Rockstar has released a new performance enhancing update for Grand Theft Auto IV, now available for download.
no console update? lol,as if
Yeah, boohoo for Rockstar trying to fix one of the worst console ports in the history of console ports. My machine plays Crysis but not GTA IV. Good job, Rockstar. It looks half as good and runs like a55. But I won't re-install all that Rockstar Social Club and Windows Live crap just to find out that the update still gives me a choppy game.
I believe the update was already released for consoles, or at least i updated a few weeks ago on PS3.
All you need is a decent CPU, and the game runs fine. A Phenom II X3 720 and 8800 will be more than enough for Crysis 2.
Man, f*ck rockstar and their "updates", the last update I had to download from them took out the parachute glitch in TBoGT, which was one of the funnest things in that game. I guess for some reason they can't see that fun=sales...
LOL @ PC fanboys with the disagrees, sorry that I mentioned a console :O
Update? Why? This game is old. It came and passed.
and new content for the game just came out for the pc and ps3 versions today they should drop support for it? stfu man
Who gives a f*ck if it's old. So is ICO. GTA4 is awesome, it's still among the games I'd recommend to people who are looking for good games to play.
CHRIS_TC what specs have you got gta IV runs good on my pc i have quad core 3.7ghz 6gb ati 5750 and runs max out at about 50-60fps not that games any good the epsisodes are well better.
It's always good for a game to receive updates. Just because the games "old", doesn't mean that it can't have updates anymore. Diablo 2 received an update not long ago, you know.
GTAIV, despite being a fairly crappy port is still the best on PC - i actually own all three versions, PC, PS3 and 360 - aside from the better graphics, resolution and performance, you get fantastic modding ability. I already played The lost and damned on 360, but i ordered the episodes of liberty city on PC - should be here with me soon..
"The Moon has been implemented with simulated lunar phases" all this moments in GTA 4 and i never noticed that there was no moon ...
cant even run this game with a oced q6600 and a gtx 280.
Boredom I feel after playing this soulless game for more than 5 minutes? San Andreas > GTA4
But damn it rapes PCs. I had to get a Quad Core to get this game running at a smooth frame rate, and I don't even have everything jacked up detail wise.
