World's first GTA IV review "removed at the advice of legal counsel"

Following the posting of what claimed to be the world's first GTA IV review yesterday, all that's now left of the piece is a smoking hole and the rather curt message, "This site has been removed at the advice of legal council," VG247 reports. (Grand Theft Auto IV, PS3, Xbox 360)

World’s first GTA IV review “removed at the advice of MicroSoft counsel” :D
I just want to play it really:P
This is getting silly

I have a hard time believing this review was legit when I read it the first time.
sonarus  +   2869d ago
yea the review sounded like a load of crap but rockstar hasn't discredited it...yet

If that 'review' was real........
then thank god I'm getting the ps3 version.

But who knows if it's fake or real, for all we know the guy could really be Barney the lovable singable purple dinosaur.

for those that couldn't read that review, here you go

Is it real? Decide for yourselves....

@ Below, yeah, honestly, I don't think there will be much difference, except honestly I think Rockstar will (i mean they have been helped by Sony with the optimisation as told by Jermea Barrea VP of Rockstar in PSM3), they'd obviously take advantage of the PS3's SPU's and hard drive, I can definitely see subtle differences like more on screen in the ps3 version and better colour creation, more stable framerate etc. because of all the work the SPU's can do in the background with the hard drive.

But yeah who knows.

EDIT no. 2 - I just finished reading through the 'review', the same applies as I previously mentioned, but 9.3????? You've got to be kidding me, BIOSHOCK got 10's easily, San Andreas got 9.8's, 10's etc. no way GTA IV is getting less than 9.8 in my book. But i haven't played i can't really be the one to say.

ANYWAYY its nearly the 29th only 3 more weeks (YAY) so we'll know all soon........and in a few weeks we'll all (well us lucky few with next gen systems) be looking back and going either oh yeah he was right or oh what a d1ckhead lol

I found it highly doubtful that, as he wrote, the PS3 version would have split-screen modes and the 360 wouldn't, because it couldn't handle it technically. I have read many reports that have stated that the 360 version is one week ahead in development, and that both versions will have the same features. Add to that the fact that almost all previews have been made of the 360 version. The GamesRadar dude who was the first in the world to finish the game did it on the 360.

He could be telling the truth of course, but he wasn't reviewing the final build, which leaves us unknowing of what to expect really.

I'm just saying, I'll be waiting for proper reviews of this game.

That's not actually true.

For exmaple Geoff Keighley (a major games industry individual) has only seen it running on the PS3. And you don't know for sure that the guy who completed it, completed it on an Xbox.

I assume he did too, but there will have been otehr members of the press, playing it on PS3's for their respective magazines.

And as for the Split screen, Gamestop had this in thier description as only on the PS3 version. Althoguh it's since been changed/corrected. Maybe that's bombshell Microsoft or Rockstar don't want anyone else to know till release or it was a major typo.
InMyOpinion  +   2869d ago
@NO PUDding
The GamesRadar dude was reviewing the game for Xbox 360 World, so I assumed he was reviewing the 360 version =)

I can't argue with wether Geoff has only played it on the PS3 or not, or what version other magazines have gotten their hands-on so to speak =)

In any case, I don't think color or framerate differences are gonna stop anyone from buying either version.

lol 3 weeks :D 8-) that means it is being shipped to the stores already... its amazing lol <<< Countdown to GTA IV Launch :D
TheMART  +   2869d ago
That guy has a strange kind of reviewing there:

"I can't conclude one way or the other why the split-screen mode was not available on 360, but I assume by the drop in on-screen objects on the PS3 that the 360 just couldn't handle it. If you own a 360, don't worry. You have Xbox Live…so you're set."

Uhm... He previewed and didn't review, because he was testing not the final version of the game but earlier builds. So he did 'assume' something on top of a preview version.

Sounds like someone was trying to get attention for a website. The battle begins soonish, with real reviews and comparisons coming in. The end of April is almost here...

Phil Harrison Mklll  +   2869d ago
This review??? I liked it:D
The First GTA IV Review

With PS3 & Xbox comparisons:

The PS3 has a more relaxed color pallet, but this gives everything a more realistic look. If you don't like the realistic look, and you have a HDMI connection, you can fiddle with your PS3 display settings and get it looking much more saturated. The textures are just as sharp as the 360 version, and there's little to no pop-in or screen tearing. The PS3 takes longer to load than the 360, but I took several different head counts in game at different locations, and I always found the PS3 to be more populated than the 360. This could be attributed to the dynamic nature of the world, but it's hard to tell. Either way, the difference was never more than five to seven pedestrians or three to four cars—it's not really much of an advantage.

