A bit of GTA IV Soundtrack news...

May be...
Though I, personally, dont think that has anything to do with setting the game in New York.

It's all pointing to respectable report, but i would still only see it as a rumour.

Honestly, I wouldn't like to see a GTA set in real world. I just like it the way it was with III, VC and SA: imitation of real cityes, vehicles, locations...

Just because some songs by these guys MIGHT be in GTAIV doesn't mean it will be in New York, past GTA games have had songs from all around, Wave 103 is mostly British New Wave bands.

I have to agree with Ash, one New York band on the soundtrack doesn't mean anything in terms of location, and every other GTA is proof of that.

I wonder if Rockstar would really let this (or anything else) slip?

Then again, I remember things like the auditioning of voice actors for SA where we got the three character names: Madd Dogg, Maria & Maccer. And I think that was pre March 1st 2004. Also didn't Danny Dyer announce he was in SA well before we knew anything about it. *shrug*

I think it's quite strange how a lot of people seem to be pointing to New York as a possible setting. I mean, it's already been done in GTA III and Liberty City Stories. Remember that this will still take place in the "world of GTA" even though the game is going to be all new, Liberty City can't just disappear.

Just in case, I may try to track down some of their songs, just to get a hint of the soundtrack (possibly).

What this DOES say is that the game will take place in the late 80's and up.

I am dead sure it will not be in a real name place, you saw the uproar there was with how Haitian people were represented in Vice City.. imagine what there would be if it was named after a real city... R* would get sued by a city for defamation... not to say that other games have done this... but GTA is big business gets alot of attention... being sued by NY... well thats like a million Jack Thompsons running at you at once! aargh!

But that hadnt stopped other GTA-style games from using real cities such as True Crime series, The Getaway which even uses real licensed vehicles and these games also use racial stereotypes to progress the plot.

Honestly, I was more hyped for TCA than I was for SA.

The only thing that will ever beat my hype for VC will be my wedding day, possibly. No guarantees.

As to the soundtrack..just because they said they'd been contacted, doesn't mean they were.

Also, because they said they were, they probably lost out on that deal, if they actually were contacted.

Hmmm... I just want to point this out... GTA 1 had 3 cities, Vice City, Liberty, and san andrease, they where all in 1 install ment of a engine, and the last one (SA) had 3 citites, could it be possible, GTAIV will start in a WAY WAY WAY more complex version of Los Santos, the next one, complex SF, and Complex Las Venturas. The only problem with that is for gtaIV, Las venturas would have to be 3 cities... But in reality, I think it could be multily cities, big cities that are known like, chicago, salt lake city, atlanta ga, Washington DC, ect. Washington DC would be great, now that I think of it... Trying to sneak into the white house.. Great!
