The answer to every gamer's prayers but the end of the American dream - Grand Theft Auto IV has arrived (full shipping schedule inside!)



From the publisher: What does the American Dream mean today?

For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past.

For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.

As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.

The action thriller Grand Theft Auto IV every gamer is craning their necks for and dying to get their hands on has arrived. This amazing game pushes your next generation consoles to the very limit and yet retained the smooth slick gameplay without glitches or massive loading time. This is one of the games that brings out the true worth of a PlayStation3™ or an Xbox360™.

Although the action, gun fights, drinking and gore are all highly exciting, they do not detract from the actual worth of the story. Criminals are portrayed as criminals, there is nothing glamorous about them, but it is precisely because of this honest portrayal of them that's why the gamers can identify with them. They, too, are people propelled by their desires or vulnerabilities. Liberty City is a place filled with these people, and given life by these people.


Rockstargames' Grand Theft Auto IV combines breathtaking graphics and sounds with a plot that shames even some of the best selling Hollywood movies. The Asian version for Xbox360™ has arrived today, shipping for US$ 59.90 only. The US versions for Xbox360™ and PlayStation3™, both sold for US$ 64.90 only, will arrive on Friday, 2nd of May.
