Here is a video of physics actions in GTA IV.
This is Grand Theft Auto 4
Where drugs are dealed and hoes are hoes
All is done in the virtual space
Clips are emptied into an enemies face
We all should enjoying this game today
But you can thank XBOX 360 for that delay
Excellence is what Rockstar was trying to strive
But thank Microsoft for being stupid for no hard drives
it only makes sense i mean they might as well make sure it works well on 360 since thats goin to be the version that sells the most..dont even try to twist my words cause i am not implying that ps3 wont sell just that 360 will sell more wether that is 1 million more or 10,000 more .... i will only take back that statement if Devil May Cry sells more on ps3 or obviously if i;m wrong.
And when it comes down to it the they really just want to sell as many copies as they can and reel in those Profits... i honeslty feel this will push more sales For ps3 and 360 and sell atleast 10 million before the year is up .
just a few days back on here they had an interview with someone from rockstar (dont remember who the lead something) and he said that it was problems with the ps3 for the delay not the 360. 360 has always been ahead in development and the ps3 is just catching up now. thats why gta4 has always been shown on the 360. check stuff out before you sound stupid again.
was that pure speculation or u work in the rockstar studios?? 360 delayed it?? haha. just look at the past. again and again these dum...
His rap? That was tight son ya'll mean?
Just playing it was kinda lame.
Dude are you an idiot? That was not a statement from rockstar now please read your sources before you post them.
Actually you need a Hard Drive to play this game on the 360. Its the first game coming out where it is required.
All previews we have seen are of the 360 version. How come?
"In exclusive chat, Rockstar Games' Jeronimo Barrera says game is about the immigrant experience and PS3 is partly to blame for delay."
seems to say it is
And still developers like Rockstar complain about the problems of the ps3 and sony fanboys choose to ignore and spread lies. Rockstar is not the first to have problems with the ps3.
Stop ignoring the facts!
Hmm its still a surprise to me how anti ps3 loyalists can take things so horribly out of context. Notice the keyword in that statement by one guy(not rockstar as a whole) in which he says the ps3 was PARTLY to blame. This statement lends itself to other problems arising. Which is where the disk space and hard drive problems for the 360 version also contributed. Back in october when the game was supposed to release Game Informer had an article in which they reported that the 360 demo they watched wasnt running well at all(issue 174. pg.26). They cited framerate issues, less then inspiring graphics and just a general lack of polish So you fanbots can shout it to the mountains that the ps3 version caused the delay and speculate that sony is the reason the 360 version didnt launch, but in the end the game just wasnt ready for either console. Now that this game has had alot of time for spit and polish we should all be in for a treat. Both versions will sell alot of copies and considering the ps3 has seen a huge spike in popularity and sales, dont count it out of this fight... Move on fanboys......
For being the first to post an informative reply -
Bubbleshower for yoo^_^
thats not the only place i have read that the ps3 has always been behind in development for gta4. why is it assumed that if i say anything bad about the ps3 i must be a anti ps3 fanboy. well... i have a ps3 and i enjoy it. im just going by what i read. also sorry but im in the thinking that this site is anti xbox and pro ps3. most of the news is ps3 when i see tones of news xbox but it never gets posted. if anything good is said about 360 its full of comments just as fast as the ones about ps3. notice how you didnt say the first post was a fanboy cause he was pro ps3 and since i said something bad about a ps3 i must be a fanboy. well i own both. and really i play neither. just had a baby and im a stay at home dad and 3 week old boys like to wake up when you pick up your controller. hes perfect so i dont mind. sorry this went astray. just once again. delays for gta4 from what i read most were ps3 related. not to say xbox had nothing to do with it but i do believe it woulda been out atleast weeks earlier for 360 if they didnt have the same release date. and i never said ps3 was the only cause for the delay just to counter what the first guy said who did say xbox was the only cause for the delay i gave him a link to say otherwise. remember anti xbox is ok but anti ps3 isnt here.
cause LOTS of M$ money is involved...you don't bite the hand that feed you, as simply as that.
i agree ms paid 50 mil for the content you and shouldnt bite that hand but i dont think ms paid them anything to get them to make the game for 360 as well because it just makes sense from a business perspective to make it for 360 as well to more then double your market. i still think it was prolly 60% ps3 40% 360 problems for the delay only way to explain how 360 was always ahead on development. anyone know which was lead platform. ive always read neither were lead.
lol @ guy on ladder.
Damn... that rap was corny.
Did you really just call that a rap...?
I'm sorry but if you don't know that song you should just crawl back into the womb you came out of in 1995.
Wow. The anger :) Well done, you're hardcore.
lol @ rap...wow, ive finally found someone thats never seen scarface...pfft, or never listened to flashback fm on GTA3
LMAO @ how U guy's failed in being smartass's. If you read Floydsr's comment you'd understand Opiza's not talking about the song in the video.
looks sweet. Brutal and sweet.
The Physics are nice,and am looking forward to this game but saints row physics are just as good...
No they are not. GTA bends saints row over, rapes it, then demands payment. Thats how much better gta iv is then saints row.
