    Well this comes as no suprise, I even thought they'd do this before the DS game came out:

    Expect this to also come to mobile phones next year.

    I'd wager they'll ALL be as good as or better than the DS version. They want more money from the game and the DS version didn't sell well, even though you have to admit (even if you don't care for the game yourself) that technically, it is a VERY well-done game.
    When the new versions outsell the DS version, then they will jump back to crying "piracy" on the DS.

    Wow Rockstar is really juicing that game for all it's got. I'd call them stupid but they're actually very clever

    There are more people with Jailbraked Ipod Touches than People with Flashcarts for DS. And there are more people with CFW For PSP then people who have flashcarts.

    True, I have a feeling it will sell less on the psp and ipod combined than it did on the DS.

    An iPhone version sounds better than a PSP one.. better graphics keeping the touch screen things.

    But I already finished it on the DS so whatever [​IMG]

    Why exactly is this bad? Now more people get to enjoy this game. They didn't remove anything from the DS version when they made it just because it was going to come out on other platforms too. You're not losing out on anything.

    The game sold really badly on the DS compared to what they put into the project. They need to make their money off the game somehow.

    Isn't the PSP enough? Yes, it sold bad on the DS but what doesn't, considering piracy is so easy? Okay, it's easy on the PSP too.

    But this is way too ridiculous, they'll end up releasing it for regular mobile phones with JAVA.
