Rockstar bringing GTA: Chinatown Wars & music game to iPhone

Game developer to release popular gangland mobile game on the iPhone App Store

Rockstar Games posted two separate announcements today (here and here) revealing that two upcoming PSP projects--Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Beaterator--will also be coming to the iPhone this fall. No major details besides release windows were revealed for the two games, but Rockstar is promising to provide screens in the near future.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars released on the Nintendo DS earlier this year to high review scores but less-than-stellar sales, which may have prompted a PSP port. Beaterator will be a beefed-up version of a web application released on Rockstar's website in 2005.

The news briefs from Rockstar are reprinted below. Keep an eye on GamePro and iPhone Game of the Day for coverage of both the PSP and iPhone versions of these upcoming games.

We're proud to announce that Beaterator is coming to the iPhone and iPod touch this Fall. Previously announced for the PlayStation Portable system, Beaterator features thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, and puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that's portable, accessible and fun.

Look for more info and screenshots from the iPhone and iPod versions very soon...

The critically acclaimed Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, currently available for the Nintendo DS? and coming October 20th for the PlayStation Portable system, will also be making its way to the iPhone and iPod touch this Fall. Look out for screenshots coming very soon.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
