It’s time for a 10th anniversary celebration of the second wave of mass killings and stealing of fabulous automobiles with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for both Android and iOS. On December 6th you’ll be able to pick this game up from the iTunes App Store and the Google Play app store for $4.99 USD for most any device you can imagine, including Android phones, tablets, the iPhone, iPod touch, and the iPad. Those of you who just cant wait that long should bust out the original Grand Theft Auto 3 – on both platforms already, just incase you did not know.
The team at Rockstar is proud to present Vice City for the following Apple devices: iPad, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPod touch 4th and 5th gen.
