Possible new info?

Every day on the train to work I read the free newspaper "Metro".
Metro is a free Flemish/French newspaper here in Belgium ment for people who use public transportation.
Today there was 1 page about GTA IV .
I'll post the things I THINK are new info.
I don't follow all news so closely so the info might have been revealed before.
Anyway here we go
  • As the story evolves we learn that Niko has a dark past that's following him to Liberty City (Yes we all know the "I'm looking for someone" )
  • Alchohol is the only drug you can use (yourself?) ingame.
  • Foto's taken with cellphone can be used in the policecomputer to see if they have a criminal record. (I knew about textsearch (name) but not with photo's.).
  • Internetcafees have more than 200 websites
  • You can watch tv (ingame :p) with more than 2 hours of video.

The alcohol, the number of websites and the TV thing are all new I think.

Thanks for posting this.

Never heard about the TV details before and 200+ sounds a bit extravagated (though there's been confirmation of 100+ websites). Nice find anyway.

Wow, the only reason you would see GTA in a newspaper here, is if somebody shot someone and blamed it on GTA. Good info btw.

Drug use is very important to me, when I heard jacob could hot box your car with weed smoke I was hoping niko could roll up and put one in the air. No phsycodelics? oh well. Maybe since it says ingame becuase he gets high in a cut scene. Only a few weeks left to find out.

cool info I think it is cool that drinking is the only drug you can use. Because in San andreas R* had a no drug theme for c.j that is why drugs are used by every other character you where the only character which that did not use drugs because it would send out the wrong message.

Sorry if i went on abit but that is why the main character never takes drugs only drink

Yeah killing innocent grannies and other peds does NOT send a negative message

On a side note Alchohol is a hard drug. Weed is a soft drugs
