can someone explain to me how every 360 owner is going to play the extra episodes on GTA? haven't MS just reduced the price of the 'Arcade'? this is an odd strategy and i wouldn't mind betting Rockstar aren't thinking in a similar way. perhaps GTA1 and GTA2 on PSN is there way of clawing back the money they know they are going to lose and also give Sony fans something to compensate

They'l download them to the HDD, and if they don't have one of those, the Memory Card.

If they have neither; tough luck.

I just thought of that. The DLC for this game is going to have to fit on their memory cards, right? What's the max amount of data those things can hold? 512MB? LMFAO! And the lowest price for the 20GB that I've seen at official stores is $90. Nickel and Diming So many ignorant people taken by M$. Tis a sham(e).

Heres OG to save the day:

The Trailer. I Uploaded it to Gametrailers awhile back (http://www.gametrailers.com/player/usermovies/174276.html)

I wonder why R* took it down so quick....whats in this that they DONT want us to see? The city?

One Dan Houser's fav moments:

There are so many defining moments, but a recent one was during a police chase.
A song I love came on one of the radio stations while I had two cop cars chasing me through chinatown. I was speeding along when another cop car I hadn't seen rammed me straight on, our cars crunched together, and I was sent flying through the windshield.
I ducked into cover and could still hear the song playing from my smashed-up car. Then the cops opened fire, but one of them hit a pedestrian who pulled out his gun and started shooting.
The next thing I know, there was a full-scale war going on between a random gang and the cops. Within a few seconds all the cops were dead and the gang members walked away.
I got hold of another car and quietly drove out of the search area to lose my wanted level.

Not wearing seatbelts and flying thru windows is ***king gangstar! Joke aside though, seriously, that sounds intense. Totally god damn badass.

That whole sequence sounds like ***king Die Hard badassedness, frigging in-the-movies-only action. I dunno wtf you're talking about OG.

Realism, tension.

In other GTAs you could play bumper cars around the city with the worse being you would spin out for a few seconds, this time you have to drive more carefully, which should make chases much more exciting.

Also don't forget you can get engine failure if you crash too much though your car won't blow up, it will start to go slower then stop working.

And OG if you don't like this kind of approach, Rockstar promised that cheats will be there in case you want to cause chaos without much consequences.

I personally love these new features.

First thing I'm gonna do:
Open the game, get a car, head on collision, lol @ Niko's pain.
Then I'll re-start and play properly.

.....so?

isn't it going to upset a few 360 owners that buy the game and then realize they can't play the full game because they bought a 360 without a HD? the big thing is the extra content on the 360 which MS was rumoured to have payed 50 million for... it just seems a mixed up strategy to me. MS have announced a price drop for the 'Arcade' (with no hard drive) that's surely going to increase it's sales and cut down on possible downloadable revenue. it doesn't make sense to me. then we have Bill Gates talking about downloadable being the future... see what i mean? this is one of the reasons i believe MS are preparing a withdrawal

02-17-2008, 10:19 PM
....so? Thats thier problem for not going all the way and forking over $100 extra dollars. Thier strategy is probably to get people to buy the 120Gb HDD but im not that stupid,$200 for that shit, please

But since the 1st wont come out until like 2009 right? Im sure there will be like 4GB Memory Blocks and price drops on the HDD

I'm a die-hard Playstation fan, and I'd love nothing more than for GTAIV to have taken opportunities with Blu-Ray instead of giving all the extra shit to blindsighted 360 fans through paid downloads for the fucking money machine, but forcing these immature jokes is, well...immature.

The journalists of the PSM magazine have played GTA IV during 4 hours for 7 missions. Here there impressions, the mag officialy comes out on february 25th.

