K, but I still don't understand his post. What does February have with November?

Eh, don't worry about it, the guy's just being a troll. Ignore him.

I still think it's all rumors, or pre order shipping delays. Websites get their info from other websites and if one website has a false release date then it spreads like a disease. ...again just wishful thinking lol.. confused.gif

It starts with a few drinks here and there. Next thing you know, you're experimenting with illegal drugs. Before you know it, you're making posts like Flat Face did.

Funny fact though, I didn't realize it until now, but if you are born on that one "extra" day, you get to celebrate your birthday "properly" only every four years. I think this is perfect for women biggrin.gif wouldn't you say.

 

Every day you learn something new. Even trolls have their purpose, I guess. But I understand what you are saying. One day you are having a few laughs and smoke some twigs with your pals and before you know it your family and friends are ashamed of you as you stopped making any sense and have become a bantering troll. A sad destiny for a young soul.

Ah, it all makes sense now. Moral of this story: don't do drugs, kids. You'll end up like Flat Face.

 

Anyway, about this delay, I can't imagine why they'd only delay the US release and not the EU/AU one. Don't wanna look a gift horse in the mouth but it's mighty strange. Or it could just be that, for some reason, it's taking longer for EU/AU stores to release updates about the delay.

That will be down to me, I merged the two threads but merged it the wrong way so it merged the title as well. I thought it better to merge your post with this one rather than have two separate threads discussing the same thinhg.

I just thought of something...

Ever wondered why the new commercial said "COMING SOON to the PC"?

 

 

Perhaps, a delay is the reason...

If they are delaying the game because of the commercial then R*/T2 is even more stupid then I thought. They had six months to layout the "business" plan for PC and mark some key dates on their f*cking calendar. You know, just to be prepared.

 

Something like this

 

April 29th - go on a vacation

May 5th - while on vacation, gloat over nice console sales

May 6th - have dirty phone calls and exchange frivolous sms messages with our MS and Sony masters

May 20th - come back from a vacation

May 21th to June 6th - go down on our MS and Sony masters

June 7th - start to actually work

June 8th - make plans for a PC release

June 25th - an urgent meeting with MS to discuss their oh-so-precious DLC

June 26th - since we haven't done anything in DLC department we need to take one HARD up the ass from MS executives, while Sony representatives are watching

July 6th - make plans for an official PC release date for October 1st

July 7th - have an urgent meeting with MS about the PC release date

July 8th - change the planned PC release date for November 18th

August 6th - announce the PC version by raising as little media attention as possible

October 1st - make plans for PC console trailer

October 2nd - have an urgent meeting with MS about the PC trailer

October 3rd - change some details about the PC trailer

October 7th - release the PC console trailer.

October 20th - Dan has to go to a herpetologist for an exam. Makes appointment for November 18th

October 21st - silently push back the PC release date for two weeks

October 23rd - as the PC version is as good as it will ever be, start working on MS DLC

Newegg.com also has it for the latter date.

 

The only good thing about this delay is that I can actually get the game w/out preordering it since I get paid every 2 weeks (I'll give it to myself as an early christmas present)

Yes its been delayed

To lazy to click?

 

 

Amazon, GameStop bump ship date for Rockstar Games' top-rated open-world action adventure two weeks beyond official November 18 launch.

 

In its two weeks on the market, Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 did more business than most other games could hope for over the course of their entire life spans. Take-Two and Rockstar are hoping to carry that momentum into the holiday season, given that they're releasing all-new downloadable content for the Xbox 360 edition as well as a PC version of the game.

 

However, gamers may have to wait just a bit longer to jump behind the wheel of Roman's taxi on the PC, if a handful of retailers are to be believed. Both Amazon and GameStop are now under the impression that the PC edition of GTAIV will be available on December 2, two weeks later than Rockstar's previously announced shipping date of November 18.

 

As has been proven innumerable times in the past, retailers are often fed tips by publishers so that they can properly allocate resources and promotional materials. Rockstar had not responded to GameSpot's inquiry as of press time.

 

Grand Theft Auto IV requires little in the way of explanation, and any perfunctory attempt would be trite at best. The game scored top marks from GameSpot upon its console release earlier this year. GTAIV went on to set a Guinness World Record for "the largest launch in the history of interactive entertainment," having sold 3.6 million units and earned $310 million within its first 24 hours on the market. As of last month, the game had sold more than 10 million units worldwide.

 

For more on the game, check out GameSpot's exhaustive previous coverage

 

Its not 100 % proven to be delayed but i 50 % think so thank god i live in russia now

 

To those wondering if dlc will be availible on pc the answer is yes

 

 

they're releasing all-new downloadable content for the Xbox 360 edition as well as a PC version of the game

Today amazon was asking me to verify my desire for it still to ship because the estimated arrival date changed from November 24th to December 8th.

It also said "we have gotten word from the publishers..."

Well, 2/3 weeks longer wait ain't that much... Yes, I'd also like to play the game 'asap', but it's not that we're going to die because of it!

 

On top of that, go and pick up Call of Duty: World at War in the meantime... it's going to be a blast if I must believe the gameplay video's/opinions from friends!

So, with GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas all being released on time (6 months after console releases), it seems that Rockstar have gotten pretty bad at meeting deadlines. Everything they said the PC version will be "getting" should've already had capabilities in the game engine for. They obviously never tested the engine on PC, never intended to test it (until the last minute), and will probably make sweeping changes in the future, which ALSO will not be tested on PC.

 

If it were me directing the game's development (or a different, more-competent game development team), the tiny list of differences with the PC version would've already been accounted for. Changing a couple of graphical SETTINGS, adding mouse and keyboard support, adding a replay system, and "expanding" the multiplayer, all seem like engine-level enhancements. If Rage was ever intended to be a multi-platform engine, then these features should've been implemented when the engine was first developed.

 

People who say "it's distribution" or "it's only 2 weeks or so" are missing the point.

 

"it's distribution": If this is the case, then why wasn't distribution prepared and started earlier, so as to meet the demands of the PC crowd which they've been royally-screwing these past few years? Why did development take so long, that distribution became a last-minute rush-job?

"it's only 2 weeks or so": It still means that they make PC gamers wait a further 2 weeks. Are they going to actually promote the f*cking game during the extra, undeserved 2-weeks of pre-release time? I don't f*cking think so. Nope. Hey, it might even be a stealth-job; with Garret from Thief hired to sneak the copies onto store shelves...hoping not be spotted by consumers.

 

Who knows... who the f*ck knows...?
