Rockstar announced release date for GTA 4

On April 29, the controversial video game publisher will release the long-awaited fourth installment of its best-known, and most popular, video game, “Grand Theft Auto IV.” “We are so excited to be releasing ‘Grand Theft Auto IV,’” Sam Houser, founder and executive producer of Rockstar Games, said in a statement. “We’ve pushed ourselves very hard to make something incredible, and hope the game sets a new benchmark for interactive entertainment.” The game will be available on both the Xbox 360 and PlayStation3, and Amazon.com is already accepting pre-orders. In the past, both Rockstar and the developer behind it, Take-Two, have been blasted for violent and sexually explicit content in the game.

In 2005, critics took issue with a “secret” sex scene in “Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,” that was easily unlocked by gamers. Ultimately, the Entertainment Software Rating Board changed the game’s rating from Mature to Adults Only. Most stores refuse to carry games with an Adults Only rating. The rating for the latest “Grand Theft Auto” game is still being determined, according to Rockstar’s Web site. The game isn’t the only one of Take-Two’s franchises to be criticized over violent content. In 2007, the violent imagery of “Manhunt 2,” which chronicles the ultraviolent killing rampage of an escaped sociopath from a mental hospital, stirred worldwide controversy. Is this going to be the game of the year? I really hope so…

    Disloyal bastards to the PC!
    GTA started on the PC and now they are actually putting the console versions ahead of it!? !?

    January 25th, 2008 | 12:05

    @9MAT Mate don’t think it is going to be released on PC after all the base of this game is tottaly for PC’S and it was also announced first like a PC game :P seems that the consoles will be the first ones to have it though :( anyways THE GREATEST SERIES EVER!!!!!

    PS3 emulator, lol?

    PS2 emulators barely even work and I have never even heard or seen a ps3 emulator, good luck with that. Be better just to get a ps3 then have to use an emulator and run the game slower :/

    Where the hell have you been since gta 2? Starting with gta 3 all gta’s have been consoles first, and with that, playstation first. Every single one of them. I think gta4 is the first to be cross platform at launch.

    There will be a pc version, probably a few months down the road. There is no, and will be no, ps3 emulator. Your pc can’t hope to match the power of the ps3, let alone run it’s own OS AND emulate the ps3.

    Don’t hold your breath.

  25. dudeboy
    January 25th, 2008 | 12:50

    I hope they don’t make a PC version. I can’t believe how overrated these games are. With the exception of the very first GTA game, these are the most boring and overhyped games ever released. I doubt this new one will be any better. All they did with the two other GTA3 games was to add more useless crap that had no effect on gameplay.

    @25.Dudeboy

    Mate, what are you getting your clueless info from?

    You said it yourself, “GTA3 games”… these were simply expansions, but great expansions at that.

    GTA4 is the official sequel to GTA3. meaning improved engine, physics, scale, and from what i’ve read, better storyline with more depth. They’ve been working on this game since the original GTA3…

    I actually think you should stick to your guns and avoid this game as you have so little hope that it will be any good.

    PC users will probably have the game released around October-November, that’s the best time frame for a PC game. Rockstar will most likely announce the PC version this summer so until then there will be nothing official.

    #17 – Actually he may well have an advance copy, focus testing has or will start soon at Rockstar, I have a friend that works at R* North and was invited to focus test, but couldn’t because of uni.
    Anyway I suppose it’s good news for GTA fans, personally I get bored of them real quick.
    Anyway lol at all the folks saying they’re going to emulate it.

  43. never console
    January 25th, 2008 | 14:50

    I cant for the life of me understand why console people think they know something we PC people don’t. Every friggin game that Ive ever played that were released for both, is just all around better on the PC, its just that simple.

    and the mods, are you kidding me? why would I want to play on a console?

  44. thrashie
    January 25th, 2008 | 15:03

    seems more logic to me that consoles get the games first coz those things have limited hardware variety… while most pc’s have different hardware, OS and drivers which all need to be supported

    You are either very young or very dumb, or both. Sure PS3 was an ok platform at release, but it’s getting old already. Won’t take long until an affordable PC can emulate it. Question is WHY someone would want to do that other than nostalgia.

