It is summer. Either that or people are busy working. The only people I've seen/heard on it now are kids. The multiplayer is just too boring now. Wheres our DLC? Maybe then it would see more life.

Yeah the 360 is the same. There are free mode games running but they're usually either laggy as hell, full of idles or rocket launchers only. And good luck to you if you want to get into any other type of match.

I'm not surprised its dying, what with all the bugs and constant disconnection. Think people are just giving up with it and Rockstar's apparent refusal to address these issues.

Shame really as i've always found multiplayer to be a great deal of fun.

i got no problems... and i've never had a problem finding a game either... i don't know how often a lot of you still play GTAIV but, there's always people online playing... most free modes i get into have 8-10 people at least... there's always a crowd in the deathmatch/team deathmatch modes... deal breaker is always hopping... and the races are usually between 6-12 racers...

i experience no lag either... i don't know what your all talking about really... GTAIV multiplayer is not dying from what i can tell... in fact, i am surprised at how big it still is, even more than a year after it's release...

i just get this suspicion that none of you play GTAIV as much as i do... so, your arguments are only cited to isolated incidents...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Its starting to look that way. PS3 owners are always getting shafted when it comes to quality and relibility.

Well nvm, hopefully the next gta will be out in the next two years. We'll have to expect a lot more from the next installment, considering there wasn't much to do in IV as there even was in past GTA's .

I might get IV on PC because there is a lot of mods starting to come out at the moment.

Mine runs fine. Don't forget this game is out on PC too. Maybe hes playing on PC. I know for a fact the PC version is buggy.

No he's on PS3. It's usually just connection. Wireless isn't as reliable as a Wired Connection.

My PS3 is wired but I doubt it would be worse wireless. If it did get any worse I'd throw it in the bin.

My PS3 is wired but I doubt it would be worse wireless.

Like I said it all depends on your connection. With wireless the connection speed changes depending on the signal strength. So sometime's it's laggy sometimes not.

It hasn't been that bad lately but I think that may be down to fewer people playing.

I had a game before (for quite a few hours) and there were about 7 players on with friendly fire off and I noticed they were all in RS's so I decided to make it fun for myself and destroy their cars.
They just wouldn't give in and kept flying off to collect another from all the way across the other side of the map then each time they were about to enter the airport gates I'd blast them again. They could have just kicked me but they kept on wasting their time and doing it all over.

I'm a cunt I know but it was the most fun I've had on it for ages. tongue.gif

Maybe so. Perhpas I was a little harsh on Rockstar. Seems us PS3 owners are getting shafted.


With regards to the type of connection as briefly mentioned by others, I have a wireless connection. People say it isn't as reliable as a wired connection, signal strength etc, but it doesn't explain why I always have problems with GTA 4 but not any other game (Fifa 09, Little Big Planet, Unreal Tournament for example or even Playstation Home).

Like I say, its a real shame with the connection problems as mulitplayer is a great deal of fun.
