GR - "A poster claiming to be a games journalist for "a Playstation magazine in the UK" (presumably PSM3) has professed, on the GTA Forums, to having privileged information about the game."
i really really really hope this is true
Yea, if that was true I would literally buy 20 copies of that game. I mean...How cool would THIS be??? "The cops will use smoke and tear gas, dogs, riot gear and rams to knock down the doors of buildings you are hiding in. "
Can you give one of those copies to me? In re: article, I noticed that customizable cars weren't mentioned, I am disappointed. Edit: you'd think I didn't read the article, but I see in the first bullet they mentioned upgrading; I only fixated on the gas thing on the first readthrough. I'm looking for at least SA customization level.
don''t know if its true cause they say that R* is still thinking about of you could hurt the animals but the cops are gonna use dogs sowhat they can hurt us but we can't hurt them back and to everyone sayin it can't be bigger than liberty city or it got to be on multiple dics for 360 world size doesn't mean that much sound is the biggest space consumer and MS has a new bigger disc if its on multiple discs then the world gonna be on both and the story and cutscenes are split
If this is true... OH MY GOD. No words can describe how i'm feeling for this game. GTA:IV got me screaming, this game... I shall not write anymore as my chosen words aren't good enough to describe what this game will hopefully be.
You're saying you're willing to blow $1200 on GTAV?
"Cannoing, ab-saling, rock climbing, base jumping, ski diving. More to be confirmed. " "The cops will use smoke and tear gas, dogs, riot gear and rams to knock down the doors of buildings you are hiding in. " " Torrential rain fall and sunshine and even tremors will appear in the game. " HOLY F'n SHAT !!! If this is true this will be the best GTA possibly best game I will ever play in my life. Like wtf this has to fake.. too good to be true. I need this game today And I think they mean abseiling instead if "ab-sailing " I can see abseiling off a building in a mission :D But I have a feeling this isnt really true
This news post gonna reach 2000 degrees! It's a great read with only minor spoilers and only 1 minor-ish story spoiler in there. I imagine R* might be a bit upset for so much info being leaked in 1 go and so soon. But in the end the more people getting excited for GTAV the better, like they need the hype and anticipation, I mean its GTA for %^&$ sake. lastly I'd just like to say, OH MY GAWD! When it comes to R* and open world games this song springs to mind: http://www.youtube.com/watc... edit: haha, dont want to use up my last bubble in this epic news post, @ GoldenPheasant regarding the fuel, would be so epic to be in a massive cop chase and have to switch vehicles due to gas running out.
:( R* HAS TO RELEASE IT THIS MONTH ^^
or do a Blizzard and hold onto it as long as it takes to make it perfect!
What about AGENT??? Come on Rock* it wouldn't hurt to show a LITTLE info :\
If GTA V will be as much fun as SA was, I wouldn't mind if they pushed Agent back to next gen if it means they can 100% focus on perfecting GTA V.
So if this is true then multiple main characters are confirmed too since the article talks about playing as a young black guy while the trailer has an older white guy. Maybe the trailers they release for the game will each focus on a character you play as or something.
oh my days sounds incredible!! hope all that is true! AMAZING would be GAME OF THE DECADE.
fuel? fuel!!!! so small, yet so important! Now just confirm nitrous...and nitrous on bikes...pretty please?
It makes the gas stations actually useful im sure nitro is included in car car upgrades I hope they have modern day upgrades.From big rims for old schools to racing rims for sports cars. Put a bit of Midnight club in there ;) I would be sad if this turns out to be fake
I really hope that this is true, too, but check this out: In the beginning, he says, they had 30 minutes of gameplay to watch and one of the points states that they watched the character ride from the center of LS into the wildness, which took him about 15 minutes of real time. So he really wants me to believe, that half of the presentation the protagonist was driving out of town? Really?
Driving 15 minutes isnt a good thing anyway. It will become very tedious.
Well he explore the world for 30min... I mean the info are pretty Realistic and all this better be on gta v
How come no one pointed out that if it's true the world is that big, how many discs will it be on the 360? Let's not forget that GTA IV had to have content cut out of the 360 version (although it stayed in the PS3 and PC versions). So how is it that this GTA V is going to be vastly bigger in content than GTA IV (and really, 15 minutes of driving means the game world is almost comparable to Just Cause 2) yet still manage open-world freedom within the space of one DVD? I smell BS.
So is this set in SA universe ir just one city which is bigger as Los Santos? I hope we get the Vegas looking city that was in SA other than that I think RS learned a lot from gta 4 so they will look for a mixture if craziness and seriousness
According to Rockstar, Los Santos is the only city and from their description, the map will not resemble the one from SA much like GTA4's map differed from GTA3's.
ROUGE GAME JOURNALIST that sounds like an awesome job
Lipstick games? Seriously though, Rogue Game Journalist does have a nice ring to it. Sort of covert and sinister, lol.
