GTA Vice City re-release?

#1G-ZissPosted 12/5/2012 6:36:50 PM(edited)
I read an article that said Rockstar is re-releasing GTA VC in celebration of the 10 year anniversary. Does anyone know which consoles/systems it's going to be available for?

Also, what about San Andreas? Is that available on XBL?

It will be available for select IOS & Android devices. I haven't heard anything about San Andreas.

It should be hitting PSN soon, but it's not going to be the new Anniversary release. Just a "PS2 Classics" dump of the original version like they recently did with GTA3. They were both re-rated for PSN earlier this year at the same time so it's gonna happen.

EDIT: Oh and SA has been on XBL for a long time. Sure looks like ass on an HDTV though.

Don't give a damn about that crappy SA game but I do wish we had VC on a newer console so I don't have to try and find a PS2 to play my original copy on.

The achievements would be great too if it was an XBLA game.

As stated, Vice City anniversary is for iOS and Android, comes out today I believe. HD graphics, but dont expect any changes to the actual game. It's just really sharp and runs very smooth now.

As for San Andreas, nothing confirmed, but that'll probably also get re-released for phones on it's 10 year anniversary, considering that it was already done with both III and VC and I see no reason R* would break the trend (unless VC absolutely bombs or something, which I highly doubt).

LOL VC was the best for sure, but SA was FAR from crappy. I bet you thought GTA IV was just great huh?

EDIT: I am not trying to be a prick just I have found most people who disliked SA thought IV was great. I am on the opposite side of that, I think SA was great and IV sucked.

That seems pretty true to me too. I don't hate SA, but it's my least favorite. It's the only GTA that started to bore me before I finished it. It's an awesome technical achievement that they made such a big game in 2004, but for me bigger size didn't mean bigger fun. I've always felt like a weirdo anomaly among the GTA fanbase so it doesn't really surprise me that my least favorite is by far the #1 fan favorite.

Whereas IV is definitely my favorite and I was happy that it was more of a back-to-basics return to form, far more similar to GTA 3 and VC, which I loved dearly.

While I liked the story of VC more than the thug-life San Andreas storyline, I HATED the city of Vice City. It felt smaller than any of the other games, backed up by the fact that the first island had an obnoxiously large beach.

Yes, Vice City had the worst map of any GTA game by far IMO.
