GTA IV is a tremendous game and is a billion times better than any other grand theft auto brought out if you do all of the missions in 1 or 2 attempts you will make the rest of the game much easier for you and if you take all of your frinds out you will be able to get helicopters and free taxi rides to anywhere you want.....
        hope you enjoy the rest of the game

Right I've played it not, and I'm going to be honest, I don't know what I think of the game.

On the one hand, the level of detail is mind boggling, bullet holes, blood splatter and the physics! Well the physics are just perfect tbh.

While these things are spectacular, it wasn't really enough to make me justify all the hype. I miss the planes, there's not even a Dodo to pretend to fly, and no tanks either? What the hell is that about?

The AI didn't really blow me away either, they might hide behind a wall for a bit, but aside from that, there's not much to them.

It makes me think they made this game, and intentionally left out a lot of good stuff, just to make the next game worthwhile. While I understand this as a business move, I felt a little cheated by Rockstar.

So for me, GTA: Vice City still stands at the top of the GTA Mountain.

I would best describe it as a GTA fans dream.3 of my friends have bought it (1 has completed it already !) and they all totally love it.They all agree it is without doubt the best GTA game yet.But (like me) if you didn't care for the earlier games this is unlikely to win you over.I played it for bit and it hasn't left me wanting to rush out and buy a copy.

I actually really want to play it now, it's GTA so it's going to be good.

Same here pb...miss my old photo :( So many comments on it :)

I have about 6 of those boxes of codes, but thanks for the offer.  Sure somebody would want them on here (Gamertag is JASON BRFC btw, so hope to see you online)

EDIT: just kicked a cop car, broke out of the arrest and they sprayed my blood all over their shiny police car :(  Only in America...or if you're wearing a backpack in London Underground :p

The GTA gamerpics and the Xbox live points are 2 separate codes.Ive redeemed the live points but not the GTA gamerpics.

Let me know an email address I can send it to if you want it or let me know your gamertag and I'll send it over Xbox live messaging.

Have you claimed the 500 points with it?  I have plenty of them so I won't be needing it. If you haven't cliamed the points - its worth doing for a cheap arace game/theme/pics etc.

Might just be worth downloading the GTAIV ones, some of my gamerpics I've used are for games I cannot stand.

I have an Xbox live code for some GTA Gamerpics.I got it when I pre-ordered a copy of GTA IV from Game which was for a gift for my mate (who isn't on live).I'm not a GTA fan at all so I'm not going to use it.Code can only be used once.I'll email to anyone that wants it.

They're probably gone now...

Saw how many game had left this morning (probably looked about 100 copies) and I'm sure they'll all be gone soon.

Just got the achievement of losing a 4-star wanted level :)  50 points in the bag :D

My mate works for a games company and we played a promo copy of it.  Looks sweet as you like.  Still, it has been a long wait since playing it five nights ago to actually buying it tonight.  I don't want to say too much about it as I want everyone to be as amazed as I was knowing as little as I did before trying it (please note, because I knew so little, it obviously has greater impact when you try the finished product...so a little shocked when I saw it :D)

yeah, I think they have.  I was driving around the airport for ages and ddn't find any to board.  This time the jets taking off and landing are actually registered on collision detection (on the prvious ones you could drive through what looked like a solid plane).  The effects are better though - worth looking at.

I think the newer model of 360 came out a few months after the Elite console.  All my time I was working for game I knew of one problem with an Elite (that's it!) and it being mine :/

thing is, MS didn't tell anybody that they've replaced the Red Ring Of Death with a Red Light of Doom -> Eeek

All new 360's *should* be ok, but you won't really know until about 6 months down the line. 

My friend's second 360 (the new one he got from MS after the first one RROD) went wrong 2 weeks ago and he was told he'd have to stump up £60 as it wasn't covered by a new warranty and didn't have the RROD.  Fortunately, it now has a RROD and can be replaced for free, even though the symptoms were exactly the same.

What's the betting that they'll replace with another older model though and after another 6-9 months that one will RROD too?!  I really think they should just replace broken ones with brand new models, but it would cost them too much.

