Hello guys!

 

After years of searching, I have finally found launch version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City with this beautiful case, map/poster and Tourist Guide. 

My question is, if I am not mistaken, have there been also slightly different box, I think pinkish glowing, very similiar to this box of mine?

Is there anyone who got it and can share with me some photos? I can't find it anywhere. 

 

Thank you for your help and Merry Christmas.

Thanks guys, I was really happy when I found it, searching was really worth it. Other Vice City's I saw were some versions released later and a lot of them were also Xbox versions. Now I need to find some GTA Vice City Soundtrack box, saw some but I am not going to pay $600 for used one...

I have the soundtrack box, paid 3 dollars for it in the deal of a lifetime. Didn't realize how lucky I was to have found it until I saw what they went for on eBay, and those are generally in worse condition than mine :D

Thats pretty cool Andreaz! You are really lucky, I wish it was possible to order one from Rockstar Warehouse now.

Well, it's best to keep searching because eventually (as you probably found out with the Launch Box) one will appear somewhere and be affordable so you can buy it,  Good Luck :^:

Thanks GTAKid, For me problem is that I am from smaller country in Europe and there aren't many Soundtrack Boxes, I have found 2 complete boxes, one was for $500 and other one for $600 and then some individual CD's for some ridiculous amounts so it won't be easy. I know I can use e-bay or amazon, I think there was one for $40 but I would have to pay another $50 or so for transport.

$500 and $600 is a ridiculous amount to pay for Soundtrack Boxes, I mean they might be rare but it's a bit extreme to charge that much.

 

If you do struggle to find one though and that $40 one is still available, it might be best to get that one, for the extra $50 it still doesn't come to as much money as the others (but at the same time is expensive).

Yep, that price is bad joke, I wouldn't be surprised if it was fake offer...

 

Unfortunately, it's gone by now. There is now one for $20 but he shipps just to US.

Shame, hopefully you'll find what you are looking for soon, it can't take too long, can it?

 

How long did you spend looking for the launch box?

Actually, I am looking for both Launch Box and Soundtrack Box same time, it is more than 5 years. I am afraid it will take another 5 years to find that Soundtrack. But whatever, I got that launch box so I am happy now. 

 

Back to my original question, do anyone know if there was some different version of Launch Box? I dont know why, but I think my friend had little bit different one. Parts that are black on mine were I think shiny pink if I am not mistaken. Do anyone know, have some photo or anything?

Thank you Masny for your help. It is really strange but I can't find it here, maybe it doesn't exist... Truth is I haven't found any Special/Collectors Edition of Vice City yet.

I can't find anything about this, so, probably it doesn't exist.

I've got the original case, map, & manual for both III and VC. Hell, I've even got two copies of them, and I play the newer one as not to damage the originals

That's cool universetwisters, I would like to find more too. The best would be some unopened case, would be really happy to find one but chance to find it is very small.

I still have all my cases-- I am very proud of the fact that my Vice City disk for PS2 purchased 11 years ago is in "perfect" condition... not a scratch or a mark on it-- ditto for all my games-- I don't let my kids touch them.
