Some exciting news for you here folks, Rockstar have updated the official site with a countdown to the first trailer! The URL has changed to end in "IV", and an improved logo is now in place with the time underneath counting down to the 29th March at 11pm GMT (you can work out from this what time it will be for you).

Could "IV" be something more significant than just '4'?


Check it out at http://www.rockstargames.com/IV and discuss this exciting news in our forums.

It certainly sticks me odd that they have changed the URL from gta4 and gtaiv to just IV. There may be a more of a reason for it, and is it just me of does the style/font they have chosen for the IV text seem to have a "English" look and feel? Maybe a pointer to the location?

Chris has his ways of making sure he has the news first. He's very smart when it comes to that ;).

I didn't get any e-mail, goes to show you how popular I am.

Sorry my first post made no sense by the way.

Yeah, Chris has some sort of spy bot or something that he has over the official sites.

Why don't you just get on the Grand Theft Auto mailing list?

I received the email at exactly 23:20 from the mailing list. I was busy with something at the time so couldn't post until just before midnight, looks like most other GTA sites got it around the same time anyway. But as I always say, it's not that we're having some sort of race against each other, it's about getting news to the fans as soon as we can.
Regarding when you get the email: Remember there are tens of thousands of people subscribed to updates, they can't possibly send all at once, so they're sent a batch at a time at I would imagine 5 or 10 minute intervals, until all are sent.

I was also going to say that it looks like R* are taking the same stance as they did with LA Noire. That is to release a 30 second trailer just showing some views of a city, and possibly a few characters. Then some weeks later, a full 2+ minute trailer will be released. Then a couple of other sites noted this point and it looks like I'm copying, so there, we have it in the comments instead...

Well like I said on my site, we'll probably get some info before the first trailer is released. So we could possibly expect some little info before the trailer.

Surely great news.. A lot of news about gta IV last days. Hope they don't rush it though, rather have a delay then a game with lots of bugs.

Delaying a trailer is something I've never heard of. I would imagine the trailer has already been made, and the countdown is there just to build hype. Which it is doing fantastically well, just look at this topic.

Also, it does look a lot like the way they went with L.A. Noire, so I don't think we'll be getting any screens or other info this month. You can bet your house on the fact that we, or more specifically myself, will analyse the hell out of the trailer on the 29th March when I post about it, trying to get as much info from it as possible. Which may be difficult if the trailer is just showing the city or something. We'll have to wait a couple of months for a proper trailer I think.

Like a few of us have pointed out, it's kinda strange how strongly R* are emphasising this IV part of the game. From 1999 onwards we always knew it as GTA4. Then last year when it was officially announced, it was printed as GTA IV, using the roman numeral as opposed to the number. At this time we were still accessing the official site at rockstargames.com/gta4...
Recently, R* acquired the domain gtaiv.com off it's previous owner who was trying to earn money off it.
Now, they have even changed the URL we access the official site to be rockstargames.com/IV - it seems weird that this would just be to emphasise the fact it's the 4th game. I think there might be something more to it. Anyone else care to think what it could mean? Will there be 4 cities? 4 countries? Does IV stand for something?

Might be looking too far into it, but you never know with Rockstar. I'm loving the hype though. It's great to see the community so excited and full of life again.

No, You shut up, The logo looks nothing like its going to take place in 80'S or 90'S or something. I can just tell by the logos in which decade its going to take place, But Chris may have something there, I mean the UK does have IV countrys right? Though it may be Las Venturas.

How can you tell by the logo where the game will be set?It`s ridiculous.The GTA III logos where the same only with a name added,eg.GTA Vice City & GTA San Andreas & the games wheren`t set in the same city/date.So how can you know by judging the new logo?

Just to clarify I wasn't talking about the logo in my post. I agree that you can't ascertain anything from it. It's just two letters in Pricedown font with a gradient and some embossing. This has no ties with any particular time period or location. My point was to do with R*'s emphasis on the IV.

