Is GTA coming for the 3DS?
#2 Posted by XXXCrazyDawgXXX (46 posts) -

With GTA 5 coming for the PS3 I seriously doubt it. And Rockstar has been pretty stingy with any kind of news on that one. If they do, it won't be anytime soon.

I was hoping that the GTA III 10'th Anniversary Edition would be announced for the 3DS, but it wasn't. GTA V will not come to 3DS, though the DS got it's own GTA, but I dunno if it sold very well, but that could determine if the 3DS ever gets one.

Unlikely, I doubt it will even be on the Vita. The best you could hope for is a re-release of the PS2 games.

Considering u can get it on your phone I don't see why they wouldn't throw something together and milk the original gta3 even more

The order of mobile platforms it is most likely to land goes like this 1. iOS/Android 2. 3DS 3. All others Simple fact is the 3DS is the best selling traditional handheld console while iOS/Android ship 250 million devices each year. The earlier they release it on the 3DS the better it will sell, remember each GTA on PSP sold progressively worse eventually with GTA CW selling worst on PSP.

If anything I would expect GTA on 3DS to either be a remake of 3 or San Andreas. The already released 3 on iphone/android I think that Rockstar has a lot of options with the 3DS if they utilize the features. Was Chinatown Wars DS very successful? I love that game.

I disagree, as sells really have nothing to do with it, the Vita is a better platfrom for a GTA game out of any of those platfroms. It has the power, two analog sticks etc.

I would argue strongly that a GTA would sell loads more on the Vita then the 3DS even if the system itself has more sales. As most people who buy a 3DS aren't buying it for GTA like games, they want Mario and other Nintendo orented games that even the kids can relate to.

Until some numbers come in for RE; Revelations and MGS 3D, I would say that's debatable.

I think the 3DS may get it's own GTA. They definitely could have gotten the 10 year anniversary on the 3DS, but I think a 3DS exclusive would be better. Like Chinatown wars which was originally DS exclusive, the 3DS will probably get some sort of spin off, hopefully it's full 3D and in third person more like a console GTA. I imagine the 3D effect would be pretty awesome for GTA, and the physical and touch screen control combination really benefited the DS version. I just hope it stays exclusive unlike Chinatown Wars which was ported to the PSP and the Ipod.

I never stated ''hardcore'' titles could not succeed on a Nintendo platform, as those titles you mentioned will be bought inevitably by ''hardcore'' gamers who bought a 3DS including myself. But even those games i would say are better suited for what the Vita has to offer in terms of controls, power and even the Vita fanbase overall. As i would argue that the Vitas fanbase is made more up of ''hardcore'' gamers than the 3DS. Nintendo systems sell more because they appeal to a wider demographic, moms would rather buy their kids the system with Mario on it then a system with Resistance or Uncharted.

I could never imagine a full fledged GTA game (that's not top down) that would work on the 3DS. It's doesn't even have a second analog stick for camera control, you'd have to buy that 1990's tumor attachment they released (circle pad pro) to play it sufficently. This is why i wish they revise the hardware with secondary analog control and i'm hoping at E3 they show something like that, though i'm a little doubtful.

Still love my 3DS, but i just don't see how such a game would work on the system, hence why i have a Vita for those kinds of games.

You don't know that per say. The 3DS is young. There is nothing they can't do on the 3DS really. It can have two circle pads, it can have four shoulder buttons if they want, and as of now Nintendo has said game cards can go up to 8GB while Sony is allowing Vita cards to reach 4GB. It would work just as well on both platforms, and getting less sales on a much bigger user base is no one's fault but the marketing department of the publisher.

The stylus could easily mimick the aiming reticule and it could do it well. It could be like the pointer controls on the Wii (Bully, Godfather, etc) I think the folks at Rockstar are talented enough to make it work well

That, or Metroid Prime: Hunters, or Kid Icarus: Uprising. I'd go as far to say that it's even better than analog stick aim due to precision, about the closest you can get to a computer mouse on the go, and doubly so compared to the PS Vita's anemic analog sticks with very short throw (about half that of the 3DS Circle Pad). For that matter, I preferred playing GTA III/VC/SA with KB+M for the most part (except flying aircraft, that badly needed a flight stick or at least a gamepad), simply because the precision of mouse aim easily lets me take out armies of mooks with a single headshot each, even with the basic pistol. Auto-aim for gamepad controls, on the other hand, went for much more inefficient body shots and often even targeted the person I wasn't aiming for.

Vita cards can be up to 8GB of space as well and the added power the handheld has over the 3DS will work wonders.

That only works sufficently for first person games, but with GTA you'd have to use the buttons as well so it wouldn't work well, as you'd have to constantly move your hand to manupulate the camera with the stylus as well as try to steal a car or take cover with the buttons, it wouldn't work as smoothly as the Vita. Since the 3DS is not as powerful as the vita, the world would be quiet limited and not as detailed as you could get on the Vita as well. That's just the truth, i have both system but i can't lie to myself in saying that the 3DS would work well or even better then a GTA on the Vita as that in itself is a lie. The 3DS just doesn't have the power or controls to really put a full fledge third person GTA game on it. I think even Rockstar understands this.

