Ready your Android devices and clear your schedules, because Rockstar Games just announced the release date of GTA III: 10-year anniversary edition for select Android phones and tablets. According to the announcement, the game will only cost you $4.99, which is surprisingly cheap for a release of this caliber. Here's the list of devices to be supported at launch:

Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x

Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive

Now for some eye-candy.

Rockstar also mentioned to keep an eye out for a game trailer before the release next week.

I don't want to jump the gun here, but this game looks like it is going to be pretty incredible. That is, if you're into breaking the law in all sorts of ways... but who isn't?

    Dam so only Tegra phones....I can't imagine the install size of this...maybe in the 5gb range...to bad there is alot of shitty android phones with less than 4 gb internal....HTC is one..

    • Picazsoo

      Hmm - the original was on 2 cds. So I don't think you will get anywhere near 5GB. More like 0,5-1,5 GB?

      • Luis Nido

        The original game on two cd's? For what console was that? The PS2 and Xbox were one DVD each..... Well more than likely Rockstar ported the PSP version as the UMD's could only hold 1.8GB so that would sound reasonable. Gameloft's 9mm takes up about almost 2GB on my Sprint Epic Touch.......

    Thank you, Photon!

    NO HTC Sensation? Or Galaxy S2? Or Galaxy Nexus? Or DROID Razr? Seriously? All Tegra's. ChainFire 3D is it is then...
    Think I'll rip the APK from my Transformer and put it on my Sensation. I'll have bought it, so who cares?

  • Chris

    I'm gonna have to buy that, hopefully the G-Slate will be supported since the Optimus Pad is. How about some Amaze love???

  • blackroseMD1

    Supported or not, I bet this game will run great on the SGSII.

  • Pachi

    This is why the iphone and ipad are superior to android in every way...no f'king fragmentation...at the end the user gets screwed.

    • Derp

      Right, because paying $800 for proprietary garbage is better than competition in every way.

      • Pachi

        I am just pissed off cause my GS 2 is not supported...and who is paying 800 dollars? 99% pay subsidized price anyway.

        • Picazsoo

          google "ChainFire 3D"

    • Dan

      Not everyone cares about that. And just because a game isnt available to all devices at its release doesnt make apple devices better. There are also apps on the apple app store that are not compatible with older versions of the os, that is just the same as this. At the end of the day its a very small issue and i would still choose android all the way.

  • Brandon Lancaster

    I'm sure we'll see support for other devices after the game has been released. They'll obviously still be higher-end phones and tablets, though.

  • Rob

    What's the point of releasing a proper game if the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play, the one phone made for playing games, isn't supported? =/

    • Robbert

      Because the Play's hardware can't handle GTA 3 presumably. Why the SGSII isn't supported is a mystery though. 60% of my app sales come from SGSIIs! (it's for high end devices only)

      • Jon

        Chipset support. Tegra and PowerVR chips, from what I reckon. No Mali support.

      • adam

        That not true i think xperia play have good hardware it will be supported later on.

      • adam

        galaxy s 2 will get the update later on . Im glad that rockstar games release it, im just tired of gameloft bullshit.

  • PickleJuice

    Hope this supports my 32GB Galaxy Nexus :(

  • taylord

    Unless Nvidia has their hand in Rockstar's pantaloons I doubt it'll be a Tegra exclusive for long.

  • rusty

    chainfire 3d and sensations XE (dre) 1.5ghz dual core, i cant see it not working right?

  • Logan

    My Galaxy Note has about the same resolution as the PC I used to play GTA3 on back in the day...

  • olaf

    Where is Galaxy S2?? You know the smartphone of all smartphones? What a joke this is Rockstar. Major letdown :(

  • Edd

    Oh well, I'm sure this will end up on my SGS2 one way or another...!

  • beltet

    Hope they port it to xplay....
    problably not...

  • TRAZ

    guys dont rush in to conlusions , rezound as far as i know is in cpu and gpu terms identical to Sensation, The LG Optimus 2x inst tegra ,so that makes the only Tegra support argument invalid , sure it launces the game on limited number of devices for starters but i am sure more devices will follow , they want to make money not waste their time selling limited amount of copies.

  • adam

    sorry u guys im enjoying this game when it come out for my pure google g2x

  • adam

    TRAZ optimus 2x is tegra u moron the g2x is the same phone.
