Sounds dope and all, but from what you posted, this is a GTA RIPOFF!!
It won't be original, and it won't be anything we haven't seen before.
GTA:VC all the way.. The originator.

Seems pretty scetchy..
* Stealing the whole concept from GTA3
* The nice graphics isn't nice yet, because it's far from a release date
* X-Box's attempt at copying GTA's sucess?

The game won't be innovative, and it will have the "rip-off tale" on it's name.
Maybe it'll be good anyways, but I'll go for GTA:VC any time of the day.

Oh for the love of hell,

So is every racing game ever created a rip off of the first racing game ever made?

Is every first person shooter in the world a doom rip off,

Its called a genre folks, GTA really broke some boundaries, and has basically become its own genre, because it doesnt fit into any other.

Its not like its gonna be the Exact same game, it most likely (reply to this in 2003 if im wrong) will expand and improve on most aspects of GTA, thats what happens in "Genres"

There are two upcoming "GTA Ripoffs" ... Streets of L.A. which is for the Xbox and The Getaway for the ps2... the getaway takes place in London England and has some promising things in it, but like most people here... GTA:VC is gonna rock

And it aint XBOX tryna bite cuz this game  True Crime: "Streets Of L.A" is also gonna be on PS2. Only thing is that tha Xbox is tha only system that supports tha Customizing your own Soundtrack thing. That means you can upload your own music onto tha game and drive around listening to your own shit. Smoke somebody and drive away bumpin Eazy E's "Boyz N Da Hood".


Good points about this game is that you can wonder around just like on Grand Theft Auto, but you're a cop so tha longer you just fuck around, tha more Crime rates get out of hand. You're mission is to stop tha Russian and Asian Mob.

You can shoot people from your car. It Cover's 400 Square Miles of L.A... and tha craziest part of all is that you can go to like a real Gasoline station in L.A and get a city map... and if you use the real life map, it will get you through tha game! That's some crazy shit... like everything is where it's supposed to be...

Even if it's multi-platform, it still snatches GTA's concept & idea.
Sounds dope though, even if being a cop all the time sounds boring in the lenght.

You sound like a X-Box dickrider.

1: The game will be on PS2 too, FOO!!
2: Why give the game credit for stealing Gta's concept?
3: Why give the game credit when they just started working on it, FOO?
4: X-Box owners will be happy with it?
Because they don't have the OG Gta?
5: PS2 owners will give it credit if it's a good game, otherwise not.

Damn, these X-Box owners hating on PS2.

stfu already,its not stealing the concept of gta alright?
its a fucking game genre, i guess since you dont understand that its a game genre,i guess all the football games out now stole the concept or the first football game ever,same with fighting games,platformers,racing games,etc

and i guess xzibit is stealing the concept of putting rap on wax from the sugarhill gang too right?get over it

It's not a genre.
It's a whole new concept made by Rockstar Games, and we will see many attempts at copying it.
It mixes 10 different genres, and they're trying to copy this mix of genres.
Wether it will be on X-Box or PS2 or both, it's still undeniable.
It would be the same if I released Zalo 2, with the exact same concept as Halo, just improved and with all the same ideas.

you could say that, but
INNOVATIVE is the key-word here.
