It says it right in the gameplay trailer that we can buy properties. It shows the Dynasty 8 website with a 250,000 apartment for sale. So I don't understand why people are saying that R* never said we could when they absolutely did.

As pissed as I am about this to be fair

Gameplay doesn't automatically mean "Singleplayer"

technically GtaO is gameplay too

 

It's confimed that that is GTA V Gameplay.  :panic:

They f*cked up vehicle handling and damage making it worse, less fun and less realistic than in GTA IV.

 

They have lack of basic interiors like Clickin Bell or Burger Shot which was even on GTA IV, and of course on GTA:SA.

 

And now they say we can't buy safehouses when they clearly stated in May and gameplay trailer that we could.

 

Good job R*...

OK, I just watched the Gameplay trailer again. This the quote where they say real estate and show the Dynasty 8 website.

 

"You decide what to spend your money on, anything from sensible investments like tattoos and fast cars, to risky ventures like stocks and Los Santos real estate. And then there's Grand Theft Auto Online, which we will show you properly soon."

 

From this it makes me believe that real estate is purchasable in SP, not Online, because the way they describe it, it's separate. But, we know how things can change, since in the first previews properties weren't in at all! Now they've come out with this comment, maybe they made real estate Online only, since they want it to be dynamic, and Online will be our world, whereas in SP the safehouses are related to M, F & T's storyline. If that makes sense.

November: You can't buy properties, this is not a real estate game

 

May: You can buy garages, houses, and businesses - this came from the SP previews! Before Online was announced!

 

Now: You can't buy safehouses in single player

 

What a lying f*cking company

 

I don't remember a single preview ever mentioning that you could buy safehouses in single player. 

 

Provide a source. I have always been under the understanding that safe houses where for the online.

You must of not read any of the previews then. R* said this to all of the previewers and almost all of them wrote up a paragraph on it.

@Thatdirehit -The proof is right above you.

 

 

You decide what to spend your money on, anything from sensible investments like tattoos and fast cars, to risky ventures like stocks and Los Santos real estate. And then there's Grand Theft Auto Online

"and THEN" which shows it's seperate. "Then" is the key word.

Burden of proof's on you. As far as I know they said you buy properties not explicitly safe houses.

I don't need to because I already read those previews. You probably need to reread them yourself. They never said you can purchase safehouses in SP. Properties you can purchase, but they function as a source of income not a safehouse.

Yeah you can purchase properties that you can recieve a revenue from. you can't use them as a safehouse. Again rockstar never said you can purchase safehouses. Not once.

:( Well to be honest I wish they would have just kept their mouths shut about property. It's not the end of the world but it's a huge disappointment for me. There aren't a lot of interiors in SP and I thought I wouldn't care because I thought we'd buy safehouses. Well now we can't.

 

I don't know about you all but I'm not big on Online. I guess if I want properties I'll have to play Online though. I mean, did they think about the people who didn't really care for GTA Online though? I feel like they're depriving SP of good features on purpose to force you to enjoy Online like developers do today. :cry:

They never said you can purchase safehouses in the may previews.  Unless you can provide the alleged quote all we have here is confusion on your part.

This is form the SINGLE PLAYER gameplay trailer.

Look at that. An apartment at Bay City Avenue, that is purchasable for $250,000. 

 

Im still not convinced that it has been completely removed. It may just open up at a later date, similar to the BAWSAW website which was not available immediately. 

 

It appears most of the websites are actually linked to the social club website, so they may be working out a few kinks.

From the May preview BEFORE online was announced:

"Each of the three characters even has his own bank account, allowing you to manage each one's purchases differently. These guys can buy property. The example I was given was a taxi company. It will generate regular income. They can buy houses, too."

Ah man, this is very disappointing,i can't deny that. I DO recall several previews stating that we could buy houses in the singleplayer as well. And of course that video, it;s only showing one house, but it is god f*cking damned misleading. Man this truly sucks, cause i was looking forward to spending money on that stuff and just enter the houses, i like interiors and i do NOT like it one bit that there is so little to enter in the game so far.

 

IV had multiple restaurants, hospitals and policestations and it gave the game more depth, why the hell didn't they just add some interiors? Not even a shopping mall. Nah man...i dont complain too quickly. but this f*cking sucks!!! We DO get this sh*t in GTAO? Jesus man...at least bring that for the SP too then.

 I clicked on the link. Nothing about safehouses. You can buy property in single player and use it as revenue. But you can't purchase them as a safehouse. We where never told that we could.

I am SO confused...

 

I saw someone online before the game released in a house up in the hills and they were playing as Franklin and I took that because he was roaming around the whole inside of the house and down a level or so was a dog house and chop sitting there when he walked up that he had bought that house.  

 

I want to say I saw him change clothes In the house but cant commit to that.  hum.

 

If not in game,  DLC Rockstar

No Houses is Plural not safehouse.

You didnt have to purchase your default safehouse so I don't understand your point
