Just as expected, Grand Theft Auto III has arrived in the Android Market, offering some classic high-speed gameplay on your Android phone or tablet. Priced at $4.99 in the US and £3.23 in the UK, the 10 Year Anniversary version of the game runs at HD resolution and supports select USB controllers.

Those with a Galaxy Nexus may have to wait a little before they get their game on, however; Rockstar says the title is “coming soon” to the new handset. We’re guessing that’s an Ice Cream Sandwich compatibility issue. As for existing device support, the list is as follows:

Android Phones: HTC Rezound, LG Optimus 2x, Motorola Atrix 4G, Motorola Droid X2, Motorola Photon 4G, Samsung Galaxy R, T-Mobile G2x
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 and 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Toshiba Thrive

You can download Grand Theft Auto III here; it’s not a small game, though, weighing in at a hefty 18MB. Let us know whether it brings back good memories in the comments!

  • 18mb is ‘hefty’? lol wut?

    • It downloads a 300+ MB data pack to your SD/Internal Storage.

      It also doesn’t appear to work on the Nexus S 🙁

  • Working just fine on my non-supported Epic 4G Touch. Controls are awesome. Ahhhhh, such great memories.

    Won’t start on my norwegian Galaxy SII. I have downloaded the additional files, but after that it just goes to a black screen where it seems stuck. 

  • James

    Working on My Evo 3D which is supported 😀

  • Droid x2 supported? Not per Android Market. It IS supported for my old, non-tegra device – an LG Vortex. Huh? Makes no sense.
