Rockstar Games have just announced that they will be bringing Chinatown Wars to the PSP. From the press release:

New York, NY – June 22, 2009 – Rockstar Games, the world-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is pleased to announce that one of the highest-rated handheld games of all time, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, will be making its way to the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) handheld entertainment system. Developed by the award-winning studio Rockstar Leeds, in conjunction with series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be available at retail on UMD® and digitally from the PlayStation®Network in North America and Europe this fall.

"We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSP®go," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "Rockstar Leeds has shown incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced, and incredibly addictive entry into the series."

"Rockstar's work with the GTA series has been an enormous part of the success of PlayStation platforms," said Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We're excited to welcome the critically acclaimed Chinatown Wars to the outstanding line-up of great games headed to the PSP platform this fall."

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars follows the story of Huang Lee, a young Triad who travels to Liberty City after the mysterious death of his father. Within the game, players will navigate their way through the streets as they uncover the truth behind an epic tale of crime and corruption within the Triad crime syndicate, delivering the unprecedented amount of depth that has become a true trademark of the franchise. Specifically built for the PSP platform with upscaled widescreen graphics, enhanced lighting and animation; and including all-new story missions; this version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will take full advantage of the power of the PSP system.

Yeah, I read about this on CVG about an hour ago. How will they manage the touchscreen stuff, though? It's good news, but I didn't expect this at all.

That's pretty cool how it's going to be downloadable. Shame I already got it though :)

Nothing to see here, move along

Hmm. I'm more interested in how they're planning to incorporate the size of chinatown Wars, on the DS, wasn't it all of Liberty City? for them to do that on a PSP would be a formidable task, they could barely do it with vcs and lcs.

Nice... If Leeds managed to port CW unabridged on the PSP, other than the touchscreen features, then it's a proof of concept that GTAIV-era Liberty can be ported to the PSP, or maybe the PS2.

I wanted it to be like the DS, cell shaded. It gives out a much cooler look imo.

Well this is gay. So much for a game specifically for the DS. Sell-outs.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.
