I too think it's for misdirection.

Everyone knows that Vice City is Miami City, but they used a fictional name for protection from lawsuits, maybe?

In hindsight, Vice City would be a good fake name for Vegas...

Liberty City in III was NYC, soooooo...

San Andreas seems most likey for GTA: V.

Now, which REAL city will it be modeled after? (Vegas probably. Maybe LA?)

Something along the similarly named fault line.

San Fran maybe? All the hills would rock. Think of all the jump bonus'

San Francisco seems to be the logical choice given what they've used so far. Nice ethnic neighborhoods, a port, great landscape...

Driver 2 had a San Fran level and I LOVED all the jumps on those mountain sides they call streets. I still have saved replays of some WICKED jumps/stunts I could pull off on those streets.

I'm really pulling for Sin City, if only because a city in the desert might finally put an end to STUPID FUCKING BOAT MISSIONS.

Not likely with the Hoover damn right there... I'm sure they would have Lake Mead or something like that.

Hey, I actually know someone who works at Rockstar (third hand, but I know his phone number).

I wonder how much info he'd be willing to leak

I'm never going to make the call, don't even get your hopes up.

I'd be the happiest motherfucker alive if they set the game in the 1970's and added a 'Streets of San Francisco' feel to it with soundtrack and afros to match.

I'm pretty sure it won't be Sin City but I would love if they went with it since the following sound so appealing..

1. Running a casino and/or robbing it

2. Gambling based mini games, ala roulette,black jack, poker, slots,etc.

From here (ps2.ign.com):

    Originally posted by PS2.IGN
    A few well-connected folks who have friends at Rockstar North have told IGN that the next GTA will use Sony's upcoming HDD (Hard-Disc Drive, due out in March as a bundle pack with Final Fantasy XI). While we honestly have a hard time believing any of the rumors constantly surrounding the next GTA, this one is very credible. Rockstar wants to show the world that this next iteration is no add-on, and it's built up such a commotion, it now has a lot to live up to. Our contact suggests the HDD will enable players to store ripped music to be played on the numerous vehicle radio stations. It could be used for add-on new vehicles, and possibly even modifiable missions, too. That last one, well, we're a little leery of that happening. But it will be interesting either way.


I hope the game is still playable without the hard drive. So long as its all bonus content and features, I can live without spending ~$50.00 on a hard-drive.

It would be funny if you could change the name of the city on your hard-drive. Then, we'd all be right about where the next GTA game would take place...
