Kinda shocked that anyone would accuse that screen of being a bullshot. I see nothing particularly impressive about it.

I fucking love that the GTA V magazine article itself has (had) an OT. Years before I finally gave in and became a GTA fanboy, I was in awe at how much hype it generated, more than any other game. I remember there was some high profile poll somewhere on "Which game are you most excited about this holiday season?" and it was the year San Andreas, Halo 2, MGS3, Half Life 2 and Metroid Prime 2 came out. I would have bet my balls that Halo 2 was going to win, or maybe MGS3. San Andreas crushed them all by far and I was a tad incredulous. I think I felt then what a lot of members of a certain political party are feeling today. I knew GTA was huge, but not that goddamn huge.

The only thing that concerns me about that is LA is dark at night not really blue. It's almost a blackish blue.
Judging by Collateral, yeah.
This looks like dawn (ofcourse i'm not in the US, but you live in LA, IIRC)
Guess they could have dropped the RDR style horizon clouds and gone back to GTA4 style as they might not look so good when flying. We'll see.



GTA4's skyboxes were horrible.

This is gonna be amazing, a year's worth of speculation and guessing will either result in satisfaction or surprise, I'm guessing we'll be surprised.

ADDED to FAQ: The print version officially arrives at newsstands on Friday, November 16th.

It could be dawn but so far the night screenshots are worrisome. It looks much better during the day.
And I don't live there but am there often.

It could be dawn but even GTA IV was too bright/too blue (then again I don't know NYC well).

well perhaps they are sacrificing realism for visibility.

It's about time I get to return to San Andreas. Proper numbered sequel to the best GTA game!!! Hypest Hype is in the house.

I better be able to slit hookers throats in this game too.

And so it begins.

edit: just a heads up for anyone looking to play some GTA to help tide them over, GTA IV complete will be only $14.99 for Black Friday at Best Buy. Will probably be similarly discounted at other places. Pretty sure it's the console version, though. PC duders will be able to get it for like a quarter on some Steam sale during the holidays I'm sure :lol

75% off for the GTA IV trilogy on Steam- $7.49! But I've just been replaying San Andreas to prepare for the hype- it's insane how vast this game still is...

Wow, that's a fantastic deal.

And yeah, I plan on playing San Andreas next after I finish the GTA IV episodes. Sort of hoping for a sale first, even though it'll only be like a $10 difference :lol

Sort of off-topic, but have there been any mentions of Vice City or San Andreas hitting the PSN store anytime soon?
