As spotted by PSNStores, the ESRB has re-rated Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Both titles are listed with PlayStation 3 as platform and Sony Computer Entertainment America as publisher, suggesting a PlayStation Network release.

Fusible reports the domain name StarCraft.com may finally be the property of Blizzard, 15 years after the first game’s release. The domain recently changed hands and was re-registered to Mark Monitor, which has acquired several domains for Blizzard in the past. There doesn’t seem to have been a legal challenge so whoever the new owner is, they probably shelled out to kick off the RV buyer’s guide and boat site owners. Don’t rush off to take a look just yet; the domain hasn’t been updated yet, and it’s hosting some pretty dodgy-looking stuff.
