Rockstar games have confirmed that they will be releasing Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as a download on the PlayStation store next week. The open world game will be available on the PlayStation 3.
Rockstar cited the success of their mobile releases of the game as inspiration for the move.
“Ever since the releases of San Andreas for PSN and Vice City for iOS and Android, we’ve received more than a few requests from the community wondering when they’d be able to touch down at Escobar International and return to the neon-lit streets and sun-splashed shores of Ocean Beach on their PS3s. Today, we can confirm that it won’t be long now…” – Rockstar Games
The PlayStation 2 classic will release Tuesday January 29th in North America and Wednesday January 30th in Europe. Moreover the title will cost $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99.
