I hope it's like San Andreas and past GTAs----Bring Back Controller Cheat Codes!!!!
I hope it's true. I"m ready for a new GTA game. I just hope they go back to the fun gameplay style like it was in GTA Vice City and San Andreas. GTA 4 just didn't do it for me at all! I miss the crazy, wacky over-the-top fun that was in those games. GTA 4 tried to be too realistic. I hope to see all the things that made San Andreas great! Many different locations and environments, as well as another big mountain, parachuting, jets, helicopters, tanks, combines, etc. etc. Also, I liked being able to go lift weights and it affected your stamina. You could also get fat if you ate too much. It was just so cool how many things you could do in that game. You could also have a girlfriend, which was kinda neat.

Also, PLEASE bring back controller cheat codes. I don't want to have to open a menu and enter a code into a damn cell phone. That sucked!! I miss the old days where I could just memorize the cheats and I could do it over and over again for more ammo and health/armor. Those were the good days!

Did they attended to E3 2006 where GTA IV announced? No. Instead, Peter Moore took the stage and show the tattoo he made onto his arm to announce the game. They don't necessarily have to be in E3 in official capacity to announce next GTA game. Maybe it'll be announced in Sony or Microsoft or maybe even in Nintendo conference. Who knows.
sofocado  +   1547d ago
I hope they keep it fun like GTA IV. I like the feel of GTA IV better then the others.
MrBeatdown  +   1547d ago
Don't forget Agent. And Chinatown Wars for DS.

Rockstar never attends E3, but three times now their games have been announced there. Not attending and not having a booth doesn't mean they can't have Sony or MS, or even Nintendo unveil their game, or simply release a trailer online during E3 week.

Multiplayer in GTA4 was pretty fun. I loved playing especially Cops n Crooks and Turf Wars.

Cops and Crooks should be back in V

wouldn't it be great if they set it say 50 years or so into the future!!

How much more interesting would a GTA game be with a city full of detail/atmosphere...but set in the future.

They would have my money day 1.

But if it is just another GTA that is the same as GTA4 but different city...or set in the past (which we already have a few open-world games set in the past anyway), then I'm not all that interest tbh.

What's the big deal with using a phone for the cheats? It saves your numbers.

Now you memorize the key strokes to open phone, go to cheats menu, and choose the cheat, rather than 15 arbitrary key strokes.

I'm excited about GTA V and all, but what about Agent? Hopefully we'll get something on it at this year's E3.

well one thing to note here is
take-two have signed RS to new contract so their contract no longer ending in January 2012

even if this is announced this year i expect it to come out between april-august 2012

gta 4 came out around summer and did pretty well. GTA is the only franchise that doesn't need fall release date to sell

GTA V is gonna suck if it's multiplatform.
metsgaming  +   1547d ago
i dont think its really the fact that its multiplatform that will make it bad. They need to go back to the old controls and make it fun like the old ones.
Wenis  +   1547d ago
I agree... it should be a PC exclusive
Focker420  +   1547d ago

Did GTA San Andreas and Vice City suck??


Did the graphics make it a bad game?? No. Yes, obviously the graphics would be better if they focused on developing for one platform, but making a multiplatform game doesn't automatically mean the game will 'suck'. The graphics may not be what you want them to be but that isn't the number 1 factor in whether a game is good or not is it?

They filled a whole disk with PS2 level textures, so no they didn't. If you want PS2 graphics maybe the next GTA won't be limited by DVD9.

I'm not so sure. I say keep it in real world LA and use whatever they used for la Noire. Either that or do new Orleans, Prague, or Moscow. The seedy environments that could b created there would be perfect.
liveActionLeveler  +   1547d ago
obvious stealth trolls need to shut the **** up
metsgaming  +   1547d ago
I really hope they dont go back to LA, they should be back in Vice city before they go and do that. Oh and please fix the controls and make them like there were with 3, vice city and SA. Remove the police circle thing and go back to the old system of doing it. Have a large map, long varied story, no lame main character. Just bring the fun back and make it a lively and vivid game like it used to be.
omi25p  +   1547d ago
i liked the controls, I liked the new police radar made it much more realistic and it think GTA IV had a great main character and story.
Dee_91  +   1547d ago
smh the police circle is basically the same as the old star system..
BryanBegins  +   1547d ago
You like a characters that are controlled like a tank? You like cars that can't turn?

Rockstar makes great games with awesome stories, but they need to improve their controls. They have always been behind but it's more and more obvious now with so many great 3rd person shooters out there.

Within 3 days we'll know if it's real or not. Though i would Love to see a new GTA as it's been a while since the last came out.

If not GTA 5, I'll be happy even if they announced "GTA Vice City & San Andreas HD Collection". :D
metsgaming  +   1547d ago
if they do a collection i think it would be cool if they combine the maps so you can fly to vice city from the san andreas map. That would be awesome.
blumatt  +   1547d ago
Yes!! I want Vice City and San Andreas in HD with trophies on one bluray disc! I'd pay $40 for that! I'd be playing San Andreas jumping off that damn mountain over and over for days!!! haha So much fun in that game!

