GTA 4 won't have a sex mini-game, Rockstar has told

Speaking during a visit to Rockstar's London HQ to get some hands-on with what promises to be 2008's biggest game, we were told there won't be any "Hot Coffee" style sex mini-games buried deep within the game's code.

The game's main character, Niko, will, however, be able to go on dates, arranged via his mobile phone, in clubs and bars dotted around Liberty City. The player needs to develop his or hers relationship with these women by taking them to trendy Liberty City hotspots. Impress them enough, and Niko will be able to take them back to his or her place and do the dirty deed - off camera.
