The dutch gaming site Gamez.NL has a news item about a PSP version of GTA. Confirmed is that it will be set in Liberty CIty.
But it will NOT be a direct port. All missions will be new. Rockstar expects to release the PSP version "somewhere in April , 2005" the dutch gaming website say's.
April , 2005! That's only like 4 months! I think that's because they can just use the same map and engine , because the PSP is allmost as good (processor / grapic card) as the PS2.
I hope that this time they will give it a reasonable ammount of marketing , we dont want it to be like GTA:Advance. I can allmost see myself sitting in the bus to school , giving some inocent people a new hole in their body
EDIT , here is a translated article , translated by : vALKYR:
| Rockstar surprised the world with the announcement of Grand Theft Auto for the PSP. Until now, more information of the game was released to the public.|
After the announcement, Rockstar made people think it was going to be a whole new story but that isn't completly true. The PSP Version of GTA is going to based on the very successful Grand Theft Auto 3.
To call it a conversion of the original game might be wrong. All missions in GTA for the PSP are new. It is still unknown what elements of the other games (VC, SA) have been implemented in the new GTA.
Distributor Take 2 Interactive wants to release the PSP Version of Grand Theft Auto somewhere in April 2005.
