Wait a sec.. Where is the countdown for the release of GTA: ONLINE in this picture?

This is during a mission, probably doesn't appear during a mission so you don't accidentally switch to your online character and lose all your progress

Doesn't it show up when Michael is rescuing the guy from the FIB building? ph34r.gif

Also, I'm sure mid-mission even if it was there, we'd get a prompt before actually being able to lose our progress.

That building is a saw mill? I thought it was a gold mill like the one in Bodie, California.

Maybe there is a series of mine tunnels that lead to the shack on the mountaintop...

Yeah I don't think it's a saw mill, among other things it's covered in chimneys.

It looks like it's for metal extraction, probably gold with the context of the game.

May be allready found, but here you go:

Good find, but it was found not long after the gameplay trailer came out.
You can make out the sawmill from the "shack" image from Mt. Chiliad.

To me it doesn't really look like it confused.gif

Maybe someone can explain it better?

I can't put up any pics right now, I'm on my iFruit at the moment.
To be honest, if we didn't know it was next to Mt. Chiliad, it would be very hard to identify.
The rusty red walls & roof plus the dirt area surrounding the mill are dead giveaways though.
A few frames after the image shown, you can see the "shack" in the top of the screen.
That's how we know the rough location.

This?

how'd u get these hi-res screenshots? biggrin.gif

If serious:

you can go to www.rockstargames.com/v

play the video (which is 360p), click the "plus" sign:

And then click "download" (the HD version obviously). This video is in 720p.

What's even more cool to do is to copy the 720p movie to a USB stick, copy it on your PS3 HDD and play the trailer on your big ass tv, with "home cinema set bass" and in 720p.

Just try it ;-)







This is a direct link to the 720p version of the Online trailer:

And a link to the gameplay trailer (also in 720p):

720p = 1280x720.

I did that, but then I watched MGS V trailer in 1080p on my TV and the magic of the GTA V trailer was gone.

Another shining example of a post that stays up, despite the use of sexually derogatory words, outright rudeness, and meanspirited attitude. Have seen dozens of them just today, but hey, at least there were no 'spoilers' involved.

I was wondering the same thing... Why the moderators allow derogatory words to stay up. But God forbid there's a small spoiler! Maybe you mods should take after R* and actually remove offensive comments.

The arch, moulding & metalwork above Michael's head is from Paramount Pictures studio on Melrose Drive.

They actually included it! But where the hell could it be? By the looks of it not in Vinewood. Maybe Koreatown? If it's as big in real life they must be hiding it pretty well.

EDIT: Actually, I think it's right here:

IRL Paramount Pictures is in studio City which is closer to the 405 which in turn is close to the Getty (right before the 405 leads to the SFV)

Edit: That's sony that is in Studio City, Paramount is in Hollywood.

I think, clearly not. The AT&T building (in micheals abseiling pic) is between two other buildings, the one micheal is on certainly is taller, and very close, no such buildings in that pic, I speculate that CVG got it right by saying control tower...:S

damn yeah that's right about the placement of that tower... but I still don't believe that that's the control tower in my first pic

No. Different structure.
It was discussed a few days ago. It's believed to be the sign for the Los Santos Coliseum.
In the game it's probably called the Maize Bank Arena.

It's definitely not an air-traffic control tower. That would be way off screen to the bottom right.
It closely matches the real life Los Angeles Coliseum sign & is in the right place to be a sign for the Los Santos Arena.
