VCS PS2 To Feature Exclusive Content

*UPDATE*: We have now found out that the new content will be: new side missions, stunt jumps, races and jobs - this according to popular Swiss retailer Ex Libris (in German and French). (Thanks Adriaan)


An interesting discovery recently made by Italian fansite GTA-Series suggests that the PlayStation 2 version of Vice City Stories may feature some exclusive content, not seen in the PSP version.

Not all of Take2's localised websites have been updated with this information yet, but the Italian mirror has (here). The first point of interest is that it states the PS2 port features various graphical enhancements - these will probably be in the way of increased draw distance and such. The more interesting point is the mention of exclusive content.
In Italian "Numerosi i contenuti inediti, esclusivi di questa versione per PlayStation 2." - which roughly translates to new content, exclusive to this version for PlayStation 2.

Bear in mind it may only be something fairly minor. We don't know anything it... just because it says "exclusive" doesn't mean there's some big new features ;)

Im hoping they fixed the glitches that were on the psp version, but im hoping they added the ability to enter the Malibu club and the Pole Position once again.

You can pick up both games for about £30. Play.com has VCS for £14.99.

I don't really buy stuff online unless it's the only way of getting it. That's how I got the GTA Kubricks. :D

I just need to get off of my lazy ass and get a steady job. I don't even have any money for college...I'm pretty screwed.

So I'd say after what happened with LCS not talking on very well on PS2 due to it lack of missions and the like they have decided to add to VCS to make it just as popular as it was on PSP. Nice idea Rockstar, top job fellas :).

Gives me even more incentive to buy it, thanks for the news Chris. I just hope, as the others have mentioned, that they fix any flaws or glitches in the game, but also to release it at the same price as when LCS came out (£14.99) because I don't wanna pay over £20 for a psp port.

Fixing glitches isn't "exclusive content"....

This is decently good news. I doubt I'd buy it, though.

Meh, It's good that It's coming out on PS2, But I hope It's better than VCS on PSP.

Sounds like fun, this is off topic but is there any rumor, news or just mere thought that VCS might go on xbox?

Well, LCS didn't so I think both of them are restricted to Sony consoles.

This new exclusive content sounds awesome. When is it being released? I probably won't be able to play it until January.

LCS PS2 never had multiplayer and I think it'll be the same thing with VCS.

*Does weird dance*

Awesome! I thought i'd be adding a few new trees to the scenery or something equally rubbish.

So glad I decided to wait for it.

I wonder why people are so worked up about multiplayer.

Multiplayer is rubbish.

Well, maybe not, but I won't use it as i'm a loser with no friends.
