A good chunk of the games originally planned to go on sale before the holidays this year are getting delayed by weeks or even months. So maybe it's time for game makers to stop focusing so heavily on the pre-Christmas shopping frenzy.
Legendary Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto is generally credited with the quote that "A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever." All other game producers take note.
It sucks why couldn't they just release the xbox version when it was done then the ps3 version when later. Everyone starting to think the ps3 version is the one that is holding back the game.
the Xbox version!! Read before you post!!
i think everyone has forgot that rockstar was having problems in dev because of the harddriveless 360
i doubt the game would be ready for xbox before xmas. But I wish they would do that and see how crappy it would be for Xbox and put all these stupid PS3 rumors down...
Panthers, i can see how youre an optimist. It may not be the PS3's or the 360's fault for GT4 being delayed. Stuff happens, plans dont run perfectly, they had that release date set more then a year ago. At least these publishers are trying to do the best they can.
Do us all a favour and buy a PS3. Uncharted-Drake's Fortune, Lair, Hevenly Sword, Warhawk, Heavy Rain, Hot Shots 5, Folklore, Ratchet & Clank, Unreal Tournament 3, Time Crisis 4 with Guncon, Eight Days, Gran Tourismo HD, Tekken 6 and then after Christmas(No more than one or two months after)theres: Infamous, Burnout Paradise, Killzone 2, Metal Gear Solid 4. AND ofcourse MORE like..... GTA IV
did u really say xcrapbox o come on dude that was lame u can think of something better
dude i happen to find myself on sony's side, but do us all a favor and stop spamming these threads
They lied to you when thay said it would come out in 2007.
I will be happy. That's a game we'll be playing still even in 2010!
that is a gaygamer.net comment "as long as halo 3 doesnt get delayed because that is one game i'll be playing to 2010"lmao
PS3 and even Xbox 360 need a lot of resources to make games with top notch production values. Debugging is probably a nightmare on PS3. Compressing information to make it fit on a DVD9 is probably a nightmare on 360. Remember fanboys; it's a two-sided coin here. By the way, there's no reason to delay Wii games other than lazy developers. I wonder what the Metroid Prime 3 team was doing all this time if they weren't even able to add multi-player, yet delayed the game a lot of times?
that is my question... =) because, there are left so many games to play for me... that i even don`t care much about delaying, i care more about how to find time to play all these great games and i not speak about replaying some good old games...
its funny, i kinda find it weird that people moan about all these games but do they realy play it? My guess is most of these guys are showoffs, just because you have it..doesn't mean your a gamer. Hey do something for a change do it!
Legendary Nintendo game designer Shigeru Miyamoto is generally credited with the quote that "A delayed game is eventually good. A bad game is bad forever." that is so ture you got to like that quote. about games that are delayed to me it is good because they could add more feature and fix all the bugs. also it next gen bit..es
Companies are now a days asked by console manufacturers for a release date sometimes a full year before the game is released. This means that the programmers have to allow for error fixing and bug finding, they also have to allow for programming difficulties. But things never run that smoothly. That is the area where the 360 has the advantage, it is programmed the same way that PC games are programmed. This means that most companies who have made PC games will be quite at home whilst programming the 360. The PS3 is programmed very differently, this is a huge disadvantage until developers learn to utilise the console properly. This leads to some games being delayed. PS2 and PS3 have both suffered because Sony chose to take the unconventional approach when designing their console. As games become more complecated, larger and more elaberate (as in controls and what you can do on the game) so it becomes a more longer and drawn out process. Once companies have become more competent with the new hardware and what it can do, the games will become better and will arrive on time.
Game development is VERY expensive and involves a substantial financial risk. Companies are waiting to put the game out until they either are happy with it or can't possibly wait any longer and need to start getting some money to pay creditors/employees etc. Personally, I'd rather wait for the completed game. I'm much more likely to buy their product if it is solid and not rushed.
Cell=garbage, delays, mediocre quality games.
Uncharted-Drake's Fortune, Lair, Hevenly Sword, Warhawk, Heavy Rain, Hot Shots 5, Folklore, Ratchet & Clank, Unreal Tournament 3, Time Crisis 4 with Guncon, Eight Days, Gran Tourismo HD, Tekken 6 and then after Christmas(No more than one or two months after)theres: Infamous, Burnout Paradise, Killzone 2, Metal Gear Solid 4. AND ofcourse MORE like..... GTA IV What exactly are all of those? most are 2008 titles if anything, and the rest aren't even a games at that. Games will be delayed all the time since people demand they made them better by better visuals, and sacrificing the rest of the game by making it a 60min game.
I posted this a little while ago, but so you guys can stop naggin eachother, I will do it again! Holiday season is full of games that may fly under the radar due to higher profile titles. Rockstar could have released GTA4 this october, but would have had to compete with alot of other games. GTA would have sold alot, but some of it's sales would have been taken away by other games! Lost planet and Dead rising were ok games! But because they launched during a period with virtually no competition... they sold millions! With GTA4 being as popular as it is already, and to launch during a time when it can have the field all to itself... The game will sell to GTA fans, and everyone else who just wants something to play. GTA4 will sell at least 10 million during it's launch! The game is done already on both systems! They are just fine tuning and polishing it until it's release date. Don't be fooled by all this hype they keep feeding you, "ps3 too difficult!", "360 disc too small!" San Andreas was an extremely large game, yet it only took up half a dvd. GTA4 is the same as GTA3, except the graphics are better, and they have some better physics! Alot of companies realized that Dead rising and Lost planet sold so well cause of tax season(people had extra money), and the lack of competition(not alot of games coming out). Look for this to be the new standard for releasing high profile titles, and for x-mas to be for new IP's! Need proof? Didn't MGS4 and a few other well known games get pushed to early 2008! Oh! And keep in mind that Rockstar now has $50 million to play with, which gives them time to start work on the downloadable content as well!
For consoles than people wouldn't bother playing games anymore cause its just getting very ridiculous seriously either they release it or dont make it at all!.
