The radio stations in Grand Theft Auto III are a massive jump over the radio stations in Grand Theft Auto 2. Just like with GTA 2, radio stations can only be heard when in a vehicle. Majority of the stations play a mixture of music, DJ chat, and spoof advertising. GTA III has a variety of music genres and introduces a talk show radio. In law enforcement vehicles radio stations are disabled, however you can hear police chatter in the background instead.

MP3 Player (PC only) (User-Defined Track Player)


CD Changer (Xbox only) (Plays Songs Ripped From CD’s Stored On Hard Disk)

GTA III allows players to play their songs in the PC and Xbox ports of the game. This custom radio station is named “MP3 Player” in the PC port, and “CD Changer” in the Xbox port.

“MP3 Player” only supports .mp3 and .wav music formats. Tracks are played in alphabetical order according to their file names and cannot be skipped. Inserting custom music into “MP3 Player” consists simply of placing music files into the “mp3” folder located within the primary game folder (i.e. Program Files\Rockstar Games\Grand Theft Auto III\mp3). For the Xbox version, a CD must be installed into the console’s hard drive.
