Rockstar switches to iTunes for GTA music partnership

Rockstar games has dropped Amazon in favor of iTunes as its music partner for the latest Grand Theft Auto release, Variety reports. Players of Grand Theft Auto IV were able to buy any of the songs featured on the Game’s radio stations via an in-game “Zit” service, which worked in partnership with Amazon’s MP3 store and the Rockstar Social website—but in the latest release, that service will be tied to iTunes, instead. Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and the Damned is a downloadable episode that will include updates to five of the Game’s 19 virtual radio stations, with new tracks from artists including Busta Rhymes and Funkmaster Flex. The report indicates that Apple was left out of the initial package due to its DRM-scheme, which has since been dropped from iTunes downloads.
