Rockstar bringing GTA: Chinatown Wars & music game to iPhone

Game developer to release popular gangland mobile game on the iPhone App Store

Rockstar Games posted two separate announcements today (here and here) revealing that two upcoming PSP projects--Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Beaterator--will also be coming to the iPhone this fall. No major details besides release windows were revealed for the two games, but Rockstar is promising to provide screens in the near future.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars released on the Nintendo DS earlier this year to high review scores but less-than-stellar sales, which may have prompted a PSP port. Beaterator will be a beefed-up version of a web application released on Rockstar's website in 2005.

The news briefs from Rockstar are reprinted below. Keep an eye on GamePro and iPhone Game of the Day for coverage of both the PSP and iPhone versions of these upcoming games.

We're proud to announce that Beaterator is coming to the iPhone and iPod touch this Fall. Previously announced for the PlayStation Portable system, Beaterator features thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, and puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that's portable, accessible and fun.

Look for more info and screenshots from the iPhone and iPod versions very soon...

The critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, currently available for the Nintendo DS? and coming October 20th for the PlayStation Portable system, will also be making its way to the iPhone and iPod touch this Fall. Look out for screenshots coming very soon.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

MSI PS63

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
