New GTA IV PC details

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 03:27 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
The latest issue of Italian magazine, The Game Machine, has revealed a few new details on the PC version of GTA IV.
  • The replay editor can record, save and edit the last 30 seconds of the game. Once you have saved your video, you can open another piece of internal software in order to change the point of view and add special effects. The montage editor allows you to edit various replays into a single sequence, add audio tracks from the official soundtrack of the game and add effects like transition from a sequence to another. You can then upload and publish your videos to the Rockstar Social Club to share them with the world.

  • The GPS map has been improved. You can now point and click with the mouse on a specific location and make notes or add images to personalize it.

  • Improved streaming will be possible with the power of todays processors. If you have seen cars on the road that matched the car you are driving, this has been somewhat fixed. More pedestrians and vehicles will be visible.

Very cool changes, especially with the addition of an internal replay editor. The map notes should be really helpful too.

Map notes should be great for re-locating good stunt spots or weapon spawns, etc.

Even though my laptop isn't powerful enough to run anything but WoW, this is still awesome news.

Features like the Replay Editor should be great. Paves the way for a lot more stunt videos and Machinima.

Visible, meaning you'll be able to handle more pedestrians/cars in the area. Making the city feel a bit more populated.
