Grand Theft Auto IV hands-on report from GamesMaster

As that April release date creeps ever closer the latest issue of GamesMaster has got a hands-on report of Grand Theft Auto IV - and it's still sounding fantastic.

"It's during a cab ride that we realise just how good the new GTA is," the mag says. "There's as much traffic as you'd expect. But you can see people actually driving their cars and hear what they're playing on their stereo as you drive past."

For me its the opposite why the [email protected]#$ did they keep the controls so retro. Saints row controls were perfect they should have tried to copy this.

What does that mean?
A week behind what?
The controls haven't been completed for the game?
Cuz destructoid's info said it was on point with the 360 version.
Only if this hands-on was conducted before the completion of the PS3 version.

What makes you think folks are going to say anything different?.

I think a week behind a build they would want to show to the press. But this contradicts a lot of other information. Oh well. Hopefully they show vids or screens from the PS3 version because at this point, PS3 owners have a right to be skeptical after all the sh!tty ports they were put through last year.

GTA4 is not a port.
It was built from the ground up using the PS3 dev-kit.
Meaning there were two teams working on the game.
A 360 team and a PS3 team.
Hence the reason why it's reported as being equally as impressive on both systems.
A port would have caused loss of quality when coding is transfered from one platform to the other.
Rockstar isn't a lazy developer, they have the equity to finance two development teams.
