Will GTA 5 Appear on the PS Vita?

Gi - With GTA 5 releasing this spring, it’s never too late to speculate on how the newest entry in the Grand Theft Auto franchise will impress and innovate. Though Rockstar has only announced the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of GTA 5, an online petition for a PC version has reached over 100,000 signatures. Suffice it to say, any gamer who doesn’t get to play the newest GTA on their platform of choice will feel left out.

I would rather have a GTA made specifically for Vita instead of a port of 5. like GTA Liberty City Stories 2 or GTA San Andreas Stories.

Nitrowolf21990d ago

yea me to, I don't want GTA V on PS Vita TBH, I want a new unique one for it's hardware. Not saying I want them to use the Vita's gyro feature, touchpad and ect. I just want something unique and completely different than GTA5 on it. though San Andreas Remake for the Vita would be awesome

iamnsuperman1990d ago

I wouldn't mind a bit of remote play functionality for GTA V though.

EddieNX 1990d ago

There's prety much no way the vita could run GTAV. Isn't it going to be like 16GB+ game ?

The game would have to be rebuilt for the ps vita. That I would love. But no way in hell is that handheld powerfull enough to run GTAV.

YES I know it's an amazing handheld with the world most powerfull portable graphics. That DOES NOT mean it's powerfull enough to run GTAV. Or the vast majority of Ps3 and 360 games for that matter.

ShabbaRanks1990d ago

Imagine using ur vita as a map screen in GTA5 :)

riverstars861990d ago

I'm with Kingofwiiu, there is no way to port GTA5 to the Vita. Anyone that disagreed with him is just a mindless fanboy.

NukaCola1990d ago

I am torn between San Andreas Stories or Chinatown Wars 2 on Vita. I think CTW on DS is one of the best GTAs out there. It has DRUG WARS and a stellar WANTED SYSTEM. I's like to see a GTA on Vita after playing Need for Speed Most Wanted anything open world on Vita is possible.

@Iamsuperman - that's a good idea.

But I think the vita should get a graphical overhaul of San andreas , that would be sweet or an entirely new GTA/Rockstar game in general.

You just know Rockstar will do SOMETHING with the vita eventually. Even if it's just a graphically upgraded port.

"But no way in hell is that handheld powerfull enough to run GTAV."

LOL ^ that coming from somebody that thinks Resident evil 3DS looks better than Uncharted: Golden Abyss..

poor kid still doesnt know the PSVita is one of the most powerful handhelds to date... awww..

go take a look at need for speed most wanted PSVita it runs perfectly like it does on the PS3 and its the full game, the same applies with wipeout also..

rockstar did the same thing with the PSP and PS2 with Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories and it was a job very well done, of course they can bring GTA V to the PSVita.

jujubee881990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

Let's make it happen, Rockstar and ATLUS!

JoGam1990d ago

I wish GTA China Wars was remade for Vita. I know you can play the PSP version but a optimized version for Vita would have been awesome.

SynGamer1990d ago

Honestly, I would prefer GTA V on the Vita just like the console versions will get, but with cross-play/cross-saves AND possibly some Vita specific content. How awesome would it be to play some GTA V during the day, and then pick up where you left off later on your console (PS3 obviously).

If not that, then something very similar to AC3 and AC3: Liberation.

badz1491990d ago

but there's always San Andreas Stories and Chinatown Stories that they can explore! GO R*! You guys know you guys wanna do it and you guys know they are gonna be a hit on Vita!

showtimefolks1989d ago

I think there will be a GTA title for vita not GTA 5 maybe. Psp GTA games sold quite well so t could work out for both parties, Sony could get a system seller game and RS will make money because GTA name is big enough to sell

If Rockstar is smart they will release 3 different Vita games, 1 for each of the 3 protagonists. 3 different prequels to tell back stories. This way the game(s) will not be sketchy & they would make a huge killing. Make it happen R*

lodossrage1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

That's actually a damn good idea. It would be basically using the Vita as a side story/ side game machine (something the PSP was called and mocked for)

But it could work.

piroh1990d ago

but it would need hell of a cooperation with Sony. see what happened to Agent

btw, where is a new Midnight club?

lodossrage1990d ago

What does Agent have to do with this? And what happened to it? I haven't heard anything about it outside of that E3 conference years ago.

Care to elaborate?

LOGICWINS1990d ago

That would ensure that people would HAVE to buy Vitas if they want to experience these side stories. Great idea.

Baka-akaB1990d ago

Lol judging at disagree someone is feeling queezy at the thought of needing to buy 3 different gta games .

I'm all for it

Bowzabub1990d ago

Yeah, as long as they all have different aspects to it. Like LatD & BoGT. I'm down.

vickers5001990d ago

Unless each individual game is priced 20+ bucks lower than the average Vita game or they all come in some $65 dollar bundle, or are at least stretched out (by at least a year), then that would be a terrible idea.

