It was refreshing to read those opinions... a breath from stupid/dumb fanboy posts.

I for one am glad it is delayed...for one it gives time to save up money and two i think it will be a better game in the end.

however, i don't like the one guy saying it is because of ps3 and the other saying it is because of 360 hdd. i just think hat there is such high expections of the game and rock* doesn't wana letdown anyone.

....on a seprate note...we all know no hard drive was gonna bite us in the a*s...i think ms has shot itself in the foot

basically repeating the same rumors as everyone else. well in case it was well written and I do agree that the delay will allow smaller games on x360 and PS3 a time to shine, so in that regard the delay was a good thing.

I played Halo 2, i got half way through it and stopped playing it because i was bored of it, good game, nothing unreal. i mean i here MS fanboys go we got halo, if someone with a PS3 wanted to play halo they would have got a radiator 180, but no they got a PS3, which they paid $200 more for, that's stating something PS3 is a much better looking console; it basically is a better console.

I was a little disappointed when I started but towards the end things started picking pace only to go straight down the cliff in the end, gameplay was always fun

You got it the other way around my friend. Who knows if it affects PS3 or 360 more. But as you XBOX 360 fans have told us for a while, how much of a console pusher is GTA IV for PS3 when it will also appear on the cheaper XBOX 360 with exclusive content?

Many predicted that 2007 was XBOX 360's perfect storm with both Halo, GTA, and a cheaper price tag. It was gonna make PS2 fans jump to XBOX 360. Who knows maybe that won't happen now that you only have Halo this year.

Those same people also say 2008 is when PS3 will have a better year and it won't hurt if that's when people who buy a console just for GTA IV, have to make their choice. In the end the game is multi platform so I kinda take it out of the equation. I don't really think anyone benefits from the delay. But I think both sides can make an argument.

Your comment on the whole double F* you to Sony, probably wasn’t needed.
