Players of Grand Theft Auto IV can now look up songs they hear in the game with the touch of a controller, and then access and download personalized playlists of those songs from Amazon MP3.

When playing the videogame, players can listen to more than 200 songs across 16 in-game radio stations. A new GTA IV feature called ZIT lets customers "tag" the songs they like. When a player hears a song that interests them, they can dial ZIT/555-0100 on their in-game cell phone and a text message appears on the phone with the song title and artist. The ZIT number is recorded on the phone for one-key lookups of future songs.

After playing, gamers can log on to the new online Rockstar Games Social Club community site at, where they can see their stats from their game play and the full list of songs they’ve tagged. The site will offer a link to a customized playlist of these songs on Amazon MP3, where they can preview, purchase and download the songs as 256kbps MP3 files.

In addition, Amazon MP3 will offer a dedicated storefront page promoting the music from Grand Theft Auto IV at The store will be organized by the radio stations within the game and will feature the new 16-song album The Music of Grand Theft Auto IV for $8.99.
