That's what I'm thinking, though I doubt it... If it was, I would buy myself another PSP just to play it. The DS GTA never interested me from looking at it.

The funny thing with this game is that it's 17.99 (UMD) in Tesco and 29.99 (Digital) on the PlayStation Store. PSPgo users endup paying more, for something that doesn't look all that great (crappy DS port), which is why I'm avoiding it on eBay even (where it's 4 at the most).
