Go along the boardwalk near the beach house that you can purchase and look for a billboard advertising cigarettes called "Homies Sharp". Look at the shop beneath the billboard; It's called "SubStandard", and has a logo and color pattern similar to Subway's.

Possibly a little jab at Subway's restaurants? :P

In the mission where you steal Madd Dogg's rhyme book, Don't kill the guy playing Driv3r right away. He plays the game and comments on it in hilarious fashion :P

Isn't one of the lines something along the lines of "DAMN Tanner, you suck!" or something? :thumbsup:

--- [Rockstar Gets Back at Driv3r] ---

Description: In the mission at Madd Dogg's mansion, you'll hear from a man

that's playing a videogame, sitting by the television, say to himself: 'Yeah,

look how this Tanner guy runs! He moves like his bowels have let go... This

sucks. I mean, how could Refractions mess up so bad? Tanner, you suck ass!' 

Reflections is the real name of the company, but you can see how Refractions

is similar.  Tanner is the name of the main character from Driv3r, in case

you didn't know.  Driv3r had little Tommy Vercetti's with water wings because

Tommy couldn't swim from GTA:VC, so Rockstar had to get them back somehow. 

Although this is a little more direct than Driv3r's approach ;)

--- [Rockstar Gets Back at True Crime] ---

Description: True Crime: Streets of L.A., was without a doubt based off the

GTA series with it's free roam gameplay.  In an effort to make fun of the

competition yet again, there's a billboard in San Andreas that says 'Get rid

of old rubbish, fast!  True Grime: Street Cleaners'.  To get to the

billboard, follow the train tracks from your house until you get to Unity

Station.  It'll be at the beginning of the tunnel, directly above you.

The reason they've done this is because in True Crime, there were billboards

that had a GTA style cartoon of a guy wearing a pink jockstrap.  Next to it

read "JOCKSTRAP" in the same style as the Rockstar logo, as well as a J*

beside to mock Rockstar's Logo, R*.

Here's another interesting detail that may be Rockstar's way of also

insulting True Crime.  On the mission "Home Invasion" that you get from

Ryder, during the cutscene right before you enter the house you are to rob,

Ryder says "Yah, yah, we gotta do it ninja style!".  As you may or may not

know, in "True Crime: Streets of LA" the main character Nick Kang says that

same thing right as you start any of the sneaking missions.

--- [Vice City and Manhunt Action Figures] ---

Description: Head into Zero's store.  On the rack by the counter, and on the

wall behind the counter, you'll find Tommy and Lance from Vice City, as well

as two characters from Manhunt being sold as action figures.

Requirements: You'll have to own Zero's RCs Shop so you can enter the store.

--- [Manhunt References] ---

Description: To see a Shock Trooper from Manhunt, head into the bar called

the "Ten Green Bottles" by your house in the OGF neighbourhood.  Once

inside, look to the wall on your left and you'll see a drawing of one of the

director's Shock Troopers from the Manhunt game.  It can also be seen in some

other bars as well.

If you're in the City Planning Department (can be entered only during the

mission Architectural Espionage, or by using the Hidden Interiors Universe

glitch), you can see the plans for the Starkweather mansion from the Manhunt

game.
