Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is now available in North America for PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. Developed by the award-winning studio Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is the highest-rated, critically acclaimed portable title of this generation, and is now at retail stores on UMD® and available digitally from the PlayStation Network. The game will also be released in Europe for both formats on October 23, 2009.

"Chinatown Wars represents our desire to continue innovating and delivering an unparalleled level of entertainment for portable games,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The team at Rockstar Leeds has taken one of their most acclaimed titles of all time and built upon that experience in a way that could only be done on the PSP system.”

In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, protagonist Huang Lee arrives in Liberty City to navigate through a gang and drug-infested criminal underworld in search of the man who murdered his father. Featuring additional missions, music, and graphical enhancements that support this bold and unique stylistic departure for the series on PSP system, players will experience a newly optimized control setup that never takes them out of the action.

Already receiving stellar reviews from critics, Play Magazine awarded the game a 10 out of 10 and said, “…here’s your chance to play the definitive version of not just the year’s best portable offering, but one of the year’s most engaging titles offered on any platform. It’s a living, breathing Liberty City in the palm of your hand.”

VideoGamer.com also awarded the game a perfect score, saying: “…there’s no doubt in my mind. GTA: Chinatown Wars is my favourite handheld game of all time. It’s funny, it’s full of great ideas, and above all else it’s wickedly fun.”

GamePro also called it “…an absolute blast from start to finish…”.

Eurogamer said, “Between the clever mission design, comedy storyline and imaginative drug-dealing angle, it represents many hours of play, all of which live up to its legacy.”

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is rated M for Mature by the ESRB and will also be available on the iPhone™ and iPod® touch at a later date. For more information, log onto www.rockstargames.com/chinatownwars.
