  1. I did tell you ages ago on MSN you should have preordered it.
  2. Two leading Game retailers 'Game' and 'GameStation' have now stopped accepting preorders for the standard edition of GTA IV. Here what 'Game' had to say:
  3. I read this ages ago when I bought the CVG mag on tuesday. Plus I did put this in my thread ages ago http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16916 its on my last thread on it.
  4. Algonquin (Manhattan) Imagine New York is always full of people (I think i never been there) and they might have put it into GTA IV, push someone off one of the sky scrapers and see the reaction of people down below!
  5. The game won't be delayed now its too close to the release, if there are going to be faults on the game, then Rockstar will release a patch to fix it via Marketplace and PS3Store like they did with Bully: Scholarship a couple of weeks ago. But Game is stopping with preorders now, I don't know about the others, but if you are from the UK and you have yet to preorder, do it soon because you will be disappointed because people who have pre ordered comes first.
  6. The red circled dots on the radar, is most probs the cops, in the area chasing you.
  7. Well yesterday, I went into game and looked at the fake box art they got still on the shelves, and on it was stickers on each case saying to pre order to avoid dissapointment, but now its just says coming soon on them nothing else, and I talked to the manager of the store, and she said, that head office at Game told shop managers via email, to stop accepting Preorders, because they are running low all over the UK. So good luck getting one if you haven't already pre ordered.
  8. Heres what I have been reading this morning in this magazine. While much is familiar, despite its total reworking (even mob-boss Salvatore Leone's cliff-top mansion returns, for instance) Fittingly the bridge closures in Liberty that limit Niko's early movements are not due to hurricanes as in Vice City, or damage, as in GTA III, but because of terror threats. Liberty is a fully realised reality featuring hopeless dual-fuel cars, corrupt politicians and a television output smothered by 'Americas Next Top Hooker' TV shows and imoral, sensationalist neo-conservative propaganda masquerading as news. Tourist telescopes now work so you can see liberty city better from the top. Yes. Rockstar is clearly hinting at new downloadable cities; and the chances of them being London, Vice or SA again are slim to none. Liberty City is the beginning. Think about that. Who is Niko Bellic? Unlike GTA previous anti-heroes, Niko is not just a some small time hood with a certain morla flexability. He's a bad man, one time people smuggler, killer and all round criminal with a smurky background. Certainly he has had a military past - which explains his handiness with sniper rifles, rocket launchers and helicopters far better than, say, Tommy Vercetti's - but not in the most clean-cut ways. There are few links to his past life somewhere in Eastern Europe in Liberty City, so his history is murky yet the few people who do know him here mean that his future is going to get pretty badly stained too. Pulled Towards the city by the (somewhat exaggerated) tales of riches of his cousin, Roman. Niko is also on the lookout for 'a certain someone' from his past that he well, were not going to ruin it for you., but lets just say its not to return the jam jar he borrowed some sugar in from that time he had to kill someone with sugar, but had to run out. No. As Niko you'll be working every angle - from calling in favours to hacking police computers, to good old fashioned intimidation, disfigurement and mayhem - in order to locate the object of Niko's damaged affections. Two things really stand out about Niko Bellic the man. One, if you were to create a word that meant 'to act like bellic,' it would comeout has 'bellicose' - a word which already exists. A word that means warlike. Coincidence? Probably not. Two, he's a bit older than those around him, more expirienced, more cunning. He uses this hard-won street smarts to run increasingly bloody rings around LC's gobby pretenders and faint-hearted blowhards. You can even see it in his walks - swaggers - through the city. Its part Robert De Niro in Mean Streets, part Al Pacino in Scarface... and all Rockstar, through and through. About the City Liberty City is more smaller than San Andreas, but far more concentrated, more focused. And its taller, much taller, than ever before Niko's ability to shimmy alond ledges, boost up drainpipes, clamber over fire escapes - or simply whir up skyscrapers on window washing platforms - combines with this new altitude to create some truly horrifying drops. This city is more dangerous than ever before, and in more ways than you think. Right, I have done plenty of writing so you can read it, and once I find something intresting in CVG Magazine I will post it here.
