Rockstar PS2 titles rated for PlayStation 3 release

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 18 December 2012 23:50 GMT

The ESRB has re-rated six classic Rockstar titles, with three appearing in this week’s US PS Store update.

As spotted by PSN Stores, the re-rated games are Bully, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, Midnight Club, Midnight Club 2, Midnight Club 3: DUB Edition Remix and Red Dead Revolver.

All were originally release on PS2, but are now listed as PlayStation 3 titles.

Rockstar recently began bundling its games as the Rockstar Games Collection series, but the first and so far only volume contained only current-gen titles. This combined with the lack of Xbox 360 equivalent suggested we’d see these games in a PlayStation Store update rather than as a new retail bundle.

Update: And indeed, shortly after posting this story, the US PS Store updated with three of the six games.
