Good news for PlayStation 3 owners looking to relive two of Rockstar’s best efforts in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. Two listings from the ESRB, the organization responsible for the lettered rating info on every game’s packaging, point towards Grand Theft Auto III and Vice City as releasing for the PlayStation 3.
Check the source links at the base of this post; each game got its own individual rating from the ESRB over the course of the last day or so. The ratings both list only one platform, the PlayStation 3.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is my personal pick for the best in the GTA line. I don’t know if that’s because I like the game, or it’s because I consider the Vice City soundtrack to be among the best licensed collections in gaming history. If all of that goodness comes to the PlayStation 3, regardless of HD remastering, I’m all in.
Don’t color this as anything more than a rumor just yet. The ESRB’s ratings almost always prove true, but nothing’s official until it comes from the companies responsible for development and publishing. If more news comes for either game, we’ll be sure to have it.
