| They did not lie. They saw the reaction of nit being able to buy properties and no RPG Elements. So they delayed it 6 months to add some stuff. |
THAT IS NOT WHY THEY DELAYED IT.
it was all in, they didnt delay the game just because of that you Sloth mind fool
So you really think a 4-6 month delay was for what? From the Game Informer preview until the may 2nd previews, what is your theory on why they had a 4-6 MONTH DELAY.
The 4 months are to finalize the game, bug- and playtesting, optimizing, sound, voices... not add fully fledged features. At this point you only cut them. No theory, just cold hard reality that a game like this assloads of work and even more planning.. so you don't just throw in a feature right near launch just because some fans are somewhat angryish about it... That said, fan reaction/online sentiment is a terrible predictor anyway, you can't base decisions on that.
There's just no way...
With hundreds of people working on a 100 million $$$ game you really think 4-6 months is purely for bug testing etc...? You really don't know how this sh*t works do you?
So your telling me with the biggest Gaming publication magazine in the UNITED STATES (where rockstar gets a majorty of there sales & sales statistics from) would produce an article saying no properties no hair customization, no skills, then at the end of January, 30 days after the article was produced, a major delay occurred, the company is silent until late April about any specific information and may rolls around (around the time the game was predicted to release), the ideas that a majority of the fans complained about happened to appear in a huge preview of information.
Now tell me, where did the properties, the skills, the customization that was left out in JANUARY appear from now in MAY? January also marked the last bit of MP3 dlc to come out, so with teams not working on that, it gave extra manpower to work on GTAV from jan-may, which allowed for a team of hundreds of people to work on a huge project, specific teams working on certain aspects, yeah i believe the delay was for the fans, it was to make the fans happy for the long waiting period from the 1st trailer to the 2nd one, its for the TRUE fans who are going to buy the game because its GTA and they love the series, that's what the delay is for.
The property buying, the skill building, the customization, its not that big of a feature to instill this late in the game compared to changing story lines or re recording audio etc... Those things aren't changing the storyline, which is what the game revolves around. Those things are only adding to the gameplay which isn't awfully hard to change.
