Yes! I knew this would be the next GTA to come to iOS! The first port worked great, and I hope this one will be 10 times better.

Lol @ anyone who thinks this port will be a6 exclusive.

It was a PS2 game people. Playstation 2. The requirements should be very similar to GTA 3, though I wouldn't be surprised if the iPad 1 and iPod 4 get cut out just due to the lack of RAM.

But A5 devices getting 25 fps? You joking? I suspect full effects will be present for A5 devices and up. A5X and A6X will be getting high res assets, with the A6X achieving a smooth 60 while the A5X will probably have a respectably stable framerate as well.

A5 devices will probably get similar framerates to the A5X, just without the higher res assets.

Not a complete surprise to see this announced, but I am very excited nonetheless. One of the best game soundtracks ever. GTA III last year was a great blast from the past and still ranks as one of the most enjoyable gaming experiences I've had on the iOS. Assuming a similar release schedule, we can probably expect this in mid-December, so I guess this gives me a deadline to finish Balder's Gate.

Next up will be GTA: San Andreas, though keep in mind that it was released in October 2004, not 2003, so we may have to wait a couple of years. It would not be a complete surprise if that game requires the A6 processor and by that point most people will have a device with at least an A6.

I'd say they've been working on this for quite a while already, so my guess is 4s and up, and ipad 3 and up.

It's a Playstation 2 game. No new hardware was required to play gta 3, vice city, or San Andreas. No reason why this should be significantly different. Cutting out the iPad 2 (which has identical hardware to the 4s) is a ludicrous idea.

I highly doubt that San Andreas will be significantly more hardware intensive than vice city.

Well GTA 3 wasn't officially compatible with the 3GS but still ran on it, so there might be hope. Honestly, I wouldn't get your hopes up though. Same amount of ram as the iPod 4 and iPad 1

It may not strictly be the processor, but it will need more RAM for example. GTA: San Andreas pushed the PS2 and Xbox much more than the previous two GTA games due to its shear size if anything. And two years of device releases may also influence system requirements.

i think same as gta3 itunes dresciption says 3gs not compatible but ran fine.

most games dont work on 3gs due lag Ram and not for the processor.

ARM CORTEX AB [3GS],A4,A5,A5x,A6 are same arquitecture armv7.

minium i think devices whit 512mb ram iphone 4 up.

The iPod 4 has more ram than the ps2, albeit DDR2 instead of VRAM. IMO any A5 device could run San Andreas just fine.

But if ram is the issue, why did you bring up processors?
