Trailer countdown on Television?

Came accross this entry a while ago.
http://planetgrandtheftauto.gamespy.....php?id=118366

Quote:
It aired from 2:00 a.m. until 2:30 a.m. Eastern time. It was reported that the trailer countdown clock aired on the channel after the television show That '70s Show. The countdown clock hits zero next week right when two episodes of That '70s Show begin to air. Clues, perhaps?

Great coverage Asif.

Rockstar have been taking a completely new approach to marketing lately, since Donovan left.

There is supposedly a band from the late 80's+ that's in the game.

Expect lots of Michael Caine movie references if it is 70's London. Italian Job, Get Carter, etc. etc. Still, wasn't Driver: Parallel Lines partly set in the 70s? Seems strange that R* would copy them, especially seeing as there's no love lost between GTA & the Driver series.

Speculation has been saying GTA IV will be in London.

Personally, I doubt it will be in London.. I'm unsure about the whole 70's thing, but I don't think so.

Chances are the fact that That 70's Show is on during the "suspected" airing of the trailer is just a co-incidence. This has already been blown out of the water.

While this is interesting, I don't think of it as a clue of sorts. Just a spot in the airtime that Rockstar can advertise GTA IV.

The whole 1970's-to-present time thing was already done in Driver: Parallel Lines. I myself am really expecting a modern day city based on Chicago (I even think the "IV" font on the website is called Chicago).

That 70's Show ended for real because the characters went on to other things and last year's finale showed 1980 in the license plate. Plus, it's based in Wisconsin, not Boston, where'd you people get that from? Wisconsin as a state is neighbors with Illinois and that's where is Chicago is. That's about the only thing I can possibly get from this. But I still think it's nothing to get excited about, unless you want to watch the trailer on TV which might not be a bad idea with R*'s severs being bogged down on trailer release day.
My post on page 2 there (GTAF) pretty much sums it up.
