GTA News | GTA V Pre-Order Details / The Warriors Out on PSN
Rockstar recently announced that they will be releasing a special edition and a collectors edition of Grand Theft Auto V, in addition to the regular version of the game for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. In addition all pre-orders, regardless of platform or edition, will get access to the Atomic Blimp in-game vehicle (presumable available for download with a single use code).
The special edition includes the following:
- Collectible SteelBook with Exclusive Artwork - Blueprint Map - Special Ability Boost - Stunt Plane Trials - Bonus Outfits, Tattoos and More - Additional Weapons
The collectors edition includes the special edition version of the game in addition to the following:
- Grand Theft Auto V Security Deposit Bag with Logo Key - Grand Theft Auto V New Era 9FIFTY™ Snapback Cap - Custom Characters for Grand Theft Auto Online - Unique Vehicles and Garage Property
In North America the recommended retail price for the special edition is $79.99 and $149.99 for the collectors edition. UK/EU prices seem to vary from country to country with specific retailers holding exclusives over the various versions.
Both the special edition and collectors edition are available for pre-order until the 17th of September 2013.
After a bit of a false start the PlayStation 2 classic The Warriors is now officially available for purchase on the PlayStation Network. As with other Rockstar classic releases the game is available for $9.99 in North America, £7.99 in the UK and €9.99 in the rest of Europe. As before this is an emulation rather than a HD remaster of the PlayStation 2 version of the game.
Manhunt News | Manhunt Coming to PlayStation Network
Rockstar have announced that they plan to release the PlayStation 2 classic Manhunt on the PlayStation Network next week! This will no doubt come as a very welcome addition to many as it has been a repeated query of PlayStation 3 owners for a few years now.
You can expect the game to set you back $9.99 in North America, £7.99 in the UK and €9.99 in the rest of Europe. The game will be included as part of the scheduled PlayStation Store updates, this usually works out to be late Tuesday night in North America and Wednesday afternoon in Europe.
At the same time, Rockstar have also confirmed that The Warriors will be officially making its way to the PlayStation Network as well. There’s no word on Manhunt 2 hitting PSN, but you have got to figure it isn’t too far off.
As with past PlayStation Network releases these will be PlayStation 2 emulations rather than HD remasters. Although this November does mark a decade since the release of Manhunt, a HD collection would be pretty good – just saying...
GTA News | GTA: Liberty/Vice City Stories Released on PSN
Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories are the latest batch of Rockstar titles to see release on the PlayStation Network, they will set you back $9.99 each in North America and £7.99 in the UK.
As with their previous classic releases these are straight PlayStation 2 emulations and not HD remasters of the titles.
Word back from the SCEE PlayStation Store team is that Rockstar requested that the PlayStation 2 version of The Warriors be removed from the store, while the PlayStation Portable version remains available in all territories. It is possible that there is some licensing issue preventing the PlayStation 2 version of the game being available digitally, or maybe Rockstar have something planned for the future.
Rockstar News | More Classic Rockstar Titles On PSN
Midnight Club and Midnight Club 2 have recently been made available for purchase through the PlayStation Network in Europe.
The European PlayStation Blog lists The Warriors as being added to the PlayStation Network this past Wednesday, but as of writing the game is not showing up on the UK store and the blog lists Germany and Kuwait as the only European stores not scheduled to host the game, so who knows what is going on. Additionally there doesn’t seem to have been any update regarding a North American release.
Once again, these are straight emulations of the PlayStation 2 versions and not HD remakes.
All recent additions carry a price tag of £7.99/€9.99.
Rockstar Games have finally attached a release date to Grand Theft Auto V; unfortunately it is accompanied with a delay from the projected timeframe. The game is now scheduled for release on the 17th of September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, the reason cited for the delay is that the game requires more polish. If you set your memory back to 2007 then you may recall that Grand Theft Auto IV also suffered a release set back for a similar reason.
If you are feeling down about the Grand Theft Auto V delay then you can cheer yourself up by heading over to the PlayStation Store where you will find the just released Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Similar to Rockstar’s other recent PlayStation Network additions this is a straight emulation of the PlayStation 2 version of the game and not a HD remaster, the game costs $9.99 in North America and £7.99 in the UK.
They are still promising that there are more PlayStation 2 Classics releases forthcoming.
