So we all know that every GTA has been ported at one point or another, so I got to thinking about chinatown wars... Do you guys think it will be ported a few months after it's release to the PSP or PS2, or do you think that this will be the first GTA to not be ported? Personally, I think depending on how well it's received will determine if they port it or not. Discuss.

I doubt it. They didn't port GTA Advance so I doubt this will be ported IF it's not 3D. Of course, whether or not it's 3D, I'd love a port.

That's true. I was actually thinking of the main series when i thought of this, but I guess we'll just have to see if it has some sort of connection with IV to make it legit enough to be part of the main series.

I haven't played IV yet so I'm guessing it's based in the III era because it supposed to deal with the Triad gang. Are the Triads in IV?

Triads aren't but Chinatown is. I didn't read the press release so i missed the "Triad crime syndicate" part. So yeah I guess you're right it probably will be based in the III era.

If it is ported it would be ported to Wii, it would make sense to that.

GTA on wii... that could be fun. Even top down. Just because the story elements, in my opinion, have been better recently than GTA, London, and GTA 2.

Better follow suit with the others and drop in price if it ports... otherwise Rockstar delays their income until they do.

Yep, there are a couple which run most commercial games at full speed and without issues, google has the answers.

While 2D games in a retro sense were discussed about a month ago in Play magazine, I think adding new colors and details and reviving them is not going to cut it. As neat as Pacman is on the Namco Museum update, it still has a qualtiy from the originals that define a place and time.

GTA has evolved in a manner where that would be FAR too much of a step back. This game really caters to mature gamers who have already Been There, Done That.

They just change the control system... The Wii uses motion control, PSP's have an analog nub, Dualshocks have 2 analog sticks. They are all basically made for the same purpose - duh dozingoff.gif

I'm not really sure why you quoted that and didn't say anything afterward... and just because of that I hope they port it to the Wii. Get that console some GTA.

I'll then proceed to kill in topdown or 3D GTA... with a nunchuk!
