Anyone else looking to buy GTA IV for the PC? It’s now on [red=playgta]preorder at Play.com[/red] for Â£25 which seems alright.
I bought the first one (ie GTA III) and enjoyed driving around and stuff, and the new one looks amazing.
This goes in off topic because we won’t be running this on an NC10!!
Not suitable for kids 😉

Anyone played it on the consoles – how did it compare? Im hoping the gap between the one I bought and now will be fairly significant so it will be like a whole new game and not just an extension?November 30, 2008 at 1:16 pm #172621Richard TMember
I’v played this on PS3 and the map was quiet cool,i think san andreas was the best so far and this didn’t quiet match up to it in my opinion…A good game though all the sameNovember 30, 2008 at 8:03 pm #172619ploppoMember
I’ll be buying it for the PC.November 30, 2008 at 8:17 pm #172622
I played it on my friends 360 and I thought it lagged quite a bit PC version should look a lot better. I’ve been looking forward to its release on PC for a while. I have enjoyed every GTA on PC since GTA 1 over 10 years ago. I have seen that the minimum spec is a dual core CPU though. Recommended specs look hefty (to me):
Recommended System Requirements
Windows Vista – Service Pack 1 / XP – Service Pack 3
2.4Ghz Intel Core 2 Quad or 2.1GHz AMD Phenom X3
2.5 GB of RAM (Windows XP) or 2.5 GB of RAM (Windows Vista)
18 GB Free Hard Drive Space
512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870
DRM is ok, unlimited installations with the disc apparantly.November 30, 2008 at 8:37 pm #172614
I think I’ll be OK on the recommended spec. But even the recommended is often some way off whats really needed. We’ll see I guess! Look forward to the first reviews.November 30, 2008 at 8:56 pm #172620WilliamYZFMember
I had never bought a GTA game but bought IV for the 360. Never got into it.
I am a COD guy, finished 2,3,4 and WAW.December 1, 2008 at 10:50 am #172618hefMember
i will deffo be buying this. it’s awesome on the xbox so it can only be better on the pc.December 12, 2008 at 9:39 am #172623
So anybody got it then? I’ve read it runs like a pile of stink? That will be a let down if soDecember 12, 2008 at 10:59 am #172615
I’ve been put off by the bad reviews. Users are claiming that it is a little buggy and doesn’t run all that well and has inhibitive copy protection.
Shame, I was looking forward to it.December 12, 2008 at 1:03 pm #172624
Yep i’m afraid this might be a nail in the coffin for PC gaming…..December 12, 2008 at 1:52 pm #172617lozza69erMember
Got GTA IV for my PS3 on release date and i am still playing it to this day. Online is such a laugh.December 12, 2008 at 2:45 pm #172616
Yeah I forgot about online. What do you have to do? Just shoot each other?!
