Really R*?
Why don't you let me carry over the alliance I've built in Mass Effect 3 or my FIFA Ultimate Team or my dogs and cats from Farmville? How is carrying over your crew from another game a good thing?

You know there talking about there games not other games.Just wait for more details and stop getting butt hurt.

You should get a sarcasm-translator, Sheldon.
Of course they're talking about their game, that was at the core of my criticism.
It's their game so it's their way of giving us an incentive to buy Max Payne because it suggest that without Max Payne we won't get the full GTA V multiplayer experience. In the end that means more money for them.
And what's worst, it's so very obvious.

It's nothing special that GTAV will have crews. Good news to hear from Houser speaking on GTAV, but the words "a little further" made the previous words "getting closer to..." meaningless.

Altough I like MP3 and I'm looking forward to it. It's now more than ever a yelled secret that they are using GTAV to promote Max Payne 3 with this Crew feature. Not the kind of smart move I expected from Rockstar. Useful but looks like someone in take2 or Rockstar is not fully confident with the game. If Rockstar knows they have done a good game, they should be able to to actually talk about MP3.

How do you promote a "good game" if people haven't played it yet?

Using GTA V to sell MP3 is an excellent marketing strategy. The children who lurk these forums might not be buying it, but for the average fan this is likely to get some attention for MP3.

Even if they could "promote it without suddenly spreading the magic words GTAV" why would they, when saying "GTA V" automatically gets 1000x more attention for MP3?

So basically, if they were to cancel GTA V completely and would announce it today you'd go: colgate.gif , it's something new about GTA V.

I'm pretty sure we'll be able to form crews via social club, but we'll see.

GTA is not a MP game they just dont get it buy sleepingdogs instead this summer

Maybe you are not getting it.
Since IV came out GTA became also a MP game. I'd say that IV was already 50/50 (if not 40/60).
A lot of the people I know in GTA MP have never even played SP.
Personally I played it once, finished the story and then all the hours I had put in the game were exclusively in MP.
Same happened with RDR.
Nowadays games without MP do not make sense in the eyes of R*.
In fact their only recent game without it, LA Noire, was quite mediocre overall.
R* will keep making games with both SP and MP. Both strong, both good.
It's good news.

My GF does this.

She prestiged in RDR multiple times, and didn't spend a single second in SP.

I don't blame her, because as good as SP was in RDR, the MP was simply the best I've ever seen in an open world game.

V MP is going to epic.

It seems "to me" like they want to bring out both games as soon as possible. Well, you will create your Crew at MP3 and will use it later on GTA V. So for me it seems like a good way for a 2012 release.

Im really upset. I bought IV on the PS3 so that I could escape the evils of Social Club and GFWL on PC only to have it brought back to all consoles? That too with the incentive to buy another game?

What the f*ck are people bitching at now, you guys are pathetic, does this in anyway give players an advantage in GTA V? NO, it just means your "crew" and settings will be cross game transferable so you don't have to waste time setting it up between their games, if anything this sounds like an evolved version of Posse that was used in RDR and as most of us would agree, the Posse system in RDR made Multiplayer a lot quicker and easier to jump between games with friends unlike GTA IV.

Interesting. I'm not sure if I like the Vendetta idea though. I enjoy being stealthy, and I don't want players to know my exact locaqtion. I felt like RDR's Hardcore mode captured multiplayer perfectly.

Correction:

R* is pissing off ignorant, impatient GTA gamers with their brilliant marketing strategy for Max Payne 3.

When MP3 is a smashing success, and GTA V becomes the fastest piece of media to reach $1B in sales, people like you won't even be tuned in. You'll be spending ALL of your time in V MP ruining the experience for everyone else. Thanks.

Yes, finally a bit of information about V. Even if it's only a little bit. I'm so glad they are having a gang system in multiplayer. I logged so many hours into IV's multiplayer so this is going to be great.

No matter what adjectives you use, in the end it results in R* is pissing off GTA gamers to market MP3.
And I'm not sure that's such a smart move.

However, all this is speculation so far because - as has been said before - we don't know yet what exactly the crews will look like. It just speaks volumes that they need to market MP3 with GTA V.

Well, in the end, even the people on here that are constantly complaining and what not are going to end up spending $60+ bucks to buy GTA V, so in the end its not that bad of a move. The mission is to get you to buy the game, in which they will succeed in.

I know a hand full of people who love GTA. They will be there, in line, when it comes out.

However, what they don't do, is lurk these forums ass-aching about every little detail to do with Max Payne's marketing and how it pertains to GTA V.

I've been doing this for over 10 years now. Why aren't I pissed off? Because in the end, V will be here between 10/12 and 03/13, and it will kick serious ass as always.

MP3 first, GTA V later. For now, just be happy with the tidbits of V info we are getting. And have some f*cking patience. The floodgates will be open soon enough.

Off-topic but related:
Last week on my New England Patriots forum, everyone was bitching after the first day of free agency that the Pats hadn't made a splash. Days later, they made a big splash by signing a new WR, and by totally restocking at other positions of need. Now everyone is happy as pigs in sh*t, and the complainers are nowhere to be found.

GTA hardcore fans don't need marketing but there's a lot of casual gamers out there that never played/heard of GTA.
All games need marketing. In fact the marketing for IV was quite huge.

The most crazies theory i have ever heard: They don't give us information on GTA V because they want to make a special marketing strategy with it. They only give less information, and than, kawumm, they give us all information at one point. It probably will come out one month after MP3. Because guys, they finished SP, they work now on mulitplayer and thats it.

Can we be*lie*ve in that ?

Really R*?

I don't think that that is the point... IMO they want to make players who like to play 3rd person multiplayer games have more options. You can form a Crew and play Max Payne 3 with your friends as a team and fighting other teams. It won't be just a bunch of unknow people killing each other. The same Teams will be able to play the multiplayer of GTA 5 and other future Rockstar games and the rivalry will jump from one game to the next.

The Crews will play different games but I think that they won't have any advantage when jumping from MP3 to GTA5 or virce versa. Of corse they'll be playing as a team and If you always play with your friends you can develop strategies together and that's the point of it all. You'll have fun with your friends on different games through different game modes.
