Rockstar temporarily removes GTA: Vice City from Steam due to music licensing issues

DSOGaming writes: "Earlier yesterday, a lot of PC gamers noticed something awkward on Steam’s digital store. Even though GTA: Vice City was previously available for purchase, it was suddenly removed. And since GTA V was not announced – officially – for the PC, a lot of gamers got worried; did Rockstar give PC gamers the finger once again? " (Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, PC)

i hate music license issues. especially when a series like GTA is basically giving artists free promotion. greedy ass records labels.

Well this artist in question is Michael Jackson. I don't even think I need to go more into detail about Sony Music Entertainment and his relationship. The fact that it's SONY though which has a gaming subsidiary - you'd think they would not do this.

well each port has to get re-licensed. buts thats also why we haven't got a HD collection of GTA. they would have to re-license every song in GTA III, Vice City & San Andrea's at the same time. it costs way to much money to do that, its easier for them to do the iOS games because its one game at a time.

I don't know about everyone else but Vice City on ps2 in DTS was audio blis. I used to put the game in my now dead 60gb ps3 just to listen to the music. "sigh"

Maybe I can still find myself a second hand ps2...?

Check ebay or Amazon, I'm sure they'll have cheap PS2s.
