What irks me is the Rockstar reply to Newswire comments address the issue in a typical vague press release manner, and it seems even Strauss Zelnick of Take2 was adopting this line earlier about no pre-announcement about the announcement of the game, etc. However, it's relatively well known that both Sam Houser and Dan Houser cherish their anonymity behind the scenes without a media spotlight, as do other key figures who've gone on record about GTA in the past, I just asked them most recently to give us an idea where the next best press release will be?... Magazine, Internet, or....?
Nobody is asking them for their credit card numbers or their social security codes, or anything regarding their personal lives. Hell I personally couldn't give a lesser f*ck if one of the Housers was secretly moonlighting as a serial killer.
The purpose of releasing gameplays and demos (or at least some detailed information) prior to release is simply showcasing the game, letting the customers know what they are buying, it's something perfectly reasonable to ask for. Hell it's something we (or just me aparently) shouldn't even have to ask for. Trailers and press releases simply generate hype, they don't showcase the product itself unless that product is a movie.
