  • GTA IV crashing on your 60GB PS3? Re-install, baby


    There have been a few reports of GTA IV crashing on PS3s. The problem has been more or less identified as a problem with 60GB PS3 units, and Rockstar has advised that erasing your game data and reinstalling the game is the solution. Hmm. Isn’t this exactly the kind of thing people tried to avoid by buying consoles in the first place? Read More

  • Unreasonable Stance: GTA IV isn't violent enough

    Welcome to the Unreasonable Stance, where our own John Biggs takes the minority opinion on a tech matter and defends it with convenient data, spun numbers, fanboyism, and insults until he proves, without a doubt, that those that disagree with him are filthy mouth-breathers. Like all men of a certain age, I love violence, drugs, and fast cars. But I definitely don’t love Grand Theft Auto IV. Read More

  • Milk, eggs and video games: Even the 'regular' media praises GTA IV

    “That” game comes out today, I think, and one of the best parts of its launch is seeing how the regular, non-gaming press handles it. For example, the New York Times has a cute little story describing gamers’ “craving” for the game. All the bases are covered, including the numbers (five million copies expected to be sold in the next two weeks; the industry as a… Read More

  • UPS employees pilfering GTA IV disks en route

    I’m not a fan of UPS, despite it starting in my hometown. They’re late, and when they show up at my apartment with a package (at least once a month) they knock so faintly my dog can’t hear it. Also, they apparently steal video game shipments. At least three UPS employees have been fired in the last 24 hours for stealing copies of GTA IV out of shipping boxes. I’ve… Read More

    Yes, as we all know, Grand Theft Auto IV was leaked onto the Internet earlier this week. But just how many people have grabbed the game, roughly, from some of the bigger sites out there?

  • CrunchArcade: GTA IV pre-order and launch details for the big retails


    Why all the hullabaloo about this game? It’s just a murder simulator, people! but if you must be there to get it the day it comes out, your favorite retailer has probably made an announcement on how and where to go about it. Best Buy has a store list, Wal-Mart’s internal plan was leaked, and just lately GameStop released a 68-page PDF of all stores with midnight openings. Check… Read More
