Nearly a month ago, Rockstar announced that they would celebrate the 10th anniversary of the over-the-top, 80s themed entry in the Grand Theft Auto line by releasing it on two mobile platforms. Today, the release date has been made official.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City 10th Anniversary Edition will be available on iOS and Android starting December 6th. The game will sell for $4.99.
Rockstar was kind enough to include a rundown of compaitible devices in the email that brought this news our way. Here we go:
Apple iOS Devices: iPad, iPhone 4, 4S & 5, iPod touch 4th & 5th Generation
Android Phones: Motorola Razr, Razr Maxx, Razr Maxx HD, Motorola Atrix, Motorola Photon, Motorola Droid Bionic, HTC Rezound, HTC One X, HTC One S, HTC Evo 3D, HTC Sensation, HTC Droid Incredible 2, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Samsung Nexus S, Samsung Galaxy Note 1 & 2, Samsung S2, Samsung Galaxy R, Sony Xperia Play, Sony Xperia S, P, T & TL, Sony Walkman Z Series Media Player, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy S3, Google Nexus 4
Android Tablets: Acer Iconia, Asus Eee Pad Transformer, Asus Eee Pad Transformer Prime, LG Optimus Pad, Medion Lifetab, Motorola Xoom, Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.9 / 10.1, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, Sony Tablet S, Sony Tablet P, Toshiba Thrive, HTC Flyer, Google Nexus 7, Google Nexus 10
$4.99 is pretty good for this game and the open world action it provides. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City also packs what I consider the best licensed soundtrack in all of gaming. Take that as you will.
Who plans on picking this one up? Or, is the virtual stick control scheme on touch devices enough to keep you away?
