Rockstar Games have updated the Grand Theft Auto Homepage
Go check it out.
whatever... its weird this whole delay thing... i LOVED the previous gta's but rockstar is quickly losing its good standing in my head. it seems like they are screwing over the 360 fanbase and making all the fans wait so that they can catch up the ps3 version / make mmoney next quarter.. whichever one it is. it sucks. wow dont they know ALOT of ps2 guys moved over to xbox? they need to get the bigger picture
You're absolutely correct... and guess what, I think you could be the perfect person to tell them just that! I'm sure they could you a visionary like you there. The company's revenue is equivalent to a small country so how could they afford to analyze the real situation with skilled people?
actually they do see the bigger picture... They have announced exclusive ps3 titles, haven't they? hehe.. *runs*
There is nothing wrong with the ps3 or 360 version. They just need more time to finish it. Stop blaming the consoles.
bubbles for you. I don't understand, surely the fact that the developer are spending more time with the game, getting rid of bugs and defects within the game is a good thing right?! obviously not to some people on this site. I just don't understand the logic of some people, they would rather it came out in october even if the quality of the game was lacking?! makes no sense, good on rockstar for delaying the game, screw microsoft and sony, release the game only when its finished and of a high quality standard, then everyone will be happy, plenty of games in the mean time for both systems.
oh and btw, calm down.. its just a freaking delay.. there are plenty of games out when we reach fall..
but guess what... i agree lol they could definitly use "me" or "you" or just bring more people in who are just gamers who are still in touch with wat gamers are into and our concerns... oh well honestly... rockstar's only gem is gta, most other things they do are just vaugly simaler gta clones lol go figger... oh and i havent slept yet, so dont rebut this guys im too tired to make good arguments now. oh and i finnaly played heavenly sword last night. Ninja Gaiden (xbox 1) > Heavenly sword (ps3) ( sorry i couldent resist, but u guys know its true too!)
If they're delaying it for the PS3 to catch up, that just means the 360 version is finished, so now they can polish and optimize it for a few extra months.
Anyway, the 360 hard drive conspiracy is just as likely as the PS3 one, so quit blaming when you don't know the story.
I don't think it's either one, though. Delaying the game really hurt their earnings this year. Tack that onto the Manhunt fiasco, and their bottom line is just wrecked. If they had either version finished, I'm sure they'd release it just to keep from getting financially slammed so hard.
Hell, now that I think about it, maybe the recent Manhunt thing scared them and now they want to make sure the censures will actually let them sell this one. If they released it and it was banned everywhere, they'd probably go belly up.
I highly doubt that. If R* were the spooky type they would have calmed down significantly after the "hot coffee" incident don't you think? Apparently it didn't phase them too much because Manhunt 2 received an AO and is all but banned everywhere.
And Manhunt 2 IS finished, they were on schedule for a July release remember?
I have no problem with them delaying a game to "polish" it, but I highly doubt that is the case here. They've run into unforeseen problems with either or both of the next gen consoles. I say this because everything was on schedule, I can't remember them delaying a GTA game in the past. I mean they had us really hyped up n' ready for an October '07 release, trailers, ad's, everything. Then all of a sudden...
There's obviously an agreement to release it on both console at the same time.
Boring comment aside, if I was playing "Clue" I'd go with the Mr. Sony with the Cell in Rockstar's testing department, but I've never been good at this game...
Contradictory comment aside, delays are forgiveable, releasing premature material isn't. So if it needs more time, I'll just pretend it was not scheduled earlier and I'll still expect a unanimous AAA.
The site looks really cool IMO. Great find.
Better for me now i have more time to get money for other games. :)
