It should anyway, just like Liberty City Stories came out from the PSP on the PS2, however it would take about a year after the PSP release date.

I seriously doubt it, rockstar are moving on to next generation consoles, and I wouldn't be surprised if they never release anything again on the Xbox and ps2.

You've got a point there however Rockstar wouldn't expect everyone to ditch their own ps2 and buy the ps3 in 2 years?

Why else would you think that some games are still on the XBOX and XBOX 360

They will want to release it to a wider audience when the PSP sales die down. They can't make it a PS3 game because the quality doesn't cut it. They will either release it for PS2 (at a discount price, say half of what a PS3 game would cost) because the PS3 will be backwards compatible with PS2 games, or they will release it for PC.

I agree with "SMG" also again I've said this in another topic, that the pc specs would be high for the graphics card and scince the mojority of new games take "Direct X9.0c" and that would mean that minimum graphics card needed would probaby be FX5200 as Gforce 4 or lower can only support up to "Direct X9.0b"

That's exactly what I'm thinking. By the time LCS is released on PS2 Rockstar will have moved onto high performance machines like the Xbox360 and PS3. Eventually PS2 (and Xbox sooner or later) will be what the PSone is now and ages and ages away, would be treated like the Sega Megadrive etc. So, yeah, I doubt it.

Well, now I read through the topic carefully, pretty much. I just skimmed through the posts and didn't really see what everyone else had posted.

the thing I'm thinking about is how Kaz Hirai there said that PS2 has another 10 years of support. R* knows that millions of people buy GTA games, It's worth porting for a few hundred thousand sold. Plus, I think people that can't afford a PS3 but who play GTA (tons and tons of teenagers) will be sticking with the PS2 after the PS3 is out.

Making it for PS2 instead of just PS3 would mean more people buying it because of the ps3's ability to play ps2 games. PS2+PS3 owners is > PS3 owners.

I think developers kept making games for the psOne for quite a long time after the PS2 was around.

It would be nice if they release it for PC instead of PS2 or PS3 because I like the PC platform better than either. I love the PC gaming platform now that I finally know how to upgrade the components.

Exactly what I was thinking. Rockstar wants to make as much money as possible with doing the least amount of work to the port, as we can already tell with LCS, but they have every right to.

2 days till LCS release over here in US.

Any console version of GTA:VCS will be for PS2 not PS3. The VC platform is designed for PS2. Why would they go to all the work of porting it to PS3 to limit the audience to a fraction of what the PS2 has? In the first year or two, anything that doesn't need the power of the PS3 is going to be made for the PS2 still.

Yeah, and looking at the time gaps of LCS for ps2 and with VCS and all, it would be PS2.

i dont really want the vcs to be ported since if right now when i went to ign it said "lcs could not raise that much ateention due to its lack of multiplayer and graphics. also because of the games that are out for ps2 right now are way better than lcs"(or something like that). Also by that time ill have it for psp and ps3 is gonna be out and probably gonna get that too along with the new gta. ps2 is probably gonna have releases of ps3 games with lower graphics and fps(or at least some games). yea

i think it would be a waste because they are not going to add a lot to the ps2 version like with lcs all they added wes a little better grafics and i dont think it would cool of rockstar to do it just for profit

If they do release Vice City Stories on a console, I just don't think they would release it on the ps2 when the PS3 is in the full swing. angry.gif I still think LCS was the last gta we get on ps2.

But if they release it for PS3, PS2 owners can't play, therefore they lose money.

Of course they will release it on the PS2, there is so much money to make with all the PS2 owners. Just like LCS, it will come out on the PS2, and eventually make its way to the Xbox, PC, etc.

I think some people may be over estimating the PS3...I don't plan on buying one right away, the first games to come out on consoles always suck and it usually takes a year or two to get things crackin. I will probably stick with my PS2 until GTA4 comes out, which probably won't be for a year or so after the PS3 launches. I think a lot of people will be stickin with their PS2s. There is no way that Sony and the other developers would ignore such a huge fanbase. In the end, its all about the money...

I agree with everyone who says it's going to be out on PS2. Rockstar will make more sales from it because it will be available to more people, and it shames the new PS3's capabilities. All that really needs to be looked at is how long it will take to get it out on PS2. If the LCS sale on PS2 are good, then they will probably release it earlier. The only problem with that is people won't by the PSP version because it's a total rip-off compared to the console price. Who the hell wants to pay $20 more for an ok game you can carry around on a bulky PSP that's likely to get stolen. Seriously most people who take their PSP's outside get it either messed up or stolen, and if you're playing the same game at home, wouldn't you want it on a bigger screen for less money?