Arguing on the Internet is like.... yeah we all know the ending but seriously guys, this is exciting news, discuss it. No need to argue about it. You're the ones looking like noobs now. Calm down children. Stop arguing and going off topic, instead, post your thoughts.

That sounded extreemly childish... Just drop it.

I don't really think there's anything special to the 4, it's just a new serie in my eyes. A full new story.
And I truly hope there will be more then 4 city's. 4 would be a waste of the potential for the 360 and ps3.

Pricedown it is NOT (I use it all the time ;) ). Looks like something from the Helvetica family, personally.

It makes sense that it would be different, since the "III/3" series of games (III/VC/SA) was always intended to be trilogy. So I agree the the IV is significant somehow, if only to mean it's the start of a new series.

Yes, it is Pricedown, always has been. The 'I' and 'V' do have slight modifications, the I's in GTAIII were also modified... There's a few different versions of Pricedown I believe, the one we all have is the free one.

"I use it all the time" as well ;)
ceedj's photo
ceedj 2nd March, 2007 @ 19:31 - Permalink
Well, if it's modified, then it's not really Pricedown, is it? :lol:

Anyway, my point was that Pricedown is a Sans-Serif font, and the IV obviously has Serifs on it, so there ya go.

Not a big deal. I'd be more than happy to agree to disagree. :blush:

Chris 2nd March, 2007 @ 19:35 - Permalink
Haha yeah I meant to add at the end of my post that it doesn't really matter if it's Pricedown or not, I see your point anyway. But meh... who cares at the end of the day. The most important thing is that we're getting a trailer for a game we've been waiting nearly 3 years for :)

I would agree with you 100% if London was released after GTA 2 making it part of the GTA 2 sequel...but GTA 2 didn't have a sequel...the first GTA did...and then that had its own little expansion pack sequel...I think. My topdown GTA history is a little rusty.

I wouldn't be surprised if Rockstar's servers went down. They went down for San Andreas stuff a couple of times I remember, and I think possibly once or twice with LCS/VCS.

The amount of sites linking to it though is going to be immense.

The trailer could also give us hints of the next location, any famous landmarks? A billboard saying "Welcome to ...". There is so many possibilities :s

Yeah... PS3 or Xbox 360, good question man, I got no idea. Maybe PS3, I don't know man, first of all, no PC-version has been announced, but I hope it will come out someday. And I don't think the graphics will be identical on both PS3 and Xbox 360, PS3 has more power so my guess is PS3.

I don't know man, somewhere on the internet I guess. I mean, the PS3 has more power if we're talking about specs you know, but I don't know man, some of the Xbox 360 games really looks great you know, but I still think the PS3-version is going to look better you know.

I would imagine the PS3, they've always favoured the PlayStation in the past.

We hope that the graphic is gonna be the same at the XBOX 360, PS 3 and PC.

Well of course they won't be the same, they never have been.
Previously it's been like this in order of graphical goodness:
1. PC
2. Xbox
3. PS2

No' I think that XBOX 360 has more power.

I think you need to a little research, PS3 is more powerful mate.

From what I've heard the PS3 is twice as powerful as the Xbox 360.

Yes well, depends on what sort of stuff you're looking at to say it's "twice as powerful"


Anyway after reading all your comments I thought I better explain something that was on my mind, regarding graphics comparisons between the 2 consoles and also the PC.

First of all, if for the PC, that will of course have far far superior graphics, and will be the best platform to play the game on. Now, here are the considerations for the console formats. You may want to read this. Before you do, for those of us who have a PS3 AND a 360, I should tell you that later in the year I will be writing an article comparing the two, and that should help you make a choice. Here's a tidbit from it concerning graphics. If you don't wanna read it all then the answer is PS3 is better... here's why.

One of the limitations game developers have is the amount of physical space available to them. The PS3 uses Blu-Ray discs, these have a huge 25GB available (50GB if dual layer). This is a LOT of storage. It is likely that Rockstar are developing GTA IV primarily on the PS3, and then optimising for the 360....
The Xbox 360 uses DVD's, and a DVD gives developers 4.7GB of storage to fill with game files and textures and what-not, or 8.5GB if dual layer (you may get different capacities from different sites but the point is this isn't much space).

