After a few untimely launch delays, Rockstar has now given Android owners a concrete date at which to find Max Payne on the Android platform. Starting June 14, you can find the shooter on the Play Store for just $2.99. Not bad. Once the game is released, we will be picking it up and letting you know our thoughts on this re-release of one of the better classic titles from my younger years. Have all the delays sort of made this launch a big letdown for anyone else? It sure has for me.
A tweet sent out from Rockstar Game’s official Twitter says that Android users have to be patient for a bit longer if waiting for the release of Max Payne to the Android OS. No say as to what has caused the delay, but we can assume they’ve stumbled upon some bugs and are applying some emergency fixes before release. I don’t mind the wait, as long as this game is flawless when it’s released.
Stoked for Max Payne?
Cheers K and B!
Get your guns cocked and ready to take down some dirty drug dealers, because Rockstar Games is bringing Max Payne to Android. Starting April 26, folks will be able to pick up the classic title on their Android devices through the Google Play Store. There is no list of supported Android devices yet, but here’s hoping it launches with no hiccups regarding device compatibility.
The full classic Max Payne PC experience, Max Payne Mobile has been optimized for both iOS and Android devices and features HD graphics, high-resolution textures, Social Club connectivity and user-customizable controls.
Rockstar is most likely making a trailer for it as we speak, which should hopefully give us a peak at how awesome this game will look on mobile. No word on pricing yet, so let’s just guess it will probably be around $4.99, much like Grand Theft Auto was. Anyone excited for the Payne?

Haven’t picked up Grand Theft Auto III for your mobile yet? Then do so now. Until December 29th, Rockstar has placed a $2.99 price tag on this epic piece of work. As an added “boo-yah”, Galaxy Nexus support has arrived for everyone waiting and praying. Go get it!
Fans of Grand Theft Auto, our day has come. Rockstar has officially launched Grand Theft Auto III to the Android Market. We were fortunate enough to get our hands on the game early and will say that it is one of the smoothest ports of an any console game to mobile we have ever played. It brings back plenty of memories of stealing cars, running from the cops, and building up a deadly arsenal for tearing down Liberty City.
The app runs $5 in the Android Market and that’s a “steal.” You won’t be disappointed in the quality or gameplay. Again, this is not a dumbed-down version of the game we played a decade ago. This is the actual game we all obsessed over and fell in love with. A note from Rockstar was added in the Market, saying that support for the Galaxy Nexus is right around the corner. (more…)
Ten years ago Rockstar Games released the controversial and revolutionary game, Grand Theft Auto III to an eager Playstation crowd. Since then, Rockstar has continued to rock the console and PC gaming industry, and now look to do the same in the mobile landscape. A special 10 year anniversary edition of GTA3 will be hitting select Android devices December 15 for $4.99. The following devices will be supported at launch:
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
I know what your thinking, no support for the Galaxy Nexus, DROID RAZR, or even the Bionic – crazy right? While the device list is surely lacking, a $4.99 price-tag for this game is more then pleasing. To bad it isn’t one of the $0.10 app specials. (more…)
In a press release this morning, Rockstar Games the company behind games like Red Dead: Redemption and Grand Theft Auto spoke about some details of their refresh of the bloody, dark noire Max Payne series. One of the interesting tidbits from the release said that that Rockstar was giving the original Max Payne a full mobile makeover.
While Rockstar didn’t come out and say that the game would be featured on Android as a platform they mentioned “taking advantage of the latest mobile technologies, including incredibly customizable controls and support for wired controllers.” The latest mobile technologies brings to mind the Kal-El processors that are right around the corner. And last that I heard, the i*ad is not really all about ‘customization.’
So this remains to be seen how it will play out. Max Payne 3 is set to drop around March of next year and it would be a safe assumption for Rockstar to launch this alongside the game for more marketing purposes. Any gamers in the audience that have played through Max Payne before? Plan on getting this on your phone or tablet when it comes around to the market?
