I think so, ska.
I was wondering if we'd actually put car companies in here aswell, but hey.. what the heck..
Let's just do it.

There is so much that will be in this game I think we've only found about 45% of what will actually be in the game. What do you think?

Oh, I don't even plan on finding 20% right now.
In the early days I'd battle Zidane to find clues about San Andreas, but we couldn't have even imagined the final product.



I mean, we haven't even had 'The Well-Stacked Pizza Co.' yet. Or 'Bitch 'N Dog Foods'. There's so much info in the three 2-minute trailers, it's just crazy.

Your absolutely right, I don't know why that number came to my head. They are just previews, so I think your more right than we all know. Don't forget the Excelsior and the Seagull, in the Diletantte Commercial, thought they were interesting.

And are we now looking for vehicle names, or vehicle brands?

Yep. I'm trying to get a good shot at the excelsior..
I can't even see it's a blade, haha.

I'm not even sure what the seagull is, trying to find that out.
Some sort of restaurant or something.

I'm pretty sure I've read about the name beeing Gruppe Sechs(Like in group sex) Excellent thread idea though. Best one for a good while.
It actually says on the side of the truck Gruppe Six, as in Group Sex.

Bank of Liberty
Category: Financial / Bank
Real life counterpart: Bank of New York

The Bank of Liberty. Where all our dollars lie to rest for some terrorist or criminal junkie to grab. They'll be reappearing in GTAIV, just as expected.


There is Actually a better picture of the Bank of Liberty in the second trailer at about 31 seconds, it is covered some by trees but it is very clear and big.

GTA3.

1. gruppe sechs

The security van appears in the infamous Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City video games. Apparently a take on the well-known financial entity called "Goldman Sachs", while it is also phonetically similar to "Group Sex", a sex-oriented pun indeed. Very Rockstar style.

All the blue security vans in Liberty City belongs to the Gruppe Sechs company.

I use Windows Media Player Classic.
Don't let the name fool you - it's a classic version of WMP on steroids. It was made open source and has extended features, like screencapping, zooming and playing DVD's / DivX. And it's just one .exe

Great work on this thread, an interesting summary.

San Andreas was set in 1992, not 1993 but for RS Haul & Redwood cigarettes you've written "since 1993". Also the Redwood brand was actually mentioned in VCS (1984).

Hey Chi don't forget the stock market called BAWSAQ, I was reading Weazel News and saw it, of course it's a play on the NASDAQ.

Oh, please do, Rappo.
That's what it's for, anyway.

I'm thinking, there should be this system with all the companies in GTA, ever.
Okay, well maybe not all.. Might take a while, but still.

*Snap* I've got it!

here's the page that I'm working on: http://www.gtagaming.com/gtaiv/inc/information/parodies
It's not really a collection of all the companies in GTA IV but more like the parodies/references/puns that they use throughout the game. a companies page might be in order later. let me know if you have any additions

Will do.
I'll be using a new section under the current list for new additions to the list.
