my friends dad came out on the news when he was standing on the roof of his liquor store holding a shotgun...

I watched the review (or was it an interview?) they did on Attack of the Show the other night. Apparently it's supposed to be super good; hands down the best improvement in the game.

I also read somewhere that this should eclipse Halo 3's record of 6 million copies sold in the first week. B)

Is there any truth to this?

I read somewhere, I think although I am not sure that it was ign, that in GTA 4 there is two identical buildings that you can fly a plane into?

If that is the case, that is just messed up

I think I remember a while back reading somewhere online that there was supposed to be a mission where you jump a ramp over where Ground Zero is, but they took the mission out and left the ramp. No idea if its true though. Doesnt get more screwed up than that though.

I still cant wait though. Im tempted to play hooky and ditch class on Tues night so I can pick it up then instead of waiting til Wednesday

I've played its Madden08 and COD4, both of which I have for my 360 and the 360 dominates the PS3 across the board, matching games, less lag, much less frequent disconnects... And its the same connection because its my friends' PS3's hooked up to the connection at school.

Does anyone know what the online play is going to be like.

GameTap has finally gotten a chance to share the previously embargoed details of its recent hands-on time with Grand Theft Auto IV. The preview discusses four of the game's fifteen online modes: Team Deathmatch, GTA Race, Cops 'N Crooks (a Counter-Strike style team match) and Hangman's Noose (a co-operative escort mission).

Among the interesting details discussed (some of which have also been revealed elsewhere):

  • Previously rumored 16-player online play is confirmed.
  • The online maps aren't changed in any way from single-player -- you can still drive vehicles from one end of the city to the other, if you want.
  • There's no co-op option for the single-player missions, but many online modes allow for cooperation.
  • Ranked online matches earn players in-game cash for character customization. Higher difficulty means more cash.
  • Race mode can be played with or without weapons.
  • The volume of other characters voices will vary depending on their distance from you. "So if you hear an enemy's voice, he's probably right behind you and it's too late."

The most telling quote in the preview is Vice President of Game Development Geronimo Barrera's suggestion that "after players earn the cell phone in the single-player game (which takes about five minutes), if they want they can jump online and never even play the single-player again." With the extremely varied multiplayer options, we might just be taking him up on that

Variety has been told by "sources close to publisher Take-Two Interactive" that Grand Theft Auto IV is expected to earn $400 million in its first week on sale, handily trumping Master Chief's $300 million space hoop slam dunk. Reportedly based on retailer orders, the prediction sees six million gamers purchasing Rockstar's latest during the week of April 29 and contributing to "possibly the biggest debut ever for an entertainment product." Unsurprisingly, this matches the positive outlook shared by several analysts, with Michael Pachter predicting 9 million sales by Halloween. Our recent (thoroughly unscientific) poll found that more gamers were leaning towards the Xbox 360 version.

ps...halo is overrated

Thanks, sounds pretty sick. But still i'm going to spend most of my time in the single player mode.

That is scary close to my name. B)

And I agree, although Halo is a good game/series, it is pretty overrated.

...one of the best things about San Andreas! And even SA wasn't that involved compared to what GTA IV will be.
