    was expecting more with their "things will be different" teasing ... the setting is essentially the same again

    but the graphics are quite good for an open + big world

    and this time you are a russian (remember the sausage factory mission in gta2 ?)... which means next GTA you are asian


    well i guess we can be happy they didn't place it in the 1940 , fighting against nazis terrorist zombies together with car-pimping aliens who just happen to look like hot girls with a hatred for clothing

    I'm a little disappointed actually. The character model looks quite poor, but the car looked sweet.

    It'll be awesome no doubt, but I was hoping for more than a minute of footage.

    I thought it looked pretty good, GTA has never looked amazing next to other games. San Andreas looked a lot better than Vice City, but still worse than many other games released that year.

    Looks very nice, no doubt it will play well too. Only beef - PLEASE do a bug fix this time.

    once again they've given a release date way ahead of time...I know people get pissed off by developers pushing games back, but I'd rather see a late good game, than an ontime buggy one.

    I was kind of hoping for a new location like a Chicago/St. Louis/Detriot state, but I guess Liberty City is good enough.

    I wonder if it will just be Liberty City or if they will add some more big cities.

    I'm gonna take a guess that the main character is leaving Liberty City for NYC. I know liberty city was based on NYC in previous games, but i don't remember things like the Empire State building and the Statue of Liberty being in there.

    Just a guess...

    The city shown in the trailer is Liberty City.

    I don't care if the character models aren't up to par with Gears of War, Oblivion, Resistance, whatever. Hell, I don't care if they don't change a single feature of the game. The core premise of GTA is so much fun that doing it in a bigger, brighter, prettier city is all that matters to me. Just bring it on, I can't wait.

    Yes, Liberty City was certainly shown. But like in GTA SA, there were multiple cities used, and based on this trailer and the major NYC landmarks, i think NYC is a definite possiblity for gameplay.

    Seemed simply like he was coming to a new city for redemption but will be pulled down into the mire again. Actually was pretty dissapointed with the trailer...just showed lighting effects and buildings and a Russian guy. I want to see new ways of snatching cars, jumps, weapons, etc...Pretty lame 45 sec teaser (so much of the "minute" wasn't even trailer footage)

    Liberty City IS NYC. Liberty City has always been a mockup of NYC. There could be a number of reasons the landmarks didn't appear in GTA3/LCS... most likely due to engine and hardware limitations. But now Rockstar has the hardware power to make an accurate representation of the entire NYC area.

    And check out the video. Numerous things, including signs in "Time Square" and other areas say "Liberty City" and every police car in the video says "LCPD".

    So even though it is NYC, the game still calls it Liberty City.

    I just wonder if it is safe to assume that we'll be making another trip to Vice City and San Andreas in the future? :D Being from SoCal, I'd love to see LA and the desert with these updated graphics

    It's pretty much in line with every other trailer for every other GTA game. Infact, I'm sure the game is still being coded and it's not even to the point where they could show "Gameplay", even though this was all taken from real-time footage. If its anything like the other GTA trailers, we'll see another trailer released sometime towards the middle or end of summer that shows some actual "gameplay" and then another before the game is released.

    I'm hoping for a really different new game, 4.1 or whatever it'll be called. Stick us in Tokyo, London, Rio de Janeiro.

    I hope they do another retro 70's or 80's one again. Bloody love the soundtrack in Vice City!

    I'm not sure about GTA this time, GTA3 and Vice City where great but I was really disappointed in San Andreas. It just did not have that great feel like VC and 3 did, I just could not ever get into it like I did the other two.

    They should go back to 1960's London.

    It's ripe for a remake.

    huh? Liberty city is NYC in the GTA universe. A sugn reading LIBERTEEN, adverts for Liberty ree and the boat says Liberty City on the back. The power of the new systems lets them add some landmarks that werent in older games. The times square area was in the PS2 games.

    Yeah, I too was hoping they'd go international at some point. They've already featured the most distinctive (IMO) US cities - New York, Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas.

    Any of those you mentioned (and you could include others, Montreal, Paris, Rome, Moscow, Sydney - with extra traffic craziness in Rome of course!) would be superb. You might have to include flight travel between cities to fit them all in. Or perhaps have some kind of 'border control' as you drive between cities.;)

    I believe that it is only on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    I'd like to see a GTA based on Sydney, I think that it would be a great city to do a game one.

    I'd agree. They (to me - don't kill the opinionator!) look just like PS2/Xbox models in HD.

    To me it doesn't (yet) look nearly as good as Saints Row - though SR doesn't have the ambience, immersiveness and sense of humour that the GTA games do.
