I go up to a cab & I press everything. (I've finished the first Michelle date)... but cabs don't seem to let me in, so that I can go to my chosen destinations... I always end up carjacking them.

Has anyone played the PS3 version?.. if yes, what do I do to get a cab ride?

You'll find out in the game. I'm sure they won't leave us in the dark.

Just start whistling, the PS3 version has voice recognition so a cab should come soon after.

If you have the camera attachment for your 360 or sixaxis on PS3 you're actually able to hail one by lifting your arm

On the 360 you hold lb to hail and then hold y to get in.

Don't know what the lb button on the ps 3 is, but y is triangle.

You have to equip a grenade, aim towards the nearest cab, and hold 'fire' for a few seconds.

It's L1 for the PS3, and LB for the 360.

Hold Y down.

Press LB then, walk up to a taxi and hold down the Y button.

I think that works.... turn.gif

You can't call for a cab until you're told how to in the game tbh.

Sounds crazy "Now, Niko, I know this is going to sound crazy, but use your left arm and elevate it into an upright position. This cause a taxi to come and get you"

For all you idiots who are saying "read the instruction manual" - all i can say is stfu because you obviously don't actually have the game.
NOWHERE in the instruction manual does it say HOW to hail a cab, it says you can but doesnt tell you how. An i know because ive completely read through the entire manual and even the map WHICH INCLUDES CONTROLLER LAYOUT!!!!

so please don't act like you're so smart and the person who hasnt read the manual is stupid because your making yourself look dumb. Even if they did, they still wouldnt know how to hail a cab because it simply doesnt tell you. So please, enough of the stupid "read the manual" posts!

Hold L1 until Niko whistles. Then go up to the cab and hold triangle (a tap will make Niko steal the car) until Niko gets in the passenger seat.

Right after Vlad gives you his first mission, you get a message on screen that tells you how to hail a cab to get to different places. First and foremost, there has to be a cab around rolleyes.gif . Then you have to be close enough and PRESS the LB\L1 button and Niko will whistle. When the cab stops for you, you have to HOLD DOWN the Y\Triangle button until Niko runs toward the REAR door of the car.

NOTE: PRESS means hit the button and release to get desired result. HOLD DOWN means DO NOT LET GO UNTIL YOU GET DESIRED RESULT.

I don't think I can explain it any clearer. mercie_blink.gif
