Retailer lists Grand Theft Auto for PS Vita [UPDATE]
UK retailer leaks new GTA titled Vice City Nights.
Update: This has been confirmed to be fake. A 4chan user fabricated an entire page from Play.com which was picked up by most gaming websites as a potential ‘leak’. Play.com has clarified that it was not genuine.
“Play.com would like to clarify details of yesterday’s alleged leak of four new Vita titles. Unfortunately, the screenshots with references to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights, Tales Of Innocence R and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, posted on a games forum were not genuine Play.com pages and were fabricated.”
Original story: Although not revealed yet, online retailer Play.com has added a listing for a new Grand Theft Auto. And no, this isn’t GTA V, but a product page that suggests Rockstar’s flagship open-world franchise might make its debut onto Sony’s new portable console the PS Vita, under the tagline Vice City Nights.
It has been, however, pulled down from the site – which is pretty much expected with these kinds of leaks. Aside from the listing purportedly claiming the new GTA is inbound to the PS Vita, the retailer attached a $49.99 price tag. No other details were mentioned.
According to the photo on GTAForums, another batch of unannounced Vita titles have also leaked, including the much rumored Monster Hunter 3 in addition to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD and Tales of Innocence R.
Seeing how the PSP already seen three Grand Theft Auto games – Liberty City Stories, Vice City Stories and Chinatown Wars, seems that a PlayStation Vita release of Rockstar’s prime franchise doesn’t seem far off of a certainty. But the question remains whether it’s a fully-fledged GTA made specifically for the Vita or just a port of a spin-off title.
