1UP: Grand Theft Auto 4 PC Preview

1UP writes: "Grand Theft Auto IV's huge -- no doubt about it. But a select section of gamers still hasn't played the game because it hasn't yet hit their platform of choice: PC. Well, it's coming -- and at a recent hands-on press event, we got the chance to check out some extra features Rockstar hopes will make the PC version well worth the wait.

First, players will be able to use the keyboard, mouse, and gamepad at the same time. What this means is that if you choose to plug in a 360 controller (sacrilege, I know), you'll be able to drive or move with the gamepad but can also quickly switch to the mouse if you wanna execute some precision shooting. Some PC gamers may hate the idea of using a console controller, and you don't have to use it, but it actually works quite well in this instance. I personally watched 1UP executive previews editor Thierry Nguyen easily switch to the mouse when he wanted pixel-perfect aim for headshots, then quickly change back to the controller setup when he got behind the wheel."
