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!


  1. 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. 

  2. motorola defy-

    clicked on gta3, android market scanned my handset and a message said device compatable,so i purchased,downloaded,installed,installed additional software as asked,opened…music and graphics appear,i touch screen,next page appears with producers names etc,i touch screen again,everything stops, nothing…screen goes black and on some attempts to get it going has automatically restarted my phone…….apparently  “device compatable”?????????????

  3. I have just downloaded this game to my EVO 3D and it works great. I love it but it seems that i have told my friend about it with the exact same phone and he can not find it anywhere on the market.. was gta 3 removed? How come I can’t find it on my market anymore but i clearly have the game…?

  4. GTA 3 not compatible with samsung GT 10.1. It wont let me update files.keeps asking ‘ is the time on your device set correctly ‘ can anybody help ?????

  5. I am having difficulty installing gta3 on my Acer iconia a500. Every time I try to install error (403) pops up. Can anyone help?

  6. Works great on my Samsung Epic 4G (Galaxy S). Sometimes it’s slow and laggy, but that’s just cuz the phone isn’t that fast, but it’s more than playable! GTA forever!
