Take-Two: Grand Theft Auto IV Golden

Take-Two Interactive held their annual general meeting in New York today, and we're still waiting to hear if anything happened regarding EA and their continued hostile takeover attempt. But we have learned something that, while expected, helps move the GTAIV launch from the category of "99.9% sure" to "inevitable."

Take-Two's President Strauss Zelnick confirmed today that Grand Theft Auto IV has officially gone gold, and will indeed be ready for the previously announced release date of April 29. (source- GameSpot) So in case you had any concerns about the game suffering a mysterious delay - perhaps due to a successful EA takeover - you no longer have to worry. It's a-comin'; and as Zelnick said, "trucks are rolling next week and there will be a lot of them." Well, yeah, we figured there would be, considering the sheer number of pre-orders and the analyst predictions for total sales. Most say GTAIV will sell 6 million copies in the first few weeks, and we wouldn't be surprised if it sold even more than that.

Grand Theft Auto IV is a mere 11 days away, and there's no turning back now. It's not only the biggest release of 2008, it's the single biggest release of the generation so far, so get ready!

haha, 11 days to go of watching what happens with EA. As long as EA doesn't get their way, I'll be hunting retail stores for an available copy I'm sure. Yeah... I'll buy into the hype!

It has managed a 100 000 pre-order here in Norway so far, which you can compare to like 5 million in U.S. as Norway only have about 4.7 citizens. It will probably break all records when it comes to sales.

any other places getting a midnight release? I'm gonna be at my Gamestop at midnight in Parkplace Plaza Clearwater on the 28th with my preorder, although the line starts at 10, if you already paid for it and have your preorder, it's not like you wont get a copy so what is the point in waiting for 2 hours? oh well.

Hell ya!.. I ordered 2 GTA4 Collector's Editions for myself.. One to of course open and play.. and one to just stare at on the shelf in all its pristine glory.. ^^
On a different note.. I wonder why ALL the pre-orders are sold out.. Lmao Mhahahahahaha

Just messing with ya.. but seriously dude.. (and I HATE to say this:) Wal-mart.com still has pre-orders.. and they are even giving away an f'in sweet T-shirt as a bonus. (Did I mention, I HATE Wal-Mart!) So.. if you missed your chance at the Empire's (Gamestop/EB) pre-orders.. then head on over and check it out. But I would hurry if I were you. Good Luck.. and 6 million sold.. thats gonna be a joke..lol
