Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Announced For PSP
When it came to the DS, PSP owners everywhere were glancing around going, "hey, what about us?" Well, don't worry; Rockstar didn't forget about you.
According to Videogamer, Rockstar has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is headed to Sony's handheld unit. It'll release for the PSP and PSP Go some time this fall, and it will be available in both UMD and digital format (as many upcoming titles will be). Following the portable GTA trend set by the likes of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, Chinatown Wars will boast "upscaled widescreen graphics, enhanced lighting and animation, plus all-new story missions." Said Rockstar founder Sam Houser:
"We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSPGo. Rockstar Leeds has shown incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced, and incredibly addictive entry into the series."
If you're not yet familiar with the story, you will step into the shoes of Huang Lee, a new member of the notorious Triads who travels to Liberty City in the hunt to discover his father's killer. It'll be just another game PSP owners will want to buy towards the end of this year, which means an upgrade to the PSP Go doesn't seem quite so silly. With all that software being made for both models, might you want to go lean and mean with the new UMD-less PSP?
