Following news of an iPad/iPhone 4S version of GTA III, Rockstar have sent over this video.
“The tale of a small-time criminal set loose in Liberty City,” says the blurb from Rockstar, “a sprawling metropolis where anything could happen, Grand Theft Auto III was the frontrunner of a new genre: the non-linear, ‘open world’ 3D game.”
“It also marked a turning point in the evolution of videogames into a bonafide entertainment phenomenon.”
Indeed it did, and the developer has released a special video to celebrate. There’s no real point, although we suspect Rockstar are judging response to the video (and news of the iPad version) to see if a HD remake is on the cards for consoles.
We’re in, if so.
