Hmmm i think DLC will come next year
But maybe they release it till Christmas to get some money.

Btw. neok the reason why they release the game later is definitively not Windows Live (they release it later to sell the game better when most good games were released)

We will see 3 Weeks left

actually the reason most likely is Windows LIVE.

Microsoft has stated multiple times over the last 4-5 months that with the New XBox Experience Windows was also getting a Games For Windows LIVE marketplace and stand alone client because right now LIVE is built into the games.

This client and marketplace is coming with GTA IV. Most likely it was not done in time for the release date of the 18th. And if GTA IV is built to work with the new client only (as in no LIVE built in) then the game would not have any multiplayer when it launched on the 18th. bit problem there.

So that is most likely the reason. The new live update will come sometime before the 2nd and then GTA IV will come out as the first game to use the new client as we've known for 4-5 months.

Sure but they can release game without that features (like xbox)
And make patch after release

If they told it is Microsoft's fault it's just slim excuse , and to release the game later is in all sight points better reason to do it.
I am working in marketing section and i know how it is

a game as big as GTA IV released without one of it's biggest selling points would be disaster.

What do you think would of happened if the console versions shipped without multiplayer and R* just said. oh yea thats coming later.

there would be an outrage. PC is the same thing. And i know people working on the Games For Windows LIVE client and they've told me flat out that they didn't finish it and couldn't finish it by the 18th.

Because the only reason for the delay was for the fall update for Games For Windows LIVE which was delayed. The first part of the update came yesterday. 2nd part will come with GTA on the 2nd. I have a friend who works in that division and told me flat out thats why it was delayed because the update is suppose to ship with GTA IV and they didn't finish it in time.
