Well what i got from some people was mostly rumors so bare with me. well what the people at gamestop told me was that the main reason was that the only people that were being shot were black people. i guess the black community was very mad. so rockstar postponed the game. And now there is a mix of people that can be killed.

hrm, sounds fishy to me

1) I don't believe video game store employees
2) Very little info has been released about GTA IV so I want to know how they knew that the main enemies we're of african descent, and if they made such a big fuss about it how come it wasn't in the news

Will be interesting to find out if this is true or not nontheless. Personally I think the reason behind the delay was it never was scheduled for release in 2007 but take2 needed more investment from stockholders so they told people it was scheduled for fall 2007, then rockstar announced close to the expected release date that it was delayed untill 2008. You notice how the take2 stocks took a hit after the delay was announced, thats just my opinion though and there hasn't been any press release so its hard to tell.

Yeah, I don't know about gamestop employees. One time I went into a local gamestop and asked the clerk if they had a used copy of halo 2. She (not a valid excuse) asked "for what system?" Me and my girlfriend started to laugh, but I apologized because I felt bad for her. Maybe the same girl started the gta iv rumor.

Har Har Har ... Thanks for the laugh! That's a good one Laughing

You really did get me laughing there. Anyway the game would suck if you couldn't kill white people. Think how powerful the Hells Angels would become. Twisted Evil

i dont really care what they do as long as i can go on a homicide spree lol. but yet they changed the game so there so really reason to talk about the gta IV getting banned it was even getting banned the people who publsih the games told them you cant just kill one race which is stupid but if they didnt they were going to take legal action so they changed it you know the corperation of rockstar games have been making some games that are passing the line well for one manhunt 2 is banned in the uk thats pretty bad but funny at the same time.
