Do you listen to the PlayStation BlogCast? I don’t, it’s entirely too serious for me. I should though, it’s quite informative. Take this week’s show, for example. About eleven minutes in, they casually toss in the information that Grand Theft Auto III is coming to the US PSN Store next Tuesday.
They then spend ages talking about another PS2 Classic, War of the Monsters, which is coming at the same time.
I’ve spent the last week playing GTAIII on an Android tablet and it’s still brilliant, ageing control quirks aside. This version appears to be a direct drop of the PS2 game, rather than the 10 year anniversary edition which hit mobile platforms. Presumably that means it won’t have the updated textures or new user interface but the gameplay should still be solid.
GTA: Chinatown Wars is being enabled for the PS Vita, too.Hopefully this is paving the way for Vice City and San Andreas to also appear on the PSN Store.
