Drat. :-( Well, more time to work on the backlog, I guess.

To be fair rockstar is one of the few games companies I beleive want you to enjoy there game (as well as making money) by making polished and complete games. So while it is a while away i will trust them when they say it will be worth it


This. They're one of the few companies that can delay a game and not make me nervous. Other than GTA 4, which I personally didn't like very much, they've proven that delays aren't a sign of major flaws.

So does this news essentially guarantee backwards compatibility?

Happy with the delay. Also, if even a new xbox comes out... there will be a port.

Always O.G.

The delay probably has nothing to do with the game not being finished or near finished. I am pretty sure they are pretty much done with most of it, and will spend the rest of the months bug testing and fixing things. I think the delay has more to do with the new consoles coming out towards the end of the year. I don't think they're gonna simply just 'port' it as others are assuming, but they're probably having to back through and make sure it will be backwards compatible for the new systems (if they allow it that is) all is just speculation. That's all anyone can do, stop making assumptions.

Way too close to the release of the new Xbox. Shame shame Rockstar.

The April 2011 PSN Break-In is proof that fanboys will forgive anything.

If you can find a list of all of Take Two's releases this cycle on 360/PS3, that is almost the exact same list of all of Take Two's 360/PS3 delayed games. Excluding sports like NBA2K.

MCLA, delayed. RDR, delayed. LA Noire, delayed several times. Max 3, delayed several times. GTAIV, delayed. GTAV, delayed. Bioshock 2, delayed. XCOM (2K Marin), delayed. Bioshock Infinite, delayed twice. Etc. Seems presumptious to think this delay is different to all of those.

10 bucks says the next xbox isn't out this year.

Could care less = you do care, at least a little.

Aww, this topic depressed me. I was looking forward to playing GTAV over the spring/summer.

Guess i'll have to go outside and have "real" fun...running over real hookers in my real car :-/

There's a natural law of gaming that prevents an awesome new title to keep you busy during summer months.
