Installation

You must have Vista Service Pack 1 or Windows XP Service Pack 3 installed PRIOR to installing and running Grand Theft Auto IV PC.

Right-click 'My Computer -> Properties' to see if you have the latest Service Packs installed, and if not check Windows Update and download before trying to install the game.

Installing on a non-English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, or Russian Operating System

There is a known issue with non-English, French, Italian, German, Spanish or Russian operating systems, where unsupported characters will appear on the initial installation screen (this screen then remains present in the background throughout the installation process).

To bypass this issue and install the game:

- Select the larger button at the bottom left of the initial installation screen and you will be moved on to a language select screen.
- Select either English, French, Italian, German or Spanish and the rest of the installation will continue in that language.

Grand Theft Auto IV Trophy Patch Released Early from RockStar!

250°
300w ago - It appears that RockStar have released the patch early, possibly to reduce strain on the servers.

To quote: So when RockStar says "Monday the 27th of October" it seems they actually mean "the evening of Sunday the 26th."

The GTA IV trophy patch is now live and ready to be downloaded worldwide.

So if you're not too busy exploring Africa, the Ishimura or Rapture, why not have another go around Liberty City?

Keep in mind that you'll have to start a new game as the trophies are not retroactive. But was anyone really expecting them to be?
 

Reggae man sues Rockstar, Take-Two for Copyright in GTA IV

50°
306w ago - Looks like trouble never sleeps in Liberty City, indeed. This time around, it's a music copyright lawsuit that's filed against Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV, particularly on the songs played on the in-game radio station.

Jamaican Linton White alleged in his complaint that the reggae song "Last Night" making its rounds on the GTA IV (Xbox 360, PS3) airwaves care of the reggae station, Massive B Sound System 96.9, was actually co-written by him with one David Brooks (aka "Mavado"). Apart from that song, there's also "Bullet Proof Skin", which he says he co-wrote with Brooks and Rodney Basil price.

Although Linton was recognized and credited as a producer on Mavado's Gangsta for Life album (2007), his beef is that he was not credited for co-authorship on the said tracks in the Liberty City Guidebook that comes along with a copy of the sandbox title.

Linton's complaint states that:

In the... Liberty City Guidebook... [Take-Two and Rockstar] designate D. Brooks and B. Konders as the writers of "Last Night." ...[Take-Two and Rockstar] designate D. Brooks and R. Price as the writers of Bullet Proof Skin." No designation is made of plaintiff as a writer.

Reportedly, plaintiff Linton is demanding for US$ 150,000, plus punitive damages and other fees. In Rockstar...
 

Has Rockstar abandoned the PSP?

50°
307w ago - A funny thing happened a couple of months ago. After completing the PSP version of God of War, developer Ready At Dawn Studios posted a matter-of-fact news story on their site about how they were packing up their dev kits and sending them back to Sony.

The company behind one of the must-play games on the PSP was giving up on the system completely. Around the same time, Sony itself announced a new partnership program where universities could buy up PSP and PS2 development kits on the cheap. It would seem that Ready At Dawn isn't the only studio giving up on the system.

Presumably, there is an assembly line at Sony headquarters where the old dev kits are repackaged for uni students. Maybe they throw in some typical student freebie favourites in the box, like free condoms, and booklets about doing drugs responsibly.

At any rate, this phase-out is already being felt at retail. There are fewer and fewer new PSP and PS2 games going on sale. Or in the case of the PS2, at least, fewer titles any self-respecting gamer would play. The line-up for both systems at E3 was pitiful – developers are abandoning Sony's older systems. And now Rockstar is joining the club. This iconoclastic software house has been a huge supporter of the PSP, bringing hit games...
