I feel like such a complete idiot i went telling all my friends who argued the iphone is not a true gaming system and i rubbed it in their faces i was soooo excited you don't even know. It was my most anticipated iphone game ever.

It was a hoax.
Not even sure how well the game would run on the iphone.

China Town wars is designed for a dual screen console so many things would have to be changed.

On the flipside China Town Wars had pretty poor overall sales against what was expected so perhaps Rockstar may see an iphone version as a way to make a bit more cash out of it.

While it would be a fun game to have on the phone ultimately i doubt it will ever happen due to the hoops that current devs have to jump through to get past apple's dubious certification labrynth.

Double post so sorry... but had to reply to the previous poster.

So why don't you show them Real Racing and Terminator Salvation.
Or Live Fire when it comes out.
How about Need for Speed? Sims3 and Zenonia.... all these titles and many more show that the iphone is a true gaming system.

I completely agree and have spent over 200$ in iphone gaming. Bue the fact that they would have a full on port of a GTA game which was scored so highly by critics would be undeniable. Sure we have assasins creed which was a DS port which was done spectacularl but still it was a good game not great. We need a port of a game like GTA:Chinatown wars with well implemented controls and their would just be no denying it and not only that i wanted that game whe i "heard" it was coming out more than any other iphone game so it sux.

If you define highly regarded by high sales your missing out on a lot of good games and that is a shame. You find me 2 sources that are credible that rated Chinatown wars lower than a 8.5 or the equivlent depending on the system they use. I feel bad for u if you only by mainstream games cuz ur missing out.

haha yeah I only buy mainstream games :rolleyes: if I was on a comp I would post some reviews that weren't that favorable. However the reviews have nothing to do with the term "flop". A flop is judged by sales just like a movie and just like this game. I don't think anyone will be impressed by a game that very few really know of on the iPhone. A better show off is a port of a game lots of people have played.

It got very good reviews. Most of them were 8/10 and up. It's just that the Nintendo DS/DS Lite/ DSi is mostly kids and teens who are looking for a casual and family-oriented game-market. Plus Nintendo games too. That's what Nintendo has been sticking with for the past few decades. It's going good for them so far.

If you don't have a ds, go get one SOLELY for this game.

Once again a flop is based on sales figures. It was a game that was supposed to make everyone love the ds and want to buy both the game and the device and it didn't succeed in doing that.

you state smugly "LOL Chinatown wars is not a highly regarded game" it was highly regarded you keep saying all you said was it flopped in sales that is a lie you said that it was not regared highly that is what i was adressing and you are wrong.

I think what he was saying was that it wasn't regarded highly in terms of sales, not playability or "fun-factor". He kept trying to tell people he's talking about it being a "flop", which is, exactly just about sales.

Anyways, like someone said, show 'em Need for Speed, Real Racing, or Sim 3. Better yet, show 'em Madden when it's out. That's gotta be famous enough.

or more likely.... too easy to pirate games on the DS.

I am CERTAIN that with a high profile game like GTA and the figures of how many people actually own a DS that way more than this number played it.

I don't even own a DS but managed to borrow one for long enough to play the game... which i bought and then gave to the person who lent me the DS as part of the deal.

Haha hey fan boy. It was a flop. If I took a survey asked people what their favorite ds game was most of them would say the new super mario bros or something eles besides GTA. Therefore the game you so dearly wish to defend was a flop and not too many people think highly of it. Making it not highly regarded. And I love how you can't admit it flopped considering rockstar has admitted that with the release of their disappointing sales figures. Remember when halo came our and everyone bought an xbox? That's what this was supposed to do for the ds and didnt. It floppd because people don't think enough of it to go out and buy a system and it like the game was "supposed" to do.

