That's right, there will not be a PS2 version of VCS coming out. This time VCS will remain a PSP exclusive only.

Everyweek i download the "1up yours Podcast" hosted by the people at 1up, I was listening when it was stated by one of the hosts who had been to visit R* and play VCS that he was told by R* it will be VCS exclusive only, and No PS2 Version will be released

I have uploaded the clip when he says it, and it's available in the link below. In the skit he first talks about Bully and then moves onto Vice City Stories.

Putfile Link


Notice how the guy explains that the reason for the port not happening is becuase VCS will be running off more specified PSP teechnology, which will be based more soley on the portable experience.

The 1up yours podcasts broadcasts everweek on a friday afternoon US time and is available from iTunes and 1up.com

This does seem a bit premature of Rockstar to say this. Sure they are saying that the game is more suited to the PSP and designed for it too but what if the sales (as expected) go through the roof and demand for the PS2 version is just as high?

I just think it would have been better to see how it does for the PSP which its owners would have for at least a year before a potential console port was made and see if they felt they could increase sales with the same move as LCS.

But I dont want to buy a psp just for this game. Im soo disappointed. But if the only reason there not porting it because the ps2 lacks some abilities the psp has. cant they just port it to PS3 which will have those capabilities. They said No PS2 Port remember. Nothing about PS3.

P.S. It would be a sh*t poor PS3 game but who cares... its GTA

Porting a game to PS3 taht coudl of have run on a PS2 back in 2002 isn't a good idea now is it, whats that going to make people think of the PS3? So I geuss they get more out of the game by desinging it stricktly for the PSP. They could probly alter it somewhat and be able to make a PS2 version. It really carn't be that hard.

Anyhow I totally agree with this.

You know this really pisses me off at rockstar. Theyve shown their not afraid to port onto the ps2 system from PSP with LCS. But what about Hardcore GTA Fans (Me) That have been with them since the begining that cant afford a $350 dollar PSP because their saving for a PS3 thats coming later this year. It f*cking sh*ts me

Oh nooo.....

I don't belliieeve it....

If the next PSP GTA (probably S.A. Stories) doesn't come out for PS2 too, I'll go insane.

Hopefully this is all a joke (the guy could be crapping), cos I don't want to believe it's true.

I think it's good news, they promised LCS to be PSP only but it wasn't, and I think that people should accept it, it's like moaning that halo was never on PS2 etc, you can't change it, just accept it

The game is designed to be portable, and it should stay that way, if you don't have a psp, then it is just tough luck, you will have to miss out, it's not like you are losing GTA 4, it's only a small game on an old island. It isn't vital to survive in the gaming world

If you aren't prepared to buy a PSP for a GTA game then you aren't a hardcore fan.

I knew there was going to be GTA on PSP, so i bought one. Then the brought out Liberty City Stories fro PSP, i was happy as. Then the "PSP Exclusive" came out on PS2 for £20.

I hope to god it does just stay on PSP, if your so bothered about it not coming to PC or PS2, get a f*cking PSP ffs.

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\ precisely, if you want it that badly, get a psp, I was so pissed off when I learned that an identical game to the one I bought was coming out for half the price for the cheapos who didn't buy the psp version, and those who complain that games don't come out on PC, if you are a GTA fan, you would have a console to play it on, the thing the game was designed to work on, not some jumpy, glitchy, freezing pile of junk designed to add up numbers

Well, usually I'd just think of this as speculation masquerading as official info, but it seems they are right.


Now if you don't mind, I'm gonna go stroke my PSP, talk sweet to it, and uh, you know, personal stuff.

As said above, they said this about LCS. So, I certainly don't think that this is much of a confirmation.

did you buy a gba for gta:a? if not, you're not a hardcore fan. if you did, I'm really sorry for your loss

anyway LCS was a psp exclusive, gta3, vc, and sa were ps2 exclusives, and gta4 was an xbox360 exclusive for about ten minutes
don't take too much stock in R*'s claims of exclusivity
not only are they a business, but they are part of a large, public company with relatively frequent financial difficulties
they will cash in on their flagship franchise as much as possible, if need be (ie, when the shareholders clamour for it)

I don't have problems with it if it would only appear on the PSP cause I have the PSP and no PS2. To bad for PS2 users who don't want to buy a PSP tounge.gif.

Thank you very very much. That pretty much answers your questions. R* needs money just like any other business and with GTA selling everytime it gets released they will want to make as much profit from it as possible. LCS was a very big seller on both the PSP and the PS2. Why want to lose those profits?

I heard that podccast too and i have no doubts about John Davison's (the 1up editor) statement. But money can change people's minds. The thought of how much more profit the game will take in if it comes out on PS2 can be quite convincing. I'm not saying rockstar is lying, but they can change their minds.

you've never heard of 1up?
wow...


but R* even said in a lcs preview that LCS was only done as an example, and demonstration to ps2 owners of what the psp could do, and to get people familiar with the gta series at a bargain price.

selling the game at $20 won't get them much profit, and if they constantly port to the ps2 then what the hell is the point in having it "psp exclusive" or even bothering wth the psp at all?

It's all for the money dude. Sure 20 bucks isn't a lot, but when you have Earth + ps2 users + GTA Fans = $$$$$

Yes.. i was hopeing this to come true..

Anyone who doesnt have one..... im sure if you start saveing you can get one before christmas.. and hopefully get VCS for christmas? Good plan?

There is some other sweet games coming out.. Metal Gear Portable Ops is a Plus in my book.. Mainly because it features Big Boss.. not Solid Snake icon14.gif
