In a recent interview with VideoGamer.com, Rockstar confirmed that there will not be a demo for GTA IV.

QUOTE
Rockstar: "We would have to give away half the game for free. People would think Liberty City is a tiny city. You run into problems."

There won't be a GTA 4 demo, Rockstar has told VideoGamer.com.

Speaking during our hands-on with what will surely be 2008's biggest game, a Rockstar rep told us that a demo "isn't worth the time and effort".

When asked if there will be a demo Rockstar replied: "I'm sure there won't be. If there was we would have talked about it. With a game like this the guys at Rockstar North will want to spend every minute making the game look great. Most people know the concept of GTA anyway. I don't know that the demo is worth the time and effort."

He added: "Also much of GTA 4 is the driving around and we wouldn't be able to give out the whole city. We would have to give away half the game for free. People would think Liberty City is a tiny city. You run into problems."

They have a very valid point not to release a demo.

But man I'm anticipating the release of this game with every fiber of my being.

Van Hel Singh! I nearly thought there would be no GTA at all. Almost gave me a heart attack. You better be sorry.

Don't call someone an asshole for your misinterpretation of their comments

i hope you guys arnt done reading this subject yet, i was just pondering while reading about the cars and what you cannot do with them, and i was thinking wait a minute, it sure would be nice riding bikes across a virtual NYC (i do it all the time) and then i was thinking to my self "i've actually heared nothing about bikes in GTAIV so i though i'de search up on it and i found this , if you look under his arm their apears to be a bike, i saw it again in another picture but couldnt get my hands on it, also while looking around i stumbled acrross this picture with vlad if you look to his left were the posters are on the wall, you can see what i think is the skating girls from vice city, am i going nuts or does anyone else notice the familiarity??? i think the other post got no closed or old so sorry about repeating my self, oh and about the demo i really dont care, and i agree with R* much!

No, but this isn't like any other GTA game so they might have done it differently this time around.

I am glad to hear there will be no demo. It is more fun when less is known.

Demo's have thrived with the increase of gaming networks. Xbox live and PSN have provoked more demos being released, maing it easier for demos to be downloaded. Therefore, some people would have thought that a GTA demo was plausible.

1. Less is more my pals.
2. Niko Fira, I don't have ANY doubt in my mind, that is DEFINITELY the skating girls from VC. They're both from VC, aside from the top large poster, can't place that one, looks extremely VC'ish though.
3. Yeah, there's a bike there. smile.gif

Yeah, definitely. Especially with how real to life it's going to be. Little things like taking walks in Central Park, riding through the city.. This game is going to be so much more than killing people and trying to get a few dollars to live.

Also, thinking about it. Having them photo's up in the bar seems a bit off, doesn't it? Could make for a good storyline to do with the bar owner. But I'm getting ahead of myself and going off topic.

How would you do a demo of a console game? I guess you could sell a demo version disc but demos are traditionally free.

Well you do it how most developers do it...by offering it as a free download on the Marketplace/PSN.
