The Internet is a new feature introduced in Grand Theft Auto IV.

Description

The game has its own in-game internet, featuring a number of websites that can be viewed on an in-game web browser similar to Apple Safari.

The player can access the internet through any computer available in the game, such as the ones in the Tw@ lan-houses, or the ones in the Middle Park East Safehouse and Playboy X's Penthouse. In The Lost and Damned, theres a computer available in the Lost MC Clubhouse too.

The internet can update itself with the storyline, adding new articles, that narrates the events of several missions that the player complete, on the newspaper websites.

The internet supportes the Xbox 360 Chatpad, PS3 Wireless Keypad, and PC Mouse/Keyboard.

Websites

Main article: Websites in GTA IV

Any website advertised in-game can be visited, such as those advertised on the radio, billboards, posters and TV.

Most of the websites are just for the player's amusement, but a few of them actually have a purpose. At least one site has a rather unpleasant effect when visited; littlelacysurprisepageant.com will immediately give the player a five star wanted level.

The player can set up dates with people on the Love Meet website, or buy ringtones and wallpapers for Niko's cell phone on the Vipluxuryringtones.com website. The protagonist's email is also frequently used for staying in touch with story characters and getting mission details sometimes. For example, in GTA IV, Brucie Kibbutz will send Niko emails asking him to steal certain vehicles for him. Emails from Love-Meet.net are the only emails the player can receive after completing the story.

There is also a site named Whattheydonotwantyoutoknow.com, which shows to the player where useful hidden objects are like pigeons (for an achievement/trophie), guns health and Armor.
