@laserguy: Last year, Seattle 4 day passes sold out in 10 minutes. All the single day passes were gone within 6 hours. It's worse then PAX East. Good luck, my friend.

They went on sale closer to 12:05 EST. I clicked the think about 5 seconds after it was posted, got into the queue, and completed my transaction by about 12:10. We have a group of 6 this year and you could only buy 5 passes at a time so a friend got the other pass the same way I did. I knew there would be a mad dash for tickets which is why I had twitter text notifications turned on. You were just a bit too late unfortunately. I do agree they need to move the convention though. That show floor is shoulder to shoulder all day long at this point.
You guys and your fucking necroing.... There should be a rule against this.
Eh, it was already necroed once, a month and 20 days ago and that was after more than a year. What's one more time.
they still cant make a decent current gen version of the game, because most of their effort is on next gen.
Which I would have preferred, to be honest. Anyway, after a bit of research it seems that people have already found files relating to next gen and PC versions of the game when they tore apart the 360 version and looked into the iFruit app assets. So they obviously have been working on ports mid development like I said they could have. Maybe I'll wait around and see what comes of this. Whatever the case, it seems their strategy of release the inferior version first and get lots of money, then try to score double dipping off of suckers like me will probably work.
@naru_joe93: Your first point makes no sense. Just do like everyone else is doing and put it out on current and next gen simultaneously. Install base problem solved. Your second point is null since they have certainly known about new hardware for a long enough time to get a build working and polished on those platforms. I mean, they didn't begin development straight off on native PS3/360 hardware anyway. As for your third point, it's more a question of personal preference. You are right that it hasn't actually effected the mechanics of the gameplay too much so far. A few issues while driving arise but nothing unplayable by any means. But it is affecting a significant part of what GTA is for me; the immersion is completely broken. I'm now approaching it in a much more "video gamey" way instead of a character driven story that happens to be interactive. I'll see it through to the end but the poor performance and huge amount of aliasing everywhere are really putting a damper on my experience.
I haven't played a game on a console in the past year or so. Maybe I've just been spoiled by my PC but the game really runs pretty bad. Especially, when driving. It just makes me wonder even more why they didn't wait like 2 months to release it on new hardware.
@jedted: Yes. The part where the game makes you bury Big Brother is so powerful. How slow you move during this sequence and the music and everything really drive it home. Up until this point I kept thinking the magic water was going to take effect and Big Brother was going to wake up any second. Also that part where the camera spins around Little Brother and Big Brother hugs him. I totally thought that was real and then it spun around again and he was still on the ground. Way to kick me while I'm down, game. Such a great experience and a great game. From the amazing detailed visuals to the unique controls. The way they use the mechanics to tug at your heart strings. I loved every second of it.
This is the closest I ever got to the man. I wish I would have had the courage to introduce myself after he finished his interview. When I chickened out I figured that there's always next year... Now, I know how false that cliche is. I'll miss you Ryan. Thank you for being the person that you were.
I don't like when the multiplayer game I'm playing craps out and I lose connection to the host and find that my entire group of survivors is now either hungry or sick because I didn't get supplies in that last match. Anyone else getting this?
