TVGB: "..if GTA's sales on the last generation of consoles is any indication on what's in store eight days from now, Rockstar's first major attempt at online multiplayer in a GTA game could be the next big thing in online play."
i think the ps3 will out sell x box and be played a hell of a lot more on PSN
psn must be a pretty lonely place if you are here trolling this thread.
another eXploding xFlop 360 in that main GTA4 photo!:D
Wow.. You're actually trolling 360 news. For that. Enjoy waiting for you're 'so called' AAA titles. They'll never come. Along with in game XMB, in game music! and more! GT5P is broken.. crappy physics, shocking online! When is killzone 2 due? this year? hahahahaha! NO. I'll enjoy a first class service with stunning AAA titles. While you WAITB3YOND.
jealous they didn't mention PSN
PSN will probably get more GTA action, as the no life xbots seem to get obsessed with either gaylo 3 or cod4
its gonna be awesome. I hope it can work like Burnout Paradise with no loading screens. That would be amazing
I'm not going to google for you, it's very easy, just type in "gta iv auto aim" and then read up for example!
I hope Live can work with all this pressure without going down or suffering with the usual lag. Christmas was pretty bad.
I'm not so sure. It will have online racing with dodgy driving controls and online shooting with snap-on auto-aim. Jack of all trades.
when did you play it? I`m just curious.
I read the reviews and previews.
Where did it say all this? Cause it sounds like your interpretation/opinion of GTAIV. GTAIV has gotten all 10/10`s, No game is PERFECT. But 10/10 doesn`t scream "tacked on" online.
It doesn't scream "tacked on" but it certianly doesn't scream "we have been doing multiplayer for ears" either. I am buying GTA 4 for PS3, and it won't be a hit on Live or PSN.
I think it'll be a great game, but not so sure about the online. I may buy it for the campaign but the online.. Hmm.. Not so sure.
I'll surely try out the online feature, It sounds pretty fun, I think everyone should at least try it once.
It wouldn't suprise me at all. I will be picking it up early that day so I can get online before everyone gets on and it becomes unplayable as the day goes on. At least within the first few weeks it will definitely be the most played but we will have to wait and see if it has the staying power of a game like Call of Duty 4.
with you having NO avatar?
I typically only get on this site at work and since I'm lucky to even be able to access the site I don't worry about the extras.
if the metal gear solid beta fiasco is anything to go by, i think GTA4 should have done a beta to test server stress. upcoming n4g news: OMG I CANT Dl THE PATCH TO PLAY ONLINE GTA4 OMGZ HELLA LAGS OMGZ'D NOT EVEN MY GRANDMA CAN LOGIN! HOLY CANOLY, IT'S BEEN A MONTH AND SERVERS STILL AINT FIXXORED and the obligatory "PS3 version won't get patch till 2 months later after 360 version"
Unlike Konami who decided to use their own servers, R* most likely will be using Sony's clusters, which has been proven through Warhawk and other games to provide 0 problems with lag from launch. *see image*
they dont mention online play on the ps3 because the psn is a joke a free service that no 1 plays on and it will this way forever the psn will never have as big community as the 360 never =) we wil alwys exprienc emore packed games and a wide variety of games to play online wile the ps3 has to have the multiplatform flavor of the month (cod4 most played game on psn) if u log on the psn and put in any of their multiplayer games you would find thwere are no games coming up (haha i know this hurts) cause every 1 on the psn is playing cod4 whilst on the 360 ppl are playing halo 3,cod4,r6v2,lostplanet,gears of war and many mopre and u will always find ful lobby in those games unlike the ps3 network i know i have a ps3
RFOM w/ 40 online smooth as butter, was a joke. ok.....
Thats because PS3 owners play games they enjoy. And just because we don't enjoy the same games as you guys, no need to say the service sucks. We get our fair share of downloads, for what we pay for.. nothing. And hell Sony gives us our Firmware updates alowing us to improve our experience. So what if we don't have the same number of shooters you have, we still have fun.
this coming from an illiterate :/
GTA 4 doesn't strike me as a multiplayer powerhouse at all. The online game will be a welcomed distraction from the single player campaign, nothing more.
