PS2 to Tell Vice City Stories

gtavcs-logo.jpgIt comes as no surprise that Rockstar Games is planning on releasing GTA: Vice City Stories on PS2. This comes from ESRB’s website where the US-based ratings board has given the game a ‘M’ rating (big surprise, huh?), though the entry has since been taken down.

GTA’s first PSP outing, Liberty City Stories, saw itself being released on the PS2 about six months after the PSP release. It was quite a big success on the platform, as it made its way on to the top ten best-selling games of 2006 list. The same seems to be happening to Vice City Stories, though the game’s publisher is yet to make an announcement.

Vice City Stories Gets Pack Shot, Price, Date

Sequel to the most popular PSP title ever – Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories – has gotten the official cover shot, as well as the official retail price and a shipping date. Set for release on October 17 in North America and October 20 in Europe, Vice City Stories will retail as a premium title for $50. The game, even though the pack shot shows “Rating Pending”, will most definitely be rated Mature.

GTA: Vice City Stories Announced

Somehow missed this during E3: the next PSP game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise will be set in Vice City and is dubbed GTA: Vice City Stories. The game will take place in the familiar city that was visited back in the PS2 game, but will feature an all-new story, characters, scenarios and more.

Vice City Stories is in development at Rockstar Leeds and will be “smashing expectations of portable gaming,” according to Sam House, founder of Rockstar Games and Executive Producer.

The game is set for release on October 17 in the US, with Europe getting it three days later. As for GTA: Liberty City Stories for the PS2 – it’s shipping next month.
