New York Times on GTA IV Music Programming


Here’s what the New York Times had to say in an article yesterday about Rockstar’s latest and greatest Grand Theft Auto IV:

At least as impressive as the city’s virtual topography is the range of the game’s audio and music production, delivered through an entire dial’s worth of radio stations available in almost any of the dozens of different cars, trucks and motorcycles a player can steal. From the jazz channel (billed as “music from when America was cool”) through the salsa, alt-rock, jazz, metal and multiple reggae and hip-hop stations, Lazlow Jones, Ivan Pavlovich and the rest of Rockstar’s audio team demonstrate a musical erudition beyond anything heard before in a video game. The biggest problem with the game’s extensive subway system is that there’s no music underground. (Too bad there are no iPods to nab.)”

Here’s commercial for GTA IV’s European release featuring LCD Soundsystem’s “Get Innocuous” off Sound of Silver.
