June 22, 2009 // 6:06 pm - The PSP's Indian summer continues, with Rockstar announcing that it's bringing GTA: Chinatown Wars to the handheld later this year.

GTA: Chinatown Wars was a critical hit when it came to the DS in March, with Rockstar's open-world formula translating beautifully to the demands of portable gaming.

The PSP version will utilise the system's more powerful architecture, featuring revised widescreen visuals as well as enhanced animations and more story missions.

To quote: "We're proud to extend this truly unique handheld Grand Theft Auto experience to PSP and offer a downloadable version of Chinatown Wars for PSPgo," said Rockstar's Sam Houser, "Rockstar Leeds has shown incredible talent in creating games that raise the bar in terms of depth and innovation on portables, and with Chinatown Wars we have a rich, fast-paced, and incredibly addictive entry into the series."

Sony's Jack Tretton seemed suitably pleased with the news, saying, "Rockstar's work with the GTA series has been an enormous part of the success of PlayStation platforms. We're excited to welcome the critically acclaimed Chinatown Wars to the outstanding line-up of great games headed to the PSP platform this fall."

Chinatown Wars will be the third GTA game to grace the PSP, although it will be the first to utilise a top-down view on the open-world series.

Thats really sweet, thought I was going to have to get a DS to play that one. The only thing about it being made for the PSP is I'm not sure if bringing it over will kill some of the gameplay modes as the controls were designed for a second screen with some stylus/touch abilities. We'll see tho. Never played it yet to see what it holds, heard it got good ratings. Hope they can convey it all, I'm sure it will still be good.
