Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights and more unknown PS Vita games spotted on retail site

A now-defunct listing found on Play.com suggests Sony has a Grand Theft Auto spin-off in production for PlayStation Vita. As spotted in the gtaforums, the premature post displayed a mock-up for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights, as well as box art and info for Monster Hunter Portable 3, Tales of Innocence R, and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

Only the Monster Hunter Portable 3 listing remains on the UK retailer's website, however this image depicting all four unconfirmed titles has been making the rounds:

While image itself smells of a homemade hoax, it's credibility is bolstered by the fact Sony is gearing up to make a slew of new PS Vita announcements in just a couple days during its “PlayStation Vita Game Heaven” event on March 9.

Conspicuous timing aside, the fact that Monster Hunter was seen running on the PS Vita (then NGP) back in 2011, Final Fantasy Type-0 has been rumored to be making the jump to PS Vita, and that Tales of Innocence R is already out in Japan, makes the possibility of a Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Nights even more believable by association. Until Sony gives us confirmation on Friday, consider us “cautiously optimistic”.

    A GTA game for Vita ought to be fun, but I really hope that they're actually localizing Tales of Innocence. I'm still eagerly awaiting Tales of Graces F, and knowing that I may have another Tales game to play in the future would be all kinds of awesome.

    I'm hoping for a GTA: San Andreas Stories

    This is definitely fake. "Monster Hunter Portable 3rd" didn't have Gravios in it and each new Monster Hunter games cover shows off a new monster, so it seems quite unlikely that they would put a season 1 monster on the front cover of a new game. Even if they did that, the game would most certainly have a different name (Like "Monster Hunter Portable 3G").

    I hope this is real. I really want Monster Hunter and Tales of Innocence. Looking forward to the ninth to see if these are indeed true.
