Like the 4th image. The car would look good if you could modify it.

Is it just me or does the ground in the fourth picture look very blurry?


Great expression in the first picture and they've surely done a good job on Niko's climbing (second picture).

I thought the 1st pic was an old one, turns out I was thinking of this screenshot - notice he has the exact same facial expression and is even holding the same gun, the screenshot shows him at the same angle too, just in a different location.

I found something on the 4th pic, and I thought it'd be good to let you guys see it:

It looks as if the tire is going through the solid floor. I'm not entirely sure, but something could be in the way.

Hmm.. They should have more then one position for every gun. Or at least a different expression. Depending on the sistuation for instance (by wanted level or something like that).
Otherwise it would get rather repetetive. Like the way CJ would fall from a motor bike in San Andreas.. always the exact same way (made it funny at times too, though).

To me that actually looks like the tire got shredded down to the rim.

is it just me, or is this look really wierd like cartoony? like the colours and the lighting and the clothes on niko?? or is it artwork? cant wait to hang off lorrys though!! gonna be awesome

1st and 3rd image looks good..

1st picture.. notice nikos hair line looks a little wierd..

notice in the third image how niko is leaning to the side that the car is turning..

but yes.. the car tyre in the 4th picture is sunk into the ground if you save the picture then zoom in you can see its the same texture as the road ( if you remember past pictures there were pictures where a policeman was inside a staircase * first trailer* and more recently you could see nikos wrist through his jacket so it doesnt surprise me that the car tyre is inside the ground * although it really shouldnt happen but they should be able to fix it* )... and the ground does look really blurry.. you would sorta expect them to create a really good looking sharp designs ( but different viriaties ) of road surfaces then just duplicate them.. instead of the blurry one thats boring.

5th picture.. i'm pretty sure thats an old one...

p.s i'm not complaining i love gta.. but i think they should sort out some of the glitches in the game or should do before release.

Wow, this game is getting worse and worse every screen...

Still, its not enough for a game to look bad, im sure its as meaty as ever in terms of gameplay and such...

Hardly a good way to represent the biggest game of 2008 though..

Hardly a good way to represent the biggest game of 2008 though..



i feel the same as you, i'm not blown away by this game anymore.. at first the info on it on what you could do was amazing then the first trailer came out but now it just doesnt seem to look that good. graphics arent everything.. blah blah.. but they do help and i was expecting a lot from this game graphics wise. they should really screen the images and flush out the ones that have glitches in them at least .

but to me the problem is the shading.. or colours or whatever you call it.. they seem very washed out if you know what i mean.. kinda hazy/whiteish . for a city it just doesnt seem to be alive with colour. it looks kinda like an old photo from like the 70's or something that has that washed out look.

but that might just be cause its playing on the crapbox. if they did it solely on ps3 would be a lot better graphically and detail wise. not to mention the millions more things you could fit into the game ( including planes and countryside which i'll miss i liked to get out of the city and mess around in the countryside in san andreas not having to worry about cops being around ) because of the blueray discs. not to mention the higher processing power. :)

i hope next one.. gta 5. they put it on the xbox elite and ps3.. cause then you can have the 15/30GB capacity on the HDDVD.. or the 25/50GB capacity of the blueray to work with. instead of 4.7GB that the xbox 360 limits it to.

A little something for Christmas, thanks.

Agree w/ TM on the tire, probably a minor graphics glitch. No surprise when you think about how big this will be
graphically speaking.

I don't recognize the car, is it new one or just an update of an old GTA car? It looks like a cross between a first gen
Camaro & a '76 Toyota Celica. :lol:

Y'know, we don't appreciate fanboyism around here. Just a heads-up. Also, the Xbox 360 uses DVD-9s, which have 9GB capacity. Which is plenty, considering the mammoth game Oblivion is only 6GB.

As for the fourth pic, the tire is definitely clipping through the ground. But it's only a minor graphical glitch that every game has. Now, the second pic....maybe we can finally climb up and over cars REALISTICALLY.

im not a fanboy lol.. i dont even have a ps3. and i understand that its a huge game and that it might be minor.. but still shouldnt happen specially after a delay of 6 months. game must be near complition if not complete and just finishing it off by now.
and i dont care too much about glitches because sometimes they can be funny.. and majority of the time you dont notice them ( like the tyre one if you were driving the car you wouldnt notice it happening ) .. my main issue with the game right now is the colours of it. and like i said .. the no countryside or planes, i was looking forward to an updated version of the hydra.

@Mark

The delay was partially because of the PS3 system, it was 2 weeks behind the 360 version.

Anyway the guy in the artowrk name 'Faustin' sounds a bit South American to me, maybe a Columbian.

Anyway the red car looks like an updated version of the Sabre I think, but I got to admit the graphics in some of the pics (especially 4) look blurred, might just be me like.

Nope, you definitely aren't alone..

I mean, i have always thought the graphics were stunning until now, shame.. :erm:

I aint losing interest in IV, i just hope Rockstar aren't being too lazy...

