Today we have some updated artwork for you, courtesy of Microsoft after they recently updated the GTA IV page on Xbox.com to reflect the theme available on the Marketplace. First of all we have digital copies of the blade backgrounds, which I had taken photos of the other day. Unfortunately the images are quite small, but they're better than nothing at all.

In addition to this we have two of the artworks above on what appear to be actual screenshots of the game, the latter of which is currently being used as the banner on Xbox.com's GTA IV page:

Our artwork page has also been updated with these images.

Cool new artwork ...

I noticed there`s a difference, the updated picture with the chick sucking the lollypop has large building in the background but the first one has a building and some bushes too ...

The second is different too ... they changed the background .

Microsoft changed them for the GTA IV game page. Every Xbox game has a page at Xbox.com with a banner, when they make those banners they take screenshots/artwork and mix them togeather. And that's why the second picture is the sniper with a new backround. The lady with a new backround is another thing from the GTA IV game page as well.

Not definitely, there is a lot, and you can only fit so much on a cover.

i'm not sure, there are so many artwork, probably some of 'em will be

anyway, i know this is a stupid question. but in the previous GTA games, do you ever see an artwork with the main character in it? i know it doesn't make sense, but could Niko be another character? you know, the "not main character" one

seriously, this kinda creepin me out :nope:

this whole paranoid thing is killing me!

Yep, San Andreas had two, however it can be argued they are of other people, but in depth they are the main character:

2. http://www.thegtapla...th/splash04.jpg

3. He could also the be the front guy in this on but thats more doubtable.

Really? I just realised why I hadn't seen them until now. The UK xbox.com mirror hasn't been updated with them yet. Only if I visit then en-US site do I actually see them. So yeah, checked after the theme's release and there was nothing, only today when I saw other sites posting I realised they'd changed stuff.
Kinda retarded really to only update the US site.

As Chris said, thats the biggest we have at the moment, Rockstar haven't released any larger version to the public as of yet.
