It is highly possible that the PC version may be delayed, look at the PS3 and X-Box versions-there were due to release in November of 2007, but got pushed back like 6-months or so.

That's because it wasn't ready. The game was announced and the first trailer was released on March 2007.

Gamestop is saying 12/2/08 now as well. Something must be up. Pisses me off because I'm impatient by nature, but I won't be building a PC capable of running it til around March anyway. I just don't want to take the chance of a second edition like San Andreas. I'm actually going to own in on all 3 consoles once I find the new Jasper version of the Xbox 360. I don't know which systems will get exclusive DLC/expansions later but there better be a way to buy them all on disc, cause I still can't get broadband out here in farm country. They are still planning extra content, right?

One other possible explanation...perhaps R* is working on a special edition/collector's edition and they need a little extra time to get the included items manufactured. Of course it would have to be a simultaneous launch, so they couldn't release a standard edition then release a collector's edition 10 days later.

Also, another possible positive from this (from PC gamers outside the U.S.) is that we could see a simultaneous European launch (Dec. 2). R* surely does not want to push this game back any further with Christmas just around the corner. It's all about the money with Rockstar.

gamespot.com still says the 18th so this "rumor" maybe true or not true and ebgames where I live(Canada Nova-Scotia) still says Nov.18th. Let's just all hope it still release's on the 18th.

Even if it's true, it doesn't matter.
My hardware won't play it until December.
At least I have it preordered.

@Wezz6400, What do you mean the 9x series is not supported anymore? What do you think XP uses. Plus, if you put your SA disc in your PC's DVD drive, on like the second or third option, it gives the option to install DX 9.0c. So if by chance you still have DX 8, you can easily upgrade to DX9 simply by using the SA disc. And when I checked Microsoft.com the other day, they still have a download for DX 9 and DX 10, the DX 9 one is in the XP section and the DX 10 is in the Vista section. To my knowledge, XP does not yet support DX 10 yet. I'm not starting a OS debate, just stating the facts. I think I covered it pretty well. Enough said. Hope this helps clear up some confusion.

radioman you have no clue what you're talking about, first of all DirectX10 will NEVER be available for XP (not through Microsoft anyway), second, Windows 9x/ME IS unsupported, do you honestly think just because you installed DirectX 9.0c it somehow magically work? ...

taken straight from microsoft.com:
http://support.microsoft.com/w98

"Effective July 11, 2006, Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Me (and their related components) will transition to a non-supported status. After this date, Microsoft will no longer provide any incident support options or security updates. Microsoft is not offering a custom support agreement for these products."

There are third party programmers that have already made it for XP

I heard that as well, but I also heard that its no where near perfect and doesn't quite work like DX10 really would on Vista.

I blame AMD, ATi, and Logitech for the delay.

It had to be said, remember when the console fanboys were fighting over which console was causing that large delay with the console release.

I was talking about the Windows 9x operating system series, not directx.
DX10 will not come on XP and if some 3rd party guy does it anywhere close to usuable he will be sued by Microsoft so you can kiss that goodbye. Good thing I can get vista for free (legally), I'd never consider paying for that piece of crap.

I Blame Intel, Nvidia and some generic brand for the delay

..or what? You'll cut off your d*ck for a game being delayed? Jeez. Everyone calm down, this haven't been confirmed by cockstar yet, and that "inventory" theory doesn't really make any sense to me, the game should be f*cking done by now and they should be making the copies as we speak.

I can say one thing for certain - if someday somehow R* stumbles upon all the fands wrote, they will undoubtedly raise the price of the game. What the hell - they are so worried about a 3 day delay, how the game will run and stuff, they will fork up at least $200 dollars for the game...

After seeing first hand how AWFULL the Bully Port is, I say give them 2-3 months if they need it! What ever they do they should not Release GTA4 if its in the same state as Bully (To fill those who dont know about the Bully Port,... well less than half of the people who bought it can actually play it!)

erm Bully performs pretty badly on any computer. I wasn't incredibly impressed with the 15 - 20fps dips on my quadcore and 8800gts with 3gbs of memory. So please do suggest what computer we are actually meant to use to play Rockstars games then, when the 8800gts is twice the power as the xbox 360 ?. Bully was a sh*t sorry excuse for a port and whilst it wasn't done by Rockstar North it has raised concerns for me personally about Rockstars ability to do anything outside of being coddled and babied by MS and Sony.

I am planning on getting this game for Christmas from my parents (gotta love being 15 yrs old).. So as long as it doesn't get pushed after the Dec 2.. I'm fine with it.
I can't imagine they push it further than that, they'd lose big bucks.

Bully was ported by R* New England and all 3D GTA's ported by R* North. So I hope we get a very good game. But I don't understand New England. Before 2008 they developed all their games for the PC. Maybe "developed", not "ported".

Oh this is destroying my plans for post-exam happieness. GTAIV is/was coming out on 21st in aus... My exams are almost over by then so i want to be able to celebrate the end of another f*ckmothering school year by crunching people on the sidewalk and shooting down helicopters while listening to hilarious lazlow on the radio. Ive wanted GTAIV for so long after SA and couldnt get it cos i love the PC and think console gaming is a copout for those inable to understand how to make a good computer. I am definately for making the game the best it can be but i just think if R* sets a date they should stick to it... that's been Valve's problem all along, almost another 2 months for HL2EP1... shocking...
