Let's take a look at what happened on the prediction market when news of the delay hit the Web. GTA IV's stock, which predicts lifetime global sales, showed little change in price for both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 before and after the announcement, and there was virtually no change in the lifetime forecast for either version. The same is true with the lifetime Xbox 360 and the PS3 hardware units. This implies that the thousands of participants on the simExchange believe that, in the long-term, GTA IV's delay will have little to no affect on hardware sales for both the Xbox 360 and the PS3. The short-term is a different story.
