3DS needs some good games to boost its sales. GTA clones will only make it look worse.

EDIT:Yeah the profits took a nosedive because people finally realized that THQ can only rip off of other good games and that GTA is better.

3ds sales are very good for 1 month.

And dont forget this entire project was cancelled. The game was a multiplat

this probably has more to do with thq's profits taking a nosedive........

EA had a mega profit nosedive and they delayed and cancelled projects to

In terms of Graphics, GTA4 wipes the floor with Saints Row. Saints Row bitch slaps GTA4 though when it comes to the Story and Gameplay.

GTA 4 was a step backwards as far as content is concerned. Saints Row 2 is THE true successor to San Andreas. I hope that with the GTA, Rockstar don't ignore those Gamers who want a Super Serious Game that is realistic, and return to their roots with GTA and make just an all out fun game just like previous GTA games on PS2!

Wait isn't this only Saints Row: Drive-by that has been cancelled? As far as i was aware, there were two Saints Row games in development for 3DS. Wasn't Drive By just a mini game like Red Faction Battlegrounds?

@MARIOFTW: No the same game was coming to PSn and XBL to let you unlock contet fron S.R 3. you were also going to be abloe to unlock content in S.R.3 for Drive by as well.

Oh no, I had this on pre-order :(.
