GTA IV just being demo'd in the Take2 conference at E3 2007

The conference just took place through 8 AM - 9 AM (PDT).
Don't expect to be any image or video of the game to be out at this moment, but here's how the story progressed.


Quote:
Demo Starts...

- The demo started off with a black menu screen, which is likely a temporary version, as is much of the user interface.
- The menu listed, from left to right, 'map', 'game', 'brief', 'stats', 'controls', 'audio' and 'display'.
- Niko Bellic was in a replica of Times Square, which is Star Junction.
- Trademark map icon in the corner.
- It was night time and the hours started to pass, drawing out the sun and showing off the HDR lighting, which was very realistic.
- The traffic and most other AI characters were turned off, so it was hauntingly empty.
- He strutted around for a bit, and then stole a car which happens to be a black Lincoln Continental-lookalike.
- 40s/50s era jazz is playing softly in the background, over the car's radio.
- About a minute and a half into the demo, the sun was starting to peek over the building tops, revealing the details at street level - trash cans, incidental objects and all manner of bottles, newspapers and more.
- The camera was fixed 15 feet behind the bar and a little above.
- Lighting looked fantastic, textures looking solid and rugged.
- Frame rate was a bit jumpy, but level of detail in landscape was greater than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.
- Niko pulled up to the docks under the "Broker Bridge" as the sun rose. The light played on the water, and then started illuminating the city behind him.
- Clouds above Liberty City light up, with planes flying through them.
- Clouds kept lighting up as Niko called up his buddy to "get some firepower".


Demo ends

This is really exciting stuff, GTA IV must be going along smoothly, perhaps we'll have a timely release for it. Perhaps they'll even release a gameplay trailer/teaser to the public.

Kotaku said they had night vision cameras to prevent people from taking photos and video. Im guessing R* is very secretive.
