GTA 4: Let's Not Get Carried Away

Rockstar Games proved to be very ambitious with the size of San Andreas. The map was amazingly big, but it was also drastically empty. The countryside featured nothing of special interest, neither did the huge desert section and this is arguably the reason Rockstar have decided to make GTA 4's Liberty City smaller, but much more detailed.

The story is too old to be commented.

because I'm bored and say that DVD9 constricted it to be a smaller city. If they did this game only for the PS3 since it has blu-ray, The City would be much larger with the same amount of detail. DVD9 is constricting the full potential of GTA4

FLAME!!!! AHAHAHAHA!!!!

Rockstar may not admit it, but DVD9 is restricting them.

It may have been empty, but it made car chases really fun. I can't wait to have a big car chase in GTA 4, it'll be like the Bourne Ultimatum. :)

That film owned! but did i miss the end?

The ending basically revealed what i thought we knew from the first film....

LOVE the ending music though when he is in the sea!!

Rockstar didn't decide, they were forced to scale the game down to fit on the 360's 7 GB DVD and lack of standard harddrive.

PS2 had 4.5/9 GB DVDs last gen.
Xbox had 4.5/9 GB DVDs last gen.
PS3 has 25/50 GB BluRay discs this gen.
360 has 3.5/7 GB DVDs this gen - 1.5 to 2 or so is lost to some sort of DRM.

It is shocking to think that the 360 actually has less storage than last gen consoles. And with the lack of standard harddrive, Rockstar is obviously having to downgrade the game to work on the 360.

Xbox got DVD9 which means it can store up to 9gb, but the part about it uses up some of it space for various stuff (drm probably like you mentioned) only 7gb are usable.

DVD9 is three times better than PS3 because see it has 9 where as the PS3 has a 3. Simple fact 9>3

edit: @uh_what, you are right, I didnt write it because it might hurt some people real bad. DVD has 9000 MB while BD-ROM only has 50 GB

Douchebaggery3580d ago

BD-ROM doesn't even have a number so it must be really sh!tty

Kenshin_BATT0USAI3580d ago

LMAO 9000>50.

BUt whao wait a sec isn't 9000MB only 9gb and 50gb only 50gb damn blu-ray has such a small disc size.

(sarcasm)

I really, really, really, really hope that you're joking. Because if you aren't, that is THE most retarded post that I have seen on this site.

barom3580d ago

hahahah even X360 supporters would be ashamed of you dude.

Figboy3580d ago

the fact that a few of you guys actually think he's not being facetious disturbs me.

i mean, it wasn't even sarcasm he was using, he was just being silly and absurd. that should have been enough of a giveaway.

jeebus. some people take *EVERYTHING that others say so seriously.
