“The success of Liberty City Stories on the PSP system was nothing short of spectacular,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rock star Games and Executive Producer. “The incredible PSP system technology allowed us to do things we never thought possible on a handheld system and we are excited to once again give our audience a fresh experience in one of their favorite locales in the Grand Theft Auto series, Vice City. With Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories we look to once again smash expectations of portable gaming, bringing an all new story and exciting new game play elements to this classic setting.”

“Our collaboration with Rockstar Leeds has been a tremendous experience,” said Leslie Benzies, President of Rockstar North. “Together we have been able to create uncompromising experiences on the PSP system that not only stay true to our initial vision for the series but that surpasses our own goals of what could be done on a handheld. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories will thrill longtime fans and excite new PSP system gamers like never before.”
“We are proud of what we were able to achieve with Rockstar North on Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories,” said Gordon Hall, President of Rockstar Leeds. “By staying true to the high standards of the series and surpassing fans’ expectations for a Grand Theft Auto title on a portable machine we feel confident that Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories will redefine what handheld gaming is capable of with the most intense PSP system experience yet.”

No word on how long after its release Vice City Stories will take to be on the PS2, however.
