    GTA, as far as I am aware will never come out for the iPhone or iPod touch. It is known that Rockstar do not like Apple and on the GTA 4 game, there is a page on the internet in the TW@ cafe which takes the micky out of Apple and the phone. However, I hope they look at the potential money that could be made, not a relationship between companies- surely it's what the consumer wants?!

    Welcome to TA!

    Yeah, I don't think GTA will come out either. Payback is a similar game though on the iphone(similar to the first two -- the overhead view)

    Yep, welcome :D
    Also, if you enjoy the overhead view Car Jack Streets should arrive sometime soon. It looks pretty nice as well but I agree with your stance on GTA:mad:

    Maybe you mean DS? As far as I know they are only developing Chinatown Wars, which is for DS and the new xbox expansion, but this is getting off topic anyway.

    Rumors are circulating that GTA is coming to the Iphone. Most likely a port of Chinatown wars. Nothing has been confirmed by Rockstar yet, but the only handheld left that hasn't seen an iteration of the series is the iPhone. I think it's only a matter of time.

    iTouch/Phone is not a "handheld" in the sense that you are using (as a label for platforms in the portable game market). This platform is one in the mobile game market, which is a separate and distinct market (as PC and home video game consoles are also separate and distinct markets even though both are in homes).

    And, to the best of my knowledge, Rockstar and Take 2 as a whole do not really develop or publish games within the mobile gaming market, so chances are they won't do so for the iTouch/Phone platform. It's to their own folly, IMHO, as the mobile game market is one of the fastest growing sectors within the overall video game market, alongside the portable game market.

    Keep in mind that Rockstar is in business to make money. If they feel there is money to be made by bringing some form of GTA to the iPhone/iPod Touch, then rest assured they will develop for the platform.
