To celebrate 10 years since the launch of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and its upcoming mobile release next week, Rockstar have delivered a new nostalgia-filled anniversary trailer.
Because, let's face it, Vice City was (and probably still is) the best GTA of them all.
This is one of those 'cheap, but' deals that we frequently have to qualify. £1.49 is a great price for Vice City, which is one of our favourite games in the entire GTA franchise. It's cheap, but you should probably be aware that the complete collection packs are frequently reduced to competitive £5 levels.
So, basically, you should only proceed if you want Vice City on its lonesome. Credit to SixFeet at HUKD.
The ESRB have recently re-rated GTA III and GTA Vice City as PS2 Classics for the Playstation 3, indicating that a PSN release for two of Rockstar's finest is almost certainly on the cards. San Andreas was notable by its absence, and the PS2 Classics download service is still yet to make the jump to Europe.
Mind you, if you've got an early PS3 model, backwards-compatibility with discs is still an option.

Rockstar have spoilt us really. The Grand Theft Auto series has never really produced a dud, although some might criticise the long-running sandbox franchise as essentially being exactly the same game repackaged time and again. But to do so would be to ignore the details, and Rockstar are nothing if not all about the details.
Though GTA 3 was an undoubtedly important game, San Andreas offered more options and customisation than ever before not to mention some fantastic territorial empire-building, and GTA 4 served up an enormous slice of polished next-gen urban richness, my personal favourite comes in the form of GTA: Vice City...and I know I'm not alone.
It's almost too easy to extract severe amusement from poking fun at the 80s these days, but Rockstar managed to perfectly balance nostalgia with trademark biting wit and satirical cultural humour. Taking the piss out of hair metal and glam rock whilst simultaneously revelling in it was always going to be par for the course really.
And so, channelling the likes of Mötley Crüe, with a splash of Spinal Tap thrown in for good measure, Vice City gave rise to the musical behemoth that is Love Fist.It's time to rock out with your c*ck out. Click here to read the rest of our Love Fist fest...
