GTA 5 in-game TV station???
There seems to be a consensus that an in-game TV station would be a great idea because this could allow you to watch the police chases that you are involved in, which will be filmed by those who are doing the chasing. There has even been a suggestion of an MMO route for GTA V, which would make a new TV feature ideal because you would get to see other players on it.
These rumors have only been sparked off since we learned that Take-Two has registered ‘GTA TV‘ and ‘Rockstar TV‘ and have both been described as the same thing, which you can see for yourself in the previous links. It’s hard to know what Rockstar is planning here, as they could either offer something truly unique to the latest game from the Grand Theft Auto series or it could just be a tactical move.
We did find one idea alarming and that is yet another piece of standup routine by Ricky Gervais, yes he is good but the comedian doesn’t go with GTA in any way. There is another idea that could be of interest to fans of the franchise and that is a TV channel on the Rockstar website, which could allow you to upload your own cool in-game content direct to the website.
It has been suggested that some sort of video editor allowing you to export to YouTube could be why these two names have been trademarked, but the fear is that both the Xbox 360 and PS3 are not powerful enough for a replay feature although we are not too sure on this claim.
All this speculation is good but what we really need is another trailer and we already know the second trailer is around 2 months away. This does make things a little difficult because fans of the game were hoping for something a little sooner, as all they have had to go on is just one video teaser and a huge amount of gossip.
GTA V with some sort of TV tie-in is just one of a long line of rumors; others include the possibility of modding in the game, characters, mini games, a release date and so much more.
