It’s official, the company Rockstar Games has confirmed the launch date of  Grand Theft Auto III for Android platforms and IOS. However, the compatibility of the game has changed slightly since it will give priority to mobile devices embedded on Tegra architecture 2.

Being Gameholic, I have to write it and I think not only in this case, I am disappointed and very disappointed with this clarification, and sincerely hopes that the developers at Rockstar Games will also make their game compatible with other mobile devices to high range which are ‘large’ able to bear without worry.

Finally, in the vast majority that may especially refer to Samsung Galaxy S, S II and Note, LG Optimus 3D, Google Nexus S, HTC Desire HD and Z, and much of the range of Sony Ericsson and I probably forgetting others who are at the moment, set aside. This is especially unfortunate because of iOS: the iPad 1 and 2, iPhone 4 and 4S and the iPod Touch (4th generation) will be compatible.

First, here is the list of compatible smartphones and tablets:

  • Rezound HTC, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Samsung and Motorola Photon 4G Galaxy R
  • Iconia Acer, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony and Toshiba Tablet S Thrive

Apparently, the game will be optimized for NVIDIA Tegra 3 architectures, which will benefit from better graphics performance than the Tegra 2.

The game Grand Theft Auto III will be available from December 15 for the sum of  $ 4.99. Stay tuned for the download link.
