Can we make a fuss about how Rockstar is FORCING this change on us? We purchased our copies under the original licence and just like SA on PC they're going back and removing it for ALL users. And considering the hit to GTA IV is going to be worse then we're all losing out, not just people who buy new copies.

Yeah this is f*cked up. Typically with something like this, or even in cases when a game is no longer being sold online because of something with the publishers - people who bought the game before the change are fine. New copies purchased after are the only ones changed. There's no reason to force a patch for original buyers that removes stuff.

 

What's TakeTwo going to do about people with disc copies? Send some more private detectives to their homes and force them to trade discs?

I guess I'm glad that I no longer have Xbox Live and my 360 is no longer internet-connected. Vladivostok FM and all other music will remain the same for me.

 

But whenever they even bothered with sending private investigators, what exactly can those guys even do besides scare you? I know they showed up to the door of the guy with the devkit build of V, but seriously, can't you just tell them to f*ck off or you'll call the cops and then shut the door in their faces? I thought I read that Rockstar/Take-Two couldn't even sue them.

Honestly, I just think they don't because that would mean hiring millions of PIs to send them busting open everyone's door, and that would not only take away maybe 1% of their $6 billion, but that would be a PR disaster waiting to happen.

Of course they're not going to hunt down everyone who still has the legacy copy of GTA IV and EFLC. This isn't even legal, you just can't go back to the customer and say "Hey, look, you bought this game 10 years ago, but now it containts content that we don't own anymore, so please give us the disk or we'll ruin your life" .. well at least not in europe. You bought the game, you own it.. well not the game brand itself but you get the idea.

 

So turn up the volume and let everyone know that you're still enjoying the game with the original music of GTA IV :D

Again, nobody ever cut song from a movie, so why cut it from a game ?

Anyway, this situation is just a sign of R* lazyness and avarice.

People will save songs in any case, but situation is ugly.

Songs have been cut in a couple movies and tv shows when they rerelease them but they at least make an effort to try to pay to renew it. Edited by Zello

I'm still confused on this. As someone who owns the hard discs version of "The Complete Version" on my 360, is Rockstar going to send a patch out for a game that's 10 years old on my 360?

So there's something a little weird I want to point out to is that while checking steamdb, I found that gta iv is in VMC BigFoot Test Comp, what do you think this means? Also there's an Unknown Depot 12212 that's in Rockstar camp, Rockstar dev camp and VMC BigFoot Test Comp. Though unknown when it was last updated when I click on the only apps/packages that it has are GTA IVs.

VMC is a QA outsource company and BigFoot is the codename for Big Picture. Valve was using VMC to asses Big Picture and controller compatibility with a portion of popular games on Steam.

Why Rockstar not release a version for Nintendo Switch? It would be great if you can play GTA4 on Switch whenever you are outside or at home.

You must have leaving Nintendo Switch out of ten year anniversary versions of GTA IV.

Indeed. There is a possibility they did outsource the IV patches to this company, because I don't see any other reason for this package to exist.

this probable outsourcing is already known from pre 1.8 patch era. nothing new, if they would outsource it, i would believe they would have get rid of GFLW with 1.8 patch

The package is definitely a Valve created and maintained package - just look at the large amount of games all from different developers and publishers.

They do QA though, it's still a possibility. Titles with the Bigfoot comp on it were apparently associated with Steam Machines/Linux, and I think only IV (maybe MP3?) from Rockstar is on that comp package.

Right MP3 is on the list, maybe R* is planning on releasing GTA IV on linux(remastred or not) or something. I mean it's really weird, what is IV doing there?

It's been there for a long time and nothing came of it. Maybe another R* abandoned project.

They are selling used copies of VIce City with all the original songs and haitian stuff still in there and nobody does a thing so I doubt they will send people to your home. People who already paid for the game while the license was still intact should be grandfathered in.

As much I as I love the story and gameplay of L.A. Noire. It doesn't deserve a remaster or an optimized version to it. It doesn't have too much replayablity. Ive 100% it & its achievements so Ive played the sh*t out of it. I haven't touched it since 2012. lol.

 

IV deserves it so much, its just from the 3rd era, to the HD was amazing. We are all amazed.

It feels awesome to experience IV and it's episodes once again, mostly because playing for the good 'ol memories. Plus much more used the vehicle physics & handling in these games from personal experience, especially with motorcycles in TLaD.

 

Feels like the anniversary should've been appreciated more but unfortunately. R* & Take-Two doesn't really give a sh*t about it, other then removing and replacing music.

It's hard to see the best GTA so abandoned by R*.

 

Seriously, I still can enjoy it, V it's so boring and empty, and downgraded, of course.

 

Since Leslie Ben(damn, i can't write it together)zies left R*, their only focus is GTAO

Fully agree. GTA5, except some fine features, is downgraded. It doesn't give me so much fun as GTA4 did.

 

I'm a PS4 player, so I would like to play on this console instead of buying used PS3 just to play a one game (or maybe two, RDR) and what's more - in The lower resolution and textures.

They even abandoned GTA V for Online. If Leslie wasn't fired I'm confident GTA V would be more well received due to getting Single Player DLC and MAYBE just MAYBE GTA 4 would get remastered.

And maybe we would have already received a teaser trailer for GTA VI... I'm 90% sure that Benz was against this whole system of microtransactions, but he had to accept it. T2 (and probably someone at Rockstar) wanted to make easy money with the least effort possible, maybe Benz was an obstacle for their planes and so they fired him... Basically a good way to thank the person who made of Rockstar the big company that it's now, surely GTA III changed a lot the viedogame industry back in 2001.
