In the newest issue of Nintendo Power contains an interview with the President of Rockstar Leeds, Gordon Hall. As most of you know Rockstar Leeds is the studio which developed the two PSP GTA games.

QUOTE(Gordon Hall)
Chinatown Wars is much bigger than anything we have ever done before: more odd jobs, deeper missions, and more moments of over-the-top action. We have a huge interaction with the Rockstar Social Club, a massive game that would stand alone on its own. The list goes on and on; this thing is huge. We are very proud of all of the PSP games we have made, especially the two GTA games, but this game is far bigger.

Chinatown Wars will be released on March 17, one month after GTA IV's DLC episode The Lost and Damned on the Xbox 360.

Damn, that's too bad for me. I don't have a DS. I wish it was for PSP as well. They should make it on all platforms like they did with the "_____ _____ Stories" ones. sad.gif

Well, the DS has some cool shit most other systems don't have excluding the Wii. I realized this from playing Phantom Hourglass on my lil bro's DS. Beside, the Nintendo market is booming much more than the PSP market. There were twice as many DS's sold than PSP's for 2008 alone. It seems like a smart choice.

Plus, this means I'll be able to play the new GTA handheld which is great considering I haven't been able to play any of the "... Stories."

True, it will certainly be bigger in terms of sales because the number of DSs sold you can't go wrong. People said that the game will flop and "OMY WHY ON DS THIS IS BVULLSHIT!!!??!?!111!@4"" but it really is a good move. Not to mention all the controversy its going to get when soccer moms that bought their 5 year olds the game see them playing it.

Haha, as lame as it sounds it'd probably be fun. DSs are cool.

They're making it on DS for something different. If it was for every system, that would take that 'special' feeling from it.

Though, if they made it for the Wii, it would be more fun. But still. They will only have it on DS because they have every game for PC, most games for the Playstation series, and xbox. So apparently they wanted to try something different and give Nintendo a chance.

I'm looking forward to it. If any GTA game was ever made for Wii I would hope it would be a remake of an old game just with a new engine, interface, controls, the works. I would buy that shit up. Especially Vice City. Yeah, that's the one I'd like to see.

Wouldn't be a complete remake. Probably something along the lines of VCS and LCS. Similar map with changes, new storyline.

Well, I wouldn't mind if it was the same though. Vice City could fit onto a DS I'm sure. Full map and everything.

Isn't that what they said about GTA4? 'Bigger, better, way more stuff to do...'
We all know how that one turned out... Better graphics, but WAY less stuff to do.
Maybe on the DS, after letting so many paying customers and fans down, they'll actually come through.
Of course, it's on another system, though, so extra handheld devices will be bought and sold.
Have to be, if you want to play it... It's an 'exclusive', afterall.
Until they release it later on a system you already had.

Same as the downloadable content... Watch, there'll be features that should have been in the original.
They just wanted to squeeze a ton of extra money out of us.
Exclusive to xbox, but, for how long?

Anyone heard yet when/if the download stuff will come out on disc?
Sure it will, sooner than later.
Why lose out on that much extra profit?

At least the PSP graphics were pretty much the same as a PS2 game.
The DS screen shots look like the original PS1 games.
A big step backwards.

Besides, isn't the DS mostly for little kids?
How moral is it to sell a game simulating drug deals and murder and etc. to little kids?

Oh yeah, we 'grown ups' are supposed to go run out and buy a brand new DS.
Wonder how much Rockstar gets off of every one? Kickbacks and all...

Ever wonder why the GTA games center on crooks and criminals? Folks who are only after dollars?
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, right?

Well I think that's bullshit really. In terms of content, like the map size, vehicles graphics/sound etc.. there's no way it could be bigger than the PSP with it's 1.6GB UMD. I don't know how big these Nintendo Cartridges are, but they're not that big.

I haven't seen what this game looks like, is it really competing with the PSP GTA games?

Wait. It's a top down view game, but it's in 3D. And it's the same map as GTA4 except no Alderny (3rd Island)

Pretty impressive
