GTAIV multiplayer details invoke feelings of friendship

We could blab about the single-player mode of Grand Theft Auto IV, but we've been kept in the dark about the multiplayer options for the game and finally found something. We're going to go ahead and detail them below, so enjoy.

One multiplayer mode will require you to seek out your opponent and eliminate him. How would you find him in such a big city? He's got to get his crime ranking thing up to seven stars, then he'll pop up on your radar. After that, seek him out and destroy him. Like the Terminator.

There are more modes to come, but that's all we were enlightened to for now. As for the single player mode, an in-game internet and cell phone will be integral to the game. Think ... Front Mission 3 with the pseudo-internet. You use the phone to order up more weapons, et cetera, so don't worry about running to a weapon shop while being chased. Call on the run! More details to come, we're sure.

5. I won't be shocked if GTA IV sees a Medal of Honour style delay for the PS3. They've already commented on the difficulties they're having in trying to code for it...

6. Hahah..difficulties trying to code GTA4? The game looks like a freakin' PS2 port so far, what could be hard?

7. These morons should have dev'd for the PS3 first then ported to 360. Everyone wins that way.

Should be cool nonetheless.

11. @ Ste Geiger, Tim

Dude, they never had problems coding for the ps3.
They had problems coding for the Xbox 360 because not every Xbox 360 user has a hard drive. Get your facts straight before you start some kind of comment war with a bunch people who get pissed over polygons.

@ Popfrogs.
Have you ever coded a video game replica of New York? No. So don't say stupid shit about developers if you aren't better. And you must be blind and retarded if you think GTA:IV looks like a PS2 port.

12. ...because everybody loves to hunt and kill their bff.

13. it's et cetra dumb ass

14. @11, Jake
The PS3 is difficult to code on dumbass, all the game producers have even said so, its something to do with the console using linux rather than windows ActiveX. Obviously the shitty 360 core systems are having problems as well because they have no hard drives, but the PS3 is difficult to code for!

15. @Popfrogs : It's got ROCKSTAR North written all over it's visuals, don't mix that up with last gen graphics.

Getting pretty excited about this title and for good reason, It will be seriously good, of that i have no doubt.
