San Bernardino is much more run down. Plus, if San Bernardino were in the game, wouldn't it be more in the Blaine County area?

I originally thought the area pictured might be somewhere in Ventura or Santa Barbara, an area Rockstar has not shown us (or might not be in the game at all), but it has Los Santos County cars, so that's unlikely.

"San Fernando Valley" area??? Streets look too manicured to be in a rural/country setting (IMHO).

Yeah to me it looks like a San Fernando valley type area. But where would it be located? Do we have any screenshots from directly behind the Vinewood sign? That's where it's located in RL.

I think you coulde be onto something. Ive googled around and most of the images of the houses around the san fernando valley area look pretty much like the 2 in the screen shot.

Very much like this.

We have yet to glimpse directly behind vinewood. There some screens showing far behind it and towards the east but not right behind the western side.

It is quite interesting. Adding a SFV type area would be a great way to add more space to the city and give us a low density area to play in. Most of LS looks like it's going to be fairly dense so having a more suburban area would be interesting as a play area (burglaries anyone?). The SFV is also home to the porn industry and some movie studios i think. ive only been there ince but i remember it was a pretty big suburban area so thats what im going from. Another interesting thing too is that there has been a lot of speculation about a Heist being similar to the NoHo shoot out. In real life NoHo is located in the SFV so it would be cool for one of the earlier heists to be a simple bank robbery in the SFV type area. Sprawling suburbs are what makes LA famous as an example of Urban sprawl in American cities. R* has to give us something....

I believed SFV was in the game ever since seeing this shot here: user posted image

I lived in SFV for about 5 years and this road is similar to a lot of the roads that intersect the mountains that separate the LA basin from the SFV... Consider this road to be a Mullholland Dr. like place... Anyways I feel like the SFV is either west (behind the observatory or getty) or to the east... In real life the SFV is huge. has over 2.1 million people and covers many cities: Burbank, Northridge, Woodland Hills, Porter Ranch, Encino, North Hollywood, Glendale, Van Nuys, etc...

THE ENTIRE SFV: user posted image

As you can see part of the sfv (glendale/burbank) actually comes very close to downtown LA; part of it is very close to Dodger stadium.

...I'd agree their take on the SFV would most likely reside behind the observatory/getty. Which would be this lovely patch of open land:

Although I think that's where some have the vineyard at, so I'm not 100% certain.

Would make sense, that's the Malibu area and what not I think they would be crazy to leave that area out.

Think so, too. However there might be some hills like it is in Malibu and not just flat land between the mountains.

Updated Google map.

I changed the lay out of the alamo sea along with the scale which is way closer to the map created on here.
Also the shape of the map is changed quite a bit. I've added more mountain ranges and tried to resemble
it as close as the created map.

The valley is added into it also on the left of LS,

Here is the updated Version, (click for the HERE full size)

It looks to me like on of those towns from San Andreas that were in the countryside, where you were taken by Tenpenny, and the one which was the best to finish those ambulance missions. More likely a town than any big city.

I have the feeling the screenshot is taken around the same place this screenshot was taken. but yet i have no idea where this is at all. i hope its behind vinewood. would be a good representation.

I can't wait to compare it to the map when it's revealed! Can anyone remember when IV's map was shown for the first time? I seem to remember it being found on a boats computer screen well before they released it.

I've been getting the impression that these two shots were taken in a similar (but not 100% the same) location. The trees are similar.

I didn't think so, plus I haven't heard anything about Ballas returning. IMO Grove street is over with, so I'm glad R* will leave it out.

Ballas will return.. was confirmed in the Game Informer. As well as the Families (Grove Street is just a set of this gang - it's still not sure if they also will return).

I think that picture of Trevor jumping his ATV shows the back of Vinewood to the left, and there are tiny houses on it up the hill. But I think it's more likely Franklin is in the Malibu area./Santa Monica hillside.
