but, but, hd remakes are an evil scheme to get you to pay for a game that you already have for your ps2. why would anyone want or support that?/s

They really are a evil scheme. If you want the game so badly just get the PC version.

You can get the game on PSN, however when you buy the PS4 u will be back to square 1. PS3 PSN games may not work on PS4. If you want to build a library then get it on the PC.

Plus you have tons of graphical mods on the PC too, which makes the game look even better.

Another point to remember, even if you buy the PSN version it probably will be locked at 720p. Few years from now when 4K Tvs are the norm, u will again be stuck with a game thats running at 720p and will look full of jaggies on a 4K tv. With the PC version you can simply increase the res yourself and make the game look good regardless of screen. Hence the PC version really is the best solution and most cost effective one. Funny but i bought GTA 3 on PC when it first released i can play it even today on my current rig, no need to buy the game over and over again.

Well, wouldnt that apply to EVERY single game released on the PS3?

Why bother buying any games at all then?

I read that GTA III and Vice City are coming to PSN while SanAndreas is set for the HD remake...

I see this a lot on here about how pc is so great because it can upscale old games.

Upscaling gta3 to 4k will if anything make the game look worse. If the graphics are ass to begin with then no amount of post effects will help it.

Agreed but I'm still getting it. It's been years (more than 7 I think) since I've last played GTA 3 and Vice City. I hope they release both Vice City and San Andreas in the near future too.

I would be all over San Andreas!
Perjoss  +   1111d ago
You can get San Andreas on the 360 as a download title.

I have it on PC and PS2, would buy 3rd time for torphies
infamous-butcher  +   1111d ago
I'm in the exact same boat here. there's no incentive to buy it for a third time.
torchic  +   1111d ago
yea echoing what everyone else has said I hope they make a Vice City HD remake with trophies, I'd gladly splash €40 on that

How many hours i've played this, miss old times. Great classic.
claud3  +   1111d ago
Excellent, loved and still love this game
ZeroChaos  +   1111d ago
They should have done what Killzone HD did. :(
claud3  +   1111d ago
Even if it wa not in HD, I would still play it
SageHonor  +   1111d ago
I thought this was already in the psn store?
iamnsuperman  +   1111d ago
It is about time. The game has all ready been on the ios store for quite a while now. You would think it would have released before but hey at least it is coming

Would rather want Vice City.
