Gameplayer has just posted a new story which addresses some of the comments made in yesterdays multiplayer hands-on preview. It relates to the quality of the network code.
weather effects will stand out above all else. It competetly changes the feel of the game.
PLAYED ONT HE XBOX LIVE and is he was amamzed with the connectivity of xbox live while playing gta 4 it just shows what ppl have been saying xbox live is a higher serveive than any opther console online service as it offers ppl a lag free expreince unlike when i play on myt psn it laggss a lot and i can never get full matches and the waiting time is soo annoying to join a match on the psn and it lags a lot just my experience
what are you playing then? I mean COD4 works like a charm, I never had a problem. So i am happy.
I'm betting it'll lag like a b**** EDIT - how many people are playing GTA online? Like 5? Once its released is what I mean. I was gunna send you a PM but since you felt the need to verbally assault me, here: http://www.n4g.com/up/8341/... A crazed avid Sony fan like yourself should take interest
"the game speed was so fluid and lag-free" ... nice way of promoting your blog...a very good blog at that Edit: no scratch that...xbox sucks is what i meant to say.
now you are saying because xbox live is better than psn, that makes GTA4 on 360 superior to GTA4 on PS3?? It's the same dam game!! yes i agree LIVE is a more complete online experiece, but it is not some magical entity that makes a game more superior! that IS the dumbest argument i have yet to come across on this site. You went to a whole new level man! And cnets opinion on which controller is best?! Yep that makes it WAY more superior(giggle!)on the 360. SNAP! SNAP! Wake up, come back to planet earth! DLC doesn't make a game superior, it's just a nice bonus
What? You didn't know? Even if the game has no online, all MS has to do is put "LIVE" on the game case and it has a better frame rate, better graphics, extra content, etc. by default. Get with the times. PSN is like, so last year.
Maybe there's no lag when your playing 4 vs 4 but when you throw 16 people together all trying to shoot each other I'm guessing its going to get a little messy. We'll have to wait and see, lets just hope Rockstar pull something out of the hat. Nether the less, I'll love this game.
8 v 8 could prove to be too much
im in love with this game ive been waiting 4 yrs for this game and theres only 18 more days ohhh cant wait im so excited then ever before i want ittttttt nowwww :D
if the online is good, this might be the last game i buy until the Holidays. I plan to put in months on this game, it better not let me down!
ok who ever lives in NYC no need to leave ur house cause GTA IV can do all that thing for you u guys know what i mean right ;)
i want to know if there will be snow in New York that will be awesome. too hardware intensive methinks though
i think so im not sure yet
i wanna tell u guys something and be honest with me who here is still looking at the GTA IV images and videos cause im always looking at them and watching the videos over and over again until the game releases :)
that my friend is a little to much... im not going all star wars nerdyness over a video game!
me. the game plagues my mind every so often. im riding in a car while it turns, and i think wow the characters in the game will actually lean to counter the effect of gravity. i always think of just walking around the city, not doiing anything but taking it all in. the game has got me more hyped than MGS4, which no game ever should have done by rights.
Why don't we all wait and see, if its lag free or not, or which console will sell more etc. etc. All these questions will be answered in what 18 days ;)
18 days :(
I think he mean't 8 days til reviews start pouring out.
Sorry mate, it was typographical error:( Yeah hopefully I guess the first review will come out on 22nd:p So fingers crossed:D
I bet I never get a chance to actually play the multiplayer... i never even finished San Andreas SP, and I doubt i'll finish gta4's.
I don't think many people are able to finish GTA's each and every mission. I mean seriously a 100 hours, is too much, I mean we do have a life as well.
the only GTA i ever finished was san andreas. i don't know what made me do it, but i just said the hell with it, sat down one day and was determined to get to the end. it was the first gta i completed, and it will be the last cuz, whew!!!, it took forever, i can't imagine trying with this one.
san andreas was the only one i completed also and yeah i bet gta4 will take ages to complete which is good
I want this game so bad !! I literally stoped reading anything and everything about GTA4... I'm dying !! I'm Dying !!!
Live is THAT good. PSN sucks. You get what you pay for.
there is a reason why they shoul dthe multiplayer on the 360 to get the best 1st look exprience the psn lags wayyyyyy more than the 360 that is a fact wel know to most excpet sonydroids and fanboys ggameplayer has 1s again conmfirmed it there is no lag on gta 4 xbox 360 version dont cry dry ur eyes people its just games the 360 is better than the ps3 its known
Okay so now a SANDBOX game can run lag free online and yet so many online fps can't.
calm down aaron just 18 more days no need to panic :)
no, no, no...its too long ! i want it now, now , now !
there both good ok
