OK fellers.

I have been brainstorming some things with Eagle and Joey in terms of how to connect the two consoles so that we are really one group that works together.

So basic premise is that the city that you operate in, will be different than the city the PS3 operate in. So instead of RP we are in same city but never see each other, instead the two cities can cooperate on business together such as smuggling, import/export and jobs that require actions in two cities.

Since Los Santos reps the city of Los Angeles, was thinking of finding a city that was very much like LA (i know not many are) that we could chose to represent that city the Xbox players use.. essentially what i mean is maybe Oakland is the city we choose for Xbox, then we modify the name slightly to match Los Santos, ie Los Santos and Oaxland, X for Xbox..

So lets brainstorm some ideas that will fit in with the RP, a city like Los Angeles, from a quick look i think that the seemingly similar ones are:

San Diego

So please submit your ideas or modified names on this and lets try and make it fit the scenario.

I type fast, and i type a lot of words per day. So my spelling of words like 'You', will often be incorrect.

Another City to consider would be Las Vegas. Huge mob influence and a city that is only a 5 hour drive from LA. It also exists in San Andreas as Las Venturas. Also San Feiro exists as San Francisco.

What about San Barco. Barco is spanish for boat, and San Diego is known for being a naval base.

San Pinto. Las Paulo. Redwood. San Xosé (Xose is Galician for Joseph, Joseph in spanish is Jose, inspired by San Jose). San Flota / Los Armada (Spanish for fleet as in Naval)

The way I have looked at it since I got here is that LS and LX are in different universes. Though sometimes we cross the universe to do business, we don't spend anytime in the other (obviously because it isn't possible) but the fact that they have the same geography, weather, people etc it only makes since that we accept the situation we are in. Though it may seem like an improvement to try and Base LX on a different city and give Xbox players more individuality, it would only; in my opinion, take away the authenticity from the Xbox players. I mean yeah in general that doesn't make much sense, especially for non-american players, but imagine pretending London is Manchester, or pretending Toronto is Nova Scotia, it would take away authenticity. A name change wouldn't offend me as an american, but in my opinion it wouldn't fit like Los Xantos.
