Max Payne 3 Release Date Set, Mobile Version Promised

Dear Reader,

“Max Payne 3″ is finally getting a little clearer in front of us. After years of speculation and rumor, Rockstar announced today that the title will hit shelves in March 2012. Of course, the fact that they don’t set a specific day means this is dubious at best. Take it with a grain of salt, people.

Also, as if under their breath while coughing, Rockstar also announced that the original “Max Payne” will endure a port to “mobile devices.” I don’t know what that means or how that’s possible, but it strikes me as a bad idea. I’m sure an iPhone could handle the graphical output of the original MP, but playing it correctly requires too many inputs for a touch-screen to effectively handle. I have a feeling we’re not going to like what’s coming.
