GTA TV and Rockstar TV Trademarks


Recommended Posts

I was scouring the Interwebs to find out anything of value and stumbled across this rather short but interesting article.



"Rockstar Games' parent Take-Two Interactive filed a couple interesting trademark applications recently. They've laid claim to the phrases "GTA TV" and "Rockstar TV," suggesting that the Grand Theft Auto developer has a new entertainment venture in the works.


The trademarks will apply to the following products: "Active computer game programs and software; animated motion picture films featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes; pre-recorded video discs and other pre-recorded digital and electronic media in the field of live action programs, motion pictures, or animation featuring entertainment, namely, action, adventure, dramatic, comedic, children's and documentary themes."


As OXM points out, recent Grand Theft Auto entries have featured in-game television and radio shows as well as parody websites. Perhaps Rockstar plans to add this type of original content to GTA V on a normal basis?


It's also possible that this Rockstar TV or GTA TV is simply a new platform for the mock TV shows and movies. You had to sit around in your character's apartment in order to watch this video content, which is a bit awkward. Most people would rather be out causing havoc in the streets than sitting around on a virtual couch. Rockstar TV/GTA TV could be a way for gamers to experience this content when they're away from the game. An iPhone app would be welcome.


It might be awhile before we find out what exactly Rockstar is planning, especially if this TV project is in fact tied to GTA V. They said recently that they're months away from releasing new details on that game."

Now this may be all speculation, but does it bring to light anything we hadn't known before?


As always, if this has been mentioned before, or does not have anything to do with further developing information on GTA V, you can go ahead and lock it.

I think that GTAV will have some sort of Theatre Mode similar to Just Cause 2. I hope this is the case; you don't know how many funny/cool moments I've experienced!

I apologize for the double post, but I read through all 12 publications of the application process and it struck me. If it was the intent of R*/Take-Two to just use this as the TV within the game, why go through the process of trademarking this and why would the game reference itself in-game if it was GTA TV.


Just something to think about.

This has been discussed before, can't find it so it's not your fault. I think they concluded that it's something they do on an annual basis. I can't for the life of me remember
