GTA 4 To Impact Hollywood?

One of our favorite uses for all this hardware, gaming, is starting to generate titles large enough to effect other parts of the entertainment industry.  No longer are A-list games only competing with each other for sales, but now it seems that the latest movie releases are being factored into the equation.  Of course, whatever effects the studios also has an impact on their bottom line:

"We anticipate the video game release of GTA IV on April 29 could dampen the potential from Iron Man’s theatrical release on May 2," (Janco Partners analyst Mike) Hickey said in a Wednesday note regarding Marvel Entertainment stock.

 That's a very valid claim though...Some people will stay in to play GTA4 and will catch the movie at a later time...It'll effect the opening box office results =P. I'm just glad to see people are taking gaming seriously now-a-days in terms of following  ^_^...Go gamers! =P

I can't wait either, although my parents don't really allow me playing GTA, since I played all of them in the past and finished them it's just my parents don't like the type of violence that is going on in there. It is a lot of fun though. I remember they came out with a movie called Silent Hill for the game Silent Hill. That movie is one of my favorites. :) it's just amazing.

Heh, I remember when I was younger and had my mom take me to eb games.  GTA2 had just came out and the guy at the counter says to her "You know this game is rated M for etc."  He named ev erything you do in the game and I wanted to scream at him, however my mom bought it anyway.  But every other gta she never had a conflict buying for me.  But I'm much older in comparison to then and so I buy my own games, or christmas or birthday would be an exception but she never really minded, so long as I wasn't throwing down the slurs and being a violent person and what not.