  52. godfella
    January 25th, 2008 | 16:01

    almost all of you should be reacting to the article, not flaming and whining about how your pc is better than ps3, ps3 is better than xbox360 and finally xbox360 better than pc ;]]

    for me its a blessing, i dont know why [of course i do ;], but the idea of a functioning, living city, where you can just drive and obey all the rules, or cause some very, very splendid carnage was there since GTAuno. And then came San Andreas along and maan was that addictive or not? But after a while it got repetitive, for me it was because of the programming engine[bad physics, models...]. And come on if you emulating city you need more than 50 faces ;]. But I have a feeling, that this will be some serious sack of a very potent sh*t. peAce

  55. ajaibman
    January 25th, 2008 | 16:17

    The way cell processor processing data is way different than Intel/AMD does.

    This was carried over from PS2. So the closest PS3 emulator would be running better on RISC processor based hardware like HP-UX or previously Digital Alpha processor.

    Let put this way, Intel/AMD architecture geared towards DOS/Wintel environment, while RISC like Sun SPARC (another example) was designed to accomodate 64 bit open source OS like UNIX and its Variance (linux for example)

    Right? :]

    the pc version will be out about 6 months after console version

    original release date was 3.3.2008, so this is already 2 months pushed back

    will try to wait and download the version to play on the pc rather than purchase the ps3

    Btw, does GTA 4 have some sex scene hid in just like San Andreas ?

    … and them Consoleros even have that great game Halo !!! That´s sooo unfair ;o)

    My fav GTA was/is/will be the 2nd. And sure there will be a PC release, fully agreed #66. Milk the cow on every teat, they will.

    #52: “where you can just drive and obey all the rules, or cause some very, very splendid carnage” I choose No2, that´s most fun … and that´s also why I don´t like NFSpro, no free rides and cop-f**king? Shuvitupya..!!
    As a German Im used to playin the US-versions, they (honestly!) are less censored: corpses don´t just disappear after bleeding green and no cuts, human foes, all missions! Imagine that!! :o )

    Really looking forward to GTA4pc, R* take your time and make it good!!

    At everyone who says you are gonna use a PS3 emulator..i doubt there is a computer out there that’ll run windows with PS3 games running on it with an emulator..
    and even if u did the disc would be unreadable without a blu-ray drive!

    and for all those who said PC is better cause the game is free its gonna be free for me with my modded XBOX 360 so HAH!!!!

    Can’t believe there are still gulllible ppl believing bullcrap propaganda from Sony.

    Get the facts right. If both Sony and MS wanted, CPU-wise, the most powerful console ever, they would have used x86 processors like xbox did in the past.

    They don’t do it because.

    1. x86 CPU cost more to produce.
    2. x86 CPU isn’t optimized for gaming (so they claim)
    3. They might have legal issues regarding intellectual property on the console.

    and more maybe.

    why fight it consoles only get the games first nowadays coz they know they can make money… us pc owners download our games for FREE… free movies, music & games… why on earth do u want a ps3 where u HAVE to buy things for it to work… ok if u get it chipped or wotever u can work around it… but thats hassle and then ur warranty is void.. why bother…

    I agree with 10, it is pc blasphemy that they go console first, although I see the point as it is more of a pain to pirate consoles than pc games, but when you want to talk customization, mods, and updates, PC is the KING.

    still cant believe 39 thinks it was on ps1 first, what are you like 14yrs old ore something? get back in your moms bra dumbass.

    Lol, I was 22nd comment and posted that there isn’t a ps3 emulator. I wake up this morning with this page still on my laptop and refresh it only to find another 100 people agree with me :D

    I have a ps2 emulator and that is still pretty lame at some times compared to an actual ps2. If someone actually somehow managed to run a ps3 emulator the cost to do so would be a lot more expensive then a ps3 :/

    Yes there will be a PC version, but like all other GTAs it will be 6 months to a year after the console release date :( It is utter and complete BS as PCs are by far the best gaming system. They make XBox and PS3 look like chump change.
    On a good note, Assassins Creed is coming out on PC in March, and Dead Rising should be soon after.

    What Rockstar did NOT anounce is that

    YOU CANT PLAY THE GAME WITH ANOTEHR CONTROLLER THAN THE XBOX-CONTROLLER!

    yeah, yeah, the keyboard is supported …. is this a mean joke by rockstar?
