Same with SA suicidal.gif

They always look better in pics but when you play them they probably have heaps of bugs and lag allot.

Really!?
I think the BETA graphics (environment, objects etc.) look sh*t compared to the Gold version.

Lol, that pic with sabre and packer..

sure its scripted

because: sabre and truck - no driver sabre is maybe attached with scripts for the pic, and look at the radar, it shows that niko is standing in the middle of the road and looks to the packer..

Actually, if you look closer you can see there's a slight color difference, so the health and armor bars were still the same as they were now. They only changed the colors so they weren't so similar.

Anyone ever notice that in Trailer 1, the peds don't use the crosswalks, they just go back and forth on one piece of sidewalk. Also, if you look closely you can see a ped fall halfway through the ground.

You forgot some things.
Firstly, um, the third trailer's beginning was scripted differently than the game - in the game, the intro is always in the middle of the night.
Secondly, in some trailers Niko is wearing clothing that is impossible to obtain at that point.

Also, if you watch the in-game TV, you will see tons of BETA stuff. There is some early footage of Live Central being called 'Bleep Central'. Also, the enterable hospital missing it's "EMERGENCY" sign.

In the beta (or not actualy betta but earlier stages of development) " STATUE OF HAPPINESS " WAS CALLED " STATUE OF FREEDOM ", there is a little CLUE about this that is really hard to catch, if u do some BOAT driving with Brucie and girls. Sometime he can ask u to take them to "STATUE OF FREEDOM", in same time in subtitles its called STATUE OF HAPPINESS

I said I wouldn't be including info like this. It either has a screen to occupy it, or it's not going in the list.
Of which you can't really, as it's only a name; and at that, is still mention in the final version.

Oh, and no need to shout wink.gif .

Probably because they wanted to include this stuff in the DLC, so when Microsoft made the offer for the DLC, they decided to remove some things from the game, and add them into the content later on (really, not fair for PS3 owners).

Yep, check out the beta Little Jacob. He looks way older than he normally does. Also, he got the beta pictures from old screenshots and trailers released (not sure where he got the wireframe image of Niko and the revolver, though).

Here's a rarity, if you missed the day it was posted.

As you can see, the health meter was orange. Thors Toys is still there to my knowledge, but I think the stuff outside may have changed a bit.

From the Special Edition's art book.

And codyr, I've never seen that image anywhere before.
It could just as easily be an edited image; if you care to tell us if there's
any sort of well known and trusted gaming site or gta fansite that has it, then
maybe I'll take that picture seriously.

Here's the article it was in.
The original topic.

Basically, a man who makes 3d models for Rockstar asked this Calvin guy to make a logo for an ingame shop.
QUOTE (From the blog...)
I've never put it on the blog site as I'm not sure that Rockstar would have approved of any images being shown pre game launch.

So, he was given a pre-release image, but didn't think Rockstar would like it if he put up an image that was not a part of the batch they released every now and then, so he waited 'til the game was out to put it up. So, it's likely to be authentic.

Found some new beta info some of you may already know some of this stuff but some of it is new to me
http://gta.wikia.com...i/Beta_Releases
Players were originally able to use buses as a form of public transportation, much like taxis.
The Coach was cut from the final version, although it can be seen briefly in the commercial for Higgins Helitours.
A mobster, Raymond Alberga, was deleted from the final version.
http://gta.wikia.com...Raymond_Alberga
Niko would originally wear fingerless gloves.
Beta weapons include a Silenced 9mm, MP5 and a Revolver.
Niko originally had a buzz cut.
Binco was originally going to be the first clothing shop in the game.
Taxis were originally black, as can be seen in Vlad Glebov's video on the website.
Little Jacob did not wear glasses.

Those jeans on the couch are now replaced by towels. I forget who noticed it. He made a topic a while back.

This topic seizes to amaze me on it's willingness to stay right at the top.
I won't be adding updates to the opening post anymore as I've been busy for some time now,
so trying to update it would be the least of my worries. But feel free to still post your finds, and
maybe when I get some time, I'll edit the opening post with some snippets that have yet to still
be put up.

The thing about the "Guy at Cafe" seems wrong. When I went to play pool with Little Jacob for the first time in one of my games, I saw him walking away from the table like in the pic. Not sure if it was just a random occasion, or if it happens every time you go there for the first time, but it was pretty interesting.
