On the Grand Theft Auto IV PC Movie Editor

Updates to the PC section of the Grand Theft Auto IV Website offer some new information about the upcoming Windows edition of Rockstar's open-world action sequel, including word that the game will be released on December 3 in Europe, while it is still due on December 2 in North America. There is also a feature on the video editor in the PC edition, describing how you can splice together in-game movies, add titles, transitions, and music for your own feature films. They show off the power of the editor with some sample machinima movies set in Liberty City, showing off such diverse activities as driving, bowling, shooting, and spying on girls. The clips are linked to the Rockstar Games: Social Club TV, which is where gamers will be able to upload their own clips and view other player's movies.

I've been told, as a general rule of thumb, that you can expect to get about twice the performance for a given set of otherwise equal hardware developing for a fixed platform.

I suspect that most of the improvements to GTA4 relative to the console version will be a result of the significantly greater amount of both system and graphics memory on even mid-range systems, though PC system memory is significantly slower than that on the consoles. PC graphics memory throughput is of course many times faster than the consoles'.

It will be interesting to see how it turns out. Naturally, they could also totally stuff the conversion, which wouldn't help anything.

Either way, I'm really looking forward to it. I have never even seen it on the consoles.
