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.

Sony looks set to release Grand Theft Auto III and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City as PS2 Classics on PSN, according to recent ESRB ratings. As noted by Siliconera, San Andreas wasn’t rated, however. Sony Computer Entertainment America is shown as the publishers in the ratings, not Rockstar. PS2 downloadable classics have been available since last year in the US, but have yet to make the jump to Europe.

Rockstar’s Android and iOS release of PS2 era classic Grand Theft Auto III is so faithful to the PC version that a number of existing mods can be used with it. You won’t need to jailbreak your device or anything like that, but head over to The Tech Erra or XDA Developers for iOS and Android users respectively to get a full walkthrough.

“We were making up a lot of procedures as we went along, and we decided that the NPCs (Non Playable Characters) should talk and we would have to figure out how to make them talk (using motion captured cutscenes, something that had never really been done before, at least not on the scale we were doing it). So we decided that the game’s protagonist would not talk, partly to aid people identifying with him, but mostly because we had so many other problems to solve and this did not seem like a major issue. We started to discuss introducing a talking lead character when working on Vice City, but it was a lot of work. While the structure of GTA3 may seem obvious or natural now, and the use of cutscenes made in the game’s engine that look and feel like the game may seem simple and easy, it really was not the case back in 2001 when we had to figure out all of these things for the first time. Oh and in San Andreas, CJ calls Claude a mute because he does not talk and CJ finds this unnerving.” – Rockstar on why it went with a mute protagonist in Claude for Grand Theft Auto III.

Game Informer celebrated passing 200 issues recently, so to celebrate, they compiled a list of 200 games, which they think are the best games of all time.
The Legend of Zelda for the NES was the winner, followed then by Super Mario Bros, Tetris, Grand Theft Auto III and Half Life 2.
We’re absolutely sickened though that Metal Gear Solid 3 is near all the way the bottom though at 191. Sickened.
Find the top ten below, with the full 200 at Nintendo Everything.
