The official site for Grand Theft Auto 4 has been released by Rockstar Games at http://rockstargames.com/grandtheftauto4/

Thankfully it shows for PS3 as well as XBox 360, and won't be a one console game and both will be launching at the same time, apparently

Gamespot posted on their site:

[UPDATE] At its pre-E3 press conference, Microsoft confirmed that the next Grand Theft Auto is coming to the Xbox 360 in October of next year. In an official announcement, Rockstar Games confirmed simultaneous launch on PS3.

Thanks to Damian and Miami13

Microsoft have revealed at E3 that GTA IV will have downloadable add-ons from the XBox Live service. More details will follow as launch date nears.

I don't think you could be more wrong! Since when have Rockstar really cared aqbout what people think of the time zones? And 60's music is great! I really don;t think it'll be set in the USA again, but most likely Europe.


Oh I'm wrong am I? Think about it, its simple logic.

On average, do you think the majority of 18-30 year olds listen to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones etc. ? watch Bewitched, Green Acres, The Partridge family etc. ? No, so why would you bother setting a game marketed towards the younger generation in a period in which the younger generation isnt interested in? I for one would not buy the game, no matter how much better it is than San Andreas.

It's like if EA Sports decided to to a 'Madden: Flashback' game set in the 1954 season, do you think the game will sell? No, because kids arnt interested in that.

If Rockstar is smart, GTA4 won't be set in London. Why? 2 words, The Getaway. As GTA fans, one thing we've come to expect from Rockstar is that they like to be unique, original, and although they did come up with the London idea first (GTA: London 1969 or what ever it was on PS1), the next gen version of 'GTA: London' has been done (The Getaway).

Which brings me to my next point, if they were to follow the GTA pattern (Liberty City, Vice City, San Andreas, London), they would have called this new game "GTA: London" or what ever, instead of just "GTA4".

I think we can expect to see the game stay based on America, but maybe not based on a certain real life part exactly.

I think it would be a good idea to set the city as this 'Carser City'. we've all heard about this place in previous GTA's. This way they can just cut sick on what ever they want, they dont have to model the city on any specific real life place, they can just make what ever gangs, kind of people, the places they want and not worry about sticking to the script so to speak.


So they'd be copying The Getaway if it was set in London?
That's like saying they were copying True Crime with San Andreas.
Do you really think San Andreas was anything like True Crime Streets of LA?
