GTA IV Trailer Countdown

Nice one Stuch icon14.gif

 

I was initially worried about when the date for the end of the countdown fell, as April is coming up and with it April fools day which Rockstar are notorious for pranks played. But as it's end of March we should be ok, the hype for this may well be bigger than that of San Andreas, bring on October!

I actually think that the trailer may be not much more than a black screen with the GTA IV logo printed on it, and maybe a quick flash of a road or something.

A shot of a road, with a car driving past, and a character sat in it fiddling with the radio. That's all we'll get I reckon. Ever the pessimist I suppose!

At least you wont be dissapointed then tounge.gif

I'm sure we'll have loads of posts going 'that was rubbish, didn't tell us anything'

That's why. I don't think Rockstar will open the floodgates for speculation just yet. Something will be revealed, just not much. Something to get us drooling.

If someone did hack the site, they would find some placeholder file with only ther proper filename extension tounge.gif Will say "haha, nice try" or something when watched lol.

 

Man, this is sweet. And I was gonna kill myself last night too.

 

Better not be an april fools trick...

The countdown is affected by your system clock... unfortunately it seems that no matter how many days after the 29th you set it, there is still 14 hours to go?

Nah, if you set your clock to 5:59pm (Central Time, + or - your time zone accordingly) you can watch it count down to zero. It just jumps back up to 24 hours once it hits 6:00pm though.

Heh, I totally just got that "OMG theres a new GTA comming!" feeling. Just like San An when the logo was first shown and everyone went nuts with the font. And the first screens were shown in a Mag that was on sale at E3 and everyone was constantly refreshing the forums to see new scans. Ah, I love these times.

 

Anywho, bring on the trailer! I totally think Rockstar have been bribed to do this by Microsoft or Sony. Just to sell more machines.

I just think it'll stop at zero, and then maybe be an available download for a countdown to the real deal.

OH MY FUC*EN LORD! THIS IS THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE! I just got that email from Rockstar then and I seriously just straight away came to the forums. This is so cool. I want to have sexual intercourse with Rocstar because they are giving us this trailer. But we still got like 25 days left.

Just checked Wikipedia and it says a trailer has been announced for the end of March 2007, so I assuming this isn't a stunt by R*, and could actually be further insight.

WOW!!!Truly amazing!But I think that means that this week-end or next week they`re release some Screenshots,or at least some info,`cuz makes no sense to release something official(info/pics) after the trailer.My opinion.

 

Some one of you said Jesus H Christ .What that H means?

i doubt it, they know were all sh*tting our pants right now, releasing screenshots before that countdown is over would ruin the suspense.

So you are saying that they wont release not even a Goddamn pic before the trailer?I don`t think so.Usually the pics come before the release of one trailer.But maybe you`re right even though that will be an error.

I don't know if that was such a wonderful idea. Lets consider this rationally. This is going to be one of the most anticipated games, so people will be wanting to see the trailer from the start. If one in a thousand of GTA fans will be watching this countdown during the last minutes, this will give you 10K+ people easily. Probably more. So what's going to happen when countdown concludes? Like most countdown scripts, this one will probably just refresh the page. I tried running the timer down to zero, and nothing exciting has happened, so refresh it is, most likely. What do you think is going to happen when tens of thousands of people will attempt to refresh that one page at once?

 

Don't get me wrong. I'm going to be there watching the countdown with the rest of ya. I just don't think we'll see anything more exciting than a page that keeps timing out.

Prior to filing a bug against any of my code, please consider this response to common concerns.

Like other people, I though I would set this as my Homepage, but that just isn't enough.

 

The countdown .swf file is now my wallpaper:

Anyone know where I can find a link to subscribe to the GTA mailing list now that there isn't a link on the IV site?

I bet they're just screwing with us. It'll be something like 'GTAIV - Coming 16.11.07' and then it ends. That would be sweet.

I thought i was already signed up to the newsletter, apparantly not. I'm definately signed up now though, don't want to miss a thing.

 

I hope the main character is British, that would really make me happy. Doesn't have to be set in England though, i don't mind where in the world it's set. On another note.. i need to get an Xbox360 or PS3 first if i want to play it.. Which do you think would be better? I'm guessing PS3 because of the graphics but the only other game i'd buy is MGS4.. the 360 seems to have a better selection of games. I'd only be playing GTA4 anyway so it wouldn't matter too much tounge.gif

If you're using Google Mail, make sure they aren't being sent to the spam folder. That's where I found mine.. turn.giftounge.gif

I'd probably cry, but it'll prove me right anyway. I do hope we get more, but we probably won't. We all know what Rockstar are like.

Crazy how a timer can suddenly send a surge of excitement through my body like this. Can't wait to see what it's going to be like.

 

I ordered it from Play.com already.
