GTA: Libery City Stories For PS2 Revealed
Some of the best videogame related news is found in companies' earnings reports when developers disclose titles in development to explain their earnings forecast. Gamespot is reporting that a few juicy nuggets were found in Take-Two Interactive's reports. Today's report, which covers the rest of Take-Two's fiscal year (ending on October 31st), shed some light on not one, but two Grand Theft Auto games in development.
The report states that Take-Two is porting an existing PSP game to a current generation console, and that the title will be released sometime before April 30th, the end of the company's second quarter. Take-Two CEO Paul Eibler put an end to all the speculation during a conference call saying "We are very pleased that we have been able to extend Liberty City Stories into the PS2 environment." Take-Two recently reported disappointing earnings, some of which can be blamed on less than stellar sales of Liberty City Stories on the PSP. The game has sold well, but it's not exactly the "system seller" that many people were predicting, so it's not surprising to see the game headed to a system with a larger user base.
The second game in the report is an all-new Grand Theft Auto, this time for the PSP. No details on the game's location, subject matter, or charters has been given - we only know that it will be out by Halloween.
