GTA Vice City: Who Is Getting It

After some delays and much waiting it is finally out. I'm leaving for best buy right now and picking it up on my lunch break. Its only 40 bucks on sale. Anyone else picking it up?

I will. If it's on sale now then I guess I may have to but it now and let it dust for a few weeks until I finally get my new computer...

Dammit, they sold out in 30 minutes today. The store only had 100 units. Yes.... only $40 bucks Every other new release is $50. With the limited supply they could easy sell them for $60 or more and still be out of stock. Anyway, better luck tomorrow.

I pre-ordered it from best buy last friday. Today i got an email saying it was backordered! I can't wait to get it. Might go elsewhere to try and find it. Looks like a really sweet game.

Hmm. I walked into Best Buy right as the guy was putting them on the shelves. I walked up grabbed one, wrote a check, and left. If I had gotten there 15 minutes later I know I wouldn't have gotten one. Anyway, YES the game is worth the money, the motorcycles are simply fantastic! There are dirtbike tracks on the beach and the arena hosts dirtbike competitions. You can buy pizza at the pizzeria for $8 and it puts your health back at $100. Very realistic -

If you dont have it yet, feel free to ask me some questions, I'll try not to spoil it too much.

My roommate got it yesterday, but one thing that I've noticed is that it sucks without cheats. Is it that instead of the FBI coming after you by the 5th star, it’s Miami Vice?

I played GTA3 with at least the improved driving skills on, so what if I always blow up the car or drowned myself...

We can't get any of the cheats we've found so far to work.

Lephron there are basic weapon cheats, armor and health cheats out now.

Today I bought a hideout (you have to buy hideouts in this game) that cost me $14,000. I fit 6 cars in my garages (3 garages). Also, this particular hideout comes with a rooftop helicopter that you can fly around. Pretty Cool! Also, the missions are funner I think in VC. Mini - helicopters with explosives, shooting people missions from boats and helicopters, even stealing tanks while army men take a doughnut break.

I ended up getting it the 2nd day it was out. There was quite a crowd when I got it. When they opened the doors everyone ran it but had no clue where it was in the store. Most of the people ran to the opposite side of the store before they realized where the PS2 section was. That game is the best 42 bucks (with tax) that I have spent on a video game.

Personal favorite new features: (in no order)
-Motorcyles, helicopters, and airplanes that actually have wings this time
-shooting out tires
-shooting people in cars
-guns are much improved
-VRock radio station!!!

Hey-

I bought it on Tuesday at Media Play. They opened at 10 am with 150 copies and when I got there at 4 pm they had 15 left.

Where is the hideout to buy with the helicopter on top?
How do you buy things like the Malibu Club, Strip CLub, or Film Academy?
How do you enter the competitions in the statdium?

Thanks,
Airone

The hideout with the helicopter is by the downtown, its labeled on the map as "hyman condo" or something like that.

Until now I didn't take a close look around the airport but I would say only 727.

Already have 14% ...

damn, maybe if there is a GTA5 there will be better planes, who knows though. i still think there should be like a GTA world, where you steal a plane and have to take it to another city or island or something like that
