Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories Coming to PSN Next Week

Posted on March 29 2013, 10:53am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Next week, look for the collection of downloadable Rockstar classics on PSN to be expanded with Toni Cipriani's and Vic Vance's chapters in the Grand Theft Auto saga - Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories. LCS and VCS now join other Rockstar titles from the PS2 era in the PlayStation 2 Classics series that can be downloaded and played on PS3s.
 
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories
The streets of Liberty City are in turmoil. Warring mafiosi vie for control as the town begins to self-destruct under waves of political corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking and union strikes. No one can be trusted as Toni tries to clean up the mess of the city's chaotic underworld. Deranged hit men, morally depraved tycoons, cynical politicians and his own mother stand in his way as Toni tries to bring the city under Leone control. 
 
Forced to fight for his life in an odyssey that will shake Liberty City to its foundations, Toni must use any means necessary to secure his place in the leadership of the Leone family in a town up for grabs.
 
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
Vice City, 1984. Opportunity abounds in a city emerging from the swamps, its growth fueled by the violent power struggle in a lucrative drugs trade. Construction is everywhere as a shining metropolis rises from foundations of crime and betrayal. 
 
As a soldier, Vic Vance has always protected his dysfunctional family, his country, himself. One bad decision later and that job is about to get much harder. Kicked out onto the streets of a city torn between glamour and gluttony, Vic is faced with a stark choice - build an empire or be crushed.
 
This pair of tales from Liberty City circa '98 and Vice City circa '84 respectively will be available for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99 each.
 
Also recently released and now available from the PlayStation Store are the first two entries in the open-world street racing series Midnight Club. One of the original PS2 launch titles, Midnight Club: Street Racing features open city racing across NYC and London, while Midnight Club II lets you compete across LA, Paris, and Tokyo. PS3 players can also get the latest entry in the Midnight Club series - Midnight Club: Los Angeles - as a full game digital download on PSN.
 
Stay tuned for word on more Rockstar titles coming soon to the PS2 Classics collection.

        I still dream about these two games for pc, even though it will be difficult, there are possibilities of getting them to pc?

          GTA Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories lags like crazy. The game is unplayable with these lags.

              Yeah, I also have a bad frame rate with LCS. I haven't tried VCS yet. I'm not going to lie, I'm kind of disappointed by this... I was really looking forward to playing LCS properly for the first time!

                Just bought and downloaded both. It's nice I don't have to hook up my PS2 anymore to play these.

                  Just wondering, does LCS have multiplayer on the PS3 version? If I remember right, the PSP had it, but not the PS2 so I wouldn't think the PS3 will.

                    Hey R* I just started playing LCS, but it's very laggy. Even if I turn off smoothing and upscaling. It really makes the game less enjoyable.

                      @kkxx1000 Sorry you're experiencing lagging - we recommend contacting Sony's PlayStation Support. Good luck

                            i have a funny story of myself:
                            when GTA Liberty City Stories was released, i buyed it. arriving at home i opened it and the wrong disc was inside! what was inside? San Andreas! I played SA a lot at a friend, but since there i never had it myself. So I keeped San Andreas and it became my favourite game ever.

                            BUT I never bought Liberty City Stories though, but now it's time for that!
