According to a listing update by the Entertainment Software Rating Board, Grand Theft Auto 3 and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will be coming to the Playstation 3.
I hope that their actually HD ports not just Ps2 classics.
i hope they are retail, one one bluray disk with trophiezzzzzzzzzzzzzzz! day 1!
Same here I really hope they're HD remasters or at the very least add some AA to them as that's all I really care about when playing older games on an HDTV.
The chances of that happening are the same as MGS4 getting trophies. With Sony adding some PS2 classics recently, that's exactly what this is going to be. I'd put money on it.
Any news on San Andreas? Would love to have all 3 on PS3. Some of the greatest games I have ever played. Would prefer them being on a disc as I dont have that much GBs left, but thats just me. I think highest chance will be them being on PSN store. Need to save up for a SLIM, 320gb. But with the Vita close I doubt I'll get it any time soon. On the Vita, will these GTA titles be on that? Because that would just be extremely EPIC. Or like @ZombieAssassin said a bit further down, San Andreas with GTA 5, a bit like what Medal of honor have done, or Assassins creed. Having SA downloadable for free :O Doubt it though. But a man CAN dream.
The only thing I don't understand is why would they do PS2 version releases? That's for titles that are not popular enough to warrant HD remakes and collections. GTA for sure will sell well so why not do it?
@irep Why don't you just buy a 320gb hdd for your current PS3? You could pick up a 320gb drive for peanuts these days.
who cares about shitty trophies
There not gonna be HD ports, its Killzone 2 all over again Id rather they do a HD Collection, but since when do gamers get what they ACTUALLY want
Killzone 2? Or do you mean Killzone 1?
OMFG I CAN DIE NOW!
I have a feeling that once some of you play these old games, your excitement will go away. These games just haven't aged well at all. After finishing GTAIV then going to San Andreas, I could hardly play San Andreas it sucked so bad.
Well I'm the opposite. I've been trying to get back into GTAIV since the GTAV announcement but I just can't get past the monotony. Meanwhile, I've still got San Andreas installed on my PC and I'm loving it.
? I played gta3 very recently, I have vice city, SA and GTA4 with expansions installed ready to play through. But I've had gta4 sitting for months and it's too boring to bother a second play through, yet I can't wait to find some time (a few hundred hours!) for VC and SA. Literally the only improvement GTA4 has over SA or VC is the graphics. It's still a good game, but doesn't even have a scratch on SA or VC.
Can't argue with that. But knowing that they can put these games out exactly as they are and still make plenty of money, you wonder if the motivation to improve them is there. Yes, they upped the resolution on the GTA3 ios game - but that's it. And what with them working on GTA5, would it be worth them going to all the trouble (and would it be something they even want to do? Potentially wasting time and resources etc).
I want san andreas too !!!!! And the kingdom hearts series !!!!
If Sony Computer Entertainment is publishing them, they are PS2 classics on PSN. If this was a retail release with trophies and remastered it would be published by Take-Two.
what about GTA:SA? and RS please make it a bluray disk HD collection
yeah me too, but I would lov to see San Andreas as an HD port with all the bling graphics and achievements! That would be great!
GTA5 is probably going to be a lot more like SA than GTA4 was. They will probably continue to have a gritty, serious main story but all the silly extra content will probably be in there somewhere. (btw, the game has been "finished" for nearly a year)
i loved vice city
Hopefully in HD with some trophies....a little control tweak as well
Controls are fine unlike GTA4.
GTA4 controls were fine.... some people didnt like the realisctic handling on the cars but it was welcome for this gen IMO
There was nothing realistic about GTAIV controls. Cars are usually able to make right turns at more than 10kph without without going into the opposite lane...or spinning out.
The cars in GTA4 didn't really handle anything like real cars, it seemed more like an arcade style....not that I minded it but like Animals said you spin out going slow as all hell in that game with pretty much any car. I never got why they didn't just make the cars handle a little bit more like Midnight Club games.
In my experience with GTA4 mashing the gas caused people to spin out..if you eased into the gas or tapped it spinning out wouldnt happend when starting to drive..the same would happen if you were in a real car....but dont get me wrong it wasn't simulation quality realism but much more realistic than previous GTAs IMO midnight club's controls were too arcadey / racer to fit into GTAs world....but i think a mix between GTA4 and MC:LA is the right mix for GTA5
gta 4 controls were broken. they fixed them in the bogt. the cars were broken an rockstar could learn a lot from Mafia 2. i love grand vice city but the ground combat controls are broken. don't think we'll get a big graphics upgrade. I hope for it but its not likely.