I suggest you watch again, and learn something about game physics before you make yourself look like more of a fool. It's called Endorphin (or Euphoria for consoles). Go to NaturalMotins website. Download the Learning Edition. Play with it. Enjoy it. Understand what put's it head and shoulders above "physics" engine. Euphoria is like giving AI a working nervous system, and completely gets rid of canned animation in physics routines.
there was no Saints Row or any other noob games that wanna be GTA.
floydsr ur an idiot rockstar has said their god damn self the main reason for the delay was the ps3 wow fan boys are even going against the people who MADE the damn game.
No your the idiot. Rockstar has given no clear reason for the delay so shut up.
But the only thing they said was they needed more time to finish the game because its so big. Therefore no console delayed it, the awesomeness of the game did.
Gt over yourselves fan boys and just buy both consoles and enjoy great games from both sides of the fence (although in fairness i still waiting on good games for the ps3. drakes fortune was the only decent game out yet!)
And as for evil zhuk. Look at the recent news posting on N4G for gta4. A rockstar rep clearly states ps3 was responsible for the delay because it needed to catch up with the 360 version, since its development started at a later time.
Also the 360's hard drive was another reason for the delay because originally the game couldnt be played without it and they wanted to work on it so people without hard drives could play it too.
Keep in mind everything youve seen so far gta4 was is 360 graphics. Rockstar said both versions are pretty identical.
I've a ps3 and a 360. I'll be getting the 360 version simply because i enjoy XBL more than the PSN. And because of the bonus content.
Nuff said. Fan boys, grow up or stay off the internet!
See this is how BS rumors start with A-holes like you twisting words. The Rockstar rep never said the PS3 was the "main reason" for the delay. He said there where multiple reasons and the PS3 had something to do with it. IGN said the game played like sh1t when they previewed it last year so even if it released for the 360 last year it would be sh1t, so I don't know what your trying to get at b/c it would be a lose lose situation regardless.
Now you sound stupid. The guy didn't write that the ps3 was the "main reason" the delay occurred so quit puttin words in his mouth. When the rep was asked about the delay the first thing out of his mouth was about development on the ps3 so it had to have been somewhat of a large factor so just face the facts. also if u looked around enough you would see that any game site that talks about the frame rate says its now at a solid 30 fps, of course smoother than any gta yet. nobody said there was slowdown.
People aren't paying the fuk attention R* says that the game is playable without a hard drive for the 360 and its only needed for downloadable content. R* would have been playing with fire if they decided only people with hard drives could play it because that would have pissed off microsoft greatly, especially after they payed all that money for the extra content. although they could have made microsoft their b1tch and required a HDD for playin it, microsoft most likely would've not let it release or probably wouldn't do business with R* after the release of IV, no matter how much money they could make them.
im not a xbot i do realize the ps3, if development uses the full system power compared to the 360s full power, can blow the 360 out of the water on certain processing like "4D textures." the problem is this game doesn't need the aspects of the ps3 that are superior to the 360 so that's probably why the 360 was used as the lead platform
saints row physics are good but i dont think there as good as GTA's.
Bubble for you.
-PS3 version was a little bit behind 360 version
-They couldn't fit the game onto a DVD9
so PS3 1
xbox 360 1
then why is it that 360 is getting the full version?
you know... the full chapters???
is it cuz of DVD 9?
Guys be quiet and read my above post. No console delayed the game, the awesomeness of the game delayed it because it takes so long to finish.
lol, i like the way they just ran over everyone...
Especially at the guy with the chairs. I was thinking, "oh, they might show some object interaction with people sitting down on chairs".. and then BAM!!
The physics looks great though.. Just hope they build the map so we can still make all the lame stunts we can come up with.
This video is a demonstration of the middlewear tech that is used by GTAIV, but it's NOT a GTAIV tech video. You could just as well see a tech video from Force Unleashed which uses the same tech.
Looks very impressive.
I think they borrowed some from the star wars ethoria engine for the grabbing mechanism, it looks so damn natural. only 3 months to go. god dammit
I don't give S&*# where this game is going to look better.
IT IS KILLIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIINGG !!!!!!!
you all can fight all you want , I'll enjoy this game and laugh at all ya!!
I think its havok engine. Anyway dont let jack thompson see it, he'll try to get it banned by saying terrorists will use it to train people.
Edit:@below And you must have everyone agreeing with you right? Hence the single bubble.
Why even waste ur time typing. No one ever agrees with you.
Aww i was hoping it was a video with the full graphics and stuff.
Oh well, its all good!
Haha, if that guy on the ladder is in the game. I'm going to have HOURS of torturing fun.
Where's the hot coffee physics?
Man, there are games for 360 that require HDD to even play.
Oh, and these types of engines just prove how far ahead the West is ahead of the East. Nothing out of Japan even touches the several-years-old Havok system.
The West is ahead of the East? Where do most of the components come from that make up these consoles? In fact where do most of the consoles come from?
Two consoles are based in Japan, one in the US. Then if you count the handhelds Japan pulls away even more.
