- A Dragon Brain theme tune can be purchased from Vipluxuryringtones.com and used as a phone ringtone.
- The radio advertisement mentions California, which is rather strange, as San Andreas is the GTA equivalent of California. This most likely means that California is a state in the HD Universe as this is not the only mention of California in the HD era.
