Rockstar is currently celebrating Memorial Day with 80% off Grand Theft Auto III and 90% off Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars on iOS and Android. That brings both games down to a cool $0.99 - Max Payne is not on sale, but for $2.99, it's already a steal. So complete your Rockstar Games mobile collection over the weekend... if you haven't done so already, that is.

The mobile versions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars are current on sale for US$2.99, that's 70% off the usual US$9.99 price tag. A seriously worthwhile purchase for a full-fledged Grand Theft Auto game, however there's no word on how long the sale will last (over thanksgiving, we assume).

With Max Payne and Grand Theft Auto III making their way to mobile devices in the coming months, perhaps there's no better time than now to start accumulating your mobile Rockstar Games collection?

SystemLink has found an interesting resume entry of a former Rockstar Leeds employee. In it he describes working on Chinatown Was and another unannounced title for the Nintendo DS. This unannounced title features a "full 3D open world" with a "complex hand to hand combat system". As he left the studio in 2010, it's unknown if the title is still in development or not. He mentions that he performed work on the PS3 version of L.A. Noire shortly before leaving so it may have been put on the back-burner so Leeds could focus on the PS3 and PC versions of L.A. Noire.  With the not so stellar sales of the DS version of Chinatown Wars and M rated games on the platform in general, it's hard to see why Rockstar would still be committed to the platform especially when they made a killing on the PlayStation Portable with the GTA Stories games. However, Sony did announce that Rockstar was developing games for the PlayStation Vita, the successor to the PlayStation Portable. Rockstar could very well be planning on either a cross platform launch of this unannounced title or have just simply transferred the game entirely to the PS Vita.

Back in June, Ben Feder let it slip that Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars was coming to the iPad later that month. However, there was no release or even an announcement. Today, Rockstar has officially announced the iPad version of Chinatown Wars. The iPad version will feature everything in the iPhone/iTouch version plus high definition graphics. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem Social Club support will make it into this version either as there is no mention of it. Chinatown Wars HD will be out September 9th for $9.99.

A free, denoted as "lite", version of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the iPhone and iPod touch has quietly appeared in the iTunes App Store. It seems to have been released several weeks back, but we've only just discovered it ourselves. The lite version allows you to play the first three missions from the full game, and is around 100 megabytes smaller than the full version download wise.

Five new screenshots have been placed with it in the App Store as well, you can find them below:

Rockstar has updated Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars for the iPhone/iTouch OS to version 1.1.0. This update adds in the 6 radio stations (featuring over 100 minutes of music) that were previously PlayStation Portable version exclusives as well as various bug fixes.

Published at 11:08 PM PST

Update 1.0.1 Available

It hasn't taken Rockstar long to fix some of those bugs in the iPhone and iPod touch versions of Chinatown Wars. Today they released version 1.0.1 which fixes numourous post-release bugs and also changes Independence FM to read songs from your playlist randomly, rather then by their position in the list as it was with the previous version. The following is a excerpt from the iTunes App Store page:

What's New in Version 1.0.1

Thank you for your support! In an effort to enhance this product, we are constantly reading your comments. Independence FM (Custom Playlist) now plays selections from your playlist randomly. This patch also features a selection of bug fixes we have discovered post release.

There have been a lot of comments on the bugs in the original version, and many people found the way Independence FM played songs by position to be rather annoying, so it's good to see Rockstar responding to these comments and making the necessary changes. Check for your update when you have the next chance, or if you don't already have the game be sure to purchase it by following the below links.

Rockstar has posted another entree in it's Asked & Answered series where they answer questions from the fans. Here are some snippets from the post.

“Now where the hell is Red Dead Redemption's info? The Movember winner, Gamestop pre-order outfits, 2nd gameplay series. Where the hell are they?”batik89

Ha - love the enthusiasm!  All of the above will be revealed in the next week or two, we promise.  Look for the 2nd clip in the gameplay series (which will be an in-depth look at shooting - all the gunplay, weapons, dead-eye, natural motion physics and so on that make up this key aspect of the game) as well as a big hands-on preview round to hit towards the end of next week.  Meantime, there’ll be continuing Red Dead goodness posted right here in the coming days.  Keep your eyes peeled..

“Your latest word on L.A. Noire is that it is coming along "splendidly" and that we can expect more details very soon, but that was in September. I've been anticipating this game for ages now and I was wondering if you can provide any new information or when in fact you'll publicly provide more information. By the way, is it still on the PS3?”received via Mouthoff

There will be something great to see soon - a proper in-depth look at the game and why it is so ground breaking and innovative, both in terms of the game's design and the amazing new technology to support it.  Expect to see a long-awaited reveal via a big cover story next month.

“Can you DM me cheats for GTA Chinatown for the iPhone?”received via Twitter

We know a lot of you out there are rooting around the web in vain looking for those Chinatown Wars iPhone cheats.  So, by popular demand, we'll post a first batch of them right here, tomorrow.

Also asked was when Chinatown Wars is going to make it's way to other territories. Rockstar is sorting out some legal issues and they hope to have Chinatown Wars available worldwide soon.
