As you probably all know, earlier on this week, Rockstar Games flew myself and the other big GTA fansite webmasters (Chris from TheGTAPlace, Adam, Jevon and Blair from GTA4.net, Kyle and Casey from GTAGaming and Gerald from GTAWH.com) to New York City to preview The Lost And Damned. While I was out there, I kept a sort of mini-blog which I've now posted on the website. It's slightly different to last years trip which I wrote after I got back. This time the content was actually written not long after the events happened. As you can imagine I had an amazing time, but to find all about it, read my write-up!

I've also uploaded about 30 photos from the trip too. Read the 4 page feature article and view the photos with the links below.

Part 1: Outbound
Part 2: Arrival
Part 3: Tuesday
Part 4: Final Day
Part 5: Photos



And remember... Get The Lost And Damned. It's awesome!

I can't believe you have a Gta IV themed Elite...

Awesome write up. If you're going to cover all R* games then does that mean we are going to get a new domain?

What would happen if your new Elite got the RROD? Those cheap bastards at Microsoft would probably send you a letter saying that it could not be fixed, but you can have a refurbished one. Haha

By the way I can't wait to hear about the secret. I fucking hate secrets, but at least I know that I will find out. I just hope you post it has news on the front page so I won't miss it.

Haven't quite decided yet. We may just stick to Grand Theft Auto, but make news posts about other games from Rockstar as well. Still planning it out.

Psy did you manage to ask about Manhunt 2 on PS3/360? or L&D on PS3?

It sucks if I need to go and get another console just for the 2 GTA titles alone. I bought a Wii and PS3 as it is.

I am a huge fan of GTA and Manhunt and have never understood why the guys at Project Manhunt never got the kind of attention the GTA sites do, any idea?

It's because Manhunt never got the kind of attention GTA does.

Yeah maybe, but in some ways it seems to be you would want to expose that game more since less know about it if you know what I mean. I think those guys do a good job, there was a period of years where they kept the community of Manhunt together better than Rockstar did.

There is no chance for Lost and Damned or the next episode to come out on the PS3. They are exclusive property of Microsoft, and unless Microsoft and Sony work out a deal (which they won't), they will never see the light of day on a Sony machine.

And Manhunt is rather old, the chances of it coming out on a current gen console is slim to none. I would expect a Manhunt 3 possibly, but Manhunt 2 would be so out of date.

Although you're probably right...

In a year or so almost everybody who wants The Lost and Damned are going to have it and there won't be any more suckers who buy new consols just to get it, if you're that desperate you'll get a 360 in the next few months.

But my point is that in a year Microsoft won't be making any real money of TLAD, so then they could release it for the PS3 and the PC so that Rockstar can make even more money. They make enough money as it is already but when people got a taste for something they want more of it.

I have a 360 so it doesn't really matter to me, but I feel sorry for the people out there with no 360 and a huge love for GTA. The Xbox was the last consol to recieve GTA so it's not very loyal of Rockstar to the gamers to sell out to Microsoft.

Anyway, exclusive games ARE stupid!

All tolled, Microsoft is going to make a fair bit of money out of LaD. Money from the expansion, money from the people who've bought a 360 for the expansion, money from people who've bought the original GTA IV on the 360 for the expansion, money from extra games sales from people who've bought the console for the expansion... it just goes on. And don't forget there's going to be a second pack like this, probably within the year. They might not make $50 million out of Marketplace downloads alone but altogether they probably will.

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?).

Don't become a total whore for them by going all-rockstar all the time. that'd be a ton of free publicity just for getting some free gifts and shit. cool that you got that stuff, and a plane ticket and what not, but don't let them take advantage of you. they can afford it, so if they want a lot of extra publicity, let them pay for it. you already do enough as it is.
