Specifically built for the PSP, the game will feature upscaled widescreen graphics, enhanced lighting and animation, plus all-new story missions.
Honestly, not too big of a deal. Though it is going to be very interesting seeing how well it sells on PSP as opposed to the DS, haha :P
It's going to do better on PSP,I for one am going to buy it on PSP.
Well considering the rampart piracy that plagues the system, I'd guess it wouldn't sell that much more than the DS version.Then again there is the PSPGo which may heighten the sales a little bit.
ds had a lot of pirates too so i dont know what u talking about
Isn't the DS a bit harder to mod than the PSP?
nope, a DS is modded with a simple mod card that goes in the card slot. There's so many ways to brick a PSP though when trying to mod it. You have to download this, unplug that, download this again, dont unplug this at this time or else, now that you downloaded this, jump in the air while trying to put a PSP game in...alot of hoops you have to jump to mod one.
I thought the PSP was really easy to mod, but you're telling me the DS is even easier? o.0?! I was going to get a DS when Scribblenauts comes out, but I think I'll get one sooner now. :) *Googles DS Homebrew*
yeah u just need a flash card that u can find on http://www.modsupplier.com/... and a micro sd card which u can find all over the place. psp is harsh to mod almost bricked my psp twice. ds games a like 200mb every game i think dont know since i didnt mod my ds. this is wht my friends got http://www.modsupplier.com/... @fishy u dont need the technical know how it is just the dangers of opening your psp battery and either cutting in to deep or not deep enough to the right spots. you can youtube mod psp battery into a pandoas' battery but that is the only known danger that is their and to have to buy a new battery if you fuk up on the first battery. the modding of the memory stick is a lot easier tho. although you can skip the hassles of by buying a pandoras battery and magic mem stick which is what i did but i did it. after i got my pandora battery i moded my mem stick to a magic memory stick and my extra battery into the pandoras battery @johnny Rotten i know man when i first saw the youtube videos i didnt feel like modding my battery with teh risk off killing my battery so i just bought a pre made pandora battery&magic mem stick for dirt cheap blue led which runs alone about &30& a 8gb magic mem stick all for $38
Type "R4 Revolution" into google, buy the card. Done. Thats DS piracy explained. PSP is far more difficult, requiring homebrew which needs technical know how to use and also scares many potential users because it has the potential to brick your PSP. DS is far and away the easiest system to play pirate games on. I dont know a single DS owner without an R4. Ranging from 10-60 year olds.
My 11 year old cousin just got a mod cart for her DS, it's as easy as click an dragging an MP3 into an MP3 player and with zero risk of screwing it up. The PSP takes a lot more "know how" and research.
The Ds is easier to pirate and plagued with it . It got no impact on the likes of gta
http://www.dealextreme.com/... Think this site is reliable? 6 bucks is a hard deal to pass up! :D
Yeah it's reliable, I ordered an aceKard for my DS from there last month.
The DS is easy to pirate because of the cartridge slot. Buy a R4 or something equivalent, then upgrade the kernel, and BAM! There it is.
Getting it now!! :D
I'll download it over PSN for my PSP Go!
thats pretty cool. i just hope they up the graphics a bit. the gameplay etc may have all been there in the ds version but i wasn't at all a fan of the graphics. would be annoying if they just ported it when the psp's gta games so far have looked as good as gtIII on the ps2 imo
JUST got Chinatown Wars for the DS for €12.99. Huh...
This should have been on the PSP in the first place. Look at the sales of previous GTA games on PSP and compare them to the abysmal sales of GTA CW on DS.
There's nothing wrong with experimenting every once in while right? The game was pretty good, not $35 good, but good none the less. I didn't disagree by the way.
I knew it was coming.
Another reason to want a PSP...damn =( This is awsum news though..means all handheld versions of GTA on PSP...niceeee
I'd like an iphone version, or even an XBLA or PSN version
iphone should be capable tbh but i doubt they would spend time on it. i mean look at assassins creed. it's £3.49 on iphone but still like £20 on ds, even though the iphone version is supposed to have improvements to things like the graphics!
Heh, cool for the people who have a PSP. It will surely sell a lot more, especially with the ratings of it. Is this the first time the PSP has stolen a DS exclusive?:S
No one has stolen anything.. They just want to sell their game.. It's cool it weren't on the PSP in the first place and that they wanted to try it out on the DS.. It's not like PS3 vs. 360 at all.. Here people just wanna play games.. And the DS and PSP are too different to actually compare like PS3/360 When it's about 360/PS3 people wanna play the games saying it's not possible on the other system.. - Including myself. EDIT: Ok cool.. Well don't know, but haven't heard of any other either..
I'm not saying stolen as in Sony went an made Rockstar put it on the PSP. I'm asking whether this is the first time a DS exclusive has gone to the PSP?
Seeing the shocking DS sales this doesn't surprise me in the slightestd.
Seeing as the DS release was a disaster.
Wow great news! All Rockstar need to do is get a San Andreas Stories for the PSP :)
no SA stories??!!! (-.-)
i can wait for this now, i loved the other GTA games on the PSP and this should be even better
Those talking about bricking psp's. All of that is in the past, bricks are no longer bricks. it's fixable.
Boom. The PSP just got its swagger back. Now, for PS3 GTA4DLC... It's coming, don't deny it.
