As someone who often has to trail through a host of spam comments, I sympathise with Rockstar on this one. After Hurricane Sandy delayed Rockstar's well laid plans to release the second Grand Theft Auto V trailer, fans of the series have been spamming Rockstar's official site for info on the trailer's release. Rockstar has now politely asked these folks to just... ease off the gas a little.
"We know you're all very excited for the next GTA V trailer, and we'll have more info to share with you all on that very soon," said Rockstar, on its official site. "Anyone that continues to spam the comments thread of this post with demands will however have their messages removed and their commenting priviledges suspended. Thanks for your patience and understanding."
It's sort of simultaneously nice and super assertive. I could learn something from these guys.
Rockstar has also officially kicked off pre-orders for Grand Theft Auto V in the UK and the US, partnering with some of the specialist retailers there. No details for Australia yet, but I'm sure if you walked into EB right now the staff would find a way to make it happen. Those guys and girls will take a pre-order on anything.
Would you like to pre-order 'Metal Gear Solid 7: Solid Snake On Ice' set for release in 2017.
Sure. Why not.
