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. The lack of a double pack listing suggests we’re probably looking at PS2 Classics re-releases rather than HD makeovers. I’ve sent Rockstar a gleeful fangirl email so fingers crossed for an official update soon.

Nicalis has announced via Twitter that NightSky has been rated by the ESRB. The action-physics puzzler was released earlier this year by the developer on PC so fans could finally get their hands on the game while the console version was being sorted. Currently, the rating for Australia and New Zealand is pending. Hopefully, once Nintendo approves, it will be released through the 3Shop soon. The firm will be showing the eShop version of the game as well as Cave Story at E3 next week. Thanks, NintendoLife.

The ESRB has rated Spec Ops: The Line M for Mature in the US, which is not really shocking, unless a shooter about Spec Ops missions wasn’t a large enough clue for some of us out there. However, apparently, you’ll be able to do more than just shoot people in the face in this game, thus the reason it has “The Line” as a subtitle.

The ESRB has rated Chrono Trigger for PSP and PS3. That’s about it, really. We’ll mail Square Enix and see if we can find out more. Until then, look for it to appear as a PSone Classic on PSN – finally. Looking over the list, we also noticed Final Fantasy VI has been rated as well. That’s also damn good news. Thanks, Kotaku.