- The first hands-on minutes of the game are enough to understand how the game is gonna kick ass.
- The city have a lot of streets of any genre.
- You cannot enter in all the buildings, but you can interact with most of them.
- No property gestion, neither gang gestion nor trade gestion.
- Instead of that, we'll have bowling, dart games, drinking spree in pub, strip-club and night club.
- The core of GTA IV is all about the human relationship.
- Sometimes, your contacts may call you during hard mission to ask you a service, you choose between the mission or your contact.
- If you do sh*t with your contact, you may assume the consequences.
- The impression of a breathing city is, again, absolutely stunning.
- The density of the population (peds) change between the place/borough you are.
- If you walk around the street with a gun in your hand, peds who have a cellphone can call the police.
- While we tried to high-jack a car, the scared bastard go so fast that he hit 2 cars.
- During the first mission, we tried to high jack a car without gun, then the driver beat up niko, who finished at the hospital.
- Peds react in a very realistic way, like they lead their own life.
- We played seven missions during four hours, the devs tell us that it's a very very small portion of the game.
- 15 minutes necessary to go through 2/3 of manhattan with a boat, and 10 minutes by car to do brooklyn/central park.
- The cars can be destroyed very realisticly, every parts can fold, it's stunning !
- More variety of missions, and hard.
- The game is done, clipping has gone, and the game is super smooth.
- Forget about every other gta-like that tried to compete GTA IV, that game kick ass.

Thanks to http://www.gta-like.com/ (and dalkai)

QUOTE
- If you press the jump bouton, niko can climb everywhere, you can also move straft left or right while you're hung at something (assassin's creed style).
- There is swimming club.
- If you have 5 stars, it's very difficult to escape from the cops, they are everywhere and they don't joke with you and this time, they are really clever.
- While boast trip, the sfx are awsome, you can hear the sound of the waves that beat the cockle of the boat, wonderful !
- With powerful weapons, you can shoot through the walls.
- The weather : we've seen fog, rain, sun, clouds, variety of colours depend of what time it is, soo beautiful.
- This time around, for the first time in a gta, if you die you go to the hospital and you paye $100, but you keep all of your weapons. - But if we go to jail, we must pay a lot more and we no more have our weapons . - While you are drunk, it's very difficult to control niko, the drunk sensation is perfectly done. - When we steal a car to a ped, he can hung his car and they are gliding on the road (like a sh*t lol). - When we make a crime, choppers arrive with searchlights to follow you through the city. - We've seen some strip tease in a prositute club, by paying the chicks. - after a big crash on the freeway, niko get ejected through the window and he lost some health. - Depend on wich bourogh you are, peds speak different language if they are italian, chinese, or bronx dude. - Healthkits are available only in the buildings. - Grenades and cocktail molotov's sfx and effects are really stunning! http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=313181 Shadow Voa 02-20-2008, 02:19 AM I'm a man for jokes.

you put in both games and realize it's the same thing then fall 08 download two packs on the 360 alone....thats how

I dont get what your getting at, basically you think the ps3 version will have more content or something launch day due to blu-ray?

No. What I think most people would think is just craziness. But I suspect, and it is just a theory of course, is that GTA4 has always been to big for a DVD9. It could never fit on a DVD9, even though Microsoft most likely asked that it would. I suspect R* said hells no it wont, it is just to big. So what is Microsoft to do? They cannot look worse off for GTA4 in the public eye. It would be a public relations nightmare if it was known that GTA4 was too big for the 360's DVD9s. So what do they do? Microsoft cooks up a plan to offer "exclusive" downloads that in reality are just the parts of GTA4 that would not fit on a DVD9 but would fit on a Blu Ray disk. R* jazzes the parts up for Microsoft with some extras like clothes, guns and cars to justify the cash. But in the end it is just what would not fit on a Blu ray disk. I know, it sounds like craziness, but it is something I think Microsoft would do to help safe face in the public eye and make themselves look kooler than Sony at the same time. They are also going to make cash off the downloads if I am not mistaken. Microsft likes to charge for everything off of Live under the sun.

If I am right, then it is really the 360 that gets the gimped version. if I am wrong then I am just talking craziness and you can write this off as BS. That or as we have always suspected is that R* gimped GTA4 to fit on a DVD9 first and were concerned about the PS3 version second. In the end it really matters not as we get what we get from R*.

I see your logic with this and it sounds like good thinking to me and I really wish it would turn up like that, but I just fear we might be too optimistic. One thing that I'm sure of is, that if it will go like you thought here, I will have even more respect for the team behind the game for doing the right thing to get a "complete" GTA for all the consumers. I would not count on it though because as we all know money tends to be the thing that matters in the end (ruling out a few exceptions) and that way I find it likely as well, that the downloadable content for 360 will actually be totally exclusive, even if they could have easilly fit all that directly for the blu-ray version as well. It depends on how much money they really want for that extra content or if they just think that the downloadable content cannot have any major differrences compared to the other version as well, no matter what MS is willing to pay. It will be very intresting to see how this turns out IMO.

