    Update #1:

    Seems there was some confusion in what you can actually do in the game. Here is what you actually do:

    - online interactivity does not include multiplayer
    - multiplayer is local system play
    - online connectivity allows sharing of locations, chat features, and item-trading with friends
    - stats can be uploaded to the Rockstar social site
    - “special contests, events, and promotions” are coming

    The wi-fi modes are going to suck big time. It's gonna be the complete opposite of what everyone expects. Probably some rush job in order to get a wi-fi stamp and have people be more interested in the game.

    They announced Wi-Fi back when the game was announced, they just never said what it was going to be used for. So I think they may have worked on it.

    So sweet ^^.

    This game is for sure going to be an early 09' game of the year.

    I can feel it.

    The only GTA games I have ever played were 2 and SA. Hopefully I find this game just as enjoyable. I don't really care much about doing the missions though because I mostly just play the games in order to mess around since the pedestrians and stuff are really interactive and it's fun [​IMG] .

    My 2 favourite GTA games I played were Vice City and GTA 2, GTA 4 imho wasn't that good because it was a bit too detailed where running was kinda slow and so was driving. I hope this game is gonna be great [​IMG]

    Does anyone remember the old days when fanboys would keep saying GTA would NEVER EVER come out for DS?

    We shall all laugh in their face.

    Hopefully there will be a cheat to change the camera perspective behind the player,like in pokemon or phantom hourglass.
