Compared to the previous games GTA IV will be looking to significantly expand its base multiplayer options. This time around up to 16 players will be able to play together in 15 multiplayer modes ranging from Races to Cops N Crooks. All of these modes will feature a robust set of customizable options that can be set by the host. Players will also be able to fully customize their online characters so there won't be 16 Nikos running around.

If the game hits PCs as expected later this year these built in features will no doubt be a boon to the mod community.

Strauss Zelnick, Chairman of Take-Two, stated, "With Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar is setting a new standard for next generation video games. Certain elements of development proved to be more time-intensive than expected, especially given the commitment for a simultaneous release on two very different platforms. We all recognize that perfecting the game is vital and I can assure everyone it will be worth the wait. We owe it to the game's millions of fans, to our dedicated development team, and to our shareholders to make sure that Grand Theft Auto IV is a groundbreaking gaming experience that takes maximum advantage of next generation technology."

better late than never? or better not compete with other blockbusters over xmas?

"The suit alleges that Thompsons public nuisance tactic essentially violates Take Twos First Amendment rights. Lawyers for the game publisher argue that the Florida statute under which Thompson is seeking to have the games declared as nuisances essentially makes the controversial lawyer a private attorney general on behalf of the State of Florida.
