This one of niko sailing, not an actual screen shot so ither art or screen from a cut sceen.

Please note the above image is GTA4.net's GTA IV HUD concept based on current known info. The screenshot is SA

Driving cam, this is said to be the new default placement of car cam while driving, centered above center line in road on off on drivers side, the cam possition can be moved on the go or you can also click other view options. I dont personaly like this placement, I would change it in game, the green ring arround your mini map in bottom left corner indicates your health lvl. notice in the screenshot that looks like one of the helicopters from san andreas just to the right of the cab. Can we fly that? hope so! THis is suposed to be a real screen from the game, probobly is but there is always that small chance its not.

Also some other new info, when buying weapons from your arms supplier it is said the price was $100 each.

while riding in a cab as a passenger you can actualy enguage in conversation with driver if you like, you can click a button to take you to destination right away or sit back and enjoy the ride, you can pay the driver double the fare to get him to drive twice as fast! Also you can pick a spot on your map and he will take you to that spot, so if you are headed to a mobsters house to take him out and dont want to roll up on his front door you can choose to be droped off down the block or arround back.

There are gps systems in car while you drive. How is this different from the minimap? well you can pull up your gps, click on a point in the city you want to go to and it will give you the quickest turn by turn rout to that destination.

Wanted stars are still set to a max of 6.

GTA IV is set to this decade.

in the begining of the game, Niko makes contact with Sgt. McReary. a crooked cop that has Niko under his thumb do to some dirt he has on Niko. Of course niko has to do missions for him including killing the crooked lawyer in the first mission.

The ingame internet will give Niko access to dating services, email, travel and shopping, amongst other things. Maybe now the hookers can come to you. Dial a Ho?

No more working out and crazy haircuts like in san andreas. The developers are going for a real as possible feel, even some of the cut sceens of NIKO executing people is said to be very realistic and sometimes shocking, the developers felt that a 400 lb Niko with a Pink Mohawk would take you away from the feel of the game they are trying to put you into.

The cars will take realistic damage.

"The most glaring addition to the gunplay is Niko’s ability to take cover, Gears of War style. Once you’re in cover, you’ll be able to blind fire or pop out to shoot"

Your riticule (sp?) will show the health lvl of your target as you fire on him.

More when I get it.

That second shot looks like its from GTA-SA. Coming around the corner by the beach safehouse. The map and ring arent, but the scene is. Actually the map is the same too.

Yes Now that I take a close look I agree, 2 other things stick out. first the palm trees, dont think they are common in liberty city, and second you can see some trees just coming being drawn into the pic in the distance, GTA IV is said to have an incredible draw distance so you will not realy see buildings just appearing, some people that have witnessed in game demos say that the great thing about this other than feeling more real is that you will be able to tell where you are by distant landmarks. you will be able to see the brooklyn bridge from miles away.

But it has been confirmed my several insiders that the camera default will be approx what you see in that screen shot. and that the green ring of health is present in GTA IV demo play. but at this point nothing is set in stone. even the button layout has not been finalized as of yet.

I read a report by someone that was invieted to check out gameplay by a representative about even cutscenes changing,

one guy got to go to a demonstration a while back then was invited back several weeks later.
The first time the cut scene where goldberg is killed by niko, Goldberg falls back after being shot and falls out the window, the next time the demo was showen goldberg slumps to the floor.

The music tracks heard during the demo play were said to be awsome but names of songs and artists were not given because Rockstar is still trying to get rights from the labels or what ever. so some of the songs heard durning demo might not even make it onto the game.

So I would take everything with a grain of salt till the game finely comes out. most of the info is pretty legit its just a matter of how the game is finalized. But every thing so far sounds pretty sweet.

From the people who brought you the Domestobot, we proudly present El Comercio Roboto! It's the robot of the future... from south of the border!

'Politicians may demand illegal aliens leave the country, but I want a Mexican gardener I can ogle!'

El Comercio Roboto! He can mow the lawn, if you know what I mean! Comes with six different attachments!

