Hi Guys,

Just a heads-up to all you Aussies/Kiwis on this forum. I was lucky enough to get the world's first play session with the upcoming GTA title, Vice City Stories. The latest issue of my mag, Australian GamePro, has a huge feature in it about my experience and includes an interview with RockStar about the series. The mag goes on sale tomorrow (Wed 2nd Aug) so check out www.gamepro.com.au for more info and get into it!

Cheers,

Chris Stead

Didn't Gamepro do one of the major San Andreas previews? I have it somewhere but I can't remember what mag it was.

Chris, please say that any Vance wont return as in the leading role. The game will be a failure if you are about to play a character who will die in the sequel.

Here's what I typed up for my website:


The first details for GTA: Vice City Stories are just coming out now. Stay tuned as I update this news post.

Update 1: GamePro magazine in Australia says the following about the new issue:

Does "The Brothers Vance" refer to Lance and his brother (who was dead during Grand Theft Auto: Vice City)? If so, this game will take place pre-1986, and too not much before either. We are looking at VCS having a 1980's theme, as expected!

Update 2: On the magazine cover, it says that there will be an article, or possibly an interview entitled GTA IV: Fact or Fiction. Stay tuned for more!

@ GTA3Freak-2001: The biggest preview for SA came from Game Informer who had the very first preview of it.

The Game Informer issue was the one that was released at E3 2004 and was the first one, no doubt. It didn't come out in stores for a few days after that, but I think it was the first.

However, that's a thing of the past. GamePro Australia is now the most awesome mag on the face of the planet tounge.gif

Yea I remember Game Informer had the first preview in June 04, then all the others came in July/August.

I was thinking, could "The Brothers Vance possibly mean that will can play as 2 characters?

Quick note - as stoked as I am to have all of you waiting on scans confused.gif - I have just been informed that the mag will be with subs today and on newsstands tomorrow. Sorry, I know that was a lame stuff up but hopefully I caught anyone planning on heading off to the newsagent in time: tomorrow is a better option.

Also, I am unable to answer any questions, all the information I know is in the article and I am sure you'll find the facts you need hitting these forums soon enough.

Seems pretty pointless seeing as that info will be out in a few hours anyway. If this mags release was weeks away then you could understand, but when it's just hours, I don't see why they've removed it.

There must be some reason, maybe it gave away to much information. Dunno. confused.gif Anyway, i'm gonna go and see just incase it is out today, you never know you luck smile.gif .
