Grand Theft Auto III Coming to iOS, Fragmented Android Market

By  |  5 Comments

The good news is that Grand Theft Autio (GTA) III is coming to Android and iOS devices come December 15. The bad news is that the popular gaming franchise’s release on Android will be to a fragmented list of devices, both old and new. The release is curious as it’s unclear why some Android smartphones and tablets will be supported, while others won’t be supported.

From a quick glance of the list of supported devices, it appears that devices running Texas Instruments’ OMAP chipset are not supported, explaining why the Droid Bionic, Droid RAZR, and Atrix 2 are curiously missing from the list.

Here’s the list of devices that GTA III will support:

Apple iOS Devices: iPad 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation.
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x.
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive.

Come December 15, the game will sell for $5 for your casual smartphone and tablet game play.

    “Fragmented” is a poor choice of words. “Sparse” or “ridiculously small given the number of Tegra 2 and Snapdragon devices that are just about exactly the same” would be better as it looks like only certain Tegra 2 phones and certain Snapdragon phones, with weird exclusions.

    Why would even want to play this on a phone or tablet is beyond me. First person shooter type games are less than adequate on these devices at this point in time, I think.

      Are you fucking stupid? It’s not a First Person Shooter it’s a 3rd person open-world action/adventure shooter a first person shooter would be like call of duty.
