Sunday Times: GTA IV took 1000 people and $100m to make

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 05:02 AM MDT | By Neil
rappoAn interesting article about Grand Theft Auto IV appeared in The Sunday Times today. The newspaper was given a rare interview with Leslie Benzies, the producer of every GTA title since GTA III.

The interview gives us a brief look at his life, which has seen him move from one of the most remote areas in Scotland to a leading position at the country's top video game developer. There's also mention of the rivalry between Benzies and David Jones, the top man at competing developer Realtime Worlds. The two companies are the product of a rift between the early GTA team, which has resulted in colorful opinions and competing games - GTA IV and All Points Bulletin.

Moving back to GTA - Benzies says that almost 1000 people played a part in the development of GTA IV. He believes the cost could be around the $100m mark, making this one of the most heavily staffed and expensive video games to date. If you read just one more article about GTA IV before you get the game on Tuesday, make it this one.

GTA IV technical Q&A

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 11:41 AM MDT | By Slim Trashman
One of our members, PHiLCORE, has posted a very informative Q&A for GTA IV concerning technical limitations and features as well as some extra bits of information.

Something that stood out was that if you're not liking the sound of the new control scheme from what you've heard so far, you can switch to the classic control scheme by pausing the game and scrolling to Controls and toggling Classic Mode on.

Read the GTA IV Technical Q&A. Thanks, Phil!

Vice City Online making progress

GTA: Vice City - Modifications | @ 11:54 PM MDT | By rappo
A new Multi Theft Auto killer in the works, Vice City Online, is making great progress with its developer tests and beta runs. The mod (if you can even call it that) looks amazing, and it will certainly revolutionize the way Grand Theft Auto is played online on the PC. A full feature list is available on our forums, but here is the latest beta test video released showing off some of the features:


Unfortunately the beta is closed for developers and selected users for now, but the mod should be released by the end of next month. For more information, visit Vice City Online's official site or check out the developer's post in our forums.

Hidden Package #5

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 04:36 AM MDT | By Neil
GTA IVA man from UPS just broke my slumber, but I forgave him because in his hand he was clutching Hidden Package #5. It's quite a weighty one, so you'll forgive me for hoping (and praying) that a copy of the game was inside the box. No such luck, I'll have to wait until tomorrow for mine, but what did arrive is still cool nonetheless.

Inside the box was a Liberty City Police Department shirt (which is very close to fitting my small frame - every other T-Shirt they've sent me would fit only a whale), a Grand Theft Auto IV hand grenade (it's extremely heavy and I think I might remove the GTA IV keychain to use on my car keys) and a number of GTA IV stickers. Thanks Rockstar.

Grand Theft Auto IV in stores now!

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 07:24 AM MDT | By Neil
It's April 29th in New Zealand, meaning the first gamers are now getting their hands on copies of Grand Theft Auto IV. Within the next hour, players in Australia will also be able to buy the game, and we've got less than half a day before it arrives in Europe. North American players will have to wait just a little bit longer.

There are just a few more hours to go before the Rockstar Games Social Club opens its doors fully, and that leaves just a few hours to register and enter the Custom Portrait Sweepstakes.
