GTA VC 10th Anniversary deleted songs

Recommended Posts

Nikined

Some songs were deleted from the mobile version due to Rockstar's greed copyright reasons. There is a list of them, you might have seen it:

Michael Jackson -"Billie Jean"

Michael Jackson -"Wanna Be Startin' Somethin"

Ozzy Osbourne -"Bark At The Moon"

Kate Bush -"Wow"

Herbie Hancock - "Rock It"

Afrika Bambaataa -"Looking For The Perfect Beat"

Lionel Richie - "Running with the night" (was on PS2 only)

I've found out that "The Smurf" by Tyrone Brunson is also missing on the mobile version.

I don't quite understand the aim of this topic considering that we all know which songs Rockstar removed 7 years ago! Actually in 2012 Vice City couldn't be purchased on Steam for a month I think due to "Billie Jean" still in the game.

For once I'll defend Rockstar... Copyright licences cost a ton of money (especially for '70 and '80 songs) and renew them for a 10-years-old game doesn't make any sense whatsoever. For me Rockstar did their best for not destroying the vibe of old GTAs, for GTA IV and EFLC they spent some cash for not killing Vladivostock FM.

BTW on PC you can always downgrade the game to the 1.0 version and you're good to go with the original soundtrack.

I think you don't, cause no one in those seven years seems to have written about "The Smurf" by Tyrone Brunson.

Well, they made lots of money on the mobile versions, so they definitely could have shelled out for keeping more atmosphere.

Of course this problem doesn't stand on PC, I wrote about the mobile version

Well sorry, I didn't understand that you just wanted to point out that "The Smurf" is missing from the mobile versions, I thought you wanted to let us know, after 7 years, which songs Rockstar removed. You're right, "The Smurf" wasn't really considered in the removed songs list, actually only GTA Fandom seems to have noticed it: https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Radio_Stations_in_GTA_Vice_City

I wouldn't be so sure about sales on mobile platforms, Vice City Stories is still waiting its 10th Anniversary treatment that won't probably ever come. GTA on mobile, for me, is a bit a fiasco, not a lot of people want to spend 10€/10$ on a mobile game that needs at least 2GB of free space; also not everyone likes the control scheme (including me) of a complex game like a GTA, IMO for all these reasons every mobile port they made didn't sell so much. And even if Vice City sold more than 1.000.000 copies, the cost wouldn't be justified either, a song like "Billie Jean" after Michael Jackson's death is probably worth millions and millions of dollars.

I wouldn't agree, as far as I remember GTA games were in top apps in App Store, VC and III cost 5 dollars, and the controls weren't much worse than the gamepad, even had their advantages such as tap aiming. So they are not failures. And if they were, Rockstar wouldn't have released a mobile game after game (not speaking about LCS).
