... now that it has been proved that a fully functional 3D GTA clone can work?

no idea what those other dudes are talking about...but I would say that in general yes, but GTA will probably be an exception, due to the brand name

umm lol what the hell are you guys talking about, hes not asking for suggestions hes asking if the top-down freeroam sandbox type game is done for on the idevice.

In my opinion, no, just look at Chinatown Wars, I thought that with the 3d ones coming out on the psp that the DS version was gonne be 3d (tps) too, but no it wasn't, but i still found it an enjoyable experience nontheless.
I believe that even though the device can handle it, that doesnt mean that everyones gonne do it, and i do believe that if Rockstar is seeing the success Gang$tar had, they will eventually make a sandbox game for the idevice, or port one over. (chinatown wars anyone?)
