yes it is true. gta will come to xbox afterall...

here is an article from OXM:



A conference call with analysts last month indicated that the granddaddy of all console games may be heading, in improved form, to the X-Box. Take 2, the parent company of Rockstar Games, hosted an analyst Q&A where Take 2 CEO Jeffery Lapin revealed that, "We said tat there will be an X-Box SKU from Rockstar in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2004 (Nov. to Jan.), but we're not going to comment on what it is at this point." This was in response to an analyst's direct question regarding the existence of an X-Box version of Grand Theft Auto.

For those of you who keep animals out of your dank home at night, with a giant bonfire, we point out that Grand Theft Auto is not only the most compelling and violent freeform adventures ever conceived, but it's the game that single-handedly propelled the PS2 to its onceusassailable lead.

An X-Box version of the stunningly addictive crime-caper would look awful lot like the PC game. It's unlikely that Rockstar would too much to the graphics engine of GTA, but there are plenty of other options to consider.

The game relies heavily on brilliantly conceived radio station for atmosphere and music, and that would remain intact, but perhaps taking advantage of X-Box soundtracks to include a new radio station. Loading times, which approach nightmarish on PS2, would be vastly improved on X-Box almost automatically.

In short, even if Rockstar "phoned-in a conversation of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, or perhaps a combination of both, it would be a pretty compelling reason for even most jaded PS2 fan to pick up an X-Box. And current X-Box owners naturally wouldn't need telling twice.

When it's official, you'll here about it right here first. Hopefully we'll have an update next month, and a nice pink double breasted Armani suit.

GTA:VC Is one of the best games ever! It's fun, action packed, and you can blow stuff to smithereens! I like that truck with the big ramp, I just love to back up on the wrong side of the road and watch the cars fly over me!

Its not only being released on the xbox, but also the gamecube and the reason is sony had made rockstar/take2game sign a contract saying they can't make these games for their competitors. Earlier last month their contract with sony expired as sony never bothered to renew it. Making it finally legal for them to port the games to the xbox. and they have decided to put them all from gta 1-gta vice city. (source: gamespot and gaming world).
