Nooo

Why? You're probably buying it anyway so it's good in a way that they don't show that much. I'm trying not to watch anything until I have the game in my hands and play it for myself.

i dont mind as long as they show Agent
Hydrolex  +   471d ago
Im not surprised, they have never done such a thing...
Hydrolex  +   471d ago
I just want them to delay it and release it with ps4...god, that would be so awdsome
famoussasjohn  +   471d ago
Hydrolex - No. No more delays. I need this in my Xbox now, and possibly PC because the mods are amazing on GTA4!
Electroshocked  +   470d ago
Good strategy, but considering the amount of content that will be in GTA V, and the fact that Rockstar North stated that they're trying not to give a lot of it away, so whatever you see, will most likely inspire excitement, not ruin surprises for you.

On topic: Surprise, f***ing surprise...

new gamers or why is everyone acting like Rockstar has been showing at E3 these past years? They never do.

Exactly. Just Google "Rockstar not going to e3 20--" & see for yourselves.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   470d ago
Precisely like 6, 7 years now.

GTA won't be at E3. Bad for us, good for competition.

As per norm.
TrevorPhillips  +   471d ago
I honestly don't mind, not long to go anyways till the game releases :)
coolmast3r  +   471d ago
Agreed. We've seen too much about GTA V with all those previews and tons of trailers.
JKelloggs  +   471d ago
Never enough.
aiBreeze  +   471d ago
Does Rockstar have something against E3 or something? Sounds beyond ridiculous not to have GTA 5 there not to mention a kick in the teeth to long term fans attending.
Hellsvacancy  +   471d ago
Did R* ever say they were attending E3 this year? I dont think they did, so they aint letting anyone down, well, you maybe, cry babies will cry though

Edt: This years E3 will be all out about next gen, why do you think Nintendo is skipping it? youve already stated that GTAV is one of the most "anticipated titles of the year" do you think thatll change because R* dont attend?

aiBreeze  +   471d ago
It's the biggest gaming convention in the world and when you have one of the most anticipated titles of the year coming out soon, it seems like common sense to want to show it off. The point of my post is that I just can't fathom their logic in not wanting to attend.

And cry baby? Really, do people even still say that these days?
DARK WITNESS  +   471d ago
seriously though... how long you been watching E3? When was the last time you saw R* there? I am not talking about a 3rd party talking about R*, I mean R* actually there...

They have not been at E3 in... well since I can remember.

If R* want to show something big off they may show something just before e3 or just after, but they do things on their own terms.
dboyc310  +   471d ago
Because they will be showing AGENT ;) Heads are going to roll !!! One more month!
Blaze929  +   471d ago
lol, Agent
coolmast3r  +   471d ago
I don't care. I've seen a lot of stuff regarding this game in the past several months. I don't need more cause it's only 4 months till release.
claud3  +   471d ago
I am happy for them not to show the game... Spoiling it makes no sense

Nice decision R*

Wait
Weren't you saying Nintendo's decision to not have an E3 Presser to be bad (even though they would still have a software pressence at E3) Now Take-Two is saying they won't be showing their biggest game at E3, which is sooo important for media attention, is a good decision?

Smh/
claud3  +   471d ago
Nope, i said that E3 sucks and will always suck

I care not for E3 and always hated it... So i am glad neither are turning up

And i hope E3 is scrapped for good
famoussasjohn  +   470d ago
Rockstar doesn't really need to prove much, we know the game is going to be quality, plus they've been teasing us with screen shots and 3 character trailers in one day was more than enough to get me excited for the game. The Wii U needs games right now, so to not step on stage to show what they have in store (and it doesn't just have to be games, it could be new features that could be added to the Wii U) is disheartening. Plus when was the last time you saw Rockstar show off anything at E3?

Also, how are you comparing 1 game/1 developer to a console manufacturer that should be trying to shed as much light as possible for their newest console? You can expect PS4 and the New Xbox to be the main highlights at E3.

In that case
I stand corrected and am in complete agreeance with you.
phinch  +   471d ago
Because they will be too busy showing off agent ;)
jrbeerman11  +   470d ago
they will be busy showing off NOTHING
THC CELL  +   471d ago
My mind is on ps4. Games come after
Kennytaur  +   471d ago
No surprise there, Rockstar is one of those companies that don't give a crap and follow their own path. Although I'd rather have an E3 showing over a trickle of bullshots.
JimCom95  +   471d ago
I'm not surprised, rockstar usually doesn't show at e3.
Evil_Ryu  +   471d ago
i will buy a rockstar game with a blind fold on unless its la noire 2.
jrbeerman11  +   470d ago
whats wrong with LA Noire? well besides the work conditions at bondi anyways....
KingKevo  +   471d ago
So Rockstar will make an appearance at one of the big press conferences, either Sonys or Microsoft. Well, fair enough. It makes sense not to have a huge booth with demos if you prefer to give the press a walktrough of your demo, which Rockstar has always prefered. It's not a surprise and im really excited to see what they are going to show.
seanpitt23  +   471d ago
Have they ever shown a gta at e3.
Perjoss  +   471d ago
its GTA, they don't need to show anything. In fact, the whole dev team could stand on a stage at e3 and say that "the development of gta5 has gone horribly wrong and nobody should buy it" and it would still sell a bajillion copies on day 1.
steve30x  +   471d ago
Rockstar rarely show their faces at E3 so why should we be surprised
timmyp53  +   471d ago
Yay! I'm actually happy. I wish more studios kept the quiet route so we can be surprised and generally excited when they do release new info and media on the game. Not to mention avoiding you knowing the whole story of the game before the game actually drops.

Do the really need to?! After reading the Game Informer article and seeing the released official Rockstar trailers is enough for me. Keep me stoked until September. I'll be playing Gay Tony to brush up my skills. LoL!!

Rockstar at E3??

Lol, they make their own hype.

They deserve their own E3.
Prcko  +   470d ago
as expected
AnimeAvenger  +   470d ago
Wow I'm so surprised /s
LordMe  +   470d ago
R* never goes to E3, so this was expected.
b_one  +   470d ago
they may have show something on Sonys or MS show.
KaBaW  +   470d ago
I didn't expect them to. Have they ever really shown a GTA at E3? Or really anything at E3?
Gameplay999  +   470d ago
Well that sucks balls...
animegamingnerd  +   470d ago
is anyone really surprise by this?
mediate-this  +   470d ago
could e3 be going the way of the dodo bird
kupomogli  +   470d ago
GTA5 isn't at E3 because Rockstar doesn't want to make everyone else look bad. PS4? Next Box? Who cares? GTA5, baby!
bluetoto  +   470d ago
No wonder gaming is headed down hill, some of you people are TERRIBLE consumers, buying and supporting something without wanting to know what you are buying.

What are you 12? "they've never let me down before!"

wish I could say the same.

"I'll buy it day1 regardless!"

And people wonder why devs/pubs get away with all that they do...smdh
