Preview from Games Magazine (UK) and 360 Magazine (UK) - July issue

Noticed these 2 being put up on Matt's blog recently. Obviously no big new info you can expect from them at this time. But the previews were really nice read.

Here are the magnet parts from the previews.

- After a slick hotwiring job, Niko cruises around Broker while R* manipulates the camera to show off the re-modelled driving engine. The vehicle suspension now reacts to every bump in the road, the light reflects and refracts faultlessly over the chassis. It's like watching a movie. And this was while driving at 20 MPH. We can only imagine how incredible a spectacle GTA IV will be when neck deep in a high-speed police chase.

Broken windows will get you noticed in Liberty City.

Could this be a hint for a speedometer?

Wait. So if you smash a window you'll likely get cops on your tail? This means that almost every time you jack a car, no matter if a cop sees you steal it or not, police may chase after you because you were so indiscreet when it came to showing you stole that car.

They were making an assumption of the speed may be; otherwise they would've mentioned if they saw the speedometer on the HUD, or from the interior of the car.

It is already out. [Thread]. Sadly, nothing huge from them, though less frustrating than its June issue.

I could have sworn I posted in that Anyway, that is dissapointing. I thought the Play magazine article was supposed to be an all - new one.

Edit: Posted in the wrong thread :/

The info from 360 Magazine (UK) is definitely interesting though, this sort of realism is the good kind, I just don't want to be pulled over for driving over the speed limit.

I could do as you suggest,but I'm not alone in this( Zcab also likes 60fps). An I'm afraid your bag would be so full it could make you wabble a bit

Actually my friend, TVs run at 29.97fps (NTSC) or 25fps (PAL) and that's just Standard Definition (720x480 and 720x576), whilst HDTVs can run upto 60fps Progessive Scan which would give a whole lote smoother gameplay action. Films are shown at 24fps but only when being displayed in True HD mode, for example 1080p24.

Wahhh, we so need this game on computer

It makes me cry reading about this, not having a 360, PS3, or even a decent telly for that matter.

As the Play Magazine July Issue says, there are at least 4 different methods of car jacking. Each of them may not require breaking the glass, I believe lock picking would be one of them.
