GTA IV Trailer Wrap-Up

As 9 million copies of GTA IV are sold, and over $400 million in revenue will be collected, we want to review the 4 trailers used to promote the game during the last year. This is because I don't own a PS3. And these trailers are good. And the second one is simply great.

Trailer # 1: "Things Will Be Different"

When this trailer was released last summer, it seemed that GTA IV would be ready for Christmas. I was at South Street Seaport waiting for a ferry to Sandy Hook beach in Jersey. I was looking up at a monitor at a Game Stop store, and my jaw dropped. I'm sure Rockstar took care of Godfrey Reggio, Philip Glass, and Ron Fricke for this.

Trailer # 2: "Looking For That Special Someone"

Like the latest Star Wars trilogy, the second trailer is usually the better one, or in this case, the best. The editing is impressive for a video game trailer. The music is perfect. The song is "Arm In Arm (Shy Child Mix)" by The Boggs, a Brooklyn punk/electronica/rock band. Can't get it out of my head now after downloading it.

Walking arm in arm, and we're on our way.
Dressed in my best lest you guess my age.
Let your fingers linger through the coming day.
We're on our way.

Trailer # 3: "Move Up, Ladies"

Trailer # 4: "Good Lord, What Are You Doing?" A.K.A. "Everyone's A Rat"
