Good to know that we have a Rockstar developer to confirm that for us.

Otherwise I would just go on thinking that Rockstars 360 development units kept dying on them.

See what I did there? I used your fanboi statement, and made one of my own! It is really easy.

My suggestion is this: PS3 sells well, 360 sells well.... competition spawns innovation.

You should be happy they delay the game instead of coming back here and crying because the game was rushed. Regaurdless of what the reason is.

I do think they were having trouble with the PS3 version and GTA IV was one game that Sony couldn't afford to have an inferior version of.

I just have a feeling this delay is to make the best GTA IV possible
on PS3.

In addition it broke up 360's perfect storm of games and pricing plan for the holiday.

You do realize that GTA IV started development on the Playstation 3 platform?

Just some food for thought...add it up about some of the stuff that has leaked through about storage and space, more than just once.

So I assume they have huge numbers of the liquidated model of the PS3? Because once those are gone the price is still the same..

Amplifier4077d ago

You are half-correct, but of course you would omit that the insides of the box are not the same.
