E3 06: New GTA confirmed for PSP

Just hours after the announcement ofGrand Theft Auto IV for360andPS3comes news of a second GTA title for PSP, Vice City Stories, which will hit shelves on October 20.

The follow-up to last year's ever-so-slightly disappointing GTA: Liberty City Stories will again be set in familiar GTA territory - the Miami-styled Vice City - but will be built around a new storyline and new missions.

"The incredible PSP system technology allowed us to do things in Liberty City Stories we never thought possible on a handheld system," commented executive producer and Rockstar founder Sam Houser.

"We are excited to once again give our audience a fresh experience in one of their favorite locales in the Grand Theft Auto series. With Vice City Stories we look to once again smash expectations of portable gaming, bringing an all-new story and exciting new gameplay elements to this classic setting."

We'll be bringing you more details and the first ever screenshots shortly.
