Rockstar has cleared the charges against Vice City Stories this afternoon, confirming that the game will retail for GBP 19.99 when it launches on 9th March, which leaves you enough spare pennies to start your very own crime syndicate.

Originally a PSP game, it will be ported to PS2 and feature enhanced graphics as well as improved draw distance and overall performance.

Like Liberty City Stories on PlayStation 2, which was also ported from PSP, it won't feature a multiplayer mode - something Rockstar is keen to do, but only if it's done properly.

"We couldn't recreate the same thing we did on the PSP on the PS2, so unfortunately it's not on it," a PR spokesperson told Eurogamer.

It's certainly something Rockstar could do on Xbox 360 and PS3, which leaves us dribbling with gang-banging excitement for its potential next-generation offering.

However, you don't necessarily have to wait that long for a free-roaming city rampage, as Crackdown recently proved.

Make sure you "jack" our Vice City Stories PSP review while you're at it, which is smuggling further info through other areas of the site.