Official GTA4 website update provides 8 new screenshots (http://www.gtagaming.com/news/comments.php?i=1139), easier to look at them from here. (http://www.gtagaming.com/gtaiv/screenshots.php)

Rockstar sends out Hidden Package #3 with cool stuff if you wanna check it out. (http://www.gtagaming.com/news/comments.php?i=1138)

Annnnd, news that is not going to be popular in the PS3 section: August 2008 for the first of the two X360 exclusive episodic content. (http://www.gtagaming.com/news/comments.php?i=1137)

Also here is a list of cool shit bullet-pointed:

According to the journalists, the first hands-on minutes were enough to solidify their feelings of how the game is going to kick ass.

Liberty City has more streets than any other game in the genre.

You cannot enter every building. However, you can interact with most of them. Rooftops, stairways, fire escapes, partial interiors, etc.

Niko will not be able to manage property, gangs or trade.

Bowling, dart games, drinking games, strip clubs and night clubs will be available.

The core of GTA IV is all about the human relationship.

Sometimes, your contacts may call you during a hard mission to ask you a service. In this instance, you can choose between the mission or whatever your contact is asking. If you ditch your mission to do things with your phone contact, you may see consequences. Whether or not you will be able to replay the mission that you went away from remains to be seen.

The new impression of seeing a next generation living, breathing city is absolutely stunning.

The pedestrian population density changes between the place/borough you are in.

If you walk around the street with a gun in your hand, pedestrians who have a phone can call the police.

In one instance when Niko tried to carjack someone, the scared innocent driver sped away so fast that he hit two cars.

During the first mission that the journalists played, they tried to carjack someone without a gun. The driver beat up Niko. Niko got beat up so bad that he ended up at the hospital.

Pedestrians react in a very realistic way. The journalists said that it is as if each person in the game leads his/her own life.

It took 15 minutes to go through 2/3 of Manhattan with a boat. It took 10 minutes by car to go through Brooklyn and Central Park.

The cars can be destroyed very realistically. Every part of the car can bend and fold.

GTA IV has a wider variety of mission types. The missions are more difficult than in previous games.

The game is done. Most clipping bugs are gone. The game is super smooth in terms of frame rate. (Note: The game is not 100&#37; done. It is not "gold" yet.)

If you press the jump button, Niko can climb everywhere. In other words, wall climbing from San Andreas has returned. You can strafe on walls, too.

There is a swimming club.

If you have five stars, it's very difficult to escape from the cops. They are everywhere and they don't joke with you. They are smarter than in previous incarnations of the series.

While in a boat, the sound effects are awesome. You can hear the sound of the waves that beat the front of the boat.

With powerful weapons, you can shoot through the walls.

The weather that was seen during the four hours of gameplay included fog, rain, sun and clouds.

A variety of colors can be seen depending on the time of day.

When you die, you pay $100 but you get to keep your weapons. When you go to jail after getting busted, you pay more than$100 and you lose your weapons.

While you are drunk, it's very difficult to control Niko. The drunk sensation is perfectly done.

When stealing a car from a pedestrian, Niko didn't get into the car before the pedestrian sped up. Niko held onto the car as the pedestrian glided along the road. (Note: It may have been the pedestrian holding on to a car Niko was in. The translation is sketchy.)

Choppers with search lights are in the game.

Women will striptease in strip clubs when you pay.

Depending on the borough you are in, pedestrians may speak different languages. Italian, Chinese and those in the Bronx are different when it comes to language.

Health kits are available only in buildings.
Grenade and molotov cocktail sound effects are stunning.

Just because this is the GTAIV official thread >_>:

So it Looks like Microsoft has finally announced what it's Exclusive DLC deal w/ Rockstar really means, according to Microsoft each episode of DLC content will be equal to the games San Andreas and Vice City for Ps2/Xbox. They have also stated that Digital Downloads will be the new way to deliver the GTA "Expansions."

So it looks like with this new announcement if you were planning on playing the Vice City/San Andreas versions of GTA IV the 360 is the Definitive version to get, with the first expansion arriving as early as Fall this year and the next one to follow-up in 2009.

