Rockstar Games announced on Tuesday that Grand Theft Auto III: 10 Year Anniversary Edition will land on select Android and iOS devices on December 15th for $4.99. The company said the hit game will be available on:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad 1 & 2, iPhone 4 & 4S, iPod touch 4th Generation.
Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x.
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive.
Users appear to be a bit disappointed that Rockstar isn’t releasing the game to a larger selection of Android smartphones, given the huge number of powerful devices currently available. Worse still, Joystiq said the touchscreen controls weren’t very good on an early build — bit the game takes place in Liberty City, just like the original Grand Theft Auto III, and we’re looking forward to checking it out on December 15th.
