Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Coming to PSN Next Week

R* writes:

'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' (Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, PS3)

They really should release these for the PS Vita as well but I welcome this news

It's probably just a matter of time/logistics.

Or the fact they won't to release GTA Vita game 1st then announce that the PSN version of GTA 3/VC/SA could now be bought on Vita.

Does anyone know, are these HD remakes or are they just straight ports? I would still be fun to play either way but an HD remake would make vice city look soo much better at this point.

straight port
SolidStoner  +   1109d ago
are you sure? It will look not so good on these new big screens............
TooTall19  +   1109d ago
go on psn and download san andreas. its a ps2 classic which are straight ports
violents  +   1109d ago
that sucks I have a huge tv and straight ports to hd res on a big tv make them look blurry and weird sometimes.
E2S  +   1109d ago
WHich is why I don't buy them. They look very off on a big flat screen. Maybe they'd look good on Vita though.

Reminds me that I really want Manhunt on PSN. I see manhunt 2 on there for PsP and it's not playable for Ps3.
iamnsuperman  +   1109d ago
Is manhunt 2 good because I have never played a Manhunt game and it does look like a good purchase on the Vita Store
Donnywho  +   1106d ago
not sure if it's good but I loved the first one. Pretty sick stuff.
RuperttheBear  +   1109d ago
This is nearly as good as when I bought the gta series from Steam for £5. At least ps3 owners can now get Vice City.

Sweet.

My favourite GTA game! , I know it isn't in HD but I'm probably still gonna buy it :)
enkeixpress  +   1109d ago
I want to play both the original Vice City & San Andreas on my PS Vita.. A lot of other GTA fans with Vitas want that as well.

Make it happen Rockstar :) <3

I rebought this game for a few bucks at Gamestop so im set.

@TooTall and E2S.

I really believe all PS3 consoles are able to play PS2 games since these PS2 games on PSN are just straight ports.

Is this on Xbox Live or just PSN?
Emilio_Estevez  +   1109d ago
This announcement from R* only states PSN, so looks like no XBL for now.
MadMen  +   1109d ago
yea, hadnt seen anything eithier, Ill download on my PS3 just have a lot of my retro games already dled on my xbox.

Eithier way, cant wait!

The iOS version does have some graphical "upgrades." For instance, the items on the "rack" at Ammu-Nation are more detailed. I hope these upgrades are used in this port to the PS3.
THANK you Rockstar!!!!
Outsider-G  +   1109d ago
It's great to have these classics on the PS3. Too bad they're not HD collections.
OllieBoy  +   1109d ago
It's criminal that there's no GTA HD Collection.
