Sad News: No GTA IV Demo Coming
If you were hoping to get a sneak peek at Grand Theft Auto IV before it hits stores, don’t hold your breath. When asked about the possibility of a demo, a representative for Rockstar replied:
I’m sure there won’t be. If there was we would have talked about it. With a game like this the guys at Rockstar North will want to spend every minute making the game look great. Most people know the concept of GTA anyway. I don’t know that the demo is worth the time and effort.
Also much of GTA 4 is the driving around and we wouldn’t be able to give out the whole city. We would have to give away half the game for free. People would think Liberty City is a tiny city. You run into problems.
So there most likely won’t be a demo for the game. Not that they really need one to get the word out on this game. They could probably just scrawl the letters “GTA” on a blank disc and probably still sell a million copies.
