  1. I was in a heli & even flew "out to sea" where there were no cops, but the circle just followed me & always stayed

    centered on me.

    When my kid did it she ended up on foot & just kept running under the bridges by the airport.

    The best way to evade the cops is to go on a boat and just speed around all the islands.

  2. If you take pics with your camera phone, you can't view any images you have taken but you can use the photos taken to see people criminal record using the police computer. By selecting Search by photo

  3. Xbox Live bigwig Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb has said more than 2 million Achievements were unlocked for Grand Theft Auto IV in just 24 hours, totalling over a whopping 15 million Gamerpoints.

    Hryb shared the figures in his latest podcast on his blog where, unsurprisingly, the Xbox Live Activity chart for the week showed GTA IV as the most played game by those signed into the online service.

    We're promised many more exciting Xbox 360 GTA IV facts and figures by Hryb in the future.

    Later today, or early tomorrow, we should see the UK All Formats Top 40 published, featuring presumably record-breaking sales for the Rockstar game. It will also show us which of the two versions proved most popular.

  4. Once you get in the truck, make a waypoint to the nearest Pay N Spray but make sure the cops aren't following you. If they do, then make a waypoint to the other Pay N Spray or just run around town until you lose the cops and return back to it.

    I had trouble with this for awhile, but all I did was drive the truck by the old hospital, and get out safley to another car, and drive of without the cops seeing you and it worked.

  5. No one in the world has GTA IV, people who have GTA IV is people who has downloaded it ilegally like 'paks' has.

    So I do think we should not help people who has it before the 29th because we will be helping people who have got it ilegally, which I don't think Rockstar will like.

    No one? So, how Chris played it? Illegally?!

    Gimme a break.

    Chris has played it courtesy of Rockstar, but he doesn't own it. But im talking about people who have downloaded it ilegally.

  6. Mark, go over to your mates mates house and check if he actually got it. Right now, I'm thinking it's a lie.

    I would but they live up in Scotland. But I know for a fact theres a chance you can get it a day early, because Chris on here as told me months ago, that Play.com sends orders and gets stuff like a day before the actual release, so it couyld be monday, plus they work in Tescos and he said that they have tons of copies, which I don't believe because every store is supposed to have limited stock levels for GTA IV

  7. Its far too late now, I am not sure if you even turn up at the store you will get a copy, I've heard that my nearby games shops are sold out, but I am not sure if thats pre-orders or everything. Just ask GAME or someone how many copies are going on normal sale.

    I was told yesterday by the manager in GAME that there is gonna be limited copies for normal sale, maybe around 5 per store, and they are not allowed to refer or save any copy for anyone except for those who has preordered. But if you do want to try in a store, you will have to be down there before the store opens, or else you will most likely not get a copy for a month.

  8. i have order Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3) from ebay but the person carnt get it till 13th may. is there any were in the uk that i will get it on the 29th?

    Ye you are too late I just looked at the popular stores online every single one is out of stock. but there is still some available from HMV, but its the special edition.

  9. If Microsoft has one thing going for them that no fanboy rant can question, it's Xbox LIVE. As long as Nintendo has friend codes and Sony has, uhhh, we'll get back to that, Microsoft stands tall on their untarnished pedestal. Well...untarnished if you ignore the month+ of outages around Christmas 2007. The fact of the matter is, Xbox LIVE has failed the consumer public before. And it could fail us again.

    Jump ahead to next week, we have GTA IV—a game that's so big that—we'll let Microsoft's General Manager of LIVE Services Operations, Derek Ingalls explain that metric:

    "...we are preparing for a spike that could be much larger than what we saw with the launches of Halo 3 and Activision's "Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare."

    So how is Microsoft prepping Xbox LIVE for the not so metaphorical mass rioting that is GTA IV multiplayer?

    "Last holiday we weren't properly prepared," Ingalls admits. "So we are going the extra mile with Grand Theft Auto IV..." Yeah, that was total marketing speak. But it got your ears perked, didn't it?

    "The biggest step we've taken is to add in more server hardware, which will expand the service's capacity," Ingalls explains to us through email. (PR had explained earlier that he was "obviously very busy" this week.) "We have actually doubled our capacity for concurrent users over the last 2 months."

    The backbone of Xbox LIVE is an interesting point in itself. It's not one big pile of computers, but two big piles of computers. The LIVE-exclusive servers are in Seattle, while LIVE piggybacks off other Microsoft servers in Quincy, Washington. Ingalls jokes that security includes "tubes you must step into with bio-metric devices such that you must lay your hand on a reader for fingerprint identification before it will allow you out of the ejection tube."

    And, of course, no shorts are allowed. (We're guessing it's the copious amounts of programmer leg hair, but consider that point unconfirmed.)

    However, the server upgrades at Microsoft's datacenters are just part of their preparation. They have extra staff working longer hours this week. And those updates you've been receiving on LIVE?

    "... are part of an ongoing effort to get ahead on capacity issues," Ingalls explained. "We learned a lot from last holiday and have a comprehensive plan we are executing upon throughout the year to prevent any recurrence of issues like we experienced. That said, we would be remiss to not expect and respect that the "Grand Theft Auto IV" release is anticipated to impact usage in a positive way."

    Yeah, those updates are totally about Grand Theft Auto IV—this week at least. Because a free copy of Undertow won't quell a few million teenagers looking to break some faces, steal some shit and drive around with their music really, really loud.

    As for what Sony is doing to prepare—their fate lies in the hands of Rockstar (who rumor has it is actually using Gamespy's servers). Because they don't offer a backend to host games like Xbox LIVE, they avoid the headache for a trade-off of a little risk, and almost no say in fixing potential problems that may arise.

    Even Ingalls, knowing everything they've done to prepare, is a bit nervous.

    "We know the launch of GTA IV will be a wildly successful day for Rockstar, for LIVE, and for our customers... and hopefully, just another day for operations."

  10. He deserved it. Now there is nothing he can do to fix it, is there?

    He could always phone up Microsoft to say that his xbox has got the 3 red lights, then they will send a courier round and pickup and deliver the 360 for free, but they do have it for awhile. Thats what they did with my mate, but they did give him a brand new 360 because it was dead.

  11. i think it only australia getting the unedited version :thumbsdown:

    No the US and Europe are getting the unedited version, so that means nothing has been cut.

    But with Australia and New Zealand, you will be getting the edited version, which means something from your version has been cut.

  12. Yeah I am, I should have checked when I was up there a few weeks ago. I'll just have to wait until I get home to play it :(

    Heres the list of GAME stores BTW - http://www.game.co.uk/gtastores/

    Did you get a pre-order in store?

    Gosh u must be real gutted, u should have preordered in store like I did thats why I don't do it online.

    Aw well. If you come down in the morning then you will be able to get GTA IV since they will have some limited stock in.
