Grand Theft Auto Vice City Back Up in Google Play

Finally! It’s back! After almost a week’s worth of delay, Rockstar has republished Grand Theft Auto Vice City to Google Play. Last week, Android users ran into some technical difficulties with the title, but it looks like R* has been able to clear that up.

The game is listed as $5, even though I think we deserve a couple days of 50% off. Oh well, we have Google Play Christmas sales coming up anyways.

Play Link ($4.99)

Cheers Ryan and Shayne!

    Says it’s not compatible with my Verizon Note 2 on the Play store site

    • inzandity

      Mine too…what a let down

      • Geoff Johnson

        Yet in the app description it says the Note 2 is supported… Here’s hoping it’s a quick update that will bring it to us!

        • inzandity

          I e-mailed the developers. I will post back if they say something, but I doubt it will be a speedy turnaround time…

          • Geoff Johnson

            I sent them a request as well

  • Chris

    Gosh. Not supported for the original Asus Transformer. GTA III runs just fine. Come on, Rockstar ….

    How do I side load an app?

    • matt masino

      i bought it on my nexus then i backed up the app. you need to be rooted to backup most APKs. i moved the install data from my nexus to my bionic and installed the APK form the backup.

      • Chris

        Cool. Thanks, Matt. I am all rooted (Galaxy Nexus and Transformer). Will get that going tonight.

  • Silver Veloz

    Tim is in heaven now. LOL – Enjoy.

  • Adam Nazare

    Wth! Says not compatible with my DROID dna

  • matt masino

    It says its incompatible with the droid bionic but if you side load the app it works just fine. i hate when they do this!!

  • spunker88

    Looks like they are hosting it on Google Play now as the size is listed as 1.4GB on Google Play. Its about time, had they done this in the first place they wouldn’t have had the download issues.

  • duece

    Cool, just started playing it. I don’t understand the duece cannon? Are those big brown turds flying out of the barrel? And are those corn casings flying off the turds as they rocket through the air? I don’t remember the duece cannon in the original game, but it is pretty sweet!
