That gear they are wearing in the image looks modern day. If I had my own way Id prefer another period GTA set in the 70s. We've had the 80s with Vice City, the 90s with San An - We haven't had a full 3D version of the 70s yet though. The music - cars and cloths would be pimp. Not sure on the town I would choose - maybe Chicago 1977 and the start of Warehouse and Garage scene - I would even have a few skateboarding missions. Plenty of organised crime in Chicago at that time too. Who's in? :) :)
If I was a US citizen I would definitively be sending my letter to Sony. If they receive enough of these letters maybe it will make them think twice about pulling these stunts in the future and take some responsibility for their 'customers'.
