Look, we knew it was coming. Retailers, especially big retailers like Harvey Norman, don't muck around with these kind of things. But it's nice to know that we've now got new pictures of the GTA IV/PlayStation 3 bundle, as well as an officially-endorsed recommended retail price. It'll go for $749.95 but while the game's due on April 29, this bundle won't be ready until May 1. Can you stand the wait, Australia?