With this in mind, say if R* filled up a 50GB Blu-Ray disc... what about the 360? How will they fit all this data on? Compress the textures and have worse graphics? Yeah, that is one way. It's likely this is going to be the case if the game is going to be as big as we think it is. Additionally, the 360 doesn't have HDMI output, and instead the "HD" comes from component cables, the PS3 does have HDMI output, so from that you get true high definition.

Having said all that, unless you own an HD ready TV, you aren't really going to notice much difference in graphics, as they won't look as good in the first place.

But does what I just said make sense? And can you understand why the PS3 is probably going to have slightly better graphics?

Brilliant... So I made the right choice.

But on the topic of the GTA:IV Trailer, Do you think it will show any of the main characters? Plus I just realised this topic may become more popular than the actual game release. :lol:

There are other factors to consider though. There are a couple of points which are massively in favour of the 360 version. Personally, I still haven't decided which version I'll go for, knowing me, I'll end up buying both! But yes, wait until I've written my article which will cover a lot more factors than just graphics.

I think it may show the main character, however, when I was thinking about previous games, I remembered the first Vice City trailer, which showed a bit of gameplay, some scenes with Tommy in. Mix this up with how little was revealed in the first LA Noire trailer, (this was a very small teaser).
The full trailer for LA Noire obviously had what looked to be a whole action sequence, I'm not sure if this countdown is counting to a small teaser or a full trailer, we'll have to wait and see.

Oh and yes I actually laughed at the news stats, in under 24 hours this topic became the most commented on news topic in the history of TGTAP. Now after 2 days it is nearing 100 comments. http://www.thegtapla...?order=comments

Guess what, a dual layer Blu-Ray disc costs 65$. At least, here. That just for ONE disc!

How does R* want to get any profit's with that. But that prices will drop soon though.. That's what I think that is.

Is that the cost in stores. Because I doubt that whatever company that makes them would charge retail price for Rockstar.

Sorry to interupt but your totally wrong I think in the UK it will be £40 because I havel alread spoke to GAME and GAME STATION and they said that would be the price at first but some games could be £35 anyway it is cheaper than the 360 games which are £50 here - what a rip off!!!!

Thats wrong, I have already asked the guys in GAME and GAME STATION and they said PS3 games would be £40 when they come out first so GTAIV would be £40 whereas 360 games be £50 when they come out so I expect the 360 version to be more expensive than the PS3 version
Sorry for going off topic
BTW will the trailer be shown the same time for everyone or different times according to the timezones?
Chris's photo
Chris 4th March, 2007 @ 22:29 - Permalink
Yes of course it's going to be at the same time for everyone. The countdown is counting down to a time which is on R*'s server, it's not going by your computer clock. So as I gave the time 11pm GMT in the first post, from that you could all work out what it was for your timezone, which some people have done, some people are still confused, but hopefully that clears it up.

Also, please take your retail price talk elsewhere in the forums, it does not in this topic, which is for discussion of the trailer. Clearly this is quite popular, and I hope you guys are all gonna be as talkative on the 29th March :)

Depends, if it's JavaScript (which the Flash (.swf) framework runs on) then it will by the users computer. But if not, and they have coded it different, which I think they probably have, then it will be by the server time. Either way, turning your computer to that day won't show you a trailer, they wouldn't put it on the server yet. Not until 2 minutes before or so. The code for it probably isn't even done yet.

Yeah that was the entire point of my post. Of course they aren't stupid enough to base the countdown on the USER'S computer time. It's coded in Flash, and it uses Rockstar's server time, therefore it's counting down to the same time for everyone. If you're in a different timezone to Rockstar's server, the time shown on your clocks will be +/- a few hours, that's the only difference. It's not a particularly difficult concept to grasp. Let's stop talking about it now before we lower the average IQ here even more.

