I don't watch TV so I don't know, but has anybody actually seen a TV commercial for GTAV? (On TV... Youtube doesn't count).

Is that it, though? You would think there would be advertising everywhere now.

It's still a month away. I'd say in a few weeks or so. tounge.gif

We'll start to see them on MTV, VH1, E! and various other cable outlets. icon14.gif

I assumed they would of done be advertising for this game with commercials two months ago, unless they thinking everyone in the world done heard about this by word of mouth.

They actually start airing TV spots now at about 1 Week from release, I would go in depth with release dates and videos but I'm working from an Iphone.

GTA SA first TV Spot aired on MTV in October 2004
GTA IV first TV Spot aired sometime in the 20's of April 2009
GTA III first TV spot came around very late November 2001 due to 9/11 and Christmas
RDR first TV Spot aired on G4 a month before release due delay.

The only odd balls were GTA Vice City which aired its trailer well before
It's release sometime in the early months of 2002
And Max Payne which you could have spotted on G4, FX, or Spike a good Two
Months prior to release.

Alot of times big tv commercials won't air until the game is close or has already released.

With social media nowadays, it would be a complete waste of money. Especially since the trailer has been released in 2011, almost everyone should know about it by now.

I've heard of people watching the Gameplay TV spot but I've never ran into it in all the major channels that earlier games such as Max Payne 3 were in.

If they use one of the trailer's for the TV spot it should for sure be Trailer 2 with Stevie Wonder's Skeletons. It displays everything that the unhappy consumer of GTA4 wants in GTA5.

I vaguely remember an nfl game having an exclusive tv spot for a GTA game. I think it was San Andreas. Maybe they will do something like that.
