GTA IV, Who's gettin' it?

Posted 26 April 2008 - 03:40 PM

Grand Theft Auto 4 comes out this Tuesday, looks pretty amazing. Who's gettin' it?

I pre-ordered a copy at Best Buy but I don't think I'll make the trip down there, I'm sure the local Wally World will have plenty of copies...

So who wants to do bank heist with me? ;)

Considering I got laid off with a decent transition pay, I might take some of it and invest in the 360 & game but it wont be the day it comes out. I probably won't get the check till middle of May.

I am as yet undecided. I might, or I might not. If I do, it'll most likely be for the Xbox 360. I may end up waiting for the PC version though...

A friend of mine has had his copy pre-ordered for what seams like forever now.

He's had plenty of time to save up for the television of his dreams though... so we're ready.

I'll just mooch off his 360 for a few days.

Name one guy with a PS3/XBOX360 out here who isn't getting it...Psycho's the only one I think ;)

Unfortunately, I can't preorder it, so I'll have to walk down to the store and pick up a copy myself.

I can't wait.
I even preregistered on Social Club

i'm not getting it on launch.

but i'm broke.

and happy with cod4.

after i get bored i will get it.

i can't decide if i need it now or not... normally i could wait cause the story isn't going to change but since the mp is so big now i don't want to miss out on the best part of that.

Me. I know I said I might, but I'm more likely to rent it and play it once, then forget about it. I haven't played GTA since GTA3 on the PC.

GTA III was more like a recreation of GTA II in 3D. And it was pretty frustrating as there was no Map feature built in. It took ages to figure out where Ammunation or even the target locations.

Vice City and San Andreas are a lot more fun than GTA III. Play these two and you'll know what I mean.

As for my bank heist, if you want to join, I am the only mad dog killer type of the group. So if you see money and bullets flying behind the counter and a woman screaming as she runs for cover, that will be me. I take no crap. Give me the money and I might let you live.

:lol:

I may or may not get it. If I do, I think Ill trade in a few XBox 360 games I dont play. There was a store here that was doing 20% extra on trade ins if you bought or preordered GTA IV. So, if they are still doing that I will try that cause I am low on cash. The other issue is I dont have the time to play it for hours on end, but if I have it I will try. We'll see.

I don't know how anyone can stay up for a midnight launch party, get it, play it and then have to go to work the next day. Unless you get Tuesdays off or taking it off, seems a bit over the top for me.

I will just wait a couple days, walk in and purchase it like normal people do. :)
