The American entertainment rating board, the ESRB, has recently rated both Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for the PlayStation 3, giving them the unsurprising “Mature” rating in the States.
This could be a clue that Rockstar are getting ready to at least release GTA: Vice City on the platform soon as part of the game’s 10th anniversary celebrations. iOS and Android versions for the title have already been confirmed, much like GTA III last year. However, GTA III wasn’t released on PS3 until September this year.
Whether Rockstar will have a similar release schedule this time around is unknown.
Rockstar may also just be getting San Andreas rated at the same time as Vice City to save time in the future, as San Andreas doesn’t celebrate its 10th anniversary until 2014. Yesterday it was discovered that GTA: Vice City had been removed from Steam, the reason most likely being something to do with the 10th anniversary.
