It seems that the PlayStation user has noticed an “oversight” (if we can define it that way) regarding the price of a classic chapter of Grand Theft Auto, itself included in the GTA Trilogy.
The compilation of classics, which caused discussions even in the physical edition (you can find it in any case at a great price on Amazon) can in fact be purchased separately on the various digital stores .
Now, after the trilogy in question has also recently landed on the Epic Games Store, it seems that someone has noticed a first problem on the PlayStation Store.
Indeed, as also reported by The Gamer, it is possible to obtain the entire trilogy for £54.99 on the UK store, but apparently the standalone Vice City remaster is offered at the record price of £123.99.
Doubtless due to a error, Rockstar Games has put the Definitive Edition of Vice City on sale separately from the bundle, for a exorbitant price which, at present, is more than double that of the entire trilogy if purchased together.
The problem was noticed by one Paul Lennon on Twitter, who promptly tagged PlayStation UK and Rockstar Games with a screenshot attachment.
You can find the image of the crime in the tweet below, which leaves very little room for imagination.

Many other users in the comments have verified – and confirmed – the error: perhaps, in case you want to get your hands on Vice City in its standalone version, it would be better wait for the game to return to the price list at a more “human” price, given that even in the Italian store the GTA in question currently costs a good 149.99 euros.
Staying on the subject, we recall that the turbulent launch of the Trilogy led to a drastic drop in Rockstar Games shares, despite the recovery seen in the following months.
