If this is posted before, then sorry, but I will show this to you. This is one of the magazine scans that shows you an early version of the game (2000) with the "GAME PAUSED" in the middle. And the symbols in the top are the Luigi's club banner. Also, the PS2 devkit is spotted on the bottom left corner.

@zanesix Thanks for the clarification. So that means they paused the game. By the way the "symbols" on the top is the Luigi's club banner.

That looks like the sign for Luigi's club.

Thanks @thehambone! By the way do the pre-9/11 builds have serial codes (SLUS-xxxxx)?

Hey is there any proper source to indicate that rockstar were planning on making a rock station for the game? The only source is gtawiki which I take a grain of salt from.

there's this snippet from an old IGN article:

Quote

Each car you steal, carjack or accommodate plays a different station, be it country, rock, hip-hop, or techno. And as always, the radio stations are jam-packed with lippy DJs, fictitious commercials, and lots of cocky humor. The music I heard at DMA was remarkably similar to music I hear on the real radio, too.

I'm curious as to what type of rock it would've played but how would a country station would be an exact fit for gta 3 lol?

Both GTA 1 and GTA 2 had some degree of country music so it isn't anything surprising.

 

A good bet is that we will find out what those radios were once the community gets the GTA 3 design document.

True but there is no market in here for this city, but in terms of the rock station, since we had classic rock in the previous iterations. Kind of would've made sense that perhaps stikki fingaz wouldve returned. 

 

Design document???

Not sure what you mean. SLUS/SLES codes are region codes for the PS2 game disc, they generally don't change with game versions, and the game wasn't released before 9/11.

If you're talking about the version that has a different Dodo flight path, that's the "first pressing" of the European version of the game. This version has the following:

  • Region code is SLES-50330 (without the '#' sign at the end)
  • DATA/PATHS/FLIGHT2.DAT is larger, file size is 2,636 bytes
  • MAIN.SCM is smaller, file size is 605,327 bytes, and there's a bug preventing 100% completion, however there is a workaround
  • A few other minuscule differences I'm probably forgetting about

I know that the game is released after 9/11. However, do the pre-9/11 discs show the region code? And are they leaked?

Nice find. Also, interesting document. Can you scan the entire book with the PDF and PM me the link once you bought it? Because I live in a sanctioned country.

Like I said in the gta 3d mod thread, kinda odd how in the table of contents, Darkel gets his own chapter/section instead of just being clumped in with the rest of the characters

Does anybody have highest-res Official PlayStation 2 magazine issue 3 PDF so I can find some images? Because I have seen an image where 3DS Studio Maxx is open to the police officer model.

Pretty much, I guess the brits wanted to show they were made of. GTA3 would've better with techno than trance since there was gonna be a techno station as well as Rock + Country. I guess its the yakuza to some extent as their favorite was funami fm in GTA 2.

I Iiked the trance though, gave it an edgy appeal and more plausible to find in America than DnB, but surely there’s a gta 3 radio thread for conversations like this as not to get too offtopic

We kind of got drifted off with the existing stations but this may sound dumb but since the first two gta games had like redneck gangs, would've there been one to be intended to be in gta 3? 

 

Could this be another explanation why perhaps there was no rock and country station in 3.

 

I'm more curious about any cut radio stations and gangs.

In GTA 1's defense, it had the same seven (?) radio stations spread out across three cities and I don't remember GTA 1 having a redneck gang, only GTA 2.

 

But as far as the cut radio stations and gangs, only time will tell until @GTA Series Videos or @GTA-Series.com whatever they go by gets their hands on the GDD and post it here
