At 40 seconds into the trailer, there is a guy who passes to the left of Niko (Niko's right) in the screen, it happens pretty fast because this is where we see the background changing as Niko is strutting along like a badass. Anyways, this person passing Niko seems to literally scroll by Niko; the peds motions seems too smooth for him to be walking. The camera is stationary, but compared to Niko's strut, and even other peds further off in the background, this ped seems to be moving along too smoothly to not be on some sort of wheels. Anyways, check it out, and let us know what you think.

i just saw it and it looks about 80% skatboarder

the 20% is just because of the fact that you cant see below his waist

Well apparently it was considered for SA so maybe.

I think we should be able to use anything to get away from someone, but they've taken out bikes (bicycles) haven't they? So maybe it's just a trick to arouse suspicion.

for those of you asking for picks, it's not something that can be seen in a still, you need to see it in motion.

I think he is actually, his legs aren't moving, he is going pretty fast, and his body is facing towards Niko, but he is moving away from him..

And i have never seen a skater dressed like that before, so IMO, it's no.

One of his legs seems to be moving back and up, as if he was pushing himself. And the movement does look like he's floating sideways... I'd say its possible but still very sketchy!

He's definately not walking. I'd say he's skateboarding, I doubt it'll be roller blades because we've seen those used in VC where there was a more tropic setting. Skateboards suit the urban scene more.

But what would be cooler? STEAK BOARDS. happy.gif

would be cool if there were skateboards in the game. Especially if you could do limited tricks (jump and rail slide at least).

Please say that the no bikes thing is just a rumor! I mean, bike carriers are kind of a big deal in NYC and that would make for a great side mission (like pizza delivery in VC).

I have watched it, and it does not look like he is walking normal, there is no movement in his arms, he just kind of slides away good find by the way. icon14.gif
And if you look at the other peds they walk fine, so yea it could be a skateboard but it could be just a glitch.

I got the impression he's just stopped walking but maybe there's something to it. His sort of sideways posture does resemble that of a skater.

Wouldn't be surprising as I believe it was removed from SA at the last minute (not literally).

right when it goes into the scene where the possible skater is you see the skater take a step then kinda turn his head to Niko and stop, i think it just looks like that he is moving because the camera is moving with Niko. but if not then yeah, it looks like that step he took is him pushing off the ground to roll the board, nice find, weather true or not...

In my opinion the movement is faster than only "walking", so probably he is on a skate...

Repeat many times the second 40 of trailer and you will see it.

He has to be moving. Because he's moving way too fast.

If hes standing he should move up the screen evenly with the garbage can light post or the rails thingy at the side. But hes not so he has to be doing something. Skating/Rollerblading