Back to GTA and, yes, does look very similar on both machines, with just the question of who gets what downloadable content.  The 360 will also have Achievements while the PS3 will have trophies (for Home, which is getting a Beta release later in the year).

Yes?  I doubt 360 owners would be having much fun if the game said "Please insert game disk X" everytime they crossed the brooklyn bridge in GTA IV.  Multiple discs is only going to work if the game is linear eg Lost Odyssey or Microsoft drop the mandatory "game must work without hdd installation".

"For those wanting to know which version looks better, the edge goes to the PS3. The textures and framerate are comparable, but the PS3 has far less pop-in. The 360 has richer colors, but the PS3 has better anti-aliasing making it look a little cleaner. Because GTA IV can preload onto the PS3 hard drive, the in-game loads are faster. Don't worry Xbox owners, the load times are rarely more than 30 seconds and don't occur very often. The slight visual edge goes to PS3, but the 360 is no slouch. Either version will do you proud. "

This was taken from IGN review.

For a DVD game - it is fantastic. 

RROD has now become a very rare occurence since they released the Pro system (although, many still refer to the console as the Premium - although now with better CPU and HDMI ports.

I'm supporting the 360, although not actually had the chance to compare.

I'd love to share the console 50/50 Machie, but I don't start work for a month!

Thanks guys :) by the way do our 360s get RROD? I remember before blu-ray won the format war. It was all "360 is the best, PS3 is an utter waste". Yet I kept reading about this RROD and how people had to send their Xboxs away to be fixed :S WTH? Why are they bashing a console that works and supporting a console that's broken.

There's even lots of "I'm definitely getting GTA4 for the 360, I'm just hoping Microsoft return it to me in time as I had the RROD". :S

You'd think Microsoft rushing out a broken console would ruin their reputation but it seems people are quite happy to send away their 360s for constant repairs.

Sorry I'm ranting...

Oh I did read an article somewhere by the GTA creator. He didnt want to get involved with the whole "which console is better" but he did mention that they were worried about the storage capacity? Does he mean the HDD or that the 360 is still using DVDs?

It's probably just me but I feel like the 360 is holding back the PS3. I wonder how different GTA4 would be if it was PS3 exclusive.

I nearly bought a 360 just to play Mass Effect, glad I didnt in the end.  One game is never enough to justify it no matter how tempting I think.

Anyway, as far as play.com is concerned I think I read that they've already sold their GTA IV allocation (might be thinking of another retailer though) so maybe better looking for somewhere else to buy if you want it asap.

Ok, Machie.  Don't spend £200 on a 360....


...spend £319.99 on a GTA branded PS3 and game.  hehehe.

Assuming they've actually managed to truly iron out the problems with the 360, I'd buy one. (well, I already have one, but you know what I mean...)

Someone talk me out of spending £200 at Play.com and getting a 360 and GTA4. This is too tempting, I want to play the game but I need to save the money for my site.

Jason how about I crash at your place for a week, while you're at work I'll play and when you're home we can share it 50/50 okay? :)

Sounds good.

I'm still of the opinion that the extra content for the 360 won't be much to talk about unless it turns out to be completely new areas.

The PS3 will get extra content at some point too (without costing Sony $50m) though no details yet, but it has been confirmed by Rockstar.

Now if only the PSN cards had come out over here before GTA, they might have done a similar offer to the MS points.

Played a promo copy of it last night and it is FANTASTIC! 

Can't wait to play it Tuesday morning.  The level of detail is excellent, new ideas aplenty, realism, crime just everything down to the way the lead character jumps like a girl and the slow motion black and white death frames.

That's all I am saying as I don't want to ruin the many surprises the game will throw up.  Lets say there is enough to keep you occupied for months BEFORE actually playing any of the missions (we all had a life each and decided to just cause mayhem)

360 version should also net you 500 free microsoft points (some sort of pre-order promotion).

Just saw my ex-deputy manager and said he's keep a few 500 microsoft points back for me in exchange for my service on helping on launch night :)

Bit disappointed at hearing Splinter Cell conviction ahs been put back until October to ome out simultaneously with the PS3 version :S

Pre-ordered on PS3 in GAME.

Could just as well have gone for the 360 version.  May actually pre-order both and choose on the day!
