Rockstar sent out their latest broadcast via email earlier this morning, those of you who actually scroll to the bottom of emails (thanks for reminding me Adriaan) will know that the LCS competition winners have been announced.
Quoted from the email:

Big, big shout out to all the winners of our latest sweepstakes, the Liberty City Stories Fully Equipped Giveaway. Especially, grand prize winner, Catherine Bourne of The Woodlands, TX who won a Liberty City Stories outfitted PSP™ complete with skins, hardshell case, and lanyard carry tag - plus a limited-run Liberty City Stories t-shirt.
Ten runners-up got all the said trimmings, just without the hardware.

By popular demand, the top selling PSP title, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, is also coming to PlayStation 2 this year. So all those that insist on resisting the handheld movement can nevertheless look forward to returning to the unwelcoming streets of the good old LC. Stay tuned for release date announcement and first media.

Rockstar telling us to "stay tuned" for the release date announcement and first media... So I guess that means sometime this month they will release all the information. I'm pretty sure there will be some sort of big announcement very soon anyway, so definitely stay tuned for the latest GTA news right here.

Earlier today Take2Games published their latest press release, and the conference call has just finished.

In the press release, we can confirm Liberty City Stories has an almost certain release date of 28th April, an exact date wasn't given but...

...and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories for PlayStation 2, planned for release in late April...

Take2 also re-confirmed that a new GTA PSP title is due out this year, presumably in October, it still remains titleless.
And in 2007, sequels have been confirmed for "several of Rockstar's most successful franchises". We can presume one of these would be another Grand Theft Auto title, at least that's what we're all hoping for.

We'll keep you posted on any further announcements on a next gen GTA game.

PS2 LCS Rumored to be Priced and Dated

In the past week, various retailers posted release dates of Liberty City Stories for the PS2. It's a well known fact that many retailers make up release dates in order to encourage people to preorder the game. However, PSXtreme claims that retailers received an e-mail from the publisher, Take-Two Interactive, revealing a release date of April 17 and a price tag of $29.99.

Seeing as it's Take-Two's First Quarter results of 2006 tommorow, it is highly likely that Take-Two did infact send out the information to retailers first of all, to put up before they make the official announcement tommorow. During these results Take-Two also like to reveal information about their upcoming games and make announcements pertaining to release dates. Earlier today the company announced two new titles, a Table Tennis game for the Xbox 360 and a game based on the popular TV-series: Family Guy.

We'll be listening (and I know most of you also) to the conference call tommorow and waiting for the press release. EGM said last month that they'll be posting an exclusive preview about the game that'll include information and screenshots of the PS2 version of Liberty City Stories. The magazine is said to be out before the end of this week!

We'll keep you posted.
