If you head over to the GTA Chinatown Wars website it says it will be available Fall 2009 for iPhone & iPod Touch.

Who plans on getting this for Touch/iPhone when it comes out? I probably will because I'm dying to play an official GTA game on my Touch.

Yep probably will! Any screenshots of it on an iPhone / iPod Touch device yet? Interesting to see if it's any better than the DS version. I expect some changes because of the different resolutions of the devices.

I will be, hoping the price will be ?5.99 max.

I really liked Chinatown Wars on the DS, just never got round to playing it much:wacko::

I haven't saw screenshots yet but I would imagine it would look similar to the DS version.

Haha, don't hold your breath. The DS version was ?30, the PSP version will probably be around ?20-?30, and now they're remaking it again for another different format. I'm guessing it's going to be ?15, maybe even ?20. Most definitely not unde:p?10 :p

Also, why do people think it'll look as good as the DS version? It'll look -at least- as good as the PSP version, if not better. The iPhone has double the processing speed and quadruple the amount of available RAM as the PSP, I have a funny feeling they may boost the visuals a little.

I'm not sure what the price will be tbh, Madden 10 is only ?5.99, and most EA games are less than ?3 now.

Perhaps Chinatown will be worthy of the higher price, if its a full game, slightly worried about the controls though.

Does it not lack slightly in the 3D processing section though? Whilst Chinatown Wars isn't a graphical powerhouse of a game, it was rather impressive on the DS :) I think it may struggle to reach PSP standards, but certainly should manage DS.

I'm impressed :-) Is that just a 3Gs game or all of the Touch/iPhone models?

Sadly though I think tilting a device is a pretty naff way of controlling things when you are also trying to see what's happening on it.

I finished the DS version, it's essentially the same game right?

Not sure about original models but definitely works on the 3G. Also, lots of different control methods, I personally like to hold the left half of the screen to turn left, right to go right and depending on where my finger is vertically = accelerate or decelerate from memory but haven't played the game in weeks.

Standard 3g that is. I can't afford a 3gs :( That was when i first got the game, now I don't bother with the tilt, you can touch each side to steer.

Debating if I should go with this, or the PSP version.

I'm going to go for the iPhone version... I have a PSP but haven't touched it for about a year now, lol.

I hope it has multiplayer!

Here is a better view of what the new 3GS and the 3rd Gen Touch can do.

Kinda... It's exactly like the DS version, GTA2 style to be exact.

Well the DS version is... so why wouldn't the PSP one be? :p

Here are some screenshots of the PSP version

I expect the iPhone version to look very similar to these :p

I mean is it going to be top down only or can you get closer to the action like in LCS.

I ended up going up with the PSP version. Cool game. A lot of people are sure to enjoy it on iPhone.

Still no exact release date on this other than "fall". I'm hoping it comes out real soon as I just sold my PSP and want to pick this up for my iPod. It's one of the best portable games I've ever played!!

This has apparently been delayed until sometime next year. I wonder what the problem is. You'd think it would be pretty simple to just port the DS version.

Obviously with the forum being re-set, my post about this being released was deleted. Anyway, just a heads up for people that this is now available on the AppStore. Go get it!!!
