Grand Theft Auto games are incredibly popular in India, and we can back that up just by looking at our visitor statistics, with the country now ranked 4th in the world. Easy to see why when you realise just how cheap games are in India - GTA IV was going to set a record as the cheapest price worldwide for a AAA title:
it would be insensitive (not to mention, asking for trouble) if the game is put on shelves less than a week after what is one of the worst terrorist incidents India has ever seen.
Let's hope the game does eventually get released in India so the fans don't remain game-less for too long.
this couldn't have come at a worse time for e-Xpress, considering the fact that the Indian launch of GTA IV PC is a spectacular record, marking the first time in the history of Indian game sales that a brand-new AAA title will be available for the cheapest price worldwide, selling for a scant INR 499, when the usual going rate for a new title averages between INR 999 (~ US $20) and INR 1299 (~ US $26).
Thanks to GTA4.net for the heads up.
