The ESRB, the board responsible for rating video games for their suitable audiences in North America, has produced Mature ratings for both Grand theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on the PlayStation 3. These ratings indicate that Rockstar will soon announce ports of both games for Sony’s PlayStation Network platform.

If you frequent this site, or you read our recent post about Grand Theft Auto: Vice City heading to iOS and Android, then you’ve probably already heard me wax poetic about my adoration for the 80s steeped entry in the GTA line. It’s the soundtrack above all else that made me fall in love with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

The ESRB rated Grand Theft Auto III ahead of its PlayStation 3 announcement, and that rumor turned out to be spot-on. GTA III launched for the PlayStation Network soon after. I put a lot of stock in these ratings for that reason.

Of course, without an official announcement, these ratings serve as nothing more than unofficial rumors.
