T2: No Set Release Date For GTA IV

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 04:13 PM MDT | By ash_735
Strauss Zelnick, chairman of Take2, has said that they won't give a final date of the release of Grand Theft Auto IV until he's "utterly convinced" that the game is finished. Speaking at a conference, he went on to say...
"It's a fair question given that we weren't able to stick to our firm date the last time. We're going to give a firm date when we are utterly convinced that we have it and that isn't right now; we know it's highly anticipated. Right now our view is to put out a high quality title and we're not in the business of disappointing investors."

He also commented on the company’s views about missing the Christmas sales time for this year...
"I think most people see it as okay – hardware penetration is going to grow over Christmas and because this is a must-have title it's probably okay that we're not selling it in the Christmas season,"

He went on to mention the Downloadable Content for the 360 version too...
"It actually isn't really significant in terms of its contribution in 2008, it's something we ought to be doing and my guess is that's where the industry is going. If you believe over time that package goods will be supplemented very much with online downloadable content, and you believe as I do that the future of playing interactive entertainment is networked multiplayer, then there's every reason to believe that downloadable content makes all kinds of sense. And eventually if you have a packaged good and you sell upgrades it's a pretty terrific business model for everyone. I think it could be really interesting, but to be clear, it's not in our plans and we're not relying on it for our success,"

I'm a bit pissed off by the announcement that they are not planning on making extra content for the 360 version. One of the reasons I bought my 360 was the Downloadale Content...
