A Christmas without GTA IV

If you haven't heard yet, Grand Theft Auto IV, one of 2007's most anticipated titles has been delayed in a big way--Rockstar has revealed that the game will be shipping in the second quarter of 2008.

What does the GTA delay mean for the holiday season pack? handicap the console war in light of this major shakeup. Who wins and who loses for this delay?

you have just found him! lol nice to meet you!

:( Halo 3 is all that will keep me warm now this winter.

(no 360 heat jokes)

I'd say playstation far more than xbox, mainly because xbox has a very strong line up this coming holiday with mass effect, halo, Bioshock. As well as the cheaper price will probably contribute to better sales.

Sure playstation has a good line up, I just think the xbox is better for now. Next year will be a different story...

P.S. before you say I'm a fanboy I have a PS3 and this is one of the games I was looking forward to most

...not the variety of games the PS3 has/will have. And before the people here say I am a PS3 fanboy, check out the image below. I love my X360 but i think in the long run the PS3 will have more and different games.

@ topic:
it's quite sad that gta iv has been delayed but i think i can wait. better late release than a early buggy release.

I totally agree with you FuRy. I own both systems, and for me, the PS3 has more diversity in games.

I love them both, but the 360, i only own for shooters. That's my personal taste. I think everyone who is into PC-gaming will enjoy the 360 more than i do.

If you own a PS2, then you will probably purchase a PS3, because of game franchises like Ratchet & Clank, God of War, Gran Turismo, Metal Gear Solid and so on. You won't find these type of games on the 360, that's for sure.

The Wii? Not for Mii!

Yeah...haha...the Wii also not for Mii!
I had a Wii a few months ago, but i didn't see a reason to keep it (no games etc.), so it went to ebay. But i think I'll be sure to buy one again as soon games like Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Brothers etc. are released. That are must-have-titles for me.

I don't believe that GTA 4 is coming out fall of 2008

GTA games are crap anyway, only reason i bought San andreas iz coz my friends bought it. all i did was go around killing opeople.

I think GTAIV wil not sell as well as San anddreas or other, this friend fried thing wont be there anymore