The 360 is bright. Boy is it bright. Based on discussion history, this one will be claimed to look better, but it'll really be preference. The texture quality is the same on both systems, but the 360 has a more cartoon-like look. This isn't a bad thing. It just depends on preference. I'd compare the difference to that of Oblivion on each system. The 360 also suffers from some frame rate drops that are almost non-existent on the PS3. Installing the 360 version on your system's hard drive, however, will bring performance almost up to par with the PS3.

I know, you want details, but all I can confirm is split-screen on PS3 only. I was alone, so I didn't actually get to have any matches, but I could tell that the split-screen worked really well. There was a significant decrease in the amount of traffic and pedestrians, but it didn't ruin anything. This is understandable. Rendering two instances of Liberty City is a chore for any machine. I can't conclude one way or the other why the split-screen mode was not available on 360, but I assume by the drop in on-screen objects on the PS3 that the 360 just couldn't handle it. If you own a 360, don't worry. You have Xbox Live…so you're set.

It's not a review, but a preview

"This review is based on early previews of the game. It may or may not reflect the final retail version, available 4/29/08."

So enjoy a nonsense written article from God who knows what kind of dork on the net, till the end of April when EDGE, 1UP and whatever trusted source has reviewed and compared it.

I've heard to many games that were said to have the best version on the PS3 weeks before the reviews and then... after the reviews suddenly the PS3 version sucked donkey balls. So don't get your hopes up to high there dude
THC CELL  +   2869d ago
Mart everything u say is a fail why bother u no ps3 has 2008 and 9
I no u have a ps3 cause u no hell of a lot of BS how can u judge something u never played Ya just a d*ck really man
if you go by word of mouth and stupid fanboys like a self u are retarded
i have met so many player in my live that was huge fans of x box and converted to ps3 fans. X box has Nothing Gears 2 fable then what man
We have games Like La noir,Getaway coming
Resistence 2,X box is dead

Whatever Rockster says the RAGE Engine and it Devlopment tools are built in and around the PS3, but background rendering is important in games like GTA and there the PS3 has more processing power so ultimalty more Objects and Actions around the city.
TheMART  +   2869d ago
haha go write proper English and no weird facked up slang


For every XBOX fan that you know that would have converted to PS3 I know 10 if not more PS2 former fans that converted to the 360.

Really. I don't know many XBOX fans or 360 owners that totally converted to the PS3. Some might have bought it along their 360, but Playstation fans did convert a lot more to the 360 then the other way around for sure.

Back to the facts: So you're ignoring the straight fact that this guy didn't review the final game, but based his 'review' on several previews of old builds of the game. If you actually did that and didn't just suck the whole story out of Kaz's d!ck?

I don't see any base of an actual review in this text. That's reality. That's why I am saying wait untill the reviews will come in. That is something PS3 fans should do also. Instead of all the hype before a game and then get dissapointed because they didn't get the best version of the game, but the 360 did.

It is always known the 360 version was further ahead and all the demos that have been run in public were running on 360 hardware. It is designed with the 360 first in mind. Most signs point to those games (at least 95%) that run better on the 360. And those few ones that have been designed with the PS3 in mind mostly are about equal, for example Burnout Paradise.

Thus we can say: this article is preview of early builds or totally made up, combined with the game designed with 360 first in mind, we'll have to see the comparisons at the end of April.

Mart for your fat head i am not english

X BOX is dead mate

"dora the explorer" "heyheyhey" "sirken" "the cell" all acted like animals on the ps3 forums laughing at the 360 owners then 10 minutes later some guy "prostate123212" provided a link to the blog confirming the review was fake and then for some reason n4g deleted it?
anyways all you sony fanboys didnt even reply and acted like it didnt exist this is sad and pathetic even when legit people provide proof that the review was fake they deny it cause there so desperate for a good game its sad DONT REPLY ILL BE OUTSIDE lmfao its funny ps3 have so much FREE time cause they have no games to play DONT REPLY I HAVE FRIENDS UNLIKE YOU
liquidsnake  +   2869d ago
I really don't give a crap wich one is better. Mart, you're saying that this is a preview of an early build. Still, the Ps3 version of the game has no framedrops, realistic colours...well you know the list. This can only mean that the final build will be better then what it allready is. So please get lost.

omni_atlas  +   2869d ago
I wasn't sure of the authenticity of the article either after the author claimed to put spoilers *AFTER* he reaches 500,000+ hits. Seems like someone looking for attention. If you go to the link of the article theres still a counter on the page at the end of "This site has been removed at the advice of legal council." (View the source file).
MrBii  +   2869d ago
Let me summarise again
For those of you who unfortunately did not had the chance to read the article before the site was taken off.

