Grand Theft Auto: IV has an install and Gervais

Published On April 17, 2008 | By David Wriglesworth | News

In a post on the NeoGAF forum, a 1UP writer posted about an install after playing the PlayStation 3 version of Grand Theft Auto: IV. The install lasts about 5 minutes which is “nothing” compared to Devil May Cry’s 22 minute install.

Rumour has it that the XBOX 360 version will feature an “optional” hard drive install but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

It has also been confirmed today that The Office and Extras star Ricky Gervais will star in Grand Theft Auto: IV as part of Liberty City’s stand-up comedy club. In an interview with Shortlist magazine, the comedian said: “It’s a first – which always interests me. It was shot in New York, my favourite place in the world, and I got to wear a tight lycra suit as part of the digital process. No, hold on, that wasn’t so good. Unfortunately they captured the whole horror, except I look slightly tougher. It’s seriously a big deal, though. Games have outsold Hollywood for the past few years so it’s nice to be a small part of that.”

Gervais teased that players will not just find him in the Comedy Club but somewhere else in Liberty City so keep an eye out for him.
