Not only that, but TwitchTV’s app was also released to Amazon, allowing users of TwitchTV to stream content to their TV through FireTV.

In addition, fans of the Walking Dead will also be happy to hear that Season 2 (the game) has been released to the Amazon. By the looks of it, Amazon is really pushing FireTV, so more great titles should be on their way soon.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas carjacks its way into the Play Store

Now, with mobile gaming becoming very popular, one of the best-selling games of all-time is now available in the Play Store for Android devices. Even if you have never played a GTA game, you know what they are about. In this one, you play as CJ Johnson travelling across the California-like state of San Andreas in the early 1990s.

Validation issues force Rockstar to pull Grand Theft Auto: Vice City from Play Store

Rockstar Games announced it would bring the 10th anniversary edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to the Play Store on December 6th, and they did. Unfortunately due to some weird errors, they’ve had to pull it right after getting it up. There appears to be some validation issues with the application, and Rockstar is aware of them:

We’re aware that some users have attempted to download Vice City: 10th Anniversary Edition from the Google Play Store and have experienced validation errors.

Just to be clear: the game is not available for Android devices just yet, and if you’re seeing it listed on the Store then this is an error, and you shouldn’t attempt to download it. We’ll keep you up to date and let you know as soon as the game is live and available to purchase.

Not good news, but hopefully the issue gets resolved sooner rather than later.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City hits Google Play on December 6th for its 10th anniversary

 

Today Rockstar Games announced Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition will be coming to iOS and Android on December 6th, priced at $4.99. This is almost exactly a year after they released Grand Theft Auto III on the Play Store. The Anniversary Edition will keep all of the gameplay elements of the original, including native high-res graphics, but also adds a few things unique to the mobile version, such as updated character models and lighting and an improved aiming and targeting system.

Like last time around, Rockstar released a list of phones that will be capable of running GTA, as it’s definitely a bit more demanding that Angry Birds. The Nexus 4s and Note 2s will be fine, but be sure to hit the break below to find out if you’ll be able to get your hands on this game in December.

Max Payne Mobile For Android Coming June 14th

It’s official… Android’s gaming cred is now legit. Rockstar Games, fresh from their Grand Theft Auto III near-sweep of the TegraZone Player Choice Awards, announced yesterday that Max Payne Mobile for Android will be released in the Google Play Store for $2.99 on June 14th. That’s just a few days away! Of course, this is a bit later than originally announced.

According to Rockstar Games, the game is optimized for Android devices, featuring HD graphics, high resolution textures, gamepad support, customizable controls, and more. The one kink is that the game will be released for a specific list of devices, presumably those that performed well in testing. Whether other devices will be added with future updates, we’re not sure, but it’s a good bet since we don’t see the Samsung Galaxy S III on the current list, and I’m sure the pitchforks and torches will be out in full until it’s supported.

Here’s the current list of supported devices. Glad to see all of mine are listed :-)

Supported Android Phones: Motorola Razr,  Razr Maxx, Motorola Atrix, Motorola Photon, Motorola Droid Bionic, HTC Rezound, HTC One X,  HTC One S,  HTC Evo 3D, HTC Sensation, HTC Droid Incredible 2,  Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Note, Samsung S2, Samsung Galaxy R, Sony Xperia Play, Sony Xperia S, Sony Walkman Z Series Media Player

Supported Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, Dell Streak 7, LG Optimus Pad, Medion Lifetab, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 / 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P, Toshiba Thrive, HTC Flyer, HTC Jetstream

Thanks James!
