We received great news this morning, as Rockstar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas would be making its way to Android in the next month. The game has apparently undergone a complete overhaul, with Rockstar’s developers adding in dynamic and detailed shadows, optimizations for touchscreen devices, and an enriched color palette. If they include the same optimizations they went through for Vice City, then we should be in for quite a treat. (more…)
Starting today and ending July 30, pick up all three of Rockstar’s official Android titles on sale through Google Play. Vice City is listed at just $2.99, GTA3 is going for the same price and Max Payne is just $1.99. The GTA titles are usually listed around $5, so if you have been waiting for a sale, now is the time. (more…)
For a very limited time, go pick up Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for just $1.99. If you have followed Rockstar and their titles on Google Play, you would know how often times rare it is to see these apps go on sale. In fact, I don’t know if I have ever seen Vice City on sale since it’s been released. (more…)
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!
Well, this will be just a quick update on the failed launch of Grand Theft Auto Vice City for Android. This morning, the game went live on Google Play, got downloaded by a few hundred people, then taken down due to some validating errors with the APK. It sucks, but these things happen. Rockstar issued an apology on their blog and have said that we can expect another release for the end of next week.
Hey guys, due to unforeseen technical issues, the Android release of Vice City will be slightly delayed. Our goal is to get this out for Android by the end of next week. Our apologies for the delay to all our fans on Android devices and please stay tuned for updates.
In other news, the iOS version works great!
Well folks, could today get any worse? This morning, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto Vice City was released to Google Play for Android, then taken down after reports of XAPK validation issues. Since then, Rockstar has acknowledged the issues, pulled it from Google Play, and say that it will be back…eventually. (more…)
One of the things that made Grand Theft Auto fun to play was the feature of being able to listen to the “radio” while driving or flying around. It made the game that much more enjoyable, which had many people discovering new music that they would go on to love. On top of that, just cruising through the mountains on a chopper listening to Skynyrd’s Free Bird is simply the best feeling ever.
If there are some songs from any of the past GTA’s that you want to hear, you can download GTA Radio. It has most of the popular stations from all of the past games and besides the sometimes slow buffering times, the audio is great. No telling when or if this app will be pulled for some type of copyright violation, but we can enjoy it while it lasts.
