Take-Two 'Continuing To Develop' Nintendo Ties

Commenting on possibilities for Grand Theft Auto IV or other games in the series to make a move to Wii, CEO Ben Feder cited the upcoming Chinatown Wars for DS as "an important step" in developing a "relationship" with Nintendo.
Given that Take-Two and Rockstar's next step in expanding the Grand Theft Auto empire is a move onto Nintendo DS with the upcoming Chinatown Wars, what's the likelihood that GTA IV or another franchise installment might appear on the Wii? Speaking on Chinatown Wars during the company's third quarter call to investors, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder wouldn't rule it out, as he confirmed that the DS title is set to release in the first quarter of 2009 -- no later than February 1. The company's spent what Feder said is "an enormous amount of time and effort" with Nintendo building a "partnership" to bring GTA onto the DS, and he also feels the franchise has "significant value to add" to the platform. "It's not a one-way relationship in any way," Feder said. "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is not even the first step, but an important step, in continuing to develop that relationship." "Without commenting on whether GTA is coming to the Wii or not, Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together; Nintendo and Rockstar work well together, and we are continuing to grow that relationship."
