Grand Theft Auto is great, sure. Outside of the Daily Mail lot, everyone loves it. But Take Two wants you to see it more than just as “the ‘GTA’ company”.

How long to wait for the next Grand Theft Auto? Wedbush Morgan analyst Michael Pachter reckons you’ve got about a year to go.
“While we still expect a GTA game in calendar 2010, it is not clear that the game will be released before the end of Take-Two’s fiscal year ending October 31,” Pachter said today as he downgraded his rating on Take-Two stock from “outperform” to “neutral”.
Piper Jaffray’s Anthony Gikas recently said that he expects the next in gaming’s ultimate franchise to arrive in “FY ’11,” or the 12 months beginning November 1, 2010.
Add the two together and you have GTA V releasing in the fourth calendar quarter of 2010.
Or not, obviously.

Piper Jaffray’s Anthony Gikas has bumped his Take-Two target up to $15, from $11, saying in a note that GTA V is “expected” in the company’s fiscal ’11.
“Our confidence in the company’s profitability profile is improving as product flow for FY 2010 is greatly improved and Grand Theft Auto V is expected in FY ‘11,” he said today.
“Assuming no change to product flow, we expect the company will have 10-plus games that will sell over one million units.”
Take-Two is currently in its ’09 Q4, which ends on October 31. FY ’10 ends October 31, 2010. Mr Gikas here is saying GTA V will release sometime in the 12 months ending October 31, 2011.
That’s a long time to wait, isn’t it?

Rockstar does not plan on turning the Grand Theft Auto series into a movie franchise any time soon.
As a matter of fact, vice president Dan Houser says the prospect of one considered, and then quickly tossed aside.
“We don’t believe that the Grand Theft Auto games, which are massive in scope and structurally complex, can be adequately compressed into a two-hour movie,” he told the LA Times. “It seems obvious to us that maintaining the long-term integrity of any entertainment property has been dependent on not making substandard spin-off products to people whose primary interest is making a quick buck.
“If we ever decide to do a film, it will be because we have resolved our creative doubts, and while retaining enough control to ensure that if the movie is terrible, at least we will know we ruined the property ourselves.

We were lucky enough to get nearly 20 minutes with Realtime Worlds boss and original GTA creator Dave Jones at Develop yesterday, the result of which you can see after the break.
We talked almost exclusively about APB, Jones telling us when the game will release, how much it’s cost to make and going into good detail on the mechanics of the MMO itself.
Jones also gave opinion on the state of the GTA franchise, calling Vice City the “pinnacle” of the IP.
There’s tons more stuff in there. Enjoy.

Play Insights sent out a survey asking if a karma system should be implemented into the Grand Theft Auto series.
Over on the WiiSpace forums, member Da Ill One posted a screenshot of it, and this is what it read:
Do you think Grand Theft Auto would benefit from having a “karma” system or “good” vs. “evil” actions mechanism that allowed you to choose your overall path by doing good or bad actions, where those actions have an accumulative impact on how the game unfolds? When answering, please consider the idea of being “good” or “evil” and NOT the particular execution / how this feature would be implemented.
Granted this is a survey and does not denote whether Rockstar would include such a feature in the next GTA game, but the thought is still intriguing.

TV Judge Greg Mathis and filmmaker Matty Rich are teaming up to create game for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 called Mathis “Detroit” Street Judge.
The game is expected to be reminiscent of Grand Theft Auto – but with prison rape.
Mathis says his goal as a judge, and as a gamer, is to introduce consequences today’s youth and the best way to do that is through videogames.
“The main difference between our game and Grand Theft Auto is that players will have to deal with the justice system and consequences for their actions,” said Mathis.
“When you go to prison, you gain credibility when you come back on the streets. On the other hand, when you go to prison you can also be raped. So take your chances. We may see young people who make the wrong choice and go to prison and are assaulted repeatedly (in this game).”
The third-person open-world shooter takes place in the rough end of Detroit, where players assume the role of ex-convict La-Ron Washington. La-Ron has two strikes against him and if he messes up again, Judge Mathis will throw the book at him – if the Detroit underworld doesn’t get to him first.
“Video games allow you to obtain the fulfillment of [a violent] lifestyle without being in it,” he added.
