I got info on GTA: Chinatown Wars
 
I talk to some people inside the industry.

This is what I know.

It has been in development for 2 years.

The character models are sprites. It is NOT top down, however. The entire world and vehicles are 3d.

Believe what you want, but this is what I know.

Peace.

The world is 3d, the cars are 3d, the character models are layered sprites. It is NOT top down.

Yup, and my dad is Sam Houser!!

Believe what you want.

Believe him or not. He's got a pretty solid reputation around here.

So you'll know soon enough when the first shots or info is released if he's telling the truth or not.

Two years you say? I'm calling bullshit on that, Two years ago Rockstar Leeds were finished porting LCS to the PS2 and working on VCS for the PSP whilst doing reserving data at the same time for the PS2 port of that.

Slim Trashman 07-16-2008 08:23 PM

3D sprites eh? Hm, interesting...

What connections do you have specifically if you don't mind me asking.

Himuro 07-16-2008 08:29 PM

Forgot to mention that it's written by the usual writers.

Slim: I talk to multiple people. Some people who are game journalists, some people who make games, some people who also have connections and we pass each other information.

As far as I know, GTAVCS came out in October 2006. This is a estimate, not an exact number.

Also, porting a game isn't much of a hassle. A team of 1-3 people can port a game in just a few months. For example, the number of people porting Dead Rising to wii is...guess what? 10 people. And that's porting a 360 game to the wii. Porting a psp game to the ps2 is really no hassle at all.

Do you know how big Rockstar Leeds is? It's like a small office building. Trust me they must of been working on VCS to the very end because that was a buggy piece of shit, so either they were rushing the game because they had to hit a deadline (that was delayed in Europe but for other reasons), or, if what you are saying is true, they were distracted by this crappy new game, meaning I have less respect for Rockstar because they bothed up a game because they were fucking around on GTAZ Stylus City.

NamAim1991 07-16-2008 09:13 PM

Himuro, I've never known you to have insiders info, but I wouldn't think you'd post bullshit fresh from your ass. Least I wouldn't expect it. And i could see sprites working for a DS GTA.

And ash, we don't know for sure that Leeds is devolping it, do we? I don't think that they've specified which branch of Rockstar is devolping this exactly.

Still two years is a long time for something to go without any info on the game being leaked.

Ash_735 07-16-2008 09:15 PM

Chinatown Wars IS being developed by Rockstar Leeds and Rockstar North. Time Wise, Leeds would of been busy with the Stories games and North with IV.

NamAim1991 07-16-2008 09:20 PM

Ahh... You're right. It is being devoloped by Leeds and North. They don't have either of the devoloper's sights listed on the official sight of Chinatown Wars so i wasn't sure. Still it's had to be in development for a while tho... Rockstar doesn't usually announce their games until they have some stuff to back it up. Least that's what I think.

Skillet 07-16-2008 09:46 PM

Guess I have reason to believe you on this, Himuro. You're not necessarily one to lie.

mM1k3y 07-17-2008 02:31 AM

well i guess thats possible but they couldnt work hard on it till gta4 came out, before that they were probly just doin little things on free time

So, it features the full Liberty City from IV? And is it an RPG/Tactical game or a traditional GTA game?

Shadow Conception 07-17-2008 02:39 AM

Well Himuro IS a gaffer, so what he said is entirely possible.
