Good point.

Del Perro means "the dog" by the way.
And it's based off of the Santa Monica Pier.

So my guess is that they didn't want a whole region called "Pleasure" so "Del Perro" is the name of the region instead.

I wonder if they're supposed to remind us of:



Man, all those locations look amazing.

Edit: Y'all be wanting some high quality artworks of the dog guy and the girl being arrested, they're massive now.






The dog is called Chop and the cop is called Vasquez. If either appear in the game as characters, they're our first official names.

Just picked up my viewfinder and double-sided poster from my Gamestop!!!

Looks like they disregarded that November 5th rule.

I'm so excited for this because IV kinda felt like a disappointment. It was still a good game, but not San Andreas-good of a game.

I'll share my photo's of the pre order bonuses I got.

I'll start off by saying that I have been a long time GTA fan and have owned every single GTA game ever made.

Second I'll say what Jay-Z said in one of his songs "Can't Knock The Hustle".Which is exactly what I did and paid for each pre order with my own money.I visited and called 6 different Gamestop stores all were within 30 miles where I live.

I'm just really lucky that I have over 10 Gamestop stores in the city where I live.

So here we go:









This is how big a GTA fan I am.

I know there are a bunch other HUGE and probably even some even bigger GTA fans than myself.But the point I'm making is that I worked to acquire alll the pre order collectibles .I spent my time, effort, money, and car gas.

So I really don't care if people hate on me for acquiring all of the pre order collectibles.

To be honest, no body is going to "hate on you" for getting collectables but jesus christ.. I'd expect a speech like that to be made from somebody who just saved the world.


But anyway, this game is looking to be huge and ridiculously detailed and would love to see a 2nd trailer. Fuck you hurricane sandy.

I just said that because I know even with the pre order collectible bonus stuff.Some people on here and other GTA forums get mad & pissed over the stuff not being available to them or that it's limited.Heck some people on GTA Forums were pissed that only Gamestop is giving the pre order bonuses right now while other retailers like Target & Best Buy have not started taking pre orders and won't start until next Monday.

All the Gamestop stores I visited in the past 2 days told me they weren't breaking street release date on the pre orders and bonus items because R* emailed or called them and told them to start promoting the game in store and gave the go ahead to accept pre orders even as early as this past Thursday night.

I don't understand the point in pre-ordering something that you know they will have plenty of copies of. The last videogame I couldn't get a hold of on launch day was Pokemon Stadium - whenever the heck that came out, I was like 8 or something.

Still, those little viewfinders are pretty cool, and may be good for nostalgia purposes 10 years from now.

Same, i never pre-order games unless the pre-order comes with in-game content that is just too good to pass and that rarely happens in my case.

Even in those situations, i pre-order the game just a few days before its release.

I hear you guys and see where your coming from on the whole pre ordering thing.

There are positive and negatives to it.

The main positive is that by pre ordering you are guaranteeing yourself that a copy of the video game will be reserved for you at whatever retailer you may choose.Most places here in the US only require a $5 minimum deposit down on any games.Which really isn't much nowadays.Heck right now here in the US you can't get a decent burger from the usual fast food places for $5.A medium cup of your favorite Starbucks coffe or latte is more than $5.Gamestop at least is cool and they will let you cancel and get your deposit money back or you can transfer it to another pre order for a different game or use it towards whatever they sell at their stores.

Negative things that I mainly dislike are:

-Game companies and retail shops manipulate the system and are given different pieces of pre order in game DLC perks that are spread out over a few different retail stores.
-Pre orders are used to gauge feedback, hype, and projected sales #'s.

It's really about marketing, promoting the game and R* and retail shops trying to maximize the sales figures of a game like GTA V.

It is what is and really is up to a individual if they choose to reserve a copy of the game or if they want to chance it and hunt for a copy on release date.Other people for whatever reason choose to wait a few days, or months when the game review scores are out and the hype & excitement for a game has gone down a bit.Casual fans of a certain game like GTA V will even wait a full year or longer until a Game Of The Year version or Complete Version of the game is out that includes all of the DLC packs that eventually release after the main game release.

Just my 2 cents on the topic of pre ordering video games.

I could not get hold of gtaiv on release day

Hell, I even preordered on amazon and they didn't send it to me until a week or two later.
