Grand Theft Auto III For iOS & Android Launching Next Week!!

Apparently the rumours that were floating around a few months ago of GTA3 being released for iOS and Android were true.

You'll need a pretty high end device to get it running though, an iOS device with an A4 or A5 processor will do the trick. As for Android the list is a bit more complicated but it seems to be Qualcomm and Tegra 2 dual core chips that are capable of running the game.

Oddly, the Exynos SoC, arguably Android's most powerful CPU/GPU combination to date, isn't used by any of the devices that the game will officially run on. This is likely a driver issue as opposed to a power issue.

Anyone familiar with an app called Chainfire 3D, won't find the lack of Exynos chip based devices on the list a problem anyway ;).

I will be buying this for my future phone... even if it means avoiding the galaxy s2 and going for another phone :D

I'll make it work on my SGS2, I don't care what phones are officially supported ;).

Chainfire 3D ftw...

i hope you get a virus :p

I think Chainfire would be pretty offended of you went onto XDA and suggested his apps were virus ridden :p.

wouldn't be hard for a hacker to abuse the situation as you are well aware :p

All Chainfire 3D does is convince a phone that it's running a different graphics chip to the one that it really is. I've used it to play "Tegra Zone", games on my Mali 400 powered S2. It doesn't pose a security threat at all.

I'll still buy GTA off the market to make sure that's safe and then use the same Chainfire 3D apk that I've been using for months, no viruses for me ;).

And I can waste my life on GTA3...it's going to be brilliant :D, roll on San Andreas, the best game ever made, IMO.

san andreas is simply put the best game ever made and totally what GTA is about... none of that gta4 rubbish but bonkers gameplay.

Fighter jets, jetpacks, military bases and a plane graveyard, aeroplanes in general...all reasons SA was a better game. Even with the Ballad of Gay Tony expansion GTA4 was never as crazy and fun as SA...bloody hell, we're in agreement haha ;)!!

Plus... we got to burn an entire field of weed :D im not imagining it am i? when it burnt the player character got affected...

I don't remember burning a field of weed, though it's been years since I played the game haha :D. In GTA5 they should let you get high by choice, like you can get wasted and go drink driving in GTA4, I think going blunt cruising would be...interesting ;).
