It's disappointing the city is just as small as GTA4's city.

Even just Los Santos proper looks a little bigger than Liberty City (and all the water between IV's islands). And then you have 3 or 4 other towns and huge swathes of country, desert and mountains between it all. I'm honestly not disappointed in the slightest.

How the hell do you see that? the map is barely 2/3rds of the city area, factor in the lot of GTA 4's negative space between the islands while GTA V is one complete land mass and it's about twice the size in just the city alone

What? It's 1 single city that's the entire size of all of GTA IV's world. How is that not a good thing? That's a massive playground.

it's supposed to have a bigger city than GTA 4.

Just imagine if this was a PS3 Excursive!

Got to love them excursives. I know what you mean though. Just look at the PS2 GTA games and what that did to sales.

It does have a bigger city than GTA IV. GTA IV had 4 cities. GTA V has 1, and it's pretty much the size of all the GTA IV cities put together. I don't get how this is such a hard concept for you to understand.

Wow! When it zooms out of Trevors picture and you see how tiny the car gets, it makes you realise how huge this map is.

Hype meter is off the charts right now.

still undetermined till we play this. how does he match gta 4 to gta 5? how do we know its scaled? its still his hypothesis , that doesnt prove anything.

with that said. the devs did say its bigger than gta4.

Didn't you notice? Just as he was overlaying gta4 over gta 5, he took that little square that was zoomed in on niko and put it next to michael so that you could see that niko and mickael were the same exact size. Then using the picture of niko, he superimposed the map of gta 4 such that the scale fit the niko picture already on the screen. its not opinion, he has shown how the maps compare. rewatch if if you don't believe me

gta iv hands down

Okay so if i got this right

The map size is roughly 3 times that of GTA IV
The City size is roughly same size as GTA IV

You know what I think would have been AWESOME..

If a small portion of the GTA V map was based on the Red Dead Redemption map, except it would be modern day and look completely different with homes, businesses, etc., but there would still be common Red Dead Redemption landscapes, rock formations, etc. that would still be recognizable.
