Screw iPhones, when is this coming out for Android?!

Posted by Banzai_NL

This actually is a great port. If you haven't played it on any other platform, get it on this. It's mad cheap at 10 bucks.

Meh, iphone + serious gaming = stupid.

Posted by Milkman

Actually looks like they did a good job.

Posted by super_machine

To be fair, its the only platform GTA:CTW runs on that you can actually use to call someone to buy real drugs. That has to be worth something right?

Posted by PapaLazarou

They need to make the game easier because the vehicles control like crap on the Iphone so repeating the same racing missions again and again isn't fun. They also need to add in an option to turn on and off the Pedestrian voice overs because the game feels lfieless without them.

Not if it doesn't control well.

looks nice and colourful, explosions and all. Too bad your thumbs are going to be in the way half the time.

Posted by CL60

I hate playing games on my ipod touch because my thumbs are always blocking the screen.

Posted by XXL_Bomb

Looks pretty bad. I'd much rather play it on a real portable gaming platform.

Posted by Stargate174

OMG they are porting it to the iPhone when it never sold well on the PSP or DS. Do they ever learn GTA is just boring and when GTA4 came out it put me to sleep it was the most un-fun game of the year.

Personally, I don't like playing bigger budget games on my iPhone, but I hear this one is actually a well done port that doesn't feel like shit. Still, I'm not too sure if I can be won over while it uses drawn on sticks and buttons.

Posted by RHCPfan24

I bought it and love it. Most people should give it a try; it is the first really good port I have played on the iPhone.

Posted by Ghostiet

Give those people half a year and this game will get ported more than Resident Evil 4 did.

@Stargate174: 
What planet do you live on? GTA will always turn a profit, so why not put it on the iphone?

I think so, certainly.

actually looks good.

@ajamafalous: 
well it does control well, its been out for a week now and is definitly a hit on the itunes store. Loving it, runs great, looks better than ds version, controls are excellent, and only $10 whats not to like ?
Posted by ShaunassNZ

Looks good but Iphones need some type of physical control system instead of virtual buttons and joysticks, I think it was Dtoid or Kotaku that said someone was doing something about it.

Posted by ShaunassNZ
@Valru: That's probably what gets me most is a ported game to Iphone and the price is like $10 apposed to $40, I get if they put it for the same price as DS and PSP no one will buy it because it's just an App. 
Posted by FuzzYLemoN

The graphics of the PSP version with the gameplay of the DS version? Intriguing...

Posted by Kohe321

Awesome

You do know that Android is just a Operating System right?

The reason why the iPhone is popular for games and such is because every user has the same core hardware, software and resolution, you make a game for the iPhone and you reach a large amount of users, whereas with Android, Windows Mobile, Symbian etc, they all use various hardware and resolutions, so there really isn't much that you can do with it, they would have to develop for dozens of combinations to reach a good amount of people which is extremely expensive, so yeah, the iPhone is ideal for that.

The question is ofcourse, what will Apple do, the iPhone is heavily outdated, especially it's resolution, I got a smaller screen but my resolution is 2,5 times that of a iPhone, so what will happen when they upgrade it?

I've heard it does control well.

Wow are you a fucking idiot? you know there's a story right? 

I love how so many people here have no clue what the heck there talking about. If been playing this for about 2 days now and it is a great port and a great iphone game. It takes 15 min to get used to the controls, the story is pretty good. The missions are fun like every gta game.I  And just for your information this game already sold more on the iphone then on the psp and ds

The only real negative about the iphone is the lack of a directional pad, but it never breaks any game, it's just slightly more uncomfortable.   Not that directional pads or 'nubs' are that comfortable to begin with.
Posted by Skeetlejuice

it just shows the desperation that lame DS fans has caused Rockstar to have to go to, to try and get back into the black. But whatever is there seriously anything better than this on the iphone? (control issues nonwithstanding/price/value level)I was a bit tempted to grab it on PSP. 
 
it will likely be the game that required the most man hours to craft to ever hit the iphone, regardless of it being a port of a port.

Posted by MrKlorox

Looks like a decent hybrid between the PSP and DS versions.

it has an interesting story and missions, and it's only 10 bucks.  If you stopped caring about GTA after vice city though, you obviously won't like this one.
Posted by mattysen

As a man who owns all 3 platforms this game is on and doesn't own the game yet, I'd like to know what the best version of the game. From my viewings the DS still looks like the definitive version

Posted by natetodamax

Nobody should say "this is a shitty port" without playing it themselves. It's actually fantastic.

Posted by nick_verissimo
@Fr0Br0:  I'm in the same boat as you are.  But you know with the way the app store works the game will eventually be put on sale for a couple days for 25 or 50% off.  That'll be the time to get it.
Posted by kagekage

I've heard of nothing but good comments about this port. 
Another reason to give a body part to Apple :P

Alright. This is not so funny anymore.

@Stargate174: played GTA or GTA2?
Posted by spidy333

I bet they are going to make more money on iPhone than DS an will probably get over the miserable failure of the game on DS

Posted by Brontes_Muse

Well at $40 dollars at retail rockstar probably only sees about $14 bucks.  Because of production costs, shipping and distribution, sales reps, and retail markup.  On the iphone they make $7.  God knows that's not selling for that any more.  seems like a good deal.  

Posted by Mechanized

There is a little snap on thing that adds a dpad and buttons however it looks awful in its current form and if Apple ever gets smart enough to develop their own version of it iphone games will get a ton more playable.

Posted by Danyal

I just played it for a few hours in between classes. The game plays very well. It's the only time I have ever really played anything on my iPhone.

Posted by KingGamer

 Megaman on iPhone is almost impossible, there's no way GTA could work either.

@Benjaminvdv: Rumor is they're announcing a new iPhone along with a tablet computer on the 26th.
Posted by Benjaminvdv
@nanikore:

Well that tablet ain't relevant, as that's a completely different product, as for a possible new iPhone, it really depends what upgrades it got, for example the last iPhone saw a improvement in things such as connectivity, that doesn't change the hardware used for applications and games, but what if they would want to put in a different CPU or GPU.

That's what makes the iPhone so far interesting, because again you only have to develop for 1 piece of hardware, whereas Android and Windows Mobile phones are made with lots of different hardware, and unlike with PC's, we don't have a standard yet for phones, so while it's always easier and more effective to have standard hardware (just look at consoles vs pc's, it's just easier to optimize it for consoles because you know exactly what it does), if we had a standard then we could atleast release it for phones.

For now we just have too many different hardware, operating systems, resolutions, buttons and touchscreens, so if you wanted to release a game for atleast 50% of the major phones from the last 2 years that fall under the smartphones (can't expect a simple Nokia or Samsung to do this stuff), then you would need atleast 2 dozen versions of the game.


Personally I just hope that at some point we just got 1 OS left, that it's base is just a bunch of code and that each company can build it's own interface on it, obviously this is already being done to a certain extend with Android and Windows Mobile, but I would like it to be reduced to 1 OS.

Cool, I might give it a try. There seems to be alot of negative iPhone feedback on this thread ;/ . But its a throwback to the original GTA's and looks fun.

Yep. And in racing games when I have to tilt the screen, I can't see right.
Posted by MjHealy

Fake joypad? Nah, I will get the DS version.
