204w ago - The PSP's Indian summer continues, with Rockstar announcing that it's bringing GTA: Chinatown Wars to the handheld later this year.
GTA: Chinatown Wars was a critical hit when it came to the DS in March, with Rockstar's open-world formula translating beautifully to the demands of portable gaming.
The PSP version will utilise the system's more powerful architecture, featuring revised widescreen visuals as well as enhanced animations and more story missions.
To quote: "We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSPgo," said Rockstar's Sam Houser, "Rockstar Leeds has shown incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced, and incredibly addictive entry into the series."
Sony's Jack Tretton seemed suitably pleased with the news, saying, "Rockstar's work with the GTA series has been an enormous part of the success of PlayStation platforms. We're excited to welcome the critically acclaimed Chinatown Wars to the outstanding line-up of great games headed to the PSP platform this fall."
Chinatown Wars will be the third GTA game to grace the PSP, although it will be...
210w ago - Today JokerElite sent an e-mail to Rockstar Games regarding the rumors surrounding Grand Theft Auto IV and if they were true. You would be suprised.
Rockstar's reply: "Unfortunately, we are only able to provide support and infomation on our current releases and are unable to comment on any possible future releases.
We are also unable to comment on future patches or upgrades for games that are currently released." - Kind regards, Jamie.
Strange... I believe Rockstar Games is leading us on to something. If they were unable to comment on a future patch; then it was true after all? If it isn't Lost & Damned then it must be some sort of a downloadable content coming to the PlayStation 3.

To quote: "At the start when you turn on your DS with your supercard, go to the GTA NDS file on the top screen, then in the bottom screen you will see the file information, at the right hand side you will see ''SET PATCH'' click that, and you will notice that the top one is ''ENABLE PATCH'; which is ticked, well untick that and start the game!!"

219w ago - Coming hot off the heels of industry analyst Michael Patcherciting he believes the Lost and Damned DLC will sell 2 million on Xbox 360 and the next full GTA title will come out next year, PlayStation Insider has received an anonymous tip.
To quote: The tipster cites Microsoft and Take-Two Interactive's (parent company of GTA developer Rockstar) original press release about the episodic content claiming, it was carefully worded PR hyperbole, only confirming the episodic content would only be a downloadable exclusive, mentioning nothing of future retail releases.
The game will likely be released mid-year 2010 in the storm of hype Take-Two will be producing for it's next full release Grand Theft Auto title. It will come with at least the Lost and Damned episode available on Xbox Live right now, as well as the next episode, and will retail on a disc for around $40 on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The source also believes the second episode will be released on Xbox Live later this year, and we also have a very strong hunch we will see some more of the next episode by this summer.
While we have no other details, we will report them as soon as we have official information. Rockstar has yet...
