Following the recent release of the iPhone 4S, it looks like Rockstar wants to now branch out into the mobile app market with its worldwide success, GTA range. And now, with an inbuilt A5 dual core processor,with up to 7 times faster graphics, there has never been a better time then now to upgrade to the new iPhone 4S, or get an iPad 2.
The results of what games companies can bring to the iPhone and also the iPad are amazing. Similar products such as Infinity Blade 2, completely shocked everyone, with to the pixel clear graphics, everyone at who witnessed this at the iPhone 4S launch were truly taken aback.
But back to Rockstar and the GTA Series, they recently announced that the full GTA 3 game would be available not exclusively for the iPhone 4S, but will also go onto the Apple iPad 2, and also the Android market. All because its their 10th anniversary coming up. We say nows the time to upgrade to a iPad 2 because the mobile version will play on dual core processors, with the single core not able to handle the kind of hardware that Rockstar are going to need.
Yes, it is exciting, yes we want more, yes we want it now. But sadly Rockstar are yet to give a formal release date for their GTA III iPad app, although according to the online site IGN, and logically the 22nd of November should be the release date, as thats when the anniversary is. However, taking a game which heavily uses controller pads to a game which works with touch is no mean feat. The successes of GTA Chinatown for example really do reflect how hard it is. We hope the guys at Rockstar work out a way of overcoming this issue instead of slamming on a tiny D Pad.
Now as we know it, GTA 3 set the benchmark for really, truly immersive gameplay in a 3D environment, where the user is given free reigns, into a completely foreign and new world. Alongside, packing it with loads of missions, tasks, special items to keep the gamer occupied for days on end. This unique selling point propelled the GTA series to clench the best selling release, year after year, ultimately becoming a blockbuster consuming a huge user base. So yes, alot of peoples hopes are riding on them getting this right.
So much so, that Rockstar has put on sale a limited edition figure of Claude, which is 1:16, dressed in what he appears in the GTA game, cargo trousers, bomber jacket, LCS prison uniform, alongside a few lethal weapons, so 18+ please. All for just $150, ouch, but if you love GTA you will love this.