- PS3 version more realistic colors. Vibrant colors available by tweaking with color settings.
- 360 version is bright and gloomy. Gloom like no tomorrow.
- 360 version looks cartoony.
- PS3 version has more pedestrians and cars and much more vibrant city.
- 360 version has jaggies and suffers from framerate problems.
- 360 version has "pop ups". I personally would like to welcome 360 players to 1996.
- controls much more suited for the PS3 controller.
- PS3 has splitscreen and running awesome.
- 360 cant handle splitscreen.

GTA4 rated 9.3 out of 10.

Conclusion: PS3 version > 360 version.

Yeah that sum`s it up nicely.

Except what your summing up is most probably a Fanboy article similar to the one that was posting about the 360 version about a week ago.;.... funny thing was that wasn`t taken down by Rockstar legal team. Maybe there is some truth to what the guy wrote? Regardless we`ll see when the reviews start rolling in, not long now at all :).
Rageanitus  +   2869d ago
If this were true...
What hapened to all those comments months ago. where they said the xbox 360 version was playable yet the ps3 was not.

and why would they remove a review whether it be fake or real... I suspect money handling is inovled.

Gamers.... prepare to have overbloated scores like halo 3.

I don't think it was taken of. I think he waiting for his site to reach 500,000 hits then he'll put more detail into a spoilers section or something.

erm are you serious? reviews? nobody will be reading any reviews lol, every one will be playing the game and not caring about anything, i have got the feeling that this is gonna be worse that the Halo 3 launch lol
i am still wondering how much it will sell.. (i think it will either out sell halo 3 or it will be near Halo 3!! but i still can't wait.. 22 days left 8-)

Yeah that definitely sounds fake... definitely sounds like a fanboy to me. It can't be real because rockstar have already said that 'both versions are pretty much identical'.
Fallen_Angel  +   2869d ago
I also said that the 360 frame rate issues could be fix by install it on the HDD. WTF when has any game been able to be install on a 360. If fact MS doesnt allow it. The review is a FAKE and proven by the fact that it was removed. Seriously go back to reading SDF already.
LightningPS3  +   2869d ago
that review was bullsh*t.
But what about that crap article joking about the PS3 having an 85 minute install?

I guess paybacks a b*tch, huh?

Does anyone else find it kinda convenient how N4G mods never seem to catch those articles till they reach 100 or 200 comments. Then they safely dump it in the failed approval section. But not till after it did it's dirty work and that's to start a flamewar.

Came from a review from SarcasticGamer... On a friday. This 'review' was meant to be humourous. If you read the entire review you would've realised it was fake. That's not to say this isn't fake or true, just saying that the 85 minute install is known to be fake and satirical in nature

a few friends are gonna wait for the pc version even though its not sure if its coming (tho i am sure it is coz all gta games have been on pc aswel after all)
Alvadr  +   2869d ago
Ive never seen so many 360 fans hearts break. They are so desperate for this game to be better on the 360 its crazy.

Personally I couldnt really care, il be getting the PS3 version better or worse, I think differences between the 2 versions will be tiny and only fanboys will make them out to be bigger than they are.

A little over a month later il have Metal Gear only available on PS3 wooo.

Don't know why people find it hard to believe the PS3 version could be technically superior to the 360 version.

The PS3's SPU's are perfect for the number of calculations being processed in GTAIV. So I believed the "review" in the area where he said there was more happening on screen in the PS3 version than the 360 version.

This isn't the first time we're hearing this. We've also heard it from developers a number of times that the PS3 can handle a lot more simultaneous processes on-screen than the 360, which is actually obvious when you think about it.
I also remembered xbots saying early on that this isn't important and the systems "limited" ram hampers the CPU's capabilities lol.
Funny that now it seems like it is a major benefit to developers and the ram hasn't been mentioned as a limitation at all.

Yes yes you can go on and say how much of a virgin I am and I'm a 3 year old with no friends blah blah [insert useless verbal diarrhea here] etc., but my personal life has nothing to do with you nor do I have to prove anything to you on that part.

