The main character is called Claude Speed (although this is never mentioned in the game). Tommy Vercetti was only the main character in Vice City and doesn't feature personally in either GTA3 or San Andreas.

Please choose the most appropriate forum in future - Cheats and Trick isn't really the right place to ask about things like this.

I know your new but use common sense, GTA 3 is set in 2000, Vice City is 1986, Tommy would be much older looking than Cluade

Yeah Claude Speed is not Tommy Vercetti...
My friend tried to tell me that so I kicked him in the ass and handed
him the GTA2 game and told him to watch the intro and read the
credits...
Claude Speed is like 20-30 in GTA3...Tommy is like 50-60 during the
time GTA3 takes place(2000)...

Thats one of the funniest rumours i've heard. Another reason it can't be true is the fact that tommy used to work for the forelli's but claude works for the leones mafia families do not accept people who have worked for a rival family.

Also let's not forget that Claude is Caucasian and Tommy Vercetti is Italian.

Also if you want to start an arguement about that fact I refer you to the 'Ciprian's Cheaufer' where Joey says "He aint Italian."

Ha ha, I did my homework. You can't argue with me. Eat it bitches!

it's common sense that Claude is not Tommy. Claude was called fido back at the time GTA3 lauched because of Maria. Maria said: "Common Fido let's get to a friend of mine blah blah blah..." and Tommy worked with the forellis back then. So when GTA3 takes place in 2001, Tommy owns Vice City, or something along that line.

I know this is off topic but:


GTA3 was in 2000?! bbq.gif

Woah! San Andreas and Vice City makes more sence now!

In the Countryside in San Andreas, I was thinkin' "Why is "Claude" going to Liberty with Catalina? I thought they were eneimes!"

And in Vice City, Donald Love was in the limo with Tommy and Avery, I thought "So Donald didn't dissapear after all"

But, woah!

GTA3 = 2000
Vice City = 1986
San Andreas = 1992

Vice City = 1986
San Andreas = 1992
GTA3 = 2000

You imply that there will be one some day?

As far as I know, GTA3 was set in the time it was released.

My Cousin works at gamestop and he told me that the game was based in 1993
AND I HAVE EVDEINCE

Exibit A: On the radio station flashback fm about mid-show a radio personality says "Your radio dial is in the 90's but your head is in the 70's and 80's" - that means that it had to be between the years of 1992 and 1999 because we know it happened after GTA SA.

Exibit B: On the same radio station the same personality starts raving about Compact Discs or CDs which became mainstream in 1993

Exibit C: On the El Burro mission "Turismo" El Burro Says to Claude over the payphone "You are new in Liberty, but already you are gaining a reputation on the streets."

Exibit D: CJ's Relationship with Catalina was very short and she is crazy to say the least. So I really doubt their relationship could last from 1991 to 2000 -9 years.


Please reply and tell me
if you think this is reasonable.

San Andreas is set on 1992 and GTA3 is set on 2001, not 1993.

1) That is a retro radio, fromt he 90's. I know it, it's my favourite.
2) So? We still talk about CDs today.
3) Good, that's correct. But what does it has to be with the date?
4) That's correct too. Nine years. DO you think you plan a heist like that in one year? And they spent some time together too.

I miss these forums. biggrin.gif

A rebuttal in favor of Mike...

I had always assumed it was 1999-2001 but Mike's clues (one in particular) do seem to point out otherwise:

1)More of a general clue, but it does rule out that the date is later than 1999.
2)Another more general clue, but it is true that nobody has "raved" about CD's for a good ten years.
3)Unless you want to make a stretch and assume that Claude and Catalina planned the heist OUTSIDE of Vice City, it would seem that it couldn't be set much longer after GTA:SA.
4 and MOST IMPORTANT)There's no way Catalina could maintain a 9-10 year relationship with ANYONE--I never thought of that one, and for the series to maintain any kind of consistency with its characters, it could not be taking place that long after they got together in GTA:SA.

So what some people are saying is, Rockstar made a game set in 1993, than one in 1986, than another one in 1992? So the first one is set one year after the latest one? Doesn't make sense.

P.S. Can someone please tell me who you blow up in that mission where you rig a car with a bomb and park it at the restaurant?

replying to your ps.. you mean the guy in Toni's mission? you want the name or his status? his name is Mike Lips (...Last Lunch is the rest of the mission name) and his status seems to be the Don of the Forelli brothers, judging by what Toni tells you about him i think, i can't exactly remember the mission and its intro scene....... and 'the restaurant' is marcos bistro in st. marks smile.gif

With the flashback fm thing, being stuck in the 90's is refering to "95.5 FM"- The 90's dial. It's a pun, isn't it?

R* doesn't seem to pay much attention to their timeline, which makes dating these things very hard.
IF SA was around 92/93, then Claude and Catalina were together for 7 or 8 years before finally making it to Liberty, and then she decided that he wasn't good enough. It doesn't make sense at all, but everything else in the game seems 99 -01 timeish.
Now seeing Tony Ciiprano lose half his age and half his weight 3 years before GTAIII, I can only assume R*doesn't really care for an exact timeline.

Okay,GTA III's set in 2001.There's no if ands or buts about it.First,R* has said many times since LCS was shown that GTA III was set in 2001.Second,in GTA III you kill Don Salvatori,in Liberty City Stories,which is set in 1998, he is very much.

You are making the assumption that there was very little time between Catalina shooting Claude and the Staunton Bridge incident.

Think about it, recovering from two point blank gunshot wounds, that would take a few months. Being in prison, though you can assume that he wasn't in prison for very long since he's still wearing an orange jumpsuit which is only worn for the first year or so of prison. Not to mention that he knows 8Ball before the game even starts, suggesting that they were friends in prison.

Also a few people have mentioned that Claude and Catalina wouldn't have lasted that long. There was never and love involved on Catalina's part, she was using him and when he outlived his usefulness she tried to kill him. I mean you don't get ties in the Cartel when you first get to Liberty City, you gotta work your way up.

As for the Toni Cipriani thing, I have no freaking idea. There's a whole lot of plot holes there since Salvatore talks like he's known Toni's parents for years yet LCS has Toni just coming to Liberty City. Of course, LCS isn't being developed by Rockstar North is it, they're marketing it aren't they?
