In the summertime of 2008 the annual E3 games show was held. This show proved to be among the least interesting in years. No new consoles were announced nor were any major new games announced from the popular franchises.
Particularly Nintendo’s presentation lacked anything to produce gamers excited. Their finest effort came with Wii Music, that has since been released with poor sales and unfavourable reviews. The only item that basically caused excitement was the brief but fairly shocking announcement that GTA: Chinatown Wars could be released on the DS.
The announcement really came as a surprise since GTA is best noted for its adult content while the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo DSi console are noted for their family friendly games.
Fans of the series feared that GTA: Chinatown Wars DS would have its content toned down to fit in better with the type of game typically on the console. gta 5 za darmo GTA developers Rockstar have stated that they’d not be comfortable carrying this out and that Nintendo never asked them to tone the content down. Toning the content right down to anything that will make the overall game suited to a good 12+ age rating would leave very little content in GTA: Chinatown Wars.
Themes contained in the series include, drugs use and dealing, murder (in some cases only for fun) and prostitution. The majority are surprised that Nintendo are allowing such content to be released on the console, but a lot more games players are pleased to finally see some mature content on the portable console.
The newest Grand Theft Auto game will certainly gain a high level of sales after the success of the Xbox 360 and PS3 editions of the series. Whether or not GTA: Chinatown Wars DS marks the start of an even more open-minded view from Nintendo on adult games or whether could it be is a one off remains to be seen.
