Grand Theft Auto IV Announced!

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 02:42 PM MDT | By Zidane
Today, Rockstar Games announced Grand Theft Auto IV for the Playstation 3 and Xbox360. Sorry Wii.
New York, NY – May 9th, 2006 -- Rockstar Games, the universally-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce Grand Theft Auto IV, the next-generation console debut of the genre-defining Grand Theft Auto franchise. Developed by world-class designers Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto IV will be simultaneously available for the PlayStation®3 and Xbox 360™ and is currently planned to be in stores in North America on October 16, 2007 and in Europe on October 19, 2007.

R* already has a GTA4 mini page up. Xboxlive? How about that! So, what do you think should be included in the game? Send me your ideas, and I just mightl put it up on a wishlist page.

Exciting news, but I fear that the 360 version will not be watered down and it'll lack any real improvements.

Man if I could just see one screen, that's all I need. But October '07 is such a long ways away, I'm going to go and think of other things..

How the hell are they going to fit this on 360? Either they will cut content, use most of the CPU for compression, or have the game on multiple disks. Either way, the game won't be as good or feature-rich as it would be if it were exclusive.

Ill probably just stick to tne playstation like i allways have.

I hope they let us use the right analog stick for gas/brake this time, I've gotten used to it, and going back playing San An, I just hate using the x button, it wears on your fingers faster, plus it'll free up two buttons for more features while driving, you don't really need to look up or down all that badly.

Im definatley getting the PS3, definatley not the 360.
Il ike the looking up and down feature, comes in handy often and makes things easy. I dont mind about having the gas/break as the right analog, as long as they still keep the X avalible coz Im more comfortable with that.
