Publishers Could Gain From GTA IV Delay

With the anticipated release date of Grand Theft Auto IV pushed back until spring 2008, Rockstar Games' competitors stand to gain this holiday season.

According to data released today by IGN GamerMetrics, two other multiplatform games in particular could capture gamers' interest - and dollars - instead.

For both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Activision's squad-based shooter Call of Duty 4: Modern Combat topped the list of games that will benefit most from GTA IV's delay. The GamerMetrics numbers, based on data culled from gamers who expressed interest in buying GTA IV in the last 30 days, show a 91 percent overlap in interest between COD4 and GTA IV on the Xbox 360 and a 71 percent overlap between the titles among PS3 gamers.

i think its a good idea to hold the game back till next year, simply because they have to compete with all these new games coming out this year. if they wait till april they dont have to worry about any games taking away GTA4 shine(HILO3). and it gives them alot more time to make the game betta for both systems. i know the game isnt being held back because of the ps3 they just dont want people to know the truth of the real reason why they went and held it back.
