According to Amazon.com, the new release date for GTAIV has been pushed back even further to June 30 next year.
Come next June, I think most games will be surpassing the GTA standard for the next-gen consoles.
I also predict that Blu-Ray will be better harnessed by then - oertaking the standard DVDs.
June is way too far away... Guess xbots wont have anything to play in the 1st half of 2008...
More time means more content = better use of Blu-Ray
That is a stupid thing to say.. MS has a ton of games for 08 that are floating around and they haven't even properly showed their hand yet for their 08 line-up. You will probably see it at GC or TGS and I think MS has it's own event planned for Europe.
June is the End of Q2 2008. June 30th is the last day of Q2 2008...
HMMMM. Common Practice since the release DATE is still open... ITs slated for RELEASE Q2 2008. hmmm.
Game will come probably May at latest. I forsee R* releasing it a bit after MGS4 (perhaps earlier for the 360?) so that ps3 version won't suffer that big of a sales hit.

i guess that sucks then doesnt it lol
HAHAHHAH AM PLAYING THIS GAME GOOD THING DAT I BRIBE DEM FROM THE MONEY I MAKE OFF MY PORN SITE HAHAHAHAH SORRY NERDS ON THE LIGHTER NOTE I PISS ON A CUP N MADE MY DOG DRINK IT
You just don`t ever shut up....When are you going to get banned?
well, i can always play MGS4 and FFXIII before that comes.
June 30, 2008, they're saying it's probably coming out at least by 2nd Quarter 2008. Amazon is just as clueless as us when it's coming
All of this because of that damn bottleneck 3! Even ps3 fangirls know that that`s the reason for the delay! Just look at the history! Rainbow six vegas, GRAW 2 and sooooo many others! Remember smackdown had to be cancelled because of the same problem?! Not to mention Assasins Creed! It was at first a ps3 exclusive then all of a sudden when they did show it, it was actually running on a XBOX 360 under a sheet in a glass case!
ur nothing but a Xbot fanboy how do u know it was cuz of the ps3 it could of been that sh!t system gaybox 360 ur stupid u know nothing at all maybe it had diffculty with the 360 version and MS asked them to push it back i know that ps3 is difficult to work but Rockstar worked with sony way before MS so u know its the gaybox 360 fault HOW U LIKE THEM APPLES
Guess this means it isn't held back due to Halo3. If that were the case, it would be out way earlier than June 30.
It must be either problems programming for the PS3 or lack of an HD in the XBOX360 Core. ;)
Man.. i wanted to play GTA4... i guess MGS4, FFXIII, R&CF:ToD, Uncharted, Warhawk, GT5, Assasin's Creed, Lair and Killzone 2 should hold me over...
Did anyone notice that it only mentions the 360 version?
maybe Xbox360 is more number of pre-order than PS3, so amazon just forget to revise PS3
No one knows when it is going to be released...
Amazon probably put June 30 as a placeholder date. The official word from T2 is that it's coming sometime in 2008.
blah blah blah
DVD-9 is too small
blah blah blah
There, I just saved you from reading the rest of the comments.
wow. thanks. you are a great time saver. now i can go back and play the bioshock demo.
10.1: Enjoy, you should try the hard mode.
Summed it up well drpirate. Flame war is comming soon, hold tight. :|
I thought it was coming out in april 2008 now?
Theres Fable 2 and Alan Wake to look forward to, that is what I can think off the top of my head and its 2:30am in the morning.
Ahh....Alan Wake a really great game that fell off the radar.
Just like Bio-shock, Alan-Wake game is way under-rated.
Guess that's the price for originality. Sad !
Bioshock under-rated? Many gamers and critics are saying nothing but excellent things about Bio. They are hyping the game perfectly, not too much to have a "Fable effect" (hyping the game too much, and when the game is released, many gamers are disappointed), and not too little to keep the game out of radar. However, I do see your point about Alan Wake. I haven't seen much about that game.
Have faith, not all of us have forgotten about Alan Wake ;)
JUST MAKE it RIGHT.
i got enough games to play between now and late late 08.
early 09 is when i want this, w/ as much as a jump in INNOVATION as GTA2 to GTA3.
T2 announced GTAIV delay to Q2 2008FY, T2's FY starts from Nov, so Q2 is Feb to Apr.
But Amazon.com din't care about T2's FY and put date just common Q2, it's from Apr to Jun, and not clear exact date yet, so simply put Q2's last day Jun 30th.
make sense, doesn't it ?
I'll be playing KillZone 2 and FF 13
to worse =(
And your just a PS3 fanboy.. shut up your stupid too.. your not making anything better.. your just adding to the stupid gayness of a console war.. there could be plenty of reasons for a delay maybe there aint even a problem with either console..
Who cares about this tired game.
i will be busy playing, bioshock, mass effect, assasins creed, prolly some Halo 3, Too worlds. Kane and Lynch. im good if GTAIV takes a little bit longer.