The point of the whole topic is that comments from people who make games , ie. not you, have all said that there is a lot potential to create technologically amazing games with the PS3. Don't attack me when it came directly from the goats mouth.

We've all been through this with the PS2 and we've all seen how "unproven" that turned out to be.
I'm sure common sense, something which you obviously lack, can tell you that you can't expect that to be accomplished within 2 years of the systems life. This isn't the 360 with tried and true tech, this is still all very new with more and more being discovered with each title that's released.


It's also extremely funny how many times you say "I HAVE FRIENDS".
It's like you worked so hard to achieve that goal. HAHAHA
Well run along and play with your little "friends" and stop reminding yourself and us over and over again that "you have friends" because we REALLY don't care.
I don't know why you would be here with all these "friends" you have. You sound like you have so much you barely have time for yourself.

i will continue to make fun of you because your a virgin a loner a person who defends there console you are sad you need to go outside before blowing your head off from extreme depression cause lets face it the only friend you have is a ps3 and remote which you occasionally stick up your @SS because your father wont do it anymore cause he was sick of your creepiness hugging your console praying for it to have good games feeding it and stick your pathetic excuse for a small childs P ENIS in the disc reader (YES your P enis is that small)
you dont realise how low you are in the world do you ? on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 is the lowest which equal to a serial killer and rapest)
your a 0.5 because at least serial killers and rapest have a reason for what they are doing you dont you just defend it like some crazy girl that has a crush on a actor and has pictures of him all over her room? i mean at least the girl likes something thats alive and not some machinery. bottom line is you suck your creepy your a loner and virgin your not a nerd your not a normal person your just another fanboy who defends his console without any apparent reason like some goof i hope you get beat up i wish i lived near you so i can throw you in ring a beat you silly and beat the fanboyism out of you

Buy a 360 controller and plug it into the pc.

TheExecutive  +   2869d ago
Probably R* if it was a legit source. Either that or the guys website to which he publishes. Anyway it sounds like he has played the game but there are 3 questions that need to be asked:

1.) How much has the game improved since the build on 2/21
2.) Even if he has played it is he a legit source?
3.) He states that unless they are side by side you cant tell a difference, so who gives a f*ck?

Official General  +   2869d ago
Well well.....
I cant say for sure whether this GTA 4 review is real or fake. But I must say it does sound very informative and very detailed and my instincts tells me that this guy has actually played both versions of the game. What he states about the PS3 and 360 versions of the GTA 4 seems to in line and quite similar to what other gaming websites have stated. I've heard IGN and a few other websites say the similar things about the comparisons of both versions. I think I will just wait for proper and official reviews of the game, and more importantly see it for myself to make a conclusion.

However one thing is for sure - the 360 guys are not gonna be happy at all once they see this so-called review!

There's gonna be some real pissed off, agitated 360 heads in here very soon. Expect the 360 army to come with a barrage of backlashes!

I'm getting the PS3 version anyway because thats the only current-gen console I own. I'm just counting the days and getting ready for whats gonna be a killer game!

this is hole lot of bs
ok the guy rights a review on a game that hasn't even been reviewed by the pros as yet. sounds like bs to me just look at the facts 1. 360 has a rep of sam of the best rendering in console gaming. 2. 360 has better antailiasing then ps3 and finely 3. ps3 can't handel complex tasks as the 360 can and dos all and more. so i divinely think this is a lode bs.

so sorry??
ps so sorry to piss off the ps3 army. but i own a 360 + ps3 and i like both of them so whets the prob.
TheExecutive  +   2869d ago
well Im not part of the "ps3 army" but you are just flat out wrong about your assessment of the hardware of BOTH systems.

Whoa broseph, I wouldn't say all of that.

@Everyone Else

The complex thing he is talking about could be the lack of a in-game PS3 guide, but that doesn't mean the PS3 can't handle it, just means Sony hasn't released it yet.

In a nutshell, the PS3 is the better tech console between the two. Features of each depend on Sony and Microsoft. The PS3 hasn't unleashed what it can do yet, because I don't think even Sony knows its' limits. Just wait, broseph.

As for'll call it preview(a review is generally based on the final version), I like the details he mentions. But seriously, is it just me that thinks it screams fanboy? I mean, he even comes out and "claims" he is a 360 fanboy, yet you can tell just by reading it that he is not. If you're a fanboy, you ARE NOT going to dis your console of choice version throughout the entire review. Why would he be extra hard on his preference? If you're a gamer, you'll state the facts(which according to him, he did) but, he says he is a fanboy. Hmm.

