We've got a few tidbits of Liberty City Stories information for you, first of all the 'exclusive' information that GAME claimed to have is now available to pick up in stores across the UK. This storyline prologue was among the info.

"Taking place three years prior to the events of Grand Theft Auto 3, you'll play as scorned wise guy Toni Cipriani who has just returned to Liberty City after being forced into exile for killing a made man as a favour to mob boss Salvatore Leone.

With the dust settled, the Leones welcome Toni back and put him back to work as one of their toughest soldiers"

Also, in the latest issue of PSM in the USA, it states that swimming and interior enviroments won't be availible. We'll have more on that article in a short while. Thanks TomK

Posted ImageSubscribers to GameInformer magazine in the USA recently received their latest issue. In it is a nice preview of Liberty City Stories. In amongst the article are 4 new screenshots. Some new information is also in the article:
  • Hidden Packages, Stunt Jumps, Rampages, Taxi Missions and Vigilante Missions are all returning
  • New vehicles and weapons are planned
  • The game will take the average gamer between 80 and 100 hours to complete
  • The targetting system has improved upon what was implemented in San Andreas
It sounds like the targetting system will be much better for us to use, judging by a quote in the magazine. They spoke to Rockstar's Todd Zuniga:

The targeting system is based on an improved version of the San Andreas scheme, making for what Zuniga feels is  "The best [targeting system] we've had so far."

GameInformer also comment on how impressive the game looks at this stage, and while they say popup issues are still be addressed it sounds like everything else is going smoothly!

We don't have any high quality shots for you but this low-quality scan which is not unreadable clearly shows you them.

Thanks to GTAPortable.com for the news.

After reporting last week about GAME having exclusive information on GTA LCS being sent out with a free PSP pack for all people who preordered a Sony PSP console, I emailed GAME the other day to see if they could provide me with any specifics on what this info is.
I received a reply today, and it seems they haven't even received the info themselves.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your e-mail.

I can confirm that we did not receive the GTA Liberty Stories information and are still awaiting confirmation of when we will receive these.  As soon as I have more information I will contact you back with a resolution.

...

So it looks like we wont be getting sent our PSP packs until they have it altogether, and by that time we may already know the information from other sources. In addition to the LCS info, the pack, which comes in a sleek black gift case includes everything you want to know about the launch titles, a PSP life-size replica containing special info cards, a DVD packed with footage, and details of an exclusive trade-in offer!
If GAME contact me again I'll keep you posted on what I can find out.
