    Wow, I don't know how I missed this one. Spending too much time with the family, not enough time reading the forum, I guess [​IMG]

    How dare you, Marc?!?!

    Yes, I'll be all over this one. I don't play any SCEA games so I really wasn't missing out on not owning a PS2. GTA was the only game that was out on PS2 that I wished was out on XBox and it now looks like someone read my mind! [​IMG]

    As an owner of PS2 and XBox I wont be buying this. Now if there are extra levels and such then yes I will buy it. I dont have GTA3 but it can be had for $20 or less on Ps2. Call me a cheap bastid but Its not worth the $50 to me.

    Im still not even finished with VC yet either!

    According to OXM, GTA and Vice city will shine on the Xbox. This version will support in game 5.1 surround, 720P presentation and enhanced graphics to take advantage of it, as well as longer draw distances. There are other enhancements as well but I can't remember them all. For those of us who have never played this, we will be getting the best version yet.

    I have never played either game, but have always wanted to. I'll definitely be picking these up.

    Apparently the PS2 versions have been upgraded to support 480p.

    I have GTA3 and VC for my PS2, but I'll be picking up the XBox compilation for sure. The improved graphics, custom music playlists and convenience of having the series on the Xbox is very appealing to me.

    The thought of pulling drivebys on people with "It's a Small World After All" playing in the background is also very appealing to me.

    After hearing my buddy Stu taunt and tease me for months because "the best video game out right now isn't even ON Xbox..." this is great news indeed.

    There's a little preview of the Xbox version in this month's Game Informer magazine, and it sure sounds solid.

    A definite purchase for me.

    What did I miss? What happened to the Sony exclusiveness? Is time up already?

    GTA3 as well as Vice City are in the top 5 video games I have ever played. I put it in the ranks of the original Atari Pitfall, Legend of Zelda, and Metroid games.....


    I no longer have my PS2, I gave it to my best friend. I really miss Vice and GTA3...

    BUT..... I now have an XBOX... You can bet I will have this game on release date baby!!!! WOOOHOOOO [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    No loopholes or anything that interesting. It appears it was a simple renegotiation between Take Two/Rockstar and Sony. There was an article in May on IGN about a Take Two conference call where the renegotiation was first mentioned.

    Here is the link:

    It'd be very surprising if the PS2 versions were upgraded to 480p support. First, it's hard to believe that they would go to the extra extra effort for what is basically a repackaging. Second, the PS2 hardware seemed to be pretty taxed running the games in 480i.

    I think you're right, the info I got was pretty badly phrased.
