Ok, lets keep it all here. Anything and everything you noticed, let us know. I've gone through the trailer frame by frame and found certain things, that are worth a look at. The ideas you through about can be speculations or even easter eggs. This will be similar to the x360a one, but with a fair bit extra and more detail.

It is now confirmed that the game will only take place in Los Santos and not the whole of San Andreas, so any theories on that we can chuck away now.

----------------

Lets start with the opening scene. The most noticeable thing here is the dog. Now this maybe a confirmation that animals might be in the game, but it could just be part of the cutscene.

Listening to the trailer we hear the main character wants to become a "family man". Is this him on the beach with his wife?

As x360a said, here we have some girls checking out the guys running. Will there be more of a interaction thing going on now. Maybe this kind of points towards your figure, thus meaning you maybe able to buff up like the old SA and people will start to notice?

Also notice the 'No Flash Zone' sign on the rails ;P

http://i39.tinypic.com/vqs9e0.jpg

Only thing noticeable here is the helicopter in the far distance (plus later shown in the cop chase scene). Seeing as we could fly these in IV, I'm taking a guess we can in V.

http://i40.tinypic.com/2hobsew.jpg

Ok, this is where we first spot the blimp in the sky. People have been asking for these to be added, so maybe R* have listened. It would be good to have a fly in one of these and even have a mission around them.

Also notice the golf cart? These were first introduced in Vice City but were missing from IV and a little hard to spot in SA. Looks like they've made a comeback!

http://i39.tinypic.com/2rz5hxs.jpg

Looks like we'll have some more stuff open to us in the way of sailing the sea's. Here we have the 'Speedophile' Jet-ski! In the past all we've got in the way of sea bearing vehicles were boats, so this is a nice change.

http://i43.tinypic.com/v8q6wz.jpg

Stab in the dark, but I'm going to guess this is Mt Chiliad. In SA, this was based just outside of Los Santos on the way to San Fierro. So I'm guessing this must be it.

Also, the guys backpack (middle person) looks similar to SA's parachute...

http://i43.tinypic.com/ionq82.jpg

Few things here. First is the convertible car. It's a nice little touch, as from the previous games it was either roof off or on. Next is the person actually driving the car.

CJ wore a tank-top, this guys wearing a tank-top - it must be CJ!? Personally I don't think it is, but I maybe wrong. I have a feeling it's just a normal NPC for the trailer.

Lastly is the white sign against the pillar that says 'Piecings'. Customisation?

http://i44.tinypic.com/350tfud.jpg

Like SA, it looks like we can drive around and into Mt Chiliard. It seems we have a but more of an open space, and some nice dirt tracks. Will the dirt bike make an appearance?

I don't really know what to think about with the wind turbines.

http://i43.tinypic.com/2uhyhsl.jpg

Not too sure on this image. Nothing is really given away. I looks like the houses may have more detail, and it also looks like these ones are up in the mountains.

Maybe doing some fitness stuff might be incorporated into the game?

http://i39.tinypic.com/2znzkhe.jpg

2 signs here. The first being 'Little Seoul' in the Downtown area which I'm guessing is a twist on China Town, but with a South Korean twist. The 2nd saying 'Los Peurta' which again must be an area with Los Santos.

http://i39.tinypic.com/1z3c7xh.jpg

Here we have Los Santos's 'Muscle Sands'. This is obviously based off Venice Beach which is situated in the Santa Monica area of LA, though we don't know the Los Santos area name yet, just the beach.

Again, will this play a role in some form of body modification?

http://i41.tinypic.com/69nwk8.jpg

Here we have a nice little interacting moment between two NPC's. It looks like the guy on the left tries to offer the upper class looking guy some form of deal, be it drugs or something, but as you can see he declines.

I wonder if this will be in the game as you walk down the street, people interacting with you, offering you things etc.

http://i43.tinypic.com/2m64z04.jpg

I have a feeling that this 'Mile High Club' building will be playing a story based role ni the game. You know some rich millionaire owns it and he'll need your help, so he doesn't get his hands dirty...

http://i40.tinypic.com/53jjup.jpg

Here's our first glimpse at what may or may not be our main character. A lot of speculation that it's very own Tommy Vercetti, and this could be right. Though at this very moment, no one knows!

http://i41.tinypic.com/20sf56u.jpg

Here's the confirmation that planes will be making a return.

http://i43.tinypic.com/4vfzib.jpg

So here's "Tommy" again. Gun in hand and gas mask, it seems like this is a short cutscene a mission. May I point out though, that 2 other people get out of the van they're in. Who are they and is one of them the character we'll be playing?

http://i39.tinypic.com/6yz9uf.jpg
http://i39.tinypic.com/21ah8jk.jpg

Up-n-Atom Burgers. Did Burger Shot go out of business. This brings me back around to the body modification.

http://i41.tinypic.com/faq1iv.jpg

Here we have, what looks like, the rough parts of town. It seems Los Santos will have a vast diversity of areas throughout it's city.

http://i39.tinypic.com/34od5kk.jpg
http://i43.tinypic.com/530poo.jpg

A few things here. Fist the house for sale. Will this be similar to the previous GTA's in where we can buy properties?

