    Hi all

    With the typical amount of over hype GTA 4 is released today. So I thought I would open this thread for all people getting it, to gauge what people's opinions are :)

    I shall be picking my (pre-ordered) copy at lunch time providing blockbuster recived enough copys. Will report back later when I have taken it home and fired it up in my 360 :)

    I picked up my copy yesterday for my PS3. As I posted on my blog here on OSNN. This game simply put, lives up to all the hype x 100000.

    Rockstar developers are true game writers. to create a game franchise like GTA and produce high quality storyline and game play takes special talent.

    The graphics on the PS3 are great. they Fit the bill. Liberty City is huge!!
    so many things to do, you truly become the character Niko Bellic. This game sucks you in from the very start. IF you are a fan of the GTA series. you will be in gaming heaven. My friend has the 360 version, and told me there is some lag time for loading. but all in all its ok. but he is going out and buying a PS3 because of this game plays better on it.

    PERFECT 10

    ***** OSNN Gaming STARS

    w00t! level maximum level. :) :up::D:smoker:

    ok stop reading and go buy this game!!!!!!

    I am waiting for my shipment. I'm usually the type to buy it in the store but I got it for 42.99 US and I wasn't going to pass on that deal...

    This has been the game I've most eagerly awaited and now that I know it shipped for me I can't wait!!!

    Got mine at midnight. Walmart had a line about 40 people deep... for the 360 version. The PS3 line was 5 deep so I got mine real quick and got home. I was only able to play for about 30 min before I had to get some sleep (stupid work) but I'm already addicted. It's safe to say that I won't be playing a lot of WoW for a while.

    I don't know if you can call this game hyped when the praise is deserved.

    Plays perfect on mine no lag what so ever........
    Actually if the download content is all its meant to be the 360 version is supposed to be the version to get, we will have to see on that.
    Not played both versions personally, but mine plays fine and the graphical "glitches" that are supposed to exist (not spotted any yet) are present on BOTH VERSIONS EQUALLY.

    Not played any in the series before so still trying to get into it (my driving skills defiantly need to improve).

    He was saying that there is load time between some parts of the game. not long but enough to delay for a moment. hmmm that was his comment. I have not played it on 360.


    as far as not playing the others.... you should buy them. grab a PS2 for cheap and have a blast :)

    Yeah its real fun, I have it on the PS3 and I have played a couple of hours. I have already been to a strip club and been invited "upstairs" as part of the story. I have the NZ copy that was censored because of Australia do the 'strippers" in the other uncensored versions wear bikinis as well?

    Played it yesterday for a couple hours. It's safe to say I probably won't be touching Halo 3 for a while :D

    Wait... I thought the release date was in May! :( Oh well... I guess I'll be going out to get a copy.

    Anyone know if there is a PC version of this too?
