I liked it, unlike GTA ripoffs the trailer builds a mood, a cinemasque look to the story, and shows that although it will have sandbox based gameplay like all the clones, GTA will standout with the story and in essence the motivation of why you do thing.
GTA has been great in creating storylines in their previous games, enhancing them with distinct and well done voice acting, and now with next gen graphics I can only imagine the story will feel more emersive.
I'm not even a huge GTA fan, but I'm pumped for it, should be great.
If the trailer is any indication, Rockstar will be trying to come up with a fresh storyline. I like the idea of playing as an immigrant coming to this country. And I still refuse to believe that the game will just be set in Liberty City. After creating an entire 'state' in San Andreas, I feel like if they confine the game to one city people could see it like a setback.
TLB reader Lawl has sent me quite the conspiracy theory. I emailed him back calling him crazy as usual, and told him to I need proof. Minutes later he hit me back with something I wasn't expecting to see - the image above. Where the f**k is the PS3 graphic? If you search Rockstar Games' support database, you'll only find an Xbox 360 version of GTAIV listed, not a PS3 one as well. It's been established that Grand Theft Auto IV is coming to both PlayStation 3, and the Xbox 360, but that each will have original downloadable content over time, so why wouldn't each be listed on their support page?
Has Microsoft worked its money magic yet again and stolen away another game from Sony's PS3? Well, Take Two Interactive, the publisher for the GTA series, isn't doing so well right now financially. In fact, they even postponed a financial meeting until tomorrow, where they're probably going to get a lot of shit from shareholders. That's where Lawl's theory kicks in - tomorrow is also the day that the GTAIV trailer is revealed, as well as the other half of Microsoft's big announcement - the first part of course being the not so surprising Xbox 360 Elite. Coincidence?
Thanks to Lawl on Arrogantics for the rumor tip. Has Microsoft really gained GTAIV as an exclusive title? This is obviously a huge rumor, and could be written off as simply careless site updating on Rockstar's behalf, but with the big puzzle pieces still missing in tomorrow's puzzle, it's time to play the speculation game. Your thoughts? Entirely possible? Pissed? Meh?
