In yet another suprise announcement from Rockstar, Vice City Stories is after all a real game, it was confirmed by Take-Two in a press release earlier this afternoon.

New York, NY - May 10, 2006 - Rockstar Games, the universally-renowned publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), is proud to announce Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. Developed by Rockstar Leeds in conjunction with series creators Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories will be available exclusively on the PSP system in North America on October 17th, 2006 and Europe on October 20th, 2006.

I've uploaded the GTAVCS logo for your viewing pleasure, click the thumbnail for the full image.
So later this year we will have a new (sort of) GTA game to play. I've made "VCS" section for The GTA Place, it will be themed as soon as we have some artwork and images. The pages we have already are the general information, artwork, and fan created art, so please send us your work if you've already made something, the best will appear on the page. It will be interesting to see what they change in Vice City this time, possibly a new time era too?

Shocked or suprised by this announcement? Discuss it in the forums.

I thought that R* will release VCS. Now it's just been confirmed. No suprise for me, really, and I'm not interested in it because I haven't got a PSP. :zZZ:

We don't know.
Since the game comes out in just 5 months I would expect info pretty soon though.

Hi, this new has just made my day. I think it could be based on present day, something like vice city, 20 years later; although i won´t deny i would love to see it based on the 70's.
Thanks for the information :coolthumbup:

Hm, I don't know about it...5 months is just too short to make a good game.

No it doesn't mean they've just started work on it. I bet they've been working on it ever since they finished making LCS, they just haven't announced it until now.

You're excited about VICE CITY for PSP, but not a HUGE BRAND NEW GTA?

.........

We know NOTHING but what has been posted. That being, the name and release.

Hm, I don't know about it...5 months is just too short to make a good game.


I'm not even going to question why you would possibly think they just started making it. -.-

I doubt 1.5 will be able to play it... You'll have to wait a bit.

There is no "freedom of speech" in forums, yes you can say what you want but in the end what the mods say gos. This is not a democracy.

Nah, with the update of 2.7 I think Rockstar got a bit of a Bo*l*k*n, TBH I reckon that 3.0 will be out by then anyways because of the eyetoy and GPS, wonder whether any accessories for the psp will have any functions within GTA??

:D well i had a look at a chart by SCEE and it shows two more updates coming before 2007 i saw one coming around november and the other december :D so im looking foward to that.

Rock on R*! This is just awesome and now I'm defintely not regretting buying my PSP (V1.50 BTW, so eat your hearts out! )


i dont think it wil run on 1.50,

I also own a v2.01 so I can also play 2.00+ games!


i also doubt that it will run on 2.00 most probaly 2.60 or 2.70 as all new psp games need the new firmware to play them. B)

I don't. Of course they've started making it much earlier, but they've announced it later than they did LCS, so I think that they've taken less time to make VCS than to make LCS. But that's just me, so live with it.

The thing that worries me is the era. One of my favourite things in VC was the tunes (80's child B) ) Driving to the Airport with the sun rising as Squeeze came on ..... ahhh, perfect (assuming you know the tune and the line). I'd be perfectly happy with an exact copy to be honest :)
