Saw this over at Voodoo Extreme
So if they do this with the PC version then maybe there is hope for some multiplayer action on the Xbox version. 16 is the magic number for multiplayer on the Xbox right now. This was in the April '02 issue of PC Gamer.Rockstar quietly let the world slip a few weeks ago that GTA III was coming to the PC. A key feature will be support for 16-person multiplay, and the PC version will also sport better textures at a much nicer resolution. The mouse/keyboard setup will be instantly familiar to third-person-action fans, too. We're definitely looking forward to this one.
