E3 06: GTA IV confirmed for PS3

Rockstar has announced that GTA IV will be released for PS3 in Europe on October 19, 2007 - the same day as the Xbox 360 version.

The news comes shortly after Microsoft announced at its pre-E3 press conference earlier yesterday that the "fourth installment in the insanely lucrative series would be appearing on its next-gen machine."

With no word at the time of the Microsoft bombshell of a PS3 version, the Sony faithful feared that GTA may have moved exclusively into Gates' hood, so its confirmed existence for the PS2 successor will come as welcome news indeed.
