Nintendo announces GTA: Chinatown Wars for the DS

Eventually. Not much need for it yet because nothing is known except this press release. Also if it's going to be released this winter it means it's pretty much done, no time for wishes. Plus we have no idea of the scale of the game and what sort of things to expect.

We'll make a forum when there's a little more demand for it.

EDIT: never mind, I'll make one now.

I thought it was a joke at first, lol. I can't get it anyway because I don't have a DS, but if it looks good enough, I'll buy one.

I hope it has GTA IV gameplay, but I was hoping for another GTA on PS3/360 that would have airplanes and all that wonderful various amount of stuff like on GTA:SA.

Oh well. <_< Just hope it isn't a top-down GTA and that it isn't set in the GTA 3 Liberty City.

It won't have GTA IV gameplay... They wouldn't use those advanced engines for a portable GTA. And hoping for another big GTA release... Already? We JUST got GTA IV....

GTA on handheld? :|

Doesn't sound very good.

There's been three of them to date that I know of. Where have you been?

I just didn't think they would have a smaller-GTA release since they wouldn't have any smaller GTAs or "Stories" to do.

Why not? It's something unique and fun to do. And this isn't a "Stories" game.

I wasn't thinking outside-the-box. Like Chris and others said, they were surprised to see another GTA located in Liberty City and who would've thought a GTA would be on the DS?

Anyways, I wonder if you'll be able to fire via the touchscreen. :) That'll be sick.

EDIT: Fixing Grammar. :)

No, it would be really annoying. I'd much rather use R.

Yes, I agree using R on peds would be better, but how about when doing drivebys, blind-firing, shooting vehicles and etc?

IMO, it would be new and unique and doing the items listed above using an analog is different and not the best but now imagine using the DS' control pad.

I personally would enjoy using the touchscreen to fire.

I don't know if I said this, but this is also good news to some of us because it's sort of like higher odds that we could get a GTA on Wii. Maybe, that is, if this actually succeeds and people like it.

^ And, if R* are more likely to make an 'experimental' (if you will) DS release, it shows promise for a PC version, which will definitely sell well.

How does that show promise of a PC version? It wouldn't exactly port all that great.

nah but seriously, I've seen GTA3 on PSP, it ran pretty good actually. I just wasn't expecting GTA on a nintindo system.

I meant a PC version of IV, not CTW, probably my wording, but yeah. PC vers. of IV would sell better than CTW, IMO, so.... yeah... self explanatory....

Acronyms FTW.

Chinatown wars sounds good, my friend has a Ds lite and I use it sometimes..He uses an R4, which is basically an empty cartridge that allows you to store multiple games on one cartridge, use it to view photos, videos, listen to music etc. Like a little computer..

You sure about that? It's definitely possible, people are already playing San Andreas on the PSP thanks to all these crazy methods etc.

LMAO!

Are you serious?

no. ps2 and older can not be emulated on the psp. not enough processor. ps1 and older can be though. including nintendos. no xbox though

You're probably right, the screen is so damn small. Tony looks a lot like Claude anyway.

I wasn't playing the game, was watching over a shoulder.
