Vice City Stories Trademarks Filed

GTA: VCS - General News | @ 08:36 PM MDT | By JMR
According to many sources on the interweb, Take Two has filed three trademarks for the much-speculated sequel for Liberty City Stories, Rockstar's first journey into portable criminality.

The three trademarks registered are for "computer game programs", "clothing" (our guess is Vice City Stories-themed t-shirts and the like, such as the San Andreas bandanas), and "entertainment in the production of motion pictures". The last trademark led many to believe that Vice City Stories was actually a movie based on the Grand Theft Auto franchise, yet the last trademark mentions a global network, which is likely the reason why it was filed.

It seems as though the rumors concerning a sequel to LCS named "Vice City Stories" are true! We'll keep you updated.

That's been discussing on the forums for the last 2 weeks. Looking forward to hear it officially from the R*.

Alright Jeff! Finally set up for GTAGaming :p

Seems Vice City Stories would be cool, but I thought Rockstar confirmed earlier that the next GTA on PSP would be "all new" meaning new city, storyline, characters, etc. Anyways, nice first news post ;)

Movie might be good, yet it might be shitty. Its a gamble they'll have to risk if they want to make a movie.

This is very interesting, I hope we get more news on this.

I think a movie is a little over the top (if they do one) but it's great to see them branch out at the same time.

I'd also like it if they did do a new enviroment, rather than Vice/Liberty, but it will still be great to play.

That's pretty old, but it's great to see Ziddy set up your GTAGaming permissions :)

Well I was glad to hear that the next GTA on PSP would be in an "all new" city, but now that it's most likely going to be in Vice City...meh. VC was a good game, but the city was just too flat for me. But we'll see how it plays out.

Yeah, my permissions have been set up for a while, but edge was having some sort of problem registering it. It just started working since last night. Trust me, this would've gotten posted right when I heard about it if it were working properly. :P

I liked Vice alot more than Liberty. Hopefully they make just a few minor changes (not so many as to over do it) to make the city more interesting.

Maybe put a few rises in and definatley some changes to downtown.

Do you think Vice City Stories will come put on PS2/PS3? If it does I think it will sell well (I will be buying).

my guess:
ps2 games will be coming out untill at least 2008

i see much overlap, because the ps2 is soo powerful, and the ps3 will me soo expensive.

What's Next? San Andreas Stories. I would laugh if they called it that.

I heard the next-gen GTA will come out in 2007. I'm hoping for the Playstation 3 to be only $400.00 w/o tax. I want a little extra money to spend on games.

A GTA Movie, it will probally do good, hey if rockstar can make good games, they could (possibly) make good movies.

Nice to See JMR posting news :D

And, this is pretty cool. If you see some of the information it says something about animations, so we could see a cartoon?

If the final title will actually be "Vice City Stories", I'll bee sorely dissapointed in R*'s lack of creativity.

Well, upon thought, Vice city stories wouldn't be that bad.... I mean, so what its a re-used city? It can take place right after Tommy Vercetti takes control of Vice City and you can be an Italian friend/family member who works for his generals or somthing like that, who's getting up there.. I mean, hell, Claude might even be one of the story line as a contact or something, it was the oldest sseries in the timeline.... anythings possible.

Nah, right after Tommy took over would suck, it needs to be many years later. Like, a present day Vice City. And you could play as an older Tommy or someone else from VC.

A present day Vice would be very cool. I thought the city was pretty amazing in the 80's so it would be great nowdays.

I actually thought that it would be set before Tommy, but it will be better nowdays.

I don't know who ever figured it is going to be a movie. If you look at it here you will see it says movie tv show or a computer game played through a global network aka the internet. Also it says that it could be for production of prerecorded of video cassettes, video discs, or laser disc, which we may know that PS2 games are recorded on DVDs(video discs).

I dont think Vice was better than San Andreas, I thought it was for a while but it cant be compared to San Andreas. I do think it would be a good movie, because it is set in a glamorous enviroment but Tommy carries out dirty work.
