Do you think Rockstar will ridicule E3 IN GTA 5?

From the GTA 5 trailer and subsequent confirmation from Rockstar it is clear the next game will be set in fictional Los Angeles. With that in mind, do you think Rockstar will ridicule E3? Will there be a mission at the LA convention centre with fake video game posters? 
 
What do you guys think and what would you like to see if there was an E3 focused mission in the game?

Have they ever displayed any vitriol towards E3 in the past? If not, I don't see why they'd start now.

Eliminate all Nintendo fans with stealth kills, and take out the primary target dressed in a Mario costume with a headshot to the M.

I think they may pass light commentary on it with a poster or two.

Yeah why not. I think that's a cool idea.

It would be neat if there was a gag or two about it, but anything too drawn out or explicit would seem weird.

Maybe they'll take a stab at Jack Thompson's challenge to make a game where you go on a killing spree at E3.

@sickVisionz: Rockstar doesn't participate much in E3. I don't think a GTA game has been shown there since GTA3. During the E3 before San Andreas was released they released screenshots of the LA Convention Center in San Andreas with CJ on a bike in the foreground. It's a subtle nudge nudge wink wink at E3. Them releasing screenshots and the reveal that there would be bicycles was enough to make the gaming news without having to actually attend E3 and still get E3 coverage.

At the very least the LA Convention Center will be in the game.

No, but in some of the VO script stuff that leaked from the game they did have a character in there who was described as living in a basement and playing military shooters all day.

It´d be kinda cool if they do a radio news about it or some kind of gag but I doubt something like that even gets done into a mission but who knows.
