Well, I believe that another GTA for the PSP has been confirmed. No-one knows for sure where it will be set. Vice City seems just as likely, if not more so than any where else.

I don't think there are any facts, but if you want to know some people's opinions then check out one of these:

I'm going to guess no. First of all, the reasons why they made an LCS in the first place: people love Liberty City. Even after SA in all its splendor, there are those that still swear by GTA3 being the best. It was the first and you simply cannot replicate the feeling it was to bridge the 3rd dimension of the keystone of its genre. Also, for two years now, dedicated fans have toiled to transport GTA3 into Vice's engine to take advantage of its improvements. Which from my experience with playing GTA:LC, is a vast improvement in most ways. I've even heard rumors of those that would put it into SA's engine. Finally, LCS from what I've heard has turned out to be a bit of a disappointment.

They tried to play on Liberty City's popularity and were met with a less than thunderous result. Therefore I don't think they'll be trying to revisit the other cities of GTA. Nor should they. VC (sorry to all the VC-lovers here) was flat and relatively bland. It would be a poor business move to try and revisit it. Besides, wouldn't you rather a fresh game in a fresh city?

Anyone can write stuff on there. I have.
I know I check my facts but you can't rely on everyone.

If LCS and it's sequels were released for the PC, PS2 and Xbox then I'd agree with you about it being a bad business move. However, I don't think it's likely that they will be released for the PC, PS2 and Xbox as they're officially labelled as PSP exclusives by Rockstar Games themselves.

In GTAIV, yes.

For the GTA games on PSP, I don't mind that they're basically mission packs as opposed to whole new games because they exist to expand upon the story of the GTAIII Trilogy (and they're portable).

i read in Januaries Games master (UK) (I'm supscriped) that there will be 2 new gta titles for psp. But that was under the rumour section.

I've just gotten onto the last mission in Vice City and in the starting cutscene he and sonny talk about him getting put in jail and the reason why, so i was thinking for the next psp title they could have Tommy V 15 years earlier in whatever city and the story would be leading up to his arrest. It was just a brief thought as i watched the cutscene though.

And and by the way i'm completely stuck on Keep your friends close... sad.gif

Rockstar stated that all new cities in the GTA franchise will only be on Next-gen.

So what is PSP classed as, next or this gen, if the latter they can only re-hash the old games, if the PSP is next-gen then we'll have a new city.

However, i beleive that PSP is current-gen, there fore the only new games coming out for the PSP are going to be re-hashes of previous cities. Due to San Andreas's size, i think it's safe to say it's either Vice City, or carcer city from GTA2, rehash in 3D?

I agree. San Andreas will probably have to be split up into three games, one set in each city unless Sony make a new UMD that has a larger storage capacity.

FYI, GTA2 was set in an unnamed futuristic metropolis referred to as "Anywhere City" not Manhunt's Carcer City. I don't think that we'll see Anywhere City being the setting of a GTA game on the PSP because remaking it in 3D would make it seem like a brand new city and not a rehash.
