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

IPB Image


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.

Update

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.

Hmmmmm............. So what do you think this means ultimately for the game?

Maybe we'll actually be able to climb ladders now!
Online will be a huge part of it I'm sure..

but will it be more censored? I have this weird feeling it won't be as "raw"

They probably will have removed alot of the sexual elements after Thompson declared war on them, yes.

I reckon those 'exclusive' downloadable features will be a pretty minor part of the game either that or PS3 owners are going to get their own downloadable exclusives. If they are going to be a major part of the game and only MS are going to get them then PS3 owners are going to get a hugely inferior version of GTA, and I just can't see that happening.

I'd be suprised if E3 doesn't cough up some more official details or at least some fairly substatiated rumours.
I Made Your Mom In GMod
Yeah, I agree with Mobe. It would be unbalanced, and there'd be uproar.

This is pretty good news, at first I thought it was this year so I was freaking out because I had to find money for it. But the site says 2007 so Ive got a while yet. biggrin.gif

They might be making an online multiplayer for the ps3 aswell ph34r.gif i mean clap.gif
I Made Your Mom In GMod
That's been confirmed hasn't it? There's some system similar to Xbox Live in place. Btw, can I steal your userbar? tongue.gif
DuPz0r
yeah, you can use it if you want.
So what location do you think they will set it?
I Made Your Mom In GMod
Thanks. happy.gif
Who knows. Because of the name and the recent Getaway announcements, it's unlikely to be in London. Europe is still a strong possibility. Maybe south America (haha)...
conFUSED
I can't wait. 2007 seems like so far away.

Something feels like deja-vu

It does feel like when SA was first announced^_^

Or do you mean the "where will it be set" question?

I doubt the game will be as big/good as it could've been if it's going to work on the 360 aswell mad.gif

Good point. Hopefully the PS3 version is just much better graphically. October 2007... so far away.

XBOX 360 users will have the better hand though since they will have exclusive episodic content for Xbox Live, giving the community ever-expanding gameplay experiences that simply aren't possible on other consoles.

As will the PS3 Network have exclusive content themselves. Kind of like the exclusive characters in Soul Calibur where Link was in the GC version and Spawn was in the Xbox version.

Where's the article that says the PS3 Network will have exclusive content just as XBOX 360?

There isn't any but it's probable speculation that there will be some exclusive content (whether it be textures or skins) distributed by Sony themselves. Unless, I see some exclusive agreement amongst Rockstar North and Microsoft, I am going to be optimistic about this. Plus, It would be stupid if Sony is neglecting their fanbase by copping out on the online content downloads on their own service.

I have a 360,....and it's not as good as what the PS3 is supposed to be....so.....if the game is made to work for both systems.....it will likely not be as good as it could've been had it been made exclusively for PS3

I honestly don't think an inferior version of the game will put a stain on your whole gameplay experience. (If you were to play it on the PS3, that is.)

Couldn't agree with you more. I remember around the time SA came out. The delay and all as well.

About time. Ah, the good ol' days once again. Although 2007 seems like, no, is, ages away. Now we need a GTAIV forum.

Ah well - *starts countdown from 500andsomething*.

Yeah I agree. An Xbox version will merely drag things down. The Xbox is an inferior console graphically, and in terms of storage space. Blu-Ray can hold >20GB on one disk. Dual layer DVD <10, so if they're going to fit it onto both consoles, Rockstar aren't going to be able to fill up the whole 20GB disk with sexy ass GTA content if it's going to have to be ported onto the 360 as well. dry.gif
Fran
well this is good news the scary thing is i would have finished school by then
Strike
Well, at least we know it's no longer 360-exclusive, like it was said it would be yesterday during the Microsoft E3 conference. I find this news excellent as it still gives me time to save up for a PS3, and a HDTV. And with all the functionality PS3 has, including what Pyro mentioned - the Network, it could be one Hell of an awesome game, giving us Sony gamers the equal rights of what 360 gamers have, in being able to download exclusive content.

I've marked it down on my PC calendar already, and am counting down already. Roll on, 2007...

Ah yes, all SA was missing to make the perfect game... The ladder climb. Let's hope they finally include it in GTA4, or they can say good bye to sales.

All you guys that keep bitching about the Xbox and PS versions need to remember this:

When Xbox360 came out, the graphics weren't as good as the target shots, and there is a strong possibility that the PS3 won't be as good as it can be. Every console has some problem or another at launch. Ans plus, it might cost too much to make a PS3 with all of those fancy chips and shit that make it all High-Tech and such.

I'm not sure if they've showed a PS3 running or not, but like I said before, it might cost too much to make one to those specs. Therefore it might not be as good.

Thing that confused me was the towers in the back ground, id of thought the biggest building would be based on Richard bransons

Any chance it will come out for the PC aswell since i won't be able to get a ps3 by then.
INzANE
I'm getting an Xbox 360 just to play Oblivion, so I'm glad that GTAIV will be coming out on both consoles. I mean I'm sad that it won't be coming out for a PS3 exclusive, Becuase I've always been a Sony gamer, but atleast I'll be able to play the next greatest game in the world.

And BTW: It most likely will be coming for PC.
LordKrazy
Which console to buy for... i've always said that GTA should stay on PS and it'd suck on Xbox... However... i'm probably going to buy for the 360. Since im getting a PS3 anyways I may just buy it for that too tongue.gif However, that'd just be a waste of cash.

Guess I have to wait and see what the PS3 really has to offer.

Most likely, as before, a PC version will come out several months after the console versions. And most likely will be one of the biggest games for the PC, probably taking up a large amount of disk space - think of the size of a blu ray disk.

The picture is posted in gtaforums, thats why i thought i'd post it here.
See what people think.
If itis real, then it seems like a very interesting city. I really have a strong feeling its going to be set in a European country this time round.
COLDOG
Oh, sorry. Thought he meant the logo, as I didn't see this other picture, lol.
gingergenius
assuming that pic is real.

then the city looks like paris. except the towers in the background look like the 300m+ towers being built in the City at Bishopsgate, etc. in the next few years. maybe theyve amalgamated european cities into one. especially as the traffic looks to be on the french side of the road.

I really doubt that picture is anywhere close to real.
