Has GTA IV influenced you to commit crimes?

Nope, it's just a game.
Only petty crimes.
Stealing has become a hobby.
Yes, can't say more, cops are coming.
I am the living incarnation of Niko.

IV PC shown off at Leipzig, 10 screenshots emerge!

Posted by jelly at 17:22. Category: General

The first details and screenshots of the PC version of GTA IV have emerged online today. Features revealed include a replay editor, better search options for matches online, the ability to play with a controller instead of keyboard and mouse (for all the masochists out there) and of course polished visuals worthy of the platform. Oh, and also fingerless gloves.

  • The number of multiplayer slots may be expanded for the PC version (16 is the limit for the console versions).
  • The maximum resolution is 2560x1600.
  • Players can record 30 second clips and then they can add filters and adjust the camera angle using the replay editor. They can also paste clips together and then upload them to R* Social Club for others to view online.
  • Players can search for multiplayer games more specifically (e.g. a deathmatch with pistols only).
  • The Xbox 360 controller is compatible with the PC version.

According to videogaming247 the PC version of GTA IV is to be shown at Games Convention in Leipzig. Given the location and PC focus of the event it's hardly surprising, but this is the first time it's been confirmed by any source.

VG247 has learnt from a source close to Rockstar that the PC version of GTA IV will be shown behind closed doors at Games Convention next week.

No clue on specifically what’s to be shown, but expect the first pieces to pop up after the show.

GC’s looking quite hot this year, innit?
