I've been looking forward to this. I didn't have much of a problem with GTA3's controls - combat was a bit ropey but nothing game breaking and shooting hookers while taking a dump was always good value.

Wouldn't the Vita be ideal for this and GTA3?

Probably, but this is £3 and there are millions upon millions of iOS and Android users out there.

As opposed to the cost of development and marketing (we won't count distribution because it could be a download only title after all) for the Vita.

This is well worth the money. On the iPad at least. The graphics are brilliant and controls work well for me. Not worth playing on a phone due to the small screen though. A steal at £3. Hope they do a San Andreas port too in the future. That would rule! :D

I did wonder where it was, having checked the Play Store earlier to find it wasn't there! Hopefully it wont be too long a wait.

Well Android users couldn't even afford a working phone, so chances are lower that you'll make as much off them. Of course they're catering for iOS first.

What the f**k is this supposed to mean?

I think any half decent (and half the price of an iPhone 5) Android phone or tablet works a damn sight better than an iPhone. Don't buy their hype (that's what they are charging you for with their f**king silly mark up). The only thing Apple has going for it is a larger selection of (paid, always paid) apps and that list is growing shorter with every major release.

Mysterious crashes to desktop without any suggestion of what's happened? That's Apple. Battery you can't replace and Memory you can't upgrade? Welcome to Infinite Loop, see you again next year for the 64GB version of what you just bought.

Buy anything, tablet or phone, made by Samsung, HTC or Asus in the last 6 months to a year and you'll find it p**ses all over apple. Plus you have a working Maps app with public transport and places in the correct location rather than an embarrassed ad for Nokia Maps/Bing Maps/Anything that wasn't made by Google.
