Rockstar Games eventually releases Grand Theft Auto 4 for the PC gaming community. December 2nd, 2008 will be the day when people will raid over gaming stores all over the world. It is for sure that this game will be the megaseller in december as it has proved for the console gamers in may.
In contrast to the console version the PC version requires online activation – but Rockstar learned from the Spore desaster and lets you activate your copy of GTA4 as often as you like and once activated it simply runs, no annoying re-activations required.
As a bonus feature for the PC community Rockstar included a video editor (see video below). Using the video editor you can record and convert videos of your most stunning stunts and actions scenes. Anyway we never missed it when playing the PS3 version.
Even Barack Obama just mentioned Grand Theft Auto IV in a speech some days ago. Although he did not really bash it, he reminded the audience that video games nowadays also mint children (even though GTA has gotten M Rating in the U.S.). Nonetheless Rockstargames announced GTA IV topped the $500 million in sales in its first week of release.
And Rockstar Games are moving on, they just released a GTA IV (Grand Theft Auto 4) Screensaver for Apple Mac OS X Leopard and Tiger and for Microsoft Windows Vista, and XP. Although the screensaver just contains still images, it really motivates to play that game. Let’s see how long I will be able to hold it before I will buy it ;-)
