Apple really needs to make bluetooth controllers work with iDevices, only then would I have an interest in iGaming beyond the 99cent time wasters.

I can't stand touch controls for games not designed for touch controls.

Seriously, make a controller that allows the phone to clip in on top or in the middle.

Aye looks good but this kind of game need's controls. You can see from the video how fiddly it is to control.

ipad/smartphones will never be the future of gaming although if it's decent price i'll buy it. One thing apps does well and that is price.

I sometimes play Android emulation games with a PS3 controller using bluetooth connection. Certainly shows potential when you can free up the screen. Although not very practical out on the go! :)

Just bought gta III on the iPhone 3GS and have to say im very impressed! I have no complaints, as for the touch controls I find them good but wouldn't mind a bluetooth device or attachment for games like these :D

Wouldn't mind trying a demo of it first to see if the controls are good.
EA Sports: It's in the game(for a price).

For those asking about gamepads for iPhones and their like.

AFAIK there's no official Apple gamepad and I've not read about them making one either.

I have one, they are very good. Convinced me to buy an Xperia Play so I haven't used it in many months.

Awesome! Wouldn't even of Googled it if I didn't see this, cheers! :) Downloading it now. It only cost £2.99. Reviews seem to suggest it runs okay on the Xperia Play. Let's hope so!

I still have all the GTA games on the PS2, still great games. But couldn't get into them on the PSP, so I've no interest in playing them on mobiles etc., but GTA games are not really suited for handheld devices. GTA 3 is the best in the series, a big step up from the ones before it. Didn't think much of GTA 4, so I hope GTA 5 is better. Got a feeling Rockstar will at some point release a collection up to say San Andreas, but can't see it including the Stories series. China Wars is totally cack, more so on the DS, which is Rockstars biggest cock up of all time.

The video I watched on youtube seemed kinda choppy but hey, its worth a punt for the money. Update this with your findings please. I just don't have the space right now.

Look at the reviews though, idiots rating it 1 star for not working on the Wildfire. Any wonder developers avoid Android :oops:
