Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Coming To PSP

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the highest rated video game in the history of the DS, is coming to the Playstation Portable, Take-Two Interactive announced this morning.

"We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSPgo," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "Rockstar Leeds has shown incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced, and incredibly addictive entry into the series."

Despite record review scores, Chinatown Wars sold just 89,000 copies on the DS in it's first month on shelves, leading some to wonder if the DS was a good platform for mature gaming.

It will be interesting to see how Chinatown Wars sales compare on the PSP when it hits in North America and Europe this fall.

"Rockstar's work with the GTA series has been an enormous part of the success of PlayStation platforms," said Jack Tretton, President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment America. "We're excited to welcome the critically acclaimed Chinatown Wars to the outstanding line-up of great games headed to the PSP platform this fall."

The game will be available as both a digital download on the Playstation Network and on UMD.


    No more slowdowns will be awesome but not having to perform the task of giving a dude in the back of the ambulance CPR while driving for your life at the same time will be considerably less exciting :/

    I thought this would happen, with all the talk of the disappointing sales. sweet! I'm going to look forward to getting this, GTAIV for me just didn't blow me away like others, "gritty" and "realistic" storylines in the GTA universe just don't work.

    How sad. Poor quality graphics from a DS being displayed on such a powerful device like the PSP.
