Posted ImageIssue #153 of PLAY, the UK publication we reported on last month because of a printing error with the IV logo is now out. The 5 page preview provides a couple of interesting tidbits, in what is otherwise full of information we already know about.
  • Niko's cousin Roman is thousands of dollars in debt
  • Niko's mobile phone has the ability to receive text messages and also has a camera which you can take pictures with.
  • In next month's issue (available on 14th June 2007) PLAY will feature an exclusive preview of the game which they are hyping up quite a bit
Thanks to MattyBlog for the scans.

  • The magazine emphasises how realistic pedestrians reactions are, and how none of them seem to look identical
  • In next month's issue (available on 14th June 2007) PLAY will feature an exclusive preview of the game


Peds stuff we already know about but I really like the idea of text messaging, nice and modern, and the camera bit s excellent but I hope genereal cameras are not axed because of phone cameras.

Yeah I know we knew about the peds... needed filler really because it's such a short news post :P
I think I'm gonna take it out now again since I just realised I've contradicted myself somewhere...

Isn't the information in Play just what they took from other magazines / the web? I don't see how this can be worth posting. We already know an option on the mobile phone is a camera, so that was just a pretty easy assumption of them, as is the text messages one.

Also, we have heard numerous times that Niko is in thousand of dollars in debt, as is that info on pedestrians, which EVERY preview talked about, though I see you took that down now.

Seems like it yeah and they are so late with the preview.

Some of the stuff we have heard before but I don't think I specifically mentioned it in my previous news posts, if I did then this just reiterates it.

^^^ Good to see a fellow South African!


Cool. Like the text messaging idea too. Will we be able to send messages aswell?

Cool, I actually like what Rockstar is doing with this. I already can't wait to play this single player. Now all we need is a confirmation of online multiplayer and every part of my keyboard will be sticky.

Excellent.I wish we could send SMS not only reacive...That would be really interactive.It would be cool if
we could invite friends on a party or something.

The camera sounds good, I always got annoyed when you wanted to take a picture of something but couldn't because theres like one place where the camera spawns. As long as they save onto your hardrive so there viewable and can be moved to your computer.

Nothing to see here, move along

Because companies set up 1 preview to give to all the magazines that want it, saving themselves time and money. Anything 'new' we get from any mags with the same previews are simply details which other mags failed to mention. That's how it works. Yes it's kinda lame, to get any real new info we have to wait until the next round of previews begin which will be some time next month I'd imagine.

Wait wait wait. Didn't it say recieve, not do text messages......? Well, I think it'll be like informing a mission or something, like Like your girlfriend texting you also. Well, I have the GI mag and I liked it alot. Andd all these new IV stuff, just finished reading them. Good work.

Edit: Sorry but what console(s) will have online play for GTAIV?

Well both PS3 and Xbox 360 have online capabilities so I'm almost 100% sure both of them. The idea of text message s is great and an idea for sending them could be having preset messages like: "I need back up, come now!" (to gang members) or something else. I think this would make the game much more interactable. The camera on the cell sounds nice since we won't have to look for a camera anymore but have it all the time on the phone now. Everything else is old info but still great. :)

Ya, I hope it's more innovative then the SCARFACE cell(which was hella fun) but I thought that it said you can RECEIVE(outdid my self with the highlighting :P) messages. But if I can like type in and say get backup I'm more than happy to take it :)

To tell GTA fans the truth this GTA game so far looks so much different than A GTA I'm scared it won't do great like I have felt to this exact day. And it'll not play like a GTA and literally not be a GTA with all these new weird features that were in The Warriors(sorta) and Mark Echo's getting up and so on. I started to feel more hyped about Halo3 which I've hated(well just disliked them) until' today. Is that something that comes with depression? I've kinda felt depressed lately not to be offtopic....

I feel ashamed to say this too.

Yeah I saw that it said you can receive text messages. But if you could send them, that's what I would want.

I don't think these new features are too much, it's just because we're moving onto next-gen and just improvements. I'm sure R* would mess up something as huge as GTA IV. We'll see in a couple of months.

I really doubt if we could SEND text messages, but if we could it would be great but how could you type the text message?

Yeah, like the communication options in battlefield 2.

@Nat10

I see what you mean. Too many new feats and a lot of change can lose the spirit of GTA. Personally I think this GTA is going to be a bit steril, with less swearing and less funny ways to kill people, if you know what I mean. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
