Rockstar has been pretty cool lately about porting their games to mobile devices. The best part is that games like Grand Theft Auto III and Max Payne work just fine with touch screens. While the former is on both Android and iOS, the latter has only been available for iOS until now.
Rockstar Games announced today that the original Max Payne will be hitting select Android devices on Thursday, June 17. It’s been optimized for Android with HD graphics, hi-res textures, Social Club connectivity, customizable controls and gamepad support.
The game will cost $2.99 when it launches on Thursday. A game like Max Payne requires the power that’s not afforded by certain makes of devices so the game will only be available on select Android devices:
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
That’s a pretty wide-spread list of compatible devices. Glad to see that the dreaded Android fragmentation is only going to take a few casualties. Unfortunately, my phone is not listed which means that I will not be enjoying Max Payne Mobile. Good thing I still have the excellent PC version that was released back in 2001.
