'Grand Theft Auto IV' Does Not Have LAN Or Single-Screen Multiplayer Either (Public Service Announcement #2)

Last week I re-reported my findings that "Grand Theft Auto IV" does not have split-screen multiplayer. While the game has more than a dozen multiplayer modes, those modes are made to be played over Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network.

Readers of my post asked if the game supported multi-system LAN play, or if it had any single-screen multiplayer gameplay that two friends could play with one system and one TV. The answer to each of those questions is "No." I've checked and double-checked this with Rockstar Games.

"GTA IV" multiplayer is all online or bust.