GTAIV DLC

* When MS says exclusive, they mean that no other system can have DLC content for GTAIV

* It will be bigger than a lot of people think. GTA3 Vice City and San Andreas were basically expansions of GTA3. Think of the DLC that way. We are talking major expansion for GTAIV

* No price has been discussed yet. It’s up to Rockstar on whether or not they will charge for it

* If successful, DLC may be the new way to deliver GTA expansions

sweet lord ^_^

As to the 2nd bold and italic, thats COMPLETE BULLSHIT. Up to rockstar to choose the price, rofl, yea right.

I think that is safe to say. I seriously doubt 360 owners are going to see dlc that is the equivalent of an entire game. I wouldnt doubt the dlc is along the lines of maybe episodic content offering around 5 hours of playtime or something along these lines though.

exactly... there is something fishy about MSs strategy. they say DC is the future and then bring out the 'Arcade' (without a hard drive), then they are going to introduce a youtube like channel for Live so that hobbiest devs can sell their games on it, but then half royalties for small time devs.

Modern compression could put a considerable difference in download size. Much of the information associated with the game will already be housed on the hard copy of the title itself. Previous dlc of this nature hasnt been an issue nor was it a massive download.

Well in part many assets will be reused. Just about every game in existence reuses assets so its not as if this title would be anything new. Think of it along the lines of Oblivion: Shivering Isles.

find me two rocks in motorstorm that are simulator.
find me two areas in resistance that are simulator.
find me two areas in hevenly sword that are simulator.
find me two areas in uncharted.

i love burnout but... one thing that bugged me was the heavy asset recycling. in the mountainous region you can see texture recycling running rappent. citywide you can see where buildings are repeatedly used.

DVD9 (Xbox) compatible games are turning into the video game equivalents of Tom&Jerry running past the same door, lamp&table over and over.

GTA4 will suffer Burnouts problems as wel.

BTW recycling assets makes games very easy to compress thats why 360 games do it ALOT

when file size suddenly is not an issue (ala BR) suddenly the recycling assets stops and games just seem more natural and everchanging.

lol ok Jax

Sorry Im not going to go through Motorstorm and look at every rock possible. Do you really think that every rock or blade of grass is a completely different build?? You dont think that one can compile reused assets to give a different look in a scene??

Reusing assets is also important for memory as well. You ever wonder why all the enemies in HS or Uncharted all looks similar throughout the game?? How about Lair with leagues of enemies using the same character model.

Send a PM to Cpi for further elaboration if you wish.

I know DVD9 is the most horrible thing ever to be thrust upon gaming today. Im sure developers/publishers are willing to spend massive amounts of money and time to create completely different assets for every scenario imaginable.

Most everything I have seen for GTA4 looks very promising, Im sure they will be reusing assets for multiple reasons.

DVD9 may or may not be a hinderance for the title.

Guys from PSM3 talk about GTA IV what they saw at Rockstar's office

They explain GTA 4 controls and show that you press circle to punch and square to kick, also show that when you hit R1 you go in coverAlso they show you have three movement speed, walking , jogging and Sprinting.They say that at some places you can climb objects like Assasins Creed with the square button.TheyShow how the phone works, Down on the d pad and \it makes it appear at the bottom of the screen.You can jack cars in GTA 4, break the glass with L1 and then you cut wires to make the car start.You can go in NetCafe to go on the internet in the game.

and you can't escape the fact that when devs approach a game they must think about the amount of memory and cut back on content in order to fit the game on a DVD9, conversely, when devs look at Blu-ray, they must think about what else they can put in. it's not rocket science

Matt, the attitude isn't necessary, thank you for playing.

Wounding locked it because of some vague lines between the polarity of free speech, i.e., 'this is my opinion about that on this game' and blatant fanboyism, i.e., The PS3 version is being held back cuz the 360 is gay.

