Well incase you guys didnt read on the front page, Its confirmed. We get GTA 3 and VC in a packaged deal. I wonder if they are gonna still charge 40-50 bucks for it. What do you guys think?

I don't know if we get shafted that much on the price. You get both of them for $50. PS2 owners spent $100. So it isn't like they are trying to get that out of us. Where they do shaft us is that they then turn around and sell the same two pack deal to PS2 owners for $40.

For those games, $50 is priced about right. I'm assuming that this is a direct PoS2 port...

I'll only but it if they improve the graphics or include some xbox-exclusive goodies, but if they don't I am not wasting my money. I played them both and beated them on my ps2 so....l8ter

They better not make it a ps2 port. They should have mp3 support like they did on the PC and a graphic face lift.

I read somewhere that it will have PC-caliber graphics. But that was the only thing they would say, no word on custom soundtracks though. Im pretty happy, I ALMOST bought Vice city the other day at Circuit City for 40 bucks (PC). I can wait a couple months.

I'll put down $50 for it, and I'll bet so will a lot of other people. I know there is a lot of looking-down-the-nose at the GTA series, since it was the PS2's biggest seller, but I think it's a fairly good game. Not the best ever, but pretty good. And at two-for-one, why not.

I won't get it because I have both on PC, I would think that R* would improve the graphics, they did on the pc, even on my POS vid card, it looks a helluva lot better than on PS2

I am not picking it up and if I did they would have to make a big facelift to the graphics for me to change my mind.

hmmm...if this bundle is going to have the PC graphics instead of the PoS2 graphics, this may be worth it.

Personally, I liked the game far more on the PC than I did on the PoS2 (I haven't played VC on my PC yet, though)...and, yes, the graphics had a huge part in that. We all know the gameplay is awesome in GTA3 & VC, however, we should expect more when it comes to graphics... I think a PC port would definately make things better.

As Ive said before.... /twirls finger.. We'll have True Crime by then, and Unless it offers something different from the PS2/PC version....its just a port.

It'll sell well though... /sigh

My biggest concern with True Crime is the "locking" system in which you have to lock onto a target before shooting at them. Damn, I hate that type of set up....I hope it's not like Dead To Rights in that aspect...

Even if so...Id rather play that than an older games that's lost its luster in after a week of play (GTA/VC)

No there ports of the pc versions and the pc version is a port of the pos2 versions, so it's a port of a port.

Beated them, did you say beated them. Ha. Hahaha. Aaaaaha,ha Haaaaaaa! Beated them! How long did it take you to beated them? Especially, when so much of your time is obviously spent listening to Hooked on Phonics the remix!!!:rofl:

i cant wait! a few weeks ago i was thinking of buying a PS2 again just for those games...but now i dont have to :)

and that would be awesome if they had custom soundtracks. think of all the great songs you could listen to while you're driving around and running people over :)

I just saw the screenies. Oh joy! They were of Xbox caliber. I change my mind I'm gettin' this one. Custom soundtracks? I couldn't take that, that would be too damn much! :D

The PC version had the MP3 radio station so there is definately the possibility for a custom soundtrack.

I'll probably pick this up anyway, as I sold my PC GTA3 and only played VC at a friends house. It could be nice having both around just to pop in and create havoc around town. :D

Were the graphics for the PC version as hot as those screenies that I saw? Please say yes, please say yes.

First off...Lynx! The new sig is awesome!

And really, to get both games for $50 is not a bad deal. If we get the PC ports w/ some extras I might have to pick these up, as I've yet to play either game. I still think True Crime has the possibility of completely whuppin' up on these two and giving Rockstar some real competition in the genre.

Yup....err I mean yes. :D

I saw high res screenshots on another website, IGN maybe? and it makes me wonder if they will try to make this game in HD. The screens were 720p.

And thanks thrAsher. :cheers:

I dont think they are gonna try nad use the 720p, its rare aps2 port goes to that extra length.

But it is more likely that they are porting from the PC version, which means that is very much a possibility since the first 'xbox' screens are in that res.