I read a little while ago that Japan is actually ~5 years ahead of most of the rest of the world in terms of tech research. TV's, gadgets etc that sort of stuff. Holographic-styled TV's and all that (Projector and very very thin screen)
Japanese games tend to be based more around the story whereas games from the US are based around the action. Just put MGS and Final Fantasy up against COD4 and Halo 3 and the Japanese contenders beat the FPS's storywise and imo I'd rather play MGS4 than COD4 and Halo 3 anyday.
I'd never count Japan out of anything to do with technology, after all they're the ones most likely to be able to put a robot in every home within the next century. Their fascination drives their enthusiasm and puts them ahead technically.
Just because a physics engine looks nice doesn't mean the West is better than the East...
those physics look like sh1t. The guy falls from 30 feet up lands as both his ankles and knees are bent, statys stationary then roles in a somersault, the tension force would tear appart the achilles tendon right off the bone. The guy that got shot onto the table...why was his arm still straight up? Sorry but no one can argue that those "physics" are good, anyone with a brain can see that this sucks, good thing its just a little demo/promo clip and not the real thing...shisters
To the retard that said the west is ahead of the east...hahaha What are you 3 years old? These engines show that the west is ahead of the east...mmkay so engines are synonomous with thecnology? Im going to take it that you are nothing more than a stupid little brained yankee b1tch. Stupid american..Japan is way ahead of the west, think economy..cough cough gee isnt america going into recession soon? haha
OWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW WWWWWWWWWWWWWWWNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
SHIEEEEEEEET thats rough.
I love the quote from Gears director..it was something like "We didnt want to Put in to much storyline in to bombard the player"
Dude dont even start this technological advancement bs. America has consistently been ahead of the rest of the world as far as innovation and technology go. Tvs, computers, phones, cell phones, hell even electricity were all pioneered here. Radio's were born here, atomic bombs. Even low tech stuff like the cotton gin, and mass production. Just because the japanese are electronically horny and spend trillions on electronic gadgets and innovation doesnt make them more advanced. There is more to technology then just games, tvs, and computers. America thrives on need rather then want. We invent based on our needs, where as japan seems to innovate based on enjoyment. I know your going to disagree with me but there is no denying our track record. Now I'm not going to beat my chest and say that america is better then any other continent, that would be narrow minded and ignorant. I will say that innovations seems to be bred in this country, I love my country and all that it offers to the world.
What were you doing 6th of August 1945....just curious?
Go do some research and you'll find we invent things in America and the east takes what we invented and makes improvments to it. So with out the initail idea you don't have the advancement in technology. Either way it benefits everyone.
things invented in america are almost always by people who just moved there from europe. things invented in japan are almost always invented by japanese people
But still fun to watch.
Videogames produced from the west are representative of american culture...kill, shoot, violence, murder, simple minded game design. Why do you think cod4 did so well? It was created by yankees that no nothing more than their army, war, and guns. Japan uses logic and intellect in developing game scenarios and storyline, why do you think FF series have done so well and countless other RPG titles, yankees dont have the brain to do anything or think of anything besides war. Want evidence? Just play cod4 online and listen to the stupid accent of yankee hicks and how they know every single gun and spec of those guns, so lame, JAPAN!
You win the Darwin award for Nationalistic Chauvinist of the Week.
btw, contrary to popular myth, Sudoku was created in the West.
Starcraft, which is obsessed with over in the East, was made in the West.
And for the record: COD4 sucks!
And what great pioneering creative culture might you be from ? Oh wise and noble one. Who cares where your from like Bill Hicks said who cares what piece of dirt your parents f*cked on. Japan has just as much violence in there culture. You watch any Japaneese anime with all the sick stuff in it. wether it be sex or violence it's everywhere and for you to say it's all because of America is naive. What came first violence or America ? What came first the gun or America ? Almost every othe country on this planet has seen more violence than America. The histories of European and middle eastern countries have been riddled with violence for thousands of years. Despite what you may think of our foreign policy or our need to police the world. It isn't a fair representation of our country as a whole. Most of us don't like Bush or the things our government does. Hopefully you can think outside the box a little but than again... I don't excpect too much from you.
Nice find and vid. I specially liked how dead poses look look dead and people don't die and bounce like Havoc based games.
wow... those physics looks like crap to be honest. at least compared to other games of this generation. and i hate to say it, but from the last GTAIV trailer, the character animations look like crap too.
hopefully this wont be the case with the complete version. oh well, I'm still buying it lol
Must all be fanboys? who cares what delayed it? it wasnt entirely the ps3s fault anyways, it was because of the install base of both consoles and im guessing partially do to Halo 3 had to do with it also being delayed. now that GTA4 has a release date, expect games to ether get delayed if they were slated around that time of April 29th.
not that I'm suicidal or anything, it just looks so dam funny XD
I hope they don't all walk like they have a stick up their a$$ in the real game...
I'll take it as it is!! It actually looks better than any Wii game i've ever seen!!! =0P
The game looks really good. Its a shame there's war from the very first post :(
that was a sweet showcase of the type of moves you can execute in the game- my fav was the jumping from bike to other vehicles bit
Some footage from the PS3 version!
