Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars HD hits iPad next week


In an effort to make sure it's playable on every portable platform known to man, Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars HD is coming to the iPad next week. It'll be available on September 9, and will cost $9.99 on the Apple App Store.

What makes it any different than Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars on the iPhone? Well, it's in "high definition." That's why it's called Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars HD, dummy. Otherwise, it sounds like it's the same game, with 50 missions, drug peddling, fast driving, and loud shootouts. Chinatown Wars on the iPhone wasn't the easiest thing to play with its touch controls, but go ahead and spend $10 to find out if it's any easier on the bigger iPad screen.

We reviewed Chinatown Wars when it came out on the Nintendo DS, which was a huge deal, and it was good. Because everyone was like, "Hey, the Nintendo DS is finally getting some love from Rockstar." Then Rockstar realized it needed to make some money and released it on everything ever to recoup some of its development costs.

What platform hasn't Chinatown Wars been release on that you'd like to see it make an appearance on?
