In the name of good deals, the PSP, DS and iPhone versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are on sale for 30% off, bringing it down to just $6.99.
The offer ends Sunday at 12am EST (the end of Valentine's Day). I'm sure your valentine will appreciate you getting this for them. The kick to the face is their way of saying "I love you."
Speaking to Game Culture, writer and director of "Gamer," Mark Neveldine, mentioned his involvement with a Grand Theft Auto movie, saying he was set to write a script and put in a marathon session to get familiar with the series. But thanks to a rights collision with Ron Howard's 1977 movie "Grand Theft Auto," and plot disagreement brought the project to a halt.
"There is a rights issue," he said. "You can't make it about the game. It got to be a headache and we said we would rather not get involved in it. I think someone ended up writing some version of it to re-make the movie, but that isn't our interest, ours was bringing a videogame to life."
So there is a god.
Ironic? Tampa Bay Online reports that a 30-year-old man suspected of stealing an SUV was apprehended by police in his home while he was playing Grand Theft Auto III.
Michael Ray Ekes of Haines City, Florida was arrested when the stolen vehicle was found in front of his home. When asked what he thought of GTA III, he replied, "It's a blast."
"Crime is not a game," said Sheriff Grady Judd. "Real-life crime has real-life consequences – and I hope he goes to prison for a good long while, where they don't have Grand Theft Auto video games."
