    Hate to be a buzz kill but if this is next gen graphics, then I’m not wowed at all. To be honest the character models and graphics look better in gta v and that’s this gen…

    lol First off the video actually was bad quality, even though it was 720p the quality was PIXELED and grainy…..if they come out with a HD version of THIS that would be helpful…because even I could barely make much out of it….

    I’m looking forward to it, but I’m looking forward to GTAV first, only because I’m a GTA fan first and a third party game second. lol I’m picky about other kinds of open world/sandbox games for the most part. Most are good as long as you have no boundaries.

    Tell me that after the game comes out and everyone is talking about it being the best game ever made… Can you wait an extra 5-7 months? I’m getting it on the 360 at launch because i’ve waited to god damn long for GTA V already!

    I can wait, I’m not that anxious. I don’t even have any kind of console, because I’m not American, and paying for the monetary exchange to my country’s currency of an already expensive console in its own original price is dangerous for my and my house’s economy, but what else can I do?
