Ignore the corny-ass title and take a look at this article published by 1UP how about things could of been if Microsoft would of taken Rockstar's proposal. According to Dean Takahasi, author of the "Xbox 360: Uncloaked" book, The big MS was offered an exclusive agreement with Rockstar to produce the GTA series on Microsoft's little machine. However a third party developers' organization known as The Star Chamber (who represents Microsoft's developer division) declined this offer and stated they needed to make a clean image for themselves. It's an intresting retrospective read on how things could of been in the GTA community.

QUOTE
Takahashi said: "It wasn't Microsoft's kind of game, since it was a gritty crime game with foul language, abusive treatment of women, and cop killing. Microsoft had a corporate image to maintain and, like Electronic Arts, it avoided that category."

(Sony Fanboys: Don't take hostility to this article because it would of been the same outcome if Microsoft would of taken Rockstar's offer.)

Unlike the mainstream forums, we're gritty, crazy sociopaths. And still approved by Rockstar. Most GTA Sites cater to a younger, softer audience (Zidane?), as opposed to this forum, which caters to bi-polar grandmothers with too many cats (Pyro?).

smile.gif Pretty interesting piece. Missed opportunity for those guys... ah well, life's full of 'em.

One nitpick, because I'm a grammar Nazi... It's "would HAVE," "should HAVE" and "could HAVE," not "would OF," "should OF" and "could OF."

I know, I suck. But I may as well rescue the English language, one website at a time. (Don't even get me started on bloggers who spell "whoa" as "woah." It's "w-h-o-a," peeps.)
