Does any1 know if u can BUY CARS in GTA4

Recommended Posts

I was wonderin this after ive seen a few articles saying how hard it was to steal a car.....i was also wonderin if u do steal a car and u manage not get caught would u be able to use that same car throughout the game? because in the other games id steal a car go into a meeetin for a mission and wen i came out it dissapear.......

Im just wonderin about this im not saying any1 should know the answears.

And also do u guys think it be a good idea to be able to buy cars in the new game?

I would imagine that if they are stepping up the realism, then the cars you do steal would stick around. The impression I got was that GTA IV would be less of a consequence free environment than in previous titles, so instead of being able to get away with all kinds of crazy sh*t, you would have to be more calculated, only committing crimes when they are strictly necessary.

So in short, yeah I think it would be highly likely & in more in keeping with this new direction, if they made it easier for you to keep hold of your acquisitions.

kits not just keeping ur old cars after u steal it.......if they made the game so realistic i think it woul be great if u could go to a car dealership and buy ur own car.

Buying your own car (and getting insurance) would be a great feature to have, and I think it could be a possibility because stealing a car now will probably get you a higher star rating as before if it when unnoticed nothing happened. I also think if you are going to buy a car you will have to get it insured incase the car blows up or sometrhing like that. Plus they could have a featre each time the car gets damage, the insurance goes up.

Hmmm...insurance for vehicles...where did you get that idea? :P

Not sure where I got the idea, probably from the re-spawning vehicles, but having this feature will probably have a reason for re-spawning, insurance would be a good feature and I dont think people will get annoyed of it after a while.

the insurence idea.......a bit 2 far, but hey it makes sense...maybe even buying ur own parking space for how many cars u have......and like the other guy said it make u spend ur money on more things than just food and wepons...in the other games thats all i spent it on and i got more than enough from missions and other jumps that i did.

Grand Theft Auto? ... but still I think it would be cool to buy a car but an insurance for it it's just too much, too much realism ruins the game ... What's next, life insurance in a game ?

Off-topic: Solari24, you should fix your userbars because they're stretching the page.

Off-topic 2: Another Romanian and Steaua fan lolz. I'm happy

Salutări.

i hope gta IV has that same feature that saints row has, where your car is actually saved to the garage, and even if you wreck it, you can just go back to your garage and get it again

The game's named Grand Theft Auto, and y'all wanna buy cars?

I'm sorry, but that's taking it WAY too far.

What's next, (you) selling cars?

well not sure about the whole idea of "buying cars" but there should be a few cardealerships, where only rare cars will be sold or something like that. ofcourse you could just steal them but the car would become "stolen" and the police would maybe give you a fine or something (if they can catch u :D )

Well that's rather stupid, like what hunter8888 said - it is Grand Theft Auto after all, not Grand Buy Auto, however it would definitely help with using money more often so it becomes important.

I like the idea of buying cars in the game, and for this reason only:

dont you hate trying to find a specific car, and it seems not to spawn anywhere? well with a car dealership, you can just go buy that car, and not have to look all over the whole map for it. other than that, im happy with stealing them.

yes i thinking buying cars would be a great idea.. maybe a kinda of car sales catalogue? like an auto trader or something where u can use your phone to phone the person your buying the car off?.. brings the new mobile feature into use! yes its called grand theft auto... even if you can buy cars that doesnt stop you from stealing cars...

gycu brun, hunter88888....

when people think that buying cars is a good idea.. you think its stupid and that cars should only be stolen because the game is called GTA... so what about food you think they should steal that too? because the game is called grand theft auto right?...

Don't even compare...

Search a bit for the car you want and then steal it, it's easy.

The stallion niko drives in the second trailer looks to be more of his own car, rather than a stolen one. I wouldnt mind if you had a specific car that spawned outside your hideout. Remember, R* said that this wasnt a rags to riches game, so we might not neccessarily have the money to go out buying cars.

I find it easier to steal an Infernus than to find a Car Store and pay half a million for it ... just an example ...

You can't "theft" a pizza, you can "theft" a car :lol: , we're talking about cars here ...

Allegedly, people from R* have been looking in on some of the forums (this one included).

Use plain English, decent grammar & put a little thought into your posts.

Ironic - If one of the banned members from the last summer was actually Houser.
