Identifying a chance to look good, a spokesman for the mayor had a go as well: “The mayor does not support any type of video game where you earn factors for injuring or killing authorities policemans.”

As the GTA IV preview in P3Zine, the totally free PlayStation 3 publication programs, however currently game commentators are thinking that GTA IV will include more realism and also less violence without repercussions, as RockStar has actually supposedly been speaking to ex-cops about how much tougher ordered crime is to obtain away with these days.
