It's funny how the original PC developer says "It's not likely that you'll see our game on the iPhone because the platform couldn't sufficiently support our game.", then the small time developers make a PC game concept work on the iPhone like Warfare Inc. on iPhone (Starcraft PC) and Payback on iPhone (GTA on PC) then soon after the developer of the original jumps on board, "We're bringing our game to iPhone" Nature of the beast...

hmmmmm... interesting.

I'm not going to jump to any conclusions, but I could definitely see this happening, especially now that the app store "might" be getting the $19.99 section.

Car Jack Streets WILL release before GTA-Touch (?). GTA is Rockstar's most treasured franchise so there'll be little chance of it being rushed out anytime soon. If it is indeed and iPhone game, then I'd say expect a development time closer to NFSU if not longer.
