Jack Thompson reaches out to Take Two exec's mother

How far will Jack Thompson go? He has surprised us before with some of the most ridiculous arguments and court cases, but this is something I have never expected. Jack Thompson has sent a letter to Strauss Zelnick (Take Two's executive) mother with some pretty harsh wording. QUOTE The pornography and violence that your son trafficks in is the kind of stuff that most mothers would be ashamed to see their son putting into the hands of other mothers’ children, but, hey, your son Strauss has recently assured the world that he is "a Boy Scout, everybody knows that." I’d love to see the merit badges that Scout Troop handed out. Is there a Ted Bundy merit badge? If so, your loving son deserves one now. It should be red and green, for obvious reasons.This is just one insulting paragraph out of the whole letter. Sadly, there are a lot more. Jack even references the Bible.

Gta4 Sex!

San Andreas had hot coffee, GTA4 has sex in carsI Pick up a hooker in GTA4 yourself and check it out today. The more you pay the bigger the bang. If Rockstar can go this far why can't we have the sex mini game for the girlfriends we work so hard on getting to let us come in for some hot coffee.Parents and young children beware this gets a bit nastie. If you're under 18 then you should not watch or even listen to these videos or play this game! It is not for you!I had made a video of this too and was going to use it until I found this much better one made by IGN and it was already posted on youtube. Mine was shorter a little more to the point but I liked their video alot more. You can see mine below. As an after thought and seeing the cars used in the IGN video I should have used a convertible for my video and suggest that if your gonna check this out for yourself in your GTA4 game use a convertible.

Bizarre GTA2 rumor circulating the internet

Taking a quick break from GTA IV mayhem with a news story we feel should have been posted about 10 years ago... and probably was...I originally had no intention of making this post, but due to the rising number of websites covering the story I thought it would be a good idea. A number of respectable gaming sites have over the past couple of days posted up reports of a bizarre rumour regarding GTA2 and it's alleged impending release on to the Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Store, and I just wanted to put it out there as fact that there is no truth in this so called rumour.

Kikizo's GTAIV review and free Pißwasser

The lucky guys at Kikizo were the recipients of some free Pißwasser beer from Rockstar today, pictures of the stuff can be seen in their article. More importantly, their review is also finally out. They, like most other sites, have given the game an amazing 10/10 across all areas, but unlike other reviews, they've actually had time to go through and complete the game, and have kept their review spoiler free so it's okay to read.QUOTE The Final Word: Yes, it's worth all the hype and more. I absolutely love this game, and I can't WAIT for the episodic updates. Just make sure you get both of those endings! And don't even think about using cheats until you've done it properly.Check it out, Kikizo's GTAIV review.

GTAIV becomes UK's fastest selling game ever

ELSPA sent out a press release today with some amazing statistics on how Grand Theft Auto IV sold in the UK on day 1. The previous day 1 record was held by GTA San Andreas, which back in 2004 saw a total of 501,000 copies sold. GTA IV has "comfortably eclipsed" that record, selling a total of 609,000 units (combined PS3 and Xbox 360 totals) in it's first 24 hours.Of these 609,000 units, 335,000 were the Xbox 360 version of the game - beating out the previous record holder Halo 3, which had managed 266,000 on it's release day. Similarly, the game set a new record on PS3 with the game selling 274,000 units, easily beating out the previous record holder Gran Turismo 5: Prologue, which managed just 80,000 sales. The figures show that the Xbox 360 version is slightly more popular at the moment with 56% of the share, while the PS3 version therefore has 44%.

Grand Theft Auto IV out now in stores!

After a six month delay and years of waiting for most fans, Grand Theft Auto IV is now finally out in stores across the world. Australia and New Zealand were the first countries to enter April 29th and have GTA IV available to them, and around 12 hours later, the UK and the rest of Europe can now get the game. People living in the Americas still have a few more hours to wait. Also remember that the Social Club will shortly be opening its doors. So keep an eye on that for lots of cool features and stats.

No need to worry over the Social Club leaderboards

Have you been worrying about your chances being squashed in being one of the first to hit 100% in GTA IV, (to achieve the goal on the Rockstar Social Club) or for any other goal on the Social Club due to people receiving the game early? In a reply to an email sent to TheGTAPlace.com, Rockstar has told us that they are “taking care of it” regarding the leaderboards in the Rockstar Social Club (and with all the people who already have the game). Just letting everyone know there is no need to worry, and the playing field for getting your name on the leaderboards should still be fair even if those lucky few did get their copy early!QUOTE Hi Misho,Thanks for the email. No need to worry about people circumventing the leaderboards on the R* Social Club, we are taking care of it.Cheers,Webmaster@R*

GTA IV theme #2 available on Xbox Live Marketplace

Something which I've only found out today due to the fact this appears to have had no coverage whatsoever on the internets, not even from Major Nelson, is that the second GTA IV theme is now up on the Xbox Live Marketplace. It costs 100 points and features the artworks you've been seeing recently, the characters on a white background with some part of the city on it, and in my opinion it looks a lot nicer than the first GTA IV theme.Since there has been nothing about this anywhere, and not even the xbox.com page has been updated, I have taken some photographs of the theme off my television, and they're viewable on my flickr photostream linked below, click the thumbnails for bigger images.
