Alright, so the V in the logo looks like US currency. So GTA V has money in it. CONFIRMED.
You Will Get to See a Grand Theft Auto V Trailer In VIII Days
I might be more excited for this than I have been for any video game ever (apologies to Skyrim and ME3). Hell, I would be excited for a patch of IV which added mission checkpoints. Checkpoints made Lost and Damned and Gay Tony way better games to play, though I didn't think the plot or characters in the expansions were as good as the ones in IV.
@defector: Judging that the numeral has a background that similar to an american dollar and that the font is old timey like a bank note I think that this story will be you playing somebody working there way up the corporate ladder of the bank industry (and it turns out that they're more powerful than the mob). You probably get thrown into a mess against your will or by accident or be put in a situation were you had to do something bad, this would then make room for some rockstar trade mark emotion/writing which could be better but is still alright. With this power you'll at some-point take control of a section of this 'mob'-style insanity and give orders, get mad and get twitchy with temper (or the other-side if you want to be good). You play either an Indian, one of the latins or an American.
This is all guess-work ;)
If it is LA/Los Santos, i will cream my jeans and shit myself at the same time. San Andreas was probably my favourite game of the last 10 years. Spent so long playing it modded to hell on the PC.
I'd love to see a grittier take on LA, maybe looking at it through the eyes of the TV show 'The Shield'. Corrupt Coppers for the win!
Well the logo is clearly a reference to money, what with the fancy banner and color and shading and whatnot.
Personally? I'm hoping the main character is a no-nonsense lady. They've already had a black man and an immigrant, they should complete the trifecta and make insecure dudes really uncomfortable!
Has anyone seen the HBO show Treme? A post hurricane New Orleans would be a great location for a GTA game, especially with the rich culture of music that the city has. Also, the hurricane would be a good contrivance for sectioning off areas of the map at the start due to flood damage or something. I've envisioned this game to the point that whatever they actually announce won't be as good as the game in my head.
.....i still need to finish the pigeons from number 4. guess Batman is getting a break tonight
Haha, first thing I thought when I first heard of this. "Damn, guess I should finally do all those jumps and pigeons, and the DLC..."
Looks like the texture of a dollar bill. I wonder where it's going to take place, but from the looks, it doesn't look like Vice City; could be new (maybe even real?). What if they make/let you go to all the GTA areas? Liberty City, Vice City, Liberty City. I'm excited to see this new GTA, I don't really have any good ideas as to what this will be.
Can't wait for the game itself. GTA IV took a large chunk of my life (30 hours in the first week not counting reloads and multiplayer). If it wasn't for the trophy patch and my PS3 dying taking my save with it I would have beaten it by now.
Here's hoping for a holiday '12 release
Green has five letters...
Green is the color of money and if you look closely at the V it has kind of a money like texture to it.
Also it could just mean that it's set in Ireland, I doubt it though, or that the main character is Irish... or it could just mean nothing.
Reading the responses to this article, i find myself in the minority group of people who didn't like gta4. Personally, i hope gta 5 is more like gta 3 vice city and less like the 4th gta (which in my opinion was boring with bad/lazy game play elements).
Interesting that they're going straight to Five and not spin-off the series like they did after Three.
Hard to believe it's already been 4 years since the last game and it will probably be at least another before this game actually comes out.
I was so excited when I saw this today! Me and a friend printed out copies of that logo and handed them out randomly on the street in the middle of town. A memorable day :D
What the fuck?
Sometimes I like to allow myself to become a kid again
Hey, ain't nothin' wrong with that. Gotta let that inner kid out sometimes, or else you become a stuck up sumbitch!
Looks very similar to the font and style used in US currency
That was my initial thought. That makes me guess that it will once again be in some semblance of a US city.
The fact that is is a "money" style font makes me suspect that they will return to the "empire building" feel that Vice City Stories had. That's just my 5 second off-the-cuff prediction though.
Judging from the clue of the V, the game is going to be begin in Washington DC in the 1850s and you will play as Abraham Lincoln, who starts out as a low level mob enforcer and rises to power ending up as President of the United States. But after a failed assassination attempt in 1965 you fake your death and then hunt down your old mob buddies who tried to have you killed.
