Some ideas from a thread in the General section.

Never really played the game, (Story) just messed around with the game. I never got into it.

Now GTA IV I loved!

Vice City no longer available

So I looked on the Steam website and the app, I don't own Vice City on Steam, I own it on another digital provider but I plan on getting it on Steam sometime to play on Mac. But I noticed that the game is no longer available to purchase on Steam, I wanna ask why? That game is the greatest of the GTA3 trilogy and it's a masterpiece... so why is it not available? Just wondering because I love that game and would like to purchase it.

No one knows, it could be returning with the updated tablet release coming soon, or it could be a licensing issue.

Yeah maybe, although it makes no sense to re-release a game in an updated format when they didn't do it for GTA3. I'm wondering why other places don't have these licensing issues.

It was on sale. Was being the keyword. Haha that's probably why it was on sale. It's strange that the game is no longer available on any DD service... I just bought the game too like a month ago. XP Looks like I was right to buy it.

Vice City removed from my GTA Complete Pack in my inventory -.-

My GTA Complete Pack stored in my inventory used to look like this

Soon after Vice City was removed for the store, it morphed into this

I've heard of games being removed from the store before, but not they should then take it away from those that bought it already.

Grand Theft Software... OK fine, Petty Larceny Software, but still...

If you bought it you have it. It is just not showing up in the list because the pack gets it's info from the store page.
