Chinatown Wars coming to iPhone and iPod touch

GTA: Chinatown Wars - General News | @ 09:39 AM MDT | By Neil
Chinatown Wars iPhoneRockstar Games just announced that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be released for iPhone and iPod touch later this year. No screenshots have been released, but the game is being developed by Rockstar Leeds and will be available in the fall.

The game was released for Nintendo DS earlier this year and is currently the console's highest rated game according to Metacritic. A PSP version will arrive at around the same time as the iPhone version.

When released on the App Store, the game will face some competition from similar titles like Payback, Gangstar: West Coast Hustle and Car Jack Streets. GTAGaming covered the latter a few months ago when it was released by Tag Games, a company founded in the same city as DMA Design/Rockstar North.

...alright, the PSP version was acceptable. But an iPhone version? Seriously, Rockstar?

Apple has sold about 30 million iPhones and a huge number more iPod touches. It doesn't quite match the PSP install base (and not everyone with one is interested in games) but it's still a very lucrative platform.

Novaman I really don't see what your problem with this is...

It's still on the DS, people arent going to knock at your door demanding you give your copy to them and buy the new versionss.

If it comes 3D, it will be good, but if it is the same, fuck it, FUCK IT

If it is the same, Gangstar: West Coast Hustle, will be the best GTA-Style handheld ever
