Thanks to April Fools being filled with lots of hoaxes and false information, the amount of legitimate news to report is quite small, leading today to be a very slow news days. So slow in fact that we’re actually going to tell you a release date for a release date of a box art for a video game.
Over the past few days, an unfinished painting of the Grand Theft Auto V box art popped up, with Rockstar saying on March 31st that it would be completed in the “next day or so, digital versions coming soon!” They narrowed down that “coming soon” to this week on their website, replying to a since deleted comment with:
The cover art is currently being painted as you’ve seen. Please stay tuned and we’ll have it here in digital form at the Newswire this week.
So, it looks like the box art we were hoping to see in January is arriving some time in the next few days. Showing up tomorrow though is Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories and Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories in the PS2 Classics section on the PSN. These will run you $9.99/€9.99/£7.99, and as Rockstar revealed, LCS is 3.8GB to download, with VCS taking up 3.9GB on your PS3 HDD.
As you may remember from last week, R* teased that we should “stay tuned” for more PS2 Classics. When someone commented with “Rockstar does not care about The Manhunt Fans! If they cared about them we would have had it brought out on the store by now!,” they gave this response:
Not true at all, we’re very proud of Manhunt and its sequel. Please stay tuned
If we’re to take this literally, it means that we may be seeing Manhunt in the PS2 Classics sometime soon. Since there’s no actual confirmation though, take it as a possible teaser right now, and if Rockstar does announce some new PS2 Classics, we’ll be sure to let you know.
Are you getting either GTA titles tomorrow? Would you buy Manhunt 1 or 2 if they came to the PSN? Let us know in the comments below.
