Grand Theft Auto: Vice City PC temporarily withdrawn from sale

Friday, 16th November 2012 04:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City has been withdrawn from sale via PC digital distributors. GameInformer reports Rockstar sited musical licensing issues for the withdrawal, which it calls temporary, and CinemaBlend believes a DCMA flag is responsible, thanks to a claim by Sony Music Entertainment and Warner Chappell on Michael Jackson’s Wanna be Startin’ Something. The iOS version’s release should not be affected.

    Those DMCA robo-takedown notices have got to be terminated with extreme prejudice. They are the greatest blight on the WWW right now. Seriously, heads need to roll, as gruesomely as possible.

    Great victory for them, they took down a 9 years old video game…
