I think that this release delay is a marketing trick..these days people are talking about GTA4 because of a delay. people wouldn't talk about IV if there wasn't a delay. i vote for 18/11|21/11

Why would a delay make GTA IV more popular? If people didn't know about the game (living under a rock, perhaps?), chances are they're not gonna know about the delay.

This just wouldnt make any sense... they would've made enough copies, they wouldnt get any love for holding back the game, and its just completely sh*t to do to PC owners. Unless R* just loves to be mean to PC owners (Har har har) then its just completely unfair

So we didn't have to wait for two weeks, after all. Like I stated yesterday, it was obvious this was going to happen. The fact we were kept in some sort of limbo for days only shows that R* lacks respect/interest/good sense/business skills or whatnot.

Let's just hope *crosses his fingers and grabs hold of his lucky charm* that they will make good use of the extra time and that the game will play OK.

I wrote something about this in other thread but I think that its necessary to put it on the right one.

I do believe that they will launch the game worldwide on the same day... It would be a complete nonsense if they decide to release it on Europe and Australia 2 weeks before with people pirating games like hell nowadays. It is so obvius that I cannot understand why are you people still complaining about these 2 weeks' delay.

Think of it this way. Everyone has to suffer the same until release day. Not long to go.

hey come on, it would pass 2 weeks if GTA IV would be released on 17'th of November.But think that other 2 weeks you'll play Nfs Undercover, so be cool, you won't even know those weeks passed so rapidly.

Why do some people in this thread this game is being delayed to make it better? Its long since past the development stage. If they were still working on the game it would probably be a couple months (at least) before it would be released. I don't know that for a fact but I'm sure there's alot to do between development and release. Like pressing the DVD's and making the DVD case labels/liners.

Its being delayed for the same reason retailers are selling Christmas stuff 3 weeks early this year. To make up for the losses caused by the economy. They wanna start selling this game during the Christmas buying season to delude themselves into thinking its making up for profits lost during the last few months.
