Rockstar slow to release in-game GTA IV screens
Twenty new screenshots for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto IV were released on Thursday, but with less than six weeks until release, in-game action screens are strangely still missing. – Gamepro.com
The newly released screens by way of the game’s official website seemingly depict cut sequences only, as have other images released so far.
“The graphics in-game are hot,” comments senior GamePro editor Chris Morell, “so I’m not sure what’s up.”
Indeed, several recent previews have noted the more realistic-looking visuals of IV when compared to previous Grand Theft Auto games.
It is common practice in the video game industry to promote the best-looking game shots, which are almost always pre-rendered cut scenes. Though usually, in-game shots are also released as a game’s launch date nears.
Grand Theft Auto IV arrives on Xbox 360 and PS3 on April 29. The sandbox action game is rated Mature and carries an MSRP of $59.99.- Gamepro
I must say, Rockstar is one of the most secretive company I’ve ever seen. They just refuse to tell until launch. I will most likely get Grand Theft Auto IV, but I don’t know if it is because it’s the best game ever or if its because Rockstar is keeping it secret.
