I wish there was more to post about this game trailer, but all standard Internet detective tricks haven't turned up anything worthwhile. What you see is what we know.

Featured in the trailer is a bank robbery, high speed police chases, and the ambiguous release date of "Summer 2009". It's anyone's guess whether this is going to be another GTA-like game, some kind of racing game, or even a shooter.

Think you have an idea of what this game is? Come speculate in the thread on our forums or leave a comment.

    Probably a Chinatown Wars-type game, based on the four seconds or so of an actual game screen in the video.

    And that trailer is definitely a pre-rendered cutscene. I'm surprised you'd even speculate about that.

    Obviously it is GTA game or a rip off. You can tell by the font.

  • The Cartel

    From the forum for the lazy:

    "We have built a massive multiplayer online game that takes the concept and feel behind the Grand Theft Auto series and brings it to the iPhone in a direct input based game, named The Cartel.
    Some of the main features of the game are:
    in-game world economy
    ability to acquire wealth through the development of commodities
    perform actions to increase your status and wealth
    ability to interact with other players through a chat system and the Forums
    able to join gangs and form cartels that benefit all percipients
    use the Player Marketplace to barter your way to the top
    buy and equip a variety of items to enable your missions and character’s ability
    fight your way to the top individually or using your cartel’s power

    The goal of the game is simple; use any of the available features to make the most money and form the most powerful Cartel."

    Who wants to bet that under the hood of this good looking GTA clone it's an iMafia type pyramid scheme game trying to scam us for micropayments?

    • Lord Gek

      If this trailer is for Cartel, then it is pretty clear the gameplay has NOTHING to do with the video since it doesn't even mention anything about direct arcade 3D rendered anything but just what one would expect from any other iMafia clone (although this one SET in the world of something like GTA).

    • http://rpg-fanatics.de crishnak

      If it´s a iMafia-style game, Gameloft has reached a new low-point. I mean, their games on the idevices have been great so far, but they also were when they first started out making games for N-Gage 1g and cellphones. Once they had their hits on those platforms, they started remaking those under different names with the exactly same gameplay. If that´s the way where they are heading on the iPhone/iPod Touch they would finally loose my respect (as if they would care ;) ).
      Ok, an iMafia-game is different but as unimaginative as a game could be.

      • Brad Newsom

        How does 3d rendering automatically make people think of the crappy browserbased game iMafia? What correlations were made to compare the too. There are more MMO's out there that aren't just Browser-Based Mafia clones.

      • http://rpg-fanatics.de crishnak

        Tell me one besides Parallel Kingdoms and Watchmen. I´d love to play it because a good graphical MMO is what I´m missing.
        Somehow I doubt there will be an GTA-like MMO with a huge city, gangs, gang wars and so on.
        Well, I have to admit Gameloft has priviously made such games for Java enabled phones, but they weren´t online. Still I doubt it, till I see it.

    all set with iMafia clones, if that is what it is... you waste your time on one, its as if you wasted your time and played them all...and eventually people with no lives and or cheats/hacks will crush you, so what is the point?

    i was interested until the MMO part came up...i'll pass

    • Brad Newsom

      Your joking right? When someone mentions Mafia, it doesn't mean iMafia or Mafia Wars. Do you know anything about the game Mafia or what Mafia means?

  • Andrew H

    well the graphics are way too intense for an iphone which is a no brainer. They even look far fetched for a PC. I haven't played a GTA like game on the iphone that hasn't in some way been limited to horrible controls. If this game came out and had a third person view (not top down) and was similar to GTA then I would buy it. I would love a game like this for the iphone. I hope if they do make this game that they will add two different versions or atleast a graphics option in the game because the 3GS would play very nicely with great graphics but the 3G wouldn't do as well.

    Would love to see this.

    let's given them the benifit of the doubt. we dont know what kind of game it is and no one knows how powerful the new iphone is. this game could exist on psp and the iphone gs is equally good from that they say

    No its not 50cent you berk, its just a black man. I can't find anything else on the web about this...seems odd.

    If this turns out to be some iMafia type game it will be dissapointing. The one thing missing for the iPhone is a good GTA type game that isnt a top down version.

    The 3GS can handle it, might be a bit laggy on the 3G, however this summer looks good for iGaming.

    It's GTA developped by Gameloft for Rockstar.

    All I can say is, to echo frenchroast's sentiment, that the language in this teaser and the domain name is just so wrong.

    Coming on iPhone, eh? Does it include free screen wipes???

  • Dylan

    That topview thing you saw that's probably it
    Otherwise it's fake because that ain't gonna happen just not, maybe on a 360

    If the thing about the domain for the vid being tied to Gameloft is true, then it's most likely a new iTouch/Phone specific Gangstar.
