Most of you still remember the fact that GTA IV
was initially scheduled for an October release but, unlike any other Grand Theft Auto game, it got delayed. Until the 29th
of April, as we reported
earlier. And now, Rockstar Games' Vice President of Product Development, Jeronimo Barrera, declared that part of the blame for the delay is the PS3.
In an interview with MTV, Barrera said: ""It's really no surprise to anybody that the PS3 was definitely a contributing factor to that. Now, we're neck and neck. That's not an issue anymore. But back then that was something we were taking into account. That's not to say there's anything wrong with the PS3 version. It's awesome."
Now here's a reason for Xbox 360 fanboys to diss the PS3 fans a little bit more! But this shouldn't happen, since now everything is going as planned and, even more, details regarding the next game in the GTA series keep popping out, to everyone's delight. For a lot of details about the game, check out our previous article
about Grand Theft Auto IV.
And now, the new stuff: we will start with some bad news for all the pervs out there. GTA IV won't have another "Hot Coffe" in it (to read: sex scenes) but, still, dates will be possible, as Barrera said to Mtv: "Yeah, you can go on dates. Obviously it's a mature title and there's human relations. That's a natural thing". With this in mind and the fact that the game can be as violent or non-violent as a gamer wants, this title is, definitely, one that should finally please everybody. Not that there will be many people trying to play it as non-violent as possible, right?
With GTA IV coming soon, we can only hope that what Barrera said about it is true: "I don't see anything being bigger in 2008 in any entertainment.We think it's that big, and we just have to get the word out."
