A New Digital GTAIV Screenshot

24 posts in this topic

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.

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

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

Haven't we seen that shot before, though?

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!

Don`t worry Chris, we all make mistakes...nobody`s perfect...For all you`ve done fot TGTAP, that kind of mistake is 0...

I was sure I`ve seen that pic before, it was in the GI article if I remember correctly...

But I don`t get it, we`ve seen in the trailer a train right from the start, we`ve seen a train in the GI preview, and now even tough it`s the same pic from the preview (with more details and others) another pic with a train... Trains, trains, trains... Why are R* keep showing us trains ? Probably this has a meaning...

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.

Considering Gerard just posted a scan of the same exact image, I'm rather certain I saw the image.

That isn't Rockstar's doing, it's the magazine's work.

See those tall buildings in the distance?

I really wanna push a ped off one of those, then zoom in with a camera and take a picture... :lol:

Sorry, that was sadistic of me... :huh:

Train looks nice too, I reckon the train in the trailer was in Portland. If thats the same one, now I'm not sure.

Rockstar is holding out on us... ;)
