Seeing GTA Vice City release for Android and iOS devices is pretty exciting for the mobile gamer, and while this version from the popular franchise is over 10 years old, it is an impressive achievement for the army of Google Android devices plus iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The plan had been for GTA Vice City to launch for Android and iOS on the same release date, today, although this hasn’t happened due to problems on the Android platform.
GTA Vice City setback for Android – we might have GTA 5 to look forward to next spring, but playing our favorite gaming franchise on mobile devices is still pretty fun and this is exactly why thousands of mobile gamers are wondering where the GTA Vice City download is for Android? If you look on the Google play store you might have come across the app, but Rockstar has commented on this and stated, “this is an error“. You can see Rockstar’s exact comment in the image below that they posted a few hours ago, which basically explains the setback is due to “validation errors“.
Be careful of scams when it comes to GTA Vice City for Android – there is a big difference when it comes to Android and iOS, which includes pros and cons for each platform. The closed iOS system means that a lot of Google OS smartphone and tablet owners hate less openness, and this is why they don’t choose Apple’s mobile devices. The problem with a more open system is that it can be taken advantage of and this leads to some apps landing on the Google play store that are scams. When it comes to the setback for GTA Vice City on Android it seems that certain apps are taking advantage of this, and you don’t need to look far to see apps on the Google play store claiming to offer a download for the 10th Anniversary Edition of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
One such example we found is called “GTA Vice City free download” and the title explains it all, anyone in his or her right mind would understand Rockstar does not endorse this. You can also look at the comments and ratings of such apps, and in most cases other Android users will point out a scam when they see one. Do you normally spot fake apps on the Google play store easily?
Bottom-line: Rockstar explain they will let you know when GTA Vice City is live for download on Android, so keep connected to their Facebook channel, official website, or PR’s Facebook to know when that is.
