Here are some new images of Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
I am not hyped for GTA IV, its going to a great game, but I am tired of it, from the looks of it, other than graphics its just another GTA game. Seriosuly, R* should try something new.
i kinda agree im not that hyped about it. im sure it will be great and sell alot but for some reason. i dont find this game that interesting. but i will probaly get it anyway on my ps3. hope they will show something of this game that makes my hype go up :))
The graphics are not the highlight of GTA4. They've been improved with RAGE, yes. But R* is going to really be pushing for next gen GAMEPLAY. Think about Gears of War; it looks amazing, but is there really anything groundbreaking about the gameplay? It's fun, but, could've been done 4 years ago.
Rockstar isn't hyping the game up either... they are running very subtle ad campaigns and it is everyone else that is hyping it up (including people like me). I think you will be surprised when you play this; I don't think it will be like anything else we've played before... GTA + Physics (Euphoria) = Awesome.
Of course, I could be completely wrong and it could simply be the same game with a facelift. But I doubt that.
Man, I really can't wait to put this into my Xbox 360. This, and the Exclusive DLC, is going to keep me busy for loooong time.
I love how those extra chromosome PS3 fanboys just clicked 'disagree' to your exclusive content comment; but didn't even take the time to explain why they disagreed.
You can't disagree with facts...
I agree man, can't wait put the thing on 360 either. And I can't wait to turn on the talk radio. And PS3 fans, if you want DLC then go get a copy, that way Rockstar may be convinced to make some more new extra content for you. That or you get Getaway and Eight Days from Sony.
I know, one mention of a 360 Exclusive, Exclusive 360 Content, hell anything good that's Xbox 360 and they go nuts.
They must REALLY be pumped full of jealousy.
I love Sony Fans, but damn do I hate their Fanboys.
OH NO SIR, I hope the little Flamers continue to boycott games that go multiplat & form their petitions against games like DMC4 & Grand Theft. Their moronic sense of reasoning (much like their flameboy comments) will backfire when Gaming Companies like Capcom & Rockstar see how positive their Xbox360 software sales are compared to their negative PS3 sales... Go Flamers, Go Flamers !
You don't want COD4, Asssassin's Creed, DMC4, or Grand Theft, they're for XBOTS ! You don't want anything the XBOTS have do you ? You *HATE* the XBOTS - You've got your spec sheet & BluRay !
Go Boycott, Go Boycott, Go Boycott, .. GO !!!
but, I'll tell you why I do.
I'm not yet convinced that "extra content" won't ALREADY be included in the PS3 version.
There IS the extra room on the Blu-ray disc to have the content shipped with the game at launch.
I haven't read anything, anywhere to indicate otherwise.
If someone here can help out with any conclusive information (not opinions or rumors) concerning this I'd really appreciate it.
'Cause I've been holding off my pre-order trying to decide which version to get AND I want to reserve my copy before it's too late. =/
Because Microsoft bought it, in otherwords, it's there's.
It's like publishing a game or buying a Dev house. It's exclusive.
where's the link?
no confirmed information makes it just another rumor. I'm not basing my purchase on heresay =(
BTW, I'm not trying to be difficult, I just wanna be absolutely sure
Also, does anyone know what the content is? 'Cause if it's a different set of cars or new clothes for your character then I don't think I'd bother. That kind of thing doesn't change the gameplay in the least.
However, if it's extra missions or multiplayer gametypes...then I'm sold on the 360 version for sure!
It's extra missions that combine into the main storyline.
There's 2 sets, each one half the size of the original game, both combining to be as big as the original game (GTAIV).
otherwise, links plz?
EDIT: just found this
Any truth to it?
If so, it looks like I'll be getting BOTH versions =/
LOL if you wana waste your money go ahead. just look at the publication date.
279 days 4 hours ago
if you have to get info thats nearly a year old.
MS just reconfirmed last week at e3 that the content was 360 exclusive. i dont see why you would believe angry sony fanboys lies instead of MS themselves. click on the source you gave us. it has nothing but speculation. nothing official
I didn't say the info was official. I even asked if there was any truth to it.
And ya, I'm that desperate for any confirmation, that I'm reading articles that old.
What's my alternative? I ask simple questions that no one has REAL answers for.
Even you gave me the same unsubstantiated response that's basically, "ya, it's exclusive, trust me."
