I am not a big fan of the games but I know others on this forum are so here's the link: http://www.joystiq.com/2007/08/02/grand-theft-auto-iv-d...ed-from-oct-to-q208/ (http://www.joystiq.com/2007/08/02/grand-theft-auto-iv-delayed-from-oct-to-q208/)

I remember some people were planning on playing GTA4 till AC comes out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

OMG I cannot believe this baloni. I guess I'll have to pick up MGS4 over GTAIV since they'll be released at the same time, kind of...

Im Thinking of Getting MGS4 anyway, watched that video from Kojima and looks good, havent really played the rest but this one looks good.

And apprantly the delay isnt a joke.

They post it on IGN (http://ps3.ign.com/articles/810/810238p1.html), too. So this isn't a joke...

well i was worried with gta coming out that assassins creed wouldnt get played much - at least this way i have the chance to play assassins creed loads and enjoy the free roaming more than i would if i was just gonna play gta - if that makes sense

so basically the delay for me just gives me a bit of time to enjoy assassins creed more

I kind of agree. But you have to admit, it is pretty fun playing GTA. The free roam is great. I wouldn't say it's entertaining. I find it quite disturbing killing random people. But it's only a video game. It's not real...

Yeah, I know. It's just the appeal of the "THUG LYFE" and the rap music that gets me angry about it. My roommate has San Andreas and I do have to admit that driving cars into buildings is fun.

GTA 4 isnt as much about Black gang bangers and stuff like that. Unlike GTa SA, GTA 4 actually looks promising seeing as they have added new features and steared onto the track of Realism.

I mjust hope the time taken means they are adding last minute improvements that are gonna take a little longer.

Exactly. I hate it when simple games like that get good reviews, but a new style game comes out with an ACTUAL STORY and GRAMMAR and they bash it for all of the little things. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Not to be offensive, but GTA series looks like it's for simple minds (Hopefully not any of you guys.) that cannot comprehend many things.

PS3 is to blame for the delay. They are still able to release the 360 version on time but they promised that they would release both games at the same time so because of this the 360 version will have to wait for the ps3 version to complete.

Here's the story: http://www.gamesindustry.biz/content_page.php?aid=27326

Becuase the PS3 is harder to code for, and has superior technolgy. This also gives time for the Xbox360 version to be polished up and add new things to it if they need to.

I just don't like Sony anymore and PS3 just isn't PS2. PS2 was the best. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I don't care if the PS3 has a laser cannon attatched to it. I don't care if my games look a little more realistic. Just look at (I forget their names) sig, and just look at the stats.

I think that it's funny that Sony said that they'd dominate and especially dominate the Wii. But the Wii has sold about 9 mill, while PS3 has sold about 3.5 mill and Xbox 11 mill.

You can't call me a non Sony fan, cause I LOVED the PS2. God of War, Ratchet and Clank, Jak and daxter, Sly Cooper, Okami. I loved them all!

But PS3 doesn't even cut for me. I couldn't buy one even if I wanted to.


Anyway, I guess that we should get back on topic.
