    • Three playable characters which you can switch between "at nearly any time".
    • Each character has their own specific abilities and story arc, with all three stories intertwined.
    • Camera zooms out to a "Google Earth-style" perspective when switching characters.
    • Character 1 - Michael, an ex-bank robber in his early 40s who retired after making a deal with the FIB. He has two teenage children and hates his wife Amanda. He's also the narrator of the original GTA 5 trailer.
    • Character 2 - Trevor, a former war veteran and a "drugged out psychopath". Has flight experience.
    • Character 3 - Franklin, details unknown.
    • Certain characters from GTA IV and Episodes From Liberty City will also make an appearance. Rockstar's Dan Houser says we'll never see characters from the PS2 era, though. "The five PS2 games are one universe, and this is the high definition universe, so they don't co-exist," he says.
    • No major actors cast as any of the main characters.
    • Big advances to lighting and shader model. Greater draw distance.
    • There will be a "vibrant and fun" economy, but you won't be able to buy property.
    • Heists and bank robberies are a big theme to the game.
    • Improved vehicle handling and physics - "The cars hold to the ground better... It feels more like a racing game," Houser says.
    • More vehicles than in any GTA to date, including BMXs, mountain bikes, road bikes, dirt bikes, cars, trucks, helicopters, planes, ATVs and Jet Skis, but vehicle manufacturers are still fictional.
    • Improved shooting and melee combat. Melee combat "never going to be as big a deal as shooting," though, warns Houser.
    • Los Santos is described as a "huge and diverse city", combining the best of Red Dead Redemption's "large open expanses" with GTA IV's "densely packed urban environment".
    • GTA: San Andreas was about gang culture. GTA 5 is about capturing the "contemporary culture of LA".
    • A variety of different side missions and "more sophisticated" minigames, including yoga, triathlons, Jet Skiing, base-jumping, tennis, and golf. There's a full golf course in the game. You can go scuba diving along the coastline of Los Santos, or do yoga in one of the game's parks.
    • Each character will have unique hobbies - "one or two key minigame activities per character".
    • No RPG-like player customization as found in GTA: San Andreas, but you can customize the clothing of each character.
    • GTA IV's romance feature has been removed.
    • Players can make friends and hang out with certain NPCs in the game, just like GTA IV.
    • GTA IV's mobile phone returns, but a lot of its features have been altered. You'll use it to access the internet.
    • Dynamic missions - hidden missions dotted around the game world. "Going off-road in the desert, you may come across two parked cars and a sea of dead bodies around them... Investigate if you want."

    quick summation ;p

    Can be too young to play GTA, but never be too old!!!

    Here's another summary... from www.gtav.net

    General Information:
    There are 3 playable main characters. Their names are Trevor, Franklin and Michael.
    You can switch between them at any point when not on a mission. When you switch, the camera zooms out into the sky and then back down to the character you switched to.
    You can switch to another playable character during missions where they work together. This happens instantly.
    Some missions will only have one of the main characters, whereas in other missions it may be two or all three together.
    Each one has its own personality, motivations and skillset. When you're not controlling them, their lifes continue and you may be surprised to see what situations they find themselves in when you switch back.
    Each character has his own story arc.
    Of the main storyline missions, there'll be several complex missions focussed on heists in style of "Three Leaf Clover" from GTAIV.
    Some characters from GTAIV will make an appearance in V. Niko won't be one of them.
    During research, Rockstar took over a quarter million photos this time!
    Census information and vehicle sales data were used as a guide to depict the game world.
    Big advances in the game's lighting model with vast increases and advances in draw distance and levels of detail.

