Rockstar’s released a bit of information on soundtrack for Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, which will “capture the spirit” of the franchise’s genres and stations over the years.
Original music for stations includes: Electro-Choc, IF99, Tuff Gong, The Beat and Radio Broker.

Good deal then. Game’s out March 20.

Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick said in the firm’s Q1 earnings call today that mature content on Nintendo platforms is something he’s going to do well. Go, Strauss.
“I do believe there is an opportunity for M-rated titles on Nintendo,on the DS and on the Wii,” he said. “I believe we’re the right company to be delivering that content.”
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is out March 20. Where’s GTA for Wii, then?

Never one to shy away from topical humor, Rockstar has put out a new Chinatown Wars promo poking fun at the recent bank bailout, saying that only “corporate criminals” get handouts.
The small commercial was made exclusively for GameStop. Watch through the jump.

Speaking to IGN, Denise Kaigler, Nintendo’s vice president of corporate affairs, has said the company sees zero threat in iPhone or PSP, because is applauds “any device that spurs interest in on-the-go gaming, because that helps expand a form of entertainment that has always been one of our core strengths”.
Kaigler went on to say that “consumers purchased 9.95 million hardware systems in the United States [last year], an all-time record for a portable system. On top of that they bought nearly 60 million games for Nintendo DS. Clearly people are still finding fun and interesting ways to spend their time with the system.”
With Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon coming in February, followed by Pokemon Platinum and GTA: Chinatown Wars in March and Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time coming this spring, Kaigler concluded:
“Nintendo DS and the upcoming Nintendo DSi will continue to stand out with games and experiences that just aren’t possible on any other system.”
Good for you, Denise.

New York Comic Con’s now well under way, and a bunch of big-name hands-ons got posted overnight. You may want to read them.
You are, therefore, in luck. Sorry, we’re just writing words for the sake of it.
Looks as though plenty of that’s been done already:

GTA: Chinatown Wars will be playable at New York’s Comic Con this weekend, according to this Kotaku story.
The DS game will be found at Rockstar’s booth, #1563.
We suspect this may be a popular exhibit, so if you’re going to bother trying to get close to it take a bat, or something.

According to this Gamespot report, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick said at the BMO Capital Market 2008 Interactive Entertainment Conference today that GTA: Chinatown Wars had been pushed back into the firm’s second fiscal quarter, running February to April next year.
No reason was given for moving the DS game back.
That’s not the best bit, though. From the piece:
Zelnick said the publisher was aiming to have [GTA IV's 360 DLC] available at the end of the fiscal first quarter (which runs November through January), although he noted it might move into the second quarter alongside Chinatown Wars. Regardless, the downloadable content is “close to completed.”
Microsoft’s probably popping the champagne right this very second.

“Anything using drug-dealing as entertainment is sending out the wrong message,” Darren Gold of charity Drugsline told the paper.
“Glamorisation doesn’t help our work trying to educate kids of the dangers of substance misuse.”
There’s more through there, should you feel the need.

GTA: Chinatown Wars is on DS because Wii wasn’t the way to go on Nintendo platforms, according to Dan Houser.
Speaking to Nintendo Power, the Rockstar boss answered the question of why he didn’t take the series to Wii before DS thus:
It didn’t feel natural to us, I guess. It really was that the DS felt like it had a lot of interesting challenges that would be totally different from what we’d done in the past. The stylus and the chance to use minigames in that way was really interesting and exciting to us, and we thought we could integrate seamlessly between those two modes. And it would be the chance to make something really good on a handheld with our handheld-focused team. That was really why we went that way. We haven’t really done any concrete, major thinking about the Wii, one way or another. They’re sort of separate issues.
Glad that’s cleared up. Thanks, NintendoEverything.
