Official UK Playstation site updated: "Grand Theft Auto IV is now finally on the horizon" coming Oct 2007

This may be the Playstation site with incorrect release dates - it has been known before. But with the rumours of a big announcement for PS3 in October...

Update:

BTW, the "...is now finally on the horizon" bit comes from the main PS3 page on the site: http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/

I think A LOT of us love this game.

This would be a VERY smart move for Sony though, if they were able to make it happen. But I really don't think that the game was that far along for the PS3. I'd love to be proven wrong... but I don't think I am.

ATLRoAcH3493d ago

Now I don't know if it just hasn't been updated but I checked the Take 2 site and it lists GTA IV for PS3 and 360 release date as october 2007.

The site could be wrong but check for your self.

Hey, if this is in fact true, it would make plenty of sense if you think about it. For one thing, we never really had an actual idea of how far along each console was with GTAIV. Many came to the conclusion that the 360 was further along because it was the one always shown. But look at it this way. If it is on track for the PS3, it could just maybe be a timed-exclusive. That being said, it would come out in October as planned for the PS3 version, then 360 version would come in the spring along with it's episodic content in a sort of GOTY edition. Something like Oblivion is doing. That would work well for both consoles I guess. I'd hate to own a 360 knowing that I'm not gonna get to play GTA due to MS being pricks. I don't really care for the extra content when knowing that it is just an extension to the GTAIV campaign. GTA campaigns are long enough as is and I couldn't be happier by just completing the original storyline. Welp, I guess we'll have to just wait and see. There have been many rumors for what the big bang announcement could be so I wouldn't get my hopes up though. I actually think it just has to do with the new PS3 SKU.

I think I might just be optimistic, but I'm hoping it's coming back to OCTOBER 2007 for both the PS3 and 360!!!!!!!!!!!!!

on the other hand...

Sony says it's coming October 2007. Microsoft says 2008. Take2 says both are coming October 2007. That's 2/3 for October 2007.

i think is just a mistake form the site but ill approve this

sticky doja3493d ago

You think Rockstar would just pop up outa nowhere "oh yah we are releasing one of the most anticipated titles within the next 30 days" Big mistake on http://uk.playstation.com/p... 's part. Went to rockstars official website, nothing but the old trailer.

ATLRoAcH3493d ago

But the Rockstar site has never shown a release date only trailers and screenshots.Check out Take 2's site you know the ones who announced the delay and you'll notice it says October.

Case solved. Sony Bing Bang Announcement is Grand Theft Auto 4 related

skynidas3493d ago

heyyy just imagine this Sony BIG BANG announcement: Grand Theft Auto 4 exclusive for the PS3 launching this October...HAHAHAHAHA that would be huge!!!!! but i dunno Micros*** already paid rock* for the exclusive episodic content soooooooo...

Vip3r3493d ago

If GTA4 is released this month and turns out to be a PS3 exclusive or timed exclusive it could be the biggest story of the year. Or again it could be a mistake on the site but I certainly hope it isn't.

moscardini73493d ago

but go see check out website

sticky doja3493d ago

Exactly how much money would Sony have to pay rockstar? I would hate to be the one to have to write that check.

ATLRoAcH3493d ago

Sony paid Rockstar more money and Rockstar gave MS their money back?Probably not I'm sure MS made R* sign a lengthy contract but you can never tell about loopholes.I hope Sony has something up its sleeve with Rockstar.

Jinxstar3493d ago (Edited 3493d ago )

@ Atlroach

Sony has stated they have do not buy exclusives. its part of their policy. They buy rights to games and such and companies but wont fork over money to buy a game outright... i believe it was in here a few days ago somewhere.... However companies lie all the time.

For the record though I pray that its true. That R* is there and says DVD9 is not big enough or something. Would make my fu(king year...

Panthers3493d ago

I do remember M$ saying they havent paid Take Two a penny yet(they said this after the delay) so maybe the deal went sour.

ATLRoAcH3493d ago

Yeah I know it was a what if scenario.Sony doesn't want to steep as low as Microsoft I guess.

Jinxstar3493d ago (Edited 3493d ago )

Well from what I understand its their policy not to buy exclusive game rights but flat out buying rockstar... Thats a possibility. Will cost them a pretty penny but if they did.... It will be the end of the console wars... With LA Noire and the other 3 "Undisclosed" PS3 exclusives post GTA. I would say its a possibility that they might just take them under their wing and get it.

Edit: Even if it doesn't get bumped up or anything if it just becomes exclusive... ZOMFG...

sanderFVCKINcohen3493d ago

Where in the world did you guys get EXCLUSIVE from. All it says is a release date, nothing about a damm exclusive. You guys quit twisting SH!T up.

riqued3493d ago

If it's not a mistake and it's related with the "big bang" from sony then GTA IV is an exclusive this year.

But it's probably a mistake =(

CRIMS0N_W0LF3493d ago

even though I belive its false.

Can you imagine if GTA 4 releases in october exclusive to PS3? LOLOLOLOL
