Alot of development time/money + abysmal sales trends= a no go unless it's a cheap port.

I think I agree. From my observations it appears that there's some sort of balance between game content and cost. For a GTA like game or any game with console like quality and content the developers would have to invest lots of money and time to make such a game. And there's no way to cover the cost in sales because a price point of $5-$10 won't cut it. Also, people want these games to cost $0.99 with promo codes...I think it would be a mess.

I would spend a whole gift card in one go for GTA, and I know a lot of people that would too.

It might be possible when they make a premium games section(if they do)

Beta tested: Parallelus, Galactic Gunner, Crazy Snowboard, IMO
