Rockstar has more Sony PSP goodness

Rockstar has had an interesting ride over the last year or so. From the Hot Coffee scandal to announcing their first next generation game was Table Tennis (Next gen PONG to some). Now some more interesting news has come to light in Rockstar's second-quarter financial report.

"Additional products planned for 2006 from Rockstar Games include Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories for the PSP, scheduled for October release, an additional PSP title based on another premier brand, and Bully."

Rockstar, please stop overlooking Grand Theft Auto’s other classic games

There's far more to GTA's heritage than the same three games every time.

The stories games were really fun, better than GTA 3.

Fluke_Skywalker957d ago

Vice City Stories is actually my favourite GTA by far. Just a great story and the best soundtrack of all the games. Especially VCPR radio station, some of those shows were absolute comedy genius.

Fntastic957d ago

Yeah the humour was at least up there with VC even in the cutscenes, and as you said great music also.

Remaster Gta IV with 4k resolution and 60fps

Profchaos957d ago

Man I'd love that game updated in today's rate engine. Even on PC to this day the frame rate is tied with some gameplay mechanics press space bar to climb onto a truck or back into the chopper during the final chase is impossible because the game running above 30 fps ties the speed you need to press space in with the frame rate so 60 to some 230ps capable monitors mean you need to be the flash to complete it and that bug persists to this day even after rockstar re released the complete edition on PC last year.

MadLad957d ago

Yeah.
It's sad just how crap that port was.

The fact they got away with that and never fixed it is ridiculous. It's borderline unplayable on many rigs.

Profchaos957d ago

It's a huge disappointment that in 2021 still the only legal way to play VCS is via PSP, PS2 disc or PSV / PS3 backwards compatibility.

Despite re released of the mainline games GTA 3 vc Sa on android and iOS even LCS got an iOS port we can't play VCS anywhere on a modern system.

Bioware is a shell of its former self. Blizzard is imploding. Rockstar turned into one of the biggest shill companies in gaming and barely ever release games.

This is why I'm tuning more and more to indies and AA studios almost entirely when it comes to what I'm playing.

Speaking of, I've been pretty hooked on a little known Roguelike action platformer called Fury Unleased. Games addicting, and can typically be had for dirt cheap, apparently. Also has online co-ol It even has a workshop where people contributed a lot of awesome/hilarious faces you can use for your character.

Funny you say that most of these giant companies were really just Indies that stumbled onto a great idea.

Rockstar took gta3 to E3 and almost no one cared it didn't get them any attention until it actually released.

So really any indie studio can be the next big thing but it's hard for huge studios to keep momentum over time think how Ubisoft and EA because their investors want sequels of proven IP's which stiffles innovation.

GameZenith956d ago

Rockstar went to E3? I thought they was beneath them.

Absonite956d ago

I remember when GTA 3(D) was announced, I was hyped. I had the first 2 on PS1 and when I heard there was going to be a 3D edition, I was surprised. Stl hoping for a 3D Hotline Miami!!

EazyC957d ago

Seeing as new titles are taking 5 years+ to push out at this stage...to be honest, R*'s games are so good I'd happily see most of their catalogue get remasters. This could be a nice gauge to prove to them that we still want a new Midnight Club, Bully etc.

Also, I would love to play GTA IV again. I f always adored it but I find that people appreciate it a lot more nowadays.

Dreaming of a new Midnight Club for current and new gen

BlaqMagiq1956d ago

They could remaster Midnight Club 3 and Los Angeles and I would be satisfied.

10 Classic PlayStation-Centric Franchises That Should Have Come to Vita

VGChartz's Adam Cartwright: "Along with this, there have always been franchises which are heavily associated with PlayStation, whether it be helping to shape the console’s demographic (such as Tomb Raider), or simply appearing on every piece of Sony hardware available (WipEout). These tend to be the system sellers that people look for when investing in a platform, even if the specific series have shifted and rarely stayed consistent like Halo or Mario.

Vita is unfortunately the first Sony system which never really took off and its tepid hardware sales meant that multiple franchises which would have been a shoe-in for any other piece of PlayStation hardware haven’t appeared – it’s these series that I’m going to look at in this article (what they were; where they originally appeared; how well they’d have worked on the console; and potential alternatives which are available on the platform). They’ve been part of a vicious circle – not appearing on Vita because of weak sales, but stalling the handheld even further by not showing up."

Woulda done a lot better with exclusives like that. Also God of War, Souls, Syphon Filter, R&C.

I'd love to see a spec refresh, faster CPU/GPU.