OH MAN, taking people as hostage? Even if HALF of this stuff is true, especially the juicy stuff I'm 10x more excited
If this is not true...then Rockstar should read our reactions to this rumor and start adding most of that to the game :)
dam all that sounds very realistic like they truly got some insider information. Wow i'm looking forward to GTAV!! unfortunately i will have to wait 8 months for the PC version..... :(
Rockstar, "Here take my Money just give me this game Now! please" -Can't wait, This is going to be Awesome.

I give you an "E" for effort.... bubbs up..
@ Domer25 LoL.. thanks player.. This and Bioshock Infinite are all I need for 2012 to be Awesome.. So far they are both Day One buys for me.. I just hope this is coming out early..
As I've said before how could they make Los Santos bigger when in GTA SA it was an average size. Then the fact that apparently it has forrests and mountains in it when Los Santos never had them, they were mostly away from LS near San Firero especialy that big ass moutain with the BMX and Parachute at the top. You can't just change the place around, fair enough more buildings since they place would have developed for 20 years but you can't place in mountains and grow forrests when they wern't there before.....even making the city huge when as I;ve said was average sized seems strange. If these changes make Los Santos look completely differen't then it's not really Los Santos is it. I would of rather had them working on the game longer and give us the other two cities aswell I swear to god Rockstar better not make the two cities as DLC. I would never forgive them for doing that. "Cars can be upgraded/repaired and it has been considered to have a car have fuel forcing the player to fill her up. " Too far with the realism Rockstar......too far
What makes you think its going to look like GTA san andreas. GTA 4 didnt look like GTA 3. " To far with realism" Im glad they are taking the more realistic route. I loved GTA 4 and it was my favorite. But the reason i liked San andreas almost as much was the elements of freedome, Ie go anywere via anymode of trasportation, Huge customisation, Dress like anyone, Be fat, Thin, Muscley and drive anything thing, From a beaten up old car, to a rally car to a super car. Alot of that wasnt in GTA IV so if they are combining the two then i simply can not wait.
"I loved GTA 4 and it was my favorite." You in the very small bunch of people GTA 4 looked differen't because there was a massive time difference, they added buildings expanding on things but how can you add a mountain or grow a forrest in 20 years. You can't make a city that big in that length of time. It would take even longer if it's as big as the guy says it is.
GTA4 was my favorite, too. Seems like the people who like GTA4 the most like that it was the most realistic. That's why I liked it the most. The driving was especially awesome.
same here. gta 4 was my favorite too. I liked sa but i feel saints row has become the go-to for over the top craziness. I enjoy the realistic feel over the old gtas. Rockstar should stick with the gta4 vibe and let saints row focus on the insane open-world
I don't get where you're coming from. Liberty City in 4 was a lot different to 3. They have said repeatedly it's a new universe.
well I don't know... if Los santos grew naturally as a city would it not take over land that was mostly the low level plants and push the city closer to the trees and mountains? I mean if we go by the rumor that the map is 2.5 times bigger, if los Santos had doubled in size I think that would put it quite close to the mountain ranges. There are still farming fields and the wind farm which we have seen in the trailer. We have no idea how much space they take up. there was the big mountain range with the tunnel and major road going round it, that was different to the one with the bmx though. it could be that mountain we see in the trailer.
"You can't just change the place around" Yeah, you actually can, because it's a video game. And if they found that the game would be more fun if the terrain was different, then I'll side with them. If you want to play San Andreas, fire it up and play it, but I want to play V.
What the hell are you talking about? Liberty City in GTA IV was nothing like Liberty City in GTA III. Rockstar can do whatever they want with their game.
Yup its called a re-imaginning. They take the same name but redo it in a new form so that it feels fresh.
As I've said multiple times, Los Santos in GTA V is not the same Los Santos as in San Andreas, they are completely different cities in quite possibly completely different universe, same with Liberty City in GTA III and GTA IV. They have a creative license in that sense, as do not need to, nor are they trying, to make the world as it was in San Andreas. Los Santos in GTA V is not a part of San Andreas from San Andreas, if you understand what I mean, and therefore they do not need to have all of the cities, all of the locations and generally everything the same as it was in GTA San Andreas. It's called a re imagining, not a direct sequel.
They might be diffrent but I saw alot of cars from IV
The funniest thing with this comment is that first he's complaining that R* can't do a complete revision to LS and move things around because it wouldn't be possible in real life, and in the next sentence he's complaining about too much realism. LOL! And btw, GTA 3 and IV had a completely different layout too, and you would know that if you had actually played the games. The bottom line is, R* can do whatever they damn well please with Los Santos, because it's their game and their city.
Nice haven't played GTA since#3.
