GTA Vice City Coming to iOS, Android Dec. 6

By - Source: Destructoid | B 12 comments

Vice City will be coming to iOS and Android next week.

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).

    Has someone seen the Steelseries FREE wireless control, although expensive IMO I think it is perfect for a game like this, send out more games like it and I may feel tempted to buy the control

    Definitely going to get this as well as GTAIII when I finally get a tablet. Supposedly San Andreas will be getting a iOS/Android version for it's 10th anniversary as well, can't wait for that.

    Some amount of fake money says you'll not be able to pick up hookers in the iOS version.

    No TF Infinity mentioned :(  so the iPad gets retina but the full HD tablets don't get full HD, although the nexus 10 is on the list with a higher res screen

    Wish they would re-release it on a modern engine for PC.

    I would hate trying to play this on a phone. The small screen size and having the controls on the screen too.... This is certainly only a logical purchase for tablets.

    decade old game , are you kidding me ... have you seen how games are becoming now , they are so short cos of the 'WE need better graphics ' the only games that i remember are from ps1 and ps2 , now games are so short you can complete them almost in one day ....
    old games had story , and so much longevity .. nothing can beat grim fantango , age of empires and crash warped 3 ...
