iPad set to get all car-jacky with Chinatown Wars

I love my iPad, really I do. But I can only play so many different variations of a physics-based shooting game or a tilt-to-drive racing game until things start getting a little stale. It seems that Rockstar has heard my cries of anguish and is ready to bring some of their brand of love to the iPad by announcing that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars would be coming to the iDevice.

Already available on the PSP and DS, this version appears to be properly thought out and not just a quick and dirty port to cash in on the iPad’s popularity. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the iPad will feature updated high def graphics, over 50 missions — not including the side jobs — and will have a customizable radio station that will play the my own songs.

The chance to jack fools of their rides, set to the tune of Copacabana, will be mine on September 9 for $9.99 through the App Store.
