GTA: Chinatown Wars to Hit the iPhone

On Monday, Rockstar Games, the developers behind the Grand Theft Auto series, announced that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars will be coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch this fall.

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is currently available on the Nintendo DS. It's coming to the Sony PlayStation Portable in October. Price for the iPhone version? Currently unknown, and of course the app will have to make it past the App Store's approval process.

While it's unclear if Rockstar has gotten pre-approval for the game, some of the content typically featured in a Grand Theft Auto game would seem to run up against Apple's policies against adult-themed material in the App Store. However, Rockstar told C|Net that they had no trouble with Apple's App Store policies and that the game will be made available as is.

Also on Monday, Rockstar announced that Beaterator, an app that allows users to create "world-class beats and songs," will also be made available for the iPhone. Like Chinatown Wars, Beaterater is slated for availability this fall; price is still unknown.
