Rockstar really got on the ball with this one, though unfortunately the damage has already been done. My best regards to the original leaker of the video. May his legal troubles be swift and as painless as possible...
I hope Rockstar owns his children after this incident. Just to get some web recognition he posts the intro of the greatest game ever created in crappy youtube quality. Shame on him. I didn't watch it and I hope any real GTA fan would do that same. This intro should be experienced the way Rockstar intended. In HD on a big screen TV while massively baked. Get him Rockstar! Sic the legal dogs on him!
And a quick drive through to the first safe house. I think there are other things that we should worry about being spoiled in this game... Though you are right about people needing to stop spoiling things for others, I think the fact that the 360 version was leaked to the internet is far more damaging than the first 7 minutes of the game viewed from a crappy angle.
But why spoil it on such a crappy little screen when my 60 inch is waiting for the 29th. I wonder what legal consequence this guy has let himself in for ?
if anything it's the store not he person, some store sold it early breaking the release date and that's why Rockstar wants to talk to him. They want to go after the store.
I must say that I was debating whether or not I should watch it. I just have no willpower. But having watched it I can say its only made me more hyped for the game. I dont feel like the intro was anything you aren't expecting, so much has been said about the game that this doesn't really feel like anything too much of a spoiler. It just made me want it even more. And most of it is the intro and loading and story cutscenes, you only see a minute of actual gameplay and SPOILER below: asdfasdfafgasd*itsjustdriving *asdpoijasdf
Why watch it now? There is less than a week to wait! You will ruin it for yourself...be strong!
I mean think about all the movies you go see, and as your watching it do you say "oh this movie sucks because I already seen this part in the trailer" ...No So seeing the intro really doesn't spoil the game for you, because weather you see it now or later it's just the intro, and that's just a small part of the game. The game is huge. So really it's not going to mess up your experience. "just my thoughts on it, and that's why I watched it"... and loved it.
I agree. If you've watched the trailers and been reading all the previews then you aren't gonna learn anything new here. So this isn't that much of a spoiler, and given the low quality its not like you feel like you've spoiled something. It feels more like a teaser.
If i were Rockstar i would be more worried about the 360 version currently being down by probably Tens of Thousands of tight arsed Lolly Gaggers.
Not even a mere two hours and already a response from Rockstar and it's being pirated too. What a shame really. Hopefully some mature gamers will have the patience to buy it legally and enjoy it.
It's a bit weird. I'm really against doing that and I think whoever did that video should be punished, but I couldn't resist watching (and loving) it :). Hope the game runs that smooth all the time on PS3 :) That wait is killing me...
They are looking into it, well if they didn't want me to see the game in low quality they should have released video for the websites, so by now we would have seen high quality -game play. Not one Game site has video to go with all these reviews that have come out, not one. Even some of the biggest game sites have no video of actual game play. So you tell me what's going on, this close to release and Gametrailers.com doesn't have game review of the biggest game of all time. Rockstar? Seriously what gives. First week sales are going to be strong no matter what. So why try to hide video - The more you hide it the more people want to see it. -Maybe that was your plan all along.
I bet it is a part of the plan :) Turn up the hype :)
GT's review will be up on Sunday as well as G4 exclusive gameplay footage, so what's the issue?
Why bother? The game itself is already floating around on the internet. As soon as one video gets shut down another will pop up somewhere else. Its like trying use your fingers to plug holes in a dam. futile.
...the floodgates are open. This will be like them trying to put the air back into a balloon that's been pricked with several needles.
Good for Rockstar. I haven't watched the video and have no intention of watching it, but I'm glad they know who it is. With 5 days to go, this isn't the last story there'll be about leaked info.
http://www.gametrailers.com... theres the leak. :D
Well I watched it and there wasn't any spoilers in it IMHO. We already heard much of the voice work in previous trailers, the only thing of interest was the gameplay of the driving.
All these years and i'm still amazed at how quickly things spread on the internet!
Not watching it & I would suggest everyone who is going to buy the game, don't let your curiosity get the better of you. I made a mistake once, I am not doing it again.
It's not bad, trust me with that. You hear the voiceover "This is the mansion?" "No, the mansion is the dream, this is just temporary" stuff on previous trailers. DESCRIBING THE VIDEO The protagonist comes to Liberty City like how immigrants historically came, via boat, and he gets into a car and that's pretty much it. It's no different than watching the trailers. The car travels around this port town almost, so you dont see the upstate buildings, not much traffic or cars on the roads, its around dawn or dusk it appears. All in all, nothing spoilerish
WOW they are taken it seriously i mean the video didn't have any walk gameplay just the intro and some driving and i already download it^_^ sue me if you can!!!
Hook it up dude!!! I wanna see the video!!!! PLEASE!!!!!!!
they siad dont want people to see in bad quality just use a better cam lol =)
i'm so sad.. i could not resist.. =\ but i jumped the cutsean "no spoilers"
Rockstar shouldnt be mad, this just allows more people to want the game and possibly even more pre orders rolling in, and plus we still have a better quality gameplay to look forward to on sunday :)
ok LONEWOLF231 you can download it from http://www.mediafire.com/?f... or you can watch another one have walk gameplay best quality from http://www.dailymotion.com/...
I think i'll wait to see it in HD in my living room. I am sort of interested in the gameplay videos though...
The quality is so bad that it won't spoil anything. It does give you an idea of how it'll run when your actually playing it though.
If U smell what GTAIV is Cooking?
I sense R* are about to unleash the Dogs of War!
