After asking you for your thoughts on GTA V multiplayer, we now have one massive rumor to share with you. Sony is apparently in the process of conducting a survey, suggesting that a PS Vita version of Grand Theft Auto could be on the way.
We have spoke about this in the past, on how we felt a PS Vita version of GTA V needed to come, but to actually see the first possible evidence of this becoming a reality is very exciting indeed.
The survey, revealed by Digital Spy shows that Sony has been asking users on the possibility of picking up a Vita version of Grand Theft Auto, for a discounted price for owners that have already picked up the PS3 version of GTA V.
Screenshots have shown examples of the discount on offer, ranging from a £5 discount off the Vita version of GTA, all the way down to completely free, if you have already bought the PS3 version – Don’t forget that this is a scheme that already exists with the PS Vita and PS3 versions of MotorStorm RC, just for reference.
The survey continues to ask whether users would either prefer to pick up a retail version of selected games, or a digital copy instead with a £5 instant discount attached to it. Some of the logos of games shown include Little Big Planet, Gran Turismo and Grand Theft Auto – all unreleased games at the moment.
Are Sony and Rockstar on the verge of announcing something which would send shockwaves through PS Vita owners? The most anticipated game right now is arguably Call of Duty and PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, but we can safely say that a GTA V game for PS Vita would easily eclipse that in our opinion.
It may also be worth mentioning that prior to the announcement of the All-Stars Battle Royale game, it too had shown up early in some leaked Sony surveys, so bear that in mind. If a PS Vita version is really in development, we’re guessing that a 2012 release would be out of the question, since we still are no clearer to knowing how complete the console version is at the moment.
GTA V on PS Vita folks – what would you make of this announcement? Let’s hope we hear some more clues on this soon.
