    I was planning on purchasing Vice City and San Andreas from the swedish Mac App Store the other night, but upon searching for Grand Theft Auto nothing came up. It seems they've been pulled from the store :confused: Are they still there for you guys or does anyone know why Apple removed them?

    I only see Grand Theft Auto Muscle cars on the US MAS? Not sure if that's what you were referring to, or another game. I did not come up with anything else related to this game searching for GTA or grand theft auto

    They're missing from the Aus store too, which is a bummer because I was planning on purchasing them in a couple weeks to play during some long upcoming flights. Hopefully it's just a temporary pull :(

    Referring to GTA III, GTA: Vice City and GTA San Andreas on the store. :)

    Thanks - Not a game player so I wasn't sure if what I did see was relevant :)

    Rockstar just recently released GTA 3, Vice City, and San Andreas on Steam. Perhaps Apple has restrictions for selling games on other app stores if they're already in the Mac App Store? Also, I'm not positive, but I think the games are cheaper on Steam.

    Yes I saw all 3 titles on the US Mac app store a week ago and the next day I went to buy them they were all gone. This is extremely frustrating!

    I already own GTA 3 and Vice City and when I click on any of them in the "purchases" tab it gives me a "your request could not be completed" error. Hope they'll put 'em back on since I was planning to buy San Andreas too.

    On a similar note,

    are people finding when you update San Andreas to 1.0.1 it doesn't actually update the app? I must've "updated" about 5 times on both machines!

    Sorry for the double post, but I finally decided to start playing this game and I was wondering, is there any way to use a controller for this game? I realized that I am awful with the whole mouse/keyboard layout. I really don't know how you people do it.

    Finally, just saw they posted an updated version of San Andreas that fixes the lag every few seconds. Awesome! That was driving me crazy.

    Hey it’s right the new iOS 11 is a bit complicated if you want GTA you either search it on web and it will give the link of it to the App Store or you gotta find it in the today tab

    Welcome to MR's Forums. You replied to a 5-1/2 year old thread/post - things were a bit different with iTunes 10 back then…

    Also gone from Australian store. Probably Rockstar Games decision.
