Massive Advertisement.. Once Again By Rockstar



Article on Kotaku

Rockstar has done it again. Another one of their huge GTA advertisements covering the side of this NYC building. They had previously done this with San Andreas, except not in NYC.

Do you think Rockstar were regretting this when New York started to complain about the game? Imagine the exects "Well, if they don't like us now, they aint gonna like what we got planned next week".
They also done this with liberty City Stories, had the Boxart on a big building, I don't think it was in new York though, I'm not sure about Vice City Stories but they had Billboards over here in the UK for VCS.

Nah, Rockstar isn't like that. They do whatever they want regardless of what anyone else thinks. What could "New York" do to them anyway?

Well as I said, they've done this in the past for other games

Yeah true, I mean they've never advertised on TV 7 months before a game is released. This can only mean we can expect great things from this game, as we've all basically assumed already.

YESSSIRR! R* is good about massive advertisementz especially when they've got something to shoc the world with something we've never seen before. I live here in Los Angeles and i will tell you in 04' when SA was scheduled to be released in oct. me and my friend were walking from 7/11 one morning at about 2:30 am mid summer and we discovered a street team full of poster boyz putting up giant SA posters everywhere and they gave me and my friend one, i mean like this poster was a huge almost 4 feet high, not to mention giant ad'z they put downtown on the side of wide buildings like the one ST posted. But this is the first time R* has started this early, and i dont think we should take this light.

Damn that's a big ad. It's true though, we usually don't get ads/info/trailers this early. This is probably because they're excited what GTA IV has to offer.

Cool, I hope it can live to the hype. I hope they get sky writers.

Hahaha, now that would be damn cool, and probably the most original way of advertising ever, and would draw literally everyone's attention (in the area in which the skywriting is done).
