Gameplay Videos

ok so rockstar gets upset with all the gameplay video leaks...what do you expect, you have so much hype for this game + rockstar gives us little info in gameplay videos + games get delivered 5 days early = what do you expect. there is so much that we don't even know about the game....*spoiler* (don't know how to use spoiler tags) ie you can watch tv in niko's apartment.*spoiler*
rockstar does a great job in what they do but to avoid this problem in the future they should release more videos.
i'm frustrated and i feel i should projectile vomit on a tree.
the 5 longest days of our lives.........

To use the spoiler tags, type [ spoiler ] when starting it, and [ /spoiler ] when closing it. Be sure to remove all of the spaces.

It should look like this:

GTA IV is going to be fun!


But on-topic, consider this:
This is a MASSIVE step up from the rest of the series. In Rockstar's eyes, they wanted everyone to be entirely surprised when opening their game the day they purchase it, and seeing massive, living, breathing world, unparalleled with ANY other GTA game, or any game for that fact.

It's quite a step up from the past GTAs, so Rockstar really wants to surprise people come launch.

but then why didn't rockstar make sure nobody got copies early? like make sure whoever the retailer is to send it out so when it arrives at the door step it's the 29th or just the day before, but 5 days?

People work at game stores and they snag copies early. Some of those people ripped the data off the disc and spread it around the net.

I can understand why someone would leak footage, but to release a full game on torrent sites before their launch date? Low blow to Rockstar, to be completely honest. Music piracy has never bothered me, since development costs are much less. But video game piracy and movie piracy are pretty bad.

yeah that sucks for rockstar, but if i were to attempt to download the torrent i would have no idea how to get it to run on the 360, nor know where to take it to get it modified to play it.

Very true. The people that do this is not a real fan or loyal to GTA. Some say they "don't want to spend $60 for a game" or "can't afford $60 on a game". A loyal gamer would have saved up months ago or paid off the game already!

If you have kept up with news, you should have known that the ability to watch TV in the game is not a secret, Rockstar Games has revealed that to us. However, you should know that Grand Theft Auto IV is a fun and hard-to-resist game. Id you had watched the gameplay videos, you'll know what I mean. If they were to release gameplay footage any earler than 1 or 2 days before the release date, there would probably be a case of a 9 year old boy raiding a GameStop outlet in desperation to get the game. Then the game might not even be released at all due to the likes of Hillary Clinton and Jack Thompson.

No matter how many videos you see, they're still not going to match the first time you play the game.
