I would say that isn't true and probably just a guess or estimate on their part. There is no way the strategy guide would be coming out this early if the game is out spring next year.
Now I seem to remember reading the delay was down to getting the 360 version ready. Perhaps the PS3 version is ready to roll?An early release simply isn't going to happen. A friend of mine works for R*, and he's told me that they've got everyone doing 12 hour shifts with no leave except Xmas in order to get this game ready for the April release... There's still a fair bit of work to do on it!
It doesn't matter whether one of them is already done or not as Take 2/Rockstar have a contractual agreement with both MS and Sony to release both versions at the same time. I suspect that they are having issues with both versions as it's been widely stated that both versions still need a lot of work. Spring next year is a more likely release time frame.Now I seem to remember reading the delay was down to getting the 360 version ready. Perhaps the PS3 version is ready to roll?
I very much doubt that is the case. As far as the power of the PS3 being superior it has been discussed to death suffice it to say there is no concrete evidence to prove one is more powerful then the other. Anyway that's not something that should be discussed here so back on topic.i heard that its M$ delaying it because they didnt like the ps3 version being better so they want it all the same so ps3 version is having the extra stuff been stripped and graphics being put down all because xbox cant take the superior power of the playstation
I suppose that all depends on which side of the river your looking from - over on the xbox forums they blame the ps3 with it being hard to program for, while over here we blame the xbox for not having a hard drive. I doubt someone from r* would make an official announcement about one console being blamed for the delay as that would cause that company (m$ or sony) to take action for bad mouthing their machine with such a high profile game.Don't think it was ever confirmed which system caused the delay, someone from R* made a comment that the 360 version was holding back the game with not having a hdd as standard, so i think everyone came to the conclusion that it was microsofts system that was to blame, but that could be taken as they could'nt put what they wanted into the game and not it was actually holding back the development of the title. All ways thought there was something odd about the whole delay, i mean it as announced back in august that it was to be delayed, we're now looking at an april release, thats nearly an 8 month delay and if as Winstano's friend says they are working round the clock to get the title ready, well that seems to be a hell of alot of work to do on the game, so how were R* so far off with their estimate for release? Perhaps your friend Winstano could shed some light on the real reason for delay
rockstar should have just said 'sod it, you want the game, stop being a cheapskate and get a hard drive'It won't be out early. Twas the 360 Core system that's held it back. The only difference between the versions is the downloadable content.
The above 3 statements are facts.
Do you have any hard evidence to back up these facts, particularly the one about the Core being the reason for the holdup?It won't be out early. Twas the 360 Core system that's held it back. The only difference between the versions is the downloadable content.
