Posted ImageJust like they did 3 years ago with San Andreas, the folks behind GameInformer magazine have managed to acquire a world exclusive first look at Grand Theft Auto IV. Issue 169 for May will contain ten pages of screenshots and details.

That's all they're allowed to say for now, we'll have to wait until the issue is released before we can find out what the juicy details are. If you're going to be able to get a copy of it, let us know.

This is an American publication, so Ciaran you won't be able to get it, neither will I. Which is partly why I was asking if anyone here could get it. Preferably a subscriber so we have the info the day it comes out since they get it a week before usually, before it appears in stores.

I think OGTAM will probably get it, he know everything about GTA. I think he will get it anyway.

But are you a subscriber? Subscribers usually get the mag days before it goes on sale, if you aren't then it's likely someone elsewhere is gonna get the credit... and fame :P

LOL, King 2003 is trying to prove he knows the most about the GTA series and since ps3 player said,

"I think OGTAM will probably get it, he know everything about GTA. I think he will get it anyway."

He found that this is an opportunity to try to prove his "knowledge" of the GTA series by getting the magazine. Fortunately, my friend is subscribed to the magazine and will give it to me once he gets it, which doesn't matter because getting a magazine before someone doesn't prove you more knowledgeable.

Good try King 2003, but this wont prove that you know more. You need to find real ways to prove your knowledge of the GTA series.

I'm like King 2003's GTA history mentor. :D

Thanks everyone for trying to get it! :P Like Chris said to OGTAM: You're AWESOME! :D I'm gonna see if I can either buy of subscribe to the mag up here in Canada so I'll try to help but probably won't succeed. I just want to have it in my hands as I look over the exclusive preview and not on the computer screen. Can't wait for those screens though!

This is the downside about living in the Middle East, you don't get magazines like this! Oh well, someone will have to upload any interesting points of view.
10 pages of info! Seems like alot will be revealed.

Yeah man everything would be much, much crappier. Did you see all the cool things and graphics in the trailer? The PS2 would never be able to handle stuff like that. Tommorow I'm gonna find out if they sell GameInformer mags around here.

you know, you have a point there OGTAM, you should listen to him little_friend, have you ever played "just cause" ps2 version? the gameplay scaled down, and so is the graphic, there is no way in hell gta iv could fit in ps2

Although a word of caution, Rockstar may not like that, when I did that before GTANet was told to take them down, although rumor goes they took them down themselves just so other sites couldn't get them, the latter is probably true.
