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…)
Back in October, Rockstar Games gave word that we could expect to see Grand Theft Auto: Vice City released for Android sometime this Fall. This morning, they have given an official launch date of December 6, just a couple of short weeks away. The game will sell for $4.99, not a bad price at all for one of the world’s greatest games of all time. Yep, I said that without hesitation. As many will wonder, Rockstar has posted which devices will initially support the game and it’s a pretty good list. And yes, the Galaxy Nexus and Galaxy S3 are on it.
Now all we do is wait.
To celebrate the game’s 10th anniversary (Oct. 29), Rockstar Games has announced that they are to release Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for mobile devices in the Fall. For those unfamiliar, Vice City is the next game after the first GTA that was made available for the PlayStation 2 that made stealing cars, getting wanted by the FBI, and other illegal activities involving women fun as can be. The game takes places in the 80s and takes certain aspects from much of that decade’s culture such as movies, music, and video games. (more…)
Mobile game lovers, to celebrate the Labor Day weekend, Rockstar Games has lowered the price of Max Payne to just $0.99. At that price, who can’t help but get into some crime fighting, gun blasting, street justice action? Wish I could say the same about GTAIII, but that one is still $5. Either way, good deal right here.
The ultra-hit Max Payne is now available for Android. Rockstar definitely took their time on this release, even by delaying launch a bit and we are hoping it was to squash as many bugs as they could before delivery. The game only costs $2.99 and if you are a true Payne fan, you know this is a small price to pay for such a classic. (more…)
After a few untimely launch delays, Rockstar has now given Android owners a concrete date at which to find Max Payne on the Android platform. Starting June 14, you can find the shooter on the Play Store for just $2.99. Not bad. Once the game is released, we will be picking it up and letting you know our thoughts on this re-release of one of the better classic titles from my younger years. Have all the delays sort of made this launch a big letdown for anyone else? It sure has for me.
A tweet sent out from Rockstar Game’s official Twitter says that Android users have to be patient for a bit longer if waiting for the release of Max Payne to the Android OS. No say as to what has caused the delay, but we can assume they’ve stumbled upon some bugs and are applying some emergency fixes before release. I don’t mind the wait, as long as this game is flawless when it’s released.
Stoked for Max Payne?
Cheers K and B!
