GTA 4 promises to be 2008's biggest game, and will no doubt sell more in its first week than Gears of War 2, Metal Gear Solid 4 and Resistance 2. Following our mammoth six-page GTA 4 first-look in January, we've returned to Rockstar's London HQ for our first hands-on with the gangster epic. The result? We've blown the game wide open with our hands-on preview. But we know you GTA fans want more, so here reveals 10 GTA 4 secrets we've discovered from the trip. If that doesn't satisfy your GTA 4 lust, nothing will.

10. GTA 4 will have loads of mini-games, and online leaderboards.

Rockstar isn't saying much about GTA 4's mini-games, but what I can reveal is that there will be lots of them and you'll be able to compare your scores via online leaderboards. There's darts, pool, bowling and even retro arcade games (Rockstar wouldn't say which ones). And if that's not enough there will be an Airport run for you to sink your teeth into - an illegal car race that's sure to prove popular with driving fans. There will be no casino mini-games though, and no rampages either. Bah. But there will be vehicle stunts - if you see a ramp that looks tempting, have a go. If you complete the stunt you'll unlock an achievement.

9. TWAT stands for Totally Wireless @, and the game's web browser looks like Rockstar's GTA 4 website.

You'll be able to browse news websites (on Rockstar's version of the internet) and check the coverage of your own handiwork. You'll be able to access email - you'll need to send a CV via email for an interview with a lawyer. TWAT's Internet browser will end up looking a lot like Rockstar's GTA 4 website, I'm told, and will be more for completists. But you will be able to affect gameplay through it.

when is your next game out? if you do bring out a new one will you be able to lets us, the player create thier own character and to be able to create there own vioce from high to low pitch etc. also, can you add tupac songs into the game and be able to create a gang in game or online because that would be good, in gta 4 there is hardly any clothes to buy and there is no aeroplanes for certian reasons but would you be able too add them and add more building too go in...
please would you be able to add little theme island such as gangs islands full of gangs, prostitutes and murdereres etc. and on the news would you be able to make intreseted news such as a death of a famous rapper (Tupac) but change his name to crisp-pak or something.. If you would do this, this would make the game more intreseted, not saying its not, and it would help you invent better ideas... if you would do this me and my mate would definitly buy it even though we have bought evey on that has cam out from gta london on ps1 to gta4 on 360... thank you for your time Jacob Goldsworthy

if you want to nick a car whitout smashing the window then you cant do it but if you get in a car whith a smashed window, while in the car use your phone and dial this number in 3625550100 that will repar your car but it will block this achievement (one man army, walk alone, cleand the mean streats and finish him) it also is a helath and armor cheat. hope this helps in some way?!?

WTF!!?! xbox gets exclusive DLC? Sony had GTA since it was a top down piece of crap and rockstar does this? Why? Because microsoft told them theyd give them an couple extra mil? There is no loyalty in this world and if i knew this before i purchased it i wouldnt of bought either version. And i own 360 and the ps3. This is why im starting to hate console gaming.
