From Kikizo`s third GTA IV preview 23.01.08.

Kikizo:

We've made an approximate estimation of Liberty City 2008 based on what we scribbled down when we saw it:

When we showed Rockstar a printout of a still from the recent trailer taken by a fan, which appears to show part of the Liberty City map circled in red, they could only remark, "My God!". The professional-level investigative work carried out by the GTA fan community never ceases to impress. For the record, the Rockstar staff were pretty sure that what we see in that shot probably "could be" the map but we were all too scared to declare it 100%. It seems pretty obvious though, judging by what we now know is the bona fide map.



Finally the map is confirmed:)

Ya know... that could very well be it. wow.gif

Especially when you look at the real NYC map. That's kinda/sorta how it is, or at least enough to think that might be it.

Good find.

Woahz.

Hm. Could be. I dun think that's the entire thing, though. There seems to be chunks of other islands coming off the sides. And those two little islands in the middle... Eh. What could those be? Too small to be boroughs.

One of the middle ones is surely the Statue Of Happiness

The only other thing I could think of, is that it might be some sort of radar?
Would a police boat have radar?

Resembles a map much better though.

Seems pretty much like it. If I remember correctly someone who saw the map at a preview described it almost like that, only with the left side (Jersey / Alderney?) not viewable. If he was to the right of the map, it seems like it won't show up - pretty much as we see in this boat...

Well, if that is that map....

It looks really waterlogged.

:-O I thought it would all be on one big island with a few little islands on the side. >.>

The ones in the middle could be Roosevelt and Randall Island's, Liberty Island(where the statue of Liberty is) is more close to Jersey then New york.
So I don't think The Statue of Happines is one of the middle island's.

Since it's a police vehicle, they probably have in-built trackers in them so it's very likely. Nice find. icon14.gif

I won't get my hopes up...

Rockstars reaction is either:
"Omg! They found it!!! They freaking found it!!!!"

or...

"Haha, look... They're honestly thinking the dashboard on some random boat is actually the map..."


My guess is... The last...

Yeah but in real life it's more closer to Jersey than Manhattan, that leads me to believe that The Statue of Happines is more closer to Alderney than Algonquin in IV.

WOW great find IF it is the map that would be algonquin,bohan on the top,broker on the right and a lil bit of dukes merged on the bottom of broker.

that may not be a carbon copy of NY but it looks perfect for a video game version,great find.
