Rockstar Games unleashed the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto III onto the Android Market just over a month ago, and we thought it was awesome. Unfortunately, the game was only available for a few devices upon its release, but it has since added support for many more.

If you own a Transformer Prime, you'll be glad to know that the game's latest update puts your device on the "approved" list. In addition, the update brings SD card support, which is huge considering the game file is rather large.
