Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition coming to iPhone, iPad and Android on December 15th
Rockstar Games announced earlier today that the Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition port will be released on select iDevices and Android phones on December 15th. Ten years after its original release, a whole new generation of gamers who missed out on this iconic Rockstar title can finally play it on their mobile phones. Thankfully, it’ll be compatible with single core iPhones and iPads, so even those without an iPhone 4S or iPad 2 can still run the game on their devices. The launch price is set at $4.99, which is certainly on the reasonable side. Check out the list of supported phones/tablets below, along with the intro trailer and screenshots.
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive
It’s now safe to say that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars has made its debut on all three major portable gaming platforms: DS, PSP, and now the iDevice. Though it’s unexpected, we iDevice gamers are a happy, lucky lot. Hopefully, Rockstar won’t pull an Assassin’s Creed II: Discovery scenario and yank the game from the App Store after too few short hours.
Piccies and more fun after the gap:
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be the franchise’s first story-driven GTA game for the iPhone. Yes, that is right, the series which inspired Payback, Gangstar, and Car Jack Streets, will hit the iDevice like a six-shooter this fall.
While not exactly a GTA-clone, Gangstar is similarly stationed – a violent game involving crime, money, and lots of blood. The above video is courtesy of a TouchArcade preview the iPhone ‘port’ of the game. I use quotation marks because, as you will see, this ain’t exactly 2006′s Gangstar.
Yeah, a little YouTubing around the ol’ world wide web and I happened on a few exciting videos that prove Tag Games are really up to something beyond hyping a product that Apple are holding onto! Well, we all knew that anyway, but this four-part video diary gets dirty with plot, design, music and gameplay and what really sets Car Jack apart from both its competitors and its forbears.
