Wow, this may hurt PS3 a lot since this was one of the marquee titles to compete with the 360's Halo 3.

GTA IV is a cross platform title, it couldn't be any more different than Halo3, a first party exclusive to Xbox.

This is bad news across the board. This is a bad day for Gamers. I have to admit I was sketched out by the relative quiet coming from Rockstar on this game lately. 2 ok trailers and a few wimpy screenshots is all we've seen, and its been silent for weeks. a 6 month delay. Wow.

Which is why it's smart to have your own in house studies doing your AAA releases, you don't get screwed by 3P vendors when you need them most.

Well, they say its for development, but others are saying that some green spartan might have something to do with this...

my opinion is they delayed it for a number of reasons, one possible reason, is not enough time for the online portion of the game. and two the ps3 version was never ready. in psm magazine they showed images from the 360 version, since that was the original platform being developed, hence table tennis using the rage engine. so rockstar delayed it untill 08 so they can release it together on the ps3 and 360. it wouldnt make sense to release it on 360 and six months later on ps3, that would hurt taketwo in sales, also this further builds up the hype machine. Look at manhunt 2 nintendo and sony refused to have it on their system lol. anyway their are a number of great games coming on all platforms from sept- nextyear.

This sucks. Although, if it's not ready, I wouldn't want it released. I want this game to be incredible.
