Very exciting to hear I'll be able to put some use to my PSP again, but I fear the game will not be nearly as intriguing with on the PSP given the lack of the unique controls with the stylus and touch screen on the DS version.

We'll have to wait and see, but I won't doubt Rockstar's creativity with this one. Can't wait for "later this year"!

Holy shit that was unexpected :D But now I don't have to get a DS to enjoy this game...
Kinda makes me wonder what they'll do about all of the touch screen features, though.

Whoops, thought I commented on this earlier. Odd news indeed, but I'll miss using the stylus. Hey, look on the bright side! Custom soundtracks might be added!

I will look forward to this, but I will wait for it to become a $20 bargain.

I mean... Liberty City again?

The top-down view will be a bit of a let down on the PSP, hopefully they ditch it