Now notice the bicycle against the side of the house. Again like SA, will these make a nice return?

Now the good bit, the house number on the curb - 2405. This relates to a few things, so let's point them out. The song used in the trailer was released on May 24 1968. Could just be an easter egg, but can it also relate to a release date?!

http://i40.tinypic.com/155sy37.jpg

PROSTITUTES!

http://i44.tinypic.com/24g4va0.jpg

Here we have our first glimpse at another plane, but this time it's a fighter jet. A great add if we can fly these!

http://i40.tinypic.com/2lc4efa.jpg

No one's mentioned this yet but - Hello, motorbike! Also not the guy getting chucked out off the bar. Again I feel this is another story mission cutscene and maybe our character is the one on the bike?

http://i40.tinypic.com/6ohogx.jpg

A great view here of Los Santos and it really shows off the size of the city and also the different districts! Also note the blimp again.

http://i39.tinypic.com/ohqsjn.jpg

Quick glimpse of the driver in the cop chase scene. Main character again?

http://i39.tinypic.com/2jalyiw.jpg

Here we have a tattoo'd guy being chased by the cops. Again, who is he. he doesn't look like "Tommy" or the other two guys I've pointed out... Though he is wearing similar clothing.

http://i44.tinypic.com/331deew.jpg

The infamous Vinewood sign, with another plane in the background, but this one looks like a private jet.

http://i41.tinypic.com/qsqowg.jpg

Final scene with the plane and blimp. This again shows of the scale of Los Santos. You can see the resident and what is probably the financial districts, as well as Mt Chiliad in the far distance. It looks like this maybe one of the biggest scaled GTA maps yet!

Great job. I saw the one on the x360a homepage but this looks good too. Jets are coming back hell to the yes!

Just one correction; Golf carts were in SA. Up near Pro Laps in Los Santos was a little fenced off area with a Golf Cart in it. You could also find them around, randomly.

EDIT: I've done my own breakdown and found very similar stuff to you.

Nice breakdown :p Lots and lots of information hidden in just under 2 minutes, mad.

See I couldn't remember... I remember the golf course in VC, but can't remember SA. I'll make the edit.

Something that nobody else seems to have brought up. The house that was put up for sale looks exactly like the houses on Grove Street in SA, which hopefully means we'll be returning to that area.

There seems to be quite a lot of body modification hints. Also, fuck Webb. I wore almost the exact same outfit as that fashionable black hipster last week.

Excellent topic! The hookers and their clothes give me a countryside feeling.

Its not Tommy and thats not Liotta's voice in the trailer. And i doubt its CJ either as the face looks different.
He might make a cameo but looking at Tommy's character? I doubt he lived past the 80's Early 90's maybe.

Thats clearly not Niko. People are trying too hard on this and again the voice sounds nothing like Tommy's and Liottas people have allready confirmed its not him.

The CJ and Tommy comparison is good, but like the other guy said, I think people are looking to much into this and just putting whatever to whatever. I think if Tommy came back they would for sure get Liotta back too. What star would turn down one of the best selling game franchises in the world? Especially being the lead.

Good breakdown though, I'm really excited for the Blimps, and driving in the dirt roads again, with dirt bike too :p

Can't forget the bikes too, riding my BMX down the high way again lol

Seriously one thing that is NOT Niko..Tommy looks similar though.

I can't see Liotta coming back not after the bad blood between him and Dan Houser over royalties. Same with the guy who voiced Niko, that's why there wasn't any new Niko material in the 2 follow up episodes.

Turth be told i would rather have a brand new character, with a new back story that suits the current times. CJ 's story takes place almost 20 years ago, i'm not from LA but is there much of a power/gang struggle with corrupt cops in today's world?

I'd rather see a character who was a decent guy but due to the GFC was driven to crime and now wants out but can't, or something like that.

Also notice the 'No Flash Zone' sign on the rails ;
I think it says 'No fishing'

It says, "NO FISHING ZONE" not "NO FLASH ZONE!" You really got fix some of the grammar in that post, OP. Other than that, I don't see anything in here that was not already mentioned.

I'd just like to point out that "Up-n-Atom" is a spoof of "In-n-Out" which is a burger joint found only in the western u.s. which is probably their reasoning for using there instead of burger shot.

That would be great if Tommy, CJ and Niko were all part of GTA V in some way. That really does look like Tommy, Vice City which was set in the 80s he looked around 30, and in the trailer looks in his 50s, so the age is about correct, maybe they are just trying to fool us.
