I think you mean they are taught in the first grade.

Course if Rockstar gets bought out by EA, I'd think it's unlikely to happen.
Yeah, just due the fact that there are more Xbox 360s than PS3s makes it likely that more 360 versions have been sold.

what do you expect? MS will try to suck out as much money as they can from the 360, til they make the xbox v2.

It needed saving? I was under the impression it was doing fine.

Haha. I meant the rule itself. That's why I used singular.

Sony exec. Phil Harrison spoke with a number of bloggers on the subject, including IGN, and didn't seem worried:

"I don't think PS3 has the install base to support Rockstar's investment in GTA IV on its own," said Harrison. Reinventing a sandbox-oriented series on next-generation platforms can't be a cheap endeavor, so while PS3 plays catch-up with Microsoft in terms of userbase, Rockstar must unsurprisingly cover its bases and ensure they're reaching the maximum amount of gamers when GTA4 releases this October.

Both versions will be receiving exclusive downloadable content when the game drops in the fall -- could we be seeing future exclusives in this form?

Unless Sony pays them enough to make up for lost sales on other consoles, hence increasing PS3 sales and sales of other PS3 games so possibly Win:Win.

i disagree MS used GTAIV to save the Xbox360... if anything GTAIV may have saved the Xbox360 on its own.

but then saved how? i guess i been living in a hole recently, a hole where the Xbox360 was a failure and a dismissive amongst gamers? probably the same hole they (the industry) find and bury their BS in.

seriously, im not gonna step on the success of GTAIV, its a brilliant game, i love it, im a PS3 player myself. but i fail to see how it 'saved' anything. sure it caused a boom in video game sales, for BOTH consoles, but you cant save something that doesnt actually need saving. Xbox360 was doing fine, Xbox Live user count continues to grow, the console isnt selling at any kind of loss..its like any new epic game that comes out. causes a boom in sales, strengthens/broadens the market, then gradually calms down and dies out...until the next big thing. repeat process.

seriously i would like to find this hole they dig up their BS from. the same place Crytek found their BS "piracy killed Crysus" story. apparently i've been living in it..