  9. Heres some info I read, it includes stuff about GTA IV aswell GTA IV: DLC on XBOX Live Starting Autum 2008 So to sum it up its got everything you need to know about GTA IV and all of the other GTA's. I would scan more but its gettin late. And its well worth the £5, plus its the most intresting ive seen in weeks.
  10. Ye sure I will do some after, I will update this thread when I do
  11. Ye isn't the Armor and the Health meant to go round the map, I read it somewhere, can't remeber where. I don't think R* takes screenshots of the final stages of the game, I think thats from a older version.
  12. I didn't know where to but this, but if you are a fan of GTA, then you should buy the magazine I bought today, its a full mag of GTA History, plus it mentions everything like Sam Houser was in GTA III (The guy that owned Ammunation) Grand Theft wasn't going to be called Grand Theft Auto, it was gonna be called Race 'n' Chase London 1969 was actually Manchester And Vice City, San Andreas were just expansion packs for GTA III since all three cities were in GTA 1. And much More I have also scanned the front cover for you, and the magazine only costs £5. I bought it from WHSmith, and I couldn't find it anywhere else.
  13. I posted it in the forums, hours ago http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16905
  14. Im from the UK, well Wales lol, I was just posting some news.
  15. It was recently revealed that GTA IV will be censored for it's Australian release in order to comply with the OFLC rating system. As a result many Australian consumers placed pre-orders with New Zealand retailers, hoping to get an un-censored version of the game. However this morning Gameplanet.co.nz sent out the following email confirming that the New Zealand release will also be edited; Australians will now have to import from Europe if they want to obtain an uncensored PAL version of GTA IV. Rockstar is yet to comment on what has been removed from the local PAL release, leaving many gamers quite frustrated. Source: Australia's PAL Gaming Network
  16. Currys do create they're own boxes untill its released, so that could be a fake, plus theres no confirmation that Six Axis is enabled for GTA IV. So this in my opinion is not the real thing but a good dam find. But I will go to some game shops to see if there is a 360 version like Currys or Game
  17. Might be, in SA they wanted to but it was gonna be too realistic (I read GTA History book I got). But it might be a chance in IV since can hotwire a car.
  18. Ive never heard of a game needing to be installed for the PS3, or even if it was possible for the 360?
  19. Ye that looks real, even the 2008 thing under the logo appeard, and if that is fake that must have been hard work. S I say its real or maybe not
  20. Ye I know im sorry, but he does look like him. I'll be suprised if im right But ye it came to me after posting it that Rockstar won't release a picture of a death of a main character. this can be locked if you want.
  21. Ye this can be deleted if you want it. Sorry for this.
  22. If you have seen and assest a new Picture of GTA IV from Rockstar, it shows Niko and a guy falling to his death. That guy is Roman Bellic. And the falling guy wears the same has Roman and looks like Roman. Check for yourself.
  23. All ready posted http://www.thegtaplace.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=16755
  24. Sales for Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto IV for Microsoft Corp.'s Xbox 360 and Sony Corp.'s Playstation 3 cracked into the top five sales at Amazon.com this week as the anticipated sequel nears retail release. On Thurs., GTA IV for the Xbox 360 held a No. 3 rank, while the PS3 version held a No. 4 rank in the Video Games division. Grand Theft Auto IV is the next chapter in the best-selling Grand Theft Auto franchise. The Xbox 360 version will include two downloadable episodes available exclusively on Xbox Live. The title focuses on Niko Bellic, an Eastern European immigrant who travels to Liberty City. Take-Two Interactive in Aug. delayed Grand Theft Auto IV to 2008 from an original Oct. 2007 release. The publisher cited additional development time required to complete the title. The title will be released on Apr. 29 for the Xbox 360 and PS3. In Mar., Take-Two rejected a $2B buyout offer from EA, saying that the bid undervalued the software maker. Rockstar Games and Amazon in Mar. said that the two will partner to allow buyers of the Grand Theft Auto IV to purchase music tracks heard in the game from Amazon. Tracks to be featured in the game include Electrick Funk's 12-inch treasure "On A Journey", Elton John's "Street Kids", and exclusive trackcs like "War is Necessary" from rapper Nas.
