Incredibly it's now been 10 years since Grand Theft Auto : Vice City first launched on Playstation 2 and Xbox. To mark the games anniversary Rockstar are releasing a new version of the game on iOS and Android devices.
Now we've learnt, thanks to Pocket-Link, that the new GTA : Vice City Anniversary Edition will be available to buy from December 6th. In the US the game will be priced at $4.99 , while in the UK we can expect to pay £4.99.
The Anniversary Edition has been fully optimised to take full advantage of iOS and Android mobile devices. The character models and lighting have been updated, while the game also takes full advantage of Apple's Retina displays.
Additionally, Rockstar have made the controls full customisable and introduced a new precise targeting mode to make playing on your smartphone or tablet easier. We'll be looking forward to playing the game on our Google Nexus 7 , which we've connected wirelessly to our PS3 controller for the ultimate portable gaming experience.
Other Android devices compatible with GTA : Vice City include the Galaxy S3, Sony Xperia S & T, HTC One X, Sony Xperia Play and many more. While iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 and iPad owners will also be able to get their Grand Theft Auto fix.
Rockstar have also confirmed that they'll be released a collection of artwork to mark the anniversary of Vice City, as well a trailer showcasing some of the most epic moments from the classic game. While they are also busy working on GTA 5 for the PS3 and XBOX 360 which will be released next year !