Nothing in your comment proves to me that the 360 content will only be available for that system.
"Exclusive Downloadable Content for 360" might mean just that: only downloadable for 360, since you wouldn't have to DL it for the PS3 version IF it's already included.
It could very well be corporate "newspeak." Kinda like Sony announcing UT3 as "Exclusive." Sure it is but, only technically. What they really mean is something completely different; that UT3 is "Timed Exclusive." You have to admit though, it sounds better for Sony when they make the statement the other way.
Anyhow, I'm really not interested in opinions or rumors, just the facts.
if you dont believe me then look at the 2006 and 2007 microsoft press confrence, in both of them they state there exclusive. and then look at the sony press confrence.they dont even mention anything about it. if they had something to combat the content they 100% would of announced it at last weeks e3.
why would this be included on disk? come on..seriously. R* is gonna be working on this after the game releases. there gonna release this stuff q1 2007 and q3 2007(i think thats what the release dates were) how are they gonna include them on ps3 if they arent even made yet? and why do you ignore the fact that MS payed 50 million dollars for the exclusive content? R* wasnt planning on making the content at all. since T2 has been having money problems recently MS payed them to create content for 360 exclusively. you gotta remember that this content was announced as exclusive nearly 2 years before gta4 launches. and to date nothing has been announced for ps3. wich i remind you is exactly 3 months away. :D :D :D
now dont get confused though, ps3 WILL have DLC.. its just not gonna be anything as huge as the content MS payed for.
oh sorry about that. i meant q1 08..q3 08.. NOT 07
I like the way it looks actually and the explosion on the 2nd page, the final picture...that was so cool looking.
or DOES MICROSHAFT HAVE A BUNCH [email protected]
Is it just me, or are you an idiot?
Us 360 owners are proud of ALL the games we get and enjoy discussing them, you'd be the same if you didn't have to wait so long for games.
Please see above.
For homophobic language.
I really don't think this game will need any hype at all to sell well.
But I really like them
So seeing them again doesn't hurt any.
I think this game is going to re-revolutionize the Sandbox Genre in terms of interactivity
Rockstar don't prove me wrong
I can honestly foresee a room full of drunken friends doing nothing but hanging on the back of trucks to see how injured they can be.
- Stand on top of truck
- Fire at driver
- Hang onto back for joy ride
- Fling off at perfect time: Off a bridge, towards an oncoming car, see if human enertia can break a streetlight.
- Let go an soar into a crowd of unsuspecting pedestrians... brilliant, the human missile tactic.
FIRST OF ALL DON'T BE FU*KING ALL PISSED OFF BECAUSE WE WHO SPEND MONEY ON OR EXTRA CONTENT GET THE GOOD SHI* AND YOU GUYS ONLY GET CRAP SHI*. YOU KNOW WHAT IF YOU DONT LIKE THAT WE GET ALL THE GOOD SHI* ON XBOX THEN TAKE YOUR HAPPY LITTLE AS*ES OUT AND BUY YOURSELF A GOD DAM* XBOX 360 AND THEN JUST MAYBE WE WONT HAVE TO LISTEN TO YOU FU*KING WHINE ABOUT THAT YOU AREN'T GETTING THE SAME CONTENT UNTILL THEN KEEP YOUR FU*KING MOUTHS SHUT AND QUIT BITC*ING
this game is gonna be awesome on the ps3 and xbox..
so the river flows both ways. And its not like the DLC will be free, you'll have to buy it. As for getting a 360, I would but it'd prolly break before the game came out so no.
i guess you missed the video of phil harrison saying how sony is working with rockstar for content as well.
I personally find the Sony fanboys to be amusing, myopic and very close minded... but you; you really communicated this point like a true gentleman.
I love GTA games, but so far the trailers of this one have looked crap.
The frame rate just looks $H!t. I hope they can smooth this out for the final release.
i like gta games and will probably get this game, but nothing i've seen from this game looks that great. they still have yet to show us gameplay
These are the pics from That German site that was post the other day. I knew they were just pics of a better build or just better quality. That thread was a flame trap.
