And the award for stating the completely obvious goes to Rockstar Games who, in the light of the shiny new trailer released a matter of hours ago, has gone on to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is in "full development".
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.
A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.
Here's that video for you, one more time.
Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games explains:
Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe. We are incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans.
...what, don't tell me you were expecting some actual news from the Houser brothers? My goodness, what next?

I like video games and music and cups of tea and noodles and beagles and colour-cycling LEDs.
