Some new info came from ign they interpreted the live demo at e3.

-Said it was 3 minuets of actual gameplay running on the 360.

-Traffic and pedestrians were turned off for the demo.

-The in game menu listed "map, game, brief, stats, controls, audio and display."

-Niko drives a black Lincoln Continental knock off with the camera 15 feet behind the car.

-50's jazz music was playing in the car

-Lighting and water effects are looked great.

-The size looks on par with san andres but with much more detail.

-Last when demo was paused the map was shown for a few split seconds and from the looks of it, its like 2 huge islands connected in the middle.

-Frame rate and pops ups still need work

"Two huge islands connected in the middle"? Could someone explain it better to me?

 

Ugh.. it should really have 3 islands = NJ + Manhattan/the Bronx + Long Island?

It sounds like the game is no where near done. Anyway, the whole demo seemed a bit mundane, no AI, other cars, REAL gameplay. Also, there is no way the map is only two islands and if it is I would be highly dissapointed just playing on a big blob of a land mass.

Nah, now that I thought of it again, in SA when you look at the map, it's zoomed in, so this one's definitely not a full-view of the map.

i should be the one to post this..but meh nevermind...like i will get something.About the 2 island thingy they only saw a PART of the map,not the full map.

Abiout the ingame menu it seems it didnt change much from the previous games meaning Mobile phone wont act as a start menu thingy but will act as an important gameplayfeature. and it cant be accesed via start menu but maybe pressing some other button.dissapointed about the frame rate but its still early stage of the game ...i hope..But i think we should forget GTA Iv at E3,brcause a cutted demo of 3-5 mins is nothing compared to what they shown to magazines.15 minutes of GTA Iv blowjobs and we shoudl all STICK with magaZines for Now.thats my suggestion on all this.

i also saw something you didnt notice topic starter::

 

 

A little Sony-Ericsson knock-off pops up on .....

 

SonyE?is it real brand or Rockstar created a fictional mobile phone that looks the same as SE models???

 

 

 

the similarly familiar numerical score listing in the top right of the screen and that's it.

 

this is the place where health,armor and money are supposd to aappear.Numerical?do they mean the return of Numerical health&armor stat? or just a money indicator??/

 

 

other then that sorry for the double post(if it is seeing how topic move fast)and IGN sh*tts a lot about GTA Iv honestly.None mag or anybody said bad things about it but they are pretty much all Rainy and kinda..i dont know...you can feel a bad atmosphere while reading the article....f*ck them i say!!!!

 

GTA IV wil be the KING!!!!

 

edit: how GTA Iv mobile could look

 

user posted image

 

Camera is there

messages is there

phonebook/contacts is there

settings will probably stay(ring sound maybe?? alarm sound maybe??)

organizer/calendar is there

conectivity ..well we have internet so .....

calls ...you can see numbers of people you called.this will probably be there

pictures&sounds probablyh turned into pictures where you can view your saved pics from camera biggrin.gif

entertainment ,my shortcuts ,internet services and Sonyerricsson well i dont se how could they be there but you never know.Maybe there will be some minigames in entertainment or you can start co-op or online mode from here and the top 3 could be even removed so it has only 9 icons

I just posted it:

 

http://planetgrandtheftauto.gamespy.com/fu...y.php?id=124175

 

As previously stated below in the news, a one-time five-minute demonstration of GTA IV was shown to a group of people in a secure room this morning at the E3 event in California. No recordings were allowed, and it will never see the light of day. However, I have been in contact with someone that saw it, and while they wrote their own brief summary, I have been able to ask follow-up questions.

 

IGN's Patrick Kolan is who I spoke with, and I first asked him about the map he saw when the game was paused. He said that he remembers seeing two large islands connected in the middle and that the two large islands were divided vertically, meaning that it resembles the Vice City map.

 

Second, Devin Winterbottom was one of the developers showing the demo, but Kolan was unable to catch who the second person was. Winterbottom is on the production team.

 

Lastly, at least one source mentioned seeing planes in the skies during the demo. Kolan told me that "there was a plane over the water at one point." He's a busy man at E3, and that was all he had time for. At least we got a few more tidbits out of the day. Stay tuned for possibly even more.

Oh God please not that Sony Ericsson "phone". Its a kid's toy. Sorry, but I've owned a T610, T630 and a K750i all with the little joystick and they just suck. Unanimously.

 

And I'm not dissing Sony - I have a W850i right now and its the NUTS! biggrin.gif

 

Just please Niko, thing straight. Please don't get a phone with a joystick, please.

The more I hear about this game (assuming it is true, and the information represents what we will finally play) the more it sounds like all the previous GTAs. Strange...

I must say that has worried me a bit...

Most traffic and characters were turned off, and the framerate and pop-up were still bad?!

Hopefully it was an early build! confused.gif

There's going to be so much new features in this game we will be amazed at all the new stuff we couldn't think of or other game producers could. Already stuff like surfing the internet, I never would have dwelled that deep into that sort of thing in a game.

 

Still, up untill the game's release, we still have a few months, and in that timne R* will be releasing quite a few things, and the good thing is there will still be 70% of unknown features that they have not talked about. So the more stuff we get the better because it will just mean if that much is only 30% there's still more than 3X of that more to see.

Yea i can't possibly understand why they would choose to show a build that has pop up...? So people can criticize?? I mean this is E3....Rockstar should be well prepared.

i thought they only talked about a bad framerate.. and they only showed it to a small group of people for a reason.