I'd rather see a Just Cause game on 3DS than a GTA, but that's neither here nor there. To whoever said Vita's got a larger fanbase: keep dreaming. Nintendo's always had the lion's share of the handheld pie, and that isn't going to change on account of Sony. They proved with the PSP that hardware isn't everything, or even most of it.

Sony has a larger ''hardcore'' fanbase i'd argue, the DS line always has the bigger share because it appeals to a wider demographic. Moms would rather buy the handheld with Mario on it than Resistance or Uncharted. Sales have little to do with whether a handheld is good or not though.

The PSP, Xbox and PS2 handled GTA just fine and the 3DS is on par or far above those (like having 4 times the amount of RAM found in PSP/PS2, and double that of a Xbox)

Well they could make a smaller scaled GTA on the 3DS with lower qualiy textures and smaller polygon count. But i wouldn't wanting them wasting their time with that when we could get a lot more out of the more beefer handheld. We all want a GTA on out favorite system, so i understand why you want a GTA on your platfrom of choice. But i still couldn't imagine it, i beileve Rockstar would just do what they did with the DS and PSP where at most they'll bring a top down GTA to the DS and the PSP gets the bigger scaled games because of it's power and control scheme. GTA is still one series that i can never see fully going to a Nintendo handheld unless they beef up both the systems power and usability.

I could be wrong though and they might even be working on 3DS GTA right now which would be awesome, and i would enjoy it as well. But i personally think it's just people lying to themselves because they so despritly love their platform of choice that they can't stand the fact that it's just not as flexable as the competition when it comes to this partiular games.

Well sure, it doesn't appeal to the most people like Mario does, the ''hardcore'' gaming market always tends to sell less. A lot of people don't know Resistance,Twisted Metal or even Kid Icarus and Luigis Mansion. This is what Nintendo does a better job with, they have games that are able to appeal to both sides of the fence, everbody knows and enjoys Donky Kong, Mario, Zelda, Metroid. The large majority of games pushed out by Sony are unknown to a lot of people besides those who really play games as a hobby.

All I can say is I'm hoping that RockStar will consider putting a new GTA on the 3DS & Wii/WiiU. It would be nice if they put the GTA 3 10th annivarsary on the 3DS.

But we probably be lucky enough if Nintendo put the older GTA games (2 on GBC & 1 for GBA) on the Virtual Console.

It would be cool with the Wii U as the screen could open up some cool possiblites. It could even be possible GTA V will come to Wii U as they have not announced any platforms the game will be on not even in the trailer. Granted, rockstar tends to avoid Nintendo home consoles, but i think it mainly because they haven't had the power to handle the game engines they use. But the Wii U should be strong enough for a new GTA game.

No Vita cards are only 2GB, and like the 3DS can be up to 4GB like Uncharted, but 4GB cards also increase the cost of games.

It sounds like you want a console GTA on a handheld, and while that has been done, and is do-able today it would be a much better experience on consoles. I'd rather it not copy + paste the home versions and hope it would be unique to the device it's on rather than try to be something it can't possibly be.

It was most successful on the DS. I wouldn't call 1.2 million units bad. Sure, it's not an epic success but you'd have to say Super Street Fighter IV 3D had poor sales (1 million from Capcom) too despite the fact that Capcom was more than pleased with it. The issue Rockstar had was they only aired commercials for Chinatown Wars during WWE Monday Night Raw and South Park. Don't get me wrong, those are probably good target demographics but they need to push it on networks that push other programming as well.

To be honest, I don't think a GTA 3DS would work out. Do you know how bad chinatown wars sold? Before anyone says this, I'm not a sony fanboy. In fact, I don't own a Vita, I own a 3DS. I just think a Vita GTA would sell better, because a lot of adults and teens own Vitas, and their old enough to play GTA, unlike a lot of kids who own nintnedo consoles. I remember, I was in gamestop a while back. I noticed a little kid was with his mom, and their were selling his old wii, so he could get an Xbox 360. The kid looked really excited, however, when he went to pick out some games, a store clerk pointed out, that Black Ops was probably to graphic for someone his age. My point is, is that no (decent) parent is going to get their kids a GTA game, considering that it has drugs, cursing, prostitution, and pointless murder.

In fact, I don't own a Vita, I own a 3DS. I just think a Vita GTA would sell better, because a lot of adults and teens own Vitas, and their old enough to play GTA, unlike a lot of kids who own nintnedo consoles. I remember, I was in gamestop a while back. I noticed a little kid was with his mom, and their were selling his old wii, so he could get an Xbox 360. The kid looked really excited, however, when he went to pick out some games, a store clerk pointed out, that Black Ops was probably to graphic for someone his age. My point is, is that no (decent) parent is going to get their kids a GTA game, considering that it has drugs, cursing, prostitution, and pointless murder.Spinnerweb
And hot wiring in the new one. I'm telling you, that game is a guide to living the wild way :P But if Chinatown Wars sold badly it deserved it - it sucked.

it wasnt that great. reminded me of the two original GTA's (obviously with some better production values, gameplay and such) but it didn't keep my attention for long.

I think I might be the only one who absolutely loved CW :P Found it way better than the other GTA games. Having said that, "GTA" in general is pretty mediocre to me so CW really surprised me.

I actually agree 100% with this

After the sales of China Town Wars, I seriously doubt it.
