The Mysterious One

Those who have the original PS2 version.

The Mysterious One

By "original," I mean the one with the black label and the not-so-friendly content towards Haitians. Are you glad you kept it? I will say that despite buying this game for the PS4, I still have the original PS2 version, which not only has the original content involving the Cuban/Haitian storyline, but also all of the songs, including "Running With The Night." Also, is this version rare? Not that I've been looking online for it because I don't need to, but it seems that I see at some local mom-and-pop game stores, I find the Greatest Hits version or the Double-Pack version of this game. What do you think?

I wish I still had the original 2002 version. I regretfully lend it to someone years back, never returned.

 

Don't know where to get the original.

Proud owner of the original PS2 version here, and I wouldn't have it any other way. I could kind of understand the outrage regarding the Haitian/Cuban stuff. In the end though, you're dealing with a game where violence, sex, foul language and drugs are the norm anyway. Also shame about 'Running with the Night' being axed, one of my favourite songs on Flash FM personally.

 

I guess one way to be sure you're getting the unedited PS2 version is to just look on eBay for a copy with the original box-art, which of course has none of that ugly Platinum/Greatest Hits sh*te plastered around it.

GTA Vice City for PS2 the original release isn't rare nor difficult to find. It's practically worthless in terms to value due to it's insane amount of sales. A copy used even in near perfect condition is worth less than $10.00 and a sealed ORIGINAL copy can be a bit tough to find....but typically sells around $50-$60.

 

I have my original copy with sales receipt which I have already posted pics around the board. I still prefer the Xbox version.

No, but some of Umberto's dialogue was changed because it was considered to be offensive against Haitians and there were complaints from Haitian American groups about it.

 

Basically, according to the book Jacked by David Kushner, the controversey began after a local newscaster in New York noticed that the game ordered you to kill Haitians in one of the missions and he ran a story about it. Soon, the Haitian community complained and Rockstar made the changes to later versions released. I'm pretty sure dialogue in another mission was changed as well. I think part of the problem stemmed from them never giving these gangs names other than "Cubans" and "Haitians." It set things up to be pretty awkward later on in the game when you start doing their missions.

Australian v1.0 had a unique OFLC tag with "MA restricted". I haven't seen this design on anything else.

IIRC all the 3D era GTA games had that rating symbol, I didn't see it on any other game case though.
