It's been suggested that just because GTA IV concentrates on a single city as opposed to an entire state it's not going to be a very big game world. The guys at Gamesradar.com are not so sure. And they used Google Maps to prove it.....
Speculative but still valid I guess. "The game will be huge with little detail, the game will be small with too much detail", people always have something to gripe about.
We will see just how good DVD9 is because im 100% sure thats their bottleneck... It will be nothing bigger then previous GTA's... If they do it however, it would be REALLY impressive... Also I wonder how they are doing the consoles. Porting, or seperate teams.. Will Ps3 have full install, partial? Will the 360 have it as well? Seriously I have no idea how they would make both versions shine. 1 version is going to get shafted, guess which one?
have lots of copys of the same data on it ! content will be the same. both discs will be full.
Content will most likley be copies twice on the Blu-ray, but in no way will the Blu-ray be full. Blu-ray is only about 1/3 slower then DVD-9.
lol get your facts straight. A single layer blu-ray disc has a faster transfer rate than a double-layer DVD.
blueray isnt fast enough to stream????? were did you get your info from??? the xbox360 forum??
What does a guy have to do here to get some freaking negative feedback...... I think i'm better off trashing the PS3... Alright $5 a bubble.. I only need one, PM me with the info and i'll send a check..
simple be a bastard, don't sit and be a gutton for punishment. Go act like a serious fanboy and they'll be taken away. Positive feedback ;)
i smell a multiple disk announcement comin up for the 360 version. but maybe not.
I guess i can see why you only have one bubble. Even with only 1 chance to comment you can't muster anything approaching intelligence. If anything it will be a big swapfile and no diskswapping.
how big was saints row? they said the ps3 version of that'll be bigger..
Saints Row is not very big in my opinion. Although, I enjoyed it more than the GTA's that are out now. I'm assuming that GTA IV is going to be much much bigger than Crackdown but a little less than twice as big as Saints Row.
After looking at the Google maps link I can say it's going to be waaaay smaller than that! Rockstar themselves said it's going to be smaller than San Andreas... bronx is easily the size of San Andreas. They also said only "core" features of each borough will be there.
I agree! The districts or areas in each of the previous GTA games has been a charicature of the actual area. Basically put in the obvious features of the area and then trim down the boring stuff so there's not so much of it.
im scarred that rockstar might fuk this one up...this is the first time they have changed th engine for GTA...smaller than san andres??? i was expectig something huge...
With a name like VGjunkie you should realize that GTA started as a topdown scroller. Therefore GTA has gone through engine changes before. It will probibly not be as big as San Andreas. I believe the word was that what they used to do RStar Presents: Table Tennis was the core of the engine which they used to do the physics engine for the new GTA engine. So I imagine that it is the same engine only they have been working and tweeking (this is obviously 360 only speculation since the PS3 processes things a little different due to architecture and data handling differences.)