Well, actually, they're not a selling point for me, but for many people it would be. I'm not a "trophy whore." lol

Will most certainly be at one of the big 3 conferences but which one?

Could be Sony's to link in with Agent, MS's since they need a big bombshell and they had exclusive DLC before or Nintendo to show they have strong 3rd party support for Project Cafe.
rob6021  +   1547d ago
Supposedly if Take Two has their conference tomorrow, they'll unveil GTA V 1 day before E3 - so we'll know tomorrow.

GTA should really go overseas to london, japan or even better....isreal! Imagine walking down the street, u stop to jack a hooker and BAM, the coffee shop next to you blows up from a suicide bomber.
Pintheshadows  +   1547d ago
Let me guess, you were that hooker? Wait.....that sounded better in my head. Sleep deprivation is awesome.

Anyway, yes I'd like a foreign setting. Maybe not Japan but Marseille or Barcelona. I think that would be good. London is just too depressing for GTA. The main character would just be getting trampled by angry businessmen because they missed their train.

I hope to see a middleground (where ever it is set) of the bustling city from 4 and and RDRs beautifully created countryside complete with wild life and dotted with smaller towns. I think they can pull of bringing the SA concept forward without impeding on what they started with 4. I would like the variety of activities back though. And military response. And bicycles because as SA taught us they are a tanks worst enemy.
just_looken  +   1547d ago
fyi they have gone overseas gta london look it up.
maniacmayhem  +   1547d ago
I remember, it was an add on for the ps1.

GTA Isle of Wight.

GTP Kerguelen Island. The P stands for penguin. It's a tiny island in the middle of the pacific with a bird research lab of sorts on it. I just want a game where you can drive penguins.

I hope this is an exclusive, most times I don't care about this stuff since I feel most gamers should enjoy the best games that are out their but sometimes a game would do better if it was an exclusive and this is one of them. I know going multiplatform is all about money but I'm thinking of it in a gamers point of view.

Blu ray = more content, bigger map, no content getting cut

Sorry 360 fans but GTA would be way better on the PS3

scotchmouth  +   1547d ago
Don't forget to add the drug dealing from China Town wars! That would be clutch in a 3D environment. Plus the vehicle selection of SA and we would have a winner.
BryanBegins  +   1547d ago
We should be allowed to be a pimp and make money this way too! lol
Kee  +   1547d ago
Part of San andreas was called LS as in LA. So I doubt LA will be in the next one.

It's already been done. They could revisit it as they've done before with Liberty city (as in New York).

Then again Vice city was supposed to be Miami.
That is also an option.

They could also do it in London (as they did do a 2d game called GTA: London long ago) but I doubt it'd be as good a setting as america. There'd be much less guns.
Pintheshadows  +   1547d ago
My choices would be Marseille, Barcelona or maybe Moscow. Obviously parodies. But really what I said further up is what I want to see.

Not the penguin thing by the way.

Make a GTA game based in Chicago! That is all.
BryanBegins  +   1547d ago
Nah, Chicago would be too similar to Liberty City. Going to Vice city or SA would provide a better game IMO
pip77  +   1547d ago
Hopefully R* will release some news about Agent as well.
lazertroy  +   1547d ago
GTA V Should be similar to Driver parallel lines. Where you started off playing in the 70's then later on in the game you started playing in modern day time. Also GTA should be in more then one location why not different countries China, London,LA etc. We can catch a plane,Boat or a train to get back in fourth. This is my vision for next gen GTA. Thats why I want it to be exclusive because the 360 will hold the game back as usual.

Bull5hifT  +   1547d ago
I think if people could handle a 3 disk game like L.A. noire why not cut up San Andreas 2 into Three parts for each city, so the disk makes sense.. Then the 360 wont GIMP the ps3 again ...... At least microsoft opened up the 6.8GB usual disk to handle 10GB.. Wonder how they got passed the 9GB limit of dvd's .... I really hope rockstar see's the acceptance of L.A. Noire by 360 owners as a sign that gta can be cut up too

The Houser Brothers said The Gta Series was made to make fun of American Culture.. Not sure if they planned to take it elsewhere, a parody of american life heavily influenced by Movies portraying America in Certain ways, Good Fellas Menace II Society ans such and such; i know about gta2 london.. Maby they thought it be okay to make fun of there Home Town

Trust me, americans would....not get.... Modern-day London. It would be such a difficult city to replicate, and its surrounded by motorways, so it would be very awkward to set map boundaries.
Psychotica  +   1547d ago
I think the drug traffic between LA and Juarez, Mexico would create the ideal setting for the next GTA. Juarez is one of the most violent crime infested cities in the world now.
EazyC  +   1547d ago
Yes, perhaps have it much like Red Dead Redemptions set up with different places to travel.
