GTA: Chinatown Wars PSP Dated for North America

August 27, 2009 Written by Draisey


Rockstar Games shocked the world when it announced that GTA: Chinatown Wars, previously announced and released as a Nintendo DS exclusive, would be making an appearance on the PlayStation Portable. The critically acclaimed title was also a sales disaster, pushing just 88,704 copies during its first month on U.S. shelves.

Thus it makes sense for Rockstar to recuperate their losses by porting the game to PSP. The question of course isn’t “how good is the game going to be”, but rather how the touch screen mini-games are going to translate onto the PSP (or if they’ll even be included). GTA: Chinatown Wars is scheduled to release on UMD and PlayStation Network on October 20th, 2009. We should have screenshots from the game shortly, as well as word of a UK release date.

As always, stay tuned on PlayStation LifeStyle for all your gaming updates!
