  Playstation Magazine with Liberty City Stories Updates - Updates

US Playstation Magazine has released a new issue with updated information on Liberty City Stories for the PSP, Sony's portable playstation console. Here's what the magazine had to say;

- The PSP engine has been worked on for two and a half years already, so it only took Rockstar three weeks to get LCS running on the PSP. With the technical hurdle out of the way, Rockstar quickly got to work on making LCS grow.

- Aside from quicker missions and shorter cut-scenes, essentially everything else will remain the same due to not having many restrictions on the PSP. Rockstar wants LCS to feel like you are playing in just another side of the GTA universe, instead of "I'm playing the crappy portable GTA."

- Rockstar is putting forth as much effort for the portable GTA as they did with GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas. The high production value with attention to detail, soundtracks, voice recordings, etc. will not change on the PSP.

- The world is roughly halfway between GTA3 and Vice City; it's longer than GTA3 and shorter than Vice City.

Dan Houser had made a comment in the magazine to answer questions that Rockstar are 'Milking' the Grand Theft Auto series to make money. Here is what he had to say;

.. And we are very clear, and I hope what you saw today shows that: We are not interested in milking stuff to make money. I mean, of course we want to make money, it's a commerical economy. But we are actually doing the most creative sh*t we can, and we're making games that are good. We're not going to be like, "We need to maximize revenue." It's just not our way; we try to make commercial art here. And it has to be commercial because it's expensive and someone has to pay for it, but we do see it as an art, and when it stops being like that, that's when we lose it.

He goes on to say that Rockstar have not lost their creative drive yet, and they are extremely aggressive about making sure that the games have new features and exciting things to do with high production values. Which is good. He also explains the reasoning behind using only the experts on games instead of placing juniors and assistants on other games. They want to put forth the best effort possible. They can make one game a year that is great which is why they don't make 20 crappy games a year. People don't make this correlation. They really love Rockstar's games and want them to make more, but what they don't realize is the quality wouldn't be there.

Amen. There is suprisingly little information being released about the game, which is similar to the way the press releases were handled for GTA3 and Vice City on the PS2. Personally I think they released too much info about San Andreas before its release, which lead to some people being a bit disappointed with the game.
