Some will remember that, back in January, the Entertainment Software Rating Board (North America’s BBFC counterpart) listed Rockstar classics Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City for the PlayStation 3.
This immediately prompted fans into thinking an “HD Classics” revival of the legendary sandbox titles was in the works, before the ESRB entry was withdrawn.
A few months down the line and both games have re-surfaced via the ratings boards, once again listed for PlayStation 3. It’s a peculiar scenario, though given the extreme demand and an opportunity to build hype for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, an HD Classic duo doesn’t seem to be out of the question. If not, there’s a high chance the two will appear as original PS2 titles, available to download from the PlayStation Store.