"You still have a cell-phone but only people you will meet in the game will call you to ask you to do a mission or to ask you to do something else before the mission." Oh come on Rockstar was there any need. Your still going to get people rining you up because it's GTA you meet people all the time. <sigh> "No children NPC at all. Ever.".....thanks pollitical correctness. Rockstar have build worlds with the most realism yet it looks odd when you see no children, no mothers walking there children to school, no fathers playing football with there son in the park etc....am I saying I want to kill them....that's a totaly differen't topic but it's a shame it would of added more realism. "One mission involves breaking out a very familiar GTA icon from a previous game..." CJ or Sweet
It could be Ken Rosenburg, He was in nearly every GTA up until Gta IV
Oh yea. I agree. haha the political correctness comment was EXACTLY what I was thinking when I first read that. We can bang hookers, but no animals or kids are in the game. Pigeons are annoying to shoot at. I wanna see some HURT!!! lol
Yet we have films where we see children get killed and other f*cked up crap happen to them, Rambo 4 for example when there being tossed into fires and shot to death.
Oh yeah, because YouTube really wants hundreds of videos of people simulating buttsecks on a corpse of a kid you stabbed to death. WTF is wrong with you? Is this what gamers have reverted to? The only thing you would do to the kid is shoot them for fun or t-bag them. That kind of retarded stuff is what Saints Row is for...but even then Volition said they weren't going that far.
finally gas stations will be used instead of just being there in the background
If that guy's a writer for a professional magazine, I've no idea how. I vote no: a professional writer's forum post wouldn't be littered with grammatical no-nos.
It did seem very specific though. And technically he wasn't paid for that post nor was there an editor.
Doesn't seem plausible to me. The ideas are great - and I HOPE that they're true - but a pro journalist wouldn't compromise his relationship with the magazine, PR companies and publishers with a stunt like this. Unless he's literally just been fired, that is. EDIT: Also, what does the writer in question stand to gain from this? Releasing the details as an exclusive would mean that he'd get paid for it as well. Doesn't ring true.
Great. Bringg it on
Please be true...
Ehhh, not buying this guy as a professional. Anyone can guess work this stuff, my mate and I talked about most of these ideas in work since the trailer was released. No one would take the risk of revealing R* information about one of their games, R* are far too secret about it.
If any of this stuff is true, it will be the best game ever. Hell, just give me half of what was on that list. The barricading of doors sounds nice! So does the gas trail behind vehicles.
best game ver....just no....if a grand theft auto game became the greatest experience gaming has to offer than I will quit gaming instantaneously... thankfully it will never be.
He only said that because it would be the best game ever TO HIM. The rest of what he says shows that. Greatest experience gaming has to offer can't be measured, because people are individualistic. It's ALL preference. Taking his comment so literally isn't right. I can see why you only have one bubble.
@Pyscho_Mantis Obviously too young to have played 3, Vice City & SA. Because they are the definition of single player at it's best/most fun.
Barricading sounds nice but how practical is that in an open-world game? I mean, doesn't that mean that you can move any object in the game world? Where are the consoles getting all this extra RAM from to do stuff like this? No one thinks that some of that stuff is a little over the top? I mean, 100s of NPCs on screen at one time each with their own behavioral, Euphoria driven routines, cars, destructible environments and customizable vehicles? I'm not buying it. We'll probably get a much more tamed version of that stuff but right now all this speculation is a little bogus.
OMFG. If this is true then I ant to be in a coma until 2 weeks before the release of GTA V because the wait for it might actually kill me
The only game I know that got away to shoot children was Deus Ex Invisible War!!! Shoot them like there adult counterparts. GTA 5 better have more to do after the game lol!!!
If it is true, it sounds all good. the only thing and I mean only thing I wish they would add that Saints Row. A garage that saves your cars that you can load whenever you want it. If you wreck your car then when you load it it will be all smashed up and you would need to repair it first etc. It just use to really annoy me finding a really really rare car and then if you took it out and lets say half way through a mission it got destroyed if the game saved once the mission was finished that was it, you lost it from your garage. thats the only thing I wish they would add.
All GREAT things if true. Bit sceptical about having to fuel your car... But they might pull it off well.
I really hope this is true, I'm so excited for some offical info on this, and i do hope the 'guy you break out' is CJ, would be awesome to see him in the game again, san adreas = best GTA to date. question though will the map be completely different to the original SA, would like to revisit old locations
JESUS CHRIST THIS WOULD BE SO AWESOME!
Wow, hope these are all true, sounds awesome
There's no way that the city alone is four times Liberty City from GTA IV unless the game comes on two discs (for 360) or is PS3 exclusive (which is very doubtful). I know they've an extra gig to play with since MS increased the size of the 360 disc with the XGD3 format but come on! I well believe everything else mentioned could be possible. A map two times the size of Liberty City in GTA IV including countryside would be big enough. At max three times bigger overall but even if he did see the game, maybe he miscalculated or is just exaggerating. I think this game will release in 8 months time so we'll know soon enough.
