In a shocking turn of events, Take-Two has filed a lawsuit against the team behind the reverse-engineered projects of GTA 3 & GTA Vice City.
Allegedly they're working on remakes, but this still doesn't make any sense. These have existed for years, and these games are PS2 old. If they're remaking them using the GTAV engine, no one is going to care as no amount of mods will make a PS2 game look like a mid-range PC game today without having a timeless artstyle which GTA3 and the gang don't have. As the article says this is a near pointless battle. If anything file the lawsuit, and come to a settlement to hire them to help make your old games better and launch the remasters with their help. Their project isn't hurting GTA sales, because 99% of the people running that emulated version wouldn't be buying GTA 3 anyway.
They're allegedly remastering them, not remaking them ... hence the insecurity.
Wow this is petty, you already ordered a cease and desist which they followed, leav'em alone
Announce some new games so I can sell your shit stock you politihacks.
Just torrent them on PC don't give em a cent, Grab all the GTA games now for free 😀
This is the way.
His is just petty and unnecessary.
SO You need a pc game? So if they bought doesn't it mean they have the right to modify? This is part of expression of art, right to use
They do have the right to modify but I believe the distribution part is not in there right Just like legally I could rip all my disk games and movies I just can’t distribute any part of it
They should have hired them like CDPR did with mod makers.
That would require Take Two to be ran by decent people instead of the chodes currently in charge.
This is really strange what Rockstar is doing. People reverse engineered these games like 10 years ago and posted all the sources online. Half of modding communities wouldn't be alive if these sources were not available. It will be interesting to follow this. Keep us updated
Fuck this company, I torrented all GTAs on PC,, let's see them try to take down any game torrents LMAO haha they can't no one can, if that were the case there would be no games to torrent. Any mods should be spread on torrent sites not any direct links. Leave the fans alone and let them mod any game, there is no $$ to be made, they are doing it because they love it. The only company I can think of that comes to mind is ID Software, they would love it if you were modding their games, this is before the Bethesda shit bags took over.
They just proved themselves a console oriented business , they ain't Bethesda or any others who involved in modding their games , I get it.
