Grand Theft Auto Advance - First Screenshots & Snippets

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 09:38 AM MDT | By Neil
You might've seen these a couple of days back from some low quality digital camera shots, but we had to remove them for legal reasons. They're back thanks to fourengland, and certain people at Ziff Davis Media should take note that they're not taken from any of their publications. We can finally confirm that the character you play as in GTAAdvance is known as Mike, and the game is set one year prior to Grand Theft Auto 3. Yes, it really is a portable GTA, and with the console now available for a staggering $79.99 in the USA, you'd be hard pushed to find a better bargain! Onward, to the images!


In other news, the GTA: Vice City PS2 screenshots gallery has been updated (ooh, the nostalgia) with some new code and a good hundred or so new images [to this site]. Have fun browsing!

You've got to remember that Game Boy Advance uses ageing technology. Look out for GTA: PSP news in about a year's time.

1) What's GTA:PSP

It's highly likely Sony will want to see a Grand Theft Auto title on Playstation Portable(PSP), since if it's able to shift PS2 consoles, there's no reason why it wouldn't achieve the same on a handheld.

Sales figures for GTA:Advance will prove interesting.

Hey people, please respect the people who are making this game. Yeesh... you little children are sooo unappreciative of the game. Can you make one? NO. So shut the hell up and quit b*tching.

Oh, and Neil, nice work on those VC Screens! They're sig quality =D!!!

That is impressive that they can get GTA to look like the PS1 version on the GBA considering that the GBA is a glorified SNES. We will have to see if there are any slowdown problems and how large the city really is.

I will eat my foot if this game becomes popular. Looks like rockstar have messed up. Suppose the only time it would be played if you were on a long journey.

It looks good. Especially for a handheld. So what if it's not 3D... You can play this wherever you want. On the bus, train, plane, etc. It would really cut down the flight times when on a 7 hour flight. You could really get far in the game and stuff.

I'll definately be buying it. Looks pretty sweet and it's meant to be 3x as big as Liberty City for PS2 and seeing as it is set before the PS2 GTA III, it will definately tie in with that storyline.

Why did you take screenshots of GTA VC for the PS2? We don't need to see them do we? Cause I think everyone has played VC.

Cool. I know this would be better on PSP but PSP hasent come out yet plus Nintendo dose do a very good job making games work right and not freas as much so it will be good on GBA.

couldn't they have at least had a locked camera angle behind the character to make driving and aiming and such easier?

He took screens of the vice city ps2 version because maybe some people want to see the difference between the ps2 version and the PC version.

If you kiddy loving sony bumin' Nintendo haters think that the DS will fail because of lower graphics quality, then you are greatly mistaken.

BTW, I too think GTA on the PSP would be class.

Finally, GTA is coming to Game Boy Advance. I'm somewhat dissapointed that you view the game from the top rather than the PS2 angle.
