Hey Bluespot. You should edit your original post to include the maps that some members made in this thread. They might not all be accurate but it would be cool to have all this stuff in one spot.

No, i belive it`s from person to person what they think it looks like, some people think it looks like a map and some think it looks like controllers or ect...

Just thought I'd point something out that I don't believe anyone's seen.

user posted image

(can't zoom in, all I have is MS Paint)

It's exactly the same as what you've shown, only the bottom right corner isn't blocked by anything.

I, personally, don't think it's a map. For starters, I don't see why they would have two maps on the boat. Wouldn't one suffice? And... well, they just don't look like landmasses to me. It's possible, but I highly doubt it. And do you really think Rockstar would make it this easy? I'm sure they checked for things like this before releasing the trailer, so that nothing would be spoiled.

You've got to think, it took a long time for someone to find it, and god-knows how many frame by frame previews missed it.

The argument that the map could just be a placeholder texture doesn't make sense. To the left of the smaller map you can see what looks like navigational instruments and there are all sorts of other modeled objects that don't look out of place. If this is just a placeholder then why is the rest of the interior of the boat so detailed. Also, what are the odds that a random placeholder texture would look like a map, show up in a place you expect a map, and just so happen to resemble the geographic area Rockstar is basing the map off of? It doesn't make sense for it not to be a map. All the evidence points to this being the map.

Just because Rockstar is a major developer with millions of dollars doesn't mean they don't make mistakes. It's possible they could have missed this. It went unnoticed by the entire community for a month so I don't see what's so far-fetched about the idea that the map is hidden in the trailer.

I have only come up with two possibilities: Either Rockstar is purposefully trying to throw us off by including a fake map in the trailer, or this is the real map. The only purpose I see of including a fake map would be to spark interest. The idea that Bluespot works for Rockstar and only pointed this out to get people thrown off and hyped about the game is entertaining, but if it were true then I doubt he would continue to post in the topic and actually respond to the rumors directly.

I'm saying or did say, it COULD also be some generic control panel doo-dad. It doesn't outright resemble a map and that's why there is so much debate over it, for one thing, anyway.

I think the fact you got a really nice blowup helped alot, without that, it maybe another story!

Amazing, simply amazing. I tell ya, I stop frame by frame to aid the laptop's memory when trying to view a trailer as an HD video file, it seems to have some issues.
I'd point out you just said you weren't shure... Shure is a brand. Sure is the word you want! haha

You could opt for a PS3, but hey! biggrin.gif

BlueSpot probably has some amazing type of Computer in order to spot that especially at the rate the boats were traveling by.


Bluespot...that cartoon made me lulz.

"It looks waterlogged..." It looked exactly like something off of Southpark. pricless.

He didn't for a really long time, than he realized we were on to him, so he started attempting to fit in as a 'normal' poster, while in reality, there are dozens of rockstar employees on high-tech computers right next to him.


Anywho, if he doesn't work for Rockstar, I can imagine Microsoft saying, "You know why else the XBOX 360 is better than the PS3? BlueSpot my friends. Bluespot made history by finding the GTA IV map, and guess what system he has. That's right, an XBOX360."

I wanted to say (in Cartman's voice) Bluespot..... You Killed Kenny!!!

Oh, now I've done it... I spoiled one of the cliffhangers

Additionally, I read your meandering thought Simseth and I still know why I quoted you as my new sig! You have some strange thought process at work
