CaliMex: Dont see how there is a 3 year 'rule' they have only came out with 1 'stories' game so far, and it just happened to be 3 years before GTA3, dosent really mean anything.
I am just saying but I should not have called it a rule since it is not mandatory and R* doesn't have to do that but most of the games have a setting based in a year divisible by 3. I also did say if yet I shouldn't have said definitely (I changed it now) but I think that the game with be based in the year 1983. The only game during the GTA 3 era that did not adhere to the "rule" or trend (thanks to ATK for using the word trend) was GTA Advance which is set in 2000, the year before GTA 3. If you divide 1998 by 3 you get 666. OMG, hell and stuff!
If they do have a 4 year "trend" for the next GTA then it may be based in 2004 or 2008 but then this is just pure speculation based on little info. 4 is divisible into 2004 and 2004. Just simple math.
I am just going by the first "Stories" trilogy (maybe a trilogy but I doubt it since SA is so big) game but it looks like you agree that it will take place before Vice City yet where is your reasoning? I only have so much knowledge about how R* does what they do and this is all I have to go by. Do you have anymore to go by because I would love to hear it (I am not being sarcastic here). If you don't it's understandable and the way I think it might go is understable but may or may not be true.
At ATK, there may be a trend or there may not be a trend. You are also making an assumption by saying that R* isn't going by some sort of trend when they choose settings and years for games. Some of us see that little trend that we noticed or discovered and we go by it because we are just curious and want to know. We love our GTA, can you blame us?
These games aren't that a big of deal since they are PSP games and the were (LCS) and will be (VCS) limited by the hardware. They are just to give us one slice of pizza at a time until we get the supreme pizza. This is all speculation anyhow since we are just fans who love our GTA. Speculation doesn't mean anything except that you are bored perhaps.
