Rockstar Games is bringing Max Payne with updated graphics to the mobile scene
Unfortunately, it’s anyone’s guess as to which mobile platform it’ll tie the knot with – since Rockstar Games didn’t disclose that information. Nevertheless, we’ll see the game that popularized “bullet time” get its share of enhanced HD graphical updates. And even though it can be a pain relying on a virtual gamepad of some sort, it’s being reported that it’s going to come with support for a wired controller of some sort. At the same time, it enables players to get their social networking thing on with Rockstar Games Social Club.
In all honestly, it wouldn’t surprise us to see this one available on both the iOS and Android platforms, but we can potentially expect to see it arrive sometime in March 2012. That’s because Max Payne 3 will be releasing at that time, which would make a perfect one-two punch for them to launch the original game on mobile.

The opening statement was kind of silly. Wahlberg is doing pretty well for himself; I mean, have you SEEN The Fighter?

Give the guy a break Sniggly. He probably was thinking of a catchy way to start this article. Why do you have to call him out on the obvious FAIL lol :P
I agree Wahlberg is very successful

Yeah, but you have to admit the guy always place a cop or military guy...in every film. The biggest reason he took The Happening is because he didn't have to play a cop for once.
But back to topic...this was one of my favorite games growing up. It's killing me what they are doing for Max Payne 3...but this will make it possible for me to look back. Almost makes me want to reinstall Windows to play some old school games...

Agreed, Walberg was incredible in The Fighter. Bale and Adams were incredible as well.

Marky Mark has been in a lot of great films and obviously is doing very well for himself, I think it wwas just a joke that the movie was horrible and sucked but then again all video game movies do.

Probably is "innapropriate" to apple, so it will go to Android now. Or be taken off of iOS app store after a few weeks

Yeah, just like Rage and Doom, oh wait. . .

If its like 95% or so of games that established video game companies bring to the mobile market, iOS and no Android version. Mark my words. For whatever reason, most game companies hate Android and haven't made any perceiveable efforts to support the platform despite its growing marketshare.

shouldnt take much to know my admiration of this game, just look at my user name..
But I just hope they don't butcher it putting it on iOS or even most Android phones, the xperia play being the exception. I just cant see how my favorite game of all time will play on a touch screen platform.. how are you to aim, shoot, jump, dodge bullets and use bullet time, take your shots of paynekiller, and scroll through weapons on a touch screen otherwise?
By mobile I hope they mean the PS Vita or 3DS or something
