Just one day before the start of E3 and gaming site Joystiq have essentially confirmed the name of the Grand Theft Auto PSP game.
Liberty City Stories will be its name.

I was able to check out a few of the booths being built at E3 this afternoon, one of which was that of Rockstar Games. It was pretty simple—basically just a bunch of buses parked inside a chainlink fence—but the important part was what was painted on the buses. You see, each one was dedicated to a different Rockstar project, and, nestled between a Midnight Club bus and a Bully bus (delightful alliteration, might I add), was a bus that was painted totally black but for a bit of text that read, “Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories” directly beneath the PSP logo. Could this be the official title of GTA PSP?

To further the claim, Rockstar Games are the registrant of the domain name LibertyCityStories.com which makes this a very viable name for the game.
We'll bring you more news as we get it. Our Liberty City Stories section of the website will from now on be reachable via GTALibertyCity.com, a rather apt domain for the game don't you think?

Thanks to Codename:GTA for the news.

People say there is a good change that you will play as Catalina. But then again there is a change you can play as anyone! Lets just see later this week. If they have it at E3 that mean that they will launch the site soon...

Actually, the person who found out the title said that it MIGHT NOT be the title. It might just be the name of the booth for all we know. You know? Stories of the game. Where you get your news for "Liberty City". If it was the name of the game, it's terrible. That is a horrid name for a GTA game.

I admit it's a bit of a mouthful to say, I guess it would commonly be abbreviated to GTA LCS. Even GTA Liberty City would be a better name in my opinion, I think it was wise of me to buy that domain though since it's definitely set in Liberty city, so it doesn't matter if they change the name of the game or not it's still directly related :D

I still like my explaination. The reason the booth said Liberty City Stories is because it will have screenshots, videos, demos, information, etc. on the new GTA PSP, which will be set in LIBERTY CITY.

Didn't Rockstar buy a domain with LCS in it? Oh well. I laugh at the people who are saying the name was confirmed. People people people, read the article yourself and you'd see the guy said it MIGHT be the name.
