    While playing Vice city stories ( which is pretty awesome) i found out you can build your own little empire, which is so $#@!ing epic.

    I love how you can choose to make a brothel, protection racket and like 4 to 5 more which i forgot :P

    Plus you can expand and make them bigger and take over enemies areas. This was one thing i always wanted in a GTA game, never it it actually existed. If V had something like this.... that would be one of the best things to happen.

    I would actually put this down as my 3rd best gta game so far ( even though i have not put as much hours into it compared to other GTA's yet, just that good to me)

    Yep, they took San Andreas gang turf wars and the business part of vice city and blended them into one and came up with vice city stories

    It was really awesome to actually build, expand and fight for your empire

    I wouldn't want it in a GTA game, having to keep track of that stuff. But that's just me. I like to explore and do my own thing after completing the story.

    It was great then, but ROCKSTAR have moved on from that and focus on the entire city now and took out the empire building

    Not because it was so so bad or anything, it was freaking awesome back in the GTA III era... But it would be time consuming and would not really work in the GTA IV era and it would make the current ERA suffer a wee bit

    My opinion on why it is not in any of this ERA

    I think they just didn't want to do another rags to riches story. So, gameplay-wise, there would be no point in maintaining an empire.

    They're not connected if that's what you mean, so not really worth playing now IMO, back in the day they were pretty good but even then I wasn't that into them. GTA2 was good though.

    they are not connected, claude is in GTA2 and it is set in the future and GTA 1 is current day

    they have all the cities from the GTA III era as one massive city...

    I might try GTA 2 once again, just to visit Vice City.

    Great news guys VICE CITY is coming to the PSN

    Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Coming to PSN Next Week

    Posted 18 minutes ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

    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...

    The original Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will arrive for download on PlayStation Network next week as part of their PS2 Classics collection - on Tuesday, January 29th in North America and Wednesday January 30th in Europe, for $9.99 / €9.99 / £7.99.


    Stay tuned for more classic Rockstar titles coming for download to PSN in the weeks and months ahead.

    I got the anniversary edition already and seeing as the PS3 version isnt remodelled and doesnt have any graphical improvements I will pass.

    Great thanks for posting, will download it as soon as it hits. Guess they got the licensing back for Michael Jacksons' Wanna Be Startin' Somethin. I'll take the PS2 version over the android version any day, controller > touchscreen.

    The android version looks worse though, so it's a downgrade from the PS2 version.

    It's not lazy, it's just them not wasting time, money and effort on something like this when it can be better spent ( gta V)

    that was the first billboard that got my full attention when i arrived in Shoreside Vaile

    But all the Billboard got my attention, because they were so damn amazing

    And noticed my two favorite cars are in this shot, the taxie and the kamara

    Plus Claude the Man is holding my second favorite weapon the Colt 45... My favorite weapon ever in all GTA games and i use it in all missions when i can is the BASEBALL BAT

    There was a new update to the Xbox conversion mod I've been using for GTA III which adds shaders to the environment to make it look more like San Andreas but I personally didn't like it (ruins the atmosphere) so I reverted to the previous build.

    You probably can't see it but the one I'm using right now adds specular lighting (reflections) to the vehicles, aside from improving a lot of the textures which the billboard advertising a trip to Miami is a good example of.

    The IOS anniversary edition of Vice City had noticeable graphical improvements, not sure about android as I havent tried it but ios definitely had many aspects of the game improved.

    Yeah but the AA was pretty horrible.

    On a side note, GTA SA doesn't look that great depth wise on RAGE.