"Now, for PS3 GTA4DLC... It's coming, don't deny it. " if there wasn't a contract for the exclusive dlc then it wouldn't have surprised me but i think it's highly unlikely. chinatown wars going to psp is likely to be down to the poor sales of the ds version. ppl can go on about how its a great game etc etc and from reviews i hear it is, but to R* a few good reviews isn't going to cut it when they're looking on making a tidy profit.
you want GTA: Chinatown wars on your psp? well BAM there it is
I guess Rockstar learned their lesson by not focusing their most popular mature-centric IP on a mommy-kiddie platform like the Nintendo DS. Playstation made GTA the world recognized IP it is now.
now where did i heard this before?
You cant blame rockstar for releasing it on the psp, the DS has sold how many? I cant see very many hardcore games been released as an exclusive on anything with the nintendo brand now unless they make Grand theft Mario or Wii drive by
Well not to surprised and I hope some of you people buy it as it is quite a fun game. They'll have to change up a bit of the game itself but it's Leeds so I doubt any trouble will come from it.
only 500k till now, the PSP games sold 500k copies in no time when the PSP was still small in userbase. With 50mln PSP owners the sales will perform a Epic crush on the DS sales.....but we don't play sales so I hope that they make it a cool game.
Surprising and not surprising at the same time. Great game though, I might buy it again on the PSP if the additions are worth it.
HAHA NDS LOST AN EXCLUSIVE... yea this is not as fun as the PS3 VS XB2 fights.
XB2?? you mean XB1.5
game had good sales on DS considering. Of course Sony fans will compare it to the GTA that were on the PSP and the PS2 and act like it was all PSP sales.. Even with the poor tracking done by Vgchartz the game is around 600k. Sad that so many people are now jumping up and down for a game they claimed was complete garbage when it wasnt on a Sony console. Now however its the greatest game ever.. You are right. Best GTA to date. However none of the things that make it great will work on the PSP and its gimped 4 gen old control scheme..
"Of course Sony fans will compare it to the GTA that were on the PSP and the PS2 and act like it was all PSP sales." Yes because we know how spin numbers to make sure they are coming from one platform by us, the fanboys, when the reality is that the first iteration of the PSP game(GTA:LCS) did sell over 5 million, while the PS2 Version of the game sold over 3 million sales. http://vgchartz.com/games/i... oh look at Vice city stories as well, didn't sell well on the PSP like its predecessor, but hardly a failure, especially when it sold over 3 million on the PSP alone http://vgchartz.com/games/i... Say alot on who these gamers are who are playing these PSP games.
"game had good sales on DS considering" Considering what? It sold less than the PSP games even with the bigger install base? It had a 94 metacritic score, higher than either of the PSP games? The game sold like crap, end of story.
its did not do has great has the last one cause liberty city story was bought to hack the psp back then
cool, 3 GTA PSP games!
This is some great news. I loved both vice and liberty stories. This made me want to get a PSPgo. I hope the great game keep coming for the psp.
and when this sells over 1 million units for the PSP, 3rd party companies will get a wake up call at the same time when it comes to hardcore games regarding the DS.
and i just bought the DS version -.-
PSP is totally on fire. The 2009 lineup is looking pretty insane at this point: Resistance: Retribution Rockband Unplugged Gran Turismo Little Big Planet Motor Storm Arctic Edge Assassins Creed GTA Chinatown Wars Etc! Sony really has resurrected the PSP!
all they need is a good App Store/Music store/ and the comic book store on there and that will push a lot a people to buy one. we already know full PSN support is possible on the handheld, play resistance: retribution, it allowed you to play online via PSN.
... this version actually loses something in the translation.
that's true, im pretty sure they will be able to find away to translate this well, it is a game that was built for the DS. I would rather have a GTA game that's built for the PSP rather than a port. Still I wouldn't be surprised if this game sells over 100,000 (UMD and Download Combined) on the first day, especially when the PSP go is going to make an appearance when that game launches on the platform this fall.
the game looked crap on the ds!!i wanted gampelay to be like gta lcs or vcs....but every1 keeps saying this game rocks!!i'll borrow it if any of my friends buy it!
cool. as long as it takes advantage of the psp, I didnt want the DS version becuase compared to VCS it looked horrible...
I hope there's voice acting.
Go Sony! It's like they have just remembered that they have the PSP as well as the PS3 and PS2 and are now doing everything they can to pump out every game imaginable. And with digital downloads, San Andreas Stories could be possible in the future although it may be too late for that now.
I dont care for this one, is not the full GTA experience. The other 2 GTA titles on the PSP are the full PS2 experience on the go. Good time to own a PSP, GT for the win
dam i guess it wasnt meant for the ds. but now we get to say the psp has a ds port :D. + 0.6mill sold over 2mill dld lol seriously gta on ds? true numbers are higher. but meh i got it for the ds its a fun timewaster. what made it fun was the touch screen controls that changed up the traditional gta feeling.
Didn't see that coming, I wonder how they're going to change certain aspects of the game since it was MADE for a touch screen. Also do you think they're going to add anything to the soundtrack and/or voices? Either way I'll check it out to see the changes.
Screw rockstar dude, First they give microsoft exclusive DLC, then they give nintendo this stupid ass over the view top Grand theft auto and since it doesn't sell to the five year olds who play DS, they are trying to get back development costs by porting it over on the psp No one wants Crappy ds graphics over the top grand theft auto
Its a shame it couldn't generate any more sales for the DS. Rockstar might have even made a sequel. And saimcheeda whoever told you it rocks is 100 percent correct.
