If San Andreas Stories came out, well the main character should be Sweet.

LOL id love it but how are you gonna fit such a huge game on a 1.5gb umd disc? lol <_<


1.8 GB actually, and it wouldn't be that hard.

What took up so much in San Andreas was the combination of the staggering amount of audio and and all the models/texture files.

The way Rockstar does the maps is very inefficient and shitty. (Not that their maps are shitty, just the way they are made) This is because everything in a GTA game is model. And I mean everything. While some things are easier to detail, using a textured-block type system like in Half-Life 2 in combination with models would be much easier to work with, much faster, and much more flexible.

So yeah, using textured blocks for the landscape and only using models for things like cars, people, guns, etc...in combination with good compression and it should be doable.

On the topic of fitting all of SA it would be possible, not due to compression or anything... scale is the keyword: everything must be rescaled, making all the terrain files, characters models and everything smaller in size on disk... also games can be run off of memory sticks, the only problem is securing the stick so people don’t wipe it and get a cheap stick with decent size; this can be solved in a multitude of ways; however these would require yet more of the redundant firmware updates.
You may know take into account compression which grows exponentially (quite literally as file size is all based off of base 2 [we count in base ten]) from year to year. The only sacrifices would have to be a few features, and maybe storyline length. Their may be some people out their who don't agree with my analytical views

Again, I highly doubt this. GTAIV should be the first game on PS3.

i think in SAS you're still going to play as CJ and Sweet. your beginning missions are going to be with CJ and win CJ goes to LC then it switches over to Sweet.

Character changes never happen in a gta game to date. I think it wouldnt be good as some people may find sweet a complete and utter dickhead..... :) (me). Brian johnson is the best idea ive seen. Never ever OgLoc tho Aka Jeff... Og Loc :D

It wouldnt be OG Loc as no one would ever take him seriously espically in the SA introduction video.

Yeah OG Loc would suck as a main character. I do also believe that San Andreas will be made some day. Like chris82 said it's doable even though I have no idea what he was talking about lol. Some great protaganist ideas have been already listen Brian Johnson, Ceasar, Ryder possibly but I'm not really looking forward to that. Possibly even T-Bone Mendez (Toreno's sorta bodyguard remember?), it should be set a good 2-4 years before SA (1992) and the storyline should be surprising and different from every other game (just saying that cause I can't really think of anything right now).

I would like it to take place after San Andreas and Hunters Quarry is full of water.
Also if it takes place after SA, I wouldn't want it to have much to do with Grove street. Maybe it would talk about Sweet and CJ being dead. Not actually saying, "They're dead" but saying something like ,"Ever since that leader of Grove street got his head blown off....." or something like that. Just implying, but not proving, that they're dead.
I might have said this but, I would like it to be about the mafia in Las Venturas.
Harry and Lee's Vice City Vacation. It ended terribly.

Cool never knew about that. Good idea C Blood, playing as one of the Mafia members controlling the casinos in Las Venturas would be cool. "Gangsta" theme wasn't my thing.

Yeah it was cool to try something new but I like Mafia better. R* might even surprise us and put something new in there.
