We reported a month or so ago that we believed the in-game search engine in GTA4 would be called EyeFind.info. We came to this conclusion based on the fact that behind the LCPD kiosk in star junction, there was a billboard advertising "EyeFind.info". In real life, there is a yahoo sign behind the NYPD kiosk. Read here for more info.

Anyway, this has turned out to be the case, and an update to Rockstar's Weazel News website talks about the search engine.


QUOTE
Eyefind shares at $1,000
The markets may be taking a pummeling, but shares of popular search engine Eyefind.info are through the roof as America puts all its eggs in one basket, then gets diagnosed with astronomical cholesterol and has a stroke.

Incidentally, EyeFind.info now points to Rockstar Games GTA4 website, rather than the landing page it previously had. Perhaps this will be included in an update on the official site?

Indeed, how would eyefind benefit the player? Maybe it will become the "options" screen when you want to find how to do something...? instead of saying "just google it" when you don't understand something... it'll be "eye will find it!" lol...





or, maybe not.

If it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.

I bet it will be used to find addresses via internet, possibly the address of a business you need to raze for an employer?

Well with businesses having their own in game addresses and whatnot I'd imagine it'll no doubt be useful for that, rather than flicking through the sundays... Which I doubt will be in IV. V_V

What will I read while eating my full engl.... Continental at Marco's?

Wonder if they do one....
