First to post doesn't always mean first to find.
Haven't we seen that shot before, though?
No we haven't, the reason why I'm so late posting is because: I'm a dumbass. I'll explain...
I subscribe to an RSS feed of Google News search for "grand theft auto" (link)
And I did in fact read the NYTimes article when it was posted, (at the time of posting this the link to the NYTimes article is on page 3 of that google news link above.)
I thought from the thumbnail it was just another trailer screen cap, only today when I saw other sites like GTA4.net had posted it that I realised it was indeed a new screen (I actually watched the trailer again to make sure, and we don't see the train from the angle shown in the screenshot, so it's definitely new. And I'm not sure, but I don't think it's been in any magazines yet either, I maybe wrong though.
@ganich: I appreciate you posting in the GTAIV forum to inform our users about this, but as you now know, I had already seen the article, just wasn't aware the screen was new at the time (Plus, I was hardly expecting NYT to even have a digital screenshot, sites like IGN are usually the first with them assuming there's no "fansite exclusives" this time round).
As you can see from many of the news posts you read on thegtaplace.com. I do give credit where credit is due - whether it be members of GTAF posting magazine scans, another website with an exclusive article, or whatever... hope that explains everything
And it's a pretty menial thing anyway, not like it's an awesome high definition screen showing something we've never seen before. We all need to lighten up and sit tight for the next batch of info/screens!
Thanks, i understand..peace
