Yeah Amazon they are known for their accuracy aren't they. You just need to look at that page to see they can't tell their arse from their elbow. Apparently according to Amazon GTA 4 will run in windows 98, Windows 2000 and Windows ME (not a chance in hell will it). So if they got that wrong what's to say they didn't get over stuff like the release date wrong.

 

I could equally show you another 10 retail sites that are all stating GTA 4 for the PC is being released on 18/21st November, so why should we believe Amazon above all other retail sites ?

 

The official date is 18th/21st November, I see no reason why that should change and I think I would rather trust official sources over Amazon.

The fact that according to amazon GTA IV can run on windows ME and 98 and vista isn't written at all says everything about the release date they've wrote.

It's not delayed, aside from the arguments mentioned by others I'd like to add that Rockstar would not have put that trailer mentioning the PC version in a newsletter send two days ago if they were delaying it. Besides, with little over three weeks to go they are very close to going gold, if they haven't already (the announcement of the gold copy is usually later than the actual finishing of it). Hell, they wouldn't have showed it to journalists a couple of days ago when it was going to be delayed!

 

Why don't we stop pulling strings here and give Rockstar a bit of credit. They didn't announce the console versions delay three weeks before the planned release, now did they?

Hey guys, don't flame me, but I just got off the phone with a rep. at Amazon.com and he told me that they got an update from R* saying that they couldn't meet the inventory necessary for distribution by Nov. 21. This is why the site shows Dec. 2. If it were some small-time seller, I wouldn't make much of it. I have to think there's validity/credibility to this. If true, I do not know if this means the European release date would be after Dec. 2 or not. Take it for what it's worth.

 

Be positive! If it's wrong, then great. It will come sooner than we think (the original release date). If it's true, then it's only a few extra days. No big deal either way.

Sounds like somebody underestimated how many copies they'd need to ship for the PC gamers.

If this is true I will be a bit pissed off about it, sod the damn inventory crap this is the 21st century, release the damn game on a 21st century technology i.e. STEAM. Last time I checked steam doesn't have "inventory troubles".

"inventory troubles"

It could also be an excuse to cover up the fact that they just f*cked up something with the port, and needed more time. You know...to make it look like they still know what they're doing when developing for the PC.

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. Also, it may be highly possible to play the game on older OS's like 98, 2000, ME, etc, you just may need to update your DX version and stuff. I mean it is easy to update the DX, just by putting your SA disc into your DVD drive and installing DX 9 from that-there is an option for it on the PC SA disc. It just depends on what hardware you have "under the hood"-meaning in the CPU on you PC(2000, 98, ME, etc). As long as you have at least 1GB Ram, a decent Video/Graphics card, A decent Processor, etc, it doesn't matter what OS you have, it should play just fine. For example, just look at Vista, SA, VC, and GTA3 were not made for it, yet thet all still work just as good if not better on Vista than they do on XP. Hope this clears up some confusion and let's not have another debate about the different OS's again or this will be locked by a Mod, just like the last two or three topics were.

No, it is IMPOSSIBLE for the game to be delayed. It is only a port plus few extras, they already got the game.

Haven't any of you learnt anything from previous releases?

 

Don't f*cking trust Rockstar with release dates, because there is a high probability they will push it back.

Prior to Rockstar entering into the threesome with both Sony AND Microsoft, release dates issued be Rockstar were accurate and rarely subject to change. Now, when they've got their code in a mess, priorities totally out of order, and (it would seem) estimates for how many copies of the PC version of GTA IV they will need, off by a long shot, they can't seem to get the date right.

LOL true I'm obsessed this game too since August 6th. Imagine 2 weeks of delay isn't a short time, but hmmm i can more concentrate about my exams coz it will start on 21th Nov. Wow if the game released on the same day, it really makes me want to play that instead of studying. So if GTA IV will delayed, i just disappointed a while then wait for 1 week, the game will on my hand.

 

And for radioman, do you think that GTA IV PC will released on November 18th 2009? Hell no !!!

 

EDIT:

I think the mail from R* Propaganda that say Coming soon GTA IV PC News & Media, they will announce that the game will be delayed, and in the same mail they reveal the min. reqs.

You really have no idea what you are talking about. The delay of the console version was announced two and a half months before it's original release date, we are now three weeks from the release date. It makes no sense for it to get a major delay. A minor one of one or two weeks is possible but I think unlikely as it would have most likely been announced by now already. One spokesperson from Amazon isn't enough to go by as far as I'm concerned. He could be misinformed or just talking out of his ass to cover up a mistake that was made in writing that page, who knows.

 

Second, the old operating systems will not be supported. The 9x series are no longer supported by Microsoft, not even with security patches anymore. Furthermore the install base has gotten way too small to justify spending resources on supporting them, which is quite expensive as the game has to be made to run on those and the game has to be fully tested on each platform. This is not going to happen. In fact, the only reason XP is still supported is because so many people still haven't switched to Vista (including myself).

 

Oh and don't confuse backwards compatibility offered by Vista for old applications such as SA with a game actually supporting old operating systems, those are two very different things.

 

PS: if you don't want a debate on OSes you shouldn't start it.
