GTA IV won't "make or break" PS3

With news that GTA IV has been delayed until next year, Sony have a made a bold statement over the future of their console in regards to this game.
Dave Karraker, the PR guru over at SCEA, has stated how “Naturally, all of the hardware manufacturers would love to have Grand Theft Auto IV released as soon as possible, but this is such an important franchise we support Take-Two in taking as much time as they need to make a great game”
He then went onto say “No single game makes or breaks any PlayStation platform. Rather than rely on one hit game, we prefer to offer consumers a wide choice in software, appealing to a broader audience beyond just the hardcore gamer”, which is a fair statement. The Xbox only really had Halo, and remember how well that did.
Although, 3 GTA games made up the top 5 PS2 games (along with GT3 and MGS 2), so it’s not like they didn’t help make the PS2.
Either way, expect GTA IV's brilliance around spring time next year.

psn id: gingo.... iof course it won't make or break the ps3 because they have 10-12 more games coming out this year to soften the blow on the other hand i tihnk this delay will upset 360 more as they only really have one good exclusive coming this year

They should make it up to us by releasing more trailers. It wouldn't have to spill the beans on anything secret but give us SOMETHING!

GTA didn't "make" the PS2. If they weren't there another awesome game would be. Just because they sold a ton of copies of those 3 games doesn't mean a different game wouldn't have taken its place if GTA wasn't there. I got sick of GTA with San Andreas
