With the first GTA V story DLC on the horizon, the recent GTA V DLC news regarding a trademark has once again reignited the likelihood of Rockstar finally developing a GTA V game for PS Vita, or at least offering a port if they are too busy.
Given the success of GTA V on PS3 and Xbox 360, it’s somewhat surprising that we have seen complete silence with regards to a GTA PS Vita game. Obviously Rockstar are one of the most in-demand developers in the business, but even then it wouldn’t be too hard you would think to get a third-party developer to port a GTA game to Sony’s handheld which is severely lacking in the new games department.
Looking at the sheer scale of GTA V (bigger than San Andreas and GTA IV combined), it looks very hard at this point to even consider GTA V for PS Vita. However, we have seen GTA San Andreas for Android and iOS two months ago so it would even be great to see this old classic on Sony’s 5-inch OLED beauty.
Going back to the actual news though, as we recently had a trademark filed by Take-Two for something called ‘City Stories’. At the time we had hoped that it could be related to the first GTA V story DLC considering it has been 10 months since release without any GTA V DLC for single-player.
The more we think about it though, City Stories sounds promising in terms of something for PS Vita instead of PS3 and Xbox 360 DLC. Then again, if Rockstar really are thinking about bringing San Andreas to PS Vita at last, then why would Take-Two register City Stories – unless it’s going to be GTA San Andreas City Stories for PS Vita?
The trademark is official though, so Rockstar obviously has something to hide. We want your input on this and what you truly think City Stories means. Do you agree that it is more likely to be something related to a PS Vita GTA game, rather than GTA V story DLC? Remember that there has already been a long running petition asking Rockstar to bring GTA to the PS Vita.
Hopefully E3 2014 will bring the answers.
