This great game from Rockstar was launched in end of April. I had read through the preview and found that the graphic is really overwhelming. But unfortunately, it can only be played using PS3 or XBOX 360. I only have PS2 in my house, so I need to buy a PS3 before I can play this game And the price for a PS3 or XBOX 360 is still expensive. Besides, my PS2 is still function well. So, have you played this game yet? If you have played, kindly share your exciting experience about it

You are very lucky person, to be able to play GTA 4 earlier than many others. I am envious . I am still struggling to decide wether I should go for a PS3 or a XBOX 360. Both of them are in the same price range over here. But, I still think that they are expensive. What I might do now is buying the GTA 4 game disc first. When the play station price plunge lower, then only I will consider purchasing either one of them. Before I buy it, I still have the options to choose Thanks for your response Saulovp!

Well, I think I am going to do the same thing too. Play it at friend's house. LoL. But most of them, I need privacy too while playing the game. Besides, we won't use up the save game slot in friend's PS3. Because, sometimes, many game slots are needed to do some trial and error stuff. And by saving the games at critical or confusing stage will save us a lot of times to re-do all the actions repeatedly. Thanks a lot for your response!

GTA3 have been the best game ever for me. San Andreas is the best among GTA3 LoL. I haven't got chance to play GTA4 yet. But I bet it's better better GTA3. I have read reviews and feedback from other mylotter. It makes me envy you guys and long for playing the games more. Thanks for your response IneedMONEY99!

Nope, I think PC version is not released yet. Usually it will be later than the game console version. I am not sure why, but the trend so far is like this. Later I will take a look in the internet to confirm if it have been released. Thanks for your response!

Well, let's start saving some money from now on. By having some $50 each month, we should be able to buy it within a year, depending on the price drop rate. Thanks for your response fizanali!

I got this game for the xbox360 the first day it came out. I got the limited edition with all the goodies. I do love this game even though I still think people are making to much of it by giving it a perfect 10. Its a 9 or 9.5 at best but not perfect. But I love the characters and storylines deffintley think its the best in the series but the music sucks only good music is the rock music. Im only at 38% im in no rush to beat this game I only do a few missions per day lol. Even though there pretty easy.

Well apparently you are a XBOX360 player. I have tried some game with my friend's XBOX360. It's a great gaming console. I like the wireless controller too. The graphics is better than PS2. But since I haven't witness the performance of PS3, so I couldn't compare it with PS2 or XBOX360. San Andreas got 9.6 rating online if I am not wrong. So, I suppose GTA4 can do even better. Well, personally I like those rock music, as long as they are not those techno songs. (I hate techno in fact). Thanks for your response arcidy!

Seems like the graphic is shockingly great. Not sure about the storyline and game play. But I value the storyline and game play more than the graphics. That's why I still like some old games even though they are not graphic intensive. So envy about your PS3, I hope to get one soon enough. And, I do not what to do with my PS2. Thanks for your response!

I have seen kids of my friends indulging in playing games using PS3 but I haven’t tried it at all. Frankly speaking, is it suitable for older people to play games using PS3 or XBOX 360? I think I would better try to play such games while visiting my son as I know he has such console. I am not sure whether his is ps3 or xbox360. I’m gonna find out later.

That's cool. Because PS3 is the latest game console from Sony. And I think it's still expensive. I am still waiting for the price drop. XBOX 360 is another option for GTA 4 too. I have a PS2, but it can not support GTA 4. (too bad) It's because the GTA4 is very graphic intensive and it's applying new rendering technology. The web site resource claim that it's using graphic processing engine to produce the game character. No wonder the graphic is so beautiful. I don't see why elderly couldn't play the PS game. There are many games which are simple and do not require much complexity. Of course, there are some very challenging one like GTA 4. Thanks for your response!

Me too! I envy those who can play it now. Too bad it's only available for the latest console in the market right now. They are still costly for the time being, and I am going to wait price slash. I think it's because of the game architecture is much more advance and too graphic intensive, until the previous generation of game console couldn't support it. I can imagine the game play graphic will be stunningly beautiful. You are right, PC version is another good option. Let's see the PS3/XBOX360 price drop or the PC version come out earlier.

Haven't played it yet, but ive watched tons of videos of the gameplay on youtube...That game is freakin' marvelous! If only it had came out when it was supposed to, it would have blown halo3 out of the water!!! My friends Halo 3 is actually gathering dust..

That's right. GTA 4 is a game killer. I have read the news in the week of its launching. It says it made HALO 3 a trivial game. The graphic of the game is astonishingly refined, sharp and amazing. The web site review claims that the picture are onscreen capture without going through image enhancement. That surprised me! Unfortunately, right now I am still waiting for the budget for a PS3 or XBOX 360. My PS2 can't play it BTW, thanks for your response MetalGearz!

I want to play it but my PayPal account isn't activated yet to buy it off Ebay, in my country it's REALLY expensive so Ebay is the best solution for me. I hope I will get it soon and get to play it, however since i'm from Romania online isn't supported in my country, so I guess trial account rules, right?

Just wonder why your paypal account is not activated? Is if being freeze by the web admin? It's too bad that software are sold at sky-high price in your country. I can imagine the suffering of the gamers there . Well, at least you find a better option by buying online through Ebay. I am surprised that Ebay isn't supportable in Romania, and I am not sure the reason about it. By the way, thanks for your response!
