I don't know if any of you have been checking out Rockstars website but the trailer is coming out this Thursday at 6pm est. The last few days they have been running promos on FX at 1am central and recently sent out a letter to subscribers which had a banner that read 'Things will be different'

Just a video of the countdown they've been playing on TV

[YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oMheyLXhws"]The Most Worthless Video Ever[/YOUTUBE]

And a picture of the banner subscribers got

What do you all think about the catch phrase 'Things will be different'? And what do you think about the game in general?

For what platforms will it be available? PC's out of doubt as well as PS3 and Xbox360 - but will there still be a version for the PS2?

Yeah, my time isn't the precious and that was a huge, huge waste of it. It's like one of those pornos where it ends before anything good happens. <_<

I was just showing what they showed on TV. They actually paid FX for a spot on TV for that useless video. I didn't post it but I found it on YT from another forum. :|

I don't think they're making it for PS2. Just PS3, XBOX 360 and probably the PC.

dear god I hope not. One of the great things about GTA was the standalone story and not needing any online crap. I think they should have an online mode, or perhaps when you beat the game you can get online or something, but having the whole game online would really piss me off.

I was watching the countdown on FX a few days ago, and was confused, for a good amount of time before I noticed the Rockstar logo. As for it being different, maybe it takes place in space or something.

Things will be different?

Maybe a new city (something other than Liberty, Vice, and San Andreas)?
Maybe a story line with multiple endings/events based on how you play?
Multiple characters, or more freedom in creating your character?
Or perhaps there will be Zombies! And new weapons like a cricket mallet! Don't forget to save your mum and kill Phil (sorry, phil)! Can you guess what I've just been watching?

^ Do you seriously think a mod project would buy TV air time???

gta has been online for awhile now.

MTA is ok, but it's really rather boring. The maps are obviously miles too big for what you're doing and there really aren't enough players to make it worthwhile. I first party online mode should change all that.

See now? Thread about an upcoming trailer for a game and you tell everybody a mod to the predecessor is already available...

no, and i don't know where you're coming from with that. i didn't say anything about them buying tv ad time.
While you didn't say anything about TV ad time, it was a nice way to tell you about a craptastic post...

except that's a mod, not from rockstar.
QED

you could've just said, "i think your post is stupid and irrelevant", instead of beating around the bush. i wouldn't have taken it to heart.:)