I'm buying the 360 version(achievements, DLC) from day one, no matter what. But I'll also be picking up the PS3 version if this far-fetched "review" is true.

Why does it matter so much to people which version is better? It is the SAME game.

I agree the game will be the same... also do you not think that the sony accomplishments will not be in the game?
tehReaper  +   2869d ago

I never meant to make it sound like they wouldn't be on the PS3, I just prefer them to go towards my gamerscore since it's already built up. You know what I mean?
TheExecutive  +   2869d ago
ah makes sense... yeah I would too.
tehReaper  +   2869d ago
Okay, whoever disagreed with me about my gamerscore has no life. Just because I own all the consoles, doesn't give you the right to disagree with me about nothing. That's just dumb.

I don't know...
I'm a PS3 fan and there's nothing more I'd like to see then PS3 version of the game get the edge for once, but I can't help but wonder if this whole "removed at the advice of legal council" is a stunt to make his review look more legitimate. Especially because there IS a difference between "council" and "counsel"

Funny. If GTA4 never came to 360 every xbox person would be: Who cares...
sleepbox  +   2869d ago
just like no one cares about the exclusive DLC NOT coming to the PS3 version right?
halo3betasnatch out  +   2869d ago
no not really, I have a 360 and a PS3 and if it wasn't coming out for the PS3 or visa versa I'd be pissed as for the DLC, I don't really care it seems like a bit of a waste, if a 360 version of a game got map packs and PS3 didn't that doesn't really matter for me, I bought the game for the game not DLC
Varsarus  +   2869d ago
isn't the ps3 also getting DLC? just not as much as the 360's?
sleepbox  +   2869d ago
I hope this guy is getting sued for all he is worth as well as if he is a legit "video game journalist" or has any other job in the industry I hope his career is destroyed by this idiocy.

Oh and btw, look at this little line that proves all of you are wasting your time...

"I think it's time to put an end to this! I'm getting hate mail in languages I can't even read! This site was created purely for entertainment, and I enjoyed every minute of it. Thanks!"

Total FUD fanboy BS. Who approved this? BAN THEM.

There really is nothing to see here
It wasn't legit end of story.

I have seen clips of both versions and I know hes on point with the color part. Installs I never knew of but if hes right the 360 ppl are going to get slighted since most have no hard drive or any space left on it. Which would also verify the frame issues for not installing. But who knows I doubt this guy would get so detailed if he was lying... and why would he make up lies about an install which every1 would know the truth when they pick up the game on the 29th. I dont see why a person would ruin their credibility for no apparent reason. But w.e we all will see on the 29th and im sure both versions will be amazing like he said probably wont even tell that somethings wrong unless compared side by side.

Alos about the split screen Im sure he just hasnt found out how to do it on the 360 version because if ps2 can handle split screen on gta then im sure 360 can but who knows gta4 is scaled extremely higher than previous gtas...

Once again I call balONY with this "most people with a 360 don't have a hard drive"

Really? so the arcade or basic model is the biggest sell 360 sku?

Not by a mile. Get over yourselves.
MonkeyOne  +   2869d ago
Is it true about the install to HD
Is it true you can install the game to the Hard disk on the 360? Or just portions of it?
tehReaper  +   2869d ago

None of us know yet. It could be true, it could be false. Generally the PS3 gets installs I think to increase loading times because of Blu-ray's reading rate.

360 hasn't had to do this yet because it has fast read times(hence the jet engine sound coming from your 360 when it reads a game). It'd be nice to have an option of installation, though.

if you got a 20g hdd ur gonna have to make room.
Varsarus  +   2869d ago
It isn't because of read speed, it's because it's based on different technology than DVD, DVD is faster than blu-ray in single layered, but when it's in dual layer, it's speed drops, that results in blu-ray faster than a dual layered DVD, as blu-ray reads the same speed across the entire disk in both single and dual layer (CLV). Now once developers understand blu-ray, them installations will just go away in the future.
tehReaper  +   2869d ago

Ahh, okay. Kudos for clearing it up. I wasn't entirely sure why it had installations, but now I know. Thanks broseph.
THE TERMINATOR  +   2869d ago
Dont give B.S about early build. Wasnt the PS3 version 2 weeks behind the 360? And its still superior, Man the 360 really is a POS.
