    It's not something that bothers me as I'm not a fan of the series. But I know a lot of people are dissapointed..

        There are loads of conflicting stories:

        From IGN:

        An interview with the UK's Official PlayStation Magazine reveals that Rockstar's creative VP Dan Houser believes the 360 is impairing the development of Grand Theft Auto IV. According to the magazine's online partner, Computer and Videogames, Houser says the lack of a guaranteed hard drive and the smaller storage space of the DVD format is limiting the game's progress. In contrast, all PS3s have a built-in hard drive and the console's Blu-Ray format can hold about five times as much content as DVD
        He also went on to say "but we're facing different problems and chalenges on each platform".

        Personally I suspect it wasn't ready for both systems, perhaps they got a little complacent? There are some awesome looking games out there so they have stiff competition, and maybe it just didn't quite cut it.

            Yeah I never thought about that before. Some people have a harddrive-less xbox 360, which is insaine.

              Anything's possible. Back in the early 90s there was no chance for any violent games on any Nintendo system, and then came along Mortal Kombat (heavily edited, of course.)

                I'm not counting on it coming to the Wii at all, but it'd still be cool

                  Does anyone actually know anyone who has a core 360?

                  seriously, a hard drive-less 360 was the worst idea by anyone, ever.

                    I don't know anyone that has a core 360 myself, no. And yes I agree, its stupid to sell it without a hard drive. Makes things harder for developers probably unless people with cores use memory cards/units instead.

                    I myself think the whole core package is jsut stupid. Wired controllers are old news now. Blue tooth is accurate and its just the job of having batteries which isnt a big deal if you get the play and charge kit and even dumber, the no hard drive part.

                      With the new prices at Gamestop ($279.99 for core, $349.99 for pro), there is a $10.00 difference between the core with two 64 MB memory cards and the pro with its hard drive. Plus without the hard drive, you don't have backwards compatibility.

                      I would guess that the only people who bought only the core edition are those who have the XBOX360 as their first console ever. Especially since Halo 3: Legendary Edition is the most pre-ordered game at this time and its $129.99. That shows that many XBOX360 owners pay big bucks for their toys.

                        Ah. I still think hard-drive less console is a very bad idea for next-gen.

                            I think the real reason, or at least a very important reason for the push back is the influx of games coming out by the end of this year.

                            Guess they're scared people might overlook GTA, or spend too much on other games to be able to afford GTA.

                            Either way, wise move for everyone involved.

                              I think they should stop making violent films and games as when I was young they had them but it was very hard to hire them but now anyone can go in a shop and hire the 18 rated videos and we wonder why there are all these murders in our world its because some people get brain washed from silly films and games.

                              I do watch them myself but I know there only films and games but someone younger like 10-17 would take it all in and could turn into a murder.

                              But with all these money hungry fat cats that make the movies and games I surpose they will never stop making them

                                Things like this make me speachless, do you know that since the video game industry has exsisted violent crimes caused by teens has gone down?
