Wow. This year is getting emptier already. I didn't expect this, but the game did look like it needed polish.

So I guess that means that the DLC for the 360 version that was scheduled for Q2 2008 will probably get pushed back, no? Money wasted, holiday season missed :P

WOW, that was a biggie. No more, HALO3, GTAIV, and Madden 08 in the same holiday season. Now I hope that many of those publishers that delayed 360 games or or timed ps3 exclusives release this holiday season.

Maybe rockstar thought halo3 would hurt some of its sales.

Now, drop the f****** price MS ... I'm glad this has happened (sorry for the fans though!), bring out your back up guns now MS if you've got any! Halo 3 alone isnt going tobe enough anymore!

Wow.

I guess ME, Bioshock, HS and AC will have a chance for some exposure now.

The fans have spoken. Concerning the graphics of the Halo 3 Beta: "There's so many little effects and things going on that make this game pretty much 2nd only to Gears at the moment."

I was interested the most in this GTA more than any other, having only rented GTA3 once. I'm sorry for MS's big 3 for the Holiday... Halo3, Madden, GTA4.

But it will help prop up sales of Bioshock, Assasins Creed, Halo3, COD4, Mass Effect and others... hopefully. I think it will. The holiday was already too crowded.

Yup.. between console releases, PC releases, and new hardware.. I have plenty to spend money on this winter. Could be a blessing in disguise.

Dont be sorry i'm sure it will sell even more next year, were it will be top dog, plus the 360 will be even cheaper if the rumors of more cuts to come are correct.

not fun of this game. but the holiday season was so packed it would be impossible to archieve the same success as the previous one.

imo this game will not have the same glory as its previous games......the market has changed

Damn if GTAIV only came out this year it would just add to the crazyness which I like. There would be still competition and many mags and websites would all complain of what gets the crown of GOTY.

I'd knock a couple of million off of potential sales simply because it's going to miss the holiday.

:( I know there is a lot of games coming out this year but I was definitely getting this.

Reality of cross-platform development and having over an extra year headstart on one of those platforms by the looks of it.

This seriously cereally theriozzilly weakens Playstation 3's already underwhelming holiday lineup.

*goes to Gamestop*

Clerk: You're looking for some video games?

Me: We're all looking for that special one. I need to know what happened to it, give me that!

Clerk: GTA4 was delayed.

Me: For 10 months, I've been waiting. I gave you this money! A guarantee that you would have this game!

Lady In store: Please, no more killing!

Clerk: You want my word? Fine you got my word!

*clenches fist*

Security Guard: Don't do anything stupid Phaethon!

Me: I'm the one, who pre-ordered first. I'm the one, who survived!

*cell phone rings*

Rockstar Guy: Do this for me, and then we'll talk about the release date.

    KORNdog not to say it looks bad, it doesn't. it just doesn't look as nice as REmake 2 to me. (1 Hour ago)

  • KORNdog

    KORNdog @Seth: the enviroments look a lot more empty. i don't know if it's because of the emphasis on racoon streets or what. but it just doesn't look as polished. lip syncing and facial capture looks off too (1 Hour ago)

  • MrWhite

    MrWhite @Seth: Yeah, looks on par to me. Probably even better if I'm honest. (8 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth what i find a bit disappointing is Resistance MP (legit look terrible) replacing Mercenaries mode. (12 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth looks as good as RE2 in motion. What is rushed about? I could bet RE3 is going to be one of the most polished AAA games this year. (13 Hours ago)

  • nostradamus

    nostradamus it looks really good... enough. production/budget wise. it was even more cheap on the first screens, but its quite nice in motion, because they nailed the Resi3:Nemesis look/art perfectly. (14 Hours ago)
