Thanks to Miami13 and GTAPSP for this very odd tidbit...

"Additional products expected for fiscal 2006 include the newly announced Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories for Playstation 2, tentatively planned for release in the second quarter, Bully for PlayStation 2 and Xbox, two new titles for the PSP handheld system, including an all-new Grand Theft Auto, a title based on a new brand for the Xbox 360 and a sequel of a Rockstar brand, all from Rockstar Games".


All I want to know is what is the point of re-releasing GTA: LCS on a console? It would obviously be dwarfed by the likes of San Andreas. Goddamnit, Rockstar!

At least we know there will be a new GTA game for the PSP.

Gamespot

Edit The original post was correct. Liberty City Stories WILL be released for the PS2 for the second quarter of 2006. More details here.
Miami13
Yeah I don't see why Rockstar is doing this, on console San Andreas is still most likely gonna be better than LCS on PS2, and yeah the one good bit of news was the confirmation of the new GTA title for PSP this year.

Eh?

What's this eh? Hmm, this could mean anything. Heres hoping it's a new Midnight Club/GTA for the PS3. wink.gif

Or at least a new midnight club for the 360. wink.gif

What relese date do you think we are looking at? match, april june

I'd go with October with the GTA's.

Maybe they will do what Madden did for PSP....If you own it on both systems(PS2 and PSP) you can transfer your save data from your PS2 game to your PSP game and vice versa. So you could continue your same game on either system. Doesn't help me though since I beat it 100% a couple months ago.

There realsing it on ps2 for money duh, people will obviously buy what they think is a new GTA.

I knew gta LCS was going to come out for the ps2 because R* knows that all the cool people play games on their ps2 and R* also knows that it will sell better on the ps2, at least R* is thinking seriously now because R* knows that only the uncool brigade play games on the out of style psp.

thats the biggest load of bullshit ive heard in my life, please tell me you were joking..

and of course R* are out to make money, if they didnt make money there wouldnt be a GTA >_<

Sounds good to me. Very good news for the people that didn't buy the ever so expensive PSP, so now we can just have it on the PS2. It probably wont be $49.99 like other PS2 games since this game is short and has poor graphics compared to San Andreas.

There's a trick in there somewhere...there has to be. It just would not be R* if they started releasing inferior games.

I am actually excited about this! I have wanted to play LCS since it was announced. I even was planning on buying a psp just to play it.. But changed my mind after realizing the psp sucks(feature wise). And just bought a new notebook instead. And I figured the only way I will be able to play it is if someone makes a working PSP emulator, or R* does something like this. So I am excited that I will finally be able to play it. But it better not be more then $35-$40!

I'm quite serious actually because now all us people who are too cool for the out of style psp can actually enjoy gta LCS since it is coming out for a real gaming system, the psp version was only a test to see how many uncool fools would buy it but now R* are going to release it for a real gaming system that it should of been released on in the first place.

Haha, forgot about that. I don't think R* even have the heart to create next-gen super gore like that shit. tongue.gif

Maybe after the PS3 breaks in a little bit and people accept the new level of reality all these new games bring and shit. wink.gif

I don't think that Letting other people play LCS is a bad thing =/.
You people are Extremely Self Centered.

That Aside, Liberty Stories shouldn't be on PS2. It just dosen't have enough Content to be a Legibale Console Grand Theft Auto.
I just hope they add all of the San Andreas Features in there as well, Stats, Weight, Swimming (Im sure They can figure out a way that you can't swim to the next island...), Climbing, ect.
Otherwise it's shitting on Progress.
It's gonna be like a Giant Step Backwards in the Grand Theft Auto Chain.

Oh Well, It's all about Money...

People are just mad that they wasted their money on a PSP just to get LCS and now people with PS2 won't have to waste their money on a PSP to play LCS. For Kamahl who said that the LCS graphics are better than San Andreas graphics, don't make me laugh.
Miami13
I am not That mad, but I am mad. I didn't buy my PSP solely for GTA especially since I got it in March. But Rockstar have been saying over and over "Exclusively for PSP" so yeah us PSP owners can be a little or a lot upset about this.
HB~Sauce
Yeah, thats cool in all for the people that don't have a PSP and they release it to PS2, but I sure hope they add stuff like swimming and some other stuff but I'm annoyed because I just got LCS for PSP. Its fun that GTA is on the go, but if they want to release it on the console, they have to pull a face lift on everything.

Damn Straight! If you all hadn't bought it for PSP already, you'd be like --> clap.gif

And Miami13, that's why you wait a while to see if they were gonna change their minds. I knew they would the second I saw that it was coming out for a Playstation device.
$carface
Phew, I was going to buy a PSP tomorrow.

