So far Rockstar has been very vague as to the release date of CW. The latest word is that it will be anytime from early November to late January. I already have it pre-ordered so I'll get it when I get it. I'll be monitoring the chatter for a more concrete date. Those of you like myself who are interested in GTA CW can do the same. This thread will serve as an update forum.

Also in order to generate more interest for Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars, which is based on the GTAIV incarnation, members should monitor the net for the best deals on the consoles themselves. This seems to be the biggest obstacle for some in regards to getting CW. For the last year and a half new units have consistently stayed around $129 before tax and S&H. Used and Refurb units may be a different story. This thread can also serve as scouting forum for up to date deals on units and the game itself or requests for the latest and best prices for both.

It should be obvious that I want to drum up as much support for CW as I can. Going so far as actually helping posters buy DS handhelds.

DS is still about 135 over here which is about $179 and considering the economics crisis and the amount of good games coming out I wish thee good luck getting people to buy one.

Here is a used/refurb unit offer from EBGames.com that's just over $100. It's only for US addresses though. But this is the kind of thing I'm talking about. I'm sure better deals will come along by the time GTA CW ships.

DS Lite Used/Refurb

There is of course eBay and other auction sites.

Exactly, how many (active) people on the forum live in the US?

I've been thinking about getting one though, even before CW was announced but the price's still too high for something I actually already have. (PSP) Plus the graphics would be a huge step down from the previously mentioned as well as the game quality. I'm not a big fan of Mario or Brain Age so what's left besides Barbie's Horse Adventure 6: Way to the Rainbow?

Here's a list of games. Lots of Sparkle Syphilis Princess 8 games yes, but many games that aren't for fans of kiddie games.

Amazon has DS lite units for $119.98. That about as cheap as new units get. Here's the link.

I have just received an update about the release of Chinatown Wars:

"We now have delivery date(s) for the order you placed on October ?? ???? ??:?? PDT (Order# noneofyourbusiness):

"Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars" [Video Game]
Estimated arrival date: 02/06/2009"


By "winter" it appears they mean late winter.

Taken care of. That is the second time in as many days that this so-called "Guest" has posted SPAM in this thread. I will bring it to Lucas' attention.

Now back on topic....
