If it's true, I'll definitely lament the loss of planes, but it won't affect whether I buy GTA IV or not. How about you guys?

I always loved planes, throughout the entire series from when they were first available in III.

Planes never took up that much time for me. While they were fun, they aren't practical in Liberty City.

I didn't really like the pay to fly on an airliner thing, but I like to steal the planes from the airports and fly them around.

Unhappy

I'm definatly second guessing my decision. Possibly becuase I was so pumped for this game and my favourite part is being omitted.

Keep in mind, this hasn't been officially confirmed.

No, it won't affect my decision on buying it. I buy every GTA regardless of anything. Besides, I've already pre-ordered and paid it all off.

ivar87 is an unknown quantity at this point
I dunno, maybe just take a jetfighter and get a tail on yo' ass and cruise around the urban jungle trying to avoid missiles on yo' back. Do all kinds of moves to get behind them and take them down. And oh - the view.
I love to put my plane on "autopilot" and just enjoy the view while slowly flying circles over a certain place.
If they're not in the game, I'll be disappointed but still I'll buy the game.

You guys are completely forgetting this is coming from the same developer that put a fucking Jet pack into San Andreas. If planes aren't in there, some else that's just as awesome will be. Keep your pants on.

Personally, I've always found the planes and helicopters as a novelty and won't shed tears if they aren't in the game. They blew up after getting hit once and often had horrible controls. The jetpack was so much better.

Most likely they'll still have helicopters. Having planes in a single city is pretty pointless anyways, there's practically nowhere to fly in Liberty City. You'd be up in the air, and it'd take 4 seconds to cross the map, not a fun flight.

And no, it seems Kind of silly to not get it just for a small detail like no planes.

What if the city is about the size of San Andreas?

Even still, I always preferred driving around San Andreas or just taking a plane via the airport to decrease distance.

Well, in a city setting as I pointed out earlier, planes don't make sense. But I guess I didn't mention helicopters did I...

Anyways as fun as they are, if it's just Liberty City they're not nessacary. If it's multiple cities, almost a must have.

Nope. Never spent much time in planes anyway. I really don't see what all the bickering is about.

Well, no, I'm not. New York is a reasonably big city, but because of sky scrapers and other tall buildings it would not be a suitable candidate for a plane. Helicopter yes, but a plane no.

However time will show us more, and for all we know it's just another rumor.
