Anyone getting GTA 4?

Post by drspleen on Fri Apr 25, 2008 12:20 pm

Apparently it's region locked for the 360 so it's going to be a full $100 purchase (though apparently it's cheaper in the UK). It does look awesome enough to be worth it though. Anyone picking it up and what are the best deals around?

Region locked even in the US? Jeez. I have been considering buying either a 360 or a PS3 for a while now (and it will be a while until I get it) but this just takes the cake. First it's apparently going to be a watered down version and now its region locked for the cheaper console. I am not happy Sad

i think it's the only game i've come across so far that is region locked. i've been buying everything else from play-asia quite happily.

having said that i have heard people say that the PS3 version isn't region locked... i have no idea why these companies do what they do.

I'd love to get it, but I'm console anachronistic now. No way can I swing a PS3 or Xbox 360 past my wife. Sigh.

I'd be happy to get this game...Loved San Andreas up to the point where you had to pass your pilot's license to continue. I hate when games do that.

I could be wrong, but I thought the PS3 games don't have regions at all. The blu-ray can only play region B or all region discs though. Speaking of, the all region 5 disc blu-ray version of Blade Runner is available for US$19.99 from Amazon at the moment.

Haha! I'm in exactly the same boat! Except I just can't swing a PS3 or 360 past my pitiful salary Wink
Had the same trouble with the pilots license in San Andreas. Eventually went and bought a controller for the PC and in the mean time lost my save game. Was too lazy to try and get to that point again. I know I'll eventually get around to it some day but for now I'm having fun playing Vice City (the game that again I didn't complete due to lack of flying ability - the remote control plane!)

I can't stand the thought of not playing this on launch, so I preordered the SE for 360 despite the censorship crap. All my people are also on 360, so I'll be able to play them in the multiplay, but if it turns out after a month or so that the uncensored version is much better with a lot of differences, I'll sell the game on ebay and import the PS3 version uncut from Play-Asia.

I'd just be happy with a compliant wife Twisted Evil

Game is indeed as awesome as DBF says bad call not having an offline multiplayer feature but hey when some of you guys get it we can do an online thingo.
Driving at break neck speed and flying out the windscreen is my favourite bit or seeing DBF get his ass handed to him by a fat black woman in track pants. (that was not in the game that was at blacktown westfield)
