The latest Entertainment Software Rating Board listing update has revealed that Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City are coming to the Playstation 3. Sony Computer Entertainment is being listed as the publisher for both games, making it extremely likely that they are PS2 Classic re-releases on the Playstation Network. You can check out some screens from the two games in the slideshow to the left of this article.

Grand Theft Auto 3 was first released for the Playstation 2 in North America on October 22, 2001. It received an M (for Mature) rating by the ESRB due to blood, strong language and violence. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City then followed in October 27, 2002. The sequel got an M (for Mature) rating as a result of contents relating to blood, gore, strong language, strong sexual content and violence.

It is unknown when will Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City be released for the Playstation 3.

Ah bittersweet.

I have been hoping these games would make the jump, but in an HD remake package with trophies. I stilll have these for PS2 and my PS2 is still kicking, so without new add-ons (trophies) I will unfortunately have to pass :(

Platinums: Red Dead Redemption, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Terminator Salvation, Uncharted

Ive wanted this to happen for ages :D HOPEFULY they are hd remakes with trophy/3d support.

Sony is adding Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City to PlayStation Network as downloadable PS2 Classics in the future. Both games were re-rated by the ESRB as PlayStation 3 games. Gran Theft Auto: San Andreas was not on the list.

It's just the Playstation 2 Classic version on PSN nothing added to these games.

That's what I thought when I first read this news.



Can someone please explain how it is now possible to do these PS2 games when Sony said it was impossible?

OT: First day buy for me!

kinda late if you ask me why no SA? its been on live for awhile now

even if they were remade and had trophy support it be hard for me to replay em at this point in time maybe during 06-08 id give em a another go

just bring on gta5 R* this yr, its going on to 4+ yrs since gta 4 released, last gen they had 3 good gtas in a span time of 3 or so yrs
