Share And Comment

The popular PC version of GTA: Vice City has been pulled from digital shelves recently over music licensing issues. The sandbox title became unavailable to buy online after Sony Music Entertainment raised concerns after one of Michael Jackson’s songs  ”Wanna Be Starting Something’ can be heard on fictional Vice City radio station ‘Fever 105’.

Digital copies unavailable at this moment.

Rockstar has responded to the licensing issue first through one Serbian forum, but recently the supposed response popped up on the Steam forums.

“Due to some music licensing issues, we’ve had to temporarily remove Vice City PC from digital stores. We’ll make it available again as soon as possible,” it reads.

If you have already bought a copy of GTA: Vice City through Steam or any other digital outlets then you have no need to worry, you will still be able to play the game.

A second trailer for the forthcoming Grand Theft Auto V has hit the web, with a release date for Spring 2013 set ins stone.

When not fighting crime, I dabble in the art of online journalism. Alright, maybe it's not as exciting as headbutting everyday felons like a modern Bruce Wayne, but I need something that doesn't involve bludgeoning something. Get my kicks playing on a fat 80gb PS3, really need an upgrade......and a shave.
