GTA: Vice City Stories - first look

Despite the launch of two brand new pieces of hardware this holiday season, and an overall focus on next-gen technology, Rockstar believes Vice City Stories can be the number one selling game of the fall. Given the series' overwhelming popularity (and the fact that the '80s rock sound is as prevalent as ever), that's not such a bold claim.

This one seems to incorporate many lessons learned with Liberty City Stories, offering more involved missions, a larger stable of vehicles and 100 songs (hopefully all licensed) to jam to. Unless some glaring problem manages to magically work its way into the development phase, expect this to sell about a billion units this fall.
