    In Los Santos, GTA: San Andreas.
    I think it would be awesome. And I want a normal camera view, not like the chinatown wars.
    Maybe rockstar making a 3D port of GTA: 3, Vice City, And or GTA: San Andreas.

    I'm afraid the 3DS might have issues pulling off any of those games, remember Snake Eater 3D, better known as Metal Gear Solid 3: 15FPS Edition - Framerate Eater? Yeah. The New 3DS would probably be a better platform for a port like that, but preferably I'd like to see a portable GTA on the PSVita - it seems like no-brainer to me.

    I really don't care about the 3D GTAs, I want more Chinatown Wars. It's the only GTA game I liked enough to finish it. (although I have only played Chinatown Wars and the PSP ones, but those ones are pretty good afaik) That said, the 3DS would probably be a pretty shitty platform for it, if only because GTA on Nintendo = no sales.

    Actually I am not really that interested in a 3D GTA port for 3DS, I actually hated the ones on PSP.
    And perhaps it has problems handling those games, but I think MGS3D is no good for comparison, as it should be called MGS Lazy Porting Edition (and hell it is annoying).
    Anyway, I guess only a very downgraded version of GTA3 should run OK, but who knows.

    Well, since Gta 3 on Pc needs only 96 MB ram(at low) and a 450 MhZ Cpu(Single Core) it should run on a New 3ds!

    Well, I loved Chinatown Wars on the NDS, so yeah it would be cool to have a GTA on N3DS.

    I don't really want anymore GTA games on platforms without analog triggers for gas & brake.

    I never even noticed you can use analog triggers for gas & break on GTA.

    lol. You do realize the first GTA game was on a nintendo system right? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_(series)#Games
    Oh and what's GTA Advanced then? I do believe the GBA was made by nintendo

    What it needs on the computer, and what it'll need on the N3DS are two completely different things.

    why doesn't someone make a 3ds homebrew game of what GTA was supposed to be
    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    that's because like the author of the page said not many adults had a DS due to it not having that many titles worth grabbing

    Maybe they could do it as a topdown game like the PS1 ones. I doubt Rockstar would really go for it, though. I don't know many people into GTA myself. It's never interested me, as I never got into open-world games. I doubt Rockstar sees the 3DS market that profitable for those kinds of games. Maybe the PS Vita, if it was doing better.

    The same thing goes for the 3DS, which was my point :P

    If it was original content, I'd probably buy it. For a port, not sure.

    I would like a GTA for 3DS but I don't think we'll have one.
    China Town wars came when the DS was so successful that it was almost obligatory to release a game for it.
    Now we have those ridiculous mobiles... They'll prefer to release just for mobile if they ever attempt to make a new portable GTA.

    not gonna happen, rockstar will just end up losing money due to shit sales even with a crappy port job
    mature games on nintendo platforms just don't sell, and top down gta's wont sell on any platform it seems
