Grand Theft Auto III Coming to PSN

In January it was reported by various sources that Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City would be coming to PlayStation Network. From the Official PlayStation Blogcast we now know that Grand Theft Auto III will be released on PlayStation Network this Tuesday July 31st. No word yet when Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will make the inevitable jump.

What a bloody mess

This re-release will be a PlayStation 2 Classic iteration, if previous titles are anything to do by the game will be on sale for $9.99 (US) and will be a straight port of the original with no trophy support. While the release date of July 31st in North America, no other regions have been given a date for release. So it could be a little wait before the rest of the world enjoys the re-release.

Grand Theft Auto III was released on PlayStation 2 back in 2001, it was considered a massive jump in the Grand Theft Auto franchise and gaming in general it is also the fifth highest selling PlayStation 2 title ever. This is not the first time we have heard about Grand Theft Auto III this year, as it was recently ported to iOS devices.
