The official US PlayStation Blogcast has mentioned something very interesting. According to them, Grand Theft Auto III is coming to the PS2 Classics section of the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, July 31st. Eurogamer notes an August 1st release seems possible for those in Europe.

This is great news for those who have been waiting for GTA III to hit the PlayStation 3 (especially if you got excited the two times GTA III and VC were rated by the ESRB) but unfortunately it seems that fans won't be getting an HD upgrade. It will just be a port of the original PS2 version and will likely cost $10.

Rockstar has not said anything about it as of this posting but if the release is actually happening this Tuesday it won't be long before they confirm it. Those on the Xbox 360 will continue to be disappointed since in a recent Asked & Answered, Rockstar admitted that "compatibility issues and other technical limitations" are preventing GTA III and VC from coming to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Check out the Blogcast here or below. If you find their voices annoying as hell, they mention GTA III starting at 10:50 and end at 11:05.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments below and join the fun at the Grand Theft Auto V forums!

I'm a little skeptical since it was a tiny mention out of the whole pod blogcast but we'll see what happens. Rockstar will be forced to reveal something soon if it's true. tongue.gif

I hope it is coming to PSN, I haven't played GTA III in years. My plan is to play all the GTA titles in order up to the release of GTA V.

And they just added this at the top:

"Note: Due to an unforeseen complication, the Grand Theft Auto III PS2 Classic is not publishing with today’s Store post. We will update you when a new release date has been identified. We apologize for the inconvenience. "

We made a note about this at the top of the post. There were some last minute issues with getting clearance for a certain audio track in the game; but the teams at Rockstar are on it to review how to best get this title on PSN.
