Official: Grand Theft Auto coming to iPhone

Apple gadget embraces virtual underworld

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Gaming on the iPhone is about to get a lot more violent. Rockstar has confirmed that the Grand Theft Auto videogame series is coming to the handset.

Rockstar plans to release the Chinatown Wars version of the game on the iPhone - no great surprise as the edition has already been ported onto similarly small-screen consoles the PlayStation Portable and Nintendo DS.

Chinatown Wars will also be launched for the iPod Touch, Rockstar confirmed.

Sam Houser, Rockstar’s founder, described the title as an “incredibly ambitious version of Liberty City”.

Both the iPhone and iPod Touch versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be available this Autumn.

If you can't wait until then, a rather similar game, also available for the iPhone, has be announced online. A video of the title - called Gang$ter - appeared online earlier this year. ®
