Can't play this on PS2 and the mouse doesn't work on PC version when using Windows 7 so this is great. It's been a while since I played VC so I definely download this and play it while waiting V.

Regarding your mouse not working---

It works for most people...

^if you own this game on ps2 then there is no reason to buy it since it will be direct ps2 port with no changes. smile.gif

Unless you want to play it on your PS3.

The nice thing is now, when I want to replay any of the old games, I can now just buy it off PSN and play it on my PS3 instead of having to dig out the PS2 like I did last April for Vice City. And I'm quite sure I will want to play San Andreas sometime this summer after I get through GTAV.

Vice City is my second favorite GTA game (After IV) and I am delighted to see it on PSN. Whilst I started on the series with PSone GTA, Vice City was the first one of the 3D GTA's that I played and loved. As good as the 2D GTAs were and still are, when GTA went 3D, I think that's when it was cemented as one of gaming greatest franchises.

Love the setting, love the comedy, (funniest in the series imo, I could listen to VCPR all day). SA is probably the better PS2 era game and I love it, but VC will have the edge purely down to personal reasons.

Plus the film Scarface is awesome.

I wonder if we'll get the music missing from the PC/iOS port. Maybe Sony Music would have been more flexible considering VC on the PSN will do nothing but help Sony on a whole but we'll see. I'm sure there's a whole lot of complex issues to have been solved or not.

It won't. You will have to start a new game, but no problem since I'm already 75% on GTA SA.

Thanks. I have to try that. icon14.gif
Though I will still downloading it from PSN once it's released because it's way more confortable to play it with Dualshock while sitting on couch - and it's more nostalgic that way.

Stay tuned for more classic Rockstar titles coming for download to PSN in the weeks and months ahead


I assume VCS will be next..

I hope for VCS and LCS on PC.
I mean come one, nearly 10 years passed, release it for PC.

Anyway, I hope they post something interesting like the posted GTA SA's Introduction.

Any reason why it won't?

Because it is a port of the ps2 version.... It isn't the ps2 version.

I personally wouldn't have said that it is incompatible (because i obviously don't know for sure) however there are already 3 different ps2 versions that are not compatible with one another, so the odds of it being compatible with the ps3 version are pretty low.

Well its not a port but the ps2 game running off an emulator. But your other points hold true.

Cool can't wait. Besides the top-down GTAs, VC is the only GTA I haven't played. I had it when I was very little, got stuck on one of the first missions (involved a golf cart chase), lost it, and never found it since.

Now's my chance to finally see what I've been missing al these years...

Thanks! Yeah quite a few people on GTAF prefer VC as their favourite GTA, so I have no doubt it'll be awesome! xmas.gif


I'll be playing it all day tomorrow... I'll come back and give my 2 cents on it then! smile.gif icon14.gif

Well that blows. I just 100% the game last year on my PS2 and I do not want to have to start over from scratch (save data wise).

Vice City is in the UK, I assume for the rest of Europe too - not immediately obvious - it's not on the front pages, go to latest games for this week, it's in alphabetic order.

Vice City Now Available on PSN

user posted image

QUOTE
Today, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has officially joined the other two iconic chapters of the Grand Theft Auto trilogy in the PlayStation Store.
Available as part of the PS2 Classics collection ($9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99), Vice City is the story of Tommy Vercetti’s rise to the top of the criminal underworld that pushed the open world game series deeper into popular culture with its vibrant over-the-top take on Miami, stunning celebrity voice cast and loving, satirical look at the cultural excesses of the ‘80s.

Stay tuned for future announcements on additional Rockstar titles being added to the PS2 Classics collection very soon.

Michael Jackson's are seemingly cut (Billie Jean is no longer the first song to played) can't say for the rest, but an educated guess could assume that it's similar or the same as the 10y an edition.

Shame, but it's not a deal breaker.
