Kikizo, GameSpot, IGN, GamesRadar, CVG, and 1UP will all pay a visit to Rockstar Games this week to preview the latest build of GTA IV. We will post more details as soon as they become available to us.


This week? Nice! The Kikizo previews are always a good read.

Adriaan is a staff member over at PlanetGTA. I'm the site director there. He does a great job. I would venture to say that next Tuesday might be too early of a guess.

Too early? I was at your site today and someone on your staff said something about the previews possibly hitting on tuesday the 22nd...exactly three months before the possible april 22nd release date?

Are these new previews still going to come before the end of the month?

It'd be better if they kept the content in the realm of the privileged till closer to the release date. Like they've been saying the people who read there sites, and post on there forums are idiots. Lets just hope the pecking order doesn't halt or a lot of heads with be going up asses.

"Big Surprise"

7. EA buys Rockstar, "Grand Theft Madden IV" release date revealed soon
6. The special edition now comes with a real Glock
5. Something to do with kick-ass online multiplayer
4. The demo that journalists saw will be shown on G4 TV alongside a woman with large and curiously shaped breasts
3. The 4th GTA IV trailer is here
2. GTA IV demo on XBL Marketplace right now!
1. GTA IV to be released Feb 1st in the first-ever surprise early release date.


I can't think of any other 'big' surprises that would thrill me?

Thrilled about EA purchasing Rockstar? Only in the Twilight Zone, or in Alice's Wonderland. That announcement would make me cry, not excited. Out of all of the things you mention, I'm going to have to go with an early release date. I think that would make me the happiest. Correction, I know it would.

All joking aside, I wonder if that was indeed a true statement? I never saw confirmation of that forum post, so it makes me curious. Call me impatient, but I wish a few of these previews were surfacing this week, not next. The information well has ran dry, and I'm ready for a drink.

Well according to an earlier post by Jordan, even next Tuesday might be too early of a guess as to when these new previews will surface...I guess we will have to wait on these as well.

Is a release date really a 'big surprise' though?
Especially if it ends up being mid-March. I think we'd all be like, yeah, so what, we figured.

Unless the release date is just around the corner I wouldn't call that a 'big surprise' -- and I wouldn't use that terminology if I was going to drop the bomb that the release date was months and months away either. ("Hey kids, Daddy has a big surprise for you! You're getting a pony...... next Christmas!")

Them's some powerful words.

No need to get even more impatient now we have something to look forward to. Two days ago we had no idea if we would get an update this month but fortunately we have new information coming next week. So its really not far off.

Who knows but on "Jordans" site he did say the previews will be released next week. So im thinking next Thursday 24th since Rockstar always have a habit of releasing Trailers and Screens to the public on "Thursday" for some strange reason.

Depends on how you look at it. If it were announced as an early February release, then, yes, I'd say that was a surprise. Why? Because most of us expect it to be late March, even late April, and that's if there isn't suddenly another delay. That's not to say there will be another delay, but more of a what if.

By "just around the corner" I did mean February.
Agreed, that would be a big surprise.

It's an italian forum.


The rumor came from the "official" account of one of the journalist of OXM.

{link removed because of Non disclousure agreement}


In this thread we were wondering why GTAIV figured on 10Th position in the Most Played chart in the last issue of OXM.

The journalist replied that one of them before christmas was sent to R* press tour were
he saw GTAIV played by a developer. It's the press tour used to make the next preview that wil be release soon.

then he said that(quoting&translating):


"from a chat between Tommy vercetti and *** ***(the italian journalist) it seems that something it's going to happen"

He talked hilariusly 'cause it's his style but the post was serious


I know ti's not a big rumor but it's better nothing. I think he was talking about the release date

He haven't seen the demo, another journalist was sent another journalist.

He wasclearly talking about a news.

Oh right. I dunno if things get lost in translation etc, but it sounds a little more vague each time...Sounds like the journalist is presuming some big announcement because of the press event. Ah balls, I dunno

Did he hint at whether it was good news, or bad news?

Also, this has been bothering me...how come none of the websites that got this preview, like IGN, haven't mentioned anything about it. You would think at least one of these places would have confirmed this. I even checked some of the xbox 360 IGN editors blogs and usually when they go to studios for a preview, they will at least mention it is their blog. I remember they said they were taking a trip to go see Too Human, a 360 exclusive, but they couldn't post the actual preview until a couple weeks later...how come this situation is any different?

No

At the press event R* told something to the journalists, something that is a news.

The jourlaist that was at event told this at the journalist tha has made the post.

I think it's the release date that will be announced soon.



@nintendo fanboy

We all know that Journalist were invited to see the fame fora preview. It's a officiale news in the main page of this site.


There is nothing strange.. because the journalist told us that there is something in the air [cit.] not what.

At least 90% it's the release date.

GTAIV will come soon i think between febr and march

If this is the case though, Im suprised nothing has been leaked early. Even if websites just post clues for the extra hits
