Social Club gets visual overhaul

GTAGaming.com - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 12:16 PM MDT | By rappo
The Rockstar Games Social Club received a big, and much needed, visual overhaul earlier today, dubbed Social Club v1.1. The site's content not only looks better, but is also much more accessible (probably in anticipation for its role in GTA IV PC's video editing and uploading features).

Some of the new features to the site include the ability to choose a nickname separate from your Xbox Live or PlayStation Network gamertags, which will be used in coming features such as the Message Wall, and to create a list of friends, whose GTA IV stats and progress you can easily track.

Another interesting note is that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars in the "Games" section is shown as "Coming soon." We'll keep you updated as any details of Chinatown Wars' involvement with the Social Club emerge.

The Lost and Damned to sell for $19.99

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:11 PM MDT | By Neil
When it was revealed that the GTA IV downloadable content was the result of a multi-million dollar deal between Rockstar and Microsoft, everyone feared that the end product would be very costly. Now that the name - The Lost and Damned - has been announced, the question on everyone's lips returns to the issue of pricing.

Thankfully, Gamestop have come to the rescue and revealed that they will be selling a voucher enabling the content download for US$19.99. To sweeten the deal, you also get a free double sided poster when you purchase from the store.

The price indicates that the content will sell for 1600 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live and remember - it won't be available in disc form at all, you will need an Xbox Live account (Gold or Silver) in order to get your hands on it.

GTA IV PC put on hold in India (UPDATE 11/30: delay removed)

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 11:28 PM MDT | By rappo
UPDATE on November 30, 2008: the ANGRY pixel has published another article stating that the game will be released on December 3 as originally planned, and at the very low price of INR 499 (about US $10).


Originally due in India on the European release date of December 3, GTA IV PC has been indefinitely pushed back as a result of the country's recent devastating terrorist attacks.

e-Xpress Interactive, Rockstar's Indian distributor, felt that releasing a violent video game like GTA IV would be insensitive given this week's events. This came as a tough decision for e-Xpress because the game's release would have been a record-breaker for India - it was to be the first time a high-rated game would be sold at the lowest price worldwide (INR 499, equivalent to about USD $10).

Unfortunately, the delay is likely to just increase GTA IV's piracy rates in India, where the distribution of illegally obtained games is a growing problem.

PC version of GTA IV uses SecuROM

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 11:33 AM MDT | By Neil
Last week we posted an image of the back of the PC version of GTA IV's box which Rockstar had supplied to a retailer in the UK. One piece of text on the back of the box reads "Initial activation requires internet connection". The following day, we received an email from Rockstar asking us to remove it, with no reason cited. We reluctantly complied, yet if you visit Tesco's website you'll see that they are still displaying the image.

Today the company revealed that the game will use SecuROM Digital Rights Management software. More interestingly though, they also deployed a lengthy Q&A document which attempts to convert everyone to wonderful ways of this magical software. One little gem from the article:
"SecuROM offers a diverse toolset to publishers to help safeguard their IP and interests. Vocal 'board posters' seem to be most down on the SecuROM feature that limits the number of installations. But this SecuROM functionality is really nothing different than what iTunes has used for years now."
The disc-based version of the game can be installed on an unlimited number of computers at a time, while buyers from services like Steam or Direct2Drive will only be able to install on a maxmium of 5 machines simultaneously. All versions of the game must be activated once per machine before play, and the company says that it has a contingency plan for users who don't have an internet connection - visit a website.

In addition to SecuROM, the game will also fill your drive with 16GB of game and other data including versions of Adobe Flash, Internet Explorer, DirectX, Games for Windows LIVE and the Microsoft .net framework.

GTA IV ships on two DVDs for PC, won't activate until release

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 04:03 PM MDT | By Neil
"Nicolaibo," a lucky GTA fan from Denmark, managed to get his hands on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV a little early, and has provided some tidbits of information about the game.

Yesterday we heard about the game's activation process and true to Rockstar's word, the game cannot be played until next week - SecuROM simply won't let you activate it until then. A different manual to the console versions is supplied with the game, which ships in an outer cardboard sleeve surrounding a regular plastic DVD case.

The game data is on two DVDs. You're required to have 16GB of free space on your hard drive in order to install so those who are buying digital versions should be prepared for a long wait for their data to download from the internet.
