Made my girlfiriend watch the 2nd and tell me, without spoilers, if it looked good. Apparently it did!) and news articles (though that is not easy). I still know things I wish I didn't, like 3 protagonists etc. and I know it's a bit sad but GTA is the one game that makes me feel like a kid at christmas, I think I know what I'm getting but don't want to find out all about it until I've got it in my hands... it makes having it so much better.
Valve could learn a lesson from this by saying "Yes we are working of Half Life 3. It IS going to be awesome. But we are not going to tell you anything. Whatsoever. Be patient. Trust us. It will be worth it."

"We haven't announced the possibility of a downloadable version for GTAV, but of course the game will be available in stores for PS3 and Xbox 360." Would you prefer a disc-less GTA 5?"
I always buy new copies of my Xbox 360 games and am a little confused as to why the downloadable version of games on Xbox live are usually set at the same price as the Full retail version of the game ? (Unless there is a specific promotion)
As it doesn't include the same production cost and a retailer doesn't have to make their cut, if they were say £5 cheaper then I would find the download option a lot more appealing, yet with the convenience of online retailers posting to your door and a lot of supermarkets also selling games when you buy your groceries then I will always get the retail version which gives me the option to let others play or has some return value when I trade it in at my local game store or sell on a well known auction site.
If it's a franchise I really love I also like to have the nice little manual that comes with it though this is becoming a dying art of late.
