Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Coming to PSN Next Week

Posted on January 24 2013, 10:39am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Ever since the releases of San Andreas for PSN and Vice City for iOS and Android, we've received more than a few requests from the community wondering when they'd be able to touch down at Escobar International and return to the neon-lit streets and sun-splashed shores of Ocean Beach on their PS3s. Today, we can confirm that it won't be long now...
The original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will arrive for download on PlayStation Network next week as part of their PS2 Classics collection - on Tuesday, January 29th in North America and Wednesday January 30th in Europe, for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99.
Stay tuned for more classic Rockstar titles coming for download to PSN in the weeks and months ahead.

          So...I have an Xbox there anyway I could get JUST Vice City on it? Vice City was the first GTA game I ever played and it will ALWAYS be my favorite but I don't want to purchase a PS3 just to play it because I don't have that kind of money, especially with the next gen consoles right around the corner. So I ask, are we gonna see VC on the XBLMarketplace? Or am I able to buy JUST VC on disc?

                    hello RockstarGames,

                    please read this message and reply, please please read this message. and please add these ideas/suggestions to Grand Theft Auto V:

                    1. First Person Driving view: if you press select (for changing the view) that you can switch to first person driving view. with realistic details in car, realistic gear handeling, traffic indicator for if you go to the left or right etc.
                    2. Flying Bodyparts: if there are high explosions, then the bodyparts of civilians or the police fly off. like in real 18+ games (but not your own bodyparts, only the one of the AI in the game)

                    3. Machete knife of other long knifes: just like in Gta 3. in that game you had a samurai sword so that you could cut the bodyparts off of the AI. please bring this back in Gta V

                    4. finishing moves: that you can finish AI with an special move (i mean with the knifes) like in the AC and the Mortal Kombat games.

                    5. brake your bones: if you fall from something high, that you can brake your bones. and you must call 911 and then the ambulance picks you up, an then says the game ''a few hours later...'' and then you are operated and you can go back on the street. and you can brake your bones in high car crashes.

                    6. hand bow and crossbow: please bring this weapons in Gta V that would be really cool. but the AI must not die from one arrow, no they still have to wankle before they die unfortenly.

                    7. flying passenger planes

                    8. flying into buildings: with helicopters, jets and other planes. if you want to crash into a building that you can crash in it and that the building will collapse/have heavy damage

                      Will these games ever make it to the PS VITA?! That thing is super powerful and would be amazing to take GTA with me on the road!

                          Does Rockstar have plans to release some more of their original music made for Vice City on iTunes?

                          Some suggestions:

                          - The Bull is Wrong by Stuart Ross (Alpha Banditos), Rockstar North
                          - Yo Te Miré by Craig Conner (Tres Apenas Como Eso), Rockstar North
                          - La Vida Es Una Lenteja by Craig Conner (Unaesta), Rockstar North
                          - The Vice City theme by Lex Horton
                          - The Vice City credits song
                          - The track that plays during the drug deal ambush in the beginning (sounds very Jan Hammer like, great tune)

                            @LegionYT1994 Thanks for the suggestions, Legion
                            We'll let you know if we release any of those in the future - nothing to announce now though

                            @ Thanks for replying! I'd really love to have the first 3 tracks I mentioned, they're all heard on Radio Espantoso. I suppose you could release them in a 3-track digital album, like the Love Fist EP. Once again thanks!

                            @IMOTSKI82 Sure. You should be able to access it on PlayStation Store by doing a search for "grand theft". The price will depend on the currency in your country. Hit us up if you have any issues finding it:

                          Got my copy last night! My PS3's quickly becoming "The R* Machine", lol. Keep the classics (and new hits) coming! Maybe someday I'll get REAL lucky and see "The Warriors" up on PSN. >:D

                              @mrpedigree Me to But I have asked,them and they want say.For now I will believe it want ever,see the light of day on psn! Because it will cause drama,with people! It is annoying because,you don't even kill innocent people.They r psychopathic killers.And they a not exactly handsome people,you kill.They r terrifying lol. I didn't care for manhunt 2.The first one was amazing.

                            Rockstar, may I ask what the technical issues are that stop Xbox users from getting Vice City and III for the XBL marketplace ?

                            It doesn't really bother me too much as I have a disk version of Vice City but I'm just curious.

                              Me too, but I think the next Store update is next week on wednesday, I wish it wouldn't be so and i can play it now.
                            • Joef360on January 30 2013, 1:12pmReplyFlag
                              Oh :( I can't seem to find Vice City on Xbox, only the trilogy on Amazon but I already have San andreas.


                              PS: Since it's not coming to Xbox I hope us Xbox users get some kind of compensation!
                              • VariableAgaaon January 30 2013, 4:14pmReplyFlag
                                @Joef360 Sorry mate, they said the couldn't bring GTA VC and GTA 3 to XBOX live like GTA SA.
                                PS3 FTW!
                                So you have to buy GTA the Triology on Amazone like you said,
                                you buy a XBOX (not XBOX 360) and buy it for this console,
                                you buy it on PC or
                                you buy a PS3 and download it from the PSN.

                                Cheers VariableAgaa
