Grand Theft Auto III Hits iPhone, iPad, Android on Dec. 15
The latest in the string of continual reminders that tablets and smartphones are becoming legitimate pieces of gaming hardware, Rockstar has announced a release date for a mobile port of Grand Theft Auto III: Dec. 15.
The Playstation 2 classic is in its 10th anniversary this year, and in celebration, Rockstar is releasing Grand Theft Auto III: 10th Anniversary Edition (go figure) for a mere $4.99 on select iOS and Android devices. And here’s the good news: you won’t necessarily need a dual-core super-great smartphone to play it on. (Bad news: you will need a decent phone.)
Rockstar’s press release says the following devices will be supported:
- Apple: iPad, iPad 2, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S.
- Android phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x.
- Android tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive.
The game also looks pretty sweet, considering that Rockstar has sent screens from it running on Android tablets.
