Posted ImageScreen Fun, a German magazine, has a preview of Vice City Stories in their latest issue. Details are a little bit scarce at the moment, but I'll summarise what we've heard so far.
  • You'll see many different vehicles on the screen at the same time. This was a problem which has been fixed since previous iterations, whereby you'd see many of the same vehicle in certain areas.
  • The controls are the same as they were for Liberty City Stories
  • Vic will receive text messages on a pager. This is actually how Claude received messages in GTA3.
  • The invitingly named Chunder Wheel, (the big ferris wheel) is in the centre of the city.
  • You'll need the helicopter in many missions in the later part of the game.
There are three new scanned screenshots too, along with one other we've already seen, high res but rather grainy:

As well as three artworks depicting some new characters:

Sweet ass. Can't wait. It's going to pretty much kick all sorts of ass.

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.

Yeah, I'll update the post when I get more details. I hate it when these European mags get previews, it's a pain in the arse getting the damn thing translated. It's like a semi adrenaline rush anticipating the new info, if any.

AW f***ING RIGHT!!! I hated it when I would drive in a rich district with sports cars and I would only see either a cheetah, infernus, etc and not all of the sports cars that should spawn in that area. THANK YOU GOD!!! Time to go and add more to my topic!

It's old, that's why I didn't post it although actually it does look a little different. Anyway I just updated my post becuase I've decided to host the scans myself now.

And the artworks.

Nice pics. Wonder who those 3 artworks of people are? First one looks like some big tough guy (lol), second looks like crooked cop and third looks like an old redneck.

Nice pics Chris! It's good that many of the missions in the latter stage of the game will use helicopters, as they were not used much in previous GTA's.
