Rockstar announced a while back that they would be bringing GTA III to Android and iOS. The day has finally arrived and GTA III can now be downloaded on the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, as well as various Android powered devices. Not all Android devices are supported yet, including flagship phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus – support is coming soon though.
GTA III was originally released in 2001 by Rockstar on the Sony PlayStation 2 and to mark it’s tenth anniversary, it’s been made available for portable devices and actually works quite well. GTA III is one of the classic GTA games by Rockstar and is the first GTA game to go 3D.
We first saw Just Dance on the Nintendo Wii, which was subsequently followed by Just Dance 2, also a Nintendo Wii exclusive game. Just Dance 3 however changes all of that. For the first time ever, a Just Dance game is no longer a Wii exclusive.
Ubisoft have released Just Dance 3 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii. The Wii version again makes use of the Wii remote and Kinect and PS Move make it possible on the Xbox 360 and PlayStaion 3. We will be reviewing the Xbox 360 Kinect version of the game, which I’ve been playing for the past few days.
Ubisoft have announced that Just Dance 3 will be a sponsor of Katy Perry’s upcoming UK tour, California Dreams. To highlight the sponsorship, the “Just Dance Your Way to Katy Perry” competition has been launched. Four winners will receive VIP tickets as well as have the chance to meet Katy Perry. In order to enter, you need to video yourself dancing to Firework by Katy Perry on Just Dance 2. Firework is a downloadable track on Just Dance 2 which is free to download from the Just Dance Store – available from the main menu of the game. Alternatively if you don’t own a Nintendo Wii or the game, you can also enter by using the “Just Dance 2 Free Katy Perry DLC” clip on YouTube. For full details on how to enter and submit your video, head on over to the Just Dance Facebook page.
Sega have announced that Sonic Generations will have a special edition and collectors edition of the game. The standard version of the game will retail for £32.99 while the special addition is available for £37.99 on Xbox 360 and £39.99 on PS3.
With the special edition, you get an exclusive Sonic theme as well as Casino Night Pinball Stage. The 360 version will also include a Super Sonic costume for your avatar.

Most of the Sonic games have been re-released other the years on various platforms, as part of compilations or stand alone downloads. On the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, the original Sonic the hedgehog is available to download, as well as Sonic 2, Sonic 3 and Sonic and Knuckles and the 2011 Sonic game, Sonic the hedgehog 4: Episode 1. One game that always seems to be missed from these releases has been Sonic CD. For all those who have been waiting for Sega to release Sonic CD on the PS3 or Xbox 360, there’s good news. Sega have announced that they plan to convert the Mega CD classic for release on Xbox Live, PSN, iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, Windows Phone 7, Android and Windows PC Digital Download. At the moment, it doesn’t look like Sega will be bringing the game to the Wii.
