    Good call by them. This game's going to be really popular for a lot of people, and might be just the thing to push some people to take the PS3 plunge.

    i think in the US it will be priced less. more than likely $500 which isnt bad for a $400 system, 50$ controller and $60 game.

    I like GTA, but no way yet to the PS3. I want PC games.

    I would jsut wait for the MGS4 bundle if your into that game, you get a dualshock controller and stuff, its will also be $500 because that is what the MGS4 bundle is priced at

    The $400 PS3 already comes with a controller. You might as well buy the console and the game separately to save $40.

    Nah, North America is not getting that GTA4 bundle (only for Europe and Australia). We are getting the MGS4 bundle though.

    Btw, have you guys seen the leaked GTA4 gameplay?

    Leaked gameplay doesn't surprise me as the 360 version has been released in certain places for a while now ;)

    All the 360 vids are from a pirated copy. Seems like guys from France and Austrialia got a legitimate PS3 copy.

    BTW, here is a live feed. No spoilers, the guy is just messing around...

    yeah, I'm pretty sure they stopped making the 80GB. I know Wal Mart and Meijer doesn't sell them anymore.

    The 80gb is temporarily discontinued, until the MGS4 bundle comes out.
