    The devs description:

    '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.'


    Sounds like a text based MMO to me.
    Although I don't know ewhy they would make such a high quality trailer for a text based MMO.

    i havent read the rest of the comments, but you do understand that every single url available online also has the private option meaning that you do not need to disclose who owns the site etc etc...

    maybe think that "domains by proxy inc" is one of those services which provide free secret hosting?

    hmm...

    evidently the ip address points here:

    its not cartel...

    For all of you who still think this is the mmo 'The Cartel' heres something from the dev of cartel;
    'it's not the trailer for The Cartel. the official site that's coming is thecartelgame.com' - check for yourself http://twitter.com/bogdan_

    Personally I think its a gta style game from gameloft though the text on the website does look reminiscent of that of gta.

    For the love of...

    ...it's Gangstar people. Jeez. That's Gameloft's GTA-style game franchise. Available on older mobile platforms, the series has sold quite well for them, so they're bringing it over to the iTouch/Phone platform. It's not that difficult to "get".

    there is a couple of seconds where it shows the real gameplay, it it top-down but still has better graphics than CJS, not so cartoony. it's a waste of peoples time showing them full 3D animated scenes because that's not what they get.

    yep it is gangstar id say but the game could be upgraded quite a bit for the iphone. Just cos its the same name doesnt mean its the exact same.

    A perfect example is Gameloft's Castle of Magic.

    I'm looking forward to seeing how this turns out.

    Very well, but it's not going to be capable of graphics like the ones we saw in the movie part of the add, that just won't happen. I might not be qualififed to say that, but if you think they will get that good, please check again. HD consoles and computers have a fairly hard time producing those, there is absolutely no way to do that on a 3G S, but you're right, we need to wait and see :)

    Why does everyone keep this thread going? The trailer is a fake made by a fan website. Nice trick though. I'm sure the iphone is capable of a game like that, but we won't see it anytime soon

    What kind of thing is that to say? When the 360 was released, were the first games 16 bit?

    Never stated it would be the "exact same".

    What I stated is that it's Gameloft's GTA-style franchise, and that it has done well on other mobile platforms, so it's a no brainer that they'd plan on bringing the series over. Note that I stated "franchise" and "series", meaning IP (intellectual property). I never stated they'd just dump a port of the game over. They're bringing the IP over.

    I'm with Spiffyone here -- it's a trailer for the Gameloft GTA clone. As to the graphical quality on the video, how short is our collective memory, people?



    If history holds, the game will be a) graphically impressive, b) well-playing, c) somewhat short, and d) look nothing like that preview.

    Nice example :D. Alright, so this is what I think.... It may be word based, 2.5D graphics (as I predicted with Warpack: Grunts, if u assume it's 2.5D), Or a Payback/ Car Jack Streets mix, with a little more than just stick figures and moving circles for heads.
