Exclamation Peculiarities in the new boxart



Is it just me, or do the two things I pointed out seem kind of odd?

Nikos head could just be a simple error. The Mirrored licence plate, well other images on the boxart are mirrored too, just odd that the cop car behind it is ok.

It might be mirrored so when a cop looks in his rear-view mirror he can read the license plate easily.

Edit: But I don't even think license plates really are like that in NY, so that confuses me.

NY license plates do look like that. It's also cool that the cop cars plates are different like in real life.

Maybe when they were editing the boxart, They thought that it looked better when it was mirrored that way and the license plate is just like that because it was mirrored. They must have fixed the cop car licence plate after they mirrored the image and it looked like it wasn't done properly because the angle of the writing doesn't fit with the image, The way that the cop cars license plate is done, its like a kind of code for your in-game phone or maybe even a competition so look out for something thats to do with four numbers and its on one of the GTA artwork. OK.

I laughed when I saw the change. But good job on noticing, I saw it but didn't really pay attention to it. They changed the rear-veiw part too. I didn't notice that part.

That's cool, this forum actually made R* change something about IV!

I've checked and the one I downloaded the other day was the original unedited one, and I think I'm gonna keep it. It feels like a rare limited-edition recalled wallpaper now

The license plate is an obvious nod to the number of the beast.