Kinda hazey difference there? Yeah, well it depends on the perspective of everyone here, and you can't deny we're all notorious for giving each other piggy back rides over our love for PlayStation. To an extent it can't be helped, we're PlayStation fans, and this is the Sony Gaming part of the boards. With that in mind, when people can't get a lid on that braying lid of theirs, and just start spouting off at the mouth throwing reason to the wind, it sounds kind of obnoxious, and pompous and let's not forget repetitive. Repetition is by farrrrr the biggest culprit here. So Wounding, so vexed at the, from his perspective, blatant fanboyism in the thread (can't say I blame him), which for some members served only to cut down the Xbox 360 version of the game, had had enough, and locked the thread. In retrospect, he maybe should have deleted a bunch of posts and PM'd some guys, instead of punishing everyone who gives a damn about GTA (which isn't me, for the record). And it's not fair to have a GTA thread in the xbox360 section and general video games if the PS3 board can't hold one as well.

The problem with being a moderator is people love the moderator until they themselves are being moderated. I know, it stinks. If anyone has anything at all to say or ask regarding the issue PM me, wounding stepped down as moderator. Continue discussing grand theft auto in a somewhat civilized and rational manner.

But really, they do look nice. I like how there are multiple sizes and stuff, nice bump map/normal map or whatever on them too.

I wonder how long I'll just ***k around shooting stuff and crashing into things before I actually start playing the game like I would properly try to.... can you still cause some small like house lot size fires?

I have two volvos a 240 like the one in the pic and a 760 turbo desile. with over 500k miles between the both of them. and i drivem daily

my original statement was because of certain limitations GTA4 would neather have to be graphicly sub par or much smaller. juging buy the heavy use of recycled textures and other assets. im leaning on poor grafix with a larger enviorment.

look at the screen shots below. look for blurry and repeating textures there everyware. This is a direct result of a lack of storage medium.!

Well...

high resolution textures will never make it into a game like this, because either the RAM is too small or the optical medium too slow (and the HDD is only optional). GTA games NEVER were graphical powerhouses and neither will GTA4 be. I am ok with that^^

Last generation, the XBox suffered from the PS2, now it is the other way round (the XBox had double the RAM of the PS2). There will be enough games, that take advantage of BDROM soon, and then MS will be in trouble^^ (sarcasm!!!)

OG_Monkey
02-26-2008, 11:46 PM
So anyway how about that online multiplayer. Im thinking 8 players tops although 8 would be cool.

I started playing Saints Row online again..its actually quite better than i thought...especially when you dont loose every time, so GTAIV could expand on this but i really do hope theres free roam like San Andreas

GTA 4 will take roughly 100 hours to finish
By Wesley Yin-Poole - 28/02/2008 - 6:04pm GMT

GTA 4 will take roughly 100 hours to finish, Rockstar has told VideoGamer.com.

During our visit to Rockstar's London HQ for a hands-on with 2008's biggest game, we asked a spokesperson how long it would take to finish the series' next-gen debut. The answer: about 100 hours, if you take your time.

"If you're not in a rush and you answer the phone when it rings it'll take about 100 hours to complete", we were told. "It's harder to distinguish between main and side missions - there are loads of both. But there are more main missions than side missions. It's not as clear cut as it used to be because of the phone."

In GTA 4 main character Niko's phone is used to call computer-controlled characters, arrange drinking sessions, sort out dates with women and call in jobs. It'll also be the portal through which players will access GTA 4's multiplayer, on which there is currently little info.

Grand Theft Auto IV: In Our Heads

A candid discussion about the new look, feel, and gameplay of Grand Theft Auto IV.
By: Giancarlo Varanini and Douglass C. Perry | None
Feb 28, 2008

"Seeing how well the cover system works--and all of the things that you can do while in cover--really got me excited."
Giancarlo Varanini,
Xbox 360 Versus PS3

Aside from the exclusive downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of the game, there aren't a whole lot of differences between the 360 and PS3 versions of Grand Theft Auto IV. Most of them are the usual things we've heard before with other games--the 360 version looks a little bit softer and more natural while the PS3 version seems a little sharper around the edges. But, both versions look excellent at this point.

In our nearly two-hour long visit to Rockstar’s plush hotel room on the 8th floor of Hotel Vitale in San Francisco today--which gave us one beautiful view of the city--both of us got a better perspective on the virtual city of Liberty City, Rockstar North’s imaginative interpretation of present day New York, plus plenty of hands-on time with the game.

