I want you to take a mental journey with me. Dig deep into your memory banks -- all the way back to 2001. You there? Great. Think, if you will, about the the state of video games. The Playstation 2 was the hottest console on the market (okay, that's debatable) and Grand Theft Auto III was the game to have. Kids loved it as much as parents, teachers, and other authority figures hated it, due to its (then) graphic nature. Violence. Crime. Scantily clad hookers. That game had it all.

Fast forward to today. Wouldn't you love to relive all the GTA III action without having to blow the dust off your old PS2? Rockstar games wants you to --so they're porting it to Android (and iOS). There isn't a whole lot of information available just yet, but they're expecting a release "later this fall."

It won't be available for every device, either -- only a select few. Namely the Motorola Droid X2, Atrix, and Xoom; Samsung Galaxy S II and Galaxy Tab 10.1, "HTC EVO 2" (I assume they mean the EVO 3D), LG Optimus 2x, ASUS Eee Pad [Transformer], and Acer Iconia. This is a tentative list, of course, so expect more devices to be added as the project moves forward.

That's pretty much all the info we have right now, but we'll keep you posted as more details become available.
