| About the CVG thing, there is one point I don't get.|
They are talking about the character switch in this google earth style. So they must have seen the map being zoomed out and back in again. Why can't they be a bit more accurate then? I just don't get it
They said they saw some static noise, probably added to keep it a secret. Or perhaps R* went a bit over their head with the zooming feature, I don't know. In any case, the zooming height and loading time depends on the distance between characters, so perhaps they only saw a tiny portion.
EDIT: @Sept17th2013, not true at all, they went to the preview as GTA fans, and you can tell by their show that they were very prepared and made sketches and notes of pretty much everything. They had a pretty indept show about the character switching, but I can't remember which one. In any case, the view was obstructed, due to static noise and height.
EDIT2: This is what they wrote in their article of the demo. I'll look into the video part now.
"The transition between the three protagonists is smooth; the camera zooms out to a Google Earth view, the screen fills with static, the camera moves across the city and zooms back into your chosen character
The closer characters are, the quicker the transition. During missions where they're all together its instantaneous
EDIT3: Their video is right here
. The zooming out happens on 3 layers, but it's not really clear if they saw the top layer, and how high it was.
