|Nobody cares where the game was developed. R* is headquartered in NYC, so the game is from USA. Headquarter counts, nothing else.|
hahaha the butthurt is strong here.
GTA is British. Anyone who claims otherwise is a jealous little twat.
Of course GTA is British and anyone have one half of a brain knows that and accepts it.
But some 'Murikans can't stand that something so amazing could come from another country other than theirs.
R* NYC is the HQ and the only thing it's responsible for is the marketing, I do believe. R* North is where GTA began and has been devved ever since even after R* bought the company DMA Design. DMA Design was a Scottish game dev company that turned into R* North. They are Scottish = British = Not American.
You wouldn't claim Max Payne 3 was a Canadian game just because R* Vancouver was in Canada? I doubt that you would even tho it makes more sense considering the studio that made it was indeed in Canada. Just like R* North is in Scotland and R* are originally British, including Dan and Sam Houser.
It's part Scottish and part English. The Rockstar North office is in Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. They originated as DMA Design who made Lemmings and their office used to be in Dundee. So overall they're more Scottish than English, but you can settle on British if you want.
Rockstar Games handles recordings for voice overs and music too. I was told once that Rockstar North work in some odd hours sometimes so they're in sync with the offices in NYC.
There's a statue of Lemmings in Dundee now:
Also in the UK, GTA V has been off the charts in terms of pre-orders. GAME stores left and right are running out of pre-orders to give out and people can only resort to purchasing the standard edition. It's also being advertised in most shops now such as Tesco and Sainsbury's. I don't know if this is any different in the states.
