Well, there may be special bonuses included if you pre-order it as well!

Come October (That's *AAAGES* away) I may even be ready to get serious about a system upgrade... woohoo!

Right on - plenty of time to pilfer a couple of $ a day from my work colleagues/freinds/family members carelessly left purses/wallets to subsidise the sweet anarchic glory of the GTA series.

too bad the Australian version will be censored:

The multiplayer does look good.

Good Game (ABC) will be doing GTAIV reviews next week, but they had a small grab with the developers on tonights show that indicated the censorship has been done to a degree to prevent impairing the game experience... but of course they would have to say that wouldn't they.

Bastard - I assume its NSFW so I will have to wait till I get home to participate in the hilarity. Does he like it?

Actually, in a rather ironic twist, he has managed to take what is probably one of the most violent games and created one of his "cleanest" reviews in quite some time. While there is still smatterings of red pixels in the video, I don't actually recall noticing him using any of the naughty words he has been loading recent reviews up with.

I would probably stick with NSFW anyway, and as an HR drone, you should know better than to be doing personal web browsing on company time anyway.

Since when was it only a rumour? I thought it was just "long-awaited" or "much anticipated" PC version!

By the time it comes out i'll probably be caught up in the world of Spore, creating cute little creatures living in harmonious communities and playing with other like minded beings.

October/November was always the time frame that I had heard so no suprise there.

Wonder how chunky the minimum specs will be? New graphic card time?

The 512Mb minimum for graphics memory seems ...um... pesimistic. Given this is a port from the consoles which have 512mb or less memory in total, doesn't that seem a bit high?

OMG could GTA IV for the PC be a force for evil?
