I'm still waiting for your response.
Yeah. R* is so broke they only have $265,000,000 to make a game with.
Until the day comes where music licening is cheap and hassle free (which will be never) we won't be seeing Nirvana on a GTA soundtrack.
If they make another GTA in the 90s then they f*cking better have Nirvana on the soundtrack.
And how much of that went to actual development costs I wonder? Hmmm... Probably most of it, and even then people bitch that V was still sh*t.
Plus it's not just the money that prevents Rockstar from getting the rights for your sh*tty 90's grunge band. Chuck as much money in as you want, Nirvana is as impossible to licence as Pink Floyd.
Yeah, hard to license as Pink Floyd? Here's a list of games (not even rhythm games) that have Nirvana on their soundtrack:
Major League Baseball 2K7
Madden NFL 10
MotorStorm Pacific Rift
Tony Hawk's Proving Ground
It's not a thing of the past past either, Rocksmith 2014 has Heart Shaped Box. So, put your sh*tty taste in music aside. There is literally no excuse not to have Nirvana, especially if they return to the 90s.
