GB : Dsogaming released a bunch of images which they claimed was the leaked GTA V map, but it turns out that it’s fake. Like anyone thought otherwise. We have some forensic analysis on those images, which show that they’re heavily modified.
thank god!! i was expecting a big map...
by the look of that map we would only get los santos and not las venturas and the others aswell
They really never mentioned anything about Las Venturas and san fierro. Rockstar mentioned only Los Santos so far so thats what im going by. Maybe they'll show up at the Spike video game awards and show us some stufff :)
They actually said only Los Santos will be available.. But still it's supposed to be really big
Still looks pretty real to me, regardless of some buggy dollar sign.
I think they have made things pretty clear. THIS is what we are getting: GRAND THEFT AUTO V Official Announcement "Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created." http://www.rockstargames.co...
Good news now whitelightning can stop crying.
'GTA V Leaked Map is Fake' You don't say!
IKR All you needed to do was read was the title to know that. People look for attention so they create simplistic things or ideas to gather that attention. Is making a false map that hard? I dont' think so, especially with the capabilities of many people out there who are very aware and interested in GTA.
Its the way of the N4G, first guy posts an article about so called 'Leaked' info, then moments later, theres another one saying its fake, and both end up being the top story. Rumors should be banned from N4G, lets just have the facts and not these websites which just fake/start rumors to gain some hits.
NOOOOOOO!!! :O -_-
Why would someone go through the trouble of faking a map?
The same reason people go through the trouble of faking orgasms?
Was that suppose to be funny?
To a 10 year old with a septic bladder i could imagine it is.
A septic bladder? That's more random than an asthmatic cat on a skateboard holding a Pepsi can. In my defence, my statement (or question) has an element of truth to it as News4geeks says: "they may find it fun, they may get a buzz from fooling people into thinking it's real" Either way, I'll get my coat....
You should start a comedy duo with dane cook is what I meant.
not really,..people fake orgasms to make you happy while whoever made the fake map just wants to punk you
"not really,..people fake orgasms to make you happy while whoever made the fake map just wants to punk you" This lol. +bubs to a few ppl. It's funny because the former has a negative effect in the long run... psht, woman. :P
That's what i'm saying. What the hell's the point of doing such a thing? To get hype? To say oh I tricked you but they never will because we have no idea he "leaked" the pics. I just don't freaking get it.
they may find it fun, they may get a buzz from fooling people into thinking it's real, nerd bragging rights... innumerable reasons really.
To gather attention, not like they could make a profit off it.
Well, yeah. I think they're a little more careful than that to allow the games map to be leaked to the public so soon.
Not really. I knew it was set in SA 2 years ago. Obviously that would be a very good and likely guess if someone where to invent a rumour. But I heard it off somebody with direct connections to their Edinburgh studio on a night out (people say stupid things when drunk). Sure, they will have been very careful - but it is impossible to 100% guarantee that it cannot be leaked. Hell, the Realtime Worlds offices had greyed out windows but one of them was smashed one saturday morning and they had translucent plastic over it for 2 working days before it was replaceed... allowing everybody walking past to see in. Pitty they were making a failed game anyway :( Obviously there are many more reasons to keep GTA5 under wraps (and RS are a lot more competent lol), but it goes to show...
"people say stupid things when drunk" Information obtained from a drunk person isn't very valid, is it?
The only reason they got away with the in-game character screen-shot is because in it#s current build GTA5 looks almost identical to GTA4. Before release however there should be a significant difference in everything and not just lighting.
Thank goodness because that map looked pretty small.
Fake right, I known this a Mod!!
"There was no doubt that the map was fake, as Rockstar would not have allowed it. But still we have some proof for you below. Image error analysis over here, shows how heavily the image has been edited. Please do not believe any GTA rumours as Rockstar will not allow it to be released on the web. Most likely whatever you see right now should be taken with a pinch of salt." Ok, yeah the chance of the map being fake is about 99.999999% (otherwise they made an epic fail with the dollar sign lol - it is programmer included and would be at an extremely low QA priority, I have seen worse fails in published games many times). But clearly gamingbolt are complete idiots if they allow such total fail to be in an article on their site. Also, yes the map looked extremely small but they could have been testing a portion of the environment - we don't know how the map format is organised. And the pause screen will be working based off the data set available to the build. (again, speculation - but that would be a sensible way for it to be programmed; especially during development) Of course I think it is fake too, I just like to be thorough - especially when it only takes common sense. "as Rockstar would not have allowed it" How exactly would they go about that? Please gain a basic understanding of what a leak is LMAO! And why it is such a big problem for developers! I for one know people who have been in their offices (after Dare 2 be Digital 2011), it would be entirely possible for them to run into a room where testing is taking place (they wouldn't be physically restrained) and take a quick snap with their Android to be uploaded to wherever they want in miliseconds (could easily pre-program that in a special camera app). It didn't happen - but it could easily happen. Their offices are not prisons, or American schools etc. "Rockstar will not allow it to be released on the web" Same again, but even more idiotic this time. The web? LOL The world governments can't even keep CP off the web - or many other extremely unscrupulous materials, how exactly would Rockstar/Take2 get a jpeg off the web? It will literally be on millions of devices in hundreds of countries, available publicly and privately - to EVERYBODY. Please learn what the internet actually is Kartik Mudgal or stop writing video game "journalism" because you obviously have no idea about technology. Good day.
gonna be balls deep
i noticed that $ was in the wrong spot when I first saw the map, but i couldnt remember if it was like that in GTA4
