It’s almost mind blowing that the DS version of GTA could hold 2 hours of cut scenes but apparently so, according to the BBFC.
Note that since February 2001 the BBFC has measured each component separately, but older works may not have the exact details, only a list of titles.
n/a GRAND THEFT AUTO: CHINATOWN WARS
02:00:00:00 SUPPLEMENTARY CUTSCENES (APPROX)
00:48:00:00 SUPPLEMENTARY GAMEPLAY FOOTAGE (APPROX)
A film or video, together with associated trailers may exist in several versions and all versions known to the BBFC are listed below.
No doubt the cut scenes are mostly in game rendered but it still makes for a pretty damn big game scope, also listed on the BBFC listing is the ’48 minutes of Supplementary Gameplay footage’… which could be anything although although presuming it’s cutscene related it does push up the running time to an impressive 168 minutes.
GTA: Chinatown Wars is being developed by Rockstar Leeds / Rockstar North and will be exclusive to the Nintendo DS, it’s currently planned for a March 17, 2009 release.
