Less than 2 hours left. I'm excited. ARE YOU??
I didn't know there was a 4th one coming out!
I only just got Vice City Stories.
Where's it gonna be set?
I bet italy.
Or south america.
What's the point in that? The Xbox controller is shite for gta.
And with the 360 theyve realised that the PS2 controller is the epitome of controller design, and have just tried to copy it as far as possible without being sued
where the 360 will have 'exclusive content' that won't be available on PS3 -I'm guessing a few more guff remote controll helicopter minigames, joy!
As for location, I heard it was going to be all of Europe or something.
will be available on both.
unless there's different exclusive content for each 'platform'.
also all this downloadable content will probably be released with the inevitable pc release anyway
that won't be availiable on the 360
the most probable ones are an updated liberty city or the near-future city from GTA2.
I hope we get some countyside like in SA though.
I doubt it'd be Liberty City, they've already done it twice. Perhaps a totally fresh one?
Reading (get stuck on the IDR)
At sea (though this might be interesting? Grand Theft Lilo?)
Rotherham (missions for the chuckle brothers? no slacking)
I'm not staying up for nothing...
It should be good. I was pissed off when Vice City and San Andreas had no graphical updates (largely because the crummy PS2 wouldn't run anything better).
So, I'd like to see lots of nice flash cars which actually handle properly and also I'd like to see a decent damage model for once. And has anyone played Saint's Row?? Shite game but the way the pedestrians bounce off the bonnet is hilarious, so some of that please.
Or rather, I've admired it's simplicity.
The fun for me is in its expanse. The fact that it's YOUR game. The fact that you don't have to follow set routes unlike other games.
a myspace bulletin about this. im sure its gonna be a massive tease but i still cant wait.
say that Rockstar said it will be a full-length trailer. Woot.
please be good.
i thought this'd happen
just totally died!
Best laid plans n all that!
the auto aim/one stick motion on vice city made it almost impossible for me to play in the later stages.
i much preferred the Saints Row dual stick, first person shooter style controls
forums have also died. can't access the gta IV threads at all. shiiit.
Maybe just an update from the original GTA III then?
That's a bit weird. What do they look like?? Graphics- wise?
about halfway down i think
you can't tell it's Liberty City just off them.
I hope they get rid of all this gangsta shit too, when they added all that in it lost a LOT of it's appeal.
It looks gorgeous based on them though..
and of course liberty city will be expanded so much it no longer bears any resemblance to the original.
Should be amazing.
Hopefully lots of countryside.
and its out in 7 months.
If they had anything near the scale of san andreas i'd be stunned.
doesn't mean that's all it'll be.
They haven't shown any interiors, yet I'm positive there's going to plenty of those...
To be honest, I'd have never believed that they could've done something like San Andreas if you'd told me about it beforehand.
but it's happened.
I'm bored of conjecture.
GTA 4 ain't gonna be large.
Accept it. Embrace it.
One thing I am sure about is that there's going to be plenty more surprises before the game is released.
I've already had enough surprises regarding this game. Whhhooooo.
Almost too many surprises, they're weighing me down. AaaHHHhhhh. Surprises!!!
as if they hadn't created anything that you hadn't seen yet.
Its optimistic to start thinking that they can make something as large as SA because they did it on the PS2 after 5-6 years with the format.
And it looks nice. Like, really nice. Uber shadows and stuff. And you play as a Russian man it seems. It is indeed Liberty City, but it looks way improved.
Can't wait. I hope it's 360 exclusive. That would make my day :D
it's actually new york isn't it?
I'm astounded, it looks incredible. definitely a reason to get a 360 (or ps3)
looks fucking awesome.
i hope there's more activity on the streets in the final version though
time spent on this one will likely have been in adapting and upgrading the engine for the new consoles; so no, I doubt that there'll have been time to build a world the size of San Andreas in this 'un. The countryside was a massive draw, though, so I wouldn't be surprised if they extend the playing area outside of the city at least some way.
As for extra/downloadable content across systems: they'll be haggling over this until launch day, and it'll probably all come out pretty much the same anyway. Wonder if we'll finally see some visuals that push the PS3 harder than the 360..
though maybe not quite the scale of San Andreas. Also it did get a bit annoying taking 15 minutes to drive from one side of the map to another.
I doubt there'll be too much difference visually between the ps3/360 at this stage, seeing as it's the first game they've done for this generation.
I loved the countryside bits in SA, and I really hope that they can do more with that than just make fancier-looking grass or whatever. I'd like to see wildlife, and maybe just some more fun stuff hidden around the place. SA felt spread a bit thin sometimes (although that was part of the appeal in itself).
maybe you could kill animals n sell them. or eat them. (bit Oblivion-esque though).
What would be ideal is multiplayer co-op over xbox live- it's definitely possible, Crackdown's managed to do it.
