Rockstar stays tight lipped as rumours start to circulate on this year's biggest PSP title.

Rockstar is planning to make it a direct squel to the ps2's vice city, with you playing as tommy vercetti now back at the top of the mob food chain, rockstar has so far refused to comment on the issue, but it would be an intresting roote to go down, as opposed to the slightly more predictable whole new character has to rise to the top.
At this point though, there is no show of Ray liotta returning to voice vercetti and no announcemnts regaring any other notable voice tallents.


Yeah, so discuss, and if you plan on flaming me, go buy the f*cking issue yourself!

It's PLAY issue 142, page 31 in the top right of the page.

Doubt it, highly.

If Rockstar relesed any information, it wouldn't be in a small article in a mag. It would be everywhere.

Well, the magazine says its a rumour. So that in itself means its probably not true, I mean they could have made it up themselves for all we know, just trying to say they have info for VCS.

Usually these kind of magazines claim to have spoken to someone working on the inside for Rockstar, other times it’s a little snippet of information that they expand upon. In this case it could be true or false, although Rockstar are denying it that may be just to keep it secret until media coverage is released.

Personally I like the sound of that for a game, Tommy is a great character and it would make a nice change being at the top for once. Like LCS I don’t think it mattered that they didn’t have the usual big name voices as they all did a great job and I expect the same for VCS.

But, what would you do? Usually the guys on top just give the missions, not do them themselves.

Well the forellis could come back and try to take tommys gang over and what not, ofcourse a little bit more complicated then that. It could definately work, I'd rather see it set after Vice City then before myself.

It would definitely be at least mentioned in magazines like OPS2 or PSM2

I also agree that you would have nothing to do as tommy, he already runs VC, so why woulkd there be a game about it, and I think it is more likely to be a prequel like in LCS

But how do you know there would be nothing to do? Give Rockstar some credit, if they can make 9 successful GTA games I think they could create some good scenarios in which Tommy has stuff to do in Vice City after 1986.

He is at the top of the ladder, there are a number of things he could be thinking of or doing during this time. War on the other Forellis, alliance or war with the Leones, his anger at Ken’s drug addiction, his relationship with Mercedes, etc.

War on the other Forellis,


Yes That could happen Sonny did get tommy in the slammer for 15 years and Sonny did try to take over tommys empire and try to kill him. Sonny even had tommys friend beaten up at the print works. Three wrongs dont make a right.

alliance or war with the Leones

An allience yes Tommy will despise the Forellis after what sony did but war with a gang hes never met no.

his anger at Ken’s drug addiction

Good thinking Tommy may have kicked ken out for doing drugs which tommy doesnt do.

his relationship with Mercedes, etc.

This might develop into a Vercetti Family storyline

Tommy owns a food chain? Does he own Burger Shot? wow.gif

Oh, I see what it means now. I hope hes in it, but I want him to be like salvatore (Boss of the main character). Hopefully he doesn't die like salvatore. tounge.gif

If a magazine can create a "rumor", and people actually discuss it, then I guess I will too. Here's one for you: Tommy's Gay.

But yeah, I think Tommy making an appearance in Vice City Stories would be great, like Fido/GTA 3 guy/Guy in green jacket did in San Andreas. It would be great if the main character in VCS is a younger guy this time round, and you end up doing one or two missions for Tommy.

Other than that R* would probably not make Tommy the main character, as they want the game to be "fresh" as far as possible. (As in they don't want it to look like a Vice City mod)

It sounds plausible.......for an idea or a guess at the plot that is. I doubt its true info from Rockstar's mouth but rather just a posisble outcome I guess.

I also doubt this very much, for all we know it could be set in the late 70's.

Adriaan one thing, Tommy isn't gay, don't you ever say that! Two, Maria calles him Fido, his name is Claude, and its a really cool black jacket, not a green one. Wait, how does Sonny throw Tommy in jail for 15 years if Tommy kills Sonny. Please explain, was he in jail before or after Vice City?

Pork: Sonny set Tommy up, he sent him to harwood (In Liberty) to do a mission for him, but it was really a hit on Tommy, and he killed 15 people, the cops came, sent him down for 15 year.


VCS with Tommy being the main character again would rock. If it is still set in the 80's, then there's bound to be stuff Tommy needs to do. Help the Haitans run the cubans out. Help the Biker gang, loads of stuff.

I don't think he'd have formed an Alliance with the Leones. If he did, why wasn't he involved in the Casino deal in San Andreas? Maybye a new gang has moved to Vice and tryed to over throw The Vercettis, or even the Forellis came down and tryed to sort him out. Who knows.

To bring Claude back wouldn’t really fit. In his brief appearances in San Andreas (1992) I’s say he was in his early 20’s, and going by the whole 4 year prequel that people assume Rockstar will adopt for every “stories” game they make VCS would be set in 1983, so Claude would be in his teens.

i have some feelings that after "Vice city story", there will be another "SA story" for PSP... think about it, R* use gta3, vc, sa to get money from ps2, xbox, pc before psp was released, but after psp release, they re-write LCS, VCS for PSP, only SA is left out, so maybe they are working on VCS and SAS at same time before GTA4 release... it just a guess...