You really aren`t thinking that comment through.
I'm not so sure about that. With the numbers COD4 are posting, it'll be hard to de-throne that game. But hey, it's all speculation and your guess is as good as mine ;)
No one ever thought CoD would beat out Halo either but it happened. Most the people I know are buying it cause of the online. Hell half of them dont even like gta games. They are just excited about the sandbox style play in an online game. However I doubt it will dethrone CoD over night cause CoD at 5 or 6 million sold now. So it will take a time for gta 4 to sell enough copies
It will more than likely get all my multiplayer attention for at least a few weeks. Halo 3 and Call of Duty will be taking a backseat for a while.
it will be the most played game on live. It's one of the most wanted games coming out this year.
whoever wrote this is the smartest person alive.................NOT Of course its going to be big until something better comes along.
Thank you Captain Obvious.
More played on Just in live? Who else thing this is going to give chalenge to the NO laggy PSN. ^^ I really love how i've never had lag on my Ps3, but alot of people will be playing GTA4, so it may happen.
itll be most played not only on LIVE, but PSN. but i guess nobody cares....
We're all gonna play and have fun, either on Live or PSN.
I've not played the game, but no other multiplayer coming out sounds remotely as fun as GTA4. Four dudes driving along in a car shooting out of the windows... MGO is just a shooter. GTA4 is a huge virtual playground of mayhem. Guns, vehicles, cops etc. Now, I'm not saying GTA4 is going to be better than MGO. BUT right at this moment in time (for me) GTA4 sounds better.
Lets just hope that GTA4 multiplayer will actually be playable at time of release ;D
By the time I get into the multiplayer it would have already settled down a bit. I'm playing through the single player before I get into the online.
GTA IV will most likely take people away from being online for the first week at least :P
I'd love to know how much money in total you have spent playin on xbox live?? $100 $200 guess how much iv'e spent to play games online on my ps3 $0 when converted to pounds i think it comes to £0 im not sure can people confirm for me :D
Thank god I don't have PSN, or I would be lonely and constantly playing with myself.
How many people have told you not to play madden online you sore loser!!!! Warhawk, Resistance, Motorstorm, Call Of Duty 4 (The Game Dat Brought Master Cheif To His Knees) Thats What You Should Play When You Can Afford A PS3 lolz!!!!
ARE lonely and DO play w/ your self. Anyway, I never NOT been able to play a match @ full capacity on any game. So.......is that NOT good enough?
And dude u really need to get yourself a girl m8t if your playin wiv yourself lmao!!!!
65% of 360 owners are on Live and it cost $50 a year, only 50% on PSN and it's free. Have a nice day fellas
Wow!!! $50 ever think that you could get GTA4 wiv dat on ps3 and play online for free lol!!! or worse u cud get halo 3 (Ewwwwwwwwwwwwww!!!!)
ive been waiting 4yrs for this game 4yrs and now its only 7days left omg i cant wait i want to play it i want it :)
PSN - 1000 members playing GTAIV Live - 8.3 million members playing GTAIV
Of course it might,it will be one of the ONLY very few good games out for the Lagbox 360 this year!;) $hane
Considering Live counts ALL games being played from every 360 connected, single or multi, I think thats a pretty much given. Roll on the weekend :) Think I get my copy on Saturday, fingers crossed (I'm good friends with the local Argos manager)
But to dethrone Halo 3, and CoD4 !!! That is a hard task to do. To compete with Online Giants who have been doing this for years, will only take time. Impress me GTA4, i might buy you then
lol you think? i think everyone will be playing it lol.. nobody will play any other game besides those who don't have the money to buy this game :) tbh.. i think both PSN and XLive servers will crash from the massive amount of people playing it!!
It may take the top spot for a short time, but I cant see it dominating COD4 and Halo 3 for very long. I suppose we shall have to wait and see though.
i cant wait to see the population on live and my xbox360's eruption with red lights or perhaps even fire =(