The more I see the more I want. I just wish I could get a PS3 with GTA IV for my birthday (April 20th). Im pretty sure it would be released before then. I like the second and third pictures the most. And about that car that looks like theres something in the way I think its just a flat.

Saber is as good a guess for the car as any. The Infernus has showed up in 3 variations since GTA3.

They look okay I guess, some look too similar to past shots though. The ground in the 4th shot is extremely blurry, the 1st shot looks identical to a previous shot, and the 5th shot is also similar to a previous shot, although it didn't feature Niko. The 2nd shot and the artwork looks great.

ya, i was expecting a march release date... and april 1st seems logical if you ask me.. cause by the time they finish the game-polish it off-start promoting and publishing- manufactor/produce the game discs-release them. that seems around a time scale required.. if in deed just a little over...

my expectation really was mid march ( around 18th) and it sucks that rockstar ( IF ITS TRUE) would release it so late into the 2nd fiscal quarter. but in the end if thats what it takes to create a masterpiece then thats what it takes. and besides i should of finished my exams ... or near enough by that time so i'm not fully complaining. university can occupy my time till then quite easily.

thanks for the info treemans.

although i'll still wait for an official release date.. i'm still pretty sure it'll be mid march.

to save time for people HERE IS THE WEBSITE IN ENGLISH

I am glad that on the world possibly firstly, I may declare it certainly already: Is that deuced official publication date! Yes dear guests, I may confirm it its views official already, 2008. April elsején, we get to it certainly already Grand Theft Auto the 3 version of 4 PlayStation. (valszeg*. It 360 one!)
That let me keep clear of it it potential being accusing, that I found out all stb. I would relate how this happened all:
Well all an very kind, already unemployed GameStop (Internet game department store) darling for who thank you can be said to an employee, who was like that, and two daytimes printed the 2008 game appearances treated confidentially so far entirely out before Christmas, and on the today's day without a fear, faithful to the paper form, published them. I got into the picture here well since my eye comes to a halt while I was looking at the list of the games appearing in the future two very much on a familiar piece:

04/01/08 Grand Theft Auto IV $59.99
*****04/01/08 Grand Theft Auto IV: Special Edition $89.9*********

Yes, this darling was an employee, was so neat and much somebody else, together with a game title concealed this far, the we by way of us already very much, but eagerly-awaited GTA 4 revealed it, moreover not only from the original shopper version, but enlightened us about the date of the collector expense yet.We say thank you for it hereby!) So that let everybody start saving up hard-working, or let him put a small one aside from the decks got for the Christmas because he will be everybody's need in April onto him, that let him be allowed to increase his ornate game collection by single newer GTA. I would say thank you for the attention, I hope for it you read this with a delight the who are good for,- for who news saddening small one though.

*Update 1: Seeing the ominous lists out naturally nobody let GTA not get sticked at 4 because we may happen upon many interests on them yet, for example that in the coming year the PS3 shapes big one then, and we may notice more games like that on the list if we are rather clear-sighted which ones they were not announced hitherto, or they did not add an official date to it. That not be left out from the good one, I fetched these lists for you:

********************
THERE IS JUST A LIST OF GAMES HERE

ALTHOUGH THERE IS ONE CALLED

"DESTROY ALL THE HUMANS : BIG WILLY" WHICH I FOUND AMUSING

OH AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW THE GTA 4 INFO IS ON THE 6TH PAGE ( 1 2 3 )
SO YEAH CHECK IT OUT IF YOU WANT BUT IT JUST SAYS WHATS ABOVE ( 4 5 6 )
ABOUT THE RELEASE DATE BEING 04/01/08
**********************

anyway hope that helped.. saved you having to translate it all

P.S I'M NOT HUNGARIAN I JSUT USED THE TRANSLATOR! SO THATS WHY IT DOESNT ALL MAKE SENSE.

You're so gullible.

The guy at the gamestore don't tell you shit, he's just out for your custom.

Either that, or someone made the story up to get respect / someone to suck his balls.

i dont like to be teased :(

besides, i said that i didnt believe it to be true and that i expect a mid march release date.
either its the official release date noted that leaked our but hasnt been made official yet.. or it really is just like retailers that make up a release date to make people buy a pre-order. which i think is probably more the reason.

just noticed something else about this photo.. besides looking kinda strange.

the lighting effects do look great in it though .. like over by the building with the shadows.

but notice that the telephone box doesnt have a shadow , yet the girl standing next to it does?

also, the elastic bit around nikos waist looks a lil stretched doesnt it? and if you compair it to the trailer its not as big as that either so maybe his jacket isnt a seperate part of his body like we thought it was. or maybe its something rockstar just hasnt gotten around to changing yet.

The Bossman 31st December, 2007 @ 19:55 - Permalink
Yeah, odd that the box doesn't have a shadow, but I guess it's a small thing they haven't corrected yet. And I think Nikos jacket is supposed to be like that, it's probably just a different style you can have, eg tight and zipped up or a little baggy, who knows?
