Skip, the writer of 1Up's GTA4 preview has posted two interesting pieces of information on the NeoGAF forums for prospective owners of the PS3 version of GTA4. The first snippet is that the game will come with full (optional) Sixaxis support, which can be used to control bikes, helicopers and boats. The second is that there will be a mandatory 5-minute install when the disc is first inserted into the console.

Thanks to N4G.com and forum member Mekingtons for bringing this to our attention.

Anyone who's interested will know what it is. I'm sure Google will yield millions of results if you don't.

With it being Optional, it wont be bad. Only another way to play the game and I dont think it will be all that practical.

sounds like a good idea, really... i tend to turn the remote side to side in intense chases and whatnot (also, i'm one of those who tilt my head to the right, just to look around a corner biggrin2.gif) so, this sounds like something that could really aid me in chases thru the air or water... sounds cool!

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.

What was the fucking point of this post? It's a very, very well known feature of the PS3 controller. If you don't know that, you should have went and looked it up. mad.gif

I just wonder if the sixaxis can be used for throwing darts or shooting a game of pool? I was also told that you will be able to use the sixasis to control you character's balance when he is drunk. Only 12 days left until we find out!!!

I can't believe I forgot about the bowling. Do you think we can use the sixaxis to bowl like in the PS3 High Velocity Bowling game? I hope we can.

Alot of people were upset with Devil May Cry 4's mandatory install, its not the case here but on sites like n4g.com people would ball their eyes out because they have to wait 20 minutes to play a game.

oh yeah i know about that i see that on a other forum i go on, i dont understand what the problem is tbh because u can buy a USB hard drive, u get terabyte ones now so you cant compain with one of them use it for other things aswell. Ive got a 60GB hard drive and im planning to get one as soon as i can get the money for one and that. i only have about 15Gb of memery left but i can free up a good 30GBs of that easy so that will last me a while.

does anyone know how much the install is ?

I've been expecting this. It's a good thing...and if the install is only 5 minutes thats even better.

Not too long now...only 12 days now. happy.gif

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.
