One thing os for sure, I have never seen so much anticipation for "info" concerning a video game. I have witnessed all the pre-release hype for every major GTA title since GTA III and this surely is something different. It's almost as if the release of info is being hyped more than the release of the game itself. If Gamestop or some other retailer had a midnight release of the next trailer some people on here would probably be willing to camp outside the store to see it up close before everyone else. Then we also have the actual release of the game sometime in the future, oh my... epic times ahead... biggrin.gif

Also we can keep all Rocktober related conversation in here to lessen the mod's work.

Prove how you found this information out.

All I know is if R* made a HD collection of GTA 3, Vice City and San Andreas it would sell like hot cakes. THIS collection though not so much.

Notice how it's called Collection 1.

I wonder what collection 2 will contain, and when it will be announced...

Although from the way Collection 1 looks, I strongly doubt they'd release the III era games remastered in HD for any of their 'rockstar game collections". It looks like the collections are only containing games that have already been released by R*.

Although I would be willing to pay at least $100 for a remastered HD III era trilogy. Maybe even a saga, with the 2 PSP titles included to make a total of 5 GTA games remastered in HD with trophies.

We go deeper than other mags... That means when we write news, we actually bother to pick up the phone and get comment. That means our reviews won't be based on two minutes' play. And that means, when we preview something, we've played it or seen it in action.

If memory serves me correctly, I believe that tweet said they were previewing GTAV in issue 124 which releases this OCT 17th.

Lol idk why they included the GTAIV DLC in the collection but excluded the vanilla. Thats not cool confused.gif

If they made collection 2 have Undead Nightmare, Bully, Max Payne 3, and .. um... Agent(?) I would definately buy it since I haven't played any of those.

MAYBE they have played it, but more than likely they just "seen it in action," but not gameplay, if they indeed have, it is probably trailer 2... or a sh*t load of screenshots. Who knows really. I refuse to get excited over these magazines claiming to have a GTAV preview. They may have thought that trailer 2 would be released by now, or that they would have been granted a look at the game in time for a preview.

So, they showed the last batch of screenshots in their latest issue (123)? I think there's not a real reason to show the same screeshots. Am I wrong?

You are not wrong, it was 123 where they showed the Screens, and no, they shouldn't show the same screens. But its possible that they say the "preview will be delayed for [insert reason here]" or the magazine will be delayed by a few days due to an embargo or something if in fact they have something.

Not if R* gave the magazine some new ones.

Personally i think it won't be anything new or special, juiveist some speculation and rumours as a preview. I mean, does the cover say 'exclusive preview' and have GTA V all on the cover? If not...i really doubt its of any significance. Unless more magazines will get previews soon...didn't someone from GI tweet about being really excited about next cover? Maybe its finally time.

anyone asked them about that GTA V preview....
they seeem very talkative and maybe they will instantly say if it is sth new or not
or they are like GI and keep quiet until the cover release

I tweeted them but so far haven't gotten a reply. They seem to be keeping really quiet about it.. several people have asked about it through comments on the tweet etc. and XBW hasn't replied to any of them. Wether theres a reason for that or not I don't know.

Wouldn't this fall under catalogue titles though? There's no way this is what's gonna make up that $600m TakeTwo predicted by the end of the fiscal year. That is 99% likely to GTA V.

Yeah but on the other hand, if they'd come out now and say it's not about brand new information or screenshots, anyone interested in buying the mag for GTA V stuff, wouldn't be anymore.

They covered the 10 screenshots last time? Or was it the two screenshots from July?

Yeah they covered all of the new screenshots and had a look back at the trailer last time.

Here's a link to the GTA V version of the cover: http://www.newsstand..._DEC-12-123.jpg

I doubt they have preview for this months edition. If it was November, than ok, since GI would be the first one to get it and they release next one early next month.

Why has to be GI to have first preview?

Issue 124 is their November number,right?

Actually I'm almost convinced now that they meant to write Issue 123 instead of Issue 124. The reason being that all of the games mentioned in the tweet were featured in issue 123 and the tweet was posted on the same day as that issue was released.

Oh well.. the hype was fun while it lasted sad.gif

Because magazines like Xbox World don't get exclusive stories. Its simple marketing thing. You give exclusive story for your biggest game to the biggest gaming magazine with ~5 mil subscribers, not the likes of XBW. Anyway, it turns out its of course not the case, and it was actually 123 edition "preview".

It's just bullsh*t to call it a preview though. It will be almost a year later and nobody knows a thing, so what the hell are they gonna talk about? If you don't have anything, don't even come with this stuff, imo its only bad for your magazine. Ah well, next week we'll see. And even though Andy or that other dude from GI said he was very excited about the next cover...could be any goddamn thing.

@ViceCityFTW

I recall reading that that XBW DID have an exclusive GTA article in the past...

So er... anyone still thinks we are going to see GTA V released in fiscal 13?
What happened to all those Take2 financial report threads that predicted a "definite" release before March 2013?