    Features:
    You can flip off other characters in the game, and see interesting results dependent on who you're flipping off.
    Vehicle physics have been updated. "The cars hold to the ground a bit better". It now feels more like a racing game, compared to GTA IV where they felt "big and boatlike".
    After a hiatus in GTAIV, Ammu-Nation is back!
    A lot of new side activities, including yoga, jet sking, base-jumping, tennis and golfing on a full golf course!
    Rockstar felt that dating wouldn't fit in this game and have stripped this feature.
    Mobile phone will return, but friends won't be calling as often as they did in GTAIV. It will be more streamlined and used for things like emails and Internet browsing.
    Random character encounters throughout the map, much akin to those in GTAIV - but this time there's a greater variety and they're fully motion captured.
    Dynamic missions, similar to Red Dead's "Unique World Events" make a return. Examples include characters with broken down cars, a hitch hiker, or two parked cars with dead bodies around them - which you can investigate to initiate dynamic missions.
    Dynamic "state machines" were coded in the game, allowing non-playable characters to go about their daily lifes. For example, you may see gardeners and cleaners waiting at the bus stop in the morning, and then find them tending the gardens and houses in the game's fictional Beverly Hills later on in the day.

    Locations:
    GTAV's game world is bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas and GTA IV combined!
    Fully explorable Mount Chiliad
    A military base
    Salton Sea region
    Wine country
    Wilderness
    Fully explorable ocean floor along the coastline

    Vehicles:
    Most vehicles in a GTA game to date, including - but not limited to:
    BMX
    Mountain Bikes
    Road Bikes
    Dirt bikes
    Planes
    Variety of cars and trucks
    Helicopters
    ATVs
    Jet Skis

    Character Profiles:
    Michael
    Michael is a retired bank robber, who made a deal with the FIB and is currently in the witness protection program.
    Lives in a mansion in Rockford Hills (based on real-life Beverly Hills).
    Married to wife Amanda, and has a teenage daughter named Tracy and teenage son Jimmy.

    Trevor
    Former military pilot
    Lives in a trailer in Blaine County (desert).
    Used to work a few bank jobs with Michael back in the day

    Franklin
    Early 20s, works at a luxury car dealership.
    In the demo, he was driving around Vespucci Beach in his 9F (equivalent to Audi R8).

    March I think. Despite having a playstation myself I've heard the xbox version would be the way to go as it has more RAM. Or better yet, get a top end PC so you can mod it.

    Awh man, can't wait to play this game!

    Although, the three person character swapping thing seems a bit ridiculous.

    DLCs for 4 work out that way and it was a decent idea.

    More Information from the Guardian
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology...-preview-gta-5

    SUMMARY-
    Underwater world (with underwater caves) and diving equipment confirmed.
    Side-missions similar to Taxi, Ambulance and Vigilante will be back but "probably not identical to the ones in previous GTAs" because they wouldn't fit in with the 3 main character personalities, but the "three will have odd jobs to do".
    Trevor will be the skilled helicopter pilot, Franklin the skilled driver and sniper, Michael the "smooth operator", skilled and versatile.
    Franklin is looking for a mentor and he finds one in Mike after they meet during one of Franklin's repo man jobs.
    Trevor is inspired by the typical GTA player that only roams around the game creating havoc, death and destruction.
    Mission types will vary among "big and small events , explosive, infiltration, super spectacular, family issues, invasion, hostage recovery, heists and robberies. Plus classic GTA missions but updated and improved."
    Cover mechanics have been greatly improved and cover will be very important in the gameplay.
    About the economy, Dan Houser says: "You will be able to spend money to buy interesting and fun things like expensive toys. We are still working on the economy but it will be a strong element in the game and players will be eager to make money to spend money. Something along the lines of "I went through all of this to make all this money and now I'm going to spend it on this crazy item."
    Dynamic music during missions (similar to games like L.A. Noire)
    No co-op for single player missions, but co-op modes will be featured in multiplayer.
    Big focuss on multiplayer with a lot of content to keep players busy.
    The song Radar Love was heard playing on the in-game radio.
    Alamo Sea is the name of the Salton Sea like area.
    Radial menu to select the 3 protagonists.
    Switching in missions partially scripted - meaning, at times character switching will happen automatically.
    In final part of a mission in the demo, the player can decide which character to use.
    There are multiple different endings in the storyline which depend on the choices you made throughout the game.
    The storyline takes around 25 hours to complete.
    Map open from beginning, with the exception of some protected areas.
    A certain amount of money will be needed to gain access to some missions.
