Everyone in the gaming world is waiting to see what wild new experiences Rockstar will bring with the launch of Grand Theft Auto V. While waiting for that game, however, Rockstar is hoping that fans of the GTA series will be looking to ease back into the sandbox gameplay with a nostalgic trip through the older games in the series.
Just last year, the publisher released Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. It also released Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation Network.
Though there hasn’t been an announcement that San Andreas is on the way to mobile platforms, Rockstar today did reveal that Vice City is coming to the PlayStation Network next week. Gamers will soon be able to take on the role of Tommy Vercetti via their PlayStation 3 (and presumably Vita) consoles. The game takes place in a Miami-inspired city and features 80s themes and music. The game’s story also loosely follows that of the movie Scarface.
Vice City will launch part of the PlayStation 2 Classics collection next week, on January 29 (January 30 in Europe). Unfortunately, the price of the game won’t be as inexpensive as its $5 price on mobile platforms. Vice City in the PlayStation Store will sell for $10/€10/£8.
Rockstar also teased that “more classic Rockstar titles” will be coming to the PSN “in the weeks and months ahead.”
