I have an update for everyone - Read it here

The short of it is Rockstar confirmed with me this morning, among other things, that weather effects will be in multiplayer.

i guess this is a good place for this but i have a few questions about multiplayer.

1. in the screens you see over the players heads things like "RS NYC 1" with a red dot im guessing it stands for rock star new york city player number?, but anyway is that just some names rockstar used while playing multiplayer and taking the screenshots or will everyone have names like that above their heads during multiplayer? or will it be our online names for psn and the xbox 360? im hoping itll be our online names.

2. also ive read how the whole city will be open in multiplayer so im wondering if in all modes the opposite team can see your icon or whatever on the mini map. being that the city is so huge it seems like if u cant see where the other players are it could take awhile in some of the game modes to even find the other team. but then again if the mini map does give away your position i guess stealth is out. but im sure you can maybe choose some ways to change some or all of this in the options screen.

what you guys think would u rather know where other players are and let them know where you are at all times on the minimap or would u rather have to find them and they find you thanx.

It will show your psn name or live name. Usually when companies are testing multiplayer they use names like "RS NYC 1" because the developers and people from rockstar don't want their live names or psn names to be revealed. Imagine how many friend request and messages they would get if they used their actual online name.

During modes like team death match they keep people in the specific area by making the weapons only spawn in that area.

I just realized that matchmaking must be a part of multiplayer. I read on the forums where people were concerned about whether or not matchmaking would be in or if you would only be able to play with your friends. We'll if one of the achievements is Kill a R* Dev in Multiplayer then how would that be accomplished if there wasnt matchmaking? Still seems bizarre that there would be such an achievement, think of all the people who will be playing, i would be pretty pissed if i had just that achievement to get and i had to sit and wait till i got paired up with a Dev!

That's the beauty of it. R* basically controls who gets 1000 achievement points in this game. It totally shoves it in the face of all those achievement whores.

If I happen to find a dev, I will befriend him.

After a while, I'll shoot him in the head when his gaurd's down. But that will probably never happen, or I will never know. They did have a lot of devs working on this game, though, who knows maybe randomly one day you'll just get that achievement out of nowhere. I can imagine how that might go down.

"Awh, man, I just got let sleeping rockstars lie achievement. Hey, EVERYONE! So-and-so is a developer!"

Everyone: "Get 'im!!"
