GTA On 3DS


Mr Vice City

Recommended Posts

I was thinking about all the various software from third-partys for 3DS and it occurred to me that despite things like Resident Evil, Street Fighter, Metal Gear etc there was still 1 missing - GTA. Now a GTA on 3DS could certainly work technically as the 3DS has greater processing power and graphical ability than PS2 and 3DS game cards have the storage capacity of a dual-layer dvd. The motion control would allow for some new ideas perhaps and ofc the 3D aspect. I imagine VC or SA would have looked remarkable in 3D. It would also be alot cheaper than development costs are for 360/PS3 (and their successors).

 

So, GTA on 3DS, your thoughts?

Intriguing idea!You should have posted this in the gta v topic if your talking about a console you would like to see in v however if it's just generally, it ok lol.gif I personally think it would not sell well as the graphics would not be that realistic though it would be ok for games such as ctw. It will be interesting and amazing to experience gta in 3d however I'm not sure if it would work.

Good plan. They did "stories" for the PSP would be great to see a version in 3D... S...

I'd be tempted to buy a 3DS and the game if they made a San Andreas 3D Stories tounge.gif

I recall GTA Chinatown Wars not selling well on DS, so maybe R* might just create a new portable one for the PSP2 and then trying out a 3DS game.

Actually chinatown wars, if i remember correctly, won a reward for one of the best handheld games of the year something like that and it was also rated high

if they do make a gta for the 3ds then i hope its like the gta on the psp

Not going to lie though, if Rockstar does decide to make a GTA on the 3DS (or PSP2), it'd be a lot nicer (in my opinion) if they go back to the more traditional camera angle they have used in pretty much every 3D GTA game.

Just because a game was rated high and won awards doesn't mean it sold well. Remember Bully? Great game, but no one bought it.

 

Chinatown Wars sells under 90,000 copies

 

Opening month of 90,000 copies which for a GTA game (specially one on DS) is nothing.

@Ryan - thanks for moving this to the proper place

 

GTA ChinaTown Wars has sold 1.1 million copies on DS so it wasn't a failure (DS games only need to sell 300-400k units to break even) and 3DS it would possibly do alot better seeing as 3DS is near certain to have a much larger proportion of it's user-base be orientated to the core market.

 

It does make me wonder what RockStar Leeds are upto. They've finished that music game for PSP and they have done handheld GTA's before (and I think LCS/VCS both turned out quite nicely).

An old-style top-down GTA on 3DS would be great. I'm all for it.

Prior to filing a bug against any of my code, please consider this response to common concerns.

All you have to do is look at the history of GTA games to KNOW that there will be a 3DS GTA in the V canon.

 

GTA1 had a GTA1 on the Gameboy with Color compatibility. GTA2 had a GTA2 on the Gameboy Color only. GTA3 had GTA Advance on the Gameboy Advance. GTA4 had Chinatown Wars on the DS.

 

GTA5 WILL have a GTA5-era game on either the DSi or the 3DS. Simple as that.

Are people really into handhelds like that for serious games these days?

Yes. It is a thriving market that even most cellphone companies are trying to break into now.

Nintendo is lucky that they have a exclusive game "POKEMON" otherwise they would not be making sales !

Erm hello Ryan, you moved this topic to the V section 3 years ago, can you move it somewhere else now. I think the bin is the best place to file it.

 

Anyway CTW sold terribly on the DS.
