In 2016, what would you like to see Rockstar give us on VCS 10-year anniversary?

I would personally love to see a PC release. I seriously doubt it will happen, but I would love for it to. Many people have wanted LCS and VCS on PC for a long time.

I'd prefer a Mobile release on iOS/Android, considering III, VC, SA, and CTW are on iOS/Android.  Furthermore, I own LCS and VCS for PS2/3, anyways...

I wished it happened, especially with a PC Release.

This topic is so active, okay, actually not. However I hope so that R* (or an another developer) a mobile port makes.. Eventually a (better)

PC-port.

Hoping the POSSIBLE port will not be crappy as III, VC and SA mobile, X360 and the new-brand PS3 version.

 

The same thing for the possible port for LCS too.

Heh...I highly doubt this. Considering the fact that R* didn't give any crap about LCS's birthday what makes you think there going to celebrate VCS's birthday?

Won't ever be ported, unless Liberty City Stories is released with it or before it, and proves to be profitable.

 

Don't expect anything decent though. They won't even fix the unusable garages.

It would be pretty awesome if this game was ported to PC and all of its outstanding glitches were fixed, such as the aforementioned garages, the slow boats, broken melee combat, general lag in areas like the Fairground, and many more that I've forgotten over the years. However, I seriously doubt that will happen, given the problems all other GTA games on PC have (III, VC and SA only playing properly at 25 FPS, IV using the now-defunct GFWL and having bad performance).

 

It's a shame, given that this game has an excellent soundtrack, some pretty good graphics (the PSP version at least), and overall provides a lot of good memories (for me at least).

Already was fixed with the PS2 Version.  My Garages are perfect.  I have 4 Special Vehicles inside each Garage and 3 Saves in total giving me 36 Special Vehicles for VCS across 3 100% Saves (Just like 6 Saves in LCS with 72 Special Vehicles).  I know you aren't into collecting, but I can assure you that VCS has no Garage Problem.  This was fixed for PS2 and only is on the PSP.  If they port it to Mobile, I kinda feel like they would use the PS2 Version, including LCS.  IF, they used the PSP Version of LCS for Android/iOS, though, I'd actually be quite happy since that is the better Version in regards to LCS.  But for VCS, the PS2 Version is perfect and everything from PSP, especially the Garage problem has been fixed since 2006...

WE WANT A GODDAMNED PC PORT! Or a PS4 port, as long as it's not on Xbox One, because we all know that the XONE is not actually a console.

Garages still do not repair destroyed vehicles in the PS2 version, however. That is something that should be fixed in a hypothetical port. There are some other differences between the versions as well. The PSP version has subjectively more realistic sunsets and color correction. The hands/fingers on the characters are detailed in the cutscenes on PSP; in the PS2 version, they go back to the blocky look of previous games. The PS2 version has a new sound and increased blood effects for the chainsaw as well, but it doesn't perform any better. The PSP version is the only one with multiplayer, while the PS2 has a few exclusive missions and rampages and such, as well as an ugly trails option.

I would really want a pc for both games. Just to see what cut content they had. Im more interested on that. I guess we should all lobby to get these two games to pc now that theres going to be a mobile version.

I played the heck out of both versions for years following their original release. When this website still kept track of what forum you had the most posts in, I had at least 1,000 in this VCS forum. From my recollection the graphics were definitely a downgrade on PS2. I can't test it at the moment as my PS2 is stored somewhere in my closet, unfortunately.

Since LCS was released for iOS and Google Play Store today and soon Android, I am hoping we see VCS in the near future, as well! :)

 

I like these Mobile Ports.  When VCS is released, I will have III, VC, SA, LCS, VCS, and CW all on my iPhone 6 and these are my favorite 6 GTA's in the Series, so having all 6 on iOS is gonna be cool.  III, VC, SA, and CW are finished to 100% and all, so now it's time for LCS and then VCS in the future once it's released! :)

I don't recall seeing any noticeable downgrade in LCS graphics on PS2. The higher resolution + texture filtering made it look quite good. That said, I haven't played it enough to come to a conclusion.

 

VCS however, looks fantastic on PS2. I was really impressed with what I saw.

They'll probably update the HUD icon and not actually add it in, they did that with the Phone, Jetpack and Skateboard icons with the 10th anniversary version of SA

Hmmm, Tomasak = War Drum Studios dev? Illuminati confirmed.

 

OT: I'm very sure War Drum Studios is already working on VCS, for sure.

Hope next years mobile port will have an intact soundtrack. It's also hard to believe that this game will be nearly a decade old. LCS turning ten was hard enough on me! :)

I'm in the minority that think Vice City circa 1984 looked better than the 1986 version. I loved the dark oranges and purples. The way colors popped on the PSP. So I also am hoping they don't go crazy with the graphical enhancements.

Probably they will remove best songs, as they did with some games.

Because they will not invert again on an old game.

While the city itself is something I have mixed feelings about(on which I like the most, I mean), I still consider the skies in VCS to be the most beautiful on the entire series(and I praise the s**t out of V whenever a sunset reminds me of VCS). I even install it as a mod for SA!

 

So... I'll have to agree with you on this one. It definitely looks better than the '86 rendition... If Rockstar remakes VC in the HD Universe, these skies need to be a thing!  :santa:
