And people say Consoles aren't ruining the PC industry. On consoles, it's virtually impossible to mod games like the PC has allowed since the birth of it and now we have smartphones and tablets, with mods being allowed into games such as Grand Theft Auto III.

GTA III on the iOS, Android smartphones and tablets came out a few weeks ago and now there are users who have discovered that modding the port of the game on iOS and Android is just like modding the PC version, it just requires files to be added to the directory on the SD card.

What this allows is the usual custom cars, and a souped-up taxi like the video shows above. If someone is familiar with modding the PC version, modding the iOS and Android versions are no different, it even uses the same directory structure the PC install does: sdcard/android/data/com.rockstar.gta3/files/gta3/.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