GTA4 car handling was like driving on ice.
I'm so excited for these two games. I hated GTA 4 controls and just the entire game.
"There was nothing realistic about GTAIV controls." This ^ How exactly can a handbrake make you accelerate :S
Awesome, but where is San Andreas? If that doesn't get an HD version I'm going to be pissed. :\
We can only speculate that they are doing something special with San Andreas.
I agree, san Andreas needs the HD remake treatment, R* normally puts a lot of care into their games, hopefully its not just PS2 classics
GTA5 is set in part of SA though...might be a turn off for Rockstar
Or they'll include SA with GTA5...a man can dream. EDIT: Lol just seen that LightSamus said the same thing.
Perhaps San Andreas is set to be included as a freebie with GTA V? They are related after all.
San Andreas will no doubt come as a free game with GTA V. Since this seems to be the in thing right now sticking a classic with a new game.
Oh, what I wouldn't give to have these games in HD with trophies. Sadly, these are probably just PS2 classics.
Could be a ps2 classic but this would be a good hd collection in promo for gta v and the vita. I would really love a chinatown style gta on vita but not top down and be san andreas stories. Also i hope the ds/psp china gta wanted system is in gta v. My fav wanted system
Most likely these are HD remasters, since when GTA3 for iOS and such had its trailer released, Rockstar said the footage wasn't for the iOS, so clearly it was PS3/360 since it was in HD. Either that, or we're being trolled and they'll just be PS2 Classics.
the 10th anniversary video was footage from the PC version
Got a source? Not trying to be an ass and calling you out. I'm just genuinely curious about this. I googled it and couldn't find anything. Kotaku said Rockstar told them the footage wasn't from the mobile version, so I thought that implied a re-release on something less mobile. Consoles were the first thing that sprung to mind.
@MrBeatdown check 0:39, there is a problem with the alpha channels (check the net and the trees, I've only seen this problem on the PC, not on the PS2) secondly there is no AA. thirdly the footage comes from a 4:3 source cropped to cinema widescreen (look at claude, you can never see his legs during gameplay, only in cutscenes) If this is a port for this gen consoles than it's an awnful port
According to the article this is PS3 only not PS3/360. #justsayin
Come on R* San Andreas was the highest selling game ever on PS2 We need an HD remake
I hope it's a HD Collection.
not likely. since it's directly to the PS store, it's going to be in the classic section.
"Grand Theft Auto 3 was first released for the Playstation 3 in North America on October 22, 2001" Wow I didn't know Rockstar was that early out.
HD or really why bother, rebuying games you very likely to have already owned.
want SA on Vita.
that would be amazing!
amazing played them like 10 years ago meh
there still baking grandmas cookies, there good.
I'd rather have GTA San Andreas tbh.. What I really want though is a Grand Theft Auto Collection for PS Vita. (Remastered versions of GTA 3, Vice City & San Andreas all in one PSVita cartridge) Hell yeah. :P
Wave 103, V Rock, Emotion 98.3, Flash FM are my fave!!!! Man, give me some Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Judas Priest, Anthrax, Blondie, Toto, Mr. Mister, Go West, The Outfield, TFF!!!
i know im getting them.
Make it for the Vita also and you have my $$$.
Vice City is my fav
Me too bought on steam sale not long ago for next to nothing.
I have copies of GTA 3/Vice City/San Andreas(and for good measure, the PS2 version of Liberty City Stories)and I can them on PS3 already so Im set. But San Andreas really needs a proper upgrade as the orginal pushed the PS2 to its limits.
Why not release it on vita?
I STILL to this day have the game saves of when I beat all 3 games just in case they are ps2 downloads instead of HD remakes. I'm glad I can play these again, now just for some news regarding San Andreas.
PLEASE make it a disc of HD versions R*!!!!!
I'm too busy playing Gta3 on my phone connected with a Sixaxis too care about what will likely be a straight port with no improvements.
I remember playing San Andreas on my 80gb PS3 with backwards compatibility and the graphics were much better than on the PS2. There was more AA. So if these aren't remastered in HD hopefully they'll have more AA when upscaled on the PS3
