In a tweet *shudder*. Rockstar, creators of the retardedly popular Grand Theft Auto Series has announced that Chinatown Wars will be released for the PSP.
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was released for the Nintendo DS earlier this year to much critic praised, and customer praise.. from the 3 people who bought the game. Chinatown Wars fell victim to the same Nintendo curse of being an adult/mature based game on a Nintendo console. (also look up, Mad World, House of the Dead: Overkill, and The Conduit.)
On GameAnswers, someone a few months ago asked if this game was going to be released on the PSP. My reply was “Nothing is planned, but, with the abysmal sales it had on the DS, I can easily see them releasing it on the PSP.”
..And that’s pretty much exactly what is happening on October 20th of this year.
UPDATE: in new screenshots released today.. it’s obvious they didn’t put any time in transforming the game from the top down 3d perspective into the 3rd person sandbox we all know and love.. this is disappointing.
