    I can't see how this could work on the PSP.

    I think he was being sarcastic. From what I hear, the tutorials are horrible...

    This seems as good of an idea as GTA:China Town Wars on the PSP

    Well, I for one thought this game was pretty mediocre. I'm not gonna sit through 2 hours of tutorials to learn a game. There's complicated, then there's overly complicated.

    Also, don't see how this would work on the PSP, seeing as the stylus was pretty crucial to navigating your thingy around the screen. It's not like Chinatown Wars where you can replace the mini-games or whatever you want to call the stylus sequences with button combos or something.

    This game was ALL touchscreen controlled, right? It will probably be a nightmare to play on the PSP, unless they change the game drastically to make up for the lack of a touchscreen.

    Aye, I didn't play much of this game, myself.
    And the reason I said that about China Town is because even though it easily worked on the PSP, no one really wanted to buy it, most people are already had the DS version and or GTA Liberty City Stories on the PSP. So really it was just a bad idea to put China Town on the PSP and they should have just kept it on the DS

    how the hell? This idea is just as retarded as making a DS emulator for the PSP.

    There is one. It can only run some tech demos, but still, there is one.

    Anyway, the Chinatown didn't do well on the PSP or the DS. I guess that it was too mature for the DS and for the PSP, people are too young to remember that GTA was rooted in a top-down, Chinatown Wars-style game. And GTA: CW on the DS didn't have much in the way of touchscreen necessities.

    Hmm... The game better have something different... Like some kinda graphical difference xD.

    I never knew this game was some how related to Yggdra... If I knew that, I would've gotten the DS version a loong time ago!

    Related like Final Fantasy Tactics Advance/A2 is related to Final Fantasy 13


    Edit: what the crap? I edited my post but it "merged" it?

    I mean, they're porting a game that was heavily based on the touchscreen to the PSP. Look at the last DS game that was ported to PSP. Moderately okay game + Port to PSP = Very bad idea.

    I don't see how age has anything to do with it. The PSP already has two full size GTA adventures, and most people recognized it as a shameless attempt to salvage a DS commercial failure. I think most PSP owners don't appreciate the concept of second hand DS games.

    i really dont think the game'll be remotely playable on a psp, unless they lower the difficulty a little.

    the controls are very challenging, do't know how they wanna port this, if they could all, they shoud have to come up with a new complete new control scheme, a simple port would make the game unplayable

    Even a "second-hand DS game" that was fun as hell? I don't care where the game came from, as long as it's fun, then I don't care. It may have been a commercial failure but it was a critical success.

    Knights in the Nightmare on psp is like trying to put ketchup on my foot....WTF!!! Chinatown Wars may have been a flop in sells but you gotta atmit it was fun to see a GTA that well developed on the DS. When I 1st heard about Gta on Ds I was like...horrible game in the making but I was surprised. When I heard it was being ported to Psp I was liek WTF....Now this.....