The countdown will end at the same time all-over-the-globe.Only that when it reaches 00:00:00 it will be almost midnight in London(23:00 or 11 ),1:00 in the morning in my country Romania,2:00 in Moscow,7:00 morning in Beijing,8:00 in Tokyo,15:00 in Los Angeles (29 march)& in New York and Washington about 18:00 -29 March.So in some countries it will be 30th March while in other 29th March.I hope I wrote them correct,if not sorry.Theese cities are only some EG.

Well that last 24 hours, I'm gonna have the countdown up and I'll be waiting until that last second where it changes allowing us to view it...although I might have to refresh once it hits (0,00,00,00).

Lau, I really understand what you're saying and all, but GTA IV is right now only announced for the PS3 and Xbox 360, yeah I know. But you should know that GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas came out for PC a year after it's PS2 release, so there is a big chance we will see a PC-version in 2008. And if you ask me, yeah I think it's going to come out a PC-version of GTA IV, but I can't say when it will come, probably 2008 or 2009, we'll see. :)

GTA4 won't be maxing out the PS3 or the X360. There is no need for Microsoft to make a new console so that the Xbox platform will be able to support Grand Theft Auto 4, the 360 will do just fine. The PS3 isn't as powerful as some think, I don't know why some constantly think it's the "superior" console just because it has a BluRay player.

Well that could actually be on opinion, people might like the BluRay player and that'd be the reason for getting a PS3. I got it because I hate Xbox and I need a consol for GTAIV.

EDIT: Woohoo almost just 2 weeks left! :dribble:

Sure, an opinion it may be, but that's not what I'm getting at. People actually believe and have said, as if they are pointing out a real fact, that the PS3 is the superior console, which is wrong. There is no way, at this time, we can tell which console is more superior. I know some people may hate the Xbox and some people may hate the PS3, but fact is fact. People can like the PS3 more, but I hate people that say it's better, as a fact, because they think it is. Same goes for the Xbox fanboys/girls. I don't know, it just bothers me. /endsrant

Two weeks and 16 hours until our first real source of info on this game. I can't wait.

I can't see them working with Blu-ray, personally. And if they do, they're stupid. First off, they'd get a lot of shit about "copying". Second off, it's an expensive medium as it is that isn't even needed yet. Besides, Blu-ray is about to eat it's own shit.

I never said I hate Sony. It's funny how I'm accused of being some MS fan-boy when the ONLY consoles I own are a PS2 and PSP. Odd, eh? I'm saying the PS3 is not a God of a console. The 360 isn't bad. It isn't even super inferior to the PS3 like you guys like to believe. On top of that, I personally despise Microsoft. How's that for making you look stupid? On top of all of this, I didn't say I hated Bluray. I said, and I quote, "Second off, it's an expensive medium as it is that isn't even needed yet."... I said it was expensive and not yet needed. And when it comes to disks, there are higher-capacity disks being made. Ones like make Bluray look like a floppy disk.

They are working on DVDS that can be played in standard DVD players that are higher capacity than Bluray. No need to upgrade your player.

Empty the sand from your vagina, stop talking about consoles, and look forward to the trailer.

So almost 8 days `till that magic day -29March 2007.The best trailer was the 1st one of SA,better than other`s GTA trailers...Altough VC was a masterpiece it didn`t had a great trailer.I defenetly want to see in GTA 4 Trailer how the player walks down the street with a rocket launcher and parallel with him in the air it`s a heli....best part of the SA trailer should be in GTA 4 trailer is all I wanna say ,but maybe it`ll put other things more interesting.

Someone asked me if I`m from USA,well not,USA is far away (5-6000 km)...Eastern EU is where I live
BTW
I just don`t get it how a few days ago I callculated that the trailer countdowm will end at 1:00 (Chris said it`s gonna end at 23:00 GMT-and my time is +2 GMT so it should end at 1 but now it`ll end at 00:00 .The hour here hasn`t changed.Now it`s 9:08 and the trailer shows 09:02:51:16 .The trailer will come 1 hour earlier

The GTA III trailer has a weird ass song but makes me want to buy it since I've actually never played it but since it's so old now, I doubt it's in stores anymore.

The Vice City trailer went slow but picked up as the trailer went on. That was great.

