I agree with you on visual terms Eris Running Shoes looks alot like Adio or Etnies..
But the Eris company was built on the Nike mythology (Nike is a greek goddess, so is Erin - Nike is the goddess of victory, Eris is the goddess of turmoil and argument) and the fact that Nike used to have unacceptable labor regulations in it's factories (as did Eris; Child co-workers anyone? Haha)

Meh, I'll just put Etnies next to it.

Could you please instruct me on what is Dr. Ray's? Btw, I think you mean Dr.Jay's.. www.drjays.com
And I can't really find a real-life counterpart for Jim Sneakers indeed.. I'll just add 'em.

Maybe the RS Haul could represent U-Haul. I'm probably wrong on that one but the names are similar.

Oh yeah in the first trailer there is a corner side shop at about 30 seconds that says B.B.T it looks like a restaurant of some sort.
And there is also a type of Mp3 player called Nano360, probably a rip on the iPod.

And of course, GetaLife, the GTA version of Metalife.

And I believe it's spelled Kakogowa, the electronics brand.

And there is a Liberty City Telecom in the third trailer at 1:30.

And yet again another soda brand called Jo Jo's Diet Cola. 3rd trailer 1:36

Don't forget the Bank of Liberty.

I remember a bookstore called Pharoah on the GTAIV website, in the Diletantte trailer I believe.

Yep, they're all coming, haha.
Thanks for pointing those out.

Are you sure the restaurant says BBT?



It looks more like O.O.T. to me.


Btw, I can't find the Liberty City Telecommunications thing.
At 1:30, Niko is walking towards the camera after doing the shootout.

I'm not entirely sure now that you pointed that out, looks close to both, the resolution isn't entirely discernable.

It's when the helicopter is in the middle of the street, it's on the right in the signs. Check close. At about 1:31-2

This is cool, in the Packie Mcreary preview during the chase, in the background there is something called the Blitzkrieg-Mop. Wonder what that's about?

In the Steinway preview there is a brand called Benedicts liquor.

Also a place called Little Garbochefs in the Roman Bellic preview when he hits the ped.

JIM's
Category: Clothing Department /Footwear
Real life counterpart: None

Attention, all you sneakerfreakers out there? Do you honestly care about your footwear? Then come on down to JIM's, where footwear is our business.


Real life counterpart : V.I.M. clothing and sneakers

i dont live to far from it, but i could probably get a pic of the store when im around the avenue, and its store front has the same colors(red white blue) that GTA features up there^

Yes, the name is Gruppe Sechs, T-Virus.
I've already put that in my starterpost.
Thanks for pointing that out though, details make this list worth while.

I found some new items in the Diletantte commercial.

First we have the Excelsior, which is a nine bladed razor, lmao!!! It's shown when she wrecks on the phone.

Second I've found something called Seagull in the same segment.
