Very excited for tonight. Now we just need Baldur's Gate to...magically... come out this week, and it will be the best iOS game/app release week ever (if you also include MC4, improved Gmail, Youtube for iPad, iWork apps with Office compatibility that doesn't suck...)
I played Vice City a lot in college, especially my second year, when it came out for the Xbox. But I never played the missions, as Xbox magazine had CD with a save game file that took you to the end. So my friends and I just played around rampaging everywhere, rather than playing the missions. So Vice City will be both new and old for me. GTA III was the same way, though I did play the missions until the second island was unlocked. So with these games coming out for my iPad, at least with GTA III so far, I am actually playing the missions...
As far as file size goes, yeah, it is definitely clear that San Andreas may have some issues with staying under the 2 GB cap... here's hoping that Apple will raise that limit to 4GB in the next couple of years (along with coming out with 128 GB devices...)
