'Liberty City Stories' for PS2 Update

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 05:56 PM MDT | By Zidane
Gamespot posted some news earlier today, stating that Rockstar plans to release LCS for the PlayStation 2 on June 6 (and June 9 for Europe) for the price of $19.99. The earlier release date was said to be sometime in late April, and the game itself was rumored to sell for $30. This is not the debut of LCS, so the price drop makes sense. Also given that some of the extra features in the PSP version may not make it into the PS2 version.

The entire bit can be found here.


Thanks to Triple J for the heads up!

Though this is good for those who don't affiliate with PSP's or can't purchase one, I don't think I'll be geting one even at the VERY low price of 20 bucks.

Ain't worth a Cracker Jack.

Ouch, that's not exactly fair! They put a lot of work into the game, especially the audio crew. Personally, I couldn't bring myself to finish Liberty City Stories on the PSP once I learned it was coming out for PS2 - it just felt too... you know what I'm getting at, though that isn't R*'s fault. Once it's on the PS2, we'll be able to play it on a large screen, use controls we're all comfortable with, listen to higher quality audio and basically, enjoy the game the way it's meant to be played.

Yeah, I guess it was a tad bit harsh.

But, it's still a little "meh".

Another semi-good decision by R* to price another one of their games at $20.00, I'll definetely give it a rent, even though I'm already sick to hell with LCS...

I am so happy this is gona be great though i am worid i think Rockstar have rushed themselves to much, and this situation doesn't give a good example to other rockstar games in the future. Lets say Vice City Stories comes out people will believe that the game will come to PS2 in the end, so there wouldn't buy it for PSP and rather wait for it on PS2.

I wouldn't buy it. It's basically just buying GTA 3 all over again just with a few differences :).

Hardly a story at all imo. They don't ever stray from the basic "kill this guy, steal this car" mafia missions. Does get quite boring...

I'd like to buy LCS for PS2, but is it really worth it?

I've read from Take-2 site, the pricing for the UK gamers will be 20 , that's insane IMO.
