hype will keep the prices up for about a year... i mean gta san andreas is £15 now so its not like your going to save much buying it now rather than 1 year or later...
#2
They reduce it when sales fall off - so you are looking at about 6 months minimum before it leaves the charts.

Remember £50 is RRP but shop around and get a pre-order for £35. It isn't going to get much less than that any time soon.

This will be the first 3rd Gen release for a GTA title, I wouldn't be surprised if it will be like trying to get a Wii for a while, even for a 18 rated game, lmao, the kids gotta 'ave it!!!
#4
yeah its gonna take a long time for the game to drop outta the charts and with this being THE biggest title of the yr and not many others even coming close its gonna b some time.
#5
I think it'll match COD4, prices are still high. I just hope it doesn't do a forza 2, I want it to hold it's value so I can sell it on when I get bored.

Thats PS3, nah the Xbox 360 version of GTA IV has the exclusive content MS paid 15 million for in 2 episodes and its touted that each episode will be on the San Andreas Scale.

And because MGS4 is PS3 only means it doesn't count? I think MGS4 will outsell GTA4 on the PS3. Although GTA4 will have the bigger combined sales.

What do you mean by 'San Andreas Scale' ?

Oh and it was $50mil.

No it doesn't count, the combined sales of all formats of GTV IV will be massive in comparision to MGS4, really.

Scale as in size of map and missions.

They only bought it because they knew people who hadn't gone next gen would buy a PS3 to play it because it was a sony exclusive.

Why doesnt MGS count?

I'll believe it when i see it. My guess would be that this episodic content will just feature new missions.. maybe a new character on the same liberty city island, considering that it is coming out in autumn i would guess they wont have time to make new cities or anything major. Its a bummer that its exclusive but considering GTA IV is expecting to have over 100 hours of gameplay (singleplayer) im not sure how many people will finish the main game let alone addons.

Do you think so?

I was just gonna run into Game on release day with some games to trade in. Do you think I should just pay with cash and pre-order instead?
#22
If you pre-order you get MS points on xbox.. so might be worth it.

When i was working at Whsmith when san-andreas came out we had people coming in all day saying it was sold out everywhere

Firstly, you don't sound old enough to play the game.
Secondly, I'm a bit skeptical about this. I doubt that they'd expand the map in the DLC. The only way I see the DLC taking shape is more missions. But after reading an exert from an interview with Dan Houser said something along the lines of the story's been told, what's left to tell. It's making me think it's just meaningless missions.
#25
there aint gonna b many games to come close to gta IV in either format

cod4 and fable 2 come to mind for the 360

MGS 4 for ps3. Haze looks pretty promising but im not going to hype it up cause it could be hit or miss.

Analysts on a video i was wathing were guessing that GTA will ship 10 million units or so (i will check later) asassins creed did 7million or somehting. Theses games are all limited by the PS3 and xbox's userbase which is relatively small compared to other systems
#27
I' guessing that gta IV has had 'that' many pre-orders that enough copies will be shipped to each country to avoid sell-outs everywhere.

I think most game stores are gonna open at midnight on the release that sorta tells you what its gonna be like :roll:
I'm gonna be pre-ordering it - I don't wanna be left out for a few months. I think Amazon are still doing it for £35 on the PS3 :thumbsup:

Im pre-ordering the special edition, theres something about all the freebies, although most of its tat

lol, yeah you're right I'm so not old enough to play this game, only been playing Counterstrike for 10 years....:whistling:

Did you read the full story its from MS itself http://www.thebitbag.com/2008/02/21/microsoft-blogger-breakfast-bullets/

But in the end I will be right and you can bring this thread up in Q4 of this year.

Er and a keychain, CD, "deposit box for keys" and a bag is worth it? I think its all **** you can get from £1 Land but they've just stuck the GTA logo on it

Yeah, still not feeling that maturity vibe.

I'd love to see episodic content of those proportions. Just I think it's a tad ambitious on Microsoft's behalf. After all, they can say to there hearts content what they want the DLC to be, they aren't the ones making it.

By the way, I've had my copy of GTA4 pre-ordered for close to a year on the 360. In case you think I'm being defensive for the PS3 :p

Now you're just nit picking.

at the end of the day, the quote "it will be on the same scale as vice city" can be interpretted in many ways, i think its microsoft turning on the hype machine.

This is MS talking on behalf of Rockstar and $50 million (I stand corrected!) is enough for them to be contractly obligated to deliver especially if EA are biting at their heels to take over R*, and when have they not delivered an excellent GTA game?

"It will be bigger than a lot of people think. GTA3 Vice City and San Andreas were basically expansions of GTA3. Think of the DLC that way. We are talking major expansion for GTAIV
No price has been discussed yet. It’s up to Rockstar on whether or not they will charge for it."
