GTA SA now on IOS: Waste of time?

Recommended Posts

southparkmayor

GTA SA has recently been published on the app store for iOS devices after being ported from the console or PC version. As most of you probably know. However Do you find this to be a waste of time and effort on part of rockstar? Could this time and effort have been put on improving GTA V? We could have had heists already. Or be closer to having GTA V on PC or next gen consoles. What do you think? P.S. I haven't posted since the GTA V released :p

Yes. Unfortunately Rockstar's only employee has decided to focus his attention on this pointless, terrible game, which no one will buy.

Playing GTA on a mobile device is awesome, I love to play Vice City on my Kindle Fire HD when I'm stuck somewhere waiting for awhile and need to kill time. I fly a lot and it's especially nice to have when you're stuck in an airport. So I'd say no this is far from a waste of time unless they can port GTA 5 to mobile devices, but some how I think we'll have to settle for GTA SA. Now would I ever play it at home? Probably not since I can just fire up GTA 5 but GTA SA is still a badass game to have on the go.

Waste of time? Don't you see all of these people who beat off to the thought of a SA 2.0? I'm sure it'll do very well on IOS.

Only the GTA games are hard as sh*t on phones and tablets.

 

I hope people will have a grand time trying to do the RC plane mission with touchscreen controls.

More proof Rockstar has a deal with iOS as this game was only released for Apple. Still no word on Android of Windows release same f*cking story as the iFruit app.

I'm not taking about the actual port exactly but more about how they waste their resources and time on porting a game to an unsuitable platform rather than on improving GTA V and bringing it to PC or ps4.

 

 

Mobile Version developed by War Drum Studios

https://itunes.apple.com/nz/app/grand-theft-auto-san-andreas/id763692274?mt=8

 

Case closed I guess?

 

I dont see War Drum Studios there.

I don't even know why they bothered with such a sucky game to begin with.

How much time did it take for them to release the iFruit app on Android devices though?

I hardly enjoy phones to play games. It's cool who want to but after trying ( iOS 6) myself it consumes battery immensely. Updating to iOS 7 could see a slight difference. I am skipping it and not worth it, imo.

During that time it was not even working properly on iOS. You couldn't even log in.

How can you be certain they aren't porting GTA V to the PC as we're talking?

Waste of time? Yes, things like this were bad enough on consoles and PC

But seriously speaking, hopefully this will keep the San Andreas fanboys which hate on GTA V off these forums for a while.

The GTA mobile games are developed by a different team so I don't see how the development of the iOS game affects GTA V

Wardrum studios develop the mobile versions I believe, not Rockstar. So no, it wasn't a waste of time.

A Rockstar studio responsible for mobile ports is working on this one, so no reason to get all mad at R* here. It has nothing to do with their other games they are working on.

 

As for the GTAV PC and next-gen (PS4, XBO) port - I see it coming - the only backup I have for this is GTA Online.

 

If it wasn't online, I wouldn't think that R* would care to port GTAV for the PC platform and next-gen consoles.

So just because someone is a moderator they have to agree with everyone and not post opinions?

No way is it a waste of time bring classic GTA onto mobile devices. It just shows how amazing tech it moving forward and what a magnificent achievement it is bring the entire San Andreas game onto a mobile phone. Years ago my PC struggled to run this game it just shows anything is possible.

No, he said "I don't even know why they bothered with such a sucky game to begin with" When instead, he could say, "I will not get the app, because I don't like it" That one right there sounds like he is giving his opinion, but the other sounds like he is insulting many people's opinions. Many people love the game, and is glad it came to mobile.

 

Also, to SonOfLiberty, if you were a real moderator, why won't you move this to the GTA SA threads, and move it out of GTA V?

It clearly isn't in the right spot.

Well they bothered because San Andreas is clearly not a sucky game for most GTA fans. This is just a testament to it's legacy as probably technically the greatest and most popular GTA game in the entire series, that 9 years on, it is still being reproduced for fans who wanna play it on their smartphones.

 

This coming from someone who's favorite GTA game is Vice City and not San Andreas.

 

I'm not into all that phone gaming stuff anyway, so it don't interest me. Pointless ? I'd say so yes. Sucky ? Personal opinions are subjective, but we all know that overall this game is far from sucky, nowhere even remotely so.

No, but he could do it in a more respectful manner and not seem like a dick .

Moved to the San Andreas forums. :) I don't think it is a waste of time, I think it's a waste of resources if they don't do it. ;)
