i really really really hope this is true

Shaman2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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. "

mindedone2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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.

paydayp2569d ago

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

irepbtown2569d ago

If this is true...

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.

AEtherbane2569d ago

You're saying you're willing to blow $1200 on GTAV?

Dee_912569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

"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. "

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

Perjoss2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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:

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.

Perjoss2569d ago

or do a Blizzard and hold onto it as long as it takes to make it perfect!

TripleAAARating2569d ago

What about AGENT???

Come on Rock* it wouldn't hurt to show a LITTLE info :\

Wintersun6162569d ago

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.

JaredH2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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.

StraightPath2569d ago

oh my days sounds incredible!! hope all that is true! AMAZING would be GAME OF THE DECADE.

GoldenPheasant2569d ago

fuel? fuel!!!! so small, yet so important! Now just confirm nitrous...and nitrous on bikes...pretty please?

Dee_912569d ago

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

BabyCarlos2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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?

gaden_malak2569d ago

Driving 15 minutes isnt a good thing anyway. It will become very tedious.

Grip2569d ago

Well he explore the world for 30min... I mean the info are pretty Realistic and all this better be on gta v

vortis2569d ago

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.

showtimefolks2569d ago

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

Elwenil2569d ago

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.

MsclMexican2569d ago


that sounds like an awesome job

Elwenil2569d ago

Lipstick games?

Seriously though, Rogue Game Journalist does have a nice ring to it. Sort of covert and sinister, lol.

AliTheBrit4202569d ago

OH MAN, taking people as hostage?

Even if HALF of this stuff is true, especially the juicy stuff I'm 10x more excited

RioKing2569d ago

If this is not true...then Rockstar should read our reactions to this rumor and start adding most of that to the game :)

ATi_Elite2569d ago

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..... :(

Crazyglues2568d ago (Edited 2568d ago )

Rockstar, "Here take my Money just give me this game Now! please"

-Can't wait, This is going to be Awesome. RockStar FTW..

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

omi25p2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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.

TheBlackMask2569d ago

"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.

Me-Time2569d ago

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.

bronxsta2569d ago

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

Pintheshadows2569d ago

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.

koh2569d ago

"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.

clevernickname2569d ago

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.

pr0digyZA2569d ago

Yup its called a re-imaginning. They take the same name but redo it in a new form so that it feels fresh.

TheOtherTheoG2569d ago

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.

gedapeleda2569d ago

They might be diffrent but I saw alot of cars from IV

Wintersun6162569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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.

WhiteLightning2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

"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 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

omi25p2569d ago

It could be Ken Rosenburg, He was in nearly every GTA up until Gta IV

Me-Time2569d ago (Edited 2569d ago )

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

TheBlackMask2569d ago

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.

vortis2569d ago

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.

NYC_Gamer2569d ago

finally gas stations will be used instead of just being there in the background
