Next are several pieces of information starting with a report from Variety.com stating that Rockstar is switching its ZiT music partnership from Amazon to iTunes now that iTunes has gone DRM-free. Rumors have been flying the past couple weeks that the next GTA will be made for the iPhone, and this new partnership definitely helps that idea's case!

Game retailer Gamestop.com has also updated their page for The Lost and Damend Official Strategy Guide to reveal some interesting information about features in the DLC (including new random characters and side missions):
  • Missions: Maps and strategy for all missions plus complete coverage of the new Odd jobs, Bike Thefts, Gang Wars, Random Characters and other activities required to achieve 100% completion
  • Maps: Score health, armor and weapons no matter where you are. Our maps show you where to find them in every mission. Pick-ups, collectibles, places of interest…everything you need!
  • Secrets: our detailed collection of maps and descriptions reveal precise locations for all Sea Gulls hidden around Liberty City.
  • Vehicle Showroom: Details on every ride in Liberty City
  • Multi-player: complete coverage of the new modes of multiplayer

And finally, the official GTA IV website has been updated to include a piece on Congressman Thomas Stubbs. Stubbs, who will no doubt be getting a part in The Lost and Damned, apparently has a Twitter account as well, where you can follow all of his patriotic antics.

Thanks to -=}{oT~dEv1L 666=- for all the information!

That game guide comes out only in a couple of days... hm...

Gang wars? On rails mission(s)? Sounds like they're trying to emulate S.A. a little bit.

chrisandy: So GTA IV is not like San Andreas and half the community bitch, and when they bring back some features of San Andreas, you guys STILL put them down? Can Rockstar ever win? :P As for On-Rail missions, they were in VC and LCS too, LCS had a whole side mission dedicated to it. And a more advanced Gang War system was used in VCS, which included wars with Bikers.

I'm not saying anything negative about R*... they mentioned how there was an on the rails mission in San Andreas too, which a lot more people have played than the other games you mentioned. And it came out before those other games.

All I am saying is that it's an interesting return to some stuff that was in S.A. Why? I have no idea. I'm just making the connections.
