Are LC and VC stories ever coming to PS4?


Recommended Posts

There were rumors of them getting an ESRB rating quite a while back. 10 months ago or so? But since then it has been silent. 

 

Any insight as to why it hasn't happened yet? 

 

Sony has done a piss poor job of bringing PS2 titles to PS4 though.

I doubt it. R* doesn't really care about Liberty City and Vice City Stories. They're too focused on RDR 2 and GTAO.

As nice as it would be to see the stories games on the PS4, I doubt it's gonna happen. LCS on mobile did not sell well at all (nor did most of the mobile releases of the III-era GTA titles), and VCS has so many songs that would need to either be re-licensed or outright cut from the game since they're probably even more expensive to license nowadays (which is what happened with VC and SA, and then IV recently without even needing to be re-released). Rockstar probably doesn't think it's worth paying the licensing fees if it's gonna follow the same pattern of not making their sales expectations.

Those games were listed and rated by the ESRB last year, sadly (and mysteriously) is taking it so long to arrive to PS4. Has been more a year and people still waiting for them.

 

EDIT:

Even all other titles announced to arrive to the PS4 as Midnight Club 3: Dub Edition Remix still there... missing from the PS4 emulation/backward compatibilty as well.

Actually I don't understand why Rockstar doesn't want to release these games on PS4. Do you know that, at least in theory, the PS4 is completely backwards compatible with PS2 games? Soft-modded PS4s could run any PS2 backup in the .pkg format (of course these backups are leagl only if you own the original disc)!

They'd have just to add some trophies and modify a little bit the original PS2 version (they can't release just the unmodified version, some changes must be done in the code), it shouldn't be that hard for a big company like Rockstar.

Anyway if ESRB rated all these games on PS4 there will be a reason, unless they like to rate random stuff.

I've only played LCS on my PSP and it has been a terrible experience, but I'd like to play both LCS and VCS on my PS4... Just like GTA III/VC/SA that I've completed at 100% (+ Platinum trophy).

Unfortunately, this'll probably never happen. On the double negative side, they'll probably never be available for any Xbox console, which is a huge bummer as both games seem to be up my alley as they're both about mobsters and take place on the east coast. Same goes for CTW.

Having the Stories games on PC legitimately, without emulations or total conversions, would make me very happy even if cutting music is required. Modding could fix that. This would definitely revive my love for this series, which has been rather muted ever since I last played V like three years ago. Haven't played them in like a decade, back when my brother's PS2 was still alive.

 Doubt it at this point which is a shame, GTA VCS has always been underrated

No GTA game is bad, but if I had to choose, it would be VCS. That game kinda sucked. LCS was also the same. No character development or lack of character development that is.  Not worth their time to port over to the ps4.

I was thinking of getting this the other day on my PS3, as I enjoyed playing it on the PS2, only to discover that it was no longer there. Ah, well. I guess I could always go back and play it on the PS2.

Yeah no way is it getting one now, I heard that it was because of  the music licenses that ran out and Rockstar doesn't want to pay people again. But who knows. Its a shame though