The San Andreas trailer really got dramatic on the last 20 seconds.

The Liberty City Stories trailer was excellent and really cought me in playing it again. Though, that was the PS2 trailer.

The Vice City Stories trailer was the best in music choice. Not really as dramatic but gained the feel of Vice City again. I need to watch the VCS PS2 trailer and see what it has.

I think the GTA IV trailer might start boring but get dramatic in the last parts of it.

2.GTA Vice City Stories Trailer-the soundtrack of the trailer fit perfectly with the action inside...
3.GTA III Trailer-cool
4.GTA Vice City Trailer-cool but for a game like VC it could of been better
5.GTA Liberty City Stories Trailer-not to cool

Only more than a week to find out if the GTA 4 Trailer will be better...

You can buy GTA III on most of the online gaming stores. OGTAM, you got a point there, and yeah man I've been thinking about it too. R* has never released a trailer this early, why? Maybe it's because of the enormous hype? But wasn't the hype for GTA III also pretty damn big? Well I hope it's going to show as much as the past GTA trailers, but we'll see. If this is just a small trailer or something, the next up-coming trailer will probably be the real deal.

Are you crazy? GTA IV will have NO competition. NOTHING!
Rockstar has the unbeatable recept for the almight GTA and no matter how hard other people try, it can NOT live up to the GTA series.

Untill now, every GTA release has been awarded to "Game Of The Year". And so will GTA IV.

Go R*!

No it doesn't mean AO anyway. 18 is the highest rating in the UK and Europe, that's what all the violent games get. In the USA, they have M which is 17, and AO which is 18. Quite what different 12 months age difference makes is beyond me, but you can't really compare EU ratings with US ones is the point I'm making.

No it's not bullshit, nor is it confusing. I don't understand what's so hard to grasp about different countries having different ratings.

USA uses ESRB - They haven't rated the game yet, hence the RP (Rating Pending)
EU uses PEGI - They don't have a higher rating than 18+, and R* know the game will receive this, so they might as well stick that logo on now, plus there is no "rating pending" logo to use either.

Now Germany are an exception because they have incredibly strict laws on violent games, which is strange in comparison to other countries who you'd think would be stricter, but that's probably why they haven't put a logo on that mirror yet.

As long as R* don't go putting sex into the game we can pretty much rest assured that in the USA it will receive an M rating.

Now Gycu, tell me, why are you so concerned over the US rating when you live in Romania, no offence intended, but not only is your country renowned for pirating games and movies, it's in Europe, you guys use the PEGI rating... If you're going to buy the game you'll need to be 18 unless you buy online.

if it is, is there a rerun of the trailer, or we can watch any other time?

because, if it's 12:00 midnight on america, it would be 12:00 at noon in my country, which means i'm still in school

did someone know about this????

if the trailer comes out when i'm in school, it's worth nothing if it's not downladable or "watch for free' kind of thing, tihs kinda makes me curious :'(

Yeah I'm pretty sure it's going to be rewatchable. Because think of all the other people who missed it, it will be thousands of people and just because they had school. So don't worry man. It'd be really stupid if it was shown at one time only. By the next day someone will post it on YouTube anyway. Wow it's almost here guys! :D

Wonder what they'd call it...Maybe something as simple as "The Great Wall of R*", "R*" instead of "Rockstar"....hmmmm.

Maybe you should set your PC clock, the same thing happened to me after setting my clock 2080,March 29 :), I think it appears if your clock is after the trailer will released (like 30 March,1 April)....

I couldn't agree more, 5 minutes would give far too much information away, Rockstar will want to keep it simple and steady.

I think it will be between 2 and 3 min and it probably will NOT be in-game vid, maybe 2nd trailer will. I think the things we will know after watching it are - where it is set, main char, storyline. IMO we wont see the real GTA4 GFX in it.

See you after 46 min when the world will be different.

I spoke too soon, it's broken now. With the amount of members that'll potentially join and log in for this moment, the amount of members online total for one day won't be broken ever... or at least until the release of GTA IV.
