My thoughts:

So far, i’m really not impressed with the news up to this point. There is still no mention of heists or casinos or anything. What part of this Next-Gen version of the game is supposed to “Blow My Mind”? If you want to blow my mind release more cities, improve the performance of the Online Portion of the game,  improve the balance of multiplayer, FIX (not patch) all these loopholes and security bugs in your code, create the FULL EXPERIENCE of single player in Online mode instead of giving us a watered down version of it.  A lot of blockbuster titles are being released in the coming months, I think Rockstar needs to step it up in terms of delivery for me to stay interested. But, I will reserve full judgement until I get more information

Oh, and btw, here is the new trailer for Next-Gen GTA:
