Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories ride onto PSN next week for $9.99/£7.99 each. The last half-year saw the arrivals of GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas on PSN as PS2 Classics, so it's no shock to see the two other PS2 GTA games join them. Both games originally rele...

Here's something Sony should add to its Girlz Play Too page: Beaterator. Timbaland's collaboration with Rockstar hits PSP (and iPhone) soon. While a supposedly fully-featured music creator may sound intimidating, Rockstar proves that Beaterator is easy enough for children to use. One of the cooler a...

You may (though you probably don't) remember all the way back to late 2007, when Rockstar picked a young producer by the name of Timbaland up off the streets and gave him a shot at his own PSP game, Beaterator.

Yes, we know, we're as crushed as you are. The musical beatmaking and music-mixing PSP game, Beaterator, by Rockstar games has been shoved back into 2009 because of fiscal year '08's robust lineup of titles, says the company.
