We had heard rumors that the next Grand Theft Auto would be featured on the PS3 and be based somewhere in Europe, but now a print mag has offered up a slightly more believable take on things.
PSM has claimed that a Rockstar representative told them "that GTA4 will be set in Europe and span across six different cities." The idea of six cities in a next-gen GTA would certainly expand on the multi-city deal in San Andreas, but no official Rockstar confirmation has been given concerning this, so definitely take this with a grain of salt.
While you consider this latest rumor, feast your eyes on some nice city renders purportedly from the mysterious game in question, but originating in a Nintendo forum post. Yeah, fat chance they're real, but they are easy on the eyes. A GTA like that sure would be nice. [Update: pics actually from an AutoDesk demo. Thanks, Johnny!]
