Sweet. I’m trying to wean myself off video games, so I won’t be buying it, but I have a friend who has it for PS3 who’ll let me play it someday. I’ve only played Vice City for PC, which I thought was awesome.

Heading to the store to pick it up after I get off work. I hope they still have some copies.

I’m just going to wait for the second shipment of the game to come in. Then at least I know I can get myself a copy easier.

I played last night for a few hours after picking it up from Gamestop’s midnight release (along with approximately 200 others) and I must say it’s blowing my mind. Off to play now!

i got it the day before release (played it without connection to the net) so i got a little head start, and so far i’m realy liking it, just played some online with a few mates :)

Let me know when you find the ‘Hot Coffee Mode’ equivalent. Hillary will go berserk.

@red auto save dude ^_^.
I got 25 hours into the game on ice blus xbox now i have to start all over again on mine heh. Fun right?

Anyway i think this game is amazing and without a doubt one of the greatest games ive ever played. Like fortris said the tv is awesome. I knew the game was great when i turned on the radio and heard this. All the characters in this game are pretty awesome too. Everyone has a very distinct personality and you start to feel like you know the characters which is pretty cool.Ramble ramble…. right well then im going to get back to playing.

ya somehow my auto save feature got turned off…ya get a little crazy when you stay up all night playin GTA IV.

@├╝ber: oh yeah…its a blast alright!

Just the massive-ness of the game is incredible. Now I’m almost 3/4 of the way through the game and I’m still seeing places that I’ve never seen before and hearing street-side comments that I’ve never heard before. Its so bomb!

RedmannX5's avatar

I am having some trouble with the loading though. Like I’ll drive up to a building and it will take a couple seconds to get the high-rez layers on, etc. Sometimes it’ll just freeze too. I’m not sure if its the game or my 360. Anyone having these troubles too?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Im thinking its your 360 because ive now played at 3 peoples house now and i haven’t seen anything like that.

Have you played online yet? Free mode is amazing.

RedmannX5's avatar

My Xbox Live Gold subscription ran out a couple weeks ago and I just need to renew it again cuz you can’t play w/ only Silver can you?

And if my Xbox is all messed up, can I send it in and get a new one or just get mine repaired?

El_Cadejo's avatar

Nah no playing online with silver.

Yea, Microsoft just extended all the warranties from 1 year to 3. So you should be fine warranty wise. Just give them a call and they will send you a box to ship your xbox in and it will take like 2 weeks or so but youll get a new one for free so its worth it.
