Someone emailed me a pic of GTAIV's game disc...?

Some user named eedtprohaga4tt emailed me this. He has no posts at all. I know this may be fake but it's kind of cool I guess.

He sent me a pm, telling me to check my email.

Thing is, I have it set up so that I can only receive emails from admins. My email is not displayed if I am correct. It's really really weird.

She's a character called Elizabeta.

It definitely fits with the R* tradition of putting the attractive females on the game disc rather than something gritty. I've always wondered why R* does that.

She was on one of the pages in the Game Informer preview, and on the cover of that first OPM preview. Pretty cool disc. Her artwork was never that clear though. In the GI preview there was a grungy sort of overlay on the background so that "ruined" her, and on the OPM cover there was text all over.

Question: If this is official, the fact that there is already a disc printed is suspect. Could there be a demo on the way?

I'll admit that is a very nicely done fake, does look professional.

No, No playable Demo for this game will be released, not been a demo since GTA2, for technical reasons there can't be ademo as it would be too much work for Rockstar to cut data and redo the code to allow only part of content.

Well a demo had always been aside my expectations with GTA IV, but possibly so. A demo could hurt the hype, I believe. I would play it anyway though.

I dunno. Demo's can help build hype. There are some prime examples. Metal Gear Solid 2's demo actually made people more hyped. Hell, it came packaged with a game and people bought it solely for the demo. In 1997, the same thing happened when Final Fantasy VII got its demo. It built up hype like you wouldn't believe.

It seems that if the game is by far and wide the most anticipated game for that year, a demo actually helps hype more than anything. R* is now in that position.

Yeah they either hurt the hype or really build it up. The result of demos is really determined by personal opinions on there even being a demo for a certain game. Like personally, I think a demo for any GTA would kill the hype, especially one of GTA IV's magnitude, but I can't say I would not play the demo.

Creating a demo will be like unwrapping at least one whole borough to the player, if there are 2/3 mission to do and you are one a certain borough. Not really an inspiring idea for a free-roam game like GTA.

True. That would give some people (the more casual players) little incentive to buy the game, because they could just fuck around in the demo.
