SPOnG has heard a bizarre rumour of late that Rockstar
may be looking to bring the next iteration of the Grand Theft Auto series – presumably entitled GTA 5
– to Nintendo’s family friendly Wii console.
However, what ISN’T a rumour anymore, and what we all actually knew to be happening anyway, is that the PSP game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
is coming to the PlayStation 2 sometime very soon, which follows yesterday’s Manhunt 2 announcement
from the videogame trendmeisters at Rockstar.Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
is set to hit North America on March 6 and Europe on March 9. SPOnG’s just called Rockstar
to confirm pricing, so we should have those details for you shortly. Suffice to say, we don’t expect it will be a full price title; most likely it'll be £19.99, if past PSP-to-PS2 ports from R* are anything to go by.
The Rockstar Leeds
developed PS2 port will feature the same storyline and missions found in the PSP original, set two years prior to the original Vice City
and starring Vic Vance, the brother of Vice City's Lance Vance.
The ‘hilarious’ Grand Theft 5
on Wii rumour is said to have started ‘somewhere on the internet’ and the source remains both anonymous and unknown. So basically, you can choose to believe it if you really want to. Though if you do, then you are an idiot.
SPOnG put it to a Rockstar
rep the other day that we’d heard GTA 5
might be Wii-bound and they responded with what we can only describe as a stifled giggle. Read into that what you will.
Don't forget that GTA4
is due to drop on Xbox 360
this coming October. Like you really would forget that!
