On the most recent Official Playstation Blogcast some news regarding a very popular and successful PlayStation Portable game was announced, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories will be available to download via the PlayStation Store after this weeks latest Store update on Tuesday.
When the PlayStation updates on July 17th an updated version of Liberty City Stories will be released that will now work on Vita, although the word “updated” is used loosely. As there is no graphical improvements, no Trophy roster additions or anything like that, but it will now be available for download. Being one of the many PSP games incompatible with Vita technology, this is a great step to hopefully seeing many other classic PSP titles being able to make the Vita jump. Even though these games are far from new releases, having the extended library of classic titles to choose from is a great feature to have. Especially in recent Vita title droughts.
October 2005 marked the release of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories, the following Summer it was ported to the PlayStation2 and has become one of Rockstars great sellers over the years. Back in Mach 2008 it was reported that overall the game had sold 8 million copies over both releases. Since having 4 more years to greatly increase that number, you would assume this game has garnered many more sales since.
