Grand Theft Auto 4’s music library getting pruned as licensing agreements expire

Decade-old game proves to have a dedicated fanbase as its music library is getting trimmed with licensing agreements expiring.

The story is too old to be commented.

In my opinion, this is crappy knowing that someone could go back and edit something you bought and paid for.
Other mediums lose their licensing all the time, like movies or TV shows, but no one goes to your home and takes your blurays/dvds.

The way I see it, this should only apply to new copies that are printed or sold digitally.

Completely agree, and that really should be how they do it if they must.

I agree, this what is happening now is just BS. Yet another knock against the online only / digital only future.

The only great about GTA4 was the soundtrack.

But you got suspect taste in games if your still playing GTA4 and I don’t care how good the mods are.

Knowing the MAFIAA, they would break into your home and steal your now unlicensed copies if they could...

yea but it mostly affects the russian channel in the game. i mean the game is 10 years old. if u license real music from real artist's well i guess this is what happens. atleast they let us know that this is happening

Damn, Oleg Kvasha - "Зеленоглазое такси" Club Remix [Zelenoglazoe Taksi / Green Eyed Taxi] was one of my favorites in the game.

It's been a long time since I played it but I mostly listened to Independent FM with my own music but mainly enjoyed the humor of the talk radio shows. The radio was something GTA 4 did better than GTA 5 in my opinion.