Doug: I’ve been to New York many times, and the first thing that struck me about this playable build was how the lighting and the architecture create a mood and a feel similar to that of New York. When I first see games, I want to see what the game looks and feels like, and visually, the palette and buildings create a grittier, more realistic aesthetic to the game that’s starkly different from any of the previous GTA games.

Giancarlo: Yeah, I have to say that I’m really impressed with the amount of detail put into Liberty City. I don’t think there was really any single point where I thought, “Wow, this neighborhood looks the same as the last one, but with a few different textures.” It just seems like there was more attention paid to making individual sections of the city look distinct. What really amazes me is all the ambient stuff that’s going on in the city while you’re just walking around. People are eating, reading newspapers, sitting on park benches--all of the things you’d expect people to be doing during the day. There’s something extra funny about punching a guy in the face right when he’s about to buy a hot dog.

Doug: Exactly, punching some sucker in the face while eating a hot dog is something I would really love to do in real life, but I just don't have the cojones for it. That's why this game is going to be so much fun, for the escapist aspect.

GTA IV definitely plays differently. GTA III, Vice City, and San Andreas all had this generally quick, arcadey feel; they looked and felt similar to one another. Controlling lead character Niko on foot through the streets felt new. He has weight, and he moves a little more slowly than I expected. On the surface, independent of context, that might be a bad thing. But in the context of the game, the NaturalMotion Euphoria engine--which is the same program being used in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed--enables the characters to move more like real people. But after walking and running around, it felt natural and I enjoyed it. Likewise, the cars all felt heavier and in some strange way more realistic. Forget slamming the brakes--or even the e-brake--at the last minute and trying to take a sharp turn. The cars do not drive like arcade vehicles any more.

You don't really need much cover from up here.

Run, Niko. Run!

Giancarlo: That’s definitely something you notice right away, and honestly, I like it. One of my complaints about previous Grand Theft Auto games was that there just wasn’t any weight behind anything--it all felt like you were playing within a cartoon world despite the fact that you’re in a super-realistic setting. With GTA IV, it’s like every movement matters, whether you’re throwing a punch or, like you said, driving a car. But it’s not so overdone that it overshadows what makes Grand Theft Auto enjoyable--it’s still just as much fun to zip through the city streets while avoiding or hitting pedestrians--and come on, who doesn’t do that? But I can see it taking some time for long-time fans to get used to it.

What did you think about the gun stuff? That was easily my favorite part of our hands-on time. Seeing how well the cover system works--and all of the things that you can do while in cover--really got me excited. In previous Grand Theft Auto games, it always seemed like you could just run around like a maniac in a firefight and get the job done, but now you actually have to use a little bit of strategy or Niko is toast. This is especially true if you’re blowing up everything in sight with the rocket launcher and the cops come down hard on you--if you don’t get to cover, it’s over.

Doug: Since I haven't played GTA in years and I've been distanced from the series for a while--I wasn't a big fan of San Andreas--I approached this game with a couple of expectations: One, that it would be better than Saints Row, which I liked enough despite its heinous copycat design and triple dose of cheesy humor, and two, that the combat and gun control truly get fixed. I don’t ask for much, do I?

So on gun stuff, you're totally right. All previous GTA games leaned heavily on the random, try-and-die philosophy of gun fighting. They were maddening--until you beat them. Then you were just relieved. These gun controls are much tighter, less maddening, and significantly different than previous GTA games. Cover works. It's been done before in many, many games, but it works here, and if you don't crouch behind a crate or peek from behind a wall, you're toast.

The hand-to-hand combat worked out nicely, too. Using the left trigger to lock on to an enemy, you can punch and kick, and some animations show Nico head-butting. In one fight, Nice punched twice, then head-butted some combatant flat on his back, and then stood over him brooding. It was super cool. The block function works fine, but I was unable to get the dodge function to work properly, so I'm worried about that one. One last thing about hand-to-hand combat: Remember how you pulled that pedestrian from the car and he started beating the crap out of you? Seems like Rockstar upped the combat level of some civilians. If you steal their car, watch out--it will be a real fight!

Giancarlo: No kidding. I think that’s ultimately what’s going to surprise most people about GTA IV is that it’s not so much of a “do whatever you want” game. Yes, you can still wreak havoc and blow up everything in sight, but there seem to be more potential pitfalls involved. When I first jumped into the game, I shot one of the cab drivers through the windshield and thought it was cool that he just slumped over in his car. But what I didn’t realize was that all of his dead weight would press down on the gas pedal, which caused the cab to barrel down on me and slam me into a wall.