Not just for LCS, but that was a main reason, now that it's coming out on PS2 where it will undoubtedly play better, I'm sticking with PS2.

oh yeah thanks a lot. youre not being fucking robbed. if you bought a psp just for LCS, youre an idiot. just because san andreas was out on ps2, then pc six months later, were the PS2 owners robbed?? no.
BigBadJohn
but when like san andreas came out for xbox it was kinda shady, gta was sony's main good title.

I was more angry about that rather than lcs being put on the ps2

it's only psp users that are saying it because they can't handle their own out of style path that they are leading and they are now angry because all the ps2 users will get to enjoy gta LCS for the first time on their 30/40 inch tv screens with much better graphics, textures, objects, longer draw distance and possibly more features.

Dude just stop, some people may be upset because one of the main reasons they bought a PSP was because of this game and Rockstar pretty much lied saying the whole time this was a PSP exclusive game. So you should stop trying to piss of the PSP owners.

Allow me to explain the point of this venture as alot of people don't know it. It's gonna be simple to take the GTA3 engine and reprogram it with some new stuff. Which is what I imagine they are going to do instead of using SA engine or making a new one etc. Easy and cheap, reprogramming GTA3 with some new stuff would be as i said easy and cheap and fast, but would still get alot of profit from both gta fans and the new people who havent gotten a gta before. I know I'll at least rent this when it comes out (or lets say i would if my ps2 werent fried).

No it doesn't =/

You know what I think it is? I think it's a test drive for the GTA IV engine. I mean it's fairly easy to use a similar map to one they've already made, but use a basic version of the engine we've been anticipating since before VC was released.

[Edit] Neon, SA used the GTA3 engine...
INzANE
I wouldn't buy it if it isn't $30 or under.

I'd still buy it even though I have it for PSP. But you can tell R* is milking this title for all it's worth.

Do you think they will make the next PSP GTA for PS2 also?
Russian
Pretty good marketing strategy.
Half of GTA-Fans or even more doesn't have PSP. They will buy GTA:LCS for sure.
People like me will buy it even they have PSP.

deejay
i made a topic on the possiblity of LCS coming to the PS2 a couple of weeks ago and everyone laughed after me, i just hope they add neew stuff
tick
i think this a good idea too... i dont have a psp and dont plan on getting one. and i've been itching to play it. and as far as them "milking it"... i think they should.. they have to recover from the whole yanking from the stores hot coffee ordeal... have you seen the stock of Take2? when sa came out it was in the $30's.. now its around $18-$19.
Gina 84
I bought a PSP just to play that game, but it's not a bad idea to see it in the PS2, the main reason is PS2 GTA LCS will contain more stuff that's what I think.
Kamahl
but then, the people who bought the PSP version will be angry (maybe not all of them)

Hey personally I am glad that they are bringin out Liberty City stories on PS2. Cuase I have a PS2 and I only want a PSP cuase its got LCS on it. It saves me some money so I'm happy smile.gif

even without GTA LCS, the PSP is worth it and a new GTA is coming for PSP so... if you don't wanna wait 1 year until the release it for PS2/PS3, i suggest you get one.
Un-Amurikan Bastage
I love the idea! I hate it when the rich bitches with their PSP's think they're the best bastards out there because they and they only could play LCS. Now, I can play LCS, and it will superior to their version (it better be for a console game).

@Miami
It was] exclusive for PSP for that time, but R* knew better...they gotta bring in some extra cash to work on GTA:IV, right?

Besides, I have a habit to collect things, and LCS left a nice hole in my GTA's right next to the spot where GTA:I should be...

Also, like Deko said, when SA came out for PC and XBox (bah!), PS2 owners weren't pissed now, were they? So why are the PSP owners all PMS-y about it. Personally, not aiming at anyone in particular, if you bought a PSP for the soul reason of being able to get LCS, you are a jackass with too much money. If there were other initiatives, fine with me; I'm just saying about people that bought it just for the game and the game alone.
jayzamann
Tis all money driven. There was no way in hell LCS would have been for PSP alone. Same way all the other GTA's were shipped off to XBox the instant they were able to be.

If money speaks louder than people like our buddy Blaz3 here, then we may as well be mute.
gta-andreas_killer
lol, look, just cuz ppl have PSP systems doesnt mean that they have to get mad and shit just cuz PS2 owners r getting it for the consoul.


i was gonna buy a PSP and LCS, but until now, ide rather wait till it comes on on the PS2
