yeah, just found that out. Got the older version of LIVE, and it forces you to upgrade.

MS really screwed this one up.

I am afraid I am but a humble Moderator here, I don't have any contact with Rockstar so I have no information. Believe me if I had anything to tell you I would. I am pretty confident though that this problem will be fixed pretty sharpish, you just need to look at the scale of the **** up to see that people at MS are probably bricking it.

I admit that it looks bad that no one has said anything Officially. I imagine Toronto are of the view "well it wasn't us so we can't say anything" and MS are just plain arse holes anyway so they wouldn't say anything. They spent nearly 2 years denying the red ring of death happened before caving in.

I also have the same problem. I uninstalled all live programs from control panel, and re-installed the old live files you can get from here: http://www.gamesforwindows.com/en-US...s/default.aspx and decline when it asks you to update. Granted you it sucks not being able to play online and use the live features but at least it will take care of the stuttering for when you play single player.

I too am glad to see I'm not the only one with the problem. I will just wait for a fix and play stutter free I guess.

This game has too many problems. It was bad enough of having to install unnecessary crap and having to register and login to play the game.

****!!##!@!@


I just installed GTA4 last night for the first time and I was wondering too why it was stuttering so badly every time I drove a bit. It seemed unusual considering that I just got my system.

F*** you Windows LIVE
