Why was VCS removed from the PSN store and will it come back?

I was looking forward to finally playing it on PS3 but its not there anymore.

Do we know why? And has something like this happened before?

There are rumors of it being rereleased on PS4 along with LCS & probably due to copyright expiration .

I agree & i actually saw something on the ESRB rating site too of both LCS & VCS for PS4 , but for some reason i went & checked the site again & they were gone

 

I know it wasn't deleted off the store too long ago because i was looking at the game for the Vita & the PS3 about 6 months ago & they were on there

That sounds worrying.

 

Damm, I should have downloaded it back then.

Is already rated by the ESRB for the PS4, so is obvious that R* is removing songs and making changes for both games. After that, they will release it on PS4 and the re-release for the PS3 will happen, just like SA two years ago.

If you know about the same thing with SA two year's, how long did it take for them to rerelease it?

 

I've been waiting for it to be released on PS4 since September when the ESRB rating was announced

If I remember correctly it took a few months to got out in the PS4 with some tracks from the soundtrack removed, while for the PS3 the "remastered" version got released with the same changes as the PS4 version. Despite that the PS4 version got the same changes as Mobile version so, X360/PS3 = Mobile changes = PS4 release using the PS2 version with Mobile version changes.

because AFAIK and from personal experience owning the PSN store version on PS3 myself.

The game would crash at random times (black screen), just like how Liberty City Stories lags on the PS3, this was a trash port and it underperforms.

Removing it is smart because you would just be wasting your money and Rockstar were too lazy to ever touch up these ports.

But this game is still available for PSP and PS Vita. I have just checked now.

Yeah that's the PSP version, not the console port. Two completely seperate things.

It completely went over my head that the then sony-exclusive LCS has been available for phones for about three years now, and I do hope a mobile version of VCS will come aswell. I'd like to play it again without using an emulator, or playing it with less than 20 fps on my 12 year old PSP.

I remember there being both vice city story’s and liberty city story’s on PS3. And now they took it out recently. It might maybe come back on newer consoles such as the PS4, and other stuf. Also they should make a mobile vice city story’s  because there’s a mobile liberty city story’s.

The PS Vita collection is still being sold but idk if it contains VCS. As for the PS2 Classic version, it'll probably wont be available ever again.

The news actually is very old, ESRB rated LCS and VCS (plus Max Payne 2 and Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition) for PS4 back in September/October 2017 but in a few days they completely deleted these 4 games from their site.

My guess is they had some issues with music licences in VCS, LCS already received its "10th Anniversary treatment" so it wouldn't have had this problem... So the question is: why did they not release LCS on PS4 if there were no issues?

Like totally It sucks that They will not spend their chump change or petty cash to buy and renew copyright thingies to keep all the songs and Soundtracks/RadioStations one of their best video game Franchises Such As Grand Theft Auto I mean Rockstar Games Incorported has alot of money and Copyright Rights to music and songs probably do not cost that much and to them its probably a few dollars to them versus somebody who does not make much money or somebody who can barely make enough money with minimum wage They Are a multibillion Dollar company They should totally renew their licenses especially since alot of people and almost everybody who once played these games probably still plays them from time to time and I cycle through all the Grand Theft Auto Games I Have and play all of them still today. People love Grand Theft Auto and The Music is one of the great things Within the Grand Theft Auto games.🙄

Sucks they probably won't come to PS4. I would have played the crap out of Midnight Club 3 and VSC. Honestly got my money's worth again replaying Rockstar's PS2 classics that were available.

Music dat sh*t costs money to license.

All the money Rockstar generates from GTA Online makes those music licences look like chump change. They just can't be assed to because the expense doesn't outweigh the potential profit.

Wow, I just bought LCS on my PS Vita and went to buy VCS, only to find out it wasn't there. Apparently, it's only available in a bundle with LCS and Chinatown Wars, which I ALREADY own.

 

Gee, thanks alot Sony and Rockstar. F*cking pricks.

It’s such a damn shame that VCS isn’t being released on PS4 anymore. That’s my favorite GTA game, and these days it’s one of the least accessible.

Well VCS is only 3D GTA, that I never played but I want the most.

 

Is kinda sad, that I listen to VCS radios regularly and I know that these songs are main problem why rockstar put this game to sleep.

 

Rockstar is very greedy, somewhat beyond my expectations.
