GTA 4 Announced


Recommended Posts

He's taking his, er, clothes off. Well, jacket. "Yeah yeah yeah" he syas. He shows his Halo 2 tattoo. "You thought it was fake." Oh god. It's not on his chest, surely.

"Some guys do rubber ducks, some guys do tattoos," he jokes. His new one: Grand Theft Auto IV.

Okay, wasn't Halo then. Forgive me eh? But hell. October 16th 2007 in North America, October 19th 2007 Europe. GTAIV. "The first date it's available."

Available on 360 "from day one". So presumably it's on the others too. Strategic partnership for exclusive episodic content on Live Marketplace, though.

Am I the only one that finds these quotes really vague. All I got from it was...

A. Shitty Tattoo

B. GTA 4 (4? Shouldn't it be 7?) Announced

(EDIT: Or even 8 if Liberty City Stories is included.)

C. It's coming out on XBOX 360

D. "So presumably it's on others too." Does that mean it'll be on other systems or an exclusive? (Exclusive is doubtful considering it's as much a staple to Playstation as Halo is to XBox.)

E. Some exclusive content on the marketplace.

Did I get all that right or am I missing something?

Oh, so it's basically gonna be a whole new story rather than a "continuation" like 3, VC, SA, and LCS was. I got it now.

As if the 360 didn't have enough cock-boinging games in development, this was a legitimately shocking announcement. I think everyone gasped at E3.

Anyways, I expect this 'episodic content' to be pricey, so I don't have my hopes up too high. At least this time they'll finally make GTA with as good a graphics as storyline/fun. Even if it is multi-platform release (since the PS3 should also be graphically explicit).
