Available now on iOS devices, the 2002 PS2 classic will be avilable for a cheap price of $4.99. As Rockstar's follow-up title to GTA 3, the franchise has never fell away from it's mature content and we'll be sure to see that next year with the newest title GTA V being due out in the second fiscal quarter. Featuring updated textures & resolutions, GTA: Vice City on iOS devices looks to be the next big title that fans have been asking for.
Closer to the anniversary on the 28th of Octber, Vice City and San Andreas were rated for the PS3 & PC versions. With the HD remodelling of the game, I expected that we might have heard something about a port coming to the PS3 as it's been rumored to come to PSN all year long. On November 21st, Rockstar announced Vice City would be coming to iOS & Android devices yet this press release clearly states that it's only coming to mobile Apple products. We'll let you all know when it comes to Android!
