Unused GTAIV Website Introduction?

RockstarWatch reports, that they have found a video on the Grand Theft Auto IV website that appears to have been unused. They suspect it was an introduction to the website, similar to what the GTA3 website has, as it pans out to show the panorama you get when the site first loads. Anyway take a look and comment on what you think: (Grand Theft Auto IV, PS3, Xbox 360)

Yeah they didnt use it because.......
lol the taxi driver doesn't appear until the 9.5th second, where the car reacts slightly to the sudden wait of the driver. Funny lol You can see it clearer on the high res vid at the actual link...lol funny

Hope they iron out that pop-up issue before launch.
That high-def video really gave off a nice Liberty City atmosfear though!

They didn't use it because..

When are you gonna learn that graphics aren't all there is to videogames? This game will easily give me 200+ hours of play time, and I wont have time to notice that this game isn't as graphically boasting as Crysis because I'll actually be having fun!

Have you ever looked at the official trailers??
This video was optimized for web use so the quality wouldn't be reflectant of the actual graphics in the game.
Look at the official trailers using your PS3 or 360(i don't know if it plays videos i'm assuming it can) and you'll see how the game will actually look on your television.
It's being highly praised by the journalistic gaming community.
Then again, 1 person out of 20 not liking the game isn't much to affect the overall projected sales figures for this title.

People who say that GTA IV is last gen .........
Is definably retarded! Have you seen the videos? the Ai? ... well go ahead and do so, before biitching about a stupid intro video, wish wasn't even official used - why? maybe it was from a early build beta? maybe the developers noticed the bug? ect. ect. stop biitching you spoiled kids! or R* end up giving you nothing, and then you can sit outside the candy store and watch the adults buy sweet - but you wont even get a single piece of it

those graphics arent awful

aye dumbass once you see the scope of this game u'll b shutting your mouth and realizing that what they've accomplished is actually quite impressive. There's always haters but I'm getting tired of hearing these gamers complaining about the graphics, they're ignoring all the other efforts rockstar has put forth to make this a hell of an experience. if the gameplay and environment/ambiance tech were the same as last generation, then we'd have a whole bunch to complain about in terms of the graphics

those graphics
look as good as THE DARKNESS, cool at least i know there brethrens,
2K Games, and TAKE 2......help each other out

i felt the time used in creating the new engine could have been spent on making the game better than even possible, cause they didnt want to pay E.A. royalty's for renderware

or if renderware were still used, it would have played exzactly the same as all the others , ILL NEVER KNOW

hope it was a move for the best, crackdown failed with the renderware, so , im pretty sure rockstar knows what its doing

You kids do realize that you have to sacrifice great graphics to get the scale and scope of a game like this, right? I hope so. If you want amazing graphics, be prepared to taken to a Liberty City that has to load every couple blocks, a Liberty City that will play like Grand Theft Auto 3.

YEAH soo horrible the compressed textures on the dvd9 disk of a certain console, blu-ray. uncomprimised
a liberty city that uses 5 gig of ps3 hdd memory, to give us a seemless city, with a short stick starting load, and no load what so ever for the rest of the game , and also utilizing that memory to leave a long standing footprint..... bulletholes, bazooka missle marks, cars destroyed, peds stacked up high, bullet shells banged ......all from 5 minutes ago or longer

sorta like there brothers 2K games did on oblivian with those gigs
when i mass produce objects and hours later run into the scatter i created earlier ..i multiply object hundreds of times and find them in there exzact possition later...no special longer loading for that

amazing eye
i just pause the video at 8 sec and i saw that taxi driver was sitting in left side and suddenly he moves at the driver seat at 9.5 sec.
btw GTA 4 will be amazing.

yeah it probrably hurt rockstar a little if this gets seen by the masses- there not known for pop ups
Rockstar asked you to take it down, i hope someone was able to grab the hd version before it left..........so wheres the sideways link were someone uploaded it on a differnt website for me to download?
