    That's good. I intend to buy a PS3 in May, so this will fit into my timeline perfectly. I can get two games when I buy it (This and Ratchet and Clank).

    Funny but also found on joystiq.com Rockstar admits that the PS3 was the "contributing factor" to the GTA 4 delay

    PS3 was the blame for the delay, kinda funny

    I only liked the original GTA and Vice City. I wonder what I'll think of 4.

    As games becomes a lot more complex and game worlds get bigger, and developers get more comfortable with the PS3's architecture, the same will be said in reverse, that is, in compensating for fitting huge, highly-detailed worlds into a DVD. GTA4 was bordering on it, but I think Rockstar Figured out a way to do it.

    Honestly, no matter how pretty this game is, I will miss CJ and the world of San Adreas.

    Well, I'm looking forward to it. I loved GTA 3, Vice City, and Vice City storys. One of the main things I like about them though are the soundtracks. Something about driving around a GTA cityscape to good tunes is just fun to me. Has anyone heard about soundtrack details yet? I hope they at least have one 80's station... Anyways, hated San Andraes's soundtrack, and furthermore found it overall less fun then the previous two- I think they added too many things that were really not pertanant to making it a "fun" game.

    I hope for more great Talk Radio.. Or at least some good rock stations.

    I too hated GTA: SA's rap soundtrack. Hate rap. Did love the talk radio.

    I love all the games since GTA III. Only thing is, I need to buy a next-gen system. I want to buy a PS3 to play this.

    I LOVED the original GTA, and the London Add-on. GTA2 was fantastic too. Loved GTA 3 and Vice City. San Andreas was in my personal opinion, the weakest story-wise. But I'm just not a fan of the "Hip-Hop Thugz 4 life" crap.

    GTA3 had the best talk radio, and Vice City had the best Soundtrack.

    Well I don't have either system so I'm going to get No More heroes when I get some $$$.

    As for the GTA series, I have them all and Vice City was my favorite. it was the perfect size, not big and not small, you didn't have to RPG like SA, and the radio was excellent.

    No more heroes is awesome BTW


    GTA4 will sell millions but I probably won't get it for a little while after it comes out because I have to save money for BotCon and such lol
