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.

DSP TRIIIIIES IT!!!

 

But for real already completed everything in the PS3 version. Not interested even if it lands on the PS4 unless there's some slight changes from gameplay. There's a 5% chance I'll even bother with it.

Wasn't this image supposedly uploaded by a Rockstar dev ?

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).

I'm pretty sure it was part of an article about a dev that was in charge of early development of V's terrain. Due to V not actuall existing at that point he tried out the new render techniques in IV's map.

Wow that's pretty awesome I have to admit even though it's my least fav GTA game. Lets hope PS4 won't be left out for too long.

BLASPHEMY!

Meanwhile on PS4

Watched the stream by GTASeriesVideos and it looks almost the same as the PC version, but (I assume) it can be played in 1080p/60fps cause Xbone > x360.

And Backwards compatibility is a good thing if you want to re-experience old titles and not just let them die whenever a "new gen" emerges.

On PS4. Can confirm. REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

This actually looks pretty decent on XB1 even for a 9 year old game.

 

Ahh the nostalgia...  I remembered why I've completed GTA IV like 50 times on the 360.

I'm assumign that when you're in multiplayer, you can be playing with people on 360?

 

Because I had some guy just appear in my car, start making my car veer off course, etc. Xbox One's not cracked, as far as I know.

 

That's the only real drawback. Wish there was some way around it - it's good fun in helicopters that aren't made of paper.

Yeah, it's cross-platform.

I'm glad that they made it available on the Xbox One since my old PS3 doesn't work well right now (YLOD). GTA IV was the main reason why i have bought a PS3 in the first place. Unfortunately, $20 for a 2008 game is a bit too expensive for me (Based on the Xbox Store).

I'm happy like a child that's unwrapping his Christmas presents. Also, recently I'm been able to buy a brand new copy of EFLC that for various unfortunate reasons I never played then, so I can't wait to finish for the umpteenth time GTA IV! I missed a lot Liberty City...

Spoiler
Call it whatever you want...

Most people care about two things:

A) Can they play it on their Xbox one?

B) Do they have to pay for it again?

The technical terms & the process doesn't matter to them.

The answers are:

A) Yes.

B) No, you own it (Disc or Digital download), you won't pay for the port or whatever.

The rest is history.

 

Could people put almost entire X360 library into XOne and just play from disc starting Nov 2013 without approvals from M$ or publishers? Can we play lesser known but still great games like MCLA on XOne? That's not true BC, rather "Xbox 360" Classics program.

I was the one who found it! :p It was on a developer's portfolio, just there, along with other V pictures.

For once, Xbox One players can experience something similar to what PC players get!

Back to the airport I go. And this time with modders from last gen to spice things up. Happy f*cking days :)

 

Airport chaos was so fun back then. Especially with modders.

Can anyone say whether or not this version is still locked at 30fps? I've seen some people saying otherwise, but IV still seems to be on my end (still haven't tried TLAD/TBoGT).

Well in that case I either just made up that story from my fragmented memory or that was the best explanation that made sense in my mind that someone posted in your original topic.

GTA IV never had locked framerate. It was always unlocked (at least on 360, I don't remember if it's the same on PS3) and varied from 15 to 45 fps.

The first time I tried to sign in it did that to me. I just kept trying and eventually it gave in and let me on - think it's probably just xbox being a bit laggy or something.

How's the fps like? It's going to be worse than the 360 obviously, but by how much?

Well this is strange - I've just had it telling me I need a 450mb update (I already installed it the other day).

 

I wonder if it's just on Xbox One, or the game itself being patched?

 

Fingers crossed it kicks off the cheaters.

Here is why I prefer GTA 4 multiplayer to 5. Utter chaos and no money needed for weapons.

Edit: Damn tablet.

Also none-slidey-magnet actually fun melee.

Sweeet so you can play all 3 episodes online on the X1? How does this work exactly. Can x1 players only play with other X1 players or can you also online multiplay with x360 users?

How is that obvious? The majority of games that are backwards compatible on Xbox One have better performance than they did on Xbox 360.

For IV, the overall FPS is better than the Xbox 360, but frame pacing is a little more chaotic, which makes feel more stuttery/delayed.

EDIT: Apparently an update rolled out for IV on Xbox One, the lights you see on bridges at night wasn't working, should be fixed now.

With all of the backwards compatibility and better mod support for FO4 and Skyrim SE, I may just end up buying myself a XBONE instead of a PS4. This is great news!

Although GTA IV isn't my favorite, it's really nice that they are supporting it on the current gen platforms. It doesn't really need a re-master. They should remove the blur effects though a patch though.

Liberty City, I'm glad they made it backwards compatible, fun game back when it came out, my brother preferred The Ballad of Gay Tony where i'd rather play The Lost and the Damned (even though its the most depressing game I ever played) still good, weirdly multiplayer was a lot more fun, with GTA Online you can do everything and you just don't know what to do with yourself, weird huh?.
