The PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV was shown off at the Leipzig Games Convention today by PR man Steve Hahnel. New features are detailed below:
  • Much improved visuals, they'll be "polished well beyond what they were on the 360 and PS3".
  • The number of multiplayer slots may be expanded for the PC version.
  • The maximum resolution is 2560x1600.
  • The replay feature has been improved. Players can record 30 second clips and they can now add filters and adjust the camera angle using the replay editor. They can also make a montage of clips and upload them to the R* Social Club for others to view.
  • Players can finally filter multiplayer games more specifically (e.g. a deathmatches using a particular weapon).
  • The Xbox 360 controller is compatible with the PC version.
  • It looks like fingerless gloves have finally been added! Much to the delight of pretty much every player of the game! See this shot
10 new screenshots have been released, click the thumbnails below to see the large versions. These have also been added to our new GTA IV PC screenshot gallery.

Dude you're kidding right? It's been like the main feature request ever since we found out Niko couldn't wear fingerless gloves in the console versions, despite being shown in artwork. Makes him look badass etc. Come out from under your rock, fool.

The gallery isn't working, by the way.

Nice too see news emerging, though... can't wait to actually play this properly.

Man! I just bought a controller for the PC, and chances are it won't work/good with the PC version of GTA IV. Well, I'll be buying an Xbox 360 controller...

Hopefully they won't just port the gameplay and physics either. They need a full cleansing of problems and weird things included in the platform version.

I think this just needs a few bug fixes and a healthy dose of AA. Good news though.

If it has support for PS3 controllers, I might just go out and buy a Dualshock 3. Doubt it will though. f off microsoft.

I'm a bit dissapointed with the graphics.

I mean, they're not as realistic as consoles, people's fingers are "squared" and explosions seem fucked. This is just my opinion.

Looks like R* really listened to the fans. I bet they even browsed through our forums. ;)

This is good for the PC version but I feel sorry for the console versions, since they won't get these improvements and FINGERLESS GLOVES.

The game is still in early development, meaning it's a work in progress. Of course the graphics won't be as realistic YET, trust me, when they've finished, it will look soooooo much better. And also; graphics < gameplay.

el oh el. They probably just got millions of e-mails from impatient people asking for fingerless gloves and pc verzan of gta ivy! Fingerless gloves might come as DLC to the 360. And there's always time for a quick patch to improve stuff, but they probably won't.

I'm really dissapointed at R* for not patching trophies in or fixing the "Connection Lost" problem. I'd get GTA for PC but not only do I hate the controls for PC I also have a rubbish computer. Ah well the game looks pretty good and I'm impressed that they have managed to surpass the graphics of that on PS3 and Xbox.

Nothing to see here, move along

Just google 'How to use your PS3 controller for PC' and it should work. If they don't add support for normal SIXAXIS or DS3 controllers by just connecting the controller to your PC, I'll be mad. It didn't work for me because there's something wrong with my controller.

It started happening after I dropped it accidentally... from the top bunk. PC graphics will definitely be better and you could always turn some shiz off in the options. I really hope you can turn off the blurry oil painting effect but I doubt it. Maybe some kind modder will do it.

Would a laptop with 1.59GHz and 512mb of RAM, an Intel® Pentium® 1.60 GHz be able to run it? I don't think so... But this is going off-topic now.

You might be able to run it on lowest settings. It's unlikely though.
