Rockstar Games put up a new page
It looks like the pc version of any grand theft auto, has once again been put on the back burner. It looks like we just might not ever see grand theft auto come to the personal computer ever again.
A fourth game to come to a portable gaming system, is the third portable game to be created and not be ported to pc since GTA San Andreas. It is so far the fifth game to have been created to not be made for pc gaming.
As of now the games to not be moved to pc are as listed. This includes portable and full blown console games.
1. gta advanced
2. Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories
3. Grand Theft Auto Vice City Stories
4. Grand Theft Auto GTAIV
5. Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars
I am assuming they are going to use the china town section of liberty city from GtaIII and Liberty City Stories. If this happens, can we see a port coming to Nintendo Wii? can we see a few Gta Rockstar grand theft auto games coming to the Nintendo Wii soon? I think we can.
The simple facts are as of now.
Nintendo ds game coming in December
it is called Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars.
No News of pc GTAIV
No news of any psp releases yet
of anything new.
Here, Grand Theft Auto Five Speculations and Rumors

We all want to know ” Will Grand Theft Auto IV come to the computer?”
Let’s look at the odds by looking at the past games that have come out.
Grand Theft Auto and GTA2 came out on PC before they came out on console. GTAIII changed the pattern with it’s release for the Sony Playstation. Grand Theft Auto 3 and the Rockstar and take two families allowed the console gamers to get first crack at the world of Liberty City. The game makers just dropped them into a world of free roam with nothing but their thumbs mashing the controls, doing things that people used to do with all ten fingers. Right away, issues became noticed. The problems where stuff like the A.I. would lose control or just get stuck on simple obstacles they could have just walked around. Users also noticed what is called “pop-ins.” A ‘pop-in’ is when you are moving through this world, then suddenly a bush or a bridge just appears from nowhere, “bam, now it’s just right there” and it was not there a second ago. So Rockstar games amazed everyone with the announcement of GTAIII for the PC. The PC version had a better draw distance and I.A. was tweaked. The question is, did they make a PC version just to shut people up and make more sells?
Grand Theft Auto Vice city came out for the PS2 before it came out for the computer game players. There wasn’t any announcement of a PC version until two months before it’s release. Again, the game was tweaked and looked better on the PC. In my opinion, Vice City was a duller game than GTAIII since Rockstar stripped so much out of the GTAIII engine that it removed most of the ambiance. The items removed where all atmosphere and did bog down consoles and video cards. Nowadays, computers and consoles are finally strong enough to handle that much stress. Again, I ask “Did they make the PC version just to sell more of the same game, even to repeated customers?”
San Andreas, they never even told us it would come out for the computer. While working on San Andreas to be released for the computer (nearly a year after the console version), Rockstar games was also working on Liberty City Stories.
Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories where first announced to be created exclusively for a portable gaming console called “playstation portable,” aka PSP. Six months after both were released, news was announced both would be released for the Playstation2. Neither one have yet to be released for the PC.
So far, there is no announcement of a Grand Theft Auto IV coming out for the personal computer. This next game is now set back to be released on April 29th of this year. If things would have been on schedule (agreements with console makers, etc.), the once again revisit to Liberty City would have been on time, and we would have already heard the news about a computer version. Since the console version was delayed, could it be that the PC version’s news was also delayed, or pushed to be released one year from the original release date of the console version?
Since we have not received a PC version of Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories, nor any news of GTAIV on anything but Xbox360 and Playstation3, I can only expect that Rockstar games would much rather put the “Stories” games and San Andreas out for the Wii console. Long before we will ever see a PC version of any, especially the newest.
