Rockstar Games has today announced that it will release a pack containing both Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for PlayStation 2 and Xbox later this year. It's not yet clear whether the games will in any way improve upon the PS2 originals, but today's announcement is sure to please Xbox owners who, until now, have been without a GTA game of any description.The PlayStation 2 pack is currently scheduled for release in North America on October 22, with the Xbox version following on November 4.

Wow, both games in a two pack! I wonder how they got around to releasing them before 2004, though? It's strange that there's no mention of this in the article.

 

They re-negotiated the contract with Sony, and the terms of that new contract are not public.

 

I'm curious what price this bundle will be on the PS2 seeing as both games are fairly cheap to buy right now, or will they find a way to "add value" to get it re-bought?

This just out on it:

 

There will be several enhacements for the Xbox version of GTA Double Pack. The game will feature higher polygon models, enhaced audio, specular lighting and reflection mapping.

 

"The game will look better on the Xbox with its enhacements. It's not just a straight port." said Lapin.

There is another shot at team xbox. Actually, Multiplayer via Live would have been a good way to justify charging a full price for the game eh?

As one who has yet to play either game, count me in with the happy and excited crowd. I only hope Rockstar does a good job porting it over like they are promising and don't just do a rush job to get it out the door and into people's Xboxes by Christmastime

I imagine that they would be able to adapt the PC ports over to the Xbox with relatively little problem compared to the PS2 versions. The PC version even has a form of custom soundtrack support and Vice City in particular looks and plays very smooth compared to the PS2 version. It would be even nicer if they could adapt the PC control scheme to the Xbox version :)

 

Whatever they do, my roommate will be very excited by this. Ever since he got his own Xbox, he's been whining about GTA3 being the one game he'd love to have from the PS2 :)
