Replay Value: Saturday, January 23

    This week was dominated by the presence of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. From its sneaky App Store appearance to our review a few days later, and then the news of GTA:CW’s subsequent dominance of the App Store, this was Rockstar’s week. But that’s not all that happened, and we’ve got dozens of stories worth reading up on.

    Just don’t tire yourself out, because next week is going to be positively insane. Will we see the iSlate, iPhone OS 4.0, and iLife 2010? We’re expecting it all at next week’s Apple press conference, along with a few surprises, and we’ll be reporting on all the gaming implications of their announcements.
