GAMING FIRM Rockstar has indulged its fans with a musical treat and rolled out its history of classic Grand Theft Auto in-game radio stations to Apple iTunes and Spotify.
Anyone who has ever played the game knows that a chunk of your time spent playing it is spent driving. Driving, while fun, has always had an extra element of enjoyment attached to it in Grand Theft Auto, that being the funny and eclectic radio stations it exposes you to.
Now, if you are not currently playing one of the previous GTA games, you can enjoy that music again via Rockstar Spotify and iTunes playlists.
It's not quite all there yet. There are presumably some licensing issues to tackle before the entire back catalogue is released, but for now what is there should satisfy avid GTA fans.
"As a service for all GTA fans on Spotify as well as for those who'd like to easily browse and find their favorite tracks from Grand Theft Auto radio history on iTunes, we've gone ahead and compiled the official set of playlists below, with tracks from all the music stations featured in Grand Theft Auto IV, Episodes from Liberty City, San Andreas, Vice City and more," said Rockstar.
"Please note that this is all the music from these stations that's currently available on each service - some songs don't yet exist on either Spotify or iTunes, but we're hoping to be able to add the original songs within our control where possible soon."
The list of stations is huge, there are 19 just for Grand Theft Auto IV and its Episodes from Liberty City, and as players will know, there is something there for everyone. µ
