Pwnage alert: GTA: VCS requires FW 2.81 – confirmed

GTA VCS pwnage?

A lot of us here are waiting anxiously for Rockstar LeedsGrand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories. And by the time you’re reading this, it’s already out there on the shelves. But a lot of you might start to wonder if it’s going to be worth it because… [cue lightning in the background] it will require you to run firmware 2.81 on your PSP. Oh yes. (Oh noes.)

It has been confirmed by GTAPSP.com, and they’ve posted a list of little knick-knacks that you might want to know about the game. The other tidbits of info are pretty minor, especially compared to that first bullet-point which is nagging at our brains:

  • The game requires PSP firmware version 2.81 to play. An update is included on the game disc.
  • The city appears to be VERY similar to the original Vice City in terms of layout.
  • There is a pedal bicycle in the game and controls are said to be initial to San Andreas.
  • You’ll start out on the “second island” from Vice City with access to areas like the airport, army base and downtown.
  • Vic can swim for over one minute before drowning.

Ultimate pwnage? Well, a lot of you guys must be so torn now, whether you’re willing to upgrade your PSP (if it isn’t yet) to 2.81 just to play the game. But think of it this way: it was bound to happen. We all saw it coming anyways. Now or never, folks… Maybe it’s time to own up…