A game being highly regarded has nothing to do with sales. Their are tons of amazing games that just arnt played. I dare you to find me a bad review of GTA:chinatown wars you just can not. I never disagreed with the sales being bad. Madworld for the wii had bad sales guess that game sucked too. The conduit for the wii is likely to suffer the same fate does that mean that will not be highy regarded when the review scores are high. Do you even know what the term highly regarded means your making a fool of yourself. as a disclaminer i'm not a nintendo fanboy i ahve all three systems my 360 being played the most. Not my cup of tea but mirror edge sold badly and that was a highly regarded game in sales. Your ignorant GTA:Chinatown wars i don't think was even supposed to be a system seller to begin with. Nintendo does not even need a thirdparty game to make their system sells. Another game with incredible reviews was moon didnt sell shit. Guess it sucked according to you. It's a shame, true gamers do play games and judge games based on how good the game is not how well it sales. You will one day find a game that didnt sell shit that you absolutley loved and will defend it. Sales dont define a great game always just define it's fate.

Lol and you aren't.

Uhm yes it was? They made it to expand from their select casual gaming audience to a more hardcore gaming audience were the MarioKarts and Pokemon just aren't doing the job.

Not my cup of tea but mirror edge sold badly and that was a highly regarded game in sales.

Either im going brain dead or you're just contradicted yourself.

No one is saying the game sucks....

Nintendo does not even need a thirdparty game to make their system sells.

Apparently they do if they are branching out and asking developers to make games for the Wii too...
Oh and can you say Super Smash Bros Brawl ftw?


You my friend are overreacting, calm down and instead of posting hoohaw, make sense..

Your right no one is saying mad world sucks but what is being said is bad sales equal bad game. Some oen said apparently GTA is not highly regarded by many i challenge anyboyd on this site to find a negative review for GTA:Chinatown wars. Nintendo is trying to expand by getting third party devs on board but keep in mind they do not need a thirdparty game to sell consoles like state GTA was the goal.

Discussing gaming. Agreeing and Disagreeing. It may seem like i'm getting worked up and offended in my posts thats quite the opposite. I'm a gamer and love discussing games. This is awesome hearing why people agree and disagree with me this is great. So if my messages seem offensivei apoligize i'm a hardcore gamer espcecially iphone gamer and i am passionate for games lol. So join the discussion and tell me why i'm wrong or why you think i'm write. I respect all your opinions and ideas even if i disagree.

I meant to say no one is saying GTA:CTW sucks. Just because it is said it is not highly regarded doesn't mean it "sucks", games like Halo and CoD4 and even the SuperSmashBrothers series a couple years back were and some still are highly regarded games, but a game like GTA:CTW is definetly not highly regarded I mean that is pretty obvious since in its FIRST month sold 90,000 copies and games usually don't sell higher then they do in the first month so basically not even a noticeable percent of the world has the game.
GrandTheftAuto: ChinaTownWars is a good fun game for the DS, but it is not a highly regarded game. I dont even think you can call the DS a highly regarded system can you?

Think about it like this if I gave five people each about $250 I guarentee you none of them would go and buy a DS let alone Chinatown Wars. GTA:CTW =good game not "highly regarded".

"In the handheld space, with Nintendo platforms specifically whether it's Game Boy Advance or Nintendo DS the fact is that first month sales really don't matter," he explains. "You have a title like Mario Kart, in its first month, a holiday month that did just over 200,000 copies. New Super Mario Brothers, which launched in the summer, did over 150,000 in its first month. Those are not huge numbers, yet both of those have gone on to sell more than four million units apiece and to be in the top 10 total industry titles for the last two years running. So, first month doesn't matter in the handheld space as long as it's a high-quality game, which Chinatown Wars is, has some continuous level of marketing support whether its retail marketing, consumer marketing, online as long as you keep the buzz going it will continue to sell millions and millions. And that's my expectation for Chinatown Wars. As long as the team at Take Two and Rockstar give it a long life, it will do very well."

No, nobody really bought it.

Chinatown Wars now getting ported to the PSP and they are going to have a downloadable version of it for the PSPgo.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=218007

If we didnt have Apple, I think it would be better to port from the DS to the iPhone than the DS to PSP. Not only do they have to upgrade the graphics, but now they have to design the game around a thumbstick rather than touchscreen
