    If you are a fan of the gritty sand-box style action game "Grand Theft Auto III" From Rockstar Games, and you have one of the following Android devices listed below, then you are in for a treat very soon. Rockstar Games is reportedly going to port their award-winning and highly successful game to a limited amount of Android devices. It's pretty amazing to think that one of the most advanced PS2 games is now playable from a device that fits in your pocket. That just gives us a bright vision of the future where we can experience holographic virtual environments projected onto our retinas.

    Okay, so that's probably still a ways off, but you can't blame me for being forward thinking. I will have no problem with being lost in a virtual "Elder Scrolls 10" on my "Samsung Galaxy Nexus Prime 12 SE" when I am in my 80's. xD

    Here's a list of compatible Android devices:
    • Droid X2
    • HTC Evo 2 (Probably the EVO 3D, or is it some unknown future device?)
    • LG Optimus 2X
    • Motorola Atrix
    • Samsung Galaxy S2
    • Acer Iconia
    • Asus Eee Pad
    • Motorola Xoom
    • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
    I must admit to being surprised by no love for the Bionic. It must have something to do with its graphics processor. What do you guys think?

    Thanks to Shadez and WozZy for the tip.

    I'm also surprised the Bionic isn't on there but I think it will get supported eventually.

    Well since the Bionic has the same GPU as the original Galaxy S I think that it getting GTA will be unlikely.

    When will the OEMs (outside of Apple) learn that the GPU is what really sets the device apart, not the processor.....
