GTA IV Delayed Until 2008
According to Gamespot 'Grand Theft Auto IV' will not be coming out in October but has instead been delayed until sometime next year. Right now it's listed as 1st quarter 2008.
Speculation is all over the place. Some say the game just isn't done yet. Others say the Xbox 360 version is on date but the Playstation 3 version is taking longer. Since the developer signed a contract with Sony that they couldn't release the Xbox version sooner than the PS3 version then if there is a delay then both versions will have to wait.
Personally I don't care as long as the game itself is worth it. I'd rather they take the extra time to make sure the game is up to par. If a 'GTA' game comes out and is not good or has many bugs in it then the entire franchise may be hurt. Do I want to play the game sooner than later? Absolutely! But I also want the game to be as close to perfect as it can be.
