    During Take-Two's recent shareholders' meeting, the publisher said that GTA IV has gone gold. GTA IV has entered mass production and is ready to be on store shelves for its release on April 29th. The game is rated M for Mature and will release on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Many experts prognosticate that GTA IV will sell more than 9.5 million units, with 5.8 million units in US alone, during its global opening-week.

    I dont believe for a second that pc gaming is dying - i would put it as 'slow'

    I think the PC games market is already flooded with ideas that have already been taken hence its harder to come up with a game.

    Like what people say about CoD4 - its literally CoD2 but dressed up to look more modern but the engine itself is still the same which means that Infinityward are actually selling the same game to us....

    I think the MMORPG market might get a few nice additions soon or at least im hoping they will but the FPs arena has been saturated Quake, UT, BF2, FEAR, Moha, CoD, CSS, GRAW - etc.

    new games will come out but they will take looonnng.

    personaly i cant wait until a new FPs comes out - getting sick of playing just guildwars & CoD4 all the time & ive already stopped playing stock maps completely on CoD4

    Quoted for the fucking truth.

    It took them 8 months to get San Andreas on the PC after the PS2 release so we'll see how this goes. Really looking forward to it, anyways.

    and even eight months on, you can sometimes feel the awkwardness of the port..
    like, the controls at points..

    We i have both 360 and PS3 but i will more likely just get it for the PS3 (My 360 is not hooked up and am to lazy to hook it up).

    If there is a PC version, by the time that comes out no one would really care anymore. But i don't think PC gaming is dying.

    Yep, one in Terre Haute on North Fruit Ridge. They actually bought another building across the street from it. The current building is being converter to do all Blu-Ray and the second building is going to be their DVD and CD manufacturing facility. I guess they currently can't keep up with the Blu-Ray demand.
