Eurogamer Interview Gordon Hall

Eurogamer have published an interview they had with Rockstar Leeds president Gordon Hall. The interview mainly focuses on the improvements that have been made over Liberty City Stories, and how the team have managed to compress so much data. Hall also reiterates the fact that there are currently no plans to bring Vice City Stories to PlayStation 2.

As well as this interview, Eurogamer also posted an article on the possibilty of San Andreas Stories. The article basically pulls some quotes from the aforementioned interview and puts them into perspective. Again they emphasise Rockstar Leeds' semmingly unprecedented skill at compressing data, and the advances in technology making it possible.

They've been able to "double the city size capable of fitting on a UMD," apparently. "At that rate we'll be able to go bigger the more we know and the more the technology moves on." In other words, don't rule it out.

What do you think about the possibility of San Andreas Stories on the PSP? Bear in mind the game will likely be cut down from San Andreas anyway, but with these compression capabilities, maybe it might not be so cut down as we think? Discuss in our forums.

Yeah a San Andreas Stories would be cool but it would take a couple of years to make, still it would be worth it. As for the VCS on PS2, I think in the end they'll probably do it but not after a while or they might just lower the price of VCS.
