Does anyone know the date of release? I heard it may be on Black Friday.... If that is correct when should we expect so see screens?

Sony should release a double pack for Liberty & Vice Stories around that same time, many PSPs will be purchased that day.

Off topic!! What's up with the cover of Madden 09??? dude plays for the Jets now!!! WOOOOOOOOOW!

Why would many PSPs be bought that day when it's coming out for Nintendo DS? :S

Why would PSP's sell a lot that day? If anything, DS' will sell more.

Off-topic: Whatever, Favre should just go out in peace. I think he's just tarnishing his career by doing all this.

The many PSPs comment was in regards to IF Sony/Rockstar re-released Liberty City Stories & Vice City Stories as a double pack. Just to capitalize on the hype.

Sorta how a sale for Spider Man & Spider Man 2 DVDs when Spider Man 3 hit theaters.

I don't see why a bundle pack will make people buy a console, I mean they could just buy the two games separtely...

What do you mean??? They would play them same as playing them as a double pack!!! I think you got it misunderstood because he means buy GTA LCS and GTA VCS separately.
Are you gonna get them on that day??

You mean the day Chinatown Wars is released? Yea, I just got Liberty City Stories. I only got it because of the Chinatown Wars news. Ill get Vice City Stories around the holidays.

The poster said that a double pack wouldn't sell PSPs....but everyone doesn't own a PSP. Lots of people still don't own either handhand. I was never interested in the series until Chinatown Wars news was mentioned, then I got into it.

Why? PSP is better, and more expensive for a reason. Developers know that the PSP will outlast Nintendo's flavor of the week.

It should be "Chinatown Wars release date?". This was the only reason I ventured in here.

Well, Gronf...
This particular OP is rather overly excited about the new game, as it appears from all his topics on the game we know so little about.
I wonder if Lazlow mentioned this one at all on his show, is someone here keeping tabs on that front??

Wow, you mean Chinatown Wars got you into GTA??? GTA III got me into the series but Chinatown Wars on the DS got you into the GTA series. Does that mean you are going to get most of the games from now on?

Yea man....lots of people say what you said.

Ill explain. I'm a huge fan of multiplatformers, I think the exclusive thing is unfair thats just my personal thought on it.

I just recently got BACK into games in 2007. I was a deliver driver & needed something to do between runs. So I got a PSP a female recommended it.

I had heard about GTA but was never interested because it wasn't on every platform. Just Sony had it, when the news came out about Chinatown Wars, I ordered Liberty City Stories the next day. I love it!! Ill be getting Vice City Stories when I get 80% of LCS.

So in conclusion because Rockstar decided to share, I decided to support the brand. These are some cool games.

Talk about a "full on Newb!!"
The PSP series got me buying the PSP a year after it was on the market, and it had some time to settle, but software was and is slow, but Sony is streadfast in supporting it and I suspect that will maintain to be the case.

The PSP holds promise for another GTA after Leeds get back to it.

Rockstar Toronto worked on them too, as I recall.

If you've not played the PS2 or orig. Xbox GTAs, then that is strange to admit to!
Maybe due to your age as a gamer, perhaps??

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be available on March 17th in North America and March 20th in Europe.

So the game drops in 3 months! I wonder what the retail price will be. How many DS owners are picking it up on the first day?
