UPDATE!

Rockstar have just announced that GTA IV is indeed heading to Xbox One with backwards compatibility, and it's already available! The Complete Edition, which includes the base game and the Episodes, is available to digitally download from the Xbox Store, or you can simply insert your old Xbox 360 disc to play. Even your original game saves can be transferred through the clouds, rejoice!
 
Rockstar are celebrating with a special competition for a Social Club member to win a bunch of very awesome GTA IV swag. Oh my I am jelly. You can enter the competition here.

<---Original speculation post--->

 

It's come to light this afternoon that GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City has been freshly rated by the ESRB (the guys who rate games in the USA) for Xbox One, paving way for speculation that the game is due for re-release or backwards compatibility on the platform.
 
Given the praise from fans for both Red Dead Redemption and Bully also recently becoming backwards compatible on the Xbox One, could it now be GTA IV's turn as we edge closer and closer to it's 9th birthday in April?
 
Interestingly, GTA IV on it's own doesn't actually appear for the platform, just EfLC, but I guess it's obvious you can't have one without the other and that may still be processing as we speak. It's also not currently updated on the PEGI website, the guys who rate games in Europe.
 
Unfortunately it's not appearing for PS4 right now, and since Red Dead Redemption recently got an outing but only via the Playstation Now streaming subscription service, PS4 fans may be left a little disappointed *if* this revelation means an announcement from Microsoft is imminent. 
 
Either way, the thought of going back to the orange tinged city of broken dreams is exciting!

GTA IV for CG consoles would be totally awesome! It doesn't even need to be "remastered". It just needs 1080p support and that stupid blur effect removed. 

But it seems that they release it for PS Now only.. that's kinda disappointing since it's not available in most countries.

A remaster would be 10 times better though.

Sadly im on ps4 , and i refuse to pay Sony what they want to "rent" a game from them, as much as id love to play red dead on my ps4, just not going to rent it . I want the game on a disc so i can play when i want, for one friggin price. Man sometimes i do hate Sony.

Yeah it's not even available in most countries, because they know it will cost too much. Why can't they just integrate a proper emulation for PS3 games. oh, right.. that's too expensive as well.

I'm in the same boat, it would be a complete waste of money for me to buy into Playstation Now, the prices seem a bit excessive if you can't play games every day if you work etc, so I don't think I'll be bothering with it when my PS3 is still hooked up to my television anyway. I'd love to have played GTA IV and RDR1 on my PS4 though :(

Thankfully us PC guys get it always.

Both of these. I hope my PS4 sisters and brothers aren't left out for too long. All of the older GTAs should be readily available for both consoles, and at a reasonable price too (reasonable being, well, preferably free).

 

Just to clarify though, is it there right now? So if I put my EFLC disc in, it'd do it now? Or is it just coming up?

 

I'm going to have to get in an explosive rounds Annihilator again. Hopefully there aren't too many modders around.

It's ready to go and download/install right now AFAIK! 

 

You can put your Xbox 360 disc in and play, or if you had it digitally you can download it from your library, or if you didn't have it at all you can buy it digitally from the Xbox Store.

Yeah thats my thing, and have thought it since they introduced PS Now. The price is just way to high, unless you have no life and can just play games all day every day, but then how do you afford PSNow? I dont have enough time in a day to play as much as id like, Their "renting" service just sucks. Man how i miss real GTA Races from GTA IV . They were my fav and the just ruined GTA Races on V imo.

Yeah, I'm already paying for the online aspect of Online, not paying for another service. They are able to upload PS2 game files to the store and sell for an individual price, but not PS3 games without PSNow... sounds fishy lol

But congrats to Xbone owners. Might be joining ya here shortly lol

There is no confirmation that the picture was for an LC remaster (or otherwise I guess) other than wild speculation. This has nothing to do with it, as Rockstar has been making some of their games backwards compatible.

To bad that stupid xbox enforcement team permanently suspended my account. I'm on ps4 now so i have to say where's the love for us sony guys? I would really hope that whenever gta 6 comes out we'll get like a remastered version of 4 pretty much how call of duty infinite warfare got a remastered modern warfare bundle.

Glad to see that they still acknowledge the existence of this game.

It was but that doesn't conclude it was for an IV remaster. Could've been it, but could've also been V map DLC, as it has V assets (trees).

GTA V on PC wasn't a remaster, it was the original version, but later it was nerfed for X360/PS3 hardware. Or at least they were developed together.

Bully on the other hand was just a f*cking nightmare, unoptimized, bugged, lagging nightmare. The engine transition was rushed, so R* had to use lots and lots of duct-tape to make it work. Even besides the engine it always felt like a PS2 version wrapped in an emulator, just like Manhunt 2, by the way.

 

Let's not derail the thread, shall we?

Sony!....why...why did you make PS Now, this stupid service decreases the chance of getting PS3 games on PS4 :(
And yeah, I rather pay once instead of every month, because I want to get the feeling of owning a game, renting a game feels weird to me and I also don't have much free time.

Funny that this just got released. I've been considering playing this again recently after watching DSP fail at it. It's been awhile since I've last played it, which I think was back in 2015.