Everything just seems to be so nicely tied together and it makes me happy knowing that Rockstar is looking to improve Grand Theft Auto and not sit back and essentially release the same game, over and over.

And i need them to confirm whether or not this is true:

http://www.thebitbag.com/2008/02/23/setting-the-record-straight-on-gtaiv-dlc/
*You can expect this content to be huge. I’d say several gigs worth. Since there’s no manufacturing cost involved and the game could cost between $19-$29 dollars. Again, we aren’t talking new car and music downloads. This DLC will most likely be a huge assortment of missions and new areas opened up. It may even be a brand new storyline using the GTAIV engine. Also, you know that with GTA3, Vice City and San Andreas were released shortly after the first game. Expect the same to happen with GTAIV.

They were so quick to say multiplayer is on both 360 and ps3 after MS screwed up but now so silent on this

Rockstar source: No demo for GTA IV

By Andrew Webster | Published: February 29, 2008 - 10:15AM CT

While speaking to VideoGamer.com, a Rockstar representative explained that the company will not be putting up a demo for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV. "I'm sure there won't be," the rep explained. "Most people know the concept of GTA anyway. I don't know that the demo is worth the time and effort."

The rep then went on to explain that Rockstar don't believe a demo would be appropriate for a game like GTA IV anyway. "Much of GTA 4 is the driving around and we wouldn't be able to give out the whole city. We would have to give away half the game for free. People would think Liberty City is a tiny city. You run into problems."

While a demo is an important tool for selling a game, there are some franchises that can live without them. In Rockstar's case, giving away a large demo might actually decrease sales because players will have a lot to play with without having to spend a dime. We think that it's safe to say that GTA IV will have no problem pushing units. Keep in mind that it's also prudent to be skeptical of unnamed sources.

http://arstechnica.com/journals/thumbs.ars/2008/02/29/rockstar-no-demo-for-gta-iv

No demo, from a source, but it could be wrong. Who knows? Ars Technica often gets good tips though. That would suck if there were no demo, but I can understand from R*'s point of view of wanting it all to be one huge surprise.

There's only been demos for the PS1 games, so it doesn't really come as a surprise.

She has magical powers. They make men's minds go all funny. Damn them and their hotness...

Back to GTA4 before I lose my mind....

So how abut that hand to hand combat system? How deep is it? Is it marginally deeper than GTA3 or is it like a fighter now? Or maybe somewhere in between? I wonder what kind of combos you can execute. Like in Uncharted. That fighting system was deeper than most action games similar to it, but it was no Tekken. I wonder where R* took this system now in GTA4.

Please don't confuse Hip Hop with Rap. That would mean you are belittling the likes of Kanye West, Common, Mos Def, Lupe Fiasco, etc, and I won't have that.:D

It's good for a month then you're like so sick of hearing it. But Biggie I can still listen to till this day. Take the Soldier Boy guy...the song "Soldier Boy" was cool but his two other songs are weak IMO. But Biggie had hit after hit. Good ole days.

is hip-hop like country and western?

Eh Hem, allow me, Rap Master OG to clear this up...

Hip-Hop = Common and others etc
RAP = 50 Cent and other etc
Failure and why Hip-Hop is dying = Soulja Boy and others etc

Both are still good, but RAP is mostly about gangstas hoes and bitches....theres a difference >_>

Who or what is Common? I hate hip-hop, but some rap I can stand to listen to....But only if it involves good music too.....Which is the reason I hate hip-hop...and country.

When I say 'Music' that is the sounds created by the insturments being played, I always confuse people with how I use that word.

He's also an actor, he was in Smokin' Aces and American Gangster, I don't like hip-hop/rap/whatever you want to call it, but he did a really good job in Smokin' Aces and I liked what little had had in American Gangster :)

If it's anything like the combat system in either The Warriors or Bully, it should be much better than GTAIII, VC or SA.

We are just saying that GTA4 is so good that it can stand up to the awesomeness of a hot girl putting jeans on (while juggling boobs) and then giving us a flirty smile.
