    I just read about GTA4's multiplayer aspect and getting pretty psyched.
    IGN.com GTA IV Multiplayer Hands-On

    Sounds like it's going to be awesome, but the best game modes (Cops 'n Robbers) looks like it will require real teamwork. Now anyone who's familar with XBL knows most of the time when you join random games, there is no teamwork going on. Just shouting & cursing.

    I want to compile a list of XBL Gamertags of GBATemp members who are interested in playing GTA4.

    Leave a comment with your Gamertag if you're interested in playing with like-minded people [​IMG]

    If there's interest, I'll update this first post with other people's Gamertag to keep a handy list. Also, be sure to say you're from GBATemp when you add me or others so we know who you are!

    XBL Gamertags:
    poisonousjuice
    MC DUI
    Nerelas
    HerbSurgeon
    unris
    salamantis
    shiny 45
    jaxxster
    lenselijer

    I really enjoyed the multiplayer of the first game (serial cable "network" no less).

    Xbox live though is for me a bigger waste of money than the time I rented the last film in the matrix trilogy so unless one of my friends decides to get the game (in which case I will add something here) I will be missing out.

    can you take local multiplayer online, like 4 friends in the same room making up a team

    not sure. I doubt it will have split screens like Halo 3. Probably too much stuff going on. Supposedly you'll get to play multiplayer throughout the entire city, up to 16 people, not just specific maps.

    Completely agree with poisonousj. I've been following the game on IGN for a while now and so far no mention of local multiplayer. You can play in the entire city for multiplayer (its accessed through your ingame cell phone and you can mess around until the game is full of players and connected). Its mentioned in IGN source posted above.

    Edit: Typo.

    I'll be all over GTA4 when it lands, an early leak is inevitable. Won't be online myself much though but I can't wait to get stuck into the game and chat about it here!
    First game I've been really wrapped in the hype for in a long time!

    Afaik for mp theres 16 player max, this could be 4x4vs4, 8vs8, even 15vs1. When Saint's Row came out me and other staff and members made a clan and it was seriously crazy fun. The game modes were great, the action was chaotic and overall we had a blast, minimal lag too post patch. GTA4's MP is bound to outdo SR's and then some, gonna be epic. Surely the defining game of this gen.

    Already people are predicting it to sell 500Mil in it's first week, smashing the Halo 3 record by 100Mil! Personally I can see this game uber outdoing Halo 3 in everyway, across the board, and not just from over marketing it. /halo 3 dig.

    Also Saint's Row 2 isn't too far away and has quite a lot of interesting features not present in GTA4, check it out!

    sell the banned one, buy a new 360!!! [​IMG] then save up for a ps3 later, it will still be around! (I did just play Gran Turismo 5 though, and wow that game is awesome! but I know when GTA4 comes out, I won't even touch anything else for a lil while)

    Oh I'll be playing it for sure!

    I'll probably be playing a whole bunch of single player mode first though but I'll be playing plenty of MP as well.

    Saint's Row was fun as online but I could never get mates to play a game with me, I'm definitely looking forward to SR2 as well.

    Gamertag as per sig.

    I also realize I probably won't be focusing on the multiplayer aspect when it first comes out but still interested in getting a group of temp's who want to play multiplayer together.

    I added MC DUI to the list on the first post. I see other people who have their screen names in their sigs but I don't want to add them to the list unless they specifically request it.

    I'm not 100% which console I'm picking this up for, but just in case I do get the 360 version my Gamertag is: Nerelas

    Edit: It would be interesting playing with people that aren't random xbox live douches.

    I'm not sure either....My mate has a PS3 and is pretty into online gaming, my girlfriend has a 360 and the 360's Live service is better than PSN - the tuff choices that life presents [​IMG] . Maybe I'll end up buying both! I'lll have to see how good online play is first. I currently have it pre-ordered on PS3 burrr.. I just.. dont... know!

    Anyhows my Gamer Tag is HerbSurgeon for just incase I do get the 360 version and I would be more than happy to play [​IMG]
