    Grand Theft Auto IV

    Anyone else excited about this?

    Some good videos on http://www.rockstargames.com/

    I can remember getting the original GTA the day it came out on the Playstation after playing a 5minute demo of it literally every day. When it came out I played it loads and was part of the original online modding scene for the game, learning how to create custom cars, maps, physics specs and missions (top down made things fairly straight forward but still involved)

    Amazes me how much its all changed now, the new stuff looks visually stunning and cant wait to get lost in it. From what Ive heard the realisum level has been ramped up a bit more, with you having to actually 'hotwire' stolen cars etc.

    Anyway... Im well looking forward to it, think it could be a week off work for me to play it when it surfaces (its already late for those of you that dont know, was due last year but looking like it could be april time)

    Ill be booking a few days off for releaseday lets put it that way, think ill be getting it on 360 rather than waiting for the PC version, PC version will pwn but the 360 has exclusive content and I dont think I will be able to wait for the PC release

    PC Version for me when its out, but PS3 Version will tide me over till then!

    I like GTA because I get to go round blowing peoples heads off after a long hard day, and lets face it, its easier to clean up the PS3 than it is real life!

    Not much spec info on the game itself thats credible atm

    GTA series has always been cool, its like the Font they use, PriceDown, was created by a man called Ray Larabie (sp) who used to come onto all the forums back in the day and talk to all the GTA Geeks, top bloke. Belive he did alot of the shading on the cars in GTA 2, which was why the whole game had the more grimey, futureistic feel.

    God thinking about this is making me feel like a virgin again!

    I heard the 360 version was ready last year but they're having to rewrite a lot of code for the PS3 version...they're contracted to do a simultaneous release so we'll just have to wait until the latter is ready...

    Looking forward to it though!

    Thats funny, i heard the reason why its taken so long to be released was because the 360 version could not handle the whole game, and so they had to downsize the game thanks to the xbox 360. The ps3 version was original ready many months ago. Someone correct me if im wrong.

    from wikipedia
    On 2 August 2007, Take-Two announced that Grand Theft Auto IV would miss its original release date of 16 October 2007 contrary to their previous statements, and would be delayed to their second fiscal quarter (FebruaryApril) of 2008. Their stated reason for the date change was "due to additional development time required to complete the title."[8] In a later conference call with investors, Take-Two's Strauss Zelnick attributed the delay to "almost strictly technological problems... not problems, but challenges."[9] It was revealed that technical difficulties with the PlayStation 3 version of the game was a contributing factor to the delay.[10]

    I had a look on play but the bundle wasn't released until June originally. Now it's showing in stock but for 299.99.

    http://www.play.com/Games/PlayStatio...tml?dpr=132836

    How did you get it for 285??

    Any chance of sharing that please?

    Edit: Found it. But they can only ship to my billing address and that's no good to me right now.
