WHO LOVES ROCKSTAR?
WE LOVE ROCKSTAR! Will I be dissapointed if it's a straight port? Nope, because I am just interested in the story. I'll probably give it back soon as that's over.

yes! i knew they would make it for the PS2, i just hope they add all the features from SA.

but as mjuboy said i think they should stop making GTA for handhelds, or atleast make them for the PS2 first/same time.

Yes, definitely, Rockstar should never make another GTA title for handhelds, because making money is such a useless excuse for a past time.

Im excited for this because my friends who have this, i just sit down and play it religiously. Haha But the thing is I only get it for a bit and I dont have a PSP. I was mad because it is a whole other chunk of the story line I wasnt getting. But this makes me happy although I hope they add more than there was in the PSP version. E.G. some of the stuff that was in SA. =)

I don't see the point in this.
Just seem like its all for money rather than quality.
Why continue to flog a dead horse with the PS2. Its out of date and underpowered!
More GTA on the PSP imo! But i think a new game for PC/PS3 and 360 is what should happen not just another rehash of an old one!
Hell i bet some of teh modders out there could easily code those missions in to GTA3 or Liberty City (Vice city) with a bit of time. Look how close RealGTA got!

Some of your comments are so unintelligent that I get annoyed just reading them.

You can't complain for GTA games coming out on the PSP.. Either way, its going to make it to the PS2.

There may be one more game after this year for the PSP, then they will begin releasing them for the Playstation3.

I own a PSP, and I'm happy if the games are coming out to it, I don't want to know that I wasted $400 on a PSP because everyone urges game developers to release on the PS2.

Very wise solution if you ask me. I get GTA to play anywhere, and the players who lack a PSP get the game.

Don't start complaining because you don't get the game first -- how do you think gamers with only a PC or XBOX feel?

I think it is a great idear because yes it will make them more money but it will give thoughs who do not have a psp to play it on their playstation 2. But if you get a ps3 then you can still play it because the PS3 is backward fixed so you can play your ps2 games and ps 1 games on it so we all win and so do R*


ROCKSTAR ROCK, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK

PEACE AND LOVE

Is the PS3 backwards compatible? I wasn't sure if they said it would be or not, due to the new disc format.. I would imagine so, but as I mentioned, not sure what a news article said a while back.

Officially confirmed by Sony that ALL the Playstaion two AND one games are easily compatible with Playstation 3.

You just gotta love it.

On topic; as long as it comes to the big versions, I don't care what they release for PSP. But I am not too satisfied with the PSP first, PS2 later idea.

And will the online be available on PS2? That will be interesting.

Why would they release it on PS2? It cancels out the reason they made it on PSP, to sell PSP's. But then again, maybe Sony is behind this, releasing another GTA title to lessen sales of the X360, plus it'll be easy to port over. I wonder if they'll put any more work into it though, or just release it basically as is.

I could see this one coming. They released GTA3 and Vice City way after it was released for PC on the Xbox aswell, remember..
