Take-Two is considering pushing the GTA4 launch BACK so it doesn't have to compete with the Halo3 sales machine. Face it, hate it or love it, Halo3 will sell a gazillion units.

This is NOT written in stone BTW.

Well I sure hope they don't; They will get sales either way. As long as the game kicks *** I won't complain.

I won't care if it gets pushed back. I'll buy Halo before GTA anyways.

Don't care for either game honestly.

Can't wait for Mass Effect and Bioshock.

Flashed firmware?

Is your box banned from live due to it? Mine was....found a cheap one online though, so now I have the best of both worlds.

Don't see why they would do that. Two different games appealing to two different types of players.

I don't care that much for GTA anyway. Same old ****. I can't get into those sandbox games.

In addition, a delay of the 'normal' SKU for GTA IV by two or three weeks could allow Take-Two to maximize revenues from the $89.99 Collector's Edition of the game by shipping that SKU on October 17, and to increase overall profitability."So let me get this straight, not only is Grand Theft Auto IV supposed to move the date it set in stone over a year ago at E3 2006, but the normal $60 SKU will be pushed back 2-3 weeks of their original release date so Rockstar can milk their $90 collector's edition? Because of Halo 3 coming out a couple weeks before it?

:lol:

Michael Pachter amuses me monthly when he's always way off predicting the NPD sales chart, but this is hilarious. If Rockstar delays the game, it'll be because they need a little more time due to it being multiplatform, not because of some threat of a game that isn't even in the same genre.

:evil: Not sure "Anti" would be the word for it but there are plenty of people out there that think the game is greatly overrated.

These games would not be in direct competition. This doesn't make sense. A lot of people will probably buy both anyway.

but you have to see that asking consumers to spend $120 in two must have games (according to hype) is alot.

There must be another reason, like the game not being finshed.
