It is coming out on PC. Just a few months later.

If I was working, I would buy a PS3 only for this game!!

guys just read the review on ign.com

they gave it a 10/10.http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/images...s/Clapping.gif
this is the first time in almost a decade ign gave 10/10 for console game.

they said that PS3 version has some edge over xbox 360. like PS3 has 0.5% better graphics .

cannot wait for tuesday

@ jesal i m not sure how long will the PC version take it may be 6 - 8 months or as many people say when sales of PS3 and Xbox versions slow down they may release it then to boost their sales.

abt the torrents i m not sure abt whether u can play on PC

and i dont think you can mod the game on the PS3

Default GTA4-Brief Review

Guys, finally was able to lay my hands on the GTA4 last weekend. I got it from a wholesaler who parted with it as if he was parting with gold ( It was the only copy available and it seems it gets exhausted the minute it comes into the store).

Finally i got it for Rs.2448 ( 48 bucks for CC transaction at 2%)

And, i got home and popped into into the PS3 and oh boy! ever since them i am totally hooked to it ( moreso as i never played the previous versions). I am going along as the story unfolds, i have covered this much being Niko in the game :

a) Dated Michelle ( Friend of Mallorie who is dating Roman) and took her to the bowling alley and i won the bowling too
b) Rescue Roman from the loan sharkers and unable to catch hold of Dardan ( the loan sharker) even after pursing him hotly in the car.

+Points
a) NYC like city beautifully captured with those slopes up and down as in the real city
b) Amazing game play and it is addictive to see things unfold on its own and enter new missions which sometimes maybe as simple as drop someone or pick up something etc
c) Variety of actions that the lead character can get into and solely depends on you as a player choosing them
d) Fantastic graphics and is almost like controlling the " Movie characters and objects within it"

- Points
I dont see any from the few hours that i played. Maybe someone who has played extensively can outline that

I totally feel it is money well spent
