Today R*Q at RockStar Games has announced that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is out now on PlayStation Network.
To quote: Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, the story of one man's rise to the top of the criminal pile, is now available to download from PlayStation Store for $9.99 as part of the PS2 Classics collection.
That's the original game in digital form, and to complete the nostalgia, we've made the map that was originally packed in the game box available as a hi-res jpeg for you to print out and peruse next time you're lost in Little Havana.
We've also got the maps for http://media.rockstargames.com/grandtheftauto3/img/global/maps/gta3map.jpg and http://media.rockstargames.com/sanandreas/img/global/maps/sanandreasmap.jpg, both of which are already available to download from PS Store.
Ten years have passed since Vice City was originally released on PlayStation 2. Over at the http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/47491/behind-the-scenes-in-grand-theft-auto-vice-citys-the-lab-part-3-.html, we've been casting an eye back and celebrating that anniversary with a series of features and never-before-released peeks behind the digital curtain of the game's development.
One of these was a three-part series of interactive Flash features showcasing the game's http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/47321/behind-the-scenes-in-grand-theft-auto-vice-citys-the-lab-part-1-.html, http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/47431/behind-the-scenes-in-grand-theft-auto-vice-citys-the-lab-part-2-.html and http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/47491/behind-the-scenes-in-grand-theft-auto-vice-citys-the-lab-part-3-.html.
'The Lab', as the series is known, was originally exhibited at London's Design Museum when they nominated the game for their 'biggest contribution to design in 2002' award. This is the first time it has been made widely available online.
We hope you enjoy revisiting Vice City on PS3. Look out for more classic Rockstar titles arriving on PSN in the next few weeks.
