I've seen alot of people complaining about Rockstar's marketing lately.
So I thought I'd give some of you guys a reminder.

So far we have seen this.
80+ Screenshots has been released so far.
Boxart
Two trailers
GameInformer's has done a massive article on GTA V.



How much do we really want to see of the game?
Do YOU want Rockstar to spoil the experience for you?

I bet the answer is NO, and therefor I think people who feel targeted should stop complaining.

Rockstar are doing a fantastic job on marketing their game, even though it's been SLOW.

When Rockstar releases the third trailer, I certainly hope it will not explore to much of the map. Hopefully they will show us improved game mechanics for minor spoilers.

It's not even slow marketing either, the game comes out in September, they're going to start smashing it over the next few months.

Only pessimistic idiots would want more. More artworks and minor information is not a problem, but anything else is just ridiculous. I've gotta admit we have the WORST fanbase, even worse than the COD fanbase.

Not trying to be rude to the people on the forums, but it's a game, and it will come out soon. Why sit there complaining all the time that their marketing is too slow? It won't make the wait any faster, it most likely just make you more impatient. I'm assuming most you you guys here have jobs to keep you occupied, among other games as well. I swear some of the people treat GTA V like a damn religion or something.

Why is it that when I say this I get like 5 replies telling me i'm an *sshole. Making threads complaining about the marketing and then saying that they aren't with no real purpose to the thread is stupid.

THANK YOU, OP!

I'm sick and tired of this damn forum. Like someone already said, we have a poor fanbase. This place is full of immature little whining bitches. Rockstar have always been like this and they said they won't change. They do this so the experience of playing the game is the best possible. If you want your game spoiled before you even buy it then go play CoD or Assassin's Creed. Plus, a new game every year, you'll never ever have to stop complaining.

So far, as said by OP, we have got 2x trailers, 80+ screens, artwork and a huge magazine article. They just painted the god damn artwork on the side of a building in NY and guess what? There are still 5 months left before the game is out! We'll see much more in the coming months.

Rockstar are doing an amazing job. GTA V will be a best seller! Possibly best selling game this generation! Rockstar make high quality games and that takes a lot of time. You all don't appreciate that! You just want the god damn game in your hands so you can all find something to rage about!

As for me. I'm leaving this forum. I want to have a discussion about a game I love but no chance. I'll find somewhere else. I won't miss all the dumb ass posts and complaints you all make. Knock yourselves out!

Because I like information before mindlessly buying something? Just because a company consistently releases great games doesn't mean they don't release the odd bad apple. It's all subjective.

Although what you say is true.

The game has been in development since 2008, we first got to see the game at the end of 2011. It looked great, and since then we have been given lots of info about the game.

So Far I feel there is nothing to worry about.

I don't have to high expectations, they are realistic.

I trust Rockstar, and what they have said so far leads me to believe they will deliever a good product.

NO. As long as they even release GREAT games like this, nothing else matters. If you check once in a while or are interested, then wait for info/screens patiently instead of complaining. Have you got a better solution? No, right? Then shut up.

Over the span of almost a year and a half! It is not the amount, it is when they release the content. Rockstar deliberately releases its stuff in bursts. We get one week of content, mostly some cool screen shots, then Rockstar throws a bloody info-drought that lasts 2 or so months. And this has been for over a year.

I also recall Rockstar telling us that we would get some more news at the end of the month. Well... that news was the f*cking September delay. It is bullsh*t like that which angers people. So yes, many people do have a problem with Rockstar's marketing. I just wish they were more consistent. Currently that are treating us like a bunch of children. Rockstar has a professional obligation as a producer to give people even marketing and sound release dates.

You've misunderstood everything I've said. I'M NOT COMPLAINING ABOUT THE LACK OF INFORMATION.

I've expressed my disappointment at the way certain aspects of marketing have been handled/unveiled. Stop being so defensive, Rockstar doesn't care about you.

Tbh, I'd be happy with another trailer, and that's it. I've seen more than enough screens, and don't want to be spoiled with anymore info regarding story or features.

In my opinion, marketing is not just about what you give; it's how you give - IMO Rockstar has failed at that.

Seriously, if a Rockstar fan[boy] like me doesn't get excited by the unveiling of the f*cking box- art, then the marketing has been a, well, debacle.

If you meant me, i wasn't talking about lack of information. As far as i know, releasing screens/box art and info IS marketing aswell, so people are basically complaining over this. Let's just end this here, right now.

Same here. We got plenty of info, but the wait between announcements, the whole weird "here comes cover art, no wait, a delay," etc has been ridiculous.

Too right. There are so many people who will midlessly jump to Rockstar's defense when ever it is critiqued. In order to keep producers in line there needs to be critical scrutiny in the companies actions. If the producer gets lazy and does a bad job it is the consumers job to tell them that and give them constructive criticism. If no one scrutinizes the company for its errors they will surely do it again. I am confident that Rockstar will release a fantastic game on September 17, but they really do need to handle marketing better and at least act like they care about their consumers.

And what is the point of that? You know where that gets you? Just look at this thread, it's based off of you. Expressing your dissapointment is just another way of saying that you're complaining. Instead why don't we discuss things like what we want to see next, like a multiplayer trailer and stuff like that, instead of discussing their marketing which has been discussed like a billion times now.

You just complained in your own thread about how members can't comment without being insulting. GTAfan786 is right, you are a f*cking hypocrite.

Also, trusting in a company that "consistently releases great games" is hardly mindless... this is a trust built on experience. You've loved every GTA thus far, the game is being made by the same writers and development team, and we have plenty of info already... what more reassurance do you need? You can always wait till it comes out and read the reviews, or watch a playthough on youtube. You don't have to pre-order it if you're that paranoid about it being "a bad apple."

You can pre-order the game for PC at Gamestop.

Trollolol, this confirms a PC release.

Just kidding, but I'm sure we will see the game on PC within the next year smile.gif
