I read that through rockstar social club, they will be awarding the first person to completely finish GTA4.

 

Now... how is that gonna work. Because people who pre ordered online could possibly get the game a day early, amd get a head start right?? Could that be reason enough for rockstar to not allow dealers to ship until the 29th??

 

ALSO, who here is actually gonna try to do this amazing task?? I know I'll probably try going in. But then i'll get all distracted and free roam that sh*t for like four hours biggrin.gif

Who cares about finishing the game first? Since when has GTA been about winning?

Well if you read the original post carefully you'd see he was referring to the Social Club's rewarding of the person who finished it first. So I'd say he obviously cares about finishing the game first.

Stat tracking starts on the 29th. So people who get it a day early will be excluded won't they?

either that, or does it just recognize where they are and they could technically jump in on april 29th starting at like 73% complete..

If they have the game nearly finished on April 28 and then the stats go live on the 29th and they complete the game an hour after stats go live they win. The Xbox stores your stats and when the site goes live it will simply upload the stats you obtained early.

Wouldn't that be a waste of R*'s time though? They spent all this time making the Social Club, just to basicaly say, "Congratulations, you illegally downloaded the game before the official release date and therefore completed it before the people who decided to wait and buy it legitimately, have a prize!"

Yes, it has been a waste of their time now that the game was stolen. You are correct. The Social Club has been compromised by theives and cheaters.

Guess you could go around this and require an additional registration for the 100% Club. And you would not be able to do that if your game has progressed anything more than say 1%. Registration for that could begin like 00:01 AM on the 29th.

 

Just a thought. Im sure R* has taken into account everything.

If someone completes the game on the 28th, and does it in say... 30 hours, R* could just take those 30 hours and start them from a certain time on the 29th. Probably about 9am or something since that's when stores open. That'd mean that person finished the game at 3pm on the 30th.

 

It's obvious they would have thought it through, every game gets leaked and every game has early players.

Well you can be sure R* and M$ will perma-ban any account that has played the game early without permission. The Xbox records the date in which the game is played even when it is offline. When the thieves actually plug the Xbox into the internet and the info is uploaded to the Social Club R* will see the date that the game was played and could then ban. I hope that it works out that way.

And after so many people stole it and uploaded videos to show gameplay, you wonder why? They went to great lengths to hide gameplay and then these little retards start spoiling it for everyone. I seriously wonder why Rockstar even went through all the hard work to make this great game. They make the best game and how do the "fans" reward them? Steal it, upload videos. Just think, they could have made crap and we all still would have bought it for the name. So obviously it isn't ALL about money to them.

i'm not an expert, but i'm sure rockstar will know about the early birds and take steps to ensure they don't have an unair advantage. it's often the case with online games that they change stuff on the fly and perhaps those who started playing early will simply be excluded from that challenge? it shouldn't be hard for them to do that.

A lot of games get leaked/stolen and I have learned to accept that. The problem is that it's all tied in with a competition (Social Club) to finish the game first and the thieves are gaining an unfair advantage. Even if they reset the stats somehow the thieves still get an edge because they have had a practice run. They are cheaters.

R* are one of those developers that you KNOW it isn't all about the money. they have potentially the biggest cash-cow in entertainment history but they clearly take a very artistic, ego-free approach to the whole process - they haven't blatantly milked it. they make the games first for themselves, then for the fans, then for the money.. now that their already disgracefully rich, anyway, probably.

I think that it's completely idiotic if you try to finish the game before anyone else. That achievement doesn't mean anything. It just says that some guy rushed throught the entire game without concern for the plot, or anything else. No one's gonna think they're cool, no one's gonna think that they're the best gamer in the world, Most of us will just think how idiotic they are for rushing around like that. It's really stupid to rush it all like that your first time through.

Even if they track it by time, not date, the thieves still gain an unfair advantage by having the game a week early to practice. All they would have to do it start a new game and breeze through it because they know all the missions and locations. They are cheaters.

But they're practicing on their first playthrough. If anything they're going slower cause they're all too busy making videos to play properly.

Unless you guys are going to sit at home and play GTA for 100 hrs strait don't worry about it because there are plenty of people who will. And for those who will? Get a life...