Who is going to buy three 40 dollar games just to get the full GTAV experience? Because if that's what they decide to do, then that creates the perception that you're not getting the full experience, but instead paying 120 bucks for what ps3/360 only charges 60 bucks for.

Long term it might work, but short term, it would probably fail.

Theangrybogan1990d ago

"Who is going to buy three 40 dollar games just to get the full GTAV experience?"


Not all people are broke or tight-arsed. The more GTA the better I say.

SoundGamer1990d ago

People seem to have short-term memory. PSP games launched at $39.99 too, remember?

GTA games on the PSP sold millions worldwide.

Chinatown wars sold over 1 million on PSP.

Vice City Stories sold over 5 million on PSP.

Liberty City Stories sold over 8 million on PSP.

So that's three GTA games on PSP that millions were more than happy to pay $40 for. Sure you can get them for less now that the time passed, but those were the average launch prices of the games.

Bowzabub1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

Yeah, I highly doubt they would release them all at once. I don't believe that was ever part of the conversation. But even if they were somehow miraculously released together, people would still buy them. Might not sell like CoD right away, but I don't believe they would flop by any stretch of the imagination either. ([email protected] Vickers)^^^ And as far as the full GTA experience; I noticed that the timed exclusive DLC for X-Box didn't stop the PS3 version of GTA4 from selling into the high millions. What I'm talking about would be strictly for fan service. Millions of people would still buy GTA5 and not bat an eye at the Vita versions.
Regardless, these are purely hypotheticals.

vickers5001990d ago

"I don't believe that was ever part of the conversation."

The original commenter didn't suggest either option, so I was just replying to one of the two possibilities.


The difference is though, is that there was at least a year minimum between those releases.

Liberty City Stories PSP - October 24, 2005
Vice City Stories PSP - October 30, 2006
Chinatown Wars PSP - October 20, 2009

If 3 GTA games came out for Vita on the same day, each costing 40 bucks a piece, I'd think it was a money grabbing ripoff attempt. Why not just bundle them all together for the same price, or just slightly higher? It would seem like they are intentionally cutting content just to get money from the consumer.

"the timed exclusive DLC for X-Box didn't stop the PS3 version of GTA4 from selling into the high millions."

Because at that time, the DLC was just that, DLC. It wasn't a full fledged game (idk how long the bogt or latd is, so I don't know if it's on par with full fledged games, but back then, it was only exclusive "dlc" that nobody had any idea what it would be about). So that's not really comparable

SoundGamer1990d ago


Why on Earth would three GTA games come out on the same day for one system? It has never happened in the past and I hardly believe anyone was suggesting that it happens in the future.

There is no way that the company would even have a development schedule and budget for that sort of thing.

I don't think anyone was expecting three GTA games for the Vita on one day or even within one year.

vickers5001990d ago

"It has never happened in the past and I hardly believe anyone was suggesting that it happens in the future."

The disagrees to my comment and Theangrybogans comment (and the 6 agrees he got with it)suggest it. That was the point of my whole comment, and nobody would have replied to it or disagreed with it if they had a problem with all 3 games coming out the same day.

My point is that it would be a terrible idea, and I said as much in my comment, and people disagreed with it. I didn't say it would be a terrible idea to do all the games 'at some point', I said it would be a terrible idea to launch them all together.

Unless these agree/disagree ers don't know what the words "disagree" and "agree" mean, then at LEAST 6 people here suggest that it would be a good idea.

Rockstar have a GTA title in the works for the PS Vita, that's for damn sure.

thezeldadoth1990d ago

i dont think they want to throw away money. Vita just isn't a viable platform to sink money into.

porkChop1990d ago

That's why they should test the waters by releasing the 10th Anniversary Editions on the Vita. That would be very easy to do, and very cheap. I'd prefer if they upped the graphics a little more first though. But that would be an easy, cheap, and fast way to see the demand for GTA on the Vita.

thezeldadoth1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

i agree on that. i'm in no way bashing the vita as i know its a great piece of mobile hardware. Its just not doing so well critically or financially and its a huge risk right now to sink millions of dollars into.

Ult iMate1990d ago (Edited 1990d ago )

Ubisoft is happy and satisfied with Assassin's Creed Liberation sales for Vita. Go google it. And Liberation is a big game.
I think, Vita owners for now are mostly hardcore gamers, that support good games. So even GTA remakes have a good chance to sell well, not to mention install base growth with hypothetical GTA release for Vita.

porkChop1990d ago

I don't want a GTA V port. Just give me GTA: Vice City Nights. A new, original exclusive built specifically for the Vita would be much better than a port. I'm really surprised that Rockstar released the 10th Anniversary Editions of III and Vice City on iOS and Android, but completely skipped the Vita. I've heard from many developers that an Android version pretty much equals a Vita version, because the hardware is the same, and the OS are both based on Linux so they're very similar. Seems like a missed opportunity.
