Below are two articles from previous Gamesmaster magazines, although all information has been known for a while or confirmed upon, I wanted to keep track of any articles from English games magazines.

Next Grand Theft Auto revealed!
Some recent Rockstar wrangling at the US patent Office has inadvertently revealed the next Grand Theft Auto game could be...drumroll...Vice City Stories on PSP!
Ok, ok - we know what you lot are really holding out for is next-gen Grand Theft Auto on PS3, but just imagine it for a mo - the best city in the GTA universe, tweaked for PSP and filled with exciting new rides to steal, AK-47s to fire and comic book villains to blow away. We might even get to pilot choppers! What's not to like? Fingers crossed this one will make it out by Christmas-time.
|From Issue 174 (July) Gamesmaster|
You know what, we broke this bad boy last issue and now the rest of the world are only just catching up. We lapped up Liberty City Stories on PSP, so it was only a matter of time before Rockstar revisited perhaps their most loved metropolis of sin - Vice City itself - for some handheld lovin'. "An entirely new storyline, new missions and gameplay" are all on the menu.
I also did some scowering over the internet for any other snippets of news or information. According to Kotaku website the game has been given a suggested retail price of about $50 (roughly around £30).
Other websites claim Rockstar, along with the release of the boxart have actually confirmed the retail price at $49.99. Gamespot and Pro-G both have the same basic news, nothing further than speculation at this point.
GAME is always useful for the fans that are counting down the days. Each game on their site indicates how many remain, in VCS case 86 days!
Although the reliability of IMDB has been questioned before due to the fact that anyone can edit news posted there, nothing new has been added to the entry of VCS. Two previous voice actors/producers are listed but this is not confirmed.
