And with people budgeting for the new systems. The younger gamers will be holding out for Christmas, and they'll very likely blow their XMas wad on the new system.

I don't know. It won't affect me, but I feel like it'll definitely affect the overall numbers. And god forbid that September date slips a month.

And mostly it seems odd to me that Rockstar wouldn't have developed this for the new hardware. I'm sure they were given the stuff to work with. And I'm surprised Sony/Microsoft didn't push Rockstar to make this a co-op release, because that would have been a perfect storm of sales.
