Gah, No Droid Incredible. I love being out-dated.

Oh well, I still have the PS2 version.

By "any type of smartphone", you mean only iPhones and some Android phones.

Any does not have the broad definition it once had I guess

Meh not going to get it.

I enjoyed the game on the PS2 but I dont think it's gameplay was riveting enough to put on a smart phone.

"For just about every mobile system under the sun"

The only reason you can justify that is because they're pretty much the only systems that people buy these days. I guess it pretty much boils down to your definition of "under the sun".

But anyways: For$5 you can count me in. Will be nice to have on the plane, train, bus etc.

A list of 18 models

Ahem. I think we're using different dictionaries.

More OT: Cool, I guess. But wouldn't playing this on a phone make the controls even more shitty? The original controls were already bad enough with a PS2 controller...

Even if I had a smartphone, I wouldn't want this. I have enough issues with people sticking their head in the way at the movie theater, why would I want a game where I have to stick my thumbs in the way in order to play? Anybody who thinks otherwise is a sucker, and PT Barnum would like to have a word with them.

That's not bothering Rockstar, since they think consoles are God's gift to them. Sometimes makes me wonder if they even play their own games.

Yeah, seriously. I could never get into the games, either the console or PC versions, because I could never find a control setup that wasn't so terrible I didn't get sick of playing after half an hour, whether it was with a controller or a keyboard and mouse. There's so much neat stuff in the games that's just so frustrating to actually access, and I don't even want to think about it with a touchscreen.

Cool now people can crash thier car and crash a car in a game at the same time :).

They probably do, and they probably have shitloads of fun with it.

Damn it I really wish I had an iPhone now >:( Or on that note maybe I should start off with getting a cellphone (stupid floors doing critical damage to cell phones)

Rockstar, Y U NO MAKE WINDOWS PHONE VERSION?

Nice, will be able to get it for my tablet. I want to see all those retro graphics full sized.

Is the Droid version the same price as iOS? How big will the download be?

No Xperia PLAY version? I would have thought that would be an obvious choice.

I want to see the ad campaign for it!
"Want to steal cars and murder hookers?! There's an app for that!"

Damnit. I have the iPhone 3GS. Oh well. I'll upgrade one day, when I can be bothered. Or just find the game for PC.

i wasted my last 6 apple dollars on "Bards Tail". i regeret nothing.