It's a half robot, half radioactive plant destined to take over the world. Only one 15-year-old school girl can stop it... by sleeping with it [Japanese]. Princess Robot Bubblegum and the horny radioactive plant, in all good manga stores soon!

Simon and Nigel have long dominated the art world in Europe, and now there's an incredibly retrospective. Back in the 1970s they proved that owls were sexual, by having sex with them. Then in 1987 they went wild in America with their coffee table art book called The Anorexic Gimp in Wonderland. It's been none stop incongruity since!

Now these middle-aged twin transsexuals are photographing themselves re-enacting famous atrocities from history dressed as gorillas! Once you see Hitler portrayed as a gorilla, it'll explain the war in a way you never imagined. It is truly shocking!

Are you ready to live the real estate dream? Whether you're new on the market or an old hack we'll take your dream to the limits of prestige in a spacious loft or an outstanding penthouse! It's a 500-square ft glass-coated box in the sky! With windows that won't open and a doorman that masturbates in your bed while you're at work! Only three million dollars! Only three blocks from the ghetto! Apply now!

'What kind of loser journalist are you?!'

'You know, you make me shiver the way you look at me, like I shiver in the bath looking down at the urinal, and I say 'man that's a lot of men's hair', and then I say 'Maurice, you are a fat ball of testosterone - you are massive!'


'Is it just me or is it just this angle?! What was she talking about? My little boy got the job done! But you know what? I'm drifting. The fact remains they are the same thing; for the working man, too much work. For the fat cat, and in your case a very thin and sexless, nicotine-stained cat, too many regulations. The working man wants spare time, spare money...'

Sometimes the family wants that Italian taste without those tiny Italian portions, that's why you should come to El Dentes - all the mama mia you can eat! It's Italian food like you'll never get in Italy. That's because it's an American theme restaurant! So the portions are huge, and the food tasteless and unhealthy. We've got a special linguini with Cheesy Poof sauce!

'Hey, when you're at El Dentes everyone's like family! A hyper, macho, food-obsessed, alcoholic family just like min!'

El Dentes - we've got more of what you love and less of what you don't. Like more calories and fat, and a lot less taste and nutrients! That's why it's El Dentes! All the mama mia you can eat!

possible suggestion of season changes

Weapons in GTA4 are a "precious commodity" and are "not easy to acquire"

The game is now fully confirmed to make extensive use of HDR LIGHTING.
go here to see some examples of HDR http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_rendering

Car/person interaction physics are now fully in place, meaning if a car suddenly brakes, the people inside are thrown forward.

The interiors/exteriors are completely seamless and the outside world can be heard, muffled, from the inside.

Car lights light up "convincingly" and reflect the street and the surroundings.

The name of Niko's cell phone network is "Whiz."

It has now been confirmed that Liberty City is not as big as San Andreas physically. It covers about 3/4 of the total area San Andreas did.

Additionally, the taxi driver will fulfil some of Niko's requests, for example if Niko is hungry, the cab will drive him to the nearest fast food restaurant. If hurt, then he'll drive to the hospital - places are accessible very quickly this way.

cops appear on your map as dots (while they're searching for you)

Similar to Saints Row, your radar will display a yellow line guiding you to your destination

It takes Niko roughly 3 seconds to hot-wire a vehicle.

At this time it apears that the game will only be playable in 720p rather than full 1080p, on the 360 anyway, hopefuly this may be changed, upgraded in the future.

Officer McReary's first name is Francis, and he knows about a felony Niko committed

There are no references to the September 11th terrorist attacks anywhere in the game.

SWIMMING is a confirmed feature, Thank god! thats the one big thing that sucked about vice city.

ITs stated that Niko is not actualy Russian but from som other eastern european nation. but dont worry, it is said that there will be plenty of russian bad guys in the game.

And the coolest thing I have come across... You know those goofy adds and talk show callers you hear on the radio in gta san andreas? Well there will be plenty of that in GTA IV and you can be part of it, you can call a rockstar set up radio station and rant on a few given subjects, if they like your rant you may get your voice put into the game to show up on one of the ingame radio stations. go here to check it out and take your chance. http://www.wkttradio.com/
