In an interview
with the VP of Product Development at Rockstar, Jeronimo Barrera cited the PS3 as a contributing factor for the delay of Grand Theft Auto IV
. The two console versions are back to being in sync now so things should go pretty smoothly here on out. Not surprising as the console is a different beast to program for but it does confirm the rumor that this was one of the reasons the game was being delayed. Also, the 360 version WON'T require a hard drive so those that still have the core and arcade system can play the game fine.
