Pre-orders available...That's got to be some type of record in Australia for a pre-order opening up.

Did that ever happen in Australia though?
I've never seen a pre-order open up with so little to go on.

Putting down my deposit on the PS4 JRod Edition this afternoon then.

Can't find any mention of it on gaf or reddit. Could be a bit of a scoop. What's the release board? Can you get a pic or something?

pretty sure one of the games dudes there does in fact have a beardy neck. he's easy to pick out amongst the hipsters.

dont intend on heading over there anytime in the near future but if i do ill take a snap. probably shouldve thought to when i saw it, however I was locked in a singleminded trance to hurry the fuck home to play arkham city (ohmygodholyshitwhatagame)

Rockstar have only stated March 2012 is the release data for Max Payne 3 but no date has been set yet. I think we are learning a valuable lesson that JB Hi-Fi is full of shit

I would be highly suprised if Rockstar release their two key titles for 2012 so closely together.

Media coverage? For GTA? They could advertise it on release day only and it would still outsell everything.

wouldnt surprise me. theyre totally different games. i'd imagine different departments too. could give them a massive boost in funds to work on their next game. who knows.

so is GTA5 using a new engine btw?

you know, i was thinking, why the hell does BDO advertise so much when they sell out on first day of release every year. seems like a waste of money.

Off topic, but the head of BDO said himself the festivals are dying, and the whole reason for Kanye and whoever else it was not playing the Perth and SA gigs were because they couldn't sell enough tickets, so had to change venue.

Activision would not release CODMW5 a month or 2 after CODMW4, would they? It's a similar way of thinking.

Correct, the games aren't the same titles, but they utilise the same marketing/pr/sales/logisitcs teams that would release both titles. It's well documented that Rock Star depend heavily on the GTA franchise, and you've mentioned it too, so I don't think they would release it so closely to another flagship title so as to canabalise each other's sales and not give it their full marketing and pr support.

That's my take on it anyway.

It will be interesting though to see what date they end up with releasing this year, they would more than likely want to avoid the yearly COD release which is towards the end of the year, so I reckon about July/August.

Both games are published by Rockstar but developed by different studios. Releasing them at the same time is a stupid idea as it forces some consumers to choose one game over the another. If you split your releases you have a chance of getting that same person to buy both of your games. I think Whitey is right, I predict an august/september release or march 2013.

They haven't leaked anything on the engine but the video looks the same as RAGE which has been used for GTA4, Red dead redemption and Max Payne 3

Quote:

Hello!

I am a friend of someone who recently got sacked from RockStar North for general misconduct. Because one contract to RockStar covered everything, including secrecy, and his contractual obligaton was now removed, he was legally allowed to spill the beans on Rockstar's upcoming GTA V. And he is making damn sure everyone knows about it.

Here is the info you really want:

1. The protagonist will be one character, and one character alone. His name is (as some rumours said) Albert De Silva. He's a half hispanic man who was once part of a crime family in Vice City. He decided to settle down and have kids in Los Santos. He has one son called Kevin De Silva who is your stereotypical CoD player. He's lazy, useless and shouts racial abuse online and is really into FPS games. Kevin does admire his Dad though.

2. Multiplayer will hold 32 people on the Xbox and PS3. I wasn't told how many were able to be on the PC. Just like in RDR, players will be able to form Gangs. These gangs are not ranked through XP anymore, but via Reputation. Instead of gang hideouts, you can do jobs that range from robbing a launderette to breaking into a military base and stealing state-of-the-art weaponary. The Gang leader has much more control over his or her gang by being able to rank members of their gang and setting more specific objectives to specific members of their gang. Gangs can have their own terratory but this only applies to areas inside the city of Los Santos.

3. The map is about 5x as large as the GTA IV map and the City of Los Santos takes up just under half of this area (so it's a bit bigger than 2 GTA IV Liberty Cities).

4. The map is (like most GTAs) seperated into three different sections. 4. Planes are flyable, they range from World War 2 fighter planes to Private Jets.

5. Cars and guns are customisable to an extent, for example, you can cusomise a gun to have a supressor on it and you can install nitrous into cars.

Here's some stuff you might like:

1. The protagonist is the "rich guy" from the GTA V debut trailer. You get to learn more about this man in the second when he talks about his troubles. You only see the protagonist twice in the trailer. First time is the side of his face and second time is when he is driving a Deceptor (Audi R. The people robbing the jewellery store are just with the protagonist. He is driving the van ready to get away.

2. Gunfights are more realistic. When you are shooting a gun out of a window of a car, depending on how fast it's going you will have troubles aiming due to shaking cameras.

3. The game is due in May 2013. A more specific date has not been decided because the game is still needing 6 months to be fully developed. They will have a playable demo at E3.

4. Police chases are now way more than either running or driving. Depending on how wanted you are, police may bring out riot shields and flash bangs.

5. When someone reaches 4 star wanted level, there will be a radio warning on some stations.

6. Radio stations now do traffic reports that are actually correct. So if you don't know what route to take, you can check the traffic reports on your phone or the radio.

7. The in-game TV now has many more channels

8. The protagonist DOES NOT die unlike in the last two Rockstar games.

9. The underworld actually has a working economy that you can contribute too by buying and selling drugs, weapons and illegal cars in single player.

10. The protagonist can take drugs which will have some effects. But smoking weed on the streetwalk will lead to getting a one star wanted level.

11. Police cars will go after you if you're obviousely breaking the speed limit. Having high speed crashes will also damage your health.

Wanted levels:

1 star - police follow you on foot and try to make an arrest. No sirens, no car chases (unless you are speeding).

2 star - police will still attempt to make an arrest. If a weapon is drawn then the police will begin opening fire. Police will use stun guns if a weapon is not drawn.

3 star - Chases begin and the police don't care how they stop you, they just want to do it.

4 star - road traps, radio stations and much more hostile police.Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 24 in-game hours for someone matching your description.

5 star - shoot to kill, arrest only if it's made very possible. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 48 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Few missions become unavailable if you are wanted.

6 star - military vehicles come after you. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 72 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Some missions become unavailable if you are wanted.

I wouldn't say all. There was stuff like this that popped up for both San Andreas and GTA4, yet a bunch of it was almost spot on. Take it all with a grain of salt but I wouldn't be surprised if some of it is accurate.

Maybe not ever but they were quite good. I actually understood what they were saying in Serbian as well which half the time was an absolute crack up. It's a real shame that so many people missed out on those snippets.
