Just a few minutes ago some in game video of the forth coming Grand Theft Auto China Town Wars PSP were posted for all to see and that got me salivating for some Grand Theft Auto on other systems that I own. The only platform completely untouched by the franchise thus far is the Nintendo Wii. With a noticeable shift towards the hardcore and mature gamers with titles like Dead Space Extraction and Resident Evil The Dark Side Chronicles it stands to reason that Take-Two isn't going to want to miss out on the Wiimote shaking action. A recent quote by Take-Two CEO Ben Feder lends some weight to the argument.

“We’ve spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo. We’re very proud of the partnership,” he noted. “GTA: Chinatown Wars is an important step [in that partnership]…and we intend to continue to grow that relationship.”

A previous quote by a Take-Two rep. went something like:

“[but] I think there are other titles better suited for the [Wii] than Grand Theft Auto 4.”

So it stands to reason that, given the success of China Town Wars, we won't be seeing the current full fledged Grand Theft Auto on the Wii any time soon. What we will most likely see is either another port of China Town Wars or another Grand Theft Auto spin off based on the series. The latter being the most likely as we've seen them do with previous PSP Grand Theft Auto games.

I know almost nothing about the PSP port of Wars, makes me wonder what they are gonna change.
What a coincidence, I was just playing Smash and Grab mode on Swat 4 lol.
near as i could tell it appeared to be virtually identical on the grqaphics side. obviously something has to change in the control scheme and if things like mapping was happening under the stylus. having to change that much means they have to spend some time on the port which gives me high hopes that its good.
I have the DS version, well my brother does, too bad it only has one save slot.
Hopefully that will be one of the good changes. The PSP's save system has always supported multiple saves.
Actually, they're not really changing much of anything for the PSP version, other than how you do certain things without a stylus. It's just a port of the DS game as an attempt to make more money.
I have no NDS so...I'll take what I can get.