Rockstar has NEVER shown us early gameplay of the GTA series- so relax. The game is gonna rock, the graphics, while not mind-blowing, will serve its purpose in immersing you into possibly one of the best action/story driven games on consoles. And gameplay... Look Rockstar has a TRACK record. Okay. I mean just look up any of the previous scores for GTA and you'll see that the game is CONSISTENT. Don't get all panicky just because Rockstar has only released two movies and a handful of screens. That's just what they've ALWAYS been doing, man.
It's just like the Halo series. They don't want to release to much info, pics and vids because they want the game to be surprising and new. They don't want to ruin the experience beforehand, which I think is a good idea.
Can,t wait to try this game out.
Btw Rockstar has DLC for the PS3 version. The 360 version will get extra missions/episodes, the PS3 version will get extra areas added onto Liberty City.
Both versions will be great guys! MS bought the right to earlier content that was exclusive to the 360, but the PS3 version will also get DLC (Just different to the 360's). Rockstar haven't broken the terms of the exclusive by doing this. It mentioned nothing about PREVENTING the release of content for the PS3, just that the 360 would get exclusive content (Rockstar will just put out different content for the PS3 version, thus not breaking their terms of agreement).
Rockstar don't play by anyone elses rules, they play by their own. They don't follow the same marketing schemes as other companies, they just let the game sell itself when it's released. GTA4 will sell big time without hype from R* and they know that.
Don't expect Rockstar to play nice with MS because they got $50 million from them. I like R* and the way they do business. It would be exactly the same if Sony had paid them for content...
havent the recent gtas been hailed as the greatest games? i know from the magazines i read san andreas recieved the highest game ever, in gamesmaster it got 98%
i dont see whats going to be different about this one, its gonna ROCk for whatever system you get it for.

To see which 1 im buying but im leaning more toward the ps3 ver. if there both gonna get extra content let know wut it is and how much your gonna charge 4 it??
If its just 1 or 2 missions i dont think its worth an extra $10-$20
If the ps3 rumors r true and u extra city then thats worth more because once u pass a level u pass a level u can always return to new portions of the city.
So still up im the air till more info.
I dunno how much the DLC will cost for either 360 or PS3.
You won't be getting an extra city lol.
This is what I heard: "it would be like imagining Liberty City as an island with the extra areas linking to it".
I'm guessing the extra areas expand the city but won't make the map twice as big if you see what I mean. They'll be good detailed small additions to the map. Well worth it I might add.
The 360 will have extra episodes to download, which sounds awesome. I think as MS paid $50 million for the extra content the 360 will have quite a few episodes (I think possibly 3 or 4).
Of course there'll be a wait for the PS3 content as R* will be doing the 360 content first (Due to the exclusivity).
So 360 guys you'll get your fix first. PS3 guys, like myself, will have to wait (Unless the content is included, but I highly doubt that)
Still, GTA4, awesome game!
Why did anyone that love the series play GTA?
Even early on the PC, when I used to play it Top-Down view, it has always been about the Gameplay and violence, straight up.
Took me a while to get VICE city, but I played the game on the PS2 and beat it, and no I did not buy it on the XBOX even though, I seen it and it looked much more polished. The 80's scene, music/radio stations and environment made Vice City memorable. That's probably why , I enjoyed more than San Andreas. Hey, I'm old-school.
When I see games early to mid development, I know, the graphics will be there in the end. I'm more interested in what you can do now. Of course the PS3 can allow for bigger maps because of the Blue-ray paying dividends. The 360 will be getting Extra stuff but I'm not sure what that is, hopefully it's worth it.
GTA is pure adult oriented gameplay fun. Graphics come after. that's just me.
On this Article, well yeah the pics don't look so great, oh well the game is not polished I'm sure. The hype of this game went down the tubes, well quite frankley it's a Multi-platform game and we know how much love they get on here.
I was hooked by the free-roam aspect of GTA. The main reason it's become such a huge hit series.
I played on the PC version first, round my cousin's house and was hooked just getting used to the controls, then I got used to driving round, 'jacking buses and ploughing through police roadblocks lol.
So I followed the series ever since. GTA3 is my favourite in the series simply because it was the first 3D version and I remember clearly the amount of hype up to release. Loved the story, the islands, the radio stations (Chatterbox lol) and the whole game pretty much.
Favourite radio stations ppl?
f... the dlc.
just give me the game for the ps3 and let me finish it and then blow up liberty city with alot of wonderfull cheats.
its going to rock on both platforms
