    Just announced at the Nintendo press event. New Grand Theft Auto, new and exclusive for DS. Chinatown Wars is what I think the name is. Pretty cool news.

    hope it will be hybrid like III 2d and 3d, that would be fun.

    I hope it ain't like the GBA one, it was decent but it lacked the fun of the other games.

    For me GTA is only good when you can waste hours doing stupid stuff. GTA 4 the mission improved a lot but the mindless fun was lacking.

    Ninja Gaiden was 3D...and it was excellent.

    We'll have to wait for the screenshots and then judge it...

    Well 3D on 2D anyway.

    I'll be happy with just GTA 1 engine as long as I can do mindless shit with this game.

    Probably not nearly as much stuff as something like San Andreas, but the DS seems to be the preferred platform for doing "mindless shit." I think there's a lot they can with the game. I think it just depends on who's at the helm.

    why can't they make it like Driver 2 for gba but better graphics and stuff but the graphics should cope with tht of driver 2. Hopefully they won't spoil it like insecticide

    Honestly, can you see GTA running on a DS?
    No doubt it's going to be awful.

    We will see about that one, Rockstargames has capable devs no doubt about it, and who knows ? Maybe they did it like Activison and used a new selfmade engine (Activisions can draw more polygons than normal for example).

    I think, if they have gone so far to announce something, they must have something they can be proud of too.

    The GBA version was no fail, it just was 2D, and some ppl don't like that.

    Also the version GBA was supposed to be 3D too at first, but now it got only 2D because it was too hard to pull it off (maybe Graphic State had to do something with it ?).

    Anyway, let's just wait and see until tomorrow 19:45.

    EDIT:

    Guys ? this is scary.... look at that pic again:

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    the date (15.06.08) is right ! except the month....
