GTA IV Trailer to Air on Television?

Users at NeoGAF and GameFAQs have reported seeing a GTA4 countdown on the FX Network channel (a channel owned by FOX) early on Thursday..

“If you turn to the FX channel right now, there’s a big black screen with ‘IV’ in the Grand Theft Auto font, along with the word ‘trailer’ and a countdown leading up to next Thursday, March 29 at around 6 p.m. EST. Then there’s Rockstar’s GTA4 Web site listed below with the Rockstar logo.”

“With each second that counts down, there’s a ‘KA-chung, KA-chung, KA-chung’ noise that resembles the 24 countdown noise, but with less clang and not so much beep. It’s annoying, until you’ve been listening to it for a few minutes and it just becomes hypnotic.”

The question is whether this is just advertising for the web trailer, or a hint that the trailer will be aired on television once the countdown hits zero. Stay tuned, and we’ll do our best to find out more.

Thanks to our partnersite PlanetGrandTheftAuto for this one.
