'Rockstar Games (Finally) Announces VCS for PS2'
This one has been a long time coming. Rockstar Games today put an end to weeks of rumour mongering by announcing that GTA: Vice City Stories will be released for PlayStation 2 on March 6th 2007 in North America and March 9th 2007 in Europe/UK
'VCS on PS2 at budgeted price?'
A quick check of online retailers has indicated that when Vice City Stories is released for PlayStation 2 in the UK it will be priced at the same £19.99 point as Liberty City Stories was last year. Both Gameplay and Play.com list this price although both are willing to ship the title for just £14.99.
This would indicate that the pricing structure for the title will remain the same as Liberty City Stories globally. If this is the case the game will be $19.99 in the US and €29.99 across Europe. Presently, however, no retailers outside of the UK are offering the title for pre-order.
'Confirmed Vice City Stories PS2 Details'
One of the UK's top gaming websites, Eurogamer, has managed to break Rockstar's silence about the precise nature of the PS2 version of GTA: Vice City Stories.
Contradictory to what other websites have been claiming recently, the game will include no multiplayer modes whatsoever with the only improvements being a greater draw distance and enhanced "graphics" and performance.
It's sounding more and more like this is a game being made only for those without PSP's - if you can swallow the lack of multiplayer support the game will be yours for just £19.99 when it goes on sale in early March.
