Apart from a number of magazine scans and screen captures from the first official trailer, we haven't seen any proper screenshots of Grand Theft Auto IV yet. However, an article published recently by the NYTimes which discusses the exclusion of the Staten Island borough appears to have included with it the first digital screenshot we've seen of the game. The image (below), which has been printed in a couple of magazines already, seems to have been resized from it's (presumably) original HD version, nevertheless, it's still nice to see something nice and shiny. Let's hope we get some nice high definition screens soon.

Um, this is in GTAVI forum, " New detailed screenshot!".

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain,
for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

Um, there is no GTA6. Also, I'm the admin and I post news here, not sure if you noticed that or not.

Looks a bit like Staunton Island to me, but It could also be Portland. It's a nice screen, the graphics again are looking brilliant. But it would be nice to see some HD ones.

Well it shouldn't do because GTA IV doesn't have those two cities, specifically ;)

Sorry Chris.

The screen does look great. I assume we'll be able to ride the train. So, cool.

Carnage I don't think there is going to be a demo. That screen looks really good, I can see the start of mission now...with Niko meeting someone under the train tracks at the docks.

The article is kinda weird though, I think it's a little fudged. but interesting none the less

A very nice shot, that. If that is from the game in it's current state (around 66% complete) then that's incredible. I fully expect the rest of the game to look as beautifully detailed as that.

First to post doesn't always mean first to find.

Haven't we seen that shot before, though?

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

No we haven't, the reason why I'm so late posting is because: I'm a dumbass. I'll explain... :P

I subscribe to an RSS feed of Google News search for "grand theft auto" (link)
And I did in fact read the NYTimes article when it was posted, (at the time of posting this the link to the NYTimes article is on page 3 of that google news link above.)
I thought from the thumbnail it was just another trailer screen cap, only today when I saw other sites like GTA4.net had posted it that I realised it was indeed a new screen (I actually watched the trailer again to make sure, and we don't see the train from the angle shown in the screenshot, so it's definitely new. And I'm not sure, but I don't think it's been in any magazines yet either, I maybe wrong though.

@ganich: I appreciate you posting in the GTAIV forum to inform our users about this, but as you now know, I had already seen the article, just wasn't aware the screen was new at the time (Plus, I was hardly expecting NYT to even have a digital screenshot, sites like IGN are usually the first with them assuming there's no "fansite exclusives" this time round).

As you can see from many of the news posts you read on thegtaplace.com. I do give credit where credit is due - whether it be members of GTAF posting magazine scans, another website with an exclusive article, or whatever... hope that explains everything :)
And it's a pretty menial thing anyway, not like it's an awesome high definition screen showing something we've never seen before. We all need to lighten up and sit tight for the next batch of info/screens!

No Anon, I think you might have seen a similar shot during the opening of the trailer, which might have been the other way around e.g the train coming AT you, rather than away from you.

BAH! Beaten to it by Chris.

Actually, no, the screenshot has been seen before. It was in OPM. We didn't have a digital version, but we HAVE seen the screen before.

This screenshot has already been seen in the GameInformer magazine, but not as a digital image. Click for full size.

It is just a picture of a train and we saw a similar one in trailer, but picture looks good, too bad it is resized.

OK, I haven't seen the mag so I didn't know.
