Grand Theft Auto debuted on Android and iOS last week for $4.99 but out of the box was not compatible with the new Galaxy Nexus.

To mark its successful launch and ring in the holiday season with some violence and car chases, Rockstar Games has discounted both the Android and iOS versions to $2.99 and fixed that pesky device incompatibility.

If you have just purchased your shiny new Galaxy Nexus and are looking for something with which to wile away the hours on your days off, head over to the Android Marketplace or App Store and give GTA 3 a try. The discount is running until December 29th.

    They are punishing the early adopters of the game. If I bought a game at full price i’d be pissed

    Gotta say, I am kind of disappointed that I paid full price and wasn’t able to play it until the other day on my Galaxy SII because it continuously crashed at the first sign of movement. Now they’re saying “everyone who waited.. have a discount. All you other suckers? Too bad”. I’m not usually one to complain about this stuff but that’s pretty annoying.

    I bought it for My Sensation, and played a week, although I never could quite grasp driving. Today I upgraded with an XDA Ice Cream Sandwich mod. Love it… but sadly the game is now gone from my market. Oh well.

    It happens. I bought Portal 2 off Steam for $30 and a week later it was on sale for $15. Luck of the draw.

    It’s $2.00 difference, that’s a cup of coffee, quit complaining.

    Awesome. I did purchase it for my Galaxy Nexus at the $4.99 price and noticed it crashed , but was able to get it refunded during the refund time frame. I guess I’ll give it another try for $2.99. :)

    Wait, I just bought this on my g2x but I can’t dl and play it yet. Are you telling me it’s not going to work?

    POS game; works first time you try it, but won’t there on afterwards – have to reinstall.

    R* are well known for pulling this kind of behaviour, think yourself lucky it’s only a couple bucks…

    I bought each DLC for gta4 as soon as it was released, and my reward for supporting the game? no bonus radio station that was supplied in the episodes from liberty city multi-pack that came out later, for less than the cost of both DLCs.

    money is one thing, i’m not gonna miss two bucks, but losing out on content… SUCKS.
