Wow, I was really hoping to try this out. Haven't played GTA before, and I don't really feel like putting up $4.99.

Not to be a downer but I hope rockstar made lots of money off this. I dont like seeing a sale on such a high quality new game. Look where gameloft ended up....

Lowering the price by $3 does not imply that companies are making less money. Revenue is about Price AND Quantity. If GTA3 sales increase by more than 1/.4 = 2.5x in response to a 60% price cut (i.e. .4 of the original price), then they'll make more money. And since it's Christmas, they definitely will.
