idea for how the radio system might work

a thought on the radio system , i was thinking wouldent it be cool if there was like a record store on the game that you could go into and it would bring songs that are online up and you could download them and listen to them or a plug and play mp3 player system where as soon as u plug it in new songs are added to the ones in the game. finaly live streaming of radio stations on the net perhaps you have to tune your own radio in

thoughts, comments?

This is one thing everyone seems to want, but I don't like that. Think, the game is set in late 2007, so if it has live streaming stations and you still play this game in 2010 it's gonna be weird with everything being 2007 but the radiop blasting out songs from 2010. The shop Idea was done in True Crime, and it worked well ish, but not good for a Replacement of the GTA radio, maybe as a Custom Track station, you could browse the playlist of the radio stations and choose which ones the custom track player will play in full without Ads or DJ comments. Otherways the radio could be improved is work on the equalizer more, so it gives a greater effect between cars, and add static and interference when you are in tunnels, underground or in a high eletric static charged areas. Also improve upon the San Andreas Dynamic radio system to make it works with better codecs and allow cross-fading. Apart from that they should stick to the usual format of 1 CD worth of songs per Radio Station and have around 11 or up it to 12 (Two could be talk like in Vice City).

i like the idea of plugging in your MP3 Player and using the music on there.
But the radio stations really wouldnt work.

Good idea, though.

Didn't it say you can hear the radio station poeple are listening to when they go past, in one of the reviews? cuz if it did, it would sound like normal radio and possibly custom soudtrack are back.

Kinda like SR.
if you jump out of your car, you will still hear the radio.

# You can feel the bass of passing cars, and hear the radio that they're listening to when it goes past.

Yeah.. They could add heaps to it.

Possibly have some stereos don't work in cars.. Or maybe a cracked speaker.

I like the idea of the I pod.

it would be cool like stated as saints row, they had a custom track, where u went to the record store and bought songs to put on your list, but it would be cool to actually use music from your 360, like upload songs from your 360 to your custom list

Not really big on that idea. R*'s always come through fantastically with the radio stations in previous GTAs, so I think they should keep it like that.

Both True Crime: NYC and Saint's Row had the buying tracks idea, and in both I bought maybe one or two songs...I just don't really like it.
