It’s been a couple months since Vice City was released on iOS and Android in its Anniversary edition, but while GTAIII and San Andreas are available on PSN, Vice City was still missing.
That’s all changing now, with news from Rockstar that the game will be available next week on the Store (Tuesday in the US, Wednesday in the UK/EU) for $9.99/€9.99/£7.99.
There’s no reason given by Rockstar for the delay, but previous rumblings suggested that there was some issues surrounding a Michael Jackson song on the game’s soundtrack. Whilst this could simply be removed and replaced in the mobile re-releases, it obviously wasn’t worth Rockstar opening up the old PS2 code to make adjustments. Presumably, with this release news, those issues have now been resolved – ie: Rockstar paid out.
There’s also a note in the announcement post that more classic Rockstar titles “will be arriving on PSN “in the weeks and months ahead”.
