GTA 3 Android

Today is the day when some of us will realize just how old we are. Grand Theft Auto 3 has been released for iOS and Android more than 10 years after first debuting on the PlayStation 2. It’s being sold for $4.99, which isn’t too bad considering how much some of these other console ports are selling for. Be warned though, GTA 3 is nearly 500MBs in size. For some of you playing on Android, the download may take longer than the 15 minute window you have to get a refund in case it doesn’t work.

According to Rockstar, GTA 3 is only compatible with a select number of devices. We’ve posted them below.


  • iPad 1&2
  • iPhone 4 & 4S
  • iPod Touch 4th generation

Android Smartphones

  • 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
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1
  • Sony Tablet S
  • Toshiba Thrive

This is where things get tricky. On the Android Market website, it shows GTA 3 is compatible with all the Android devices registered to my account. This includes the very old myTouch 3G from over two years ago. There is no way GTA 3 will run reasonably well on that phone. This is something you should be aware of before dropping the $5.
