Found on YouTube: Vice City on Commodore 64?

Posted on July 27 2012, 10:59am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

As part of The Majami Hiroz Show channel on YouTube (pronounced 'miami heroes' - a nostalgic "Welcome to the 80's" themed channel that pays tribute to 1980s music, movies and games in the form of original 8-bit homages), we stumbled upon their latest entry: "GTA: Vice City - Final Mission (C64 Version)".

An awesome little re-imagining of the denouement of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, "Keep Your Friends Close" - the bloody grand finale shootout at the Vercetti mansion rendered as a believable 1980s 8-bit arcade experience complete with midi-style audio, vintage pixel effects, and other appropriate trimmings.

Spoiler alert: if you never actually finished Vice City, you might not want to have the ending revealed to you through this 8-bit depiction - in which case, we recommend finishing up those old affairs properly.

Otherwise, do enjoy:

              @Ispintechno "We know it can sometimes feel like we complain about everything. It's not easy to please everyone. And there will always be complaints on social media and message boards, no matter how candid you are, no matter how many questions you answer. But people complain because they care. And if you show that you care back? Maybe there'll be a little less to complain about."

                    @FixerAlex Hey mate, GTA III has been delayed as there were some last minute issues with getting clearance for a certain audio track in the game. But the teams at Rockstar are on it to review how to best get this title on PSN.

                    Grace Chen (Playstation Store Director) said that it now may be possible that this could cause GTA III to not be able to come to PSN as a PS2 Classic if the issue cannot be resolved. Rockstar are working at their best to get the title on PSN, so I'm sure they will update us all on the Newswire.
