 360 versions.

Has anyone seen this:

http://kotaku.com/ga...ates-333859.php

It says:

If an official Sony blog told you when LittleBigPlanet and Killzone 2 were coming out, would you believe them? Here's your chance to test out that little conundrum. Three Speech have, amidst their 2008 preview of all things PS3, said that both games are due in Sep-Oct 2008. You'd think they'd be up-to-speed on those sort of things! Then again, they follow that up by saying GTAIV will be out in the same time period, so in the end, any decisions involving belief are up to you.

Don't think anything of it. They don't know anything and probably don't realise that TakeTwo keep reconfirming, rumour after rumour, that the game will still release in their second fiscal quater between February and April.

I think you are referring to the Take Two conference, they are talking about it here http://www.gtaforums...howtopic=303969 apparently doesn't start till 10pm UK time.

Well, to play devil's advocate, R* and T2 kept reconfirming and reconfirming the original release date, up until Aug.2 when they announced the delay. Just saying.

REALITY CHECK: Take 2 are quite clearly in money trouble according rumours and reports with the shares in the company gradually going down

click on the MAX icon on the graph to get full view
Take 2 shares

So the obvious solution to a money problem is to MAKE MONEY so I would expect to a sooner release then expected.

I'm not an economist or anything, but isn't the whole market experiencing a dip? It's not just Take Two.

tbh. The whole release date thing is starting to piss me and alot of other people off. They keep giving us trailers and screens when what everyone really wants is a F****** release date. Hint Hint R*

Im still loyal to the GTA faithful though?

agreed?

What you're saying about shares. Take-2 are always looking for more, isn't everyone? They'd probably make more money if they delay the game because more people get to hear about it and the hype grows. I don't however believe it has a great deal to do with money. I believe parts of the game are incomplete and Rockstar set themselves a deadline that couldn't be met.

I hope all these game companies are learning that: sh*t Ton Hype Machine + Lackluster Game = Pissed Off Fans and a net loss of potential buyers.

Let's see some quality out there people.
Delay if you have to, but lets get some quality out there.

I really have to get Uncharted: Drakes Fortune.

On-topic though the delay still remains a mystery, the real cause of it but there is the multiplayer aspect as well remember.

I just hope TakeTwo are being realistic with the games release schedule and that they are not just assuming when the game will be ready.

If the game is set back after April and into the summer people will be disappointed again. sad.gif

Yeah a very impressive game not very long but excellent. And that was done in 2 years all I have to say GTA IV better be one hell of a game as long as they are making us wait.

There's a lot more to making GTA IV then Uncharted...GTA IV has so much more content it's not even comparable.

Oh yeah I know that I was talking just gameplay and how amazing the game looked. Im pretty sure GTA IV is way bigger than uncharted.

I'd rather see a delay and then the end product being a developed, well-done, polished game than a rushed, broken game.
