Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City rated by ESRB for PlayStation 3

Grand Theft Auto III and its cousin from Miami, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, were recently rated by the ESRB for release on the PlayStation 3.

You probably won't be surprised to hear Grand Theft Auto III and its cousin from Miami, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, were recently rated by the ESRB for release on the PlayStation 3. After all, GTA III was recently ported to iOS and Android devices to commemorate the game's 10-year anniversary.

You also probably wouldn't be surprised to hear the ESRB claim these games to contain blood, gore, strong language, violence and sexual content, thus both of them being given a "Mature" rating, but, hey, I'm just covering all corners here. Rockstar Games, of course, has yet to confirm a release of either game for the PlayStation 3, though I'd certainly expect one soon, considering the company might want to focus the rest of its efforts this year on promoting Grand Theft Auto V, which we know next to nothing about aside from what we could gather from its trailer.

What'd be interesting to see here is if these supposed GTA III and Vice City re-releases will be standard definition or HDified for their (also supposed) PlayStation 3 debuts. Only time will tell, folks. Stay tuned in to Chatterbox HonestGamers FM for more as it comes.

Both these were on my list of games I would like to see added to the new Playstation 2 Classics section. Hopefully San Andreas isn't far behind.

I liked Grand Theft Auto III way better than Grand Theft Auto IV and I probably played more of Vice City than any of the games. Boy, I hope they took the opportunity to fix the multitude of glitches in these games, though! I remember a bad one in GTA III where you can't complete the full game if you had save data already existing on your card, or something... happened to me.

I'm hoping they "HDify" them. I downloaded the iOS version, but touch controls are ruining my fond memories of the game. Plus, no cheat codes. :(
