i think i saw CJ in there running
after all it is in LS so you never know

edit @ below
idk dude
i only saw the trailer once so idk
could be wrong

IronFistChinMi2451d ago

Definitely wasn't CJ. I thought the same at first, but managed to pause it at the right moment and it's someone else. Hope he shows up at some point.

HappyGaming2450d ago

I passed it too he really didnt look like CJ :(

But CJ is somewhere in the city unless he moved (although it wouldnt fit the story cause he was back for good) or if they killed him off.

Tommy Vercetti vs CJ for Los Santos territory would be awesome :D

thebudgetgamer2451d ago

It didn't sound like Ray Liota, and if they use Tommy Vercetti but no Ray. Disappoint!

IronFistChinMi2451d ago

Ray burned his bridges with Rockstar, after bitching about how he would have charged them more if he knew how big VC would be.

Laxman2451d ago

Liota is a d**k. Crappy actor, and yeah, he always makes himself sound like a tool, especially when he said that about VC.

Hell no. He'd be 60 if the new GTA takes place in 2012. Don't wanna play as an old geezer, and if Rockstar is going for the realistic approach again, I don't think it would play out well given his age. I don't want to go through limited capabilities because Tommy boy has Arthritis.

More likely a background character.

oh man seeing Tommy this old bring tears to my eyes(if it's truly him)

Spitfire_Riggz2451d ago

from the looks of it, it is an old geezer they are showing

Tuxedo_Mask2451d ago (Edited 2451d ago )

What's wrong with playing as a geezer?

Iroquois_Pliskin2451d ago

Snake is younger than Tommy....

SmashBrawler1012451d ago (Edited 2451d ago )

And who could forget this guy?

Eiffel2451d ago (Edited 2451d ago )

Nothing if you're gonna enjoy getting calls on your cell phone from you doctor telling you two have to hang out to discuss your gout.

Was talking about this on Google+. I was thinking it may be his kid or someone all together different. If it IS Tommy talking, he would just be saying how he came to SA, doesn't mean you are playing as him. The Trailer is after all still a TEASER.

FragMnTagM2451d ago

It showed the protagonist (whoever he is) driving and robbing something in the pest control disguise. So I believe he is the protagonist if it is Tommy Vercetti.

It does fit and does make sense if you think about it. The guy in the trailer clearly has some gray hair coming in.

If he was around 20 something in the 80's, then he would be between 40-50 years old, and it fits. I have known some seventy year olds that are in just as good of shape as people in their forties.

I think if it is Tommy, this will be one hell of a game. Actually it looks like one hell of a game anyway.

JTX2451d ago

@fragmntagm I agree, I'd be happy playing as 40-50 year old tommy. I hope I can shave his head and name him heisenberg though.

Laxman2451d ago

JTX, nice reference. Would be sick to have a skinhead Tommy running around! My favourite GTA protagonist in the series.

RememberThe3572451d ago

Thats a good point. We actually don't know if the person speaking is the protagonist. It could be that he is a main character but not the player character. This character seems to already be rich, which would be a different approach from other GTA games where the story is a rags-to-riches tale. Everything you do in GTA is to raise to wealth and status, and if you already have those things why would you do all the crazy stuff you do in GTA?

It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out. I'm not sure if I want to play as a middle aged rich guy...

gillri2451d ago

i love it that we might be playing as a middle aged man

ReservoirDog3162451d ago

Haha, well, we are* gonna play as a middle aged man. It's just up in the air about the name.

And yeah! That's one of the reasons I loved Kane and Lynch. You always play as 20 something handsome guys or girls. It's so rare to get something else.

Jeez, I can't wait.
