A fiscal year is a 12-month period used for calculating annual statements for a business. All budgets are worked out annually, so "this year we will spend $xxx on this and $xxx on that". Every company has to make its financial statements and budgets and intentions public, which is exactly what the Investor Relations site is for. The fiscal year is just when that company decides to have these budgets and statements starting and finishing from.

Here, Rockstar have decided that GTA IV won't be launched in fiscal year 2007, it will be launched in fiscal year 2008 instead. Rockstar decided to start their fiscal year every 31st October.

EDIT:
They have said GTA IV will be released in the "second quarter of fiscal year 2008" which means February, March or April.

no, it's for both the 360 version and the PS3 version -

Take-Two is reducing its fiscal 2007 guidance primarily to reflect the movement of the launch of Grand Theft Auto IV for the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from the fourth quarter of fiscal 2007 to fiscal 2008, due to additional development time required to complete the title.

What a bummer. But at least with the delay, I can make sure that I have enough money for it.

Yeah, I'm new here. Don't piss me off and we'll be fine. :D

Aw, my first post. You may call it "arrogant". I prefer "foreshadowing".

The info about the confrence call is rather usless. You have to be a share holder or someone finacially involved. I called to find out.

I would prefer that it was delayed and became a great game then released in October and full of bugs and glitches.

A bit like VCS was. I think R* learnt from that, and i for one am glad that they're taking the time to polish the game up ready for release. It's gonna be awesome for sure, and may boost sales, because it's 'dodging' the Halo release a bit. Though thety may not amke the christams sales, there will be more anticipation, and so more people will buy IMO.

Well, VCS deserves to be known as a high quality game. I loved its graphics and features. Not too many glitches either. I wouldn't be surprised if GTA4 was even better because of this delay.

Are you fucking kidding me mate? VCS had more glitches thatn any other GTA game to date. The graphics coulda been better aswell, considering those showcased on some other PSP titles. /rant.

So yeah, it'll undoubtedlty be better for this delay. Both game - wise and marketing-wise, IMO...

We knew this would happen eventually but I didn't expect its delay to be announced months before the original release date and I never expected it to be delayed 4-6 months.

I'm actually quite happy about this. I'm kind of use to waiting..

Of course, i still have to wait of a pc version if it is going to come out.
