If you can pry your jaw from the floor after realizing GTA: Vice City was released ten years ago, you’ll want to buy it for Android and iOS this fall.

Rockstar Games is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its insanely-popular PlayStation 2 game by releasing it for mobile devices, with a new mobile-optimized control scheme and high-resolution graphics, plus “several enhancements unique to the iOS and Android.” While it’s not yet known exactly how much the game will cost, previous GTA games debuted for $4.99 on both mobile platforms.

In addition to the announcement, Rockstar is discounting its existing Grand Theft Auto games to 99c, including GTA III for Android and iOS, and GTA: Chinatown Wars for iOS.

      Fagmentation, you’re all right!
      Android is for the cheap wanna-be high tech person.
      The ANR (app not responding, just so you know) time is over guys. Surface is here, with WP8 around the corner or WP 7.8 you guys are saying to yourselves: Damn, why did I spent 150$ on a 3 years agreement for that cheap piece of crap they call a Galaxy Sux3 while I could have a better, stronger, quality handset. WP baby, wish you had one don’t you ?

      What this have to do with the news?
      Windows Phone 7 or 8 won’t even have this game… At least for now, I guess but not until they occupy a bigger marketplace and the cheaper one will the suffer the same fate as the cheaper and older android device; they won’t get GTA: Vice City.

      On topic:
      This is my favorite GTA. Great!

      “Android is for the cheap wanna-be high tech person”

      Wasn’t it Microsoft who standardized and optimized cheap low performance hardware to keep the costs of WPs down?

    What I love about GTA are the radio stations, they put so much effort into those. You’ve gotta love games with attention to detail

    Guess it’ll be no time at all before San Andreas is on mobile devices 😀
