VCS PS2 Rumours Debunked

You may have read on various websites and forums on the interwebs over the last few days some juicy rumours regarding new content and multiplayer modes in the PlayStation 2 port of Vice City Stories. Thanks to Eurogamer, we can confirm that sadly, none of them are true - the only improvements you'll see will be to the graphics, and increased draw distance.

Eurogamer were able to get word from Rockstar debunking these rumours, and while there were no comments specifically regarding what seems to be an error on Take2's Italian mirror, it sounds like there won't be any exclusive content in the game either. However, we'll have to wait for more confirmation on this though.

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.

Rockstar have updated the official site for Vice City Stories recently with a small but surprising piece of news regarding mobile phone content now available for your cellular device. A mobile site has now been set up where you can purchase a variety of Vice City Stories artwork to adorn your phone's background with, as well as a few sound clips from the game, including the theme tune. All the items are priced between .99 and .99, and are unfortunately for those who are interested, only available to those of you living in America.
For those of you who don't want to shell out any money, or who don't live in America, then we can offer you the GTA3 Pager beep as a ringtone. A nice bit of nostalgia for you there.

The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) have today published a listing for Vice City Stories, in which it seems to have kept the 18 rating which it received for the PSP version - presumably this re-rating must be for a PS2 version.

In addition to this the Office of Film and Literature Classification (OFLC) in Australia have given their rating of the PS2 version of Vice City Stories, the game received an MA15+ rating.

We're assuming that Take Two will make an official announcement on the game when the time is right for them, stay tuned for more updates soon.
