Liberty City map revealed?

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 07:48 PM MDT | By Slim Trashman
An interesting discovery has been made by Bluespot, a user over at GTAForums. If you take a close look at the police boat (Predator) scene in the third trailer, the interior of one of the boats appears to reveal a sort of radar revealing what may possibly be the new layout of Liberty City in GTA IV. This scene takes place at approximately 1:24 into the trailer if you would like to take a look for yourself. The map shown here shares similarities with the geographical layout of the real NYC, leading us to even further believe that it is in fact Liberty City. Only time will tell for sure, we'll keep you posted.

Rockstar never told anyone that these shapes on a boat are the map of Liberty City. We'll have to wait for the map to be released otherwise and then we can compare to this and confirm it ourselves

Rockstar should do the same thing they did when san andreas was coming out, where they feature the map on their website and have small game play videos through out the map

I too would like to see that sort of thing, polelock. Having a new area of the map revealed every month, along with a trailer and some screenshots, was really an enjoyable way of learning about the game.

@antena, nah the HUD will still be there, health, armor, oxygen meters, money, weapons and the radar. How it will display though could change. For example, it could only be visible if you trigger an action (by pushing a button) that would require assisting displays to appear, in this case the HUD. Think about it like this, you're walking down the street, no HUD, then you hit R2 to begin scrolling through weapons, the HUD will quickly fade in so you can see which weapons you have. Another situation would be say you had just fallen from a relatively high height, upon impact the HUD fades in to display your health meter.
