GTA Vice City Coming to iOS, Android Dec. 6

Rockstar's mobile port of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City in celebration of the game's tenth anniversary will be coming to iOS and Android in less than week on December 6, 2012. Both versions will be priced at $4.99.

According to the developer, the Vice City tenth anniversary edition will feature "updated character models and lighting effects, new and more precise firing and targeting options, a fully customizable control layout and native support for Retina display devices."

Rockstar's also listed the compatible devices list, which is included below:

"Apple iOS Devices: iPad, iPad mini, iPhone 4, 4S & 5, iPod touch 4th & 5th Generation

Android Phones: Motorola Razr, Razr Maxx, Razr Maxx HD, Motorola Atrix, Motorola Photon, Motorola Droid Bionic, HTC Rezound, HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Sensation, HTC Droid Incredible 2, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Note 1 & 2, Samsung S2, Samsung Galaxy R, Sony Xperia Play, Sony Xperia S, P, T & TL, Sony Walkman Z Series Media Player, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4

Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, LG Optimus Pad, Medion Lifetab, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 / 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P, Toshiba Thrive, HTC Flyer, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10."

Hopefully, Vice City's release on mobile platforms means that Rockstar and Take-Two have settled whatever musical licensing issues it has had with Sony. Rockstar was forced to remove Vice City from Steam over Michael Jackson's "Wanna Be Startin' Something." If this is indeed the case, we'll hopefully see Vice City restored to Steam in the next two weeks.

  • HOPEFULLY, the controls will be easier to manage and better one s if you connect a keyboard. I downloaded GTA III and was dissapointed with the controls on the screen, whomever does 100% of GTA with the screen controls.....he/she'll be my hero!
  • Glad to see that tegra 2 tablets are supported and also the SGS III. Looks like my Thrive is still compatible after a 1+ years that I bought it. (Took a while to get ICS).
  • Saw galaxy note. Yes!
