Halo 3 To Possibly Cause GTA IV Delay?

Quote:
We all know that Halo 3’s release later this year will reach monumental sales and will cause many a blue and white collar worker to suddenly be “sick”, but will it actually cause another AAA title to be delayed? According to analyst Michael Pachter, it actually may.

As of now, Halo 3 is set to be released on September 25, while GTA IV has a release date of October 16.

“We believe that a two-week delay would provide a reasonable gap between the launch of Halo 3 and the launch of GTA IV, and would actually help sales of both 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.”

I personally don’t think Take-Two should allow the Halo 3 launch to influence it’s launch of GTA IV. I mean, we all know the majority of Xbox 360 owners will pick up Halo 3, but what about the PS3 owners or the 360 owners who don’t eat/sleep/breath Halo? I know I would want to get my hands on GTA IV as soon as possible and hope Take Two knows the sooner they get GTA IV out, the happier we’ll all be.

What do you think? Could it be just tactical move from R*? Discuss.

WTF? I would suggest you refrain from such ignorant posts in the future.

I doubt it is the reason. The reason is clearly that they got some problemes with the PS3 and that format they use to that system(Blu-ray), and of course they must release the game at the same time on both consoles and that`s why both 360 owners and of course the PS3 owners have to wait for the game to be finished on both consoles. It can be the 360 also, but it is more likely a problem with the PS3 edition and not the 360 since they are more known with that format.

Hey Slim, close this thread. This is about the same as the one I posted. Just looks like any anti-microsoft thread will stay up, yet one that may point the finger to the PS3 gets closed. I'm not bashing any console here, It just seems that way to me.

I highly doubt Halo 3 has anything to do with the delay, the GTA series is popular enough to hold its own through a competitive release.
